  1. If you do a google search for the area where you live, you might be able to find a dermatologist who is experienced in treating multiethnic/dark skin.
  2. Are you making out a lot (kissing, etc.?) Does he have stubble that could be irritating your skin? Are you going down on him a lot? [don't need to answer to us, just something to think about.] Your skin might just be irritated from friction or an unusual amount of skin contact.
  3. minocycline and accutane can both also be hepatoxic (liver damaging) so that's another reason to avoid taking them at the same time.
  4. I've had really good luck with using baby diaper rash ointment on my lips at night. I put on a thick layer and sleep with it on. You can't use this stuff during the day because it's a very thick, opaque, beige-grey and looks really ghostly. Also, it tastes kind of gross. It's tolerable, but not really pleasant either. Here is what I use: http://www.flandersbuttocksointment.com/ It has the added benefit of being called "buttocks ointment." I actually bought this as a joke because I thought it wa
  5. Days 79-92 May 20 - June 1, 2007 4080mg I've finally updated my photo gallery! If there are no new photos from days 60 and 92, that means they're still waiting for moderator approval so check back. My skin is as dry and annoying as ever. My dosage got upped to 80mg, which is the maximum dosage my doctor said she'll ever prescribe me. She would've kept me on 60 but I told her I'd rather increase my side effects for a short amount of time than drag my treatment on for a longer amount of time. S
  6. I'm just wondering if any of you have sucessfully used an online pharmacy for your accutane prescription. I do have a prescription from my doctor. My health insurance recently ran out, so I'm paying out of pocket for the rest of my course. The online Canadian pharmacies seem SO much cheaper and I would like to order from them if possible. Online, it's priced at $150 for my month's supply (60 pills of 40mg) vs. $500-$700 for the same amount in a USA pharmacy. Are these online places legitimate?
  7. It may also be dehydration. I've found that most headaches I've had in my life were due to dehydration. BUT - like others have said - pressure can be a side effect so you really should see a doc just in case. Since the pressure is a fluid, it might be a bad idea to drink extra water in hopes of alleviating simple dehydration when it might be something entirely different - I don't know, and no one can know except a doctor.
  8. Maybe it's because people with acne are so obsessed with trying to detox/live healthy to improve their acne that they don't smoke because they think it could contribute to the acne.
  9. Days 67-78 May 8 - May 19, 2007 3240mg My chapped lips are driving me CRAZY!!!!! It's my lips and the corners of my mouth. No other part of my face/body is this bad. My "eczema" seems to be going away after using a heavy duty moisturizer on it every other day or so. I have been using La Roche Posay brand "Lipikar" body moisturizer. I use this around the corners of my mouth. I had been using it on my whole face for a few days. But it seemed to clog my pores a bit, so now I am only using it aro
