  1. This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c
  2. 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
  3. 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

    Day 8

    Making this blog to vent my feelings. Prior to this current treatment tried doxycycline for 2 months with no improvement - since then my skin has gotten worse. anyway, currently on lymecycline. Tried this one when I was 17 (22 now) so hoping it will work the second time. currently, my skin is awful - the acne was initially concentrated on just my right cheese/jawline but has since break to my left jawline. Woke up today with a bit on my forehead - first one I've had there in months. I'm
  6. Just a quick update here. Still not a whole lot to say - no new spots which probably means the antibiotics are starting to work. However, those two big spots between my mouth and nose are actually four. Four! WTF My skin is really dry though I am trying to keep it moisturised. I am no longer using BP all over my problem area because I know the antibiotics should take care of that. I still need to make an appointment for the New Year to get a dermatologist referral... So...yes, slightly
  7. There's not much to say today, my skin is not much better than a few days ago, it could even be a bit worse since there was another new spot on it's way by the time I started taking the antibiotics. From past experiences, I know that the antibiotics do not stop what has already started. I now have two big lumps between my mouth and nose; one of them has come to a head and is now healing, but I think there could be yet another one right next to it, which is probably why it got so huge so quickly.
  8. 2 months on my regimen! My skin felt smoother and improved 50 %! My mom even commented on my progress. Though to be honest i still feel insecure, mainly due to hyperpigmentation. Most prominent after face washing, but 1 hour later my face looks dewy and almost close to being clear (i dunno if optical illusion or something). And i still do get 2 or 4 small pimples a week, which resolves within 2 to 3 days with bp (spot treatment) and differin (whole face) ONLY at night. Well thats expected from w
  9. From the album: Persa gel 10 Benzoyl peroxide

    I took this picture today (September 27th) and my skin broke out some more. Ugh. But those white spots are actually small pimples that have come to a head so I guess that is a good thing. do you think my skin is getting better, is the same, worse, or I still need to give it some time? This Tuesday makes 3 weeks and since then I don't know if it has gotten better or worse.
  10. Hey guys, so these last couple of weeks have been very hard for me because of my persistent breakouts as you can see in my last two posts. I got the cortisone shot on Thursday and it has gotten so much smaller!! Anyway, I could not figure out why I was breaking out so badly in just one area until I decided to look up the effects of Clearasil ultra rapid vanishing cream that I began using before I broke out even worse! Anyway, turns out this product dries out the skin so much that it causes MORE
  11. Today was Day 20 on Spiro (75 mg), Benzoyl Peroxide face wash (PanOxyl 4%), and Atralin gel, aka topical retinoid (0.05%)! Overall, things are improving My face is doing so, so much better. The pink mark on my left cheek from that stubborn zit is fading and healing. There's a small pink mark on my right cheek that's fading. And there's a bit of a red mark healing on my lower chin/jaw from a pore that purged an acne seed yesterday. Right now, my complexion looks so much better! It's mor
  12. Hey everyone! So I'm doing pretty good right now (knock on wood. knock on wood. knock on wood). Summary of weeks 1,2, and almost week 3: Week 1 - Drying out. Skin shedding its top layer. Starting to get small bumps/ more zits. Week 2 - INITIAL BREAKOUT. Happened to forehead first, then in different sections of my face. Broke out on forehead, nose, chin, then right cheek, then left cheek, then chin again a bit, then right jawline, now left jawline a bit. Tons of small bumps, more zits, a
  13. From the album: My Journey through Sronyx + Acanya + Doxycycline + Yasmin (and Vi Peel) + Retin-A 0.025 + Differin 0.3% + 1% Clindamycin 5% Benzol Peroxide

    It's almost been a year since I went to a dermatologist to get my acne under control, and I'm so so glad I did. Progress takes time, and it couldn't be more true than in this instance. Here's what has happened in the last few months, since there is a pretty big gap in between my last post: DOXYCYCLINE: Doxycycline, although I'm sure was helping my skin, turned out to be a killer instrument in destroying my intestines, and I'm sure my liver. I was getting what I call stomach panic attacks

