  1. Ok first of all, I have had moderate acne since about 15, Ive tried pretty much everything under the sun except accutane. This includes benzoyl peroxide, minocycline,. doxycycline, differin, neo medrol, and many other acne topicals. I stumbled upon this website, which is more of a book really, www.freeacnebook.com and at first after reading it I was skeptical but after a while of using creams and stuff which inevitably either make ance worse or make me depend on pharmaceuticals i gave this a sh
  2. hey thanks alot for your reply it was very helpful, yah I think i might as well finish the 6 weeks since ive already taken two days but i will try to get some of those probitics your talking about, do they normally sell them at regualr drug stores? also are there any other supplements that are helpful for acne?
  3. sorry dude but im not gona lie to my doctor and try to push him to put me on accutane. I would only take that as a very last option and even then i dont think i would. I mean how can you advise me not to take antibiotics bc they dont solve the root of the problem and then tellme to go on accutane???? Accutane is the closest thing you are going to get as a cure for acne, prescription wise. If you have tried antibiotics for 3 years and not had success, then logically, to me it just seems like

I mean how can you advise me not to take antibiotics bc they dont solve the root of the problem and then tellme to go on accutane???? To anyone else do you guys think its smart to continue to take these antibiotics (ive only taken one so far) or just stop it. also are there any harmful effects from just taking it for a cou
  5. okay so just to get this straight, you would recommoned taking it for like a week or until it clears me up then getting off of it? Also when im stopping it should i stop it right away? or should i be doing something to slowly ween myself off of it?
  6. also i just started working out and im wondering if antibiotics kill proteins that allow you to build muscles?
  7. Hey Everyone, So basically I have moderate - severe acne and Ive had it for years. Ive been using minocycline on and off for maybe 3 years for acne. I just went to a dermatologist and he prescribed me differin xp, neo medrol and doxycycline 100 mg Personally I told him that ive tried antibiotics over years and they didnt work, and he still insisted i take them so ive got a 6 week dose of 100 mg doxycycline (one per day) with 3 repeats I just took the first one today and I didnt feel bad ph
  8. ok. Im using dove sensitive skin cleanser right now but i might go back to cetaphil, i think partly the reason its so dry is just cuz of winter. also ill try waiting 30 mins after and before thanks guys
  9. while im using differin my skin becomes SOO DRY like unbeleiveably dry after i use my cleanser, then i put differin on then wait 30 mins then moisturize. my question is this normal to be so unbeleibably dry? i mean after cleansing my skin is dry to the point where my whole face feels like its a mask

  11. Hey im using differin currently and i think its going pretty well, however every morning i wake up and i have a ton of dry skin flakes all over my face my question is, what is a good method or product to use to exfoliate my skin while im using differin?? if you guys could help me out with this it would be MUCH apreciated by the way i dont know if it changes anything but i have sensitive skin thanks all
  12. hey thanks alot for the quick answers guys!! I was also wondering, how do you apply differin? i mean like does it go all over the face or only affected areas, or is it more of a spot treatment? Thanks alot by the way!
  13. Hey, I just saw a dermatologist and he very quickly prescribed me differin and minocin my question is I think he told me to apply the differin twice a day, however i was wondering would it be a good idea to just test it out once a day at first in case it might have an adverse effect? or is it a better idea to start off using it twice a day from the get go? Ive heard a couple posts saying it can be bad for the skin which is why im hesitant one more thing, should i start taking the minocin pi
  14. Dont go on medication for that!! my advice just go in a sauna for an hour then take a shower
