  1. This seborrheic dermatitis,everything fails... I finally decided to use the xolegel ,ketoconazole 2% gel , hard to apply but I think it's worth it! The gel is expensive, but if you have insurance go to the official website and download a coupon or get one from the doctor, it's about $20. Wash with cetaphil antibacterial soap and then wait for the skin to dry, then apply the gel, I do it twice a day . I take oregano oil 3/5 drops under the tongue to bypass the liver(I read about that online)
  2. Hello guys ...long time ,no hear .... An update .... It has been really hard to treat hormonal acne due to hypothyroidism ,plus this eczema ,seborrheic dermatitis . I got fed up with antibiotics. Ditched everything , ended up using cetaphil antibacterial soap and listerine the blue one cool mint as a toner ,temoved with water, didn't left on skin ,funny , well ...it removed cysts from my face,I didn't know they had a home on it. My moisturizer ,...oils Coconut oil and castor oil ( organic
  3. Could it be some infection from shaving ? Beginning of folliculitis ? Have it checked by a doctor or dermatologist.
  4. I know that Ziana gel, it's expensive, but if you have insurance , there is a coupon on their website , it says : you pay only 20, we ended up paying 35 for my daughter because we have a higher deductible,the coupon is good for 1 prescription and 2 refills ,so just get a new prescription after that and another coupon. As you know Ziana already has the clindamycin gel + the retin a,so that is a good alternative when discontinuing the minocycline. Just treat the skin as needed ,some days it migh
  5. Have you tried clean and clear dual action moisturizer,oil free ?
  6. Clean and clear dual action moisturizer oil free . I can even mix this moisturizer with the benzoyl peroxide treatment.
  7. @Hopedieslast...Yes , stress plays a huge part ,but I also think stress is the cause of all illnesses. I had an appointment with my dermatologist yesterday and he asked about my stress levels,pfff ...through the roof, always. I need to start watching more comedies, and don't take things too seriously. Flekkn...I think you make a lot of sense too , I seem to do well regarding hydrogen or benzoyl peroxide too. Take care everyone and keep postings your experiences with medications or over the c
  8. My update ... I'm still using the doxycycline 50 or 100 once at night, I use the 50 if my face is not itchy, otherwise the 100 for itchy face. Washing my face with Dr Bronner's liquid lavender soap. Once or double wash morning and night , when I use make-up, it's double wash. Then ,8/10 minutes after I apply Dan's benzoyl peroxide treatment mixed with clean and clear dual action oil free moisturizer (sometimes I can get some residue that looks like white plastic, when I massage this mix o
  9. SebdermRelief...I tried the acv ,braggs , and I used it diluted and undiluted , it was just too much for my skin to handle. Thank you for the advice. I have read all the posts on this thread, I have used most of the recommended stuff , I have managed to control the redness and flakiness, but still get some cystic acne, I think my problem could be my hypothyroidism, so hormones related, benzoyl peroxide helps, along with dr Bronner's liquid lavender , I tried the peppermint and it was a no, no
  10. This is for the person who mentioned singulair ...my husband takes singulair , the brand name and even when he doesn't suffer with acne, I believe this is the reason why he doesn't get any breakouts, I went to the patents online information and read what singulair does,pretty interesting ,and now reading this from someone who thinks that singulair is helping with their acne , I'm glad. Take care!
  11. Dermablend is one that is supposed to help with that, I guess . Personally I Haven't tried it .I have seen videos ,I think that you probably could find some videos about covering scars ,online. I know all about scars and how down can make us feel sometimes. Talking from experience ,there will always be something about ourselves that we don't like. And you would be surprised about how the people who we really think are flawless are not. Take care.
  12. Hopedieslast...yes ,....my skin also improves with eczema treatments, Most of my redness is gone , but I'm still dealing with some flaking, I'm going to try the cetaphil products that you are trying. And yes , I have heard about the Apple cider vinegar , I tried it but it was a little bit harsh for me , I haven't had any flaking or breakouts on my scalp, I don't know if it's the loreal sulfate free shampoo , my scalp problem is mostly right next to my forehead and since I have been using the
  13. You can start reading the posts on the forums,maybe you can find some that can relate to your type of skin. We can give you suggestions only , but you don't necessarily have to use what we recommend. Why the prescription from the dermatologist didn't work , maybe you can try seeing another dermatologist. I know it's frustrating dealing with acne,but sometimes it's not only the skin treatments that can affect the way we treat our skin, but also our hormones play a big role. What have you use
  14. The clinic didn't give you instructions about make-up and also probably removal of it ?. I think your skin is healing really nice. Thanks for the information. Take care.
