  1. With Acne (Minor/Moderate sometimes) probably a 2. Without something closer to a 8.
  2. Well, first you need to be prescribed one of the drugs by a doctor. Then you bring your prescription to walmart to be filled. They give you a 30 day supply and you pay them $4. Not sure if this answers your question, but thats how it works.
  3. I saw this and thought it might be helpful to some people without insurance. Sure, most of the acne meds covered are just antibiotics and are cheap anyway, but $4 is nothing. It looks like some topical antibiotics are covered too. Take a look for yourself here... http://i.walmart.com/i/if/hmp/fusion/genericdruglist.pdf Current states it in is now: AK, AL, AR, AZ, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, MD, MI, MO, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, SD, TX, VA, VT. No WI for me...oh well. And lets not tu
  4. As far as I know, you still need a prescription for most meds, accutane probably being one of them. It is almost certainly far cheaper, and to get a prescription I have heard that it is basicly paying like $30 to a doctor and him writing you a prescription. As far as I know, it isn't too difficult...alot easier than it is here. I just got back from Mexico, and I bought some retin a and renova. It cost me $2.50 per 40 gram tube....my pharmacy at home charges $48 for a 20 gram tube.
  5. Haha, and you can get Viagra for cheap too! You can even go to some restaurants and get viagra soup!
  6. I just got back from Tijuana, land of 1000 brothels and even more pharmacies. While there, I decided to buy some retin-a and renova, not as much for their acne purposes as for their freckle fading purposes. I knew that I didn't need a prescription, and that they were much cheaper, but WOW. I was floored by the prices. It was cheaper than benzoyl peroxide! At the first pharmacy I paid $10 for a 40 gram tube. Not bad, but I'm glad I only bought one tube their, because I went to another pharmacy a
  7. I'd imagine that it could....particles in smoke may be big enough to clog pores, or they may not....who knows. But also, look at it on the bright side...maybe the smoke has properties to kill the acne bacteria and it will actually help! Probably not, but theres always a possibility. Sorry I don't have a sure answer, just felt like posting as a reminder that not everything is potentially bad.
  8. Alright, I basicly need accutane. I could go into detail about how my mildish acne is affecting my life, but I don't think anyone needs to hear another depressing story. Anyhow, I have tried retin-a, differin, BP, Dan's regimen, oral antibiotics, lots of vitamins, and damn near every OTC product you can buy. My face doesn't respond to any of these. What else could the doc do before putting me on accutane? I go to a normal doctor by the way, not a derm. If I switch doctors, or if I end up going t
  9. Alright, I will be going to Tijuana in July. This sounds like a really dumb question, but I am desperate. I only have mildish acne, but I can't take it. I'm willing to try anything. Differin, retin a, antibiotics, BP and SA don't work. I have tried the regimen to no avail. ANYHOW, do you think I could see a doc in Tijuana and maybe get a prescription for accutane, or somehow get it without a prescription? Too bad it isn't available on the black market.... If there is any chance, I will try. I do
  10. I use a product with the following ingredients in it about 4 times a week.... Active Ingredients: Avobenzone 3.0%, Octisalate 5.0%, Octocrylene 10.0%, Oxybenzone 6.0% Inactive Ingredients: Water, Dihydroxyacetone, Propylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone, Isohexadecane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Tri-C14-15 Alkyl Citrate, Glycerin, Arachidyl Alcohol, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Behenyl Alcohol, Dimethiconol, Phenoxyethanol, Arachidyl Glucoside, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Sodium Polyac
  11. I have a patch (most of my left cheek) that is full of clogged pores. They are tiny white spots that stay for a month or 2, and then eventually turn into an inflamed pustule which lasts for around 2 weeks then turns into a red mark. I don't want each spot to turn into a spot and eventually a red mark, so what can I do about this? I'm using Differin and Doxycycline. Sometimes (twice a week) I exfoliate with a gentle salicylic acid scrub. What can I do to extract these, or at least maybe have them
  12. I am currently on Differin and have been for around 3 weeks. Before I used differin, I used BP for years. I have been using a moisturizer (Eucerin Skin Renewal) for about 3 months, and a different oil free moisturizer before that. I HATE the way moisturizers make my face look and feel, and I think they break me out. Would it be okay for me to stop using a moisurizer? Has anyone done this before? Any advice is appreciated.
  13. I have been using Differin, as well as Doxycycline for 2 weeks now. Now I never had too much of a problem with clogged pores before, I would usually have 1-3 on my face at a time and they arent that noticeable so I just dealt with it. Now, I have a huge cluster of probably 15-20 of them on my left jawline, and a few of them are getting bigger and a little inflamed. Is this normal for differin? I thought it helped with clogged pores, not created them. Are clogged pores part of an initial breakou
