  1. I'm glad you found something that worked for you.I have some of questions, Do you think this would work with green tea instead? How many cups is a "pot" roughly? How many tea bags do you use with this pot? What brand of tea do you use? Thanks!
  2. Thank you But that's a very old photo from when I was on antibiotics. They worked great for a year! 99% clear at the time. But sadly I grew resistant. I was also worried about my gut bacteria. I haven't been that clear since unfortunately. In 2011 the derm I saw wanted to put me on 40mg a day. I think I weighed about 11 stone at the time. My acne was arguably moderate, but he insisted on the higher dose as a start, and said that out of his past patients, only a couple have required a second
  3. I'll look into them. Thank you.
  4. Hello, I find myself back here again. I'm at a loss with my skin. I turned 24 in June, and my skin is worse than ever. Over the years I've tried diet changes, antibiotics, benzoyl, countless cleansers and currently I'm trying isotrex (topical isotretinoin) while washing with water and using cerave moisturiser on top. The isotrex clearly isn't working despite using it for 3 months. I suspect my skin is too sensitive to it because it contains alcohol. I don't know what to do. I have flat po
  5. Hey, those are fantastic results, I'm glad you found something that works! Do you mind telling me if you use the cream or the gel version of Retin A? I'm wanting to try it as my skin is similar to what yours was. Thanks in advance!
  6. Can it be prescribed in the UK by GP's? Or can you only get it from Derms? Thanks!
  7. Interesting. One of them is very faded, and at certain angles you can see a dent in my cheek where it was. I don't think that's ever going to go now.
  8. Hi, I've had this cluster of flat red marks for months now, and they don't seem to be healing or getting lighter. I assume they're permanent, or still active maybe? They are not sore. What's some effective ways to lighten or get rid of these marks? It's very frustrating.
  9. Thanks for being honest. I actually did use BP for 3 months, with a moisturiser and jojoba oil. My face was like leather and tomato red. In fact, my profile picture was taken during that period last year, as you can see, I was rather red haha. So 8 years you've been on the drug? Wow. Is your acne still persistant? What dosage are you on? Did you come off the drug only for it to return? Also what's considered a big dosage?
  10. I have it in front of me. 2 boxes of 20mg capsules. £45. Here's what my skin looks like at the moment. It's so damn typical that my skin was awful a couple of weeks ago, and it has actually CLEARED UP a hell of a lot, the weeks leading up to this day. Still some blemishes and whiteheads, but better. I don't know anymore... I've done nothing different. Perhaps it's because I've worked out in the sun for the last week? Please tell me I'm not crazy and about to make a huge mistake.
  11. Thanks for the reply. That's good to hear. Is there a particular brand you would recommend?
  12. My derm has given the go ahead, since my blood test results came back as very low cholesterol. I fear I may be forced to wear glasses since dry eyes are a common side effect. Does anyone have experiences with using eye drops with contact lenses while on the drug? I want to avoid wearing glasses if possible. Thank you.
  13. Hi chiron, If you don't mind me asking, how bad was your acne when you took accutane in 91? Has the acne come back after you stopped the drug? Thanks Hi chiron, If you don't mind me asking, how bad was your acne when you took accutane in 91? Has the acne come back after you stopped the drug? Thanks
  14. ClearDreaming and killertofutaco, those are the best posts I have read on this forum. jwitz, even if you are amongst the few people who develop this post isotretinion persistent dry eye problem you speak of (I've not actually noticed it on this forum, so in the real world I would imagine the affected % must be minuscule), then is it not better to wear glasses and be acne free? Does acne suit you better than glasses do? Don't get taken in by the internet horror stories like I was when I was your
  15. The main concern I have is with wearing contacts. I hate wearing my glasses outside of the house since they do not suit me at all. I have read quite a few posts of people saying that even after the accutane, they still experience dry eyes which prevent them from wearing contacts anymore. This alone is making me want to avoid it now.
