  1. I'm had two treatments worth of PDT with the Levulan treatment. I was told my skin would get significantly better after about two treatments...so far though, it's been worse than ever before. It's extremely severe. Is this normal? Does it get worse before it gets better? I've experienced increased oiliness in the face overall as well.
  2. I intend on asking my dermatologist and gyneacologist, but I'd like to hear this information from all around. Will implanon (a progestin-only implant) lose effectiveness when combined with Accutane?
  3. I've tried a bunch of prescriptions from various dermatologists, as well as everything you could ever buy off the shelf. At this point I'm inclined to believe that anything that has ever ''seemed'' to work for me temporarily has either been psychosomatic, or complete coincidence, as it never continues to work in the long term. I've never tried what you mentioned. Terrified of trying Accutane...I wish there was some other way.
  4. It wasn't intentional, but I was at a picnic social, and a friend of mine who I hadn't seen in a while came up to me, looked at me a minute and asked, ''Woah! Did you get bitten by something? You need to check your face in the mirror...it looks like you're having a really bad reaction to something." Of course I turn to a friend next to me and ask him if he noticed anything strange, and his only response was (and he wasn't trying to be cruel either), "It doesn't look any worse than usual." But
  5. I've never really vented to anyone about my acne before. I've always been too embarrassed to even mention it to anyone. I've struggled with severe acne for most of my life. Painful cysts, nodules, random swelling. I've got pits in my face where the cysts keep coming back, hard bumps underneath my skin where they never went away. The whole one side of my face is covered in dark red bumps and scars. I get acne around my LIPS and it won't go away. I dread leaving the house. I can't look my mate in
  6. Literally the second that I heard that caffiene may be the cause of my acne, I threw out the cappuchino I had been drinking at that moment and haven't touched coffee or soda in the three weeks since. My face ALMOST seemed to clear up at first, but by the end of the week, I was breaking out worse than ever before. I now have a nasty cyst under my left eye, and on my shoulder (I've NEVER had cysts on my shoulders before, hadn't had any cysts at all in months), I even have a pimple between my finge
