  1. OK. How do you exactly ice the cyst if it's not directly? What do you mean by buffering the skin?
  2. Damn, I feel stupid XD Umm, is there any recommendations on GOOD natural green tea I can buy at Walmart of something? Also, do you add honey to your's or is it straight up greeen tea. THANKS for the reply (:
  3. OK. So, I've been hearing that green tea's antioxidants are good for acne. So, I bought a bottle of this and I don't know if this is the green tea people are talking about. It says on the bottle "Contains natural AOX antioxidants" so is this good to drink for acne? This is the bottled version. Thanks. Plus, I'm on Accutane. 8 weeks in (:
  4. End of week 5: OK. My doctor said I should be breaking out a lot more on the second month. He was right -__- I broke out where my sideburns are. Like 3 cysts. I have two cysts right next to each other between my eyebrows. I have this BIG white head on my chin, on the right sid of my chin, and on the left side of my chin. And that's practically it. My oil glands on my nose is shrinking so that's good. I've been experiencing new things. My hands get dry easy, ecsema, and my legs and arms are itch
  5. WOOT end of week 3! (: Updates: I started my Prednisone last Tuesday. It's helping out ALOT. I'm on 10 mg a day for 2 weeks then 5 mg a day for 2 weeks. Too much Prednisone will cause more acne. But yeah, my face is clearing up! My big cyst is gone and all that is left is like 5 medium sized pimples and 4 small pimples. YAY. I can feel some little bumps though. The Prednisone hella works. I'm breaking out on my chest and back just a little. Probably 4-5 pimples each side? Or less. Haven't had a
  6. Hey, I finally reached 1 week on accutane, maybe a couple of days earlier than you. COOL! I'm also taking 80 mg a day. I weigh about 145 lbs. Didn't at first you thought the dosage was a little too much? I was going to ask my derm about that but i read that the higher the dosage the more likely the acne wouldn't come back. I was also on differin .3%, and it helped just a little. Nothing dramatic. When i first started accutane, my acne was okay, a few cyst here and there but they were going away
  7. Thanks for the replies! I never knew people would actually read my stuff. No one does. Hahah. Yeah, I'm going to use Prednisone for a month to calm my initial breakout. It's a steroid that worked for me when I was on Differin. UPDATE! End of Week 2: I finally got bloody noses. WOOOT. Jk. But I got 2 during the week. I broke out crazily now. My cheeks are full of it. like at least 9 per cheek. And I have about 5 cysts still. Only good thing about my pimples is that they are small. I've bveen ge
  8. So, Differin .3% kinda effed up my skin. 6 months of Differin -_- All it did was scar up my skin. SO, I decided to go on Accutane. I was scared at first but I have to face it. Tune in (: I'll be updating weekly. If you have anything to ask me, feel free to message me. I'll answer ALL of your questions (: P.S: Reply for advice and to give me a heads up on what might happen to me. HAHA. Regimen (Simple): 1. Amnesteem (isotretinoin) (80 mg a day) 2. Cetaphil Gentle Wash 3. Cetaphil Moisturizing L
  9. COOL I'll probably go with Accutane. Generic? Also, I'm about 130 lbs, male. What dosage do you think I should get? Differin already made my acne surface ALOT. It ruined my face. But now, I have mild acne. Just scars and redmarks and uneven skin tone. So, I don't know if Accutane will make my acne surface again even though Differin has been doing its job. ]asfhldasfjfdl;.
  10. OK. So I visited my derm today, (: FTW. Anyways, I've been on Differin for about 6 months now. Probably a few little pimples here and there. That's it. But the only flaws one my face are: clogged pores on my nose, HELLA scarring, and uneven skin tone. Also some dryness but that's whatever. ANYWAYS, the derm said he doesn't really like the results. He wants my face to become more clear like my hand. So he gave me 2 options: Accutane or Laser (2500+ dollars). I was so scared. I don't know what to

  13. Ehh, my derm said it's going to fade. I got these scars on week 8. I'm on week 14 and it's still not gone. He told me to stay on if for 12 more weeks so I will. He said it will fade it. It just takes time. 4 weeks you've been on it. Be ready for week 7-10. Don't be discouraged though. Stick to it. My acne is going away. All I have is marks. And I could treat that easily later.
