  1. No. Seriously. WHAT IS THIS ISH ON MY LIPS it won't show up in pictures very clearly, but its there. they start out like tiny little clearish/lip colored bubbles/bumps on my lips... theres more. WTF is this. when i stretch and examine my lips i can see little specks underneath the skin or something. i think this is almost worse than acne. Im not stopping the regimen but please somebody, if you have had this and know how to get rid of it please tell me? I honestly can't leave my room. I know t
  2. Just went to a doctor and he says it looks like I'm suffering from an allergic reaction due to either retin-a or clindamycin. He reccomended I stop using both medications. Benadryl and prednisone for a few days in order to control the itching on my neck and wrists! I found out in deficient in vitamin D and many have said these supplements greatly helped their acne so here I go! Just purchased vitamin d3 with calcium. Working on changing my diet as well

  4. hey guys! a test here. considering intolerance or allergy cause active acne or zits and not just small whiteheads,blackheads etc i have taken up a test. i always thought peanuts are bad for me. for once,i had a few breakouts the day i had peanuts.but i couldnt really relate the two for it might have been hormonal or for some other reason/cause. i just a handful or peanuts. i will keep a track of whether or not i have active big zits or any other symptom in next few days(or may be 1 w
  5. So I had fine skin until this one episode where I tried the glam glow face mask and the murad skin perfecting lotion. I'm not sure which did it but my face broke out in this terrible rash, my eyes were puffy and it lasted a week. I used hydrocortisone to help it down. After that my skin got worse and worse, (also a factor, I was just in my 20's at this point...) I noticed more pimples on my chest and there were ALOT on my usually clear back. Then I noticed these small bumps in lines on my c
  6. Wanted to update my forum post () with a blog which is the direction I want to take the post since I'm currently in the "experimentation" process. I was motivated to do this blog to help other people who are trying to find alternative treatments to BP as I know how frustrating it can be to find new a regimen after one has been working so well. Currrently, i'm trying a new regimen as I found that using salicylic acid wash (neutrogena oil free wash) and aha (dan's brand) resulted in many closed co

  8. Hey everyone, I've been on the Regimen for just a week. However, yesterday and today, I started having itching rashes all over my body, but my face remains clear and looks better and better each day. I think it shouldn't be benzoyl peroxide, since my face looks awesome. It might be something I ate, but I'm not sure.
  9. Hello. I was wondering if anyone on here who has tried the Acne.org products has sensitive and/or allergy prone skin? And if so, what is your experience with the product? I have skin allergies that tend to result in red, itchy rashes and hives when I use anything that isn't hypoallergenic. I've been using hypoallergenic neutrogena products for the last year with decent success and recently purchased their on-the-spot treatment (which is not hypoallergenic) as a tester before seriously conside
  10. On June 6th, my skin was really good. My stupid self decided to wash more than 7 (!) times, and after certain parts dried out, I applied WAY too much lotion, which resulted in tiny bumps. Now it's June 8th, and I'm back at square one: My face is itchy, scaly, dry, and puffy. Small bump clusters cover every inch: How can I even treat this? It feels like an allergic reaction (my upper cheekbone area is swollen) and my neck is scaly and dry Any and all help is EXTREMELY appreciated!
  11. Hi everyone, This is clearly a hefty post, so thank you to anyone who takes the time to read and comment. I'm pretty lost and don't know where else to turn. The start of this week marks my 4th week on the regimen, and my skin has never looked worse. I've never had so much active acne at once. I've been going through weird cycles where I break out like crazy, heal, break out, heal. At first I thought I was going through initial "purging", but everything has been so inconsistent and unpredicta
  12. i have been using bp for 10 days and i only have a full face of bp twice! Most of the time i focus on my acne. Now, my face is so dry it hurts and i can't apply any moisturizer because of the burning sensation! I dont know how to describe all the symtoms because english is not my first language, forgive me but right now i have the feeling that my face have become so dry, even though i have oily skin before using bp. This area is where i feel itching the most! You can see its a bit swollen as w
  13. Hello all, Just joined this sight because I wanted to get an idea of what the "general populace" of those who've dealt w/ similar issues thought. Let's see if I can sum up my experiences this past year (almost) without going into the emotional mess of it all, while also keeping it clear and concise. Here it goes: I'm 18, almost 19. Period started when I was 16 and was irregular (talking 2-5 months without one) and always light and around 1-3 days. Never really had hormonal acne and only had th
  14. Hello all, About a year ago, I was put on an acne prescription that involved the use of clindamycin and BP together. After initially buying 10% max, since it was all CVS provided, I found that it thoroughly rid of my most of my acne in a few days. However, it stung so badly that I would actually had to fidget around to deal with the pain as it wore off. Well after a three days my skin completely crusted over, I mean when I smiled my cheeks cracked. My skin completely seared together and it took
  15. I used the regimen before, and it worked wonders. I stopped and it's been about a year now and I finally went back to it and applied an application last night, I woke up this morning and my face was itching and red and burning like crazy! Even in my last hour of sleep I was waking up from the irritations. What should I do? Is this normal? For the mean time I put Vaseline on my face. I don't know if that's going to help. PLEASE HELP THIS IS URGENT!!!!
