Every once in a while I get a little spot that dissappears within the same day. I suffered since my junior year of high school (severe) and am now in my junior year of college. The only thing that had any success was stopping facial cleansers and cleaning products all together. Seriously people - I wish I would have nev
  2. Lots of good discussion. Vanbelle (sp?) I know exactly what you are talking about. What I have learned is that I actually don't have completely oily skin but a mixture of oily/dry.

  5. A little about my history with acne. Around age 16 I got my first signs of acne. Very large cysts, inflammation, scarring. Went to see a dermatologist and was prescribed tazorac, doxycyclin (sp?), and benzaclin.
