  1. I understand, and I am in agreement. But something that made me angry was that when I told the doctor that I didn't wanted to use Epiduo, because it could cause burning, he said that there was no way that could happen. But, the reality is that Epiduo has burned my face twice and the official site says that it can be one of the possible side effects. The second time, I couldn't use it after three days. Just on the spots. So, now I am only applying it every two days. For me, it works better this w
  2. No problem, glad I can help. As you noted, acne is complex and there can be many factors causing it. In addition to hormonal issues, acne could be caused by food allergies, environmental triggers, sensitivities (to products and certain foods), or digestive issues (like candida and leaky gut). It's good to do both IgE and IgG tests because one measures immediate allergic reactions and the other measures delayed reactions. For most people, it's the delayed reactions that matter most, that's why co
  3. I think you can find plenty of advice in the holistic forum. Ask the allergist to also test for food intolerances (both IgE and igG testing) because you could just have food sensitivities that regular allergy tests will not be able to detect. Elimination diets can be time-consuming but they can help you figure out your triggers if the allergy tests don't show anything specific. In my case, I got tested for allergies through blood testing and skin testing, and the allergist didn't find anything s
  4. I think you're on the right track to think this is either an allergy, or a dysfunction in your bowels. (And, an allergy could be a symptom of your guts not working properly.) Here are some steps I took in the past year, which I have found to improve how I look and feel: Fixed my sleep. I had Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which basically kept me sleep deprived for many years. But anything that keeps you from regularly sleeping a full night will cause problems with your system. So if you're a person w
  5. I would like to share some very important information about what is happening to me. First of all, I am a 19 years old female, and I have a type of acne that I consider a very strange, which began in the month of May. Why do I find it odd? For the next reasons: When I wash my face it itches terribly, the same when I use makeup and at sleeping time, but this is not the weirdest, the strangest thing I've seen is that this seems to be spreading like an allergy (forehead, chin, cheeks, cheekbones),
  6. Hello guys. I would like to share some very important information about what is happening to me. First of all, I am a 19 years old female, and I have a type of acne that I consider a very strange, which began in the month of May. Why do I find it odd? For the next reasons: When I wash my face it itches terribly, the same when I use makeup and at sleeping time, but this is not the weirdest, the strangest thing I've seen is that this seems to be spreading like an allergy (forehead, chin, cheeks, c
  7. Some days ago, I bought 'Neotrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Cream Wash', which is still unused. I read some reviews about this product on the internet, and like 75% claim that the product helped and that they wouldn't trade it for anything, while the other 25% said that the Cream-Wash just made the acne worse. This is the reason I haven't tried it yet, and still considering. Maybe the 2% Salicylic Acid is what causes the breakouts? Is it temporary for this to happen? If you've us
  8. I recently bought 'Freeman Facial Clay Mask Mint and Lemon' at Walmart. After the first use, I noticed that pimples shrunk, pores shrunk, and my complexion felt very soft and very less greasy. After two days of applying it, I notice some new pimples coming out, which is fine, since it was the first use, the mask started pulling everything from inside out. Now, for those who have used this mask or any clay mask, how long did you have to wait for your face to clear? I am putting my hopes on th
  9. Hello, Rosalie! Thank you for replying to my post. You made me have a more clear perception about these medications, and I believe that you have accurate knowledge. ​Two days ago, I bought a clay mask, since it has helped a lot of people. I bought 'Freeman Facial Clay Mask Mint & Lemon' at Walmart, which, on the first use, I saw a lot of difference on my face, like shrunken pores, shrunken pimples, and a less oily complexion. I also bought 'Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Cre
  10. In two weeks, I will go to my first visit to a dermatologist, since I've been breaking out ugly (first on chin, then on cheeks, then on forehead and rest of face with large pores. This, starting on May and dragging itself through the days, till now), which never happened before in this way. I had clear skin before this... I'm 19 years old, a female, and over-the-counter products like benzoyl peroxide or honey masks aren't working anymore. I have been having increased stress because of this over
