  1. Also, it's VERY difficult to visualize clear skin when you're getting pitted scars on a daily basis. Even if the acne were to clear, those will remain as reminders. if acne can be caused by , digestive, hormonal and blood sugar problems , tell me why a healthy life style isn't going to help? a healthy life style is clearly shown to benefit each of those problems . also, "visualization" alone does not do much. rather, "Accurate thinking" is what fuels visualization. The "body" isn't me

(just keep this in mind for now) First of all I would like to thank "I am snow", for instilling in me the need to write this post. Posts like the one "I am snow"wrote ( Mind over Acne) are what brings about "paradigm shifts". I began my search for clear skin pretty much like everyone else. Pretty much the same paradigm. Started out with an OTC benzoyl peroxide gel. A swanky face wash. Almost immediately the effects we

  6. oh for pete's sake! it is silly posts like this that makes people with acne even more paranoid than we already are. i love how you think you are more qualified than our doctors and GPS to support a statement like antibiotics will kill you (in your original post). im sorry you've had these problems, i really am, but stop scaring off people like me, and others just starting an antibiotics treatment, from trying out something which can potentially clear us of acne!

  8. thnx comeback kid...im lowering my doxy dose..i take 50 mg 2wice a day and apply bp in the night...thing is these antibiotics work rather quickly for me..they actually give me clear skin in about 2 to 3 days..i break out mainly on the sides of my nose...i get to meet the derm in bout a months time...i think the reason antibiotics are used for acne is to just clear acne and inflammations related rather quickly ..which u then supplement with topicals...some pple stay on them for a while get clear
  9. I was concerned about being on doxy for an indefinite amount of time. At the beginning of this past summer, my doc put me on doxy 20 mg 2x per day. My acne cleared up a little bit, but toward the end of the summer, I stopped taking it in fear that taking an antibiotic for too long would screw up my body's flora. Over the course of the following few months, my acne flared up again, and I went back to the doc. He strongly suggested I went back on doxy and assured me that being on such a low dosage
