  3. Hi, Okay well here is the history. I had pretty good skin in high school then...BAM... im 19, and acne everywhere, so i went on tane (i had been on other things before). Anyway, I started September 2008, I had a hugeee IB by the way, only for a week or so though, then everything was getting better, but not 100%. I'am now on my 5th month and yes, my skin is wayyy better, minus the red marks, barf. But the thing is, all of my redmarks are on my cheeks, where i NEVER got acne before, ever. So that
  4. Sooo...i just found this on here: Q: What can I do to hasten the fading of PIH?
