  1. We'll any guys reading this forum? Thoughts, concerns?
  2. Was on a strong dose of accutane for 7 months, been off for 2 months now and my skin is still so tender. Everyday I wear sunglasses to work and when i get there and take them off for the next hour if I go to the bathroom the bridge of the nose from the sunglasses is bright red and looks like a huge cut from a good hour from very light pressure on my skin. The glasses are even padded. When does it stop when can i rest my hand on my cheek and it not be red for an hour?
  3. I see, well personally I think I probably should start dressing better. I;m sure ill feel very uncomfrtoable in those nice clothes but I guess its probably for the best?
  4. O.k, im an average looking guy but with scars and red marks. I've never wen't out and bought new clothes for anything cause I feel like whats th point. If I look bad in the face then will wearing nice clothes really make a diffrence? Girls do you like a guy who dresses sharp and with some good style, does it really make them that more attractive?
  5. Mild acne for many years made me try retin a- big mistake broke me out like never before and gave me the redmarks I have today and scars. Went to accutane and finished it about a month ago and while currently I only get about 1 pimple a month now, my damn cheeks especially around my smile line have a bunch of scars long line scars and I feel like my skin looks like im a senior citizen at age 20. Its so pissing me off.
  6. Yea, my derm really messed me up. I cant describe how mad i am. I went in for my monthly checkup on accutane. Had cysts ebfroe on my visits, he said nothing of it. I go in a few days ago and had two cysts that were shrjinking on their own. Doc says u want a cortison im lik uh idk theyre going down pretty good right now. He kept being persistant and saying oh people love it after i give it to them come on your gonna like it. Since hes a derm I didint wanna say oh i heard it dents your face. So
  7. how the heck did u know i like fishing?

    1. Oh no my mistake IM still on tane 2 months in at 80 mg a day. Im just worried that my current redmarks from tane wont improve after i get off the drug.
    2. After you finished accutane? I have a lot of redmarks and they are very noticeable since I went on tane. Is that because my skin is so thin and they are more noticeable? Anyones redmarks not as noticeable after theyr'e course ended?
    3. I have those tiny bumps or closed comedones and paulas chouce bha i belive its called is suppose to help. IM 2 months in a 80 mg a day prescription. Has anyone taken paulas choice to help with those lil bumps cause they arent going away on accutane just givin me less breakouts. Also I never drink only at weddings, and I have a wedding next weekend, I will give blood the day before the wedding so everythign will be normal. At the wedding I have to drink to survive this wedding trust me. Will g
    4. IM on accutane about 2 and a half months in. Its working, but those stubborn comdeones are there, I asked the same quiestion in that"official" tiny bumps thread but no1 answered. Can you use this while im on accutane? Anyone else using paulas choice on accutane?
    5. Has anyone used these creams while on accutane? Im 2-3 months in and its working just the little bumps arent going anywhere.
    6. Got my blood work done late this month and right now I take 2 pills a day. ITs mmonday i took my one this morning already. Should I take the other one now, and the last one tommorowing morning and then just wait until wed to start the new package? Or should I skip tonites pill and just take one middle of the day tommorow then start the new package wed night?
    7. OK we all know what 90% of the people on here will tell you, don't tan it'll make yer marks last longer, itlll make u get skin cancer, when your 40 your gonna look 60, all that crap. Wether or not all of that comes true, the only thing that I know works for me when I do it is get a tan. I go fishing and when i get burnt it turns into a tan for a week or so. Right now the last 6 or so months I literally only leave the house for work, and to fish, because im so disgusted in my self image
    8. well i switched from dkr to retin a 3 months ago roughly. The retin a io think i had .2 the strongest one broke me out intial outbreak, had like 5 new whiteheads every m,orning and of course i was dumb and extracted them. Now my face has so many redmarks but i got new whiteheads every morning for a good 2 months i guess the purging. Maybe it wont be as bad 4 u.
    9. Derm originally had my prescription at 30 mg to turn into the pharmacy. They said they dont have them in 30 mg so they talked to derm and now i recieved 60 pills at 40 mg a piece. Says to take twice daily. IDk what to do my derm is dumb and when I went in he was picking his nose with a pen and I was worried he didint care. Should i just take 1 40 mg pill a day and then in 30 days when i see him again tell him? IM 145 pounds btw at 6'
