  1. I went to see a dermatologist once, but he gave me this medication that I had to apply topically. I had to mix color in with it to make it my skin color. I didn't even apply it once. It was too much of a hassle. I don't really see what a dermatologist could do for me, since they can't help so many other people. If this was something that I knoew that they could help me with I would go, but I know that all they can do is make it better, not cure it, and a cure is what I am looking for.

  2. Hey Dan,

    Well I used 2.5 % BP and it worked pretty good, but my face was very red because of it. And I know my skin won't get used to it, because I have been trying it for about a year now. I moisturized in the morning and in the evening, both time I would put on BP. I don't even do in water stuff anymore, because I think the pool water was not good for my skin, so I teach scuba diving and lifeguard, but do not teach kids how to swim. But I hate making concessions like this, because I feel like acne are getting the better of me. I like to be able to do all that I would do if I didn't have them.

    As far as accutane, I really won't ever use it, because of all the side effects. I am very health concious, so I don't want to hurt my body in any way. Though sometimes I think, what the hell, I would do anything to have clear skin, but I never end up doing it after I think about it. Plus I should let you guys know that my acne isn't that bad these days, its just that I am getting tired of it. Maybe mild to moderate, and I know that Accutane is meant only for serious cases.

    I am trying to get rid of my acne mby meditation and self-healing right now. I am trying to imagine all of my cells killing the bacteria. I know you will find this silly, but I never. EVER get sick, and if I feel like I am coming down with a cold, I just do the same thing and I don't get it, even when everyone around me is sick. So I believe I can get rid of my acne this way too. I have been putting off trying it for too long. I will let you guys know how it is turning out. So far, since I have been doing it, 3 days now, I only got one pimple on my face and that is it. I think as I get better, this will change to 0. Hopefully........hehhehe. Well thanks for all the support guys.

  3. Hey Frances,

    Well the problem is that I really don't think that my skin likes BP. I have tried it for a long time but it just doesn't work for me. Plus since I work as a swimming instructor and a scuba diving instructor, it gets washed away soon, and I can't reapply it all the time. What about this B5 thing. Is that worth a shot.

  4. Hello to everyone on the board here. I am a new member, and have joined to talk to someone who could understand what I am going through. I am getting depressed over the fact that I am 23, just turned 23 in fact, and I still have acne. I have had them since I was 13. That is 10 years. And they used to be pretty bad around the age of 15, and have not been since, but I still would say I have mild to moderate acne, depending on the day.

    I don't want anyone here to think I am shallow, but it really is starting to bother me that I have acne. I don't let it get in the way of things, but that was all fine and nice since I kept thinking that I was going to be rid of them. I really hope this is one of those prolonged puberty things. But I would love to wake up and not rush to the bathroom to see if I have any new pimples and how my existing ones look. I am a fairly handsome guy other than for my acne, and I have been working out for quite a few years. I like to look nice, though I never dress up, but always dress sporty, because I believe in comfort over looks. I just wish I had a clear face to go with it.

    I just don't know what I am going to have to do to get rid of these little devils. I am hoping that they go away on their own soon, but I doubt it. I have tried a few things to get rid of them, but none worked. The regimen on this website worked a bit, but my skin was too sensitive for BP. I sleep 9 hours a night, I play sports and work out, drink plenty of water, eat correctly and still they are here........hehhehehe. What is a man to do.

    I feel like now acne are getting in the way of the things I want to do in my life, because they are on my mind constantly. Constantly. I do hope I don't come of vain, because I think I am not, but I really can't stand acne. Well, just needed to vent. By the way, once again, a big hello to everyone on the site, since this is my first time here. Hope we can help each other get over this little problem.
