  1. Wow, I can't imagine sacrificing my education because of acne. I had acne as an undergrad, and you just get used to dealing with it. There are other people in college with acne. Once I was over 25 and still had acne and felt like the only one, that's when i finally got on accutane.
  2. you are so damn gorgious.i want to call you sexy, but i don't want to be inapropriate because i don't know how you'll react to me sayin that.

      3 Month mark

      3 Months into accutane- no active acne for past ~1.5 weeks.
    2. DR. Dans cortibalm is great. I ordered a few off amazon and have used it constantly.
    3. To the original poster: Are you: -staying hydrated? Remember to drink lots of water during the day. Carry around a bottle to help you remember. Dry body= dry skin. -Taking any supplements? I found that taking omega-3 supplements and vitamin E has helped. Good luck.
    4. The babies with acne are surprising, but honestly they won't end up with any scarring. Those pictures of extreme scarring though... those people are disfigured for life. Like the other posts here, makes me soooooo glad for what I have. Its nice to feel that, after stressing about having like 8 pimples. Wow. Just, wow. I can't get over it. Really an eye opener.
    5. It depends on how big each pill is.
    6. I have gone through several stages. My chin has always been a problem spot but one summer I got acne on my forehead, inexplicably. Acne on cheeks comes and goes. When I started accutane, I broke out really badly on my chin, like 6 or so big painful cysts. They all went away and I thought I was in the clear, and then I broke out on my cheeks! So then my chin was clear but my cheeks were covered. Now I just have a few here and there on my cheeks.
    7. This is probably Angular Cheilitis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angular_cheilitis I've had this before and putting some Aquaphor on there cleared it up in a few days for me.
    8. Biggest popped zit ever. If videos like this are too much for you, don't watch it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hDwiC2rl78
    9. The experience you had at Target sounds like a panic attack. You seem to have some issues with anxiety, do you have a family doctor or GP that you could talk about this with? Hang in there. Please give your treatment some time before you give up. Most acne treatments cause it to get worse before it gets better. But its worth it in the long run. I had the worst acne I've had in my life after starting accutane but now 3 months in I have 1 pimple on my face. I almost quit at the time, but it was w
    10. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/24/health/24real.html?em "THE BOTTOM LINE There is some evidence that foods high in sugar can worsen acne. "
    11. What I find shocking is that your female friend repeated that trash to you.
    12. I used Dan's products a while back so I don't know if the formula has changed since then, but I always hated the smell of the cleanser. It smelled exactly like mold or mildew to me.
