  1. I've been on 80 for 2 months. Before that I was on 40. I realize it's high but, conglobata is very resistant. I'm kind of afraid to tell anyone anything, including my derm. Afraid that I'll be taken off of it, and well, that's no good either. Really though, is it normal to be sleeping so much?
  2. I'm on my second course of accutane. The first was a 9 month course in 2004. I'm on it again, and have been for about 5 months. This is the second time I've had conglobata. It's so severe that even the best doctors in the state on the subject (at University of Michigan) were fairly perplexed and didn't know what to do besides increasing the dose. I take 80mg a day even though I only weigh about 140 pounds. I'm basically skin and bones. Even at some points I would still get cysts as associated
  3. Well, if it was somewhere in the US, I'd like to go anywhere southwest, like Arizona. If it was Europe, I'd definitely choose Finland. Or anywhere but Michigan, really.
  4. So, here's my take on the cloxacillin. My derm said it was "just another antibiotic that works on the skin" and listed off some other familiar antibiotics that do the same. *moderator edit* Well I've been taking 4 pills a day (total of 2000mg) for over 2 weeks now, and it hasn't really improved my skin at all. Although I must say it hasn't gotten worse either. Still, this isn't the answer. Keep in mind though--I have conglobata. No antibiotic is going to cure that. I was hopeful for a little
  5. So, DckSteel has been awesome enough to inform everyone about this, which worked well for him. So in theory, it should work for some of us too, if not all of us.. Anyway... he actually had similar acne to mine, which is how he found me on here. I have conglobata though, and have been on my second course of accutane for 5 days now. *moderator edit*
  6. I had the exaaact same thing 3 years ago (and now have it again, developing right on top of the old scars), and I took an 8-month course of accutane to get rid of it. But I had it BEFORE I took accutane.. sounds like you developed it while taking it. I've heard of that happening with somebody else before, too. It makes me wonder. I wish I knew the answer. I would have suggested to keep taking it until it was gone, though. They claim that it gets worse at first because your acne is "surfacing
  7. If any of you take the time to read this and give me your honest response... I thank you very much. So... I've recently become very self-conscious. I'll make this as short as I can. About a month ago, I started coming down with conglobata (for the second time in my life, had it 3 years ago as well). If anyone else has had this, maybe you can understand better. I don't want to gross anyone out, but this is what I'm going through. I have about 30+ cysts covering my chest and back, and they're co
  8. Your point..? Yeah, it's pretty scary. I don't know, I guess I've just ran out of ideas. *sigh*
  9. Hi, I'm sure this has been discussed many times before, but, I'm curious as to what you all think is the cause of your acne. Lately I've been seeing people discover what caused it, or what they THINK caused it. Milk, sugar, lack of nutrition, stress, etc. I have yet to find what causes mine, it's quite frustrating. And now I'm almost considering going a new route; I'm considering never eating bad foods ever again! Going all organic... having 70% of my daily diet being fruits and vegetables, a
  10. Wow, looks like me and you are the in same boat... Your description is just like mine. If you're in that much pain and you bleed alot, and wear two shirts, etc... you probably have conglobata, like me. Hopefully you have insurance so you can get on accutane asap!! I don't, on the other hand, and I'm suffering just like you described... I actually paid for a doctor's visit out of my pocket, and even though I can't afford accutane on my own, he prescribed me vicodin.. so I'm forced to take that a
  11. That was tough to read. It mirrors my situation almost exactly..so I understand. Sadly... Do you happen to have cystic acne, or conglobata?
