  1. I have had acne since I was twelve years old and am now 22. I've always gotten my scars and red marks to fade but now its gotten out of control. It started in September on my honeymoon (thank god for clear skin on my wedding day!) I knew that I would break out in Cancun because of the humidity (I come from a very dry state) but the zits that came on my face didn't go away. I thought that with time my face would get better but I only started to break out worse and worse. My acne turned into
  2. If anyone is interested I have had a few changes in my regimen I now am taking Bactrim to go along with my Finacea. Today will be the first day of taking Bactrim. I was very nervous to start this drug because of the severe side effects that I have read but my doctor assured me that she thought it was a safe drug and hasn't had anyone get the severe side effects before. I'm allergic to minocycline, tetracycline and doxycycline which is why I am nervous. I am going to be brave and try it tod
  3. Hey Splashberri Its so interesting how similar we are in breaking out/hormone issues. If it is any consolation I know what you are going through. My face has been breaking out so bad its hard to even go out... makeup covers but you can still see the bumps and pitted scars I hate washing my face every night... seeing all those red marks is so freaking depressing. I have tried Ziana and Differin in the past. The Ziana left my skin oily and I didn't like it. I don't remember the Dif

    Reduces red marks from scars/post acne marks. Has a matte finish. See slight results after every use. Is clearing up my skin after a few weeks of use. Burns/itches... stick with it though and moisturize! Your skin will get used to it! Makes your skin a little rough if you put it on before makeup (liquid). These cons are nothing compared to most of the stuff I have tried. I really love Finacea. I love this stuff! After trying many, many t
  5. Hey Splashberri! Thanks so much for your response! I really appreciate it! I know! Its so crazy we are both experiencing breakouts in very weird places. I have never broke out all over my neck/head/chest before! I also was excited to try this instead of birth control and antibiotics. I took Minocycline and had a severe allergic reaction to it and my brain swelled. So I was very happy to try something different! I also noticed while on Spiro that I was more agitated. I am usually
  6. I've been dealing with acne since I was twelve. I recently just after my wedding started to break out pretty bad... (thank god for clear skin on my wedding day!!!) I started to break out on my honeymoon in Cancun. I was preparing myself to break out because I was in a humid climate and I come from a very dry climate. Usually I get red bumps and cysts but on my honeymoon they were white heads Ever since my honeymoon I have had deep dark red spots that remained after my zits (and ongoing
  7. ohhh I know! I cannot stand the itching and burning! Its terrible!!! It lasts for a couple hours sometimes after the application. Did you notice that it cleared your red marks on your skin? That is what I am trying to get rid of. I have dark pitted scars..... I just joined this site and its so nice to know that I am not the only one going through a hard time... anytime I feel like crying I come on this site. It has really helped me the past week.
  8. It depends on your skin. I noticed results within the first week but it seems like its taking forever (its only been three weeks.) I will tell you that Finacea makes your skin burn... I absolutely hate that part about it but it is the only thing that works for my redness. I really like my results and am going to stick with it. I have used BP before and didn't really see any results with it. If your skin is burning maybe try applying moisturizer before or after the application? I have
  9. When did you start Finacea? I started three weeks ago and am still breaking out. I would give it a couple months before quitting though. Have you talked to your dermo about these oil face washes ect? I would never ever put oil on my face because I have oily skin... washing your face is meant to get the dirt and oil out... why put it in? Just curious how long you started Finacea because I am having a similar experience with the white heads Thanks!
  10. Hey! I too have red marks all over my face. You should talk to your doctor about Finacea. It is THE BEST product I have found (after trying many) that helps with redness. It is prescribed for severe rosacea. I tried it a couple years back and am on it now. I had a terrible breakout after my honeymoon that left me with deep scars that are very red. I saw a difference within the first week. Right now my doctor has me doing chemical peels every month and Finacea and a pill to help wi
  11. Hi my name is Kelsey. I decided to join the site because I have been dealing with acne since I was twelve (I am 22). I have a hormone imbalance so I get mild to severe breakouts. I have tried doxycycline, duac, differin, many other creams, accutane (made me very anxious) and minocycline which I had a severe allergic reaction to and my brain swelled. Right after my honeymoon in august my face started to break out terribly on my cheeks. I now have dark red pitted scars on my cheeks (can't
