  1. Just posting this because I think it's helping my cystic acne. I was on the pill Yasmin and it was not helping and all the things my derm gave me were not helping my cystic acne! BUT-- for some reason I started taking my hubands vitamins Ecspecially for Men and noticed that my face was clearing up. I don't usually buy a multivitamin so I got into his and then read the ingredients--saw palmetto, stinging nettle, and pumpkin seed. All of these herbs I know are anti-androgens and are probably ad
  2. Does anyone know about the Pixel laser for the Phila area? Even the NJ area is okay? I am not finding it and thought I would check here for anyone to know. Please email me becuause I probably won't find your reply. thanks!
  3. I just wanted to post this for all to see. Hirudoid cream is made in Germany and you can get it online only from ebay or another phamacy that has it in New Zealand and will ship. Trial sizes can be bought on ebay for about 4 bucks. It works well with Retin-A underneath. It is really thick but you can rinse it off after gently rubbing it in. THIS IS THE BEST STUFF AND I HAVE TRIED IT ALL! (mederma stinks and the onion extract stuff burns in it.. If anyone has tried this stuff let me know.
  4. Anyone know of a derm here in Philly area that does this pixel laser? I cancelled my appt locally for an IPL (Intense Pulse laser). Someone wrote that it is good for pore reduction but didn't claim to have had the treatment himself. Then on another site ( I just went under IPL reviews and found someone who ended up with discolored skin.) They were very upset so I cancelled my appt. It was a cheap cost (350.00) but I decided I am not into anything that could end up ruining my skin.
  5. Can someone please clarify this green tea idea. I tend to stay away from green tea capsules due to the caffene. Also what is inulin 100mg as described in the capsule?
  6. Had chicken pox, have cystic acne. I believe cystic acne is a case of too much testosterone in both males and females-period. Why is it that the pill Yasmin has cured most women on here and so has spirolactone (testosterone reducer). It is a hormone imbalance. Most guys that get cystic type are thin and high strung. I am a woman and thin and high strung. Please read the research all over the web on hormonal acne. There's plenty of data and research. The prob is the derms are having problem
  7. Does anyone know if the doxycylcine interferes with Yasmin? I started Yasmin 3 days ago for acne (I am 50 and am not worried about getting pregnant!) . The derm today is giving me doxy as well. I hope both will work.
  8. No--I am not talking about BP. (Why does everyone get excited about this ridiculous and useless ingredient?) I am talking about the Ketoconazale contained ONLY in Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo. I don't know how to post links but look up Skin Therapy Letter.com and androgen blockerswithin that site. If BP is working for you than you don't have much of a problem. Serious acne sufferers need a real cure and very few derms are taking this seriously. If you get hives, they don't treat it with a wash
  9. I an new to this myself. If you dig deeper into this website, most are talking about spirolactone which is a testosterone reducer but prescibed mainly as a diuretic for high blood pressure. I think "Alderone"is the acutual trade name. There are others. Older men complain about no sex drive because of it. Now I know why. Now, how to get a derm to prescibe it is the key and I have posted a request for people who know of one in Phila. since my derm is a backward moron. If you guys are worried a

  11. Hi P n C--thanks for the response. I have an appt on Monday with the ob/gyn and will ask for Diane/35. I had tried Yasmin but threw it away after it made me fat in less than a week. Yasmin also has the spirolactone. Which one is the best do you know? Anyway--back to the sticky cell problem. Real acne can't be a matter of sticky cells. It's what is causing the skin not to function properly to begin with. Sticky cells are the symptom not the cause. I am truly trying to get to the root caus
  12. Hi-- I am a 30 year acne sufferer. I think I have something worth saying and I will post it everywhere. After 30 years i believe this is a hormonal disease that affects the skin-- the skin is an actual body organ and needs to be addressed as such. Hence-this organ is malfunctioning and NO ONE can tell me that it is a cleansing and bacteria problem. I am going thru menopause and since my estrogen is dropping, the male hormone is dominating and my acne is worse than when I was 20. I am searchin
  13. Newsflash for body acne sufferers. I just read on a body- builder web --(anabolic enhancers cause agne in body builders ) that the ingredient in NIZORAL dandruff shampoo called ketoconazole shuts down the testosterone byproduct (I forget what it's called) that causes follicles to have too much oil RESULTING---bacteria! I believe this is the ROOT cause of acne (androgens converting to testosterone then to the final bad by-product that causes acne. I bought some yesterday found it at Walgreens
  14. Help-- I just read reviews on spirolactone am wondering who in Phila would presribe it. My lazer cosmetic doctor, my regular derm and my gynocologist know nothing about this. I am fifty and need some help with ongoing cystic acne that never ends. As posted, I will try the Aleve and maybe Yasmin (the Pill) again although I tried it before and it made me fat in a week (huge saddlebags I never had before!). Maybe, I should have stayed on it ( they gave it to me for menstrual cramps and said it'
