  1. Hey All, Tried posting this in the scar forum, but to no avail. I recently had my scab peel off from a pimple and it left a slight brownish spot near the tip pf my nose. Now normally I would wait for it to fade, but I will be going away in a week and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas/remedies to help it fade much faster if only a little. If not, it looks like my only alternative is to go to a tanning salon for a tan and try to "mask" it for a couple of days. I know some of you may not re

  3. well, i knew something wasnt right and i went ahead and popped it...it seems that there was a blood bubble under a thin piece of skin that had grown over it...it actually looks much better now..has any ever got on of these?
  4. thats the thing, i dont want to put any acne medication on it if its in the healing process..wont that mess with the new skin development?
  5. I developed a pimple on the tip of my nose that never came to a head and seemed to have healed without any popping. But soon after, I noticed that there was still a bump so i squeezed it and pus and blood came out. I then cleaned it with peroxide and now thought it was compelety gone and the healing process began. New skin started to cover the "spot", however there was still a slight bump that kind of hurts when i touch it. How do I know if theres is still an infection or if it is still in
  6. My derm put me on minocycline 200mgs per day last summer because I had breakouts on my back (mild). I got a few pimples a month on my face, but nothing bad. I filled my prescription early in Decemeber because of more breakouts on both my face and back, but after taking it for about 2-3 weeks I became clear. Here is the thing... the prescription calls for 100mgs twice a day, but I am taking just 100 per day and it has been working like a charm. Is this ok?....If I remember correctly my derm s
  7. I have been on minocycline (100mgs) for 30 days and my skin is clear. They definetly worked although my skin wasnt that bad. I was thinking of stopping, because I dont want to take them for a long time, Will i start breaking out immediately or will take awhile? Will it be worse? Whats the story about stopping the medication?
  8. I am using Clindamycin Phosphate Pledgets 1%-can I use bp on top of it?
  9. Well in any event, I think all you guys have been great with suggestions and stuff. I guess I should just take the pills and take them as directed because I was taking (1)100mg when I should of been taking 2 twice a day. This sound good? Thanks again.
  10. I got to tell you guys that everyone has been really great with suggestions. I feel like I can trust you all over my new derm. I am just terrified by an initial breakout that may be worse than what I currently have. I guess maybe I should continue to take the minocylcine and not just 1 a day but the 2 like I was directed. Sound good?
  11. Now I am really confused, I think I am going to get off them since my acne is not that bad, and I am going away next week....cant afford to breakout. He also gave me a topical antibiotic. Does this make you break out initally to? I may just use that.
  12. Thanks sharp, but I really mild acne...maybe my derm overprescribed? should I just continue? take it every other day? dont want intial breakout because I am going on vacation next week...thanks.
  13. What are BHA's and how can I get some?
  14. I was just prescribed Minocycline...200mg per day, but I think I am going to take half that. Is it true that there are initial breakouts with antibiotics? I would think there wouldnt be. Also, I have very mild acne, but more on back and shoulders( about 3 new zits every month or so maybe more at times), and I figured I would go to a derm to get clear for the summer. He saw me for about 4 minutes and prescribed the medication and some topical antibiotic swipes(Clindamycin). I am thinking ma
