  1. Have been on Metformin for one month now. I was prescribed it by my endocrinologist as I was diagnosed with P.C.O.S and my acne is hormonal and tends to flare before I get my period (only when it is late. regular periods see my skin improve massivley - therefore, if my periods can be regulated hopefully so can my skin). Metformin works by treating the insulin resistance in your body, which sends your hormones out of whack and causes raised androgens which in turn creates raised testosterone whi
  2. Hello! So I've been on Epidou and Doxycycling since January 12th of this year. I'm getting quite disappointed because I haven't had much relief although my cystic acne has turned into more superficial acne. (White heads and a tad smaller) I take 100 ml twice a day and use the Epidou once a day as instructed. I also take tons of vitiams. It's discouraging to read most people claim to have their skin much better by 4-6 weeks with both medications. I get at least one pimple a day which definetly ad
  3. Hi there, My name is Jen. I was an acne sufferer since I was 15 years old. After many trials with the dermatologist and a step away from being prescribed Accutane, I decided to take a different route and give nature a change. It has been over 6 years that I have been acne free without the need of chemicals and toxins, just real healthy food. I understood that acne was just a symptom my body was sending me as a signal letting me know that there was something deeper that needed my attention. As
  4. Hello All, I'm new here and as my username states, I'm highly confused on everything regarding acne. In a blog post by Dan, he talked about some research that suggests the p. acne bacteria might not have anything to do with causing acne. Here's the post: What causes acne? It might not be bacteria. April 19th, 2011 An article released this month in the British Journal of Dermatology took a look at the evidence scientists have boldly gathered from 1950 through 2010 regarding when a
  5. Acne is a result of overactive oil glands; these glands produce too much sebum, which in turn, clogs your pores and causes spots to develop. Dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria can also trigger acne, as they can clog up pores too. When a pore is blocked, white blood cells rush to the infected area to try and fight the bacteria. The white blood cells then die and cause redness and pus to form. How to get rid of acne is one of the top health and beauty questions asked by many young people today,
  6. Argan oil acne treatment is one of the most effective, natural skin treatments. In the current cosmetic market, there are several acne treatments and most of them produce varying results. Amongst these treatments, argan oil is one of the products that stand out. To fully understand how argan oil works to get rid of acne, it is important to first know how acne develops: How Acne Develops The human skin has its own natural oil known as sebum. Sebum is produced by sebaceous glands that are sit
  7. am on my seventh month of accutane currently at 120mg a day at 116 pounds. My acne has never been extremely severe but it has been extremely persistent. I started on 40mg for the first two months , followed by a month of 80 mg, and now four on 120 mg. My acne leaves hyperpigementation of dark red marks all over my face, but my cheeks mainly. Even if I don't touch or mess with my pimple it still leaves hyperpigmentation. They are dark and embarrassing and I've had them for years. They are almost
  8. Well.... I think it's fair to say I'm desperate for clear skin. Before eventually turning to prescription medication, I tried a variety of home remedies in the hope that they would work. Now, looking back on my crazy acne-related adventures, I laugh. I tried bathing in salty water, rubbing tomatoes/lemons/olive oil/various other items from my kitchen cupboard, all with no success. And the worst...? Drum roll please... garlic. And no, unlike that 'very helpful internet site' said, the sme
  9. ...Advances in medical science, technology, pharmaceuticals, chemical ingredients, natural ingredients, and medical acne interventions continue to become more sophisticated and evolve, but the acne epidemic does not? And there have been no acne advances that have even come anywhere close to a long-term prevention. Why and how the hell hasn't the multi-billion dollar acne industry found a cure yet? ...no seriously! Why? Is it because there are so many different types of acne co
  10. Given that acne is by far the most common disease in the world, I’m constantly surprised at the amount of misinformation there is about acne treatments. There are so many commonly held beliefs regarding treatments, which have no scientific or medical validity but continue to be passed on from individual to individual. More worrying is the possible consequences of trying some of these options. Here is list of common acne treatments that categorically do not work: 1. Household cleaning products
  11. Please be very careful when taking Minocycline my daughter had been taking it for over 6 weeks and started getting headaches, on and off but got worse every day, nothing helped....no one had mentioned this could happen so did not relate it to Minocycline. Migraines run our family so thought it was that. She ended up in emergency room with severe headache, screaming, she had fluid in the brain but it took doctors almost 2 days to figure out what was happening, we thought meningitis or the wo
  12. Alternative Treatment Options for Acne During Pregnancy

    Treating acne during pregnancy is difficult because there is scarce direct evidence concerning the safety of most acne medications and pregnancy. In addition, some acne medications, such as isotretinoin, are not safe to take during pregnancy because of serious risk to the fetus. Alternative treatments such as light and laser therapy show some degree of promise for treating acne during pregnancy, though results are mixed and often are mediocre. Other alternative treatments, such as dietary...
  13. So I am on my 5th month of (Norgestimate-ETH Estradiol Tab) GENERIC for Ortho Tri Cyclen...and I am STILL having breakouts! My skin was mild before I started this stuff, then BAM I get moderate and painful flare-ups along my jawline and chin. Even occasionally the cheek area. I will occasionally experience "decent skin days" but still nothing like it was half a year ago. They start off as tiny, flesh colored bumps, then they become hard and infected, inflamed and red. I have yet to find a

  15. Hello everyone, I'm 19 years old and I've been taking Doxycycline 100mg a day for a little over a year now and during the last couple months it has become less and less effective. The first year has been amazing and my face was 100% clear but now I'm starting to breakout again and have decided to stop Doxycycline by taking it once every other day until I finish this months last prescription. My question is; what can I take after Doxycycline? I have ruled out almost all topical treatments and h
  16. Hello, I'm Morgan and I'm 17 years old. About 3 1/2 years ago when my father died I was prescribed Lithum from accusations of being bipolar. My skin then reacted by creating large cysts on my chest, shoulders & back. I have tried almost every possible solution I can think of. Cortisone shots, I'm on birth control that specially is more likely to help acne, I take Doxyclyin and have been for 4 years. I've tried certain types of herbal teas & treatments that don't seem to help very much. I
  17. Can I just ask a question. Alot of people on here are saying you can use Retin A and a dermaroller at the same time. The plastic surgeons on the NHS say u must be off retin A for at least a year before you use any acne scar treatments like laser, chemical peel and i presume needling aswell. I think cause the skin is more sensitive and could be more prone to scarring after being on it. Who has been advised its ok to use the two combined? Was it a plastic surgeon or dermatologist?
  18. I Recently came across an acne treatment that that is supposed to be a permenant solution for acne. It's called Clearskin MAX (http://acnefree.webs.com) , anyone knows if its effective ?
