  1. So I came to know that one of my friends has landed a $80.000/yr job just 1 month after graduating. And here I am, with more education, but scared to go even on interviews because of acne. I don't know what to do, but I am feeling insanely jealous. I am also currently pregnant with my 1st child, so can't take accutane until after weaning. I know accutane is my last hope because I have tried all the other topicals/antibiotics etc. I am 32, but have no confidence and people in their 20's are more
  2. 32/F and counting... Had it since I was 17 or so...
  3. I know the accutane brochure says it doesn't, but I read some disturbing posts here from people who took accutane and think they are now infertile because of it. http://www.prescriptiondrug-info.com/Discuss/Accutane-and-Infertility-205942_p2.htm
  4. So it seems those who suffer long term side effects are the ones whose liver could not deal with the dose of accutane and was not able to remove it. So this is the reason it seems they do liver testing during treatment, if your liver enzymes are too high, they take you off the drug as it is an indication that your liver will not able to deal with the drug and you will likely have long term side effects. Chico and others here, I am wondering if you all were tested for elevated liver enzymes duri
  5. Aww congrats on the new baby! and your skin looks wonderful! Did you have hormonal acne just on chin etc.? How do you know you had higher testosterone etc.? Did you have any symptoms of PCOS like excess body hair etc. ? I am still not sure what is causing my acne, but I don't think I have PCOS symptoms, but I do have very oily skin and I am acne prone all over my face.
  6. I plan to get pregnant soon and I am wondering if my acne will get better. I read on some health site that for some women their skin gets better due to increased estrogen while for some women it gets worse.
  7. I am 31 and suffered from acne since teenage and still haven't gone on accutane b/c I plan to get pregnant soon. But I feel I should have done it in my early 20's itself. But everyone in my family kept telling me I was going to grow out of it...but it hasn't happened yet...lol.
  8. Courtney, I do the same things...I am getting married in 2 months and I have tried all kinds of things, and my face is still not clear. My fiance has been so understanding, and I drive him crazy talking about my acne all the time. But it is on my mind all the time and I don't know what to do. Its too late for me to take accutane also now and be clear for the wedding. Well I just have come to terms that most likely I am not going to have perfect, flawless skin. I am using topicals and it has made
  9. Yeah I hear ya. Im 25. Adult acne is a completely different ball game. Whoops totally replied to the wrong post. Meant to reply to Facne I agree. Even though acne bothered me a bit till I was 25 but it has devastated me after that and I am 31 now. I believe I am not getting job because of acne as well. I was offered accutane at 26 but I was so afraid of the side effects, so never took it. But I think I am ready now, especially now that I have lost hope of ever öutgrowing this disease

  11. Does DUAC cause any balling up under makeup since it contains BP?
  12. I have started using BP during the day too under makeup. I am using Benzac W 5% but I find it causes some balling when I apply moisturizer on top of it and mineral powder. Any recommendations?
  13. I have been using BP during the day too since April 20, under makeup of course. I find I am getting a little balling because of that. Any recommendations for BP cream which doesn't do that? I am currently using Benzac W 5%
  14. I am also getting whiteheads on my lipline and some of them becoming pimples. I have noticed this happens to me mostly when using retinoids and my lips are very dry, and have to use lot of chapstick. Maybe I should try the Carmex?
  15. I have noticed whenever I use any anti-bacterial my skin becomes noticeably lot less oily. If I try an oral as well as topical antibiotic, it actually becomes dry. For one year I was using only oral antibiotic erythromycin and no topicals, and my skin was lot less oily. So now I am thinking somehow the skin is producing more oil due to the metabolic activities of the bacteria? I know we have bacteria all over our body, but the whole body doesn't get oily. That is because only the sebum rich pa
