  1. Brief introduction. I've been battling with acne for several years. I have been through accutane cure 3 years ago, but it came back. Now I've been using accutane again for 7 months as my derm told me. My weight is 70kg and i took 60mg/day for 7 month and the cumulative dose is 180mg/kg The thing is that i was offered accutane pills from a friend of mine, which will last for another 2 months and I'm considering going for 2 extra months without my doc knowing. The reason is simple. I am AFRAID
  2. Hello I'm currently in a middle of a accutane treatment. Stupid as I was, I forgot to bring the pills to my 2 weeks holiday.... So I haven't been able to take the pills for 2 weeks. What will actually happen, did I just screwed it up?? I've heard that the most important thing is the cumulative dose. Will I have to begin from 0 when I'm starting my treatment again or does the previous amount of accutane count in? Anyone that had been in the same situation like me?
  3. Hello, I've done with my second accutane cure which ended 2 weeks ago. The thing is that i got red marks(hyperpigmentation) and would like to do something about it. The summer is coming and I'm aware to use moisturizer with SPF. However, I have exfoliant and serum from Paulas choice at home that i haven't been using yet due to the accutane cure. http://www.paulaschoice-eu.com/resist-weekly-resurfacing-treatment-with-10-alpha-hydroxy-acid.html and http://www.paulaschoice-eu.com/resist-ul
  4. Hi, im currently under accutane. As for moisturizer im using propyless, a kind of lotion. But i want to use a moisturizer with SPF because the sun is coming. I have a moisturinzing with SPF from Paula Choice http://www.paulaschoice-eu.com/skin-recovery-daily-moisturizing-lotion-with-spf30-and-antioxidants.htmlhttp://www.paulaschoice-eu.com/skin-recovery-daily-moisturizing-lotion-with-spf30-and-antioxidants.html Is this one OK to use? Or this one better? La Roche Posay Rosaliac U
  5. I'm currently in middle of an accutane cure(3 months of 6). This is also my second accutane treatment. Atm my face is fine, no acne at all. But a lot of red marks which I know will fade over time. I'm still curious if there is any treatment that i can use to speed up the healing? I can't use laser and AHA, but is there other options that eventually will help to fade these red marks, even if its a minor improvement? Vitamin? Aloe vera? home remedies? Serum?
  6. First round of accutane i had serious acne, but the second round it was only mild acne. I didn't see any improvements because of new acne appeard non stop i think, thus no opportunity for my marks to heal I think. Or, maybe there was minor improvement but no "wow" feeling. This is maybe because I see my face every day in mirror lol, difficult to see any improvements. I think ill try laser after my accutane. Is it OK to use serum during accutane? did u ask your derm when u used it? B
  7. i've also had this issue before! when I took accutane last year, periodically at nights hives/rash appeard all over my body, and I was quite scared. This was one of the most scariest side effect that i've experience. However, I'm not sure if it was becaust of the accutane. At that time I took accutane, traditional chinese medicine and antibiotic at the same time(I was in China and the doc over there cant be trusted, no blood test etc....)!!! Me and my doc decided to stop the treatment. Now w
  8. I finished my first treatment spring 2011, and I began my second treatment autumn 2014 so it has been 3 years apart from my first and second treatment. Already in autumn 2011 my acne came back, but not as worse as before. Back at that time i did try my second accutane treatment, but I failed the blood test and cancelled the treatment. I just let it go, and tried some other stuffs etc. But last year I had enough, and decided to ask my derm for a new accutane treatment(My acne was not really bad,
  9. anyone on accutane who tried egg whites + lemon? or other home remedies? I've heard about vitamin e, which will fasten the healing. Can I take vitamin e as a tablet, and will it help?

  11. The doc gave me antibiotic treatment... Have been using it 1.5 weeks and Im 98% clear! Quite effective. She also gave me some kind of zinc herbs, probably traditional chinese med(?). It's like tea, using boiling water and then drink. So I'm not quite sure if it's the antibiotic who keep me clear or if it's zinc drink.. She also gave me differin but I'm not sure if that will help. Btw, my stuffs rom paula choice just arrived. It's aha weekly, moisturizer with SPF, and a antioxidant serum(unnec
  12. What kind of oral treatment should I go? Supplements? Maybe Chinese traditional medicine? Going to see my derm this Frida. Got a feeling that he will give me antibiotic, again.... I have already been fighting this war 8 years(!) against my acne. I can't stand it anymore. I think it's genetic because my mom also suffered from acne when young. May be my hormones struggling... I don't want to fight anymore, I want cease fire... I'm 22 and I hope it will stop ASAP.
