  1. Today I went to the doctors about my skin. I ment my grandfather in the waiting room, who commented that my face was a mess. Immediately I wanted to run home and hide (any bravado I'd managed to work up going there without make up was instantly shot down). Anyways. The doctor took a look, and said that the acne wasn't going to go away on it's own without medicine. She prescirbed me an oral antibiotic and a gel for nighttime. I'm returning next week for a blood test. This might seem completel
  2. Hey guys, I'm here to share my story about Retin A damage. I used Retin A for 2 months (exactly 12 uses) and it destroyed my skin. I had very nice skin before this happened and was only given Retin A as a preventive against aging and for a few chin breakouts. It has caused huge pores, orange peel texture, dents, lines, cracks, dehydrated, dry, molted skin with a shiny film covering it. I'm extremely depressed about this, but I'm still hopeful that this damage can be fixed. I'm just short of 3
  3. Everytime I take a nap for about an hour and wake up my face is dry and tight and flakey allover. I also wakeup feeling very dehydrated sometimes with a headache and achey body. It seems to happen almost every time I take a nap and the same thing always happens. When I go to nap my face is doing great and is mousturized from my morning regmine stil so I don't understand. My eyes will also be red and dry. It's almost like taking a nap triggers some kind of weird severe dehydration in my body. Whe
  4. Hello (long post) Picture explanation The first photo of my nose, is right after I’ve cleansed my skin and removed the dead skin with a cotton pad. You can see that my skin doesn’t have any hydration or a protective barrier. The second photo shows my chin after waking up. You can see the yellow / white flakes of dead skin on my chin. I do also have this on the rest of my face (mainly: chin, nose and eyebrows). The amount of flaky skin on my face varies from day to day and I don’t know
  5. Hello everyone, almost 3 weeks ago I was prescribed a generic version of ortho-tri-cyclen by my doctor called Tri-lin-yah. The main thing I want to bring up is how suddenly dry my skin is. Not just my face but my whole body. Not only that but I feel extremely dehydrated overall and my lips feel very dry along with my contacts/eyes. My face is getting so dry to the point that makeup looks weird when I'm trying to cover up my skin, which is broken out pretty bad, so it's upsetting. I was wonderin
  6. Heyyo, I'm new to this forum but joined because I'm having some serious issues getting my skin under control, and need some advice if possible? I used to use a ton of things on my face, alcohols, BP, Salicylic Acid, you name it, sometimes all at once, and other times switching products very frequently (I had mild-moderate acne as a teen). As you can probably guess, my skin didn't like that and ever since trying products I've always had issues. After I stopped wearing makeup entirely and
  7. I started taking the antibiotic a little over a week ago alongside my newly adjusted Duac-Differin combo. It seems to be doing it's job...I suppose. I can't really tell just yet because my regimen has been all walked up and inconsistent since mid-March. I'm supposed to contact my dermatologist at the two week point (this Friday) and I believe start to ween myself off the Bactrim (begin only taking it once a day, instead of twice). I was wondering what anyone has experienced while taking this
  8. Hey ladies, I'm a 23 yo female on month 6 of 40mg/day of Accutane. I actually only take it every few days now because it's hard on my body, but it's working miracles and I'm happy with the results. So I am (technically) sexually active. I was seeing someone right up until I went on Accutane and that was all good. But I am now seeing someone else, while on Accutane, and things are kind of getting serious. The thing is, Accutane pretty much robs my body of all fluids. I try to drink a lot o
