  1. I think part of the problem are those folks who create posts that say stuff like Dan you rock, your regimen rocks, let me have your baby ...but... I, uh, only do the regimen at night or Im using such and such a product or I also use this etc. etc. You've created a very democratic message board here, where people can discuss all sorts of different methods and techniques to alleviate their acne. We like you because your not proactive or murad, you realize that their isn't a "one size-fits-all"
  2. Yeah, Maybe I got a little sensitive, I thought I was following it exactly, and maybe I should post this in the regular section, I dont know, I guess its just easy to overlook some things. In all honesty though I still dont understand what I was doing wrong...I mean Ive corrected the not waiting 15 minutes after washing deal Is the fact that I was waiting a few minutes less really mean Im not actually doing the regimen? Maybe it does. Anyhow Day 52: Well today my cysts were huge, I skipped so
  3. If it didn't take me 3 months to get in to see them I'd definately go for that!
  4. wow, isnt' that the old "botchla" remedy, any oldtimers remember that? http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php...topic=11566&hl= It was huge for a long time, some people got clear some didn't, click on the members button, top of the screen and run a search for his name then his topics and you'll find alot about these two products. Personally my skin just went nuts after a week on his regimen, so I quit.
  5. GEEEZ 2 years! WTF!! that sucks GEEEZ 15 minutes! WTF! thats cool,
  6. I too am 26 and have noticed this effect, I had regular acne all over, but after accutane at 17 it came back as cysts and went like this... Clear till 18 18-20 cysts on neck and inside ears (that sucked) 20-21 pretty clear 21-23 chin area right below sides of lower lip 24-25 both sides of nose on cheek. urggh! Just sharing my similar experience...I hope the next area I get acne isn't noticable, maybe the bottom of a rock in southeast asia, in a forrest somewhere where I never know about it.
  7. Hey your not alone, one of my derm's said I had seb derm, it sucks, I am trying the regimen right now to get rid of my cysts which the derm said is often times seen with seb derm, It has seemed to help the scaling and the redness, because now everything is scaly and red! No just kidding, that was only the first few weeks and moisturizer usually helped the scaling. My doc gave me Nizoral shampoo and told me to use on my face and hair. After a week I was an oily mess, weird, I quit using it. Mayb
  8. Day 51: Hmm weird, Dan's post that is, maybe he's getting my post's confused with someone elses or something, maybe he just doesn't like my ugly avatar, which currently a skull face or something stupid I found on the web. ? Either way, uhh I'v watched the videos a total of 8 times now since starting 51 days ago. I've done everything as instructed, use the recommended products, ramped up slowly with the bp, the only thing I was somehow over-looking was the waiting 15 minutes after washing, I

    Wow, my skin looks much better in photos! The cyst on the lower part of my chin is going to love his new friend thats below the skin next door! Sorry its so blurry!
  11. Well I guess the service is just as bad everywhere, derms suck, Im curious about accupuncture though, called and accupuncturist today, going in for a free consultation tomorrow, now thats good service.
  12. Well, I guess Im going to try and start udating daily, I think other peoples posts labeled by day are easier to read. So here goes Day 50 Today I have 4 cysts. One on my neck, hardly ever get 'em there one right in the crease where my nose meets my face(first of the bunch in this breakout) and its almost dead. One on my cheek, red and angry, never get 'em there, and one on my chin also red and angry and also not a normal place I get them.
  13. Okay so Im now on week 7, week 6 was a bitch! I have 4 cysts, this blows! I did start waiting 15 after washing before applying bp and it made my face rediculously dry at first but now its starting to mellow. I also swithced to Dan's gel instead of on the spot so either one of these changes may have caused this breakout, who knows, oh well, I'll keep going I guess, this sucks!
  14. Week six stuff: You can skip this first post and go to the second, the first post is my update at week six and a comment from Dan. Well you'll see below that I have been having pretty good success with Dan's regimen but now in the beginning of week 6 I am developing a cyst near my nose. I was pretty excited but now Im feeling a bit discouraged. Really though, its not too bad and right now its not too noticable but it may get larger, who knows. Man I hate acne. Anyway right now here's my r
  15. This could have something to do with moisturizer and bp "balling up" too, or maybe thats what your getting at, but I mean maybe people rub their moisturizer in to long also.

  17. If I were to call just about every dermatologist in town Im looking at about a 2 month wait to get in there, is it this bad everywhere, I mean if I have a huge cyst I cant even consider a cortisone shot because that one is pretty much gone in 2 months, and with the luck I've had every time I do get an appointment my face is mostly redmarks, next day, back to cyst city! Just curious what everyone elses experiences are.
  18. Awesome! Good to hear you stuck it out and your looking good!
  19. I recently started adding in (for multiple reasons) some anti-stress b vitamin formula crap, I have a cyst forming for some reason and I really dont care as much as I used to, I feel kind of chill, fully recomend anything that relieves stress. Might not cure your acne but if you dont care f-it.
  20. Aside from all of the logistics, i.e. causes cancer, thickens skin etc, can you tan while using bp? I am not looking to help my acne by tanning but really would like a lil bit of color, Im of English descent and am fairly fair skinned but I do tan nicely. If bp makes you overly sensitive to sunlight would this be a stupid idea? Anyone ever tan while on the regimen?
  21. Thanks Dan, for replying, No I usually just apply bp right after drying. Would that make a difference? I guess I'll start waiting just cause you mentioned it but Im probably just going through a week six breakout, I hope, besides that the regimen has rocked. In my utter dismay I bought some acninil herb stuff from ebay, when it arrives I'll add that it, hope it helps but it probably shouldn't affect my regimen results, just a pill, and you cant argue with that unless you believe that things you

  23. It seems logical that there may be a connection, whether its hormones or a loss of vitamins and minerals, but to be honest, there probably isn't. Take supplements and jerk off on a regular schedule, like say once a day, once every other day, whatever, sounds stupid but really if you do that (I have a schedule) then you wont be losing any vitamins and your 'raging' hormones will adjust to your 'regular' schedule. I know sounds whacko to jerk off on a regular schedule but if you avoid it all toget
