  1. All of the above is true. I took Accutane I believe in 2012 and ended my course early 2013, and since then the oil my skin used to produce has drastically reduced. Your oily skin will reduce after Accutane. If it's still bothersome, you could try taking Fish Oil pills and Vitamin D3, but do that AFTER Accutane, due to it maybe having the possibility of interfering with the drug itself. Hope I helped.
  2. Hey everybody, I've been on Clindamycin Phosphate 1%, Minocycline 80mg 1x Day, and BP Fash Wash 5% for a week now (all in the morning). So far, the only things I've noticed is that my face is much more red, and I've had an initial breakout. My chin and jawline just has multiple whiteheads compared to the 1 or two it had prior to the medication, and my forehead is still with small, bumpy pink acne spots. Is it common to experience an initial breakout with these products? PS: I take V
  3. Hey everyone, It's been a long time since I've posted anything, so I'll try to be more active in the community. ANYWAYS Recently, I have been having problems with my skin. I've been having breakouts and my red marks haven't completely faded, so I decided to go to the dermatologist. My dermatologist has prescribed me Clindamycin Phosphate 1% Topical, Benzoyl Peroxide face wash 5%, Solodyn (80mg Minocycline), and two weeks from now I must start Tazorac (Retin-A), to which she gave me the o
  4. Hey man, Haven't been on acne.org lately, so sorry for the late response. Yes, my face is 10x better than here in the picture. I dropped Doxy a month and a half ago since it did absolutely nothing for me. I began taking Zinc Gluconate Chelated (50mg), Fish Oil 1500mg, and Vitamin D3 5000 IU each once daily, and I quit dairy products as well. My face has only improved since that 1 month ago. It's a bit red and dry now due to the cold weather coming in, but nothing Aloe Vera gel can't
  5. Horrible idea. Try aloe vera (but extracted by yourself from the plant, NOT BOUGHT IN A BOTTLE).
  6. They're both Vitamins needed for your body. I don't see why not.
  7. To reduce the redness (which is what I see), try natural aloe vera gel, extracted straight from the plant by yourself.
  8. Ok, so there is multiple variations of Zinc out there, and I don't know which one would be the best to choose from: -Chelated Zinc -Zinc Glucose -Zinc Picolinate Those are the three types of Zinc I've read about that best work for combating hormonal acne. Accutane, Doxycycline, BP, Retin-A, Tretinoin cream, and Tazorac have not worked for me, so don't suggest them please. I've read the symptoms for lack of Zinc and I match every single one of them. I'm definitely taking Zinc no matter
  9. I do believe you're right. I really don't want to take Accutane again though.My initial breakout was so bad that it destroyed my psychological state of mind and killed my confidence, and even though it did clear me up, it was only for 5-6 months that my skin was "clear" (and I say that because I was full of red marks, which basically looked like acne to me). It's mostly the climate I live in (Hot and Humid) and the type of skin I have (Oily/Sensitive) that causes most of my acne. I still want to
  10. Hey all, Well I've noticed a pattern with my skin. During the summer and fall, my skin tends to breakout every year ever since I moved to Miami, FL (3 years ago). If you've never been in Miami, the climate here is hot as balls and extremely humid due to the oh so wonderful Everglades being our neighbor (The Everglades is a swamp, if you didn't know). I, naturally, have oily skin and, to top it off, have sensitive skin as well. I've noticed that during the winter/early spring periods, I d
  11. So being in the sun (with sunscreen on) is good if you have acne/marks? Mild to moderate acne, that is. Also, any solution for male hormonal acne? That seems to be my case. Thanks in advance.
  12. No I mean if you have taken the actual Zinc tablet for acne before. It works wonders for hormonal acne and getting rid of oily skin. I have yet to try it since I'm on doxycycline, but the doxycycline has been useless for me, so I'm considering on taking the Zinc soon. Just go on Google and search up "Zinc for acne". It should show.
  13. Hey all, I've been taking Doxycycline 200mg a day (two 100mg tablets; one every 12 hours) for the past month and a half, and honestly, I have seen almost no results with my acne. In fact, I believe it has gotten worse periodically. My acne is 100% hormonal and my skin is of oily nature, and I've taken doxycycline before but with huge results (left me clear 2 years ago for around 3 months). My acne has been consistently on my jaw and chin and lower cheeks. I was reading online that breako
  14. Happens to me. I've gotten over what people think about me because at my age (I'm 17), we tend to be really superficial, but only the people that are worth your time will accept you for who you are, and it's true. I rarely cancel plans anymore, but I can't deny that there are days where I look at myself in the mirror and get depressed because of my acne or how I look, etc. Don't blow off plans with your friends though because of your acne. Reason? They're your friends for a reason. They love
