  1. I did 500mg twice a day and it helped. It was only after I went to 2000mg a day that it cleared up. I was also using AHA wipes 3x a day(morning, after lunch, and before bed) that I cleared up.
  2. I was prescribed Atopiclair for 2 dry patches under my eyes on my cheeks. I could not find it it was non comedogenic as the area I am using it on is prone to clogged pores. Has anyone used this product before and what was your experience?
  3. I get that feeling on my tongue after eating bananas. Pineapples give me little zits behind my ears. Odd.
  4. I cut candy/cake/sweets out of my diet for a few months to see if it effected my oily skin. When I started eating them again I started to also get small papules on my temps and on my cheek about an inch below my temples even with my earlobe. When I cut sugary items out again they cleared up in about a week or so. I have tried this a few times. A few cupcakes or slice of cake will result in the papules in a 3 or 4 days. Anyone else have a reaction in this same area?
  5. I have been trying get rid of SD on my sideburn area & above the eyebrows for the past year. I have been hydrocortisone, 3 types of antibotics, and a number of things similar to hrdo. The last thing I was given was Elidel 1%. The Elidel was very effective and quick (about 3 days) in clearing away the crusting and red tingling feeling. But a few days after starting Elidel I had the worst breakout of acne on my chin below the lower lip, my neck(never have acne there before) and on my lower c

  7. I cut dairy out of my diet for about a year and a half and stopped getting small cysts all together. I would get them along my jaw line below the corners of my mouth. Always came up in the same spots. I also noticed this when ever I eat rice or bread I get small pustules under my lower lip. Always in the smae spots after eating the trigger food. When I stop eating those kinds of food I never get them. Anyone else notice them coming up in the same areas?
  8. I know excatly what you are trying to describe. I get small ones if I eat dairy or bread near the corners of my mouth and the center of my jaw. Seems to take about 5 days for the tenderness to go away then a week or two for the "bump" to go away and not have a raised area. The ones I had were pretty small and seems to be caused by a food allergy and have no puss. Stopped eating that stuff and they went away almost completly.
  9. I go the same breakouts near the lower corners of my mouth. Turned out it was caused by dairy and bread. Progress looks good so far.
  10. I am now just not going to eat any.
  11. I know bread(wheat or glutin) is a trigger for a lot of people on here. But where do you tand to get the breakout from it? I usually get it near the corner of my mouth just above the jawline.
  12. Even if you are careful when eating that could still be the cause. Try using those SA wipes around your mouth after eating.
  13. A lot of derms will just give out antibiotics and cream if it is not bad enough for Tane. Antibiotics will lessenthe serverity of hormonal acne but do not always 'cure' it. I did very well on a antibiotic called Amoxicillin(500mg 2x a day). If they offer antibiotics you could ask about getting that one. The 2 other types they gave me before either did not work well or made me feel sick. But the reaction are not the same for everyone.
  14. NONE around here have any. Online stock checker says 'Out of stock' at all locations that i could look up. Do you know if the place where you saw them would let me order them from there?
  15. By the pic you found I take it you have cyst like breakouts on your jaw line in the same places as the pic? Is so that could be caused my dairy products. I had a similar probelm and after cutting out all dairy(milk, ice cream, the like..) it went away. I have been doing this for about 1 1/2 years now and it has worked well. I tested it out by having a small milkshake about 6 months back and it gave me 2 small ones like that on both sides of my mouth along the jawline. I also found that for me
  16. I had the same thing. SA and exfolitation work.
  17. you bled?! from your stomach or something? shit Lys, that crazy! hope you are okay Bleeding in the stomach means she had bloody shits. Takes awhile for that damage to heal IIRC. +1 on the hope it got better part too.
  18. I am not. It never touches the outside of my mouth and I wipe my mouth and face with a SA wipe after eating stuff like that. (FWIW I never had any issue with the small whiteheads people always complain about getting around their lips after starting to do this about a year ago.) I know it was allergic b/c they usually never come to a head and just are tender bumps. I never got them from white rice before so I guess it's just the Orange Chicken sauce. Too bad that stuff is great. First time I
