    Newbie thought: BP gel on ebay?

    I'm a newbie here so hello! Just a thought for Dan here.... I know of some small-scale internet merchants who sell some of their products on eBay mostly to attract people to their website. People search for something, find an auction that seems pretty good then they check out the seller's website. That's how I found the absolute best supplier for my chinchilla supplies. Even if some of it sells kind of low it still has the positive effect of drawing business to the site and to get the
  2. Hey guys i just got home from the Derm and i have some good and some bad news ill go with the bad first i THAUGHT i was only at a state of mild to moderate acne but what the derm tells me today my face is up to SEVERE CYST acne now so he gave me some topical stuff to try and in 4 weeks if not he is gonna fight with my insurance for them to pay for accutane for me i really hope i get it because im tired of these topical stuff not working He prescribed mono something iforget the name....Benzoyl

    can bp make pimples bigger???

    ive been using 2.5% bp as recommended. after usin it for a while i noticed it brough down some pimples however most of the time it seems not to work or make them even bigger. (???!) i usually dont have pimples however some has came up and i am tryin to get rid of them. does anyone know what i might be doin wrong?
  4. Has anyone tried this? Can I get some reviews? Im thinking about purchasing it..
  5. Hi guys , had some free time on my hands and thought id share my struggle with acne to the forums with some images. Its been getting worse lately and im not to sure what i should be doing really. I had my first N-Lite treatment on saturday , suppose i have to wait to see if it actually does anything, i pray to god it does. Ive tryed the following over the 5 years of struggling (im 17 now) 1.) Oxytetracycline Tablets BP - 250mg 2.) Benzamycin gel - BENZOYL PEROXIDE 5% - ERYTHROMYCIN 3% 3.) Vit B
  6. i have previously been prescribed tretinoin and benzaclin. now, there's this whole deal about how using retin-a with benzoyl peroxide cancels the properties of retin-a out. is this only if place both topicals on at the same time? does it not occur if you're using one in the night and one in the morning? also, with a bp wash, are traces of the bp left or is it all washed off?
  7. do u have to apply mostrurizer after applying bp gel? i havnt been doing it and my face dosent really get dry. is this ok or should i still be putting some on?
  8. So I wash my face in the morning with Burts Bees Tomato Soap and Benzoyl Peroxide and about half way through the day my face is oily. Not really oily but just enough to where it bugs me and I have to apply powder again. Any suggestions on how to keep the oil down?
  9. all my spots were going but now im getting lumps instead of spots, anyone know what this could be?

    Why use so much BP Gel?

    Does it really make any difference if you apply lots and lots of BP Gel on the face as shown in the tutorial vs using just enough? Have they done any medical research on this? I've heard using more will just increase chance of getting irritation but with no added benefit of preventing acne.

