  1. Hi! My teenage daughter is developing a cyst on her face. As I have severe acne scars, I want to do everything I can to treat this early and limit scaring for her. We are out of the country and do not know anyone local so I will need to find a sort of walk-in clinic. What kind of treatment should I request/hope for? Thank you for your help!
  2. Wow! Great catch BA and Obi! It's great you were able to see there was a problem and advise getting medical attention ASAP.
  3. Some have English subtitles.
  4. I am so sorry you are suffering. It's really hard to deal with the scars acne leaves behind. Know that you are not alone. I really think acne scars require a dual approach -- physical treatment and emotional treatment. You're on the right track by addressing both issues and it sound like you are doing great things for your body with exercising, drinking water, avoiding alcohol and smoking. Please make sure you see this thread. @beautifulambition's post on March 18 is one of the best on
  5. Do you have any tips/hints for making indented scars less noticeable in photos (angle, lighting, etc.)? What works for you?
  6. I'm in the EU and can't get this without a prescription. When I'm in the US, I usually pick up a tube of Neosporin and bring it back with me.
  7. No personal experience or recommendation, but I saw these two reviews on realself: https://www.realself.com/review/plano-tx-scars-treatment-subcision-suction-method https://www.realself.com/review/dallas-tx-acne-scars-treatment-subcision-treatment-dr-burns
  8. This product contains olive oil, stearic acid, and cetearyl alcohol. I've been afraid to use it. I'm glad it works for you.
  9. AM: face wash (La Roche-Posay Toleraine) Hyaluronic Acid (Eucerin) moisturizer (La Roche-Posay Toleraine) - if needed sunscreen (La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL) makeup (foundation - Vichy Dermablend) PM: face wash (La Roche-Posay Toleraine) moisturizer (La Roche-Posay Toleraine) When stronger moisture is needed - Cicaplast Baume B5 from La Roche-Posay Tretinoin Gel 3 X/ week Glyco-A once a week When needed for breakouts Benzyl Peroxide is added to routine.
  10. This is a good idea if you can only get .05%. Avita and Renova are other brands that tretinoin is sold under in some parts of Europe. Don't forget the sunscreen. : )
  11. How is it looking now that the swelling must have gone down? Have you had additional treatments?