  15. Don't feel bad Rick32 , I do understand ,I have been in situations too where I have missed so many things and ocassions in my life , and that is a big part of my life that I regret , so be with your dad ,with your soul and mind . My prayers are with you too. Take care.
  16. There is a video on YouTube where this girl talks about her experience of when she decided to go out in the sun and get a surburn . I think it was right at the end of her Accutane treatment, bad idea , she got blisters all over, not only her face, you should watch it. Just imagine what a tanning bed would do. Why risk it? I don't even know how I ended up watching that video, it was one of those days when I was watching some other unrelated stuff and you all know the rest of the story. Tak
  17. Next time leave whatever they put on after your laser treatment ,when you removed the Vaseline at the clinic , that was bad because your skin was sensitive and like you said it feels like a sunburn, and like sunburn skin,laser skin is exposed to breaks , so to avoid any unnecessary break on it, its better to follow the instructions to avoid infections. I know that you are following instructions but the removing of the Vaseline wasn't a good idea. Take care.
  18. hi Hopedieslast...thank you . I wanted to add something , since I have been doing a lot of reading, I went on free patents online site and did some research about what my husband takes for his asthma , he takes singulair brand name. There ,(it's a long reading) they talk about leukotrienes (sp?) ,and also about glutamine or something related to glutamine . It's all related to the gut and inflammation ,and I think the reason why we all react different to diet has to be related to enzymes,or la
  19. Hopedieslast....Yeah! I'm glad that you finally have found something that is working for you, as I have realized that what might work for others might not work for me or the other way. Anyways, I'm happy for you, thanks for sharing, I will look into it. What kind of cloths are you using, and I guess it's ok to ask what brand. I know that make-up removers kind of exfoliate too. Take care.
  20. I think if it has been there for that long , it could be cystic. My advice too , is for you to have it look at by a dermatologist, but if you have tried to squeeze it before it might have formed scar tissue . Sometimes when you use an AHA product and you squeeze a pimple the pimple forms some kind of lichen or scar tissue. If you can't see a dermatologist,then try some calamine lotion, I use the generic target brand , don't forget to shake the bottle, gently rub a little and after that apply
  21. Hi there, glad you are back. I really can relate to the work from home part, not because I work from home but because I don't work,I stay home and that's true what you say about the obsessive part. I have tried calamine lotion, not the brand name but the target brand, to dry pimples or just on irritated pimples, but I also find it hard to remove, and the only thing that removes it , is the dr Bronner's liquid lavender soap, I had a cystic pimple that didn't want to heal and after using the cal
  22. Why Accutane is not as powerful anymore? I keep reading more posts about having breakouts as soon as stopping it. I took only a 4 month course once and it kept me clear for about 2 -3 years, but sure using topical benzoyl peroxide treatment as soon as my face could could handle some irritation. And I agree with the poster who says that going off Accutane doesn't mean that using anything on the face is ok . I know people need to moisturize with heavy moisturizer while on Accutane, but I thin
  23. I know this is an old thread, but I went to see the scar gallery and I was really shocked to see such great results from mr.matt . I don't know if he did a blog or anything , but his results were so magnificent. I'm not planning to have any procedure, my skin can't handle anything these days and even if I could ,I don't have the money or the courage , I think it's the courage first, then the money. But for those who are looking for some improvement ,mr.matt (his doctor) did a great job. I t
  24. Oh my gosh, I don't think I explained my point well. I'm really sorry. I know that you are trying internal supplements too ,but what i meant is that sometimes we mix so many that we don't know if any or which one is working . Maybe some blood work would help to know if there is an imbalance in your body. Ask your dermatologist about demodex mite ,too. These are just suggestions.
