  1. So my face has been relatively clear now ever since accutane. I've been using finacea topically, and spot treating with one of my various spot treatments whenever needed. Well pretty much overnight, I developed 11 zits on my face. Just out of nowhere. I'm nowhere near my period. I haven't eaten anything different. I've gone over every single reason why this is possibly happening, and I can't think of anything. I can't calm myself down and I can't stop crying because i'm so terrified that my acne

    Wow that sounds awful, I would not want to make myself ill on purpose.

    Regimen on Accutane

    Washing two times a day is fine on accutane, I did it. I reccomend emu oil as a moisturizer, this coming from someone who has tried every moisturizer there is and it's the only one that hasn't broken me out. It's fine to take fish oil supplements, actually reccomended since it's supposed to help with possible joint soreness caused by the accutane. You should stay away from taking vitamin A supplements of any kind while on accutane.
  4. I remember I tried taking MSM way back in the day, bought some pills on sale at GNC. They made me smell awful when I started to sweat.
  5. There are no flaws in God's creation. Who decides pooping is a flaw? I thought it was just a natural bodily function...not saying it's not gross sometimes

    RiceBunny's Method

    Yes, 3 years ago when I first joined this website there were tons of people using this method. The moderator Jess was the one who came up with the idea.There was a huge thread about it, we were calling it Jessfoliation. The people who were using this method though are gone now.

    hydrocortisone 1% cream

    Yeah I only did it cause i'm crazy. I mean, remember i'm the girl who burned a hole in her face on accident by mixing baking soda, lime juice, and kosher salt. Yeah probably shouldn't listen to me.

    hydrocortisone 1% cream

    I've done it before, but only use a very small amount, and try not to use it often. It thins the skin out terribly.

    I've met many people like the one you mentioned in your story. I've had acne for so many years now I can't remember when I used to not think of my skin every second of every day. And yet still, if I even have one decent sized zit on my face, i'll choose to stay inside my house. So I applaud you for being strong enough to take meeting that person, and using their example to empower yourself.

    Take 3 pink benadryl and pass out.
  12. If god is a real thing, then he totally sucks at creating living creatures I must admit. I could have done so much better. There are just so many flaws in his system. Like pooping. Why do living things have to poop? It's totally gross.
  13. http://www.quackwatch.com/11Ind/perricone.html Just thought i'd post this for you to have a look at. My mom went through the Perricone phase for a while and it's just something I never really understood. But if you go through with it, let me know how it goes. I'm sure the diet part of cutting out sugar will help more than anything.

    Can anyone explain?

    Yeah, I was crying about it last night and my dad was trying to calm me down and go over the possibilities, saying it could be mosquitoe bites. Highly doubtful. They aren't filled with pus. Ugh and my dermatologist doesn't have an appt until September 28th.

    Thanks Wynne for all the helpful advice. I gave my dermatologist a call, and i'm waiting for them to call me back, so hopefully I can get an appointment with them soon. I've been using emu oil, and I don't really need to use a sunscreen as I never leave my house. My rosacea flares never include papules or pustules, I only blush/flush. And lately my rosacea has improved so greatly that i'll only blush/flush if I eat spicy food, which I never do. That's the thing though is I have not done ANY

    They're inflamed. And i've been using Persa-gel 10 to spot treat, and I feel a burning sensation so yeah I know it's irritating my rosacea, but i'm still going to use it in the meantime because I think it's working. But besides spot treating, using BP on a regular basis would be a very bad idea for someone who has rosacea. Retinoids are also bad for rosacea as well.

    They didn't irritate my skin, they just didn't do anything either.

    I tried spironolactone, it didn't work. And i've tried glycolic acid products before without any success.

    Can anyone explain?

    No, I don't take a multivitamin. I only take fish oil and zinc. And no, I don't get any irritation from Finacea.
