  1. So I have spring break in TWO weeks, which is going to be great with the sun on my face and back. I need some vitamin D! I take vitamin D supplements every now and then, but i want the real stuff. Anyway, the reason I am back on here is to look at my progress that I made last year with my acne, and see if I can do anything about my current situation. Face: three large cysts on chin (always the trouble spot) and multiple, around 10, spots on the rest of my face. Localized mstly on the forehea
  2. hey guys, I have cut back to only using some clindomyocin lotion on my stubborn cysts, which are mostly due to hormones. However, I have always battled really really dry skin, even before using any acne clearing products (which notoriously dry out the skin). I was looking for something that would mousturize me really well without breaking me out. I saw the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost line in a store the other day and wondered if you guys had tried it?? I think the one for 'very dry skin' tha
  3. Well, I had a long summer in the sun and a few months back at school with no back acne at all and close to no facial acne. It was great! But of course, I'm back. Back has about 3 big spots and some small bumps on my neck. While my face has 4 or 5 small bumps and one HUGE cystic bump on my chin. My chin has always been a problem area, and now its starting up again. I don't know why my acne is awful during winter...i'm guessing becaues of the lack of vitamin D, but here I am again, with acne.
  4. ACNE UPDATE! Face: still only one very very stubborn cyst left (its going away, but it is definitely taking its sweet time). stikl keep having those stubborn little zits all over random spots on my face (around 5 or so). the little spots come and go everyday. They are small and some are even flesh colored so its not a huge deal, but its annoying. Honestly, I think its from the benzoyl peroxide . I am giong to try to stop using it except on my cystic zits starting tomorrow (I already used it

    Face

    My face on BP, clindamycin, and neutrogena products
  7. Well, I said I was going to post a picture in my gallery, but I keep forgetting...but I will soon! Quick update: face: cysts are almost completely gone. Have around 3-4 little tiny pimples that aren't too noticeable (easily covered with makeup), so I am not too worried about them. However, I do have about 10 acne scars from all of my cysts. They are slowwwwwwly going away. I mean SLOWLY. I have had acne scars before...and on my sensitive/pale face they take around 3 or so months to fully
  8. So, I know I am supposed to be studying for my exams, but of course I am doing skin care research...so i guess if I fail at least my skin will hopefully look nice. Anyway, I just bought some new makeup to try out- covergirl's tru blend mineral pressed powder and Maybelline's super stay 24 hour concealer and was thinking of going out to buy the physicians formula talc free mineral foundation My regular makeup (covergirl's aquasmoothers foundation) does not break me out at all, co
  9. Yeah, I don't know if I will be drinking in 'moderation' haha. But, I hope it doesn't do anything too bad to my stomach/liver/any other vital organ. Thank you for the advice!
  10. Obviously, I have been sucked into finals week. However i have a BIG BIG issue that I need to ask about, which is why I am writing this entry... Well the 5th is my 21st birthday (yay me!), however, I am on bactrim still (oh no). I have looked up alcohol interactions with this drug and don't think I'll be taking the risk of drinking while on it...so I'm going to have to stop taking the bactrim before it is time to. oooppps. medical side of acne.org, don't hate me, please. I know you should n
  11. Its finals week- so I wanted to go ahead and post about what is going on this week a little earlier than at the end of the 3rd week mark... back- clearing (almost completely clear besides red marks and slowly fading bumps that you can't really see, but that I can feel on my back) face- cysts are clearing, SLOWLY. So slowly. The bp is helping (still only spot treating), but I'm still getting other bumps on my face (not as bad as the cysts), so it is still not 100% clear at all. Have been
  12. Those things sound great, and I just checked out your blog. It sounds like we have similar skin (definetely combination skin type and sensitive), but I looked up the products and unfortunately I don't think I can get them in the US. :/ I would have to get them shipped in from AU. Hopefully I can find something similar here, and hope that works as well. Thanks for the comment though! I really like knowing that people are reading the stuff I am writing because the acne life gets lonely sometimes!
  13. My doctor ended up switching me to ortho tri cyclen (generic version actually: tri previfem) and giving me bactrim to take daily. I really hope this works! How long until you saw improvements with the birth control? I keep hearing that it may cause an initial breakout in the first 2 months, so I'm nervous. I asked my doctor about this and she said that if you experience an initial break out then it was probably zits that were already on thier way to surfacing and not due to the pill. Not sur

    Back

    My back through the acne regimen I have chosen
  15. Well... My back is getting better. I think the picture I posted to my gallery was a little misleading on what it actually looks like (bad lighting, etc.). It isn't fully better yet. I still have some (around 5) active acne spots, but they are starting to subside. My back has been so itchy and dry lately though that I have been putting a small amount of my face lotion (neutrogena combination skin lotion) on my neck and upper shoulders. My face on the other hand is getting better and worse at
