  1. Grass fed beef, wild caught fish, organic chicken/turkey Alright.. This organic thing interests me. I'll give it a shot.
  2. what good meat do you mean by this?
  3. have u tried a crazy strict diet? I'm 31 and had acne for 14+ years too and finally found a way to avoid the cystic breakouts. For the past 2 months I've stuck to 1. Breakfast - bowl of cereal 2. Lunch - Salad (Spinach leaves, steamed breast chicken, corn, kidney beans, carrot, hard boiled egg and baslamic vinegar dressing) 3. Pasta I cook at home or sushi and sashimi I don't deviate the slightest and have found excuses to not go to dinner with any friends to avoid anything new. My skin
  4. hey tofugirl I'm going through EXACTLY the same situation as you. After 14+ years of acne, I still don't know what my trigger of acne is but I've found a diet that avoids it. I've not had a breakout for a solid 2 months since sticking to a really plain diet that I reckon even prison food would be more exciting. Can I ask are you really skinny and have a quick metabolism? My diet doesn't include as much meat as I used to eat (only few meat pieces from the salad I eat during lunch time) so I'm b
  5. sounds normal. plenty of videos on youtube of derms doing that. Red marks WILL fade. the question is when. It could take anywhere between 3 months to a full year.
  6. The better days will come. You just need to hang in there. My mind worked very much like urs from the age of 20 - 30 where every thought was consumed with acne thoughts. My acne is still pretty bad but I've learnt how to deal with those thoughts better and don't let it affect me as much. btw my sister had that the same type of acne as you, but she got rid of it with birthday control pills. she's been acne free for 12 years and still takes it to this day. Have u tried that?
  7. could be epiduo cream? I would try the food elimination diet approach first before going on accutane. Accutane is always the last resort after you've tried everything as it can come with some severe side effects. Go research the hell out of the holistic forum and if u don't find a cure there, try accutane.
  8. One word - Mindfulness. I've used this to master self discipline. Just google or buy a book for it
  9. Mate I suspect the same as you. For me if I eat one of my trigger foods then I would go on a severe breakout that would last a ridiculous 6 - 8 months before the vicious breakout ends. I've got no science to back this but I reckon when I eat the wrong food there is a very slow burn process which explains why I breakout for such long durations. Like you, I won't present itself until maybe 5-7 days later. Currently I've stuck to a strict diet of just chick salads, pasta and cereal (I've got no i
  10. I'm eating the most boring diet ever and I'm three weeks into it. Morning - Bowl of cereal Lunch - salad with spinach leaves, carrot, kidney beans, corn, sweet potato and steamed chicken breast Dinner - Pasta Acne has improved 10 fold. From severe to lower end moderate. The moment I step out of this diet I know I'm to break out like crazy. I dunno how I'm gonna do this forever -.-
  11. Hey fruzsi - u have come to the right place. There were times I was reading ur post I thought I was reading about my own experience. So many ppl have gone through exactly or similar situations as u described including myself. Things do get better as you start to learn more about your body and acne and how to control it. You be happy to know that those red marks WILL fade away. what you may not be happy about is it could take anywhere between a month to even a year. There are ways of speeding i
  12. I definitely would not recommend having a break between courses. Maybe call them and say that it's just for an in and out prescription and maybe they can fit u in their busy schedule? If you are certain u are going to need to wait then as a last case u should start spacing out what you have left and take it once every 2 days instead. This advice was given to me by my derm and he said it's fine.
  13. did u end up getting the implant instead? Maybe that triggered something... either way, keep it up! accutane is a rollercoaster of a ride. Here's to u getting off feeling great
  14. There is a whole bunch of things you can certainly try. From your derm visit I assume they have lead you down the path of BP and SA cream treatments. Have you tired antibiotics such as minocycline or bactrim? More importantly I would definitely visit this sites Diet and Holistic section. Ruling out food triggers have worked for many people. Then there is the last case scenario of accutane
