    red marks and sunshine

    Just read the FAQ - sorry should have read it before posting.
  2. hi i recently finished a 6 month accutane course which has cleared ny skin but there are alot of red marks on my back where i had acne...im planning on hitting the sun - will it have any effect on my red marks? thanks

    Anyone completely clear?

    I think you gotta bite the bullet and try accutane. Im 22 and just finished a 6 month accutane course and my skin is PERFECT. I had an opportunity to go on accutane when i was 18 when my acne started and i said no to it - this is one of the biggest regrets i have becuase i missed out on alot due to my insecurity that i developed due to having bad acne. Oh yeah scars too.

    benzoyl peroxide and accutane?

    after about 10 days on accutane it was obvious for me that i couldnt use both at the same time - because it BURNED! i strongly advise against using both at the same time
  5. has anyone else experienced this? theres one muscle just under my left eye that has been twitching uncontrollably on and off for the last 3 days....ive got one week of a 6 month accuatne course (skin is flawless now) left so i think ill stop now but has anyone else experienced this?
  6. can anyone give me some info on taking creatine supplements and lifting weights whilst taking accuttane? im guessing its a no no...im 2.5 months into a 6 month 40mg/day accutane course - im guessing taking creatine now is a bad idea?

    Accutane and surgery

    my dermatoligist said no way when i asked him if it was ok to get 4 wisdom teeth pulled whilst taking accutane, the healing process is hampered too much by the drug so youre gonna have to wait until about a month after your course of accutane unless you wanna get horrendus scarring
  12. hi ive been on (ro)accutane for a week now to treat the acne on my back and neck...i had great success with 'the regimen' for the acne on my face it cleared it up around 80%....but a week into my accutane treatment (40mg a day) ive noticed that benzoyl peroxide (BP gel) when applied to my face now really burns the skin, it passes after abouit 10 minutes but i can only see it getting worse the longer im on accutane....any advice?

    'Bacne' Scars - help

    hi, i have quite bad scarring on my shoulders and upper back, and pretty bad scarring on my face/neck. i visited a dermatolagist recently and he said he can treat the scars on my face and neck quite effectively but says that he cant do much for the scars on my back as he said scar treatments 'just dont work' on the skin of your back....has anyone else been told this and has anyone ever had bacne scar treatment? help!
