  1. Thursday update - (those pictures were taken on a really bad day btw) My skin is clearing up more and more. I have one active whitehead on my cheek and one on forehead (first forehead spot in nearly a year) skin seems to be getting clearer each week. I have, as of today, started using 100% aloe vera gel to try and treat the PIH and red marks. I'll update with pictures when I feel substantial progress has been made. Plus I will use a better camera because the low pixel camera I used has just made
  2. [5th sunday was missed! Thursday 5th week*. I started pigging out on awful food and fell back in to drinking tons of diet coke in the past week and my skin is awful this morning. I took pictures to show you how nasty it has gone. Not though my acne is a lot better than it was a year ago. A lot of those red marks are just PIH. attachment=45079:owain 010.JPG]
  3. I have a lot round my neck and some on my face but I have it exactly where you have!
  4. I'm about 1 1/4 months in to my antibiotic treatment and about a week and a bit in to my Duac treatment. This stuff is incredible. Over the last week it's faded a lot of PIH and the spots I had are nearly gone!

    Pih

    I've been on antibiotics for over a month now and I've been using Duac. Most of my spots have gone but I have tons and tons of PIH. Is there anything I can do to reduce them or at least improve the look of the PIH?
  6. 4th Sunday? This Duac has cleared the breakout I had pretty well. Back down to about 7 spots on my neck. This is the clearest my skin has been in years but the duac is making my face red at times. tons of PIH atm. Not dark but just like a light red colour.
  7. I used it a few years ago, it took about 4 months to work but it cleared my skin up better than anything, I went from severe acne to flawless skin with this miracle cream, unfortunately though, after a year it stopped working, either my skin adapted to the antibiotic, or it just got even more severe so that Duac no longer was enough (more likely). I'm surprised you're on an oral antibiotic aswell though, Duac is an antibiotic cream itself, surely being on two antibiotics is not a good idea? Besi

  9. I started oral antibiotics; Tetralysal 300 (lymecycline) about a month ago and it was helping my acne. Before this I had sufficiently removed much of my once very severe acne through using sudocrem. I went back to my doctor to pick up a new batch of antibiotics and he was at a loss as to why my previous doctor hadn't given me a topical gel to use while on the antibiotics. He gave me Duac once daily and after a few days I can say that this is the best acne cream I have ever used! It has reduced s
  10. Ok on sunday I had broken out again. This was only in the mouth area but it's pretty frustrating. It was my fault for getting no sleep and drinking too much. Anyway I went to a new doctor today as I needed to pick up my 28 days supply of antibiotics and he cut the crap and gave me two months worth straight off and prescribed Duac once daily with it. Has anyone else used this?
  11. 2nd sunday. Skin has been really red all week. I got a big whitehead on my top lip that burst and went really sore and a large papstules? red lump under the skin on the corner of my mouth. I got both of these about 5 days ago. The spot on my lip has gone and the big spot has gone down quite a lot. About 4 spots altogether now and the PIH is slowly fading.
  12. I'm seeing massive progress after a week and a few days. My skin was already starting to heal by itself and the sudocrem has been the biggest factor but the antibiotics have made it so no new spots are coming up which allows me to deal with any that are left.
  13. 1st Sunday - I only have 2 spots and one new one today. Total gone from like 20 to 3. All I have now is fading PIH. I think it's a combination of my skin already getting ride of the acne naturally, the sudocrem and the new antibiotics. So happy
  14. Hi well this is my second topic on this forum but I thought seen as though I had started antibiotics yesterday, I might as well make a log from the start. I'll give some background information. When I was 14 I started getting really bad acne. I had mild cystic and tons of spots. Now I battled through it and actually went through the worst without using any treatments (well apart from clearasil which made the acne worse) I'm 17 now and about 7 weeks ago I started using sudocrem. My acne improved
