  1. Well, 2 weeks til my appointment. I'm out of the medicine now and it appears the hot compresses have had minimal effects
  2. I have the bp & sulfer mask from proactiv. Will either of these help the cyst at all? Or just make it any worse? Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the replies! I am sooo hoping the compresses work, because she said if it doesnt then they will need to cut it out And a scar from that is definately what I do not want.
  4. I have a cyst about the size of a penny on my left cheek. I've had it for about 2.5 months now and have been to the doctor twice. The first time he put me on minocycline hcl 75mg two times per day. He also said to do hot compresses twice a day. I went back about a week ago and saw a different doctor there. She had me continue the medicine, and told me to do the hot compresses 3 times a day for 10-15 each time as hot as I could stand it. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think that it is h
  5. I've noticed here lately that after washing and drying my face, after a few minutes, the top part along the ridge of my nose appears in the mirror like it has a rough texture. It is more of an orange peel looking texture. Is this just because I have stripped it of any oils that should be there? Or what? And how, if possible, do I get it back to where it appears smooth even after just washing? I thought that it may be the Repairing Lotion (BP) from Proactiv, but haven't moved away from it w
  6. Alrighty, on my cheek I have what I assumed were whiteheads, but I'm not sure if thats what they actually are. They are about 1/8th of an inch to 3/16ths wide and are white and are not at the very surface of my skin. I have about 5-6 there. They cannot be seen all the time, only when I apply my Cetaphil Moisturizer since it leaves a shiney feeling, or if my face is red like when I get out of the shower. I'm not sure if they need to be somehow mashed out, or what exactly to make them go away.
  7. Due to the moisurizer I bought leaving a greasy type feel, Cetaphil, I'm going to be doing the following. I need some opinions on this to see if I should maybe change it some. I'm sure it will all depend on how it works, but ya know Morning shower: wash face with only water dry face & apply only the Repairing Lotion from Proactiv Bedtime: wash face w/ Cetaphil bar soap dry face & apply the Repairing Lotion from Proactiv apply Cetaphil Moisturizer What I'm doing is wanting to skip ou
  8. Yeah they are right on top of my skin and no matter what position I try I cannot get them to come out. Thanks! I'll give that a shot and see how it goes
  9. I have a few whiteheads on my cheek that are about the size of pencil lead as far as how large they are. I've had them for a few months but cannot seem to get rid of them. Is there anything I can treat them w/ to make them come to a head or something so I can make them go away? Would applying the Mask product from Proactiv to them over the night for a few days help them to go away? Thank you.
  10. Thanks for the replies The baby lotion doesn't make my face look greasy, it actually makes it look more matte type look. So far, I haven't had any problems w/ using it like I have. It doesn't seem to clog my pores or at least that I have noticed so far. Aimeee, did you just completely replace using Proactiv w/ the Cetaphil Cleanser? I have a bar of Cetaphil soap that I use on weekends when I don't really have the time to use the Proactiv before I go to bed. Is there anything else you woul
  11. Quick question. Here lately after I get out of the shower in the mornings and dry off my face, my face has been very dry and sometimes peels on my cheeks. I use Proactiv at night and wash my face in the shower with just a washcloth and water. Is it just the weather here lately that may be causing the dryness in my face skin? Is there anything in Lander Baby Lotion (pink bottle) that might be harmful to my face? Particularly any scaring/acne spots that I currently have? I've been putting it
  12. Were any of the icepick scars on your nose? Could you kinda give me an idea of how that works? Do you do one treatment, and don't do another one til the scab is gone or do you wait a certain amount of time? Any place you recommend to pick some up at? I've attached a pic of mine that I am dealing with. They are not noticable much at all in the pic due to the lighting, but trust me, they are way deeper looking. The one that is on the left in the pic also has a few larger pores around it, any
  13. I'm wondering if anyone here knows if the generic kits that you can get at wolly world that look exactly like Proactiv, contain the same stuff and does just as good? It's only 1/3 the price, so if it is the same stuff, just under another name, I'd love the save the extra cash. Thanks in advance!
