  1. can we still drink juices with vitamin A?
  2. Started on Tuesday, derm said to take 1 40mg pill a day for 2 weeks and then start taking two for another 2 weeks. So far, I do have decreased oil production which is good. Haven't gotten the IB, but have some flaking around mouth though nothing to bad. Haven't needed to use Aquaphor just yet. Still have some whiteheads. Will update soon. Peace Also, I just drank some vitamin juice which has Vitamin A. Can I drink this or should I stop? TIA
  3. Is there really any hope? I mean only thing I've heard is accutane and even thats not guaranteed to stop oil production when you're done with your course... sigh...
  4. Tell her you asked how to approach her on an acne forum. Works everytime.
  5. Didn't know where to put this but I have some questions regarding a PPO health insurance (US) 1.) Is acne considered a pre-existing condition of the bigger companies (i.e. Aetna, BlueShield)? 2.) When I sign-up, on average, how long before my coverage starts (I'm not looking for specifics but is it days, weeks, months)? 3.) Do I have to meet the annual deductible before the insurance starts to copay for office visits and prescription drugs? 4.) Is a dermatologist usually considered a specialis
  6. this sounds lame. we'd have a bunch of people moping about 1 zit behind their ear. I'd rather establish a hierarchy where the most serious of acne sufferers wield the most power. We will enslave the clear skin and put them to work on a cure for us.
  7. this thread needs more ugly people so i can feel better
  8. yes but especially jealous of people I've seen who've had acne but are now clear as can be. Damnit
  9. I don't like to discriminate so I hate everyday of the week equally
  10. Oh yeah.. shelled out $1000 for photodynamic therapy then the derm put me on retin-A saying my acne was cured and I should focus on getting rid of my red marks. What happen? Severe hyperpigmentation, increased oil production, break outs, and supposedly permanent facial removal so now I can only grow a patchy beard... Everyday I look in the mirror seeing this horrible skin-tone with loads of oil. Regret is part of my daily regimen.
  11. face, face, face, oh dear god face. One can dream....
  12. To an extent, I can see it happening. But not if you have oily skin, constant breakouts, uneven skin tone-bordering red inflamed to light grey, and terrible body acne. Luckily, I have all those going for me...
  13. Is there any sources of protein that I can use instead of chicken? (I eat fish, but not "meat")
  14. Things I've done/am doing that I shake my head to Keep an air purifier right next to me bed Took cayenne pepper supplements which gave me stomach pain Put olive oil on my skin Use to heat water, then put into a big salad bowl and dip my face into it (took 30 minutes each morning) Never use tissues to blow my nose because of the fear of a breakout Did handstands thinking the blood would rush to my face and help cure it Took an apple cider vinegar bath ..... sigh
  15. I'm just going to share with you some advice. I'm not sure if this relates to you or not, but I was in the same situation as you when I was going through high school. The 1 thing I beg of you is to not let acne ruin your relationships with your friends. I let acne affect every aspect of my life and socially withdrew, eventually losing every last friend. Now, I am truly alone. I have no one to really talk to. The relationships I formed while I'm at school (community college) are strictly academic
  16. I honestly don't care if I have acne. but the oil just makes everything worse and pretty much unbearable. Your face feels so disgusting. As the night progresses, it just keeps accumulating and looks even worse when you blot since they seep back through the pores and it looks like you have little droplets all over your face.
  17. What about if you have terrible bacne and wouldn't want to subject any human being to seeing such a horrific site?
  18. Just go out and have a good time. No offense, but unless your acne magically disappears, you're still going to have acne when you see her after this so just man up. Canceling because of your acne is the worse thing you can do.
  19. Its hard enough to attract others when you have acne, but to do it with oily skin and acne is just... sigh.. My personal experience is that its not hard to talk and make friends with the opposite sex, but there comes a point where looks do factor in, not matter how confident or great your personality is...
  20. Doesn't make a difference for me since I wash my face and then shave (I use my cleanser as a shaving gel).
  21. Can you buy Milk of Magnesia at the supermarket? (i.e. ralphs, vons, etc)
  22. nvm.. found some info on it http://www.cellex-cuk.com/pro_side/SEBO/sebo_txt.html http://www.dermadoctor.com/product.asp?AID...;productid=1460
