    Depressed without Accutane

    bump
  2. I took oratane back in OCT 7 2016 up until JULY 7 2017, so for 9 months at 40mg/day. Before that I tried everything OTC from drugstore to highend, and prescriptions ever since I was 13 such as clindatech, epiduo, duac gel and 4 rounds of antibiotic minomycin. I also went vegan for 2 years, to improve my skin, however that was useless. I’m 16 yrs old and female. BACKSTORY - (YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ THIS) This was when i was 13/14/15 years old - Before going on oratane, I remember previously st

    Pimples returning after accutane

    I put bio oil on my face and overnight I woke up with a new spot on my nose, and i NEVER EVER get pimples on my nose area. My nose has alway been crystal clear Thank god it didn't break me out in other areas, now im praying that witch hazel can clear that tiny unappealing bump on the right side of my nose quickly. Im never going to put it near my face ever again! And yes witch hazel is a god sent product, im already seeing improvement within like 3 days im so glad!! ive never tried acne.org's

    NEVER apply this to your face!

    NEVER apply this to your face!

    I would give bio oil 0 stars if i could. I applied this to my face and it broke me out on my nose - a place where i NEVER EVER get pimples! I now have an aggravating spot, it doesnt hurt or have a head, but the spot does feel bumpy. I had clear skin with no active spots up until i put this trash on my face, woke up the next morning with a SPOT on the right side of my nose! I seem fussy but i'll be using this up on my body, never on my face again. When i looked at the ingredients i was skeptic as

    my ride or die

    epiduo dries out pimples and if you breakout epiduo is there to save the day. However after using this epiduo for months and months and years and years relying on it, it irritated my skin and made specific places where i applied the epiduo very red, sensitive and irritated (maybe because i did not apply a pea size amount). HOWEVER, i still think this is one of the best topical pimple treatments out there, and definitely by far the best one ive tried out of duac, clindamycin toner, etc.

    Dont even bother with it

    Dont even bother with it

    i went on minomycin around 3 times or so and it only cleared my teenage pimples up the first time, the 2nd and 3rd it didn't improve my skin and was an utter waste of time. not sure why multiple doctors gave me this same antibiotic 100mg a day, which was useless time after time. I was so faithful and truly believed that the minomycin would cure my acne but i was wrong. i would give it 0 stars if i could.
  7. duac discontinued

    Duac where i'm from Australia is discontinued and many chemists did not stock it no more, however I was eager to try it out thus my dad found a chemist who had one tube left for sale at the price of roughly around $45. The pharmacist said the tube would only last for a month then have to be thrown out because it would be overdue. I used this gel for a month, when i first started to use it on my teenage pimples it did not irritate my skin however around the 5th time i put it on my face and chest

    bang for your buck!

    love this mask and is just as good and if not better than the higher end masks i've tried (glam glow supermud, glam glow youthmud). my sister recommended this mask and it is amazing at pulling out impurities and giving your skin a pick me up! I would've given it 5 stars if only it didnt make my skin red for hours after using it.

    Pimples returning after accutane

    me too i apply spf if i do go out, which isn't often, but i still have extremely red cheeks. The redness isn't from my scarring/blemishes but its just irritation and im not sure why? When i wake up my skin is relatively calmed and only slightly red on my cheeks, however throughout the day my cheeks tend to get redder and redder. my face is usually warm/hot although it is winter in Australia so i think it is hot because of stress maybe? also when i get out of the shower my red cheeks are at
  10. I just finished my course of accutane, im 16 yrs old and i took 20/mg for the 1st month and 40/mg the next 8 months, i had the typical teenage oily skin, clogged and pimples on my chin + cheek area, it wasn't severe, and my other GP (i have 2 GPS) disagreed with my decision to go on accutane, but it got to the point where i stopped going to school, couldnt look people in the eye, didnt look at myself in the mirror, avoided friends/family and its a long story to explain. friends/family commentate
  11. you literally have 11/10 skin, but if youre that worried then maybe see a facialist and what they have to offer.

    Pimples returning after accutane

    i hope that the bumps aren't reoccurring and they clear up in a few days! i've got the exact same issue; hyperpigmentation worsening on my cheek area and 1-2 bumps/tiny spots on my left, however my skin is still very smooth and theres no texture. Do you apply a SPF on a daily basis? I rarely go outdoors in the sun but my cheeks are still so red

    Pimples returning after accutane

    Thank you! im not quite sure why thats happening, but i went on 20MG a day for the first month and then for the next 8 months i was on 40mg. I think you should listen to what your dermatologist recommends because ultimately they know whats best. I guess you should stay faithful, unless you have major side effects? Personally, accutane took a while for it to work on me and the results were slow BUT gradual. At my 1st-2nd month my skin was worse than what I had begun with, and i doubted the drug
  14. im 16 yrs old and recently just finished my 9 month course of oratane (the australian accutane or whatever) 40mg/day! In australia we dont get higher dosages in a shorter period of time, or at least thats what my derm put me on cause of my weight, etc. im so grateful for this drug, i am finally able to look people in the eye, go to school, socialise and look at myself in the mirror. accutane is actually god sent & worked miracles on my mild acne. When i started accutane i never had terrible
