  1. I just finished my accutane course this past week I have to say im extremely happy at my results. I get maybe 1 pimple a week right now. The red marks on my cheeks have faded somewhat while on accutane but I'd like to start using acv topically to help speed it up. So my question is how long until I can use acv on my face again? Also how long until my skin isn't as sensitive to sunlight?
  2. When I told the nurse I took 1 in the morning and the other at night she looked at me surprised and the doctor said "Yeah thats ok to do". Almost as if they were expecting me to take both at the same time. When you say 2-3 cups do you mean measuring cups or glasses?
  3. My derm has me on one 40mg pill a day and two 40mg(so 80mg) pills every other day. On the days that I take 2 pills, should I take them both at the same time or one in the morning and one at night? I've previously been taking 1 in the morning and 1 at night but the thing is that I don't really have time for breakfast in the morning so I would just take the pill with a glass of milk. Is a glass of milk enough for the pill to be fully absorbed? I'm scared that the glass of milk wasn't enough o
  4. So I'm finally starting accutane tomorrow. Not sure of the dosage atm because my pharmacist didn't have any in stock, that's why im starting tomorrow and not today. My derm told me to take 1 pill the first day ,then 2 pills the next, then 1 pill again and so on and so forth. Is that common? I need the name of a good face wash and moisturizer, also if anyone has any good advice or tips.
  5. aww crap ive been taking zinc everyday maybe an hour after taking doxy :confused:
  6. Is it bad to take zinc while on doxy? Will it block the absorption of doxy?
  7. I just got back from the my first dermatologist appointment today. I was expecting to receive accutane but he wrote me up a prescription for retin a. He told me to get an aveeno bar soap for a cleanser and to use bp in the morning and this retin a every other night and to eventually increase it to every night. Thing is I'm kinda scared to start this new regimen because about 3 or so weeks ago i started using apple cider vinegar topically along with bp and lately my face has been great. Haven't
  8. Thanks for the advice. I guess I'll keep using exposed until September and see what happens from there. From watching Dan's videos I've seen that I wash my face too hard and for too long as well. I'll also try to use the right amount of BP so maybe these little changes will help my skin.
  9. I've been on exposed acne treatment for 4 weeks now. At about the 3 week mark I thought I was beginning to see improvements in my skin. Just recently over the past 3 days I've been breaking out. I'm starting to get worried that exposed might not be the treatment for me. Should I give exposed more time and see if my skin will start to clear up again or should I switch over to DKR?
