  1. Interesting I was also on antibiotics for a while, but my acne as been settled down even before I had surgery when I was only taking anti-inflamatory and pain drugs (jasavulide, exxiv, ben-u-ron, etc). If they had anything to do with it, hope they cured my acne, otherwise lol
  2. Hello everyone! I've been a very unregular poster here, since last year, but I felt compelled to come back here and post my little success story lol. I'm 26 and it could be that I'm finally growing out of it. Another factor that may have helped is that I've been dealing with some serious knee problems the last two years, had surgery recently and I pretty much stopped caring about my acne and my looks. Compared to what I'm dealing with right now what's the point right. So I pretty much let my
  3. So I guess I'm in the clear if I stay on Retin-A... BTW I’m 25 and a dude, so I really don’t worry about wrinkles, but it’s a nice bonus I guess… Thank you both for replying.
  4. Is prolonged use of retin-A ok? I'm about to finish a 30g Retin-A cream... It hasn't cured my forehead acne, but it has tamed it. I only apply once a day, sometimes twice when bumps flare up. Only side affects are a bit of dryness which I offset by a hydrating aloe vera lotion. Also, sometimes, usually in the morning, if I scratch my forehead the area scratched becomes red temporally (5-10 minutes maybe).
  5. I was on Isotrexin for a while, which kept acne (forehead area only) at bay for me. Finished it and I’ve been on retin-A for the last few weeks but results haven’t been as good as Isotrexin. Do I give it more time or should I consider something else?
  6. Questionnaire could have been a bit more though out. 1. What kind of acne do you have? Mild 2. How long have you suffered? Since the age of ~13 3. Does it affect you social life? Not really, since I can’t see my face 24/7 I mostly forget about it 4. Does it affect your diet No 5. What over the counter products are good? Don’t know 6. What over the counter products are bad? Don’t know 7. Have you been on atibotics if so what ones? Yes, don’t recall the name no
  7. I'm on Retin-A for about week now, and I have a few questions. Is applying more than once a day, really not advised? I wash my face in the morning and I don't like to wash my face more than once a day. If I wash a second time (at night), my face starts to get sore from the washing. Thing is I've read it's advised to apply Retin-A at night, but I can't bear to wash my face a second time. Would it be ok to apply Retin-A without washing? What do you people think I should do here?
  8. Nothing more life like than your own life, lol Recently the most life like movie I’ve seen was Brokeback Mountain, and no I’m not gay.
  9. I think the best is treating your acne so you get to the point you don’t have to pick at your face or not as much Telling your self not to pick is good if you have the will power, but I mean for people like me even though I know I shouldn’t do it the urge is just too strong and I forget to remind myself not to pick. It beats me every time. I don’t want to be negative though and I guess if you can tell yourself not to pick more power to you.
  10. Guilty here. I'd stop picking if my acne went away lol, if me and acne could just have a sit down and talk and reach an understanding I'd be willing to make that compromise Yeah picking bad leaves scars, make face ugly...
  11. Or much of anything else for that matter. After I let it sit, if I don't take the residue off first, whatever moisturizer/lotion I use will just smear the residue all over my forehead. I tried scrubbing it off with tissue or a towel, but found that just a light rinse with a small amount of water, and some blotting afterwards was much more effective in getting the residue off. I can't say if this is ideal or not. I'm just too lazy to be doing something more elaborate to take the residue off.
  12. I have mild-ish acne on my forehead and I'm on Isotrexin (gel) right now. I'm not using it for scarring or marks. (What's is this topic doing in this section anyhow?) Supposedly it has two active ingredients: 2% erythromycin + 0.05% isotretinoin. All I can say is that it's working for me. I haven't had big bumps in the last a month or so. I get a few very small ones here and there, but you would only notice if you're inspecting my face up close. Overhall, it's been a while since I had my forehe
  13. Never heard of that, but I'm no expert and I use a different brand of BP (Peroxiben)... can't really help you. Maybe searching the forum... A proper moisturizer should help and/or starting small and ramping up on that BP is what the Regimen suggests...
  14. Thinking it through, I doubt my penox would appreciate such austere regimens as those. I think I have my priorities straight and no one in their right mind should put a pristine blemish free face before some self administered pleasurings every now and then.
  15. So you’re basically saying no jerking off is the cure for a man’s acne... doesn’t sound very credible to me, but what do I know.
