  1. I want to start using the Benzoyl peroxide from the regimen again but the tube I have has been sitting in my room for about 8 months can I still use it? I don't see an expiration date on it.
  2. I got this tube of BP from the regimen that I want to start using again and it's been sitting in my room for about 8 months can I still use? I don't see an expiration date on it, can anyone tell me if the product is still good for use?
  3. Acne has taken many things away from me but it also made me lost. I was lost i felt like i had nowhere to go, i lost hope, i lost my drive, i lost my patience, and it cornered me into a dark place where I didn't know what to do or what I was going to do.
  4. Looks like typical teen acne to me. Also, and trust me when I say this, it's mild acne. You may think its severe but don't worry it's not. My advice is use the regime and avoid nasty food, and start eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and drink A LOT of water, and I mean a lot, like to the point where you always pee clear.sounds funny but that's what I did. Hope my advice is any help. Good luck
  5. Here's a couple of my bad moments I blame acne as the reason behind the actions. There's the times I would be unnecessarily aggressive towards my family. Leaving my friends "hangin" or ditching them because I was so self conscious. And ignoring this amazing girl all because I didn't want her to see me, even though she wanted to see me regardless of how my face looked.
  6. We mustn't be so sensitive. So screw acne it CAN kiss my derriere.
  7. I know exactly how your feeling I'm currently on month 2 of accutane. Just know your not alone and your acne will not last forever. Good luck and stay strong man.
  8. I need to know if I can use permethrin 5% cream while on accutane. Three days ago my little brother contracted a case of scabies after developing red itchy bumps. His doctor confirmed it was the scabies mite and prescribed him permethrin cream 5%. Now today I noticed a couple of itchy bumps on my arm. I haven't gotten in contact with my derm yet, so my question is can I use the cream they prescribed to him on myself?
  9. Anybody here got any good acne jokes. I couldn't find any good ones on the Internet. I'm really just curious and could use a good laugh. Any types and all types of jokes welcome. So come on and show me your funny side my fellow acne.org users.
  10. Yes I have been there. In fact I still do. I know it wouldn't exactly solve my acne but hey i'm on the road to recovery and I'm tired of being that guy with acne. New places new faces and a fresh start would literally be a breathe of fresh air in my life. And maybe a breathe of fresh air in my life is what I need to rid this acne for good.
  11. Ok so I'm through with my first month on accutane and got my prescription refilled but when I picked it up my pharmacy didnt have the same brand. My derm still prescribed 30mg twice a day for the second month. The first brand name I got was Myorisan. An now they gave me Zenatane. Would switching pose a problem?
  12. If I had the opportunity to have 100% clear skin in exchange for something, I would give up my first born son. Lol jk Seriously though i I would give up junk food, xbox, cursing, or up to 20% percent of all my income for the rest of my life.

    Okay this picture I believe was almost 2 months of using retin A 0.05% and minoclycline. A little improvement as you can see I only have one active white head, a big one unfortunately, and the redness and scars are just barely starting to fade.

    Left side of face. Here I have a couple of white heads too. When i took these pictures it wasn't a good day. Derm had me on Minocycline and retin A .25% and was about a week into use.

  18. Your not the only one I feel the same way. They say it in a sentence and my mind immediately thinks about the commercials. To me it feels like that word will always hold negattive connotations in my mind just because I have and hate acne.
  19. Damnit I need to stop eating all these processed foods! I was doing so good but this weekend I dropped the ball and ate pizza, chips & dip, and a whole bunch of Mac n cheese. Sorry I'm just venting and really regret eating all that junk food and didn't know where to put this. Hopefully I don't break out Anybody else hate doing this? And any recommendations on good healthy food to eat?
  20. Yup I've been in hide out at my house for about 2 months, since this year my acne got to its worse during summer. But it's true the other day I had to go pick up my nephew from school and I was dreading it so much thinkin about how people may react to my face and stare but no they didn't. And I actually enjoyed going and picking up my nephew it reminded me of how he's growing up and reminded me of my childhood I loved it standing there waiting for him to come out the doors and then him seeing me
  21. When you laugh at most of these agreeing that they are so true. Woow these really made me laugh, highlight of my day. It's nice knowing your not the only one going through this. But it still sucks because its so bad that you delete your face book of your phone so people will not deal with the possibility of people inviting you to places etc and to save you the depressing thoughts that come to your mind when everybody on Fb has clear skin an doesn't know what's it like dealing with acne. (My p
  22. Can I use retinoids with the regime? Help I just got prescribed a tretinoin cream and I ordered the regime can I use both of them? Any suggestions recommendations?
  23. I feel you. I was feeling a little better the other week because i washed my face and i literally felt no incoming pimples on my cheeks when i was rubbing with my fingers (the only time i ever touch my cheeks) and i was so excited. This week i started breaking out FML. Its literally like taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back i hate this so much. My parents are getting frustrated because nothing seems to work for me, and I am too it sucks! but i'm doing a little better then I was a month ago! We
  24. Ok so I have been prescribed a tretinoin and antibiotics by my derm, and my question is can I use a Benzoyl peroxide face wash? And if so which product do you recommend?
  25. I feel your pain my life is being controlled by my acne I'm tired of hiding at my house hoping my face will get a little better so I can go outside and let people look at my face man this suuuucks sooo bad I hate how easy people have it they really could care less about the skin on their face and here I am only thing I can think of everyday is my face. I don't know how long I can keep doing this. I only wish there was something that would get rid of this forever and never came back.
