  1. Thank you for the tips! I am currently taking lo loestrin birth control which helps my acne somewhat....I think I will ask to be put on antibiotics soon...I took Solodyn for 3 months over the winter and experienced great results, so hopefully the same will happen again
  2. The pictures posted below were taken Tuesday June 24 in the morning after cleansing my face. I have noticed a reduction in size of large pimples that were on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I have not noticed any difference in the blackheads on my nose or chin. The finacea gel and ziana gel have not made my skin dry--I apply the cerave moisturizing cream a few minutues after I apply either treatment to my face. My skin is still oily, but with the right makeup products I can help to control how shi
  3. I took the following pictures Monday morning on June 16 after washing my face. I have noticed some improvements from last week. I have realized that the finacea gel makes my pimples form a white head and the ziana gel helps to get rid of the white head over night. So far I am noticing a gradual improvement from when I started using these products. I have not been in the sun as much at all the past week and a half--I do not know if this has had an impact on my skin. Today my skin looks better t
  4. I have been using my topical creams Finacea Gel and Ziana Gel for about a week now. I have been applying Finacea Gel after washing my face in the morning. I have been applying Ziana Gel after removing my makeup and washing my face at night. I apply moisturizer to my face after the the gel's have absorbed into my skin for a few minutes. My skin looks worse than before I started using these topical treatments...I hope that this is just my skin purging. I understand that retanoids take a few months
  5. Did you like azelaic acid when you used it? How long did it take to start seeing results, if any?
  6. I received full sizes of my new topical treatments today. Ziana (clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%) Gel Finacea (azelaic acid) Gel, 15% I have been using samples from my dermatologist for the past few days. I have been applying finacea in the morning and ziana in the evening after cleansing my face. I have not noticed any side effects such as drying or irritation (I use CeraVe moisturizing cream and Cetaphil daily moisturizer with spf 15 when I know I will be in the sun). I have
  7. I'm not offended! I am just a little weary to take antibiotics again because it kind of upset my stomach while I was taking it in the past and I know that antibiotics make birth control work less effectively (and I'm not trying to have any surprises in the near future). I'm glad it has worked for you though!
  8. I have been struggling with acne and breakouts for as long as I can rememeber. I have oily skin, large pores around my nose, blackheads on my nose and some on my chin, and hyperpigmentation from old pimples. I got my first pimple when I was about 7 years old, and began to consitenty break out starting around age 11 or 12. I have been seeing dermatologists for 5 years and throughout those 5 years I have been prescribed many antibiotics, topical treatments, and washes. I took a six month course of
  9. Helpful, but not a cure for acne

    I have suffered from acne since I was about 10 years old. After trying many drugstore remedies and topical treatments/antibiotics from my dermatologist I decided to begin a 6 month cycle of accutane (summer-winter of 2010). I suffered dryness of my skin and lips, but it was manageable with aquaphor and cerave moisturizing cream. Because my skin's oil production ceased, I noticed improvement in the appearance of blackheads on my nose and chin and painful cystic acne breakouts on the entire surfac
