  1. Here I am again, thought I post a little update: The Differin and the Skinoren did not do anything except aggravating my skin and turning me into something resembling a burn victim. End of February I stopped, because my entire face had turned into one huge infection, which by no means was an initial purge. This infection was not caused by Skinoren and Differin (explanation for it comes in the next paragraphs), but Skinoren and Differin were making it worse by the hour, so my doctor told me t
  2. That is really interesting that you mention rosacea! My mother suffers from rosacea - all her life - but it got worse after she reached menopause. For quite some time I have been thinking that I might have inherited some characteristics of her rosacea condition, but that it somehow "mutated" with my teenage acne. Last year, I visited her for a week and forgot my topical antibiotic cream at home. I completely freaked out, terrified that my face would fall off if I didn't apply any cream at a
  3. @noche Oh no, you too? Whilst it's comforting to know I'm not alone, I really don't wish that on anyone else. Never thought I'd say this, but I do wish my hormonal teenage acne back.

I've been using it as my main treatment for the past 4 months and not seen an improvement... so I'm worried that this could be an indicator for Differi
  5. I thought I share my 11-year-war on acne. It's actually quite therapeutical to write it all down... TLDR: Hello, I'm Julia. I'm 23 years old, female and have battled acne since the age of 12 years. After a clean period of 3 years from the age 17-20, it has sadly matured into incurable adult acne according to my dermatologist. In hindsight I'm certain my initial acne was hormonal and completely different from the acne I have today. As a teenager my skin was incredibly oily and
