  1. Hey guys, Has anyone else been having the problem of 'manufacturing problems'? I went to the doctors a month ago to stock up on Acnecide cream which i've been using all year. It's a BP cream, worked amazingly as long as I didn't stop using it abruptly The doctor then prescribed me the cream but I went to collect it from my local chemist and BOOM. Apparently there's manufacturing problems, all BP creams are unavailable everywhere and won't be distributed again until next year. Has anyone else
  2. hi all, i just thought i would share some of the good results ive been having against adult acne & redness. the 2 main products im using are Sebamed Soap Bar (around £3) & 5% acncide cream (around £10) - both found in the chemist the "sebamed" soap is sls free, soap free & has a ph of 5.5 - so is ideal for sensitive skin. for a long time i was using 10% panoxyl which is good but is too strong, the acnecide product is very expensive but worth the price considering it ca

    Acnecide adventure - day 4!

    Hi all! So today is day 4! I woke up still not HUGE changes but it is slightly better... the spots are a lot smaller and have dried up a lot. As well as this the redness is fading away, thank god! I still have a long way to go but i’m feeling positive. My spots are mainly on my chin right jaw and a few on my right cheek. The spots on my chin tend to be more spots that come to a head and the same for my jaw and the ones on my cheek are tiny tiny bumps. My left cheek has normally always been cle
  4. Hi all sorry I havent posted properly in a few days, it was my sisters wedding and was just such a busy few days! Ok so.. my skin isn’t as fab as i thought!! The right side of my face which has always been the worst has remained clear which is good but the left side where i never had any problems has flared up. I mean it isnt really bad but with all the marks still hanging around it doesnt look great. So now i have 2 spots on my cheek (left) and about 4/5 on my chin. I am on my period thou

    Acnecide Adventure - day 13

    Hi all Day 13, nearly 2 weeks on Acnecide... It doesn’t look too much different to yesterday but maybe it is a little bit calmer. I have given in and had a snack today and yesterday which probably hasnt helped but I am feeling quite down today. I need to get back to my diet tomorrow. It is so hard though! I have about 5 spots at the moment but a lot if red marks which make it worse. Going to the doctors tomorrow morning so desperate to get something else to help me along the way. I wil
  7. Hi everyone Sorry I havent posted in a while, I have been a bit down! so my skin is not amazing at the moment. In fact, it’s really shit! ok my diet hasnt been amazing, i’ll admit but it hasnt been horrendous at all! Still barely any dairy.. maybe a bit too much sugar but nothing major! I currently have about 6 bad spots! All around my mouth, so my chin, left of mouth and right of mouth. The little ones seem to have gone (fingers crossed). They are very red and angry. I have only been
  8. Hi everyone... wow, my skin has really and I mean REALLY cleared up. It has probably cleared up about 90-95% I would say! It is mad!! The only bits of my face that concern me now are little marks on my chin, it is actually just dry skin really but still, that’s the only bits that bother me, and it barely actually bothers me. Plus the dry skin is not bad at all! I honestly can’t believe it, it hasnt even been a week and i’m nearly completely clear. I’ve still been eating healthy which

  12. Hi all sorry I havent posted for a few days! The weekends are always difficult to write! I had a really stressful friday night and woke up on Saturday with 3 big sore spots on my chin... joy! So my skin is obviously definately affected my stress. I’m going to try and take myself away from stressful environments in the future, for the sake of my skin! My face looks really marked under my foundation which is a bit shit! I have a few little ones that are little bumps and then eventually turn
  13. I went to my doctor about my acne and he prescribed me with lymecycline capsules and acnecide 5% gel, I tried a gel called duac previously and it didn't seem to work very well, just wondering if the lymecycline capsules and acnecide gel will work any better? And if it has worked for anyone else?

    Day 3 - Acnecide Adventure!

    Hi everyone! so this is the 3rd day! I woke up and my spots seem a bit smaller but nothing magical! They are definately going down but without makeup are still very red... but the bumps are less bumpy! I have been using Acnecide just in the evenings before I go to bed but i think I might increase it to the mornings too. It is my sisters wedding on Sunday, I really hope it starts to clear up a bit. I realised I havent told you my routine! So at the moment I am doing the following: AM - was
  15. Hi all so...my face is on the up again which is good! I have a lot less redness and no new spots which is good! The 2 big cyst like spots on my chin are still there but much smaller. One of them has almost gone now it has reduced so much. The other is still there but had a head this morning (sorry to be gross but I popped it) not much came out though so i would imagine it will come up again! My skin doesnt feel that dry I have been using number 7 moisturiser and it’s great i have always l
  16. Hi all, I have suffered from acne on and off since I was a young teen, and I am now nearly 25. Over the years I have tried a lot of products. In my teens benzoyl peroxide worked wonders, but as I've got older it wrinkles my face if it comes near it. I also have a patch of excema which I believe is from years of BP. I have also been on and off birth control since I was 16, most recently lucette which I believe is similar to Yasmin. I had a 6 month break from the pill and my skin was BEAUTIFUL
  17. Hi guys , Writing a blog about my acne in order to help myself record my skin's habbits, and to help other acne sufferers has always something I've wanted to do. I don't know why it has taken me 10+ years of suffering with acne to finally get round to it, but I am here now. Like I just mentioned, I have lived with on-off mild/moderate acne for 10+ years. My earliest memory of having bad skin was when I started secondary school, I remember I had to get a photograph taken to renew my passport and

    Day 2 - Acnecide Adventure

    Day 2! So I just woke up and checked my skin, it looks pretty much the same as yesterday, maybe the spots are a little less raised. I have to admit I did squeeze one last night which has really gone down this morning and have just squeezed one now and put some acnecide on it. Doesnt look like my face has dried too much, I used minimal amount on my face though! Today I am going shopping to get healthy foods to try and help. I heard pumpkin seeds are good. Has anyone tried these? I've also

    Day 1

    Hello!I'm new here but have been visiting the site for as long as I can remember, I have finally just signed up.My story so far, i'll keep it short and sweet! I'm a white 23 year old female!I first got 'spots' when I was in year 6(uk) so that's maybe like 10-11 years old) not bad spots but still spots. I had mild acne all through high school, wasnt horrendous and tbh it never has been. But still whitheads on cheeks, chin etc. Throughout that time I was on anti biotics, treatments etc but nothing
  21. Hi all, This is my first ever post on acne.org. Today I have been prescribed oxytetracycline which I believe is an antibiotic which must be taken orally. Along with this my GP has told me to use 'acnecide' which is basically a brand of benzoyl peroxide 5%. Has anyone who has taken either of these medications (or both) had any success, and if you so how long did it take to see improvement? Thanks
  22. Logically and scientifically, BP products should all work the same...however I am not convinced from my own experience that is the case. Quinoderm 10- Worked wonders, sadly out of production until at least the end of 2016. Panoxyl 10- Efficient, although quite harsh on the skin. Acnecide 5- Jury still out...seemed to work ok at first but now seems to be less effective. Perhaps some formulas allow for better absorption? What has your experience been?
  23. Hello! I am a 23 year old female, and have suffered from moderate, sporadic breakouts since my early teens. For the last year my skin has been pretty good, which I believe is due to a simple skincare routine (I just cleanse with cetaphil) and being on Yasmin contraceptive pill. However in the last month my skin has broken out, mainly on my upper lip, around mouth kind of area. I had recently changed to using Clarins products, in a bid to stop the early signs of aging!! This week I have gone
