  1. It's been a month! And in the past three days my skin has been a total rollar coaster. It felt like all of the spots on my face decided to pick up and move to my chin. I had twelve inflamed, under the skin nasty spots all on the right side of my chin. There were so many and they were so painful. But after an intensive course of steaming and hot compresses they all came to a head, were popped, and a liberal coating of honey was applied for most of the day. As of now my entire face is cle
  2. Hi everyone. This is my first post. I was put on Dianette after; Antibiotics, different Contraceptive pills, Topical creams etc did not work. I have had acne since I was 13 (now 21.) Acne has affected my life In such a bad way, I am so fed up now. After numerous doctors appointments I finally persuaded him to put me on Dianette, this was 7 weeks ago. Since then I have seen absolutely no improvement in fact I think they're getting worse. I have read online it usually takes up to 3 months to see a
  3. Well, it's been two months! I went back to the doctor a week ago, and she couldn't believe the improvement. I wasn't sure that much had changed, but she showed me some pictures she had taken before I started treatment, and wow! There really is a difference! I'm still getting a couple of spots, but they're no where near as bad as they used to be. They're small, instantly form a head which I can pop, and then they go away. Whilst I don't have active acne per-say anymore, I am covered in r
  4. Okay, so I cracked last night and used some moisturiser. I couldn't help it, my skin was so dry and felt really itchy! Apparently it was also quite red. I used the Simple hydrating light moisturiser, and I was utterly paranoid that I'd either wake up with ridiculously oily face, or tons more spots. But I didn't! In fact, I think it has helped a lot. My skin doesn't feel as rough or bumpy, lots of the spots which had reached the dry crispy stage have either gone or shrunk, and I'm not itchy anymo
  5. So I've suffered from acne to varying degress of severity since I was about fourteen. It started off as the usual couple of spots around that time of the month, and gradually increased to five or six which would never leave. In the past year, it's become much worse. I can't remember the last time I had completely clear skin. My jawline and cheeks are generally the worst. At the moment my forehead is covered in bumps and four actual spots, I have 1 cyst on my cheek and at least ten other spots of
  6. So I started taking Dianette almost two weeks ago. I'm 16 and I've taken two antibiotics before for my moderate acne. Lymocycline- I took this for three months, I had to stop after this time period as my skin had worsened significantly, and it was really affecting my self esteem. No bad side effects, and actually cleared up the acne on my back and chest; however really had no impact on my face, and if it did it actually worsened it. Erythromycin- I was on this for three months too
  7. I was looking back at photos from when I was 14 and I was amazed at how clear my skin was ! I was a late-bloomer, so puberty didn't catch up to me until I reached 15(ish) - It got me thinking, that maybe my acne was hormone related and so I have been placed on Diane-35/Dianette/Co-Cyprindiol. I've decided to do a weekly log (as such) so that I can hopefully look back and see some improvement ! Started: 26/10/17 (aged 17 and 1 month) Skincare Regime Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser (twice d
  8. Hello! I'm new! I've just started my third course of accutane, starting on 30mg per day for 4 weeks and will probably be upped after that. Right now I am completely reliant on the pill Dianatte (Co-cyprindiol), I don't have one spot right now other than whitehead/blackhead type bumps which never go away! but I can't begin to tell you how bad my skin is when I'm not on this pill. I have the oiliest skin I have ever seen on anyone, to be honest I would be so shocked if even one person on
  9. So I've never kept my own log on here but having read some other people's and found them really helpful for investigating different treatments I decided it was time I started my own in case it might help someone else in the same way! Unfortunately this initial post is going to end up being quite long but after that I will just be doing short updates on my progress. Wish me luck! About Me I'm a 21-year-old female university student. I've had moderate acne constantly since the age of 13 withou
