  1. My sister is pregnant and suffering from severe acne breakouts. She can't take Accutane Oral Tablets please advise if applying isotretinoin gel advisable. She applied for a week on face and the acne is now less. can she continue to apply?
  2. did u try applying Benzoyl Peroxide mixed with Clindamycin Phosphate Gel. Try it for a week and see if u observe any change
  3. Absolutely Right You do get severe flare ups on using Isotretinoin. With 40 Mg a day, the breakouts were severe for around 2 months. I had steroid led acne/nodules due to usage of a horrible medicine called Betonovate. Things to remember while taking Isotretinoin/Accutane: 1. Always take it with an antioxidant capsule. I took 2 Accutane Capsules 20 mg each a day and 1 Derantox AntiOxidant Capsule a day. 2. Always keep a lip guard handy coz accutane as we all know leaves our lips dry.
  4. Dont think Milk or Dairy products causes Acne coz majority of people in my country have dairy products daily including Milk, Cheese, Curd, Paneer, Lassi and lotta stuff. I have read online that some fishes have Mercury present in their body and eating fish leads to breakouts. But at the same time, there are arguments that Mercury can't remain in body and it is usually flushed out through excretion
  5. Food has nothing to do with your Acne. I never had SEVERE acne before August and i m an avid spicy food lover and being an Indian, Masala is the spice of the daily diet and chilli and oil are essential ingredient of daily food of India. I stopped eating Spicy food and Non-veg food from August coz people said its causing acne, but things kept getting worst even after stopping non-veg and oily food..then i started accutane and i still eat spicy food but my acne is improving even aftetr eating non-
  6. Pop it with clean cloth and make sure only puss comes out and not the blood
  7. Try this. It worked on me: 1. Have Isotretinoin 20 mg capsules 1 each day for 2 weeks. Then stop since by that time your acne would hv reduced tremendously. Read side effects before taking those capsules 2. Apply Clindamycin Phosphate Gel mixed with BP and Aloe Gel in equal amount 3. Apply moisturizer: ICTYANE HD will work in case u find your face becoming extremely dry. See my attached pics it worked on me
  8. removing puss is good. else it keeps the bump forever and reproduces.. yeah acne scars r horrible i had amazing skin until july 2008 and since then it all went bad to worse. from december 1st onwards my skin is showing tremendous improvement hope it goes well
  9. There is no fault of the lady. I luckily do not have much of puss filled acne now, but my friend had. She had multiple pimples close to each other forming a big one. The doctor did cleanup 1ce every three months. She removed the puss out of the pimples with a tool (not with hand) and yeah the puss does come out from flat skin as well coz there are potential pimples down there. The exercise is called cleanup and the face becomes red for 2-3 days, however the derma recommended her use a cream and
  10. Guess u got nodules like me. Go on Accutane ..start with 20 mg a day 1st month then second month go on 40 mg a day. Hv 1 capsule of derantox coz an AntiOxidant is necessary with Accutane. It minimizes the side effects. Apply 50:50 mixture of Clindamycin Phosphate Gel and Aloe Vera Gel with a very tiny amount of Benzoyl Peroxide ..say 1/10th of the clindamycin gel amount u take and apply it every night and in day time. Wash ur face with Cetaphil cleasing lotion dont overwash ur face keep a lipg
  11. Mine was worse and for me this is what works: 1. Accutane (40 mg a day) + 1 capsule of derantox (an antioxidant capsule) 2. Clindamycin Phosphate Gel Mixed with Aloe Gel and a tiny amount of Benzoyl Peroxide twice a day Though your face will dry up, the acne will all go away use Cetaphil cleasing lotion to wash ur face dont keep washing throughout the day drink plenty of water eat green vegetables and fruits drink lemon juice
  12. Try Clindamycin Phosphate mixed with Aloe Vera Gel and a very tiny amount of Benzoyl Peroxide You will see the result in a week it worked on me. Also have Accutane and an antioxidant like Derantox once a day wash ur face with cetaphil cleansing lotion apply a sunscreen every morning while venturing out
  13. I have nodules for a month. Only started applying medicines from december 7. Though i am on accutane for 3 months now, it didn't affect my nodule but doctor said it will take time. I m using Clindamycin Phosphate Gel mixed with Aloe and very tiny amt of BP on the face twice a day. It still didn't show any result. My face got darker. So last night i decided to pop my nodules. Though they dont hv head i took a cloth and pressed it hard and lott puss came out so i guess it flattens them. I took a p