  16. So I recently started using the regimen AGAIN after quitting for the first time since I started with too much and the dryness wouldn't stop. I am currently flaking A LOT and I really don't know what to do. My face gets red and the moisturizer doesn't help with neither the redness or the flakes. I los noticed that my skin is a bit puffy. Am I allergic to the BP? What are some alternatives? PLEASE REPLY SOON BEFORE I BUY ANOTHER MONTH SUPPLY + if you want to read my past experience go on my profil
  17. So, I've developed these red, itchy, spots of dermatitis around the sides of my face and around my mouth, and I think i've finally singled out benzoyl peroxide as the culprit. It's calmed down now after stopping the bp for 3 days and corticosteroids, but within 2 days of going back on the regimen the dermatitis came back in the same spots. I've been on the regimen for almost 2 years now using 2 pumps day and night and I can't explain why I am all of a sudden having these rashes. I've stopped usi
  18. Do any of you have extremely sensitive skin? My skin has such a hard time tolerating any moisturizer I've ever used for it.. even the stuff designed for sensitive skin without dyes, fragrances, ect. Even natural oils like jojoba and olive seem to irritate my skin, its weird. I have a derm appointment in 2 weeks, I just wanted to know in the meantime if any of you can relate... or have found something that works for you! (:
  19. I have done research and read about all the benefits hyaluronic acid has for the skin and I was very excited to try my new hylaluonic acid serum. Its suppose to give your skin more moisture (if used the right way) and have no side effects or "rarely" give you an allergic reaction. I purchased The Piping Rock brand since it seemed to have high ratings. the Ingredients: Demineralized Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Citric Acid, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate.
  20. This is the first topic I've made and I'm not entirely sure if it is most suited for this sub-forum, but I wasn't sure where else to put it. If it belongs somewhere else, my apologies. Firstly, if you're allergic to one of the ingredients in your topicals is it possible that you can just breakout in one place? Or should an allergic reaction be expected to occur over all the areas you put it? Secondly, is going natural (e.g. African Black Soap) really better than using chemical topicals tha
  21. So I went on birth control for a week... My skin was clear when I started; I had a very laid back regimen... only cleanser. The same day I also made the decision to stop washing my face and using products (caveman regimen) which made sense because my occasional acne was strictly due to stripping my skin of it's natural oils, leading to over production of oil, and clogged pores. When I started, my breakouts began immediately. jawline, in-between eyebrows, my skin was horrendous, and my face
  22. Hello all! So I've been struggling with painful acne for over 3 years now. I know that is not long, but it is long enough!! I have been to see a dermatologist and pretty much tried everything!! After reading all the advice on here I feel like I have been told things that no one has EVER told me! Not even the dermatologist! so thank you all for that! I want to start pretty much everything Dan tells me to do, there is just one problem!! I am allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide! I tried it right when I s
  23. Hi all! This is my first time posting any of my acne concerns to the wide world of the internet, but after losing hope in dermatologists and estheticians, I'm hoping to garner some practical advice from people that actually are going through what I'm going through. I'm 26 years old, and my first bout with acne was a mild case when I was 14 years old. After about a year of using a retinol creme, it disappeared and I had pretty flawless skin for the next 7-8 years or so. Occasionally, I wou
  24. About two weeks have gone by since I started Accutane, and I've noticed a few obvious reactions to it. I have the usual very chapped lips all the time, with mild dry skin. However, I recently, and quickly, developed lots and lots of bumps and scrape/cut like marks on my arms and almost up towards my shoulders. They are all over my arms and hands and, while not painful, are unattractive and bothersome. I called the dermatologist and am waiting to go see him. Anyone else with similar reactions?
  25. I have a very sensitive skin which is prone to recurring acne every week… so how can I tell if a certain product I am using/ a certain diet (say milk) cause me to breakout? how long does it take actually for our skin to react negatively to a certain product/ diet? how long do it take for whiteheads or pustules to form?
