  1. Your looking for something that's about the size of your thumb nail (and bigger) hard and painful to touch, looks like a big lump, I know some people who've never seen one think that a large spot can sometimes be a cyst, guy I kinda knew in high school had cystic, really red and angry looking lumps on his face, he told me they feel like someone's constanty got a finger poked in his cheek sooooo... hope this helps a little.
  2. Hey XGamerX, do you still take the B5 at all in any doseage? I'm sat infront of my vitamins etc. I'm taking roughly 200% RDA of A,C,D,E, B1, B2, B6, B12 (%1200 of this,) and then again 200% RDA of zinc, iron etc. in total 32 vitamin and mineral sources all in one capsule (each one has 100% RDA of the above, taking them twice a day) Also sat infront of me is 500mg Pantothenic Acid (B5) I'm not going to mega dose on this cause I can't be bothered really at £10 for 90 capsules heh. So, (th
  3. Alcohol can worsen it, dehydrates your bodt or something, I always get a few new spots after a night out drinking.
  4. from the pictures I wouldn't call those cystic :-s I used to get the same more or less, kid who went to my school had cystic acne, the size of your thumb (not just the nail)
  5. My god, find me one bit of evidence that it's harmeful to the body (im talking major illness etc not the bloody shits) and I'll retract my comment. Until then if it works don't knock it.
  6. Yeah, don't let it beat you and kill off what you like doing, if you let it etch away at your life then soon you'll be avoiding people, not looking at them, not going out etc. that's no kinda of life with or without acne. Do your tennis, don't wear makeup if your worried about people knowing. and trust me, once it graps you into it's downward spiral it's VERY hard to break the cycle.
  7. Take the mino pills, 4 weeks about until it kicked in for me, use 2.5% BP and floow the regimen EXACTLY, this had me clear in no time at all, all good and well me saying that I'm aware everyone is different, however I strongly suggest trying the regimen.
  8. Didn't say that if you read it again, if he keeps doing what hes doing then it should stay static, it wont hurt taking it but if he stops then it COULD be a factor which might make it worse. So basically... shurrup
  9. IMO keep taking it, if you alter something now then it might come back, I'd play it safe, no harm in taking B5 for prolonged periods so long as you don't exceed 10 grams a day.
  10. Nope, altho not for prolonged periods, I have to look away at something or it feels strange, nothing to do with acne tho, just my eyes crave new stimulation... or something :-s
  11. Nivean shaving foam for sensetive skin for me.
  12. Nivea sensetive skin shaving foam, wilkinson sword fx performer, and every other day usually.
  13. Bought some last night off the web, soon as it arrives I'll give it a try, see if it's as good as it's cracked up to be.
  14. Panoxyl works for me, I use the alcohol based gel, or the water based gel, which ever I can be arsed to order at the time, I've never noticed any harshness, but yar alot of people complain about it, so it's a try and see scenario... if I can get Dan's bp over here then I'll try it, if it works I'll use it there after but until then that's what I use.
  15. 4 weeks to notice anything drastic, was on 100mg once a day.
  16. http://www.wholehealthmd.com/refshelf/subs...525,779,00.html Been taking this stuff cause my mom has some in the cupboard :-s decided today to look up on it see what it does, apparently it can help acne (yey) scroll down to the health benefits section, also read else where it can help by acting as an anti inflammitory. Thought I'd share, my skin has been surprisingly clear taking multi vits/minerals along with this oil, wasn't aware that the oil might be helping just thought it'd be good f
  17. neon yellow excess vitamin C comes out in your urine, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the problem.
  18. Taking a multivitamin and multimineral will help the look of your skin overall not to mention your body as a whole, when your body has all the resources it needs to function correctly of course you will see and feel changes, I've been taking multivitamin and multiminerals for months, noticed after about 4-5 weeks I had more energy than usualy, my skin looked healthier overall and my marks we're fading quicker, however I'm not sure how it effects active acne.
  19. 100mg a day I was put on, 6 months I stopped out of my own choice not to have all these drugs in my body, continued using bp and stayed clear for a month so far.
  20. Certain food has something to do with mine, and I can guarentee you I know my body more than you do
  21. You'll want to take a mirror out in natural light to find out what your skin is actually doing, synthetic lights will like you've experienced, change your complexion to the eye. The mirror in my kitchen shows up marks more than the living room mirror, simply because the kitchen has big windows and alot of natural light gets in, wheras in the living room I'm relying more on the light bulbs as a source. My skin looks almost green in the work toilets lol, flourecent lighting at it's best
  22. Time of year perhaps, I always get it bad in winter month(s), also with all that rich christmas food and massive alcohol intake, breaks me out a bit.