    Anyone else notice it thickens skin? For me, BP seemed to thicken skin and leave black heads ect... hidden under. As a 1 and a half year user of this, i noticed it very slowly thickenned my skin as time went by. However, it is slowly returning to its original form though.
  12. I need some help and quick! Ok these are the products that i really want to use, by Clean & Clear: Contiuous Control Wash (salicylic acid 2%) Clarifying Toner (salicylic acid 0.5%) Maximum Strength Persa-Gel 10 (benzoyl peroxide 10%) Dual Action Moisturizer (salicylic acid 0.5%) Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets The only problem is, i don't know what order to use the products in. I'm thinking I would use the Continuous Control Wash first, then the Clarifying Toner, then the Persa-Gel,
  13. Just wanted to share some products and ideas that seems to have finally worked to keep my skin under control. Some background: -21 year old male -Mild, yet -very- persistent, acne since 15 or 16 -Have tried Proactiv, Dan's Regimen, Botchla's, some other homemade combinations -Mostly get whiteheads, sometimes the small, but bright red bumps (forget name) -No blackheads ever (don't know why) -Mild, but definitely present red marks Proactiv was terrible, Dan's and Botchla's gave me decent at best
  14. Is it true that Benzoyl Peroxide can prolong hyperpigmentation marks? My face is smooth and I now have minimal acne after 4 weeks of Benzoyl Peroxide and Siaylic Acid. But I still have hyperpigmented marks which are still around and make my face look worse than it is. I want them to go! I have about 4 weeks more of my BP and SA regimen (total of 8 weeks) but I'd like to start removing some of these marks now. Is it possible that the BP is prolonging my marks. I know marks take about 6 months
  15. Hi, Ive been scanning this board over the last few weeks. The inormation here is fantastic but it always seems the same questions are asked over and over. Which regimen to choose, what should I add to my regiemn to make it better? I highly recommend for people to look at the book The Acne Cure by Terry Bubrow (you can get it on Amazon.com). The regimen he mentions is the same as "dan's", "botchula's" regimen only it adds glycolic acid into the mix. The regimen is (in order): 1) 2% Salicylic Aci
  16. How do I treat acne? By leaving it alone. Taking out blackheads is not recommended, and try not to pick or squeeze pimples: it can make the infection worse and cause scars. Gentle regular cleaning. Avoid excessive scrubbing. Special soaps and shampoos are not necessary. Benzoyl peroxide cream or gel, which gets rid of some of the bacteria on the skin and makes the top layer of skin peel off, unblocking the pores. It can help if you have a lot of blackheads but may irritate your skin. If so, s
  17. While I've visited this site before this is the first time I've posted. I'm 43 and have had acne for over 30 years. I break out not only on my face but my chest, back and arms. Been through all kinds of treatments from Tetracycline when I was a teenager to Minocycline as an adult, and every topical product you could think of. Treatments like Pro-Activ (or anything with Benzoyl Peroxide) are much too harsh for my sensitive skin. As I've gotten older my skin isn't repairing itself as easily a
  18. Why does everyone recommend not using BP 10% ? I think it works quicker than anything else plus if I use tons of mosterizer it's not too dry or irritating... Does anyone else use it?
  19. I've had acne since middle school, and I'm now a college sophomore. Needless to say, it's been a nuisance. I've been on Accutane twice, both times during high school; each was very helpful, but some degree of acne came back. For the last year I've had mild acne, kept that way with minocycline (which seems to be effective for me, but I'd certainly prefer not to use it in the long term due to the risk of side effects), Differin (I tried Tazorac, but it was too harsh for my skin), and various ot
  20. ive been using retin-a micro for 3 1/2 months, and its helped my acne some. i had mild-moderate cystic acne... and just regular acne. except my skin is so oily, the only way i can keep it under control is by putting on powder a million times a day (which i think is breaking me out). i know it's the retin-a micro because before i started using it, i always had dry skin.. and within two or three weeks of using the retin-a that all changed. the oilyness has gotten worse and worse. i think i may hav
  21. My name is rebecca and I am 22 yrs old I had acne almost my whole life but as of 2004 my dermatologist found something that worked very well on my cystic acne. The three main things that helped my face clear up. Here are the steps wash your face down with warm water. Dry your face down not hard but rubbing alcohol which kills bacteria.Let that dry then put on Erythromycin and Benzoyl Peroxide topical gel. Take to Minocycline medication 2 times a day. Also the most important thing of all 8 glasse
  22. the doctor told me to use it once a day which i do at night time as it if i use it in the morings aswell id have such a greasy looking face which will then turn red and dry so doesnt help if i have uni or whatever and wana put make up on. u all seem to be using it morning and night ???
  23. My regular doctor prescribed me mupirocin yesterday for a rash on my face/neck that has been there for a few weeks. I' ve noticed a lot of dryness now and woke up with some blood on my pillow. I was using bacitracin prior to this to treat the infection and normally mosturize with Aveeno Daily Mosturizing lotion and wash my face with 3% benzoyl peroxide wash. Is there anything i can do for the dryness that wont cause more irratation or rashes?
  24. i would like to know every thing about what is different between panoxyl and Dan's bp gel. Thank you.
  25. Well i've become near 95-100% clear now and havent been to this site in about a year. I use a regimen very similar to the regimen this site supports, but with a lot of other determining factors. Anyways I won't go into detail in this post unless someone wants me to. But I changed my life 179 degrees. From a horrible, loser, hopeless, homebody acne kid to visiting this site and researching acne like it was HIV. Anyways my story is something i'd like to see more of. But onto the topic of my post.
