  1. Hello, I have a 22 year history of cystic acne. It started the week my second child was born and for MANY years was totally uncontrollable. My derm tried me on every antibiotic and acne cream on the market, and eventually I took Accutane. I broke out again one month after completing the Accutane treatment, although, my acne was not quite as severe. For the next several years I just used Proactive and prescription creams on and off. About seven years ago I began to get the severe cystic lesions

  5. First time posting and having trouble navigating the forums so I am starting a new thread. I'm hoping to find current info on my trifecta of skin issues complicated by systemic immune issues. I am female, 58, and have had mild to moderate acne off and on since I was a young teen. I have been treated over the years with lots of different topical meds and also oral antibiotics. I have sebaceous hyperplasia ( I'm going to call this SH) that is indeed getting worse as I get older. I ha
  6. HELLO! My name is Savannah Coots, I am newly married, living in San Diego, livin that marine wife life! So, this is my first time posting here, so bear with me!
