  1. I am officially allergic to: All legumes (Including peanuts and soy) All nuts Fish with fins Chicken, Turkey, Eggs. The only treatment is avoiding... Anyone else have this issue? What do you eat?
  2. I've been taking Accutane (Myorisan) for about month and a half, 40mg x2. Everything seemed to be working well other than dry skin and lips but about 5 days ago my neck suddenly began to itch so I scratched it, but it didn't stop I woke up the next morning and my entire right side of neck was red and swollen a bit. I thought maybe it's just another side effect and put on OTC anti itch cream. But the itchiness spread and it went upto my face and made my face red, swollen and sting. Then it
  3. Hi! I'm dealing with severe acne since I was 13. 7 years later I have tried everything on the market for acne. I've also taken several antibiotics for acne, and tried many topical creams and nothing worked. The only thing that is left for me to try is isotretinoin. I was so happy when I heard about it, thinking it would cure my acne for good. But after reading about isotretinoin online, I have found out that it contains soya oil, and that patients who are allergic to nuts and soya can't take thi

    issues following a facial

    Hey everyone. so I had a facial about 3 weeks ago. needless to say, I will not be getting another. I had a breakout and decided to go to an esthetician so they could get me pointed in the right direction with better skincare products tailored to my needs and such. I my sister had gone to her previously and she has alot of experience with acne. n fact, she had pretty severe cystic acne herself that she had since cleared up. anyway, I had a deep cleansing facial with extractions done. the extracti

    AHA Allergic reaction

    I started using the regimen January of 2015. And stopped later summer of that year. When i started using it again this January, it didn't really gave a lot of difference to my skin as it did when i used it the first time last year. And when i started using the AHA this spring, it gave me allergic reactions to it. At first, i really doubted that it was from the AHA so i stopped using it just to be sure. And my allergies was gone. The puffiness and the redness of my face was gone. So i started usi
  6. Hi, I am a 35 year old woman and I just discovered what was causing my big, red, painful blemishes, a condition that stayed with me since I was 20 years old. It was gluten-sensitivity. Before I had discovered this sensitivity, I had tried the "Proactiv" type medicines, I made sure I didn't wear moisturizer or make-up with oil in it, (definitely no sunscreen), and even went to the doctor to try a medicine ( but I soon talked myself out of it). Then a few months ago, I read an article about th
  7. Hey guys, So after using the regimen for around 4 months, the redness and itchiness is really getting bad, especially a few inches under my eyes, which I don't even get the product near anymore. I put on the benzoyl peroxide near my cheeks and there is just painful burning at first and I get very red and it feels hot, and the redness subsides through out the day, and I'm not sure if I'm developing some sort of allergic reaction to benzoyl peroxide, or maybe dermatitis? I have some pictures to
  8. Started "The Regimen" and while I waited for my 2.5% to come in the mail, I used a TINY bit of my old 10% that i had used previously. Around 6 months ago before doing the regimen, I used BP in my daily face wash routine and would use the 10% and one day had a reaction that was little more red and felt like sunburn and I stopped using it. It was probably just because I used too much at such a high percentage. So, now, I used this 10% (VERY small amounts) twice for two days and then I ex
  9. I have been using tretinoin cream 0.05% for 4 weeks on my face and neck every night. The past week and a half my neck has been getting redder and more irritated & itchy , I read that redness and dryness is a normal side effect but this doesn't seem or feel right ... Is skin supposed to react this way to tretinoin ? I also used it on my chest which is usually pretty clear it broke me out bad my whole chest was red and blotchy so I stopped and now it seems to be clearing up. I honestly lo

    A Sip Of Beer And...

    So my acne is pretty bad and I started taking minocycline about 10 days ago and it started to calm down a bit. Anyways, I just took a sip of Blue Moon beer and all of the sudden, my cheek/jar line acne that went away came back. I have no idea if I'm allergic to wheat or whatever in the Blue Moon. Has anybody experienced anything like this?
  11. From my very basic understanding, the Asian populace, specifically Chinese, are more likely to be lactose intolerant. The question is whether it is due to environmental or genetic factors or a combination of both. I cut out dairy and sugar quite effectively although I have seen my share of trying times. For instance, I got a new room mate that eats like an 8 year would if they were capable of buying their own groceries (i.e. "fun foods" such as cereal and other high fructose corn syrup treats
  12. Hello! I just wanted to know if its possible to break out from the smell of something? I know I'm very sensitive to citrus and since cutting it out a lot of my jawline acne went away.. but my parents love to use lemon for everything, so the zest smell often fills the house. I find that even though I cut it out of my diet when I get saturated with the smell it still irritates my skin. I know even without the smell I would still have some acne, so the whole thing could be coincidental, do you t
  13. So, starting early last week, My skin feels tight, irritated and I have some strange bumps that are only slightly raised with some that are slightly red. And the ones near my jaw/mouth itch. I think it's a rash of some sort and when it first started, I assumed it was a heat rash or something because it began shortly after I spent a day out on one of Houston's hottest muggiest days so far. but it gradually got worse and that's not how it ever worked before when I got what I figured was heat ra

