  2. I am on week 5 of my 5 month course of accutane. 40mg a day. Im a male 219lbs. the first month, i was taking Amnesteem and within two weeks i had dry lips and dry face with no oil at all. I loved the dry face because i know there was no oil to produce new acne and i was flaky. Month two comes and i picked up my prescription, and this time they gave me Absorica 40mg once a day. Ever since starting Absorica, I have slight oily t-zone. Never has this at all with Amnesteem in my first mo
  3. I have been prescribed minocycline 100mg twice daily for acne for 3 months Went to different doctor and continued mino 100 mg twice daily for another 3 months so 6 months total of using this medication. thats basically 200mg of mino a day for 6 months! I have now noticed a birthmark like mark on my lower lip just just appeared out of no where. researched a bit and im almost sure the mino caused this. i was stupid to take it for so long. The mark is called Labial melanotic macul
  4. I going to the derm few days for acne scars. I've been researching and excision seems really good for the scars i have ( many ice picks, rolling, depressed) The derm is an old guy with 30+ years experience with cosmetic dermatology for his practice.

  5. From what i could tell, it was maybe getting like that. I only shaved my head once and there was many red spots. they were literally like pimples sometime pustules and i used to pop them. But i never saw them like that in the pictures. in those pictures, those are like red patches. Mine were bumps and mini cystic acne. like half the size of a U.S dime for some of the bigger ones i got. Ingrown hairs are possible for the scalp area. Are you of African-American descent with curly hair? No im

  9. I had a nasty outbreak of acne on my scalp for like 6 years. had a bad habit at picking my hair at the acne spot on my scalp. I realized i was getting acne like bumps on my scalp form major stress and plus i have oily skin that made it worse. Head is clear now with occasional acne, one day i got a very short haircut and later on i noticed a bunch of mini ice pick dents in my scalp. It was truly heartbreaking. Felt embarrassed and still do if i get a short cut. I mean theres gotta

What treaments can make it look better than this? I have very oily and sensitive skin. Im olive complex.
