  1. My condition looks like text book back acne though for what my derms have told me and pictures I’ve seen though..... Sent you a private message. Thanks for the response.
  2. I’ve posted here before and have tried various treatments. I’m 33 now and have dealt with this forever ...Maybe im never consistent enough because at times I just lost all hope. I’ve used the regimen in the past once but probably didn’t use it consistently enough and over dosed on glycolic acid applying twice a day at times .. For my current state of acne which to me is the worst ever is it even worth it to try again and put the money done for it ? I’ve been using Panaxol body wash and haven
  3. I purchased the regimen about 3 months ago more or less. I haven't been using it consistently . Some days I do miss and some days only once but for the most part I've followed it when my schedule allows . I'm about to run out and I'm still breaking out at times with cysts on my back that are a bit painful. I'm 32 and have dealt with this issue for a while now. I'm desperately trying to avoid accutane and antibiotics. Should I continue with the regimen and follow it more strictly or just
  4. any advice or pointers on what I should do? Not sure if I should be exfoliating or moisturizing or cleansing or what at the moment. Ended up picking away at my skin last night out of frustration which I'm sure didn't make things any better. Is this severe enough to contemplate antibiotics /accutane? Thanks in advance for any help .
  5. No nothing like that. I was using hair gel for a few days but this was happening before that. I've stopped using the hair gel to see if gets better but it hasn't Thanks for the response
  6. What type of acne in this? I've suffered from acne my whole life on the body but the face hasn't given me too many issues. I'm 30 now and my forehead and progressively gotten worse. Seems like a bunch of tiny bumps that are appearing more frequently. Any suggestions as to what these are?
  7. Thanks for the response. Worried about moisturizing my back just because I have sensitive skin and worried about making the condition on my back even worse.
  8. Ok so I'm recently started to use a benzoyl peroxide wash for my back. It's called panoxyl and it contains benzoyl peroxide at 4.5%....is this a good strength to use ? I've been using it for about a week now and its begun to dry out my skin a bit and also itching has set in. Is that normal and expected ? Is benzoyl peroxide safe for long term use ? Because I've already accepted that at 30 im going to be dealing with acne in some way shape or form for the rest of my life anyway. Also as fa
  9. Ok.... So just to let you know and I'm not saying this to simply make you feel better....but I'm in the same position only difference is I've never known the feeling of being completely clear because I've never been consistent enough with any routine. I always get discouraged and just give up. Mentally this "disease" has almost crippled me in the past and stopped me from doing anything. It sucks. My face was always clear with the exception of a few spots here and there...no cysts...but I've r
  10. I know it's difficult but there's a chance that maybe your body just can't handle your current diet. You might want to try adjusting that a bit before anything else. It seems like you know that the greasy and oily foods are causing your problem...Or at least affecting it negatively. That's about 90 percent of the stress with acne...not knowing the cause as it can vary from person to person. The fast food is obviously hurting you.....
  11. From what I've seen accutane used for....I don't think your situation is severe enough for it. My back is much worse then your current situation and doctors are hesitant to put me on accutane....
  12. Lol thanks. Yea j just assumed that it was the antibiotic simply cause it's a spot I've never had a breakout on other then the occasional pimple or two. The antibiotic was really the only thing out of the norm for me recently......I'm assuming that the awful eating I've been probably didn't help either but I've always been on the fence about diet and acne being related anyway.....
  13. Ironically enough doing nothing actually seems to calm my face quiet a bit from the dryness and Rosacea as well. If only treating all forms of acne were that simple.... Lol...
