    Severe Acne Redness Treatment Help Wanted

    A good exfoliator could help. what works well for me is an AHA as it works on the surface of the skin (sor far I have been wrking with 10%)

    I guess if you're clear there is no need to change your regime. I also don't know whether or not this stuff would work for nodular cystic, I suffer mostly from clogged pores, comedones and on top of that some papules and that kind of thing (so in the acne world I guess that would make my acne not too bad but still annoying).

Unfortunately I do not think you can just import it from other countries, however,as I said there are some 3% products readily available (for example Cordes 3%).
  7. Hey everyone, I signed up because I wanted to document my new regime and how it's going. And maybe also hear some opinions, experiences or just general banter I will post a history of my acne at some point but for now suffice it to say that I have struggled with it for more or less 10 years. It started n puberty and is still with me now at 25. (Although I was rid of it for about 3 years thanks to a really low dose of Accutane - really low..in the end I took one pill of 20mg once a week) S
