  1. So how much more effective is chlorhexidine than chloroxylenol? I just got a gallon jug of the AloeGuard stuff and I really like it so far. Makes my skin really smooth. But now there's this product that's only $10... maybe I can use both?
  2. Thanks to the both of you. Yeah I'm not sure whether to go for the AloeGuard or the Provon. Maybe both? Haha.
  3. Yeah I know but that wasn't really my question. I wan't to know what the difference between Triclosan and Chloroxylenol is. Maybe I'll just get all of them and compare. Although it would be nice to have some feedback.
  4. All this talk of antibacterial soaps is getting me very curious and interested. I've been taking Minocycline and using tazorac and benzaclin which has significantly helped my active acne but on my back and chest I still have red marks and scars. Now this is where I turn to find out more about soaps. I've been using the Purpose bar soap for about 2 years and I really liked it but my skin still isn't as great as it could be. So right now I've narrowed it down to: Dial Antibacterial Body Wash Clea
  5. I finally went to the dermatologist after finding a really good one and she gave me this regimen: AM -Wash with Purpose (I already had been) -Apply clindamycin (topical) -Take Dynacin (75mg) PM -Wash with Purpose -Wait 1/2 hour (eh, I don't really considering this is probably until my skin dries off after a shower) -Apply "pea-sized" amount of Retin-A Micro 0.1% (gradually increase until frequent usage) It has only been two weeks but it seems promising. any comments?
  6. well, i have decided to go to my doctor and ask him to prescribe me benzaclin. i am pretty confident in it. 5% bp plus whatever else is in it to kill bacteria. I will still use the purpose bar and moisturize (occassionally). i found the box from my old prescription (5/02) and it said 'apply to face every morning'. So if i have benzaclin on my chest and back... and something mild on my face... i am in business :)/
  7. "hey you have a lot of pimples on your back" WHAT?! how didn't i know, what is wrong with me?... <sarcasm> tear </sarcasm>
  8. Attempted Week 5(? -its been about 2-3 months but i guess i would say this is how long i've been keeping at it lately) i am officially back from vacationing... while away, i skimped on morning and some evening parts of the regimen... but now i have nothing to interfere with the regimen for a long time which is very good. the other day, i saw zapzyt at a pharmacy somewhere so i bought it. wow... much better than oxy (not content-wise because they're both 10% bp but the gel absorbs so e
  9. back from vacation.... updates soon... lost my bp while on vacation this past week... used it twice the whole week... ah well i am back on track. everything's clearing up, slowly but surely. yes i am still using the 10% confidently and lets see what happens. on a completely unrelated note... my braces come off in 3 weeks... its about freaking time! its been about 3 years... going on another short vacation for 3 days... and then ill kepp everyone posted
  10. just got bp... woohoo so i'll have another full update at the end of the week.
  11. ahh, i havent had any time to get any bp... its 8:30 so i'll see if i can get any tonight. i'll pick up one or two. then i will actually be able to use it for an extended period of time! otherwise, my skin is looking better. real update soon, i promise
  12. also on my nose i have two raised white dots... not whiteheads and not pimples and they've been there for about a month or so. and the bp isnt doing much to get rid of them. do you know what these are?
  13. on the right side of my face near the jawline i have two bumps under the skin. they are semi-hard and round. are these cysts? and will the regimen eventually take care of this or is there some other method i should use? thanks in advance
  14. alright well, i haven't yet found out what honey to use, but for the past two days after i decided to really start using dan's regimen constantly every day. i dont have any of the 2.5% bp but i am using oxy 10 with very good results. but i don't reccomend this for everyone. as dan says, more of the 2.5% works better than 10%. not on my skin, but everyone is different so it is hard to be sure. nob-- haha thanks. well, i'm still iffy about the lemon and honey thing i was going to add in. rig
  15. has anyone had any results using honey? i read somewhere on here that a certain type of honey (i forgot the name) is very good for acne because it is an exfoliant and an anti-bacterial. im thinking of putting this in my regimen to help red marks? i don't know... please help!
  16. i'll post some more pics soon. i am getting really frustrated. it's hard to tell whether i'm seeing results or not. my face looks fine. but the red marks on my chest seem like they go away but they don't. i am going to follow the regimen precisely twice a day unlike i've been doing because i really, REALLY want to get rid of this. i am going to start the lemon method soon for red marks. for now, i am using oxy 10 because it seems to work for me. it doesnt dry my skin excessively. qu
  17. i've been using only the purpose bar for the past few weeks and i've been noticing my skin is clearing up really well. i need to go pick up some bp in the mean time but i run out of it really quickly. and it becomes expensive after a while so... is there anyone else who has experienced good results from the bar?
  18. i've been so busy lately... now i don't have any bp so i've been using just the purpose bar. i've been seeing really good results. red marks are turning pink and it just seems to be slowly disappearing. i'll keep everyone updated.
  19. ah, wrong forum. dan do you think you could move this to the regimen forum? thanks.
  20. Ahh too many different ideas to throw into the regimen... here's my brainstorm of what I think I should use. (Drink lemon water all day ???) Morning -Clean areas with Clearasil 3-in-1 acne defense cleanser -Rinse off -Apply astringent -Wait -Apply Benzaclin* *I am not on benzaclin yet, but I am going to ask my doctor if he can give me a prescription. All this is, is 5% bp + some anti-biotic to fight bacteria. I also don't know any of the side-effects and what not so if anyone wants
  21. whoa make that 3 14 year-olds... umm, that regimen looks really promising. i've been on dan's regimen for about 2 weeks and i'm not sure if i want to switch over (although i might add in some of the products you reccomended). thanks alot man! oh yes, so for the past two years (if you've been using it that long), how dramatic were the results?
  22. ok well it hasn't been a week but my skin seems to be clearing up a little bit more. I ran out of bp the other day so I need to get some more but the red marks on my chest and back are fading to light-red/pinkish color which is always a plus. i think i am going to start the lemon method. should i also use vinegar? i want to "speed up" the process so I think I'm going to use that as well. All I can say at this point is so far, so good
  23. i think i'm just too picky and impatient... i just want this to go away!!!
  24. Week 2 Well, the regimen seems to be working very well. My skin is smooth, and since it's really only been one week (considering that last week I didn't follow it through too well and I left my purpose bar in the shower so most of it wasn't left, hehe) I have still seen minor improvements in red marks but I should be expecting mroe drastic changes within the next week. I am thinking of having my doctor prescribe benzaclin for me, i had used it last summer but I realize now that I didn't put a
