  1. Hello All, I have been dealing with moderate to severe acne for about the last 2 years. I had slight acne in highschool but nothing out of the ordinary for kids that age, but it has progressively gotten worse. So has my self esteem and confidence. I have an appointment with my FOURTH dermatologist on monday. How do I finally convince him that I need accutane? My skin is an oil slick by noon everyday (if I shower around 8-9am). I often have to shower twice a day just to clear
  2. Hello, Thanks for taking the time to read this. Anyways, saw my term today as I have no seen much result with my antibiotics (doxy 100mg daily). I went through a terrible initial breakout with my doxy..probably worst breakout of my life during week 4-8.

  3. I'm starting to get really fed up with my antibiotic prescription (doxy) Is it possible antibiotic can make acne worse for some people?

I'm currently using a good cleaner for my acne-prone skin but it does dry my skin out a little, especially if I'm dehydrated at all. Anyways, Ive tried many moisturizers and have yet to find one that doesn't make my t-zone look extremely oily after a couple hours.

  6. Hello everyone, New to the forums here. I'm a 20 year old male. I've been struggling with moderate/sometimes severe acne for about a year and a half now. It was essentially obsolete in high school..never anything to be concerned about. Then I started working out/taking supplements and I think my horomores are now out of whack. Anyways I've seen two different derms and a skin specialist. I've been on doxycycline for 7 weeks and seen no results. I wash my face a minimum of twi
