  1. ive been taking one lymacycline tablet a day, and using very small amount of retin-a gel. i have been washing when necessary (2 times a day usually) with "simple" non perfumed/ fragranced soap. i have noticed i am clearing up quite drastically. I've been using this stuff since the 27th of December 2007. i haven't had any breakouts of pimples except aybe like 4 on my forehead, and 1 on my cheek. is this normal? or can i expect to be hit by a hurricane in the next few weeks? and does everyone suf
  2. benzoyl peroxide ruined my skin. mainly because i didnt have a clue about the danger of using a lot (this site says to use a lot aswell which is stupid). now that im on retin a and lymacycline 500mg my skin is looking mint comparedto before.
  3. i have been on a regimen for the last 2 weeks consisting of basically just dipping my face in water with a few drops of tea tree oil added into it . followed by aspirin masks on my cheeks at night. i have noticed it has stopped irritation etc and i havent really had any new pimples. but i have noticed there seems to be this soft whitish substance seeping out of the pores. what is this stuff and how do you get rid of it. also what do you make of my regimen, it seems to be working ok but do
  4. anyone here get those annoying spots that only seem to form on the cheeks, they are a reasonable size, and form a small whitehead at the top. so you leave the whitehead cos you arent supposed to pick it. this then scabs over. so you think this means your skin will heal and you may or may not be left with a red mark? wrong, what actually happens is it scabs over then you get a lovely redmark with a whitehead forming inside the actual scab!. this goes on in a cycle. today i realized my skin
  5. this is exactly wht i have but on both sides. how long before it went back to normal those of you who have suffered this? i believe its cos of irritation. so possibly stopping all your products for awhile may help.
  6. well my skin wasnt even that bad before i started 5% bp, 4 months on its ruddy shit. i never had spots on my cheeks and now its a plague and the worst area of my face. i put that down to the bp i would stop using it for a few days then gradually return by using a smaller percentage or something.
  7. No need to read to deep into it- i just meant my acne is more aggravated than his, not that his life is worse than mine and i was using him as an example as i havent seen any other threads about that type of spot.
  8. I was browsing the gallery's and noticed this dude who has really similar skin to mine. red stretched bumpy red skin marks. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php...i&img=18786 im visiting a derm within 2 weeks i was wondering is there anyway of bringing that sort of inflammation down in the mean time. mine is worse than his cos i have slightly more of them red marks im talking about and mines more inflamed. i have started washing my face less and usng no products as most things irritat

  10. well i had really irritated skin, which i suppose was the main problem behind my crazy acne. so basically what i did was drink shit loads of ribena and green tea. Also i had zinc tablets, green tea extract tablets (containing a lot of vitamin c and a and other good stuff), and cod liver oil & evening primrose oil joint health capsules. for cleanser i was using clearasil ultra which i have now changed t cetaphil sensitive wash. I also used dalacin t for spot treatment. and as for general issu
  11. yeah but i didnt even have that severe acne, then after doing this with benzoyl peroxide (even for short periods to begin with) i noticed it got worse and worse, so i dont even go there. ive tried cutting out all products for awhile then i eventually decided i should use some form of cleanser as my skin was getting far too oily and i was getting blackheads where ive never had them, it wasnt getting cleaned with just water. i think my best option is to try and get prescirbed a stronger anti bioti
  12. http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b276/transplants125/oh.jpg ive got these recurrent spots tht keep appearing on my cheeks, they are very red and bumpy and never seem to go, or just when they are fading another one appears in the same place, this has been happening for quite a few months now. AND THEY NEVER GO!! ive been to a dcotor several times and all they prescribe is bp, which ive stopped using as this jus irritates my skin. i also was on erythomycin which did nothing. at the moment im
  13. well i tried tht awhile a go and it just irritated my skin, either way im just washing my face then getting a damp cotton wool and applying the TTO to it and pressing it against my face for a bit. seems to be doing the trick and its fading a bit but not sure if this is a good method : /
  14. hi, since my last topic i posted my skin has got a bit less inflamed as i stopped using all the product. im now just using clearasil ultra deep pore wash (as this seemed to work to a mild degree awhile ago) and dabbing a bit of tea tree oil on. anyway i have noticed i always have these red small cluster of bumps that take forever to go. will 100% tea tree oil work (or a more diluted version). my skin is starting to clear up a bit but still getting big red bumps on forehead, just below my
  15. thanks for your help everybody, the cleansing wipes contain "zinc pca" and a natural antibacterial aand it is 100% oil and alchol free. I havent used any products on my face in the last few days or a flannel the only wash i have been using is "simple facial wash gel with viatmin b5" which is again alchol free. ATM my skin is much the same, the thing i hate most is on the cheeks as i find this really noticable and most stubborn, its all very red and i can feel a few bumps- any way of calming t
  16. well recently my skin has got worse than ever before, my current regimen consists of using "simple" exfoliating wash, then a simple pil balancing cleansing wipe (to tone) followed by simple oil balancing moisturizer. I also started using a flannel when i get washed to help exfoliate. i have noticed my skin is quite bumpy and goes through periods where it is smooth but then i break out really bad. i have some photos aswell. BTW i have also used benzoyl peroxide in the past and i think its t
  17. What products are best to remove red marks left after acne. Would any one recommend Bio Oil. Here are a couple of photos. I am currently taking 2 oxytetracycline tablets morning and night, Using Benzoyl Peroxide 5% day and night, And using Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer during the day. My skin is usually really dry, and I have a lot of red marks off where i had acne. Thanks in advance
