  1. I don't think there would be an interaction. I don't use salicylic acid myself, but I use BP while being on Prozac. Your pharmacist or doctor would be the best person to ask though.
  2. BP makes your skin more sensitive to the sun (upping your risk of a sunburn) so whatever you do, wear SPF 50 and re-apply regularly! Sunbathing is so bad for your skin regardless..if you want the look of tanned skin, getting a spray tan or using a self-applying tanner is the way to go. Not worth the risk of skin cancer
  3. Yes, I've found changing my pillow case every 2 days (I flip it over every other night) has definitely helped my skin
  4. I don't think you need to worry. There's a possibility it COULD have spread the bacteria, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just keep doing your cleansing routine.
  5. Cystic acne is THE WORST. I have found some relief from using Renee Rouleau's anti-cyst serum.
  6. I'm not that careful....I figure if it's already there, the damage is already done. I don't think using the CPAP machine would cause scarring. I'd definitely run that by your doctor, since you do need a CPAP machine to breathe properly. What I would do is just make sure you disinfect/clean the machine where it touches your face (Same idea as cleaning linens that come into contact with your face, etc)
  7. That makes me so happy to hear!! It's such amazing stuff!
  8. Yup, it'll be fine. If the consistency is off, or it looks weird, I would contact the company to see if you can get a replacement, but it should be fine!
  9. Ah gotcha. The Rodan and Fields one is sold online only, but the Eucerin one should be.
  10. If you only notice it when you eat certain foods, it could be a sensitivity or allergy? You should talk to a doctor and see if you could look in to it further.
  11. I wouldn't say "cure", since I still have to treat it daily to keep my cystic acne away...but what has gotten my cystic acne to go away and allow me to have clear skin (using the regimen twice a day, of course) is Unblemish (made by Rodan and Fields). I was hesitant, since I had no luck with the acne.org products, but I only agreed to try it since it had a 60 day money back guarantee. Never thought anything topical would work for me, but I have clear skin now and I'm so thankful. (Thankful I
  12. 100% agree! The cause is so specific to some people, that what works for one person may aggravate another's acne. It's SO hard. Like Karen mentioned above, maybe your dose is a bit too low? See what your doctor thinks...I hope you figure out what works best for you soon! And if you ever need to chat, I'm here.
  13. Would you consider trying the birth control pill to see if it helps your acne? This helped my cystic acne MILDLY.....wasn't a cure, but it may be worth looking in to. Let us know how your dermatologist appointment goes! I'm curious to see what they recommend for you. Hang in there!
  14. Hey there! First off, totally agree with your username, lol. Acne DOES suck. I'm sorry you're having such a hard time finding something that works for you. Where do you currently live? Reason I ask is, the regimen I use is unfortunately only currently sold in the states, Canada and Australia at the moment. It was my last ditch effort before I was going to get my doctor to prescribe me antibiotics - Accutane was a huge no for me...the side effects just weren't worth it to me; acne seemed like t
