  1. Hi Souless, I can't help but to write to you and beg you to get some help.....i know what you are feeling having been instituted twice in the past 10 years....you have major depression my friend. It is not a bad thing...you can't help it, you were born with it.....i've been you. and i was so close to hurting someone or myself it wasn't funny. Nobody ever took me serious!!! and you are serious!! your not just spouting off are you? I KNOW..... please understand that these feelings you have
  2. If you don't feel that this dr. is listening to your needs, or even listening to you at all, then fire him and go see someone else. I was at the mercy of a dr long ago, or so i thought, finally i just had the guts to go to someone else and i swear from that point on everything changed!!! If i had to file a lawsuit for malpractice i would sue the previous one because for years he kept giving me the crappy creams and gels that did nothing for me...then the new doc diagnosed me with cystic acne
  3. Hi Sunshine, Thats to bad about the reoccurances. I was perscribed accutane for a year and a half. To my doctor, that was considered a cycle. The extra 6 mos was to," seal the deal" as he put it. I have never had a reoccurance since. I honestly forget what the dosage was as it was so long ago. I do remember that when my course of treatment was done, he then put me on retin A for 6 mos. Which is a topical accutane...so to speak.
  4. Hi all! I took accutane about 12 years agao and was prescribed because i was diagnosed with severe cystic acne. I was told that accutane works the best for cystic acne....cystic is very deep, large, red, and none reactive to any topical medicine. Usually is prescribed after you have tried everything else. I have to tell you it did wonders. by the end of the year my acne was all gone. Yes, it does have side effects...severe drying of your skin and lips, while your taking it the acne does ge
  5. the only reason why i tried it, was because my dermatologist told me to try it. He had a few patients who claimed that it worked wonders! so maybe you guys weren't doing it right? I don't know.. i do know that the instructions tell you diddly squat so its possible that people have been applying it incorrectly...??? who knows...it is supposed to be a 6-8 month process.
  6. Hi all day 3......i'm telling you i am seeing a response to this stuff... really! Last night i put a little more than usual on the problem areas and i swear it was like a chemical peel......tingling was, ALMOST, unbearable. But it was doing something, i can feel it. So the key must be how your applying it, how much, and make sure you still wash fash in between applications, and i make sure i exfoliate to get all the dead stuff off in the morning. i will keep you informed!
  7. Hi all, I just picked up the mederma yesterday ( although probably wouldn't have if i read this first) any hew it comes in 2 sizes i got the large one. It is a clear gel that you are supposed to apply generously 3-4 times a day. I did what it said, washing my face in between each application....each time it left a slight tingling sensation. This morning i awoke to a slight redness. starting reapplying all over again in the same fashionit only takes a few minutes to escape to the restroom, w
  8. Not to be redundant, but i agree. It can dry out moderrate acne and only in moderate sun exposure.(minor) amount. Remember that sun can also cause scarring of some people with severe acne..not to mention may aggravate it further...it did help me in the past but it is not for everyone....please use caution when trying new things. amy
  9. Yes i also found that it worked wonders the reason being is the drawing action of the salt as well as the drying. A good winter remody although not as effective as the beach water, is "epsom Salts" in your bath water also helps to draw the infection to the surface to therefore speed healing. MODERATE sun can also help to dry but keep in mind that it can also make matters worse and cause some serious scarring. so use sunscreen!!! good luck Amy
  10. I'm a little confused( he he it doesn't take much) Did you put mint juice and lemon juice on scars or active acne....what is minimizing your scars? just curious...thank you amy
  11. here are my expectations... is it possible to have one procedure even if it is a radical one, to rid ourselves of these scars completely??? This may sound selfish but if i'm going to spend in the upwards of 5 thousand say.....then i expect it all to be gone!! Is this far fetched? i don't want 50% better i want 99.9-100% better.. like it was before. (i know i'm a freak huh?)

  13. I Had my whole face done approx 10 years ago. at that time it was a day surgery thing. my particular plastic surgeon told me that my scarring was minor, so, i would be extremely pleased with the results. Well when i left i looked like a mummy and couldn't take off the bandages for 2 weeks. i was prescibed percocet and told me the healing process would be an ongoing thing-that it would get better and better as time went on. I suffered the worst pain i have ever had!!!(i've birthed 2, 10 lb