    Yeah, it's swollen and messing up my winks. Good times.
  15. I am finally clearing up with Minocycline 100mg prescription and benzoyl peroxide 5%. Been using it for a month both together and its starting to show. The problem is I have horrible red marks all over my face (not scars but reddish even blueish marks) and I know aloe vera really helps with this. My question is how should I implement it into my daily routine? In the morning i wash my face with a light cleanser then put on benzoyl peroxide and leave it for 10 minutes, after that I wash it off and
  16. I'm disappointed. I don't know what I should do to defeat acne. It's the 7th week of Isotrex (topical isotretinoin ) in combination to Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (that I use in the morning).. I have been fighting with acne since September 2012. Now I'm annoyed. I still have breakouts , I still have red marks and red inflamed pimples and now breakouts are just happening also on the other part of my face. I'm waiting, I have been using it EVERY DAY with costance. Why my acne is still worse?? I will bo
  17. Hello, I have a few questions about Minocycline and some other things about my acne. Right now I am 16, i've had acne since about age 14. I don't have severe acne by any means, but mild acne. About three months ago I went to the doctor and asked for some sort of medication to help kill the acne. I was perscribed Benzoyl Peroxide 10% cream, and Clindamycin 1% gel. Right when i woke up in the morning I would put on the Clindamycin gel and right before i went to bed i would put on the Benzoyl Perox
  18. Its finals week- so I wanted to go ahead and post about what is going on this week a little earlier than at the end of the 3rd week mark... back- clearing (almost completely clear besides red marks and slowly fading bumps that you can't really see, but that I can feel on my back) face- cysts are clearing, SLOWLY. So slowly. The bp is helping (still only spot treating), but I'm still getting other bumps on my face (not as bad as the cysts), so it is still not 100% clear at all. Have been
  19. Summer is coming and the situation is not fine, so I decided to change my regimen for the last time. If the situation doesn't change, I will stop to use all these stupid creams. My new regimen: Every day (twice a day) I will use a Cleanser with 1% of Benzoyl Peroxide Every Morning I will apply a moisturizer (Sebium Hydra) For the nights: twice a week I will apply clindamycin 1% gel three times a week I will apply tretinoin 0.05% twice a week I will apply Sebium Global (a cream with
  20. At the peak of my obsession, my daily routine included scrubbing my face with Clean & Clear “Advantage Clear & Soothe Daily Scrub” and “Morning Energy, Shine Control Daily Facial Wash”, wiping my face with Clean & Clear “Shine Control Daily Facial Lotion” and Neutrogena “Blackhead Eliminating Cleansing Lotion”, moisturising with Neutrogena “Pink Grapefruit oil-free moisturiser”. Basically, if a product was in the Boots acne section, I had tried it. If it had the words “Daily” or
  21. Well, obviously week 1 has been hell. My face is freaking out on the BP. I am only using it as a spot treatment, but my skin is SO sensitive anyway that in the places that I have been spot treating it has been either breaking out more or is SO exremely red that I have to wear makeup during the day so it doesn't look like I got punched in the face. I'm hoping that at least by the third week my acne will be subsiding and so will this redness, I can't take it much longer. I'm very impatient and I a
  22. I've been using retin-a 0.05% until 6 weeks ago, but nothing has changed. Still a lot of red marks (that is the most important problem to solve, because I have 90% red marks) and still some occasional pimples. I'm not using Benzoyl peroxide 5% anymore (it's the second weeks that I don't use it) because maybe it could prolong red marks. I still use Benzoyl peroxide 1% cleanser to wash my face the morning and the night. I apply the moisturizer once a day (bioderma's sebium hydra). I'm asking my
  23. Well, I never thought that I would be posting on an acne forum...but here I am. Overview: I have had really horrible back acne for the past 3 years. I was prescribed tretinoin cream for it when it began, this always cleared it up within a month or 2. However, my current doctor decided not to prescribe me the cream and instead gave me clindamycin lotion. This didn't help (she didn't mention that I should also use BP with it...). So after a month of doing that, she put me on doxycycline. I ha
