  2. oh geez, im sorry, ok for even starting the thread, didnt realise it would cause so much ????? I am NOT recommending anyone to use toothpaste as an acne cure, geez, i merely asked if anyone had tried it apart from me.......i wont bother next time!
  3. Sorry to upset ya luxlisbon, but i think i have teenage acne, im on oxytetracyclene and its cleared my acne.......for the moment anyway- even if i do have a face like a tomato from bad sunburn. Had one pimple when i missed a dose for a day, and now its scaring me cos if i come off it i dont want to break out worse than before :-s
  4. really shouldnt be writing this, i was very stupid and shouldnt have done it, but im on oxytetracycline and yesterday went surfing near where i live, 2 hours in the sea--- result??? mega mega sunburn, i didnt know that the stuff made u extra UV sensitive, so i look like a tomato head,and a shiny one at that, dont anyone ever go in the sea when its sunny.... esp if ur on acne treatment! also, i keep hearing that when you come off these treatments your acne is like a zillian times worse again,
  5. Heehee this is a cool thread, has anyone ever had a spot/pimple up their nose, it is the most painful experience ever, you usually get one on the outside aswell just to make it more unfair.

A while ago I used a brand called "OXY on the spot" which is basically Benzoyl Peroxide. i went at it quite a bit when i had fairly mild acne but suddenly where i had used it, i came out in loadsa little spots, (not acne) so i quit using it, i also used before it and exactly where i used it i got impetigo, whether that's just a coincidence i really dont know but does anyone have any information on this, im reluctant to use it again as im already on prescription stuff but did anyone else experie
  9. Yeah, I know what u mean about the gel peeling off, it does that too, but my skin peels aswell, i quit using it after the 3rd day because of peeling and i havent had any bad spots since, but im also on oxytetracycline. I havent used the isotrex for four days and im still peelin quite bad because of it, i must be real sensitive. isotrex is a brand name of isotretinoin, it says on the tube, anyway, thanks for the help! xx katie xx
