  1. I can refer you to The Laser Clinic. Jessica will take really good care of you there! They are located on Hwy 7 and Pine Valley. (near Hwy 400) They also have a web site as well.
  2. Thanks for the details...and yes please...keep me posted...or at the least I will be checking up on you once in a while. ) I noticed you're from Ontario, where in Ontario?...I'm from Toronto. I don't think I would call 60mg a low dose, but I think more of an average sized dose for your weight. I'm a bit reluctant to go on accutane b/c 2 of my friends went on it when they were younger and their IB was so bad that they didn't even want to leave the house...zits and cysts even in their ears! B
  3. Hey...I can't help to answer your question, but I also have mild acne and am thinking about accutane, so I am interested in your experience with it. Since your acne is mild, are you on low dose? What is your dosage per day and how much do you weigh?
  4. I would get a warm cloth, soaked in salt water, and apply it to the cyst for 15 minutes at a time... Once you feel it gets soft, I'd try poking it with a sterilized needle...and get the pus out. I know you're not supposed to pick or whatever, but I find that this is the best way to get rid of them. When you poke with a needle, skin damage is minimal b/c you're not squeezing the skin open and breaking it. That's the best advice I can give...worked for me many times.
  5. I'm wondering what the lowest, but effective dose is, where an IB could be avoided. Has anyone here has had a IB on 10mg/day?
  6. Has anyone taken Accutane and a course of antibiotics simultaneously in an attempt to reduce the IB? (I know its not advised to take any of the "cycline's") If so, what antibiotic did you use and do you think it reduced your IB?
  7. Last year, I broke out in the middle of my chest with about 20 or so hard lumps. I just thought they were cystic acne...b/c I also get one here and there on my chest. I went on minocin and they pretty much went way....but the red marks took a long time to subside. I still get the odd one here and there, but it's 80% better after the minocin.
  8. Anyone hear of Genesis Laser for treating acne scars? Any thoughts on this product?
  9. Hey all, I'm a 31 year old male, with acne for about 5 years. Currently, I have pretty oily skin, and the odd whitehead here and there on my beard area(currently I have maybe 3). No zits on my nose, upper cheeks or forehead. But the kicker is that I get the occasional cyst mainly on my beard area and neck (maybe 5 in the past year) a couple of them on my chest, and some zits on my scalp that I am currently taking prescription shampoo for. All this considering, I have a few questions regardi