    Naturopathic Acne Journey

    So when I was 16, I decided to find the root cause of my acne. I was convinced it was masturbation within my first two weeks of self testing. So all the way up until I was almost 18, I was tormenting myself trying not to masturbate. I broke down and masturbated a lot. When I was 18, I researched, and remembered my severely unhealthy diet I had when I was little. Then I remembered how acne came when I was 11. It turned cystic when I was 12 and started masturbating, which is what threw me of
  15. Hey guys, I know you're all a knowledgable group, so I just wanted to run something by you. Before I continue let me say that, yes, I did try to look into this on my own terms, but nothing of value turned up. Quick background: • Have slight Acne for 6 years • Tried tons of home remedies • Prescriptions • OTC stuff • Derm visits • Started doing Dan's Regimen precisely • Loved it • Worked PERFECTLY (100% clear) • Bought all of his products • Loved them • 3 months into the
  16. Hi Everyone, I'm new to the boards so I hope I'm posting this in the right spot. Basically, my skin has been pretty clear since taking Accutane nearly two years ago. I usually just have a couple whiteheads but they dont really bother me. However, starting about 2 1/2 weeks ago my skin got really bad. The first thing that happened was I developed a weird rash on my chin that I still have at the moment. After that I started getting A LOT of whitheads - first they were popping up around my
  17. Has any of you ever used Skincode Essentials products? I bought myself their purifying cleansing gel product, especially because it had none of the comedogenic ingredients and it's said to be for sensitive skin. I bought it a week ago, and used it every day, twice a day, and after a few days it caused me itchy skin, especially on my face, and small itchy rashes on both my face and hands (on the areas that came in contact with the product). I stopped using it this morning, so I'll see how my skin
  18. Hi everyone. I just joined, although I've had acne for nearly 12 years so I don't know what took me so long! I have been using liquid foundation for many months, L'oreal True Match to be precise, but it causes me to break out in my most acne-prone area, my chin. I use it because I'm very, VERY fair, and most foundations make me look orange no matter how "fair" they promise the shade to be. True Match is the only foundation I've found that matches my Snow White skin. But, I don't want to erupt in
  19. So I was recently prescribed a tretinoin cream for my acne on my face. After a few days of using it I realize that my face was getting a little better, despite having flaky and irritated skin. However, 2 days ago, I woke up to find my cheeks and jawline swollen. Is this a normal side affect, or should I stop using the acne cream?
  20. My face tolerates the peroxide while still becoming red and sore but my shoulders, back, and chest all become very swollen, itchy and inflamed. I even dillutted my solution from 2.5% to no more than 1.5% peroxide and I still have the same effect. I have just started using a leave on solution after having stopped use of a 10% peroxide shower wash several years ago due to severe burning effect. Does anyone have experience of using antihistamines to counter this effect?
  21. Before / during & after pics- you can probably guess which is which and why im so upset. I have always had mild acne but went on roaccutane years ago and have maintained pretty decent / clear skin for years with Duac gel and regular cleansing but recently I have been getting horrific "allergic reactions" to ALL of my facial cosmetics- just on my face- and cant even wear my foundation / use my facial cleanser without horrific results (see pics) . Basically now im house-bound and have been for
  22. Hi everyone! I am a 20 year old female who never had acne before my sophomore year in college. Then the summer of my sophomore year, I suddenly started getting very large red bumps on my forehead that could not be popped and were painful to squeeze. Squeezing them only resulted in a water-like liquid oozing out. I get them in waves of 5, wait for them to heal, only to have 5 more pop up on my forehead before the previous wave completely disappears. This has been going on for two years. I hav
  23. Hello everyone~ I made this account just to share this and another post I'll be writing up soon. So I am allergic to wheat, soy, and peanuts and am also lactose intolerant. So basically it is inevitable that I accidentally eat something I can't. Well two days ago I ate 85% dark chocolate with soy lecithin and something else with soy oil. I heard soy lecithin is ok for people with soy allergies, but it turns out the minority actually can't eat the oil or lecithin (check it out if you have a so
  24. Tests you can do yourself, things you should monitor yourself, what/how to interpret/use info from tests, etc. Because you need to take charge of your own health care. And always get and keep copies of anything your doctor has done. First of all, you can get quite a few things on Amazon. And some things at your drugstore. You can check your blood pressure at drugstores. And you should be monitoring your blood pressure. Home tests: I got this one in a newsletter today: www.canaryclub.org/h
