  1. Now, I have been using Azelex for about two years now, maybe more. Yesterday for the first time ever I didn't have any Azelex left and I couldn't get any more because the pharmacy was closed. Throughout the day, my skin felt lighter and less oily than it ever has, and I didn't develop a single pimple throughout the day(which I normally do) Could it be that Azelex is making my acne worse? Keep in mind I have been using it for years.
  2. I use Azelex..and one 50g tube usually lasts me about 6 months...but I switched insurances..and my new plan doesn't cover it at all...so it will cost me $215.00 for one tube! The derm. wasn't sure if they made a generic or not. He wrote me an RX for it again in June..and wrote generic on it...but I was wondering if anyone has a generic form of it or know if one exists? I can't even find a website for Azelex...which I thought was kind of weird. Thanks!!
  3. I have a horrible sense of space and I always use a large goop of azelex cream twice a day because Im worried if I dont use a lot, it wont help the pimples. I use it twice a day because it says on the prescription thats how much Im supposed to use. My question, how long is one prescription of this tube supposed to last? Ive only been using it since I think the 9th and Im almost out after not even a month.
  4. How do you guys put it on? My doctor said something about using it like a wash. Just apply while face is still wet, then just rinse off. But...in the instructions, it says to apply after patting face dry. Again, question is, how do you guys put it on? Do you put a bunch on? or do you just put just enough on the affected area to the point where the skin just has a thin film of white, or do you just massage until it disappears. How I've been doing it: I just put a pea size amount on my finger,
  5. Are the people who are using Azelex also using a moisturizer? If so, briefly describe your personal regimen.
  6. Long story short: - Visited derm for the first time in almost two years. - Brought up my somewhat mild facial acne, mild/negligable chest acne and moderate/serious upper back acne - Brought up the previous topicals I've been prescribed: Duac Gel, Retin-A Micro, Azelex, generic Clindamycin and Differin cream. - Mentioned that aside from Duac, I hadn't used any of the others on a regular basis to deduce how well they worked on me. - Mentioned that during my stint with Duac, it took too long t
  7. Hi, Im taking 20mg of isotretinoin per day and in the second month..Yesterday i went to my derm and ask for the superficial glycolic acid peeling and he said i can do it for 6 times,once in every two weeks..At first i thought it is going to be a disaster but it is not..My scar lighten up after the first course and i do will complete the six times course..My skin do get red at first and the redness reduce times after times...If you want to undergo this type of treatment,here are some advices: *
  8. Has anyone used this specifically for acne marks? If so has it helped? From the research i've seen on this topical, it is said to be made for marks and hyperpigmentation. Any success stories?
  9. I hav oily skin, tons tiny zits, 2 zits, and lots of pinkness. I go to derm 2morro, anyone used this med? I will not use Accutane or retenoids
  10. Hey, I'm about to go on Azelaic acid (alongside Lymecycline), and I've just come off Retin-A, after a horrible experience. Retin-A destroyed my skin and I was no way going to wait it out, so I've come off it and gone onto Lymecycline. I'm collecting Azelaic acid (to supplement Lymecycline) tomorrow, but I hope it doesn't cause this whole purging or 'gets worse before it gets better' effect that Retin-A and other retinoids do. Does Azelaic acid have an 'initial breakout' or purging effect? Al
  11. So ive been reading up on Finacea and thought that it would be perfect for me (i got red marks + clogged pores). I have Azelex, the 20% one. Ive recently been using BHA (paula's choice lotoin) and green cream (sparingly). Is it okay to use BHA and Finacea at the same time? If I can, would Finacea morning + night and BHA only at night work as a good regimen? Also, can i use green cream from time to time as well?
  12. Yep you do not need anything topical if you use Accutane. Anyway here a list of the only topicals that works. Azelaic acid ( Skinoren/cutacelan/azelex) Tretioin Ketoconazole ( Nizoral shampoo ) ANTIBIOTICS DO NOT WORK!!!
  13. I just started Accutane 1 week ago. I can already see the difference! My face has cleared tremendously! My face is already drying out and peeling slightly. I thought it was supposed to take a month to see results. Is this normal? As a precaution, I have already started myself on Cetaphil for my face, Eucering Lotion for my body and Aquafor for my lips. I am noticing though that my scalp and skin is very itchy. Not from being dry. Is this normal??? I am terrified that I am going to expe
  14. So Ive been dealing with acne since i was 16 and im 24 now.. I've tried prescriptions and medications couple times in the past and always used BP or acylic acid, 2 months ago I went to the dermatologist because my scaring has gotten bad... and I had some breakouts around 5 cystic pimples.. he told me I would be a candidate for laser treatment or accutane gave me some broshures and prescribed me mindocylcine 100 mg twice a day and azelex acid 20% night and day... anyway after the 2monhts i used t
  15. I started back usin Azelex an the next day i wake up my skin is dry an red it wont go away idk what to do about it but dont use it ever
  16. i have inflammatory/moderate acne. i've been using tretinoin .05% cream and bp 6% wash but i dont think it's working. i still get large pustules and whiteheads. my skin has been acting up since i got that freaking chemical peel(which was 2 months ago) i'm seeing my derm next week and i'm hoping he will prescribe azelex.. i've heard many good things about it.
  17. Wondering if anyone in your family is using a PRESCRIPTION topical ACNE drug product (list below of some brands but you might have a generic version which is fine too). If so I'm trying to find out the "shelf life" of various products so as to determine which is best for me. If you still have original outer packaging that the tube/pump came in, it should have an expiration date on it. Please respond and note: 1) the brand/generic name 2) product form (gel, cream, foam, whatever) 3) the m
  18. Hey I have been using azelaic acid for a few weeks now however am not seeing the results I expected. I also use tretinoin at night. I was wondering if I can use hydroquinone with tretinoin at night and azelaci acid in the morning. Also if someone could recommend a good sunscreen please!
  19. Hey guys, I have a doctor's appointment with my Derm this Friday and was hoping for him to give me a prescription for Accutane. I have mild acne on my face. My back is different story. I have so many bumps back there it is so nasty. Sometimes it gets hard to put on my t-shirt. I was wondering if Derms give prescription for bacne. I am hoping so. I have tried Traiz, Doxcycline, Tazorac Gel and Cream, Azelex Acid. They have helped but still get some pimples. My pores are also much clogged
  20. im just about done with over the counter topicals, tried everything for the past year and half. im about to try something else. im going to ask my doctor to prescribe me azelex. but my concern is how it really works. im reading stuff online, but not really getting the answers that i want. does it work as a part of regimen, such as cleanser, toner, and the cream? or is it just cream on its own? and i work in a very hot kitchen, so i sweat a lot. will that affect the cream at all? has anyone that
  21. Hi guys, can azelex or finacea help mild acne scarring (scarred pores and superficial scars?)...Also I think I've read that azelex is less potent than finacea, so it is usually better for sensitive skin...Is that people's experiences? My skin is really sensitive and dry! Also I'm really nervous about the facial hair growth side effect! Has that happened to anyone?
  22. I started using this three days ago and i did not feel a thing since day one no burning or itching like people state on this site... is that good? lol does it mean its still working?
