  1. Well its naerly a year to the month that I started to get acne on my face. Initally it was very very very mild, but I kind of knew my skin was changing as my shoulders laready had a bit of acne.

    So I started by treating my mild acne with clearsil products but as my acne gre worse it became clear I would need something stronger. So I went to the doctor and got Pan Oxyl 2.5% Aquagel, by now my acne was starting to worsen and I didnt really give the Aqualgel time to work before I had switched to Dans Regimen. Dans regimen did not work for me so I switched back to Aquagel 2.5% and slowly my acne was worsening still but the Aquagel was helping.

    My next step was to get Doxycycline antibiotics from the doctor as my acne on both my back and face had become quite severe. This was late last year, probably December. I am on 100mg per day.

    Febuary was my all time worse for acne, I had a massive bad breakout on my face but carried on with my treatment of both 100mg per day antibiotics and 2.5% Aquagel. Then my sking began to slowly improve but kind of got to a state and stayed there ( at this point I was not treating my Bacne )

    So then I told my doctor I wanted to get a higher strength BP, So I was given Pan Oxyl Alcohol based Acnegel 5% to try.......WOW WOW WOW. I have been on this stuff for about 5 weeks and Im acne free with the red marks nearly all gone. I went to see a Dermatologist and they asked why I was even there!!! ( I had arranged the appointment 3 month earlier, but had to wait all that time to see them, by which time I had cleared up!!!! )

    So this is my regimen, I only wish I had used the Acnegel 5% earlier!!!:

    Wash face with Simple ( colour free etc ) soap in a bath and soak skin in the hot water

    Get out and pat face dry

    Wait 15 mins

    Apply Acnegel 5%

    Now Im going to start treating my back which is still quite bad, but has improved with the antibiotics. I will treat my back with Head and Shoulders first, then if that doesnt work a 10% Acnegel, as the skin is thicker on my back!

    Go on, give Acnegel 5% a go. And try and get on antibiotics.

  2. Ok, heres what happened since I got my first 2 bad spots ever just 2 months ago:

    1 tried to clear them with clearasil - didnt work

    2 went to doctor got pan oxyl bp 2.5%

    3 it made my face very flakey but did sort of clear my spots up

    4 found the regime and tried to do it using my bp - really bad flaking

    5 stopped any treatment for around a week to allow skin to heal - no spots just bit red

    6 got dan kerns regimen stuff - used full finger from start ( as I had been using bp already for 4 weeks )and no flaking with moisurizer

    7 got a small spot again it cleared up quickly - thought all was going well

    8 last week on regimen ( 2 weeks into regimen ) 3 big spots appeared after a shave and bad redening- only one cleared

    9 tried treating them with the regimen but suddenly things got worse and I have maybe 7 spots next to my mouth and under my chin and it feels like more are going to come!!!

    10 went to doctor and got antibiotics for my acne - nearly a week on them now

    11 went off regime for 3 days and used pan oxyl bp, 2 spots cleared a little

    12 went back on regimen today as pan oxyl is making my skin flakey already!

    Ok now I need help, Is the regimen causing the spots or would they have happened even if I wasnt doing any treatment, is it because I'm 17 and these spots are just going to happen. It does feel as if the regimen caused this big breakout as I have never had spots like this, so please help me Dan or anybody else, I'm feeling quite low at the moment. Oh and another thing worth mentioning is my gland near my breakout ( lymph gland ) is swollen and I have just had the flu and still feel very tired and have much less energy Rupert

  3. I have decided to leave the regime until I get all Dans things, I will use my BP in a smaller dose but only once per day. I only have one spot now but some red marks under the skin, do you think these will turn into spots or are they there because of the regime? I have washed all the moisturizer off my face. My skin is really dry and flakey now but I'm going to let it heal before I apply anymore BP. Luke

  4. Hi Brandy, my moisturizer has Jojoba in it. Here are the ingredients:

    Water, Myristyl Alcohol, Mineral Oil, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat., Stearic Acid, Petrolatum, Myristyl Myristate, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Dimethicone, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Phenoxyethanol, Lanolin Alcohol, Fragrance, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Cetyl Phosphate, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben

    I got this from a website, mine is slightly different as I bought mine in France, Luke

    So what about the bumpyness that has just happened? Luke

  5. Ok, about a month ago I decided to go the the doctor about my acne ( I'm 17 and my acne is very minimal just a few around my mouth and occasionally some others ). The doctor gave me Pan Oxyl Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%. I used the entire tube and applied it once every evening I didnt notice much change but I had to stop for a fewd ays because it was making my skin really flakey. About a week ago I discovered this website and decide to use my Pan Oxyl to follow the regime. I now have a second tub and have followd the regime for the past 5/6 days. I clean my face with a mild soap, wait a while, apply a finger legths bp ( use a full finger because I have already done a month of it ) then moisturize with Nivea. After I wash I can see old red marks under the skin where old spots have been, but when my face settles with the bp and moisurizer my face looks alot better with only some red marks. But today has been different, my face has been really flakey, itchy and bumpy. A few minutes ago I washed all the bp off my face. Earlier to day I orderd Dans bp and moisurizer but they will take 1-3 weeks to arrive and with the postal strike here in the UK it may take longer. I just want to know if my symptoms are normal? thanks for your help, Luke
