  1. I have read some of the postings on this med. My fam doc thinks I have PCOS (why couldn't they have figured this out when I was younger? . Hormonal Acne, Hair on sides of my face, sudden unexplained weight gain in my mid section, blood tests were not all normal. I have what one would call mild...and very rarely moderate acne. I have pretty much taken everthing but refuse to take accutane. Now I am on month2 of mino...if it doesn't work I have to go the my derm. Now what have your side e
  2. Yes, the appointment is covered by OHIP. You do have to get a referral to one from your family doctor.
  3. Wow, it is so nice to know that I am not the only one. I am 27 and have had acne since I was 11....the last time I remember having clear skin was when I was 16. I had the chicken pox....all my acne went away during that time. I have taken everything except Accutane, which I always refused to take. I too have taken the dreaded Diane 35 about 5-6 years ago....it did nothing for me except KILL my sex drive. I currently have very mild acne..I get the small odd tiny whitehead every few days or s
  4. Thanks for the replies. Alpha Hydrox is not available in Canada. I will have to buy mine from drugstore.com.
  5. I keep reading about the gel, All I can find is the cream, lotion, and and oil free formula? Anyone have a pic of this? I have to buy this stuff on-line cause I live in Canada, so I want to make sure I am getting the right stuff. Also Do you think that using the Pro Activ toner would be a pro or con? I have 2 bottles of it here, it has no alcohol. Thanks.
  6. What do BP and SA do? I only use BP maybe once or twice a month when I get a whitehead and it goes away. What does SA do? Also is there anyting else that BP does? Okay now the cleanser debate. I love my unscented Spectro Jel the prob is that it doesn't remove make-up well. So I am using Vichy Normaderm cleansing gel when I get home from work and Spectro Jel in the morning. Do you think that is okay? If not then can you recommend a great clenser that removes make-up well, is fr
  7. Yeah I agree with you Dingbat. I had friends that went on Accutane and it was not pretty at all. There faces were really BAD! I don't have any of those big red types of pimples. Just a few blackheads on the nose, A few.. 3 whiteheads on the jaw line and some scarring in the cheeks. I don't think that it warrants me going on Accutane. I do remember going on tetracycline when I was 14 and then again at 19. I do remember Differin and of course Diane 35 and Ortho-Tricyclen. But back then I
  8. My family dr wants me to go to derm and get Accutane. The prob is that I have mild acne with some scarring. She seems to think it's bad only cause of my age-26. I told her you never saw me when I was younger. I do remember taking Tetracycline as a teen. But at the point in my life it never did anything. SO I am curious as to what is the most effective acne med next to Accuatne is. Thx
