  1. Melinda- I had severe cystic acne when I was younger but it faded away throughout the years. I'd break out in cysts here and there but it wasn't a frequent occurance. I feel like with all medications it gets worse before it gets better. Of course, your medical doctor will know if you are reacting well. Scarlettbuzz- I have had acne for 11 years. I know this information already but thank you for sharing. If acne could just be cured by those steps, I would not have severely damaged skin with ic

My skin is getting smoother and I think all the gunk underneath my skin is coming out (explains the random bad break outs..). I'm seeing my endocrinologist in January so maybe he will add birth control then! I tri
  5. Hi acne.org! I've been a member and a lurker of this site for way too long. I forgot the password for my old account(s) so I made a new one. Anyway, like everyone else, I have tried everything under the sun besides Accutane. My old, well-known dermatologist used to tease me with it.. long story but she is famous and unfortunately, only cares about her public appearances and money. I think she forgot why she became a dermatologist in the first place. In addition, I have facial hair and hyperpig
