  1. I have FINALLY been referred to a dermatologist after about 2 1/4 years of trying four antibiotics and 3 topical treatments. These treatments failed and I still have persistent (but not severe) acne at age 25 and a half. My appointment with the derm is next weekend. I have a few questions! About 3 months ago I went to the doctors and he told me he would NOT refer me to a dermatologist. I threatened to take accutane without a prescription if I was not referred to a derm (I really was/am fed
  2. Hi guys, This is my first post here because I have no idea what to do about my face anymore. I had picture perfect skin just 2.5 months ago, now my skin is dripping oil, constantly breaking out. I made an apt for bc but I don't know which one to go on, or if I even truly need it. I have a fee breakouts constantly now, but 11 days before my period (every month now) I get tons of breakouts, especially around my eyebrows and my cheeks, and lots of small pimples on my chin and jawline. I use a
  3. Hi Everyone! This is my first time reaching out to anyone nonetheless a lot of anyones! I'm almost 23 years old and I've spent the last 12 years struggling with acne. Not only does it bother me in the physical sense but it has gotten to the point where I can't be in fully lit rooms for fear of people seeing my skin (even with makeup on) and I have avoided mirrors unless I'm face planted into one looking at all the bumps. I have tried OTC remedies, all natural ingredients remedies, all the kit
  4. I've had acne for around 4 years. It's been gradually lessening this past year, but I have these really weird things on the nose-side part of my cheeks. Like, the vertical strips (but not skinny, medium thickness) of skin next to my nose. Maybe they're pores, but they're ridiculously huge and impossible to get rid of, at least with whatever I've tried: cleanser, moisturizer, epiduo, clindamycin is my regimen. http://imgur.com/a/RfATI These are it. How do I close them up? I heard S

    Starting Spiro Again & Antidepressants

    I was on 25 mg of Spiro for about 3 weeks and then went up to 50 mg for about 3 months. My derm was hesitant to prescribe it because I do not have PCOS, but said she'd give it a try. My oil production decreased dramatically. However, 50 mg is a smaller dose, so I knew it would take some time. I saw her once about 2 months in and she seemed disappointed. She said I could finish out the Spiro for the next 6 weeks, but if my skin didn't improve much she wanted me to try ANOTHER antibiotic. (I've al
  6. Hello. I have just talked with a dermatologist and I asked how long he want me to go on accutane. He said he wanted me to go on accutane for 6 months. BUT - I told him that I would like to be done in 4 months. (because there is something happening in my life after 5 months which makes me not able to still be on accutane) He said it would be no problem, but I need a higher dose. Is it possible to be done in 4 months - without having the acne back? Has anyone finished accutane in 4 month
  7. I've had acne every since I was 12 (2011), and it's been rather constant. The worst it ever got (and has continued to stay so) was November 2014 when a bunch of papules and large, headless pimples started to pop up. All the papules continued to stay on my face no matter what, and my acne isn't really improving either; it's getting worse. My cheeks are completely covered, my forehead is starting to get bad again, and my chin has a bunch of blackheads on it, as well as my back have acne.
  8. Hey guys, im starting my accutane and wanted to let you guys know how it goes! Im a 15 y/o male thats 6'1 155. I started getting Acne when i was about 12 (yes) and it has progressed since then. Currently i have acne on my Chin, Forehead, and Back. I am on 40mg claravis a day (the exact same thing as accutane, except just a generic brand, so don't worry) lol Acne was getting sort of terrible for me being an athlete and such, almost always having sweat or oil on my face and it started suckin
  9. I live in the United States. I'm a nineteen year old male college student. I don't have insurance, but I know I'm going to find a plan that works to get accutane. My question is how hard is it to get accutane? I don't want to mess around with antibiotics or creams/ anything that I will have to use continuously. I know some people need a second course or so with accutane, but honestly short term relief sounds dandy to me right now. I can't take the social anxiety anymore. So, if I'm uninsured

    Wish Me Luck

    Okay, so this is my first post on here. I've had issues with acne since I was around 12 or so. I used to develop these really big painful ones all over my nose. I ended up being prescribed birth control for that by my doctor when I was 14 or so. That really seemed to calm them down a lot. I never was completely clear as I always got a couple every once in a while, but I was happy. It was good enough for me at that point. Time went on and I ended up quitting the pill last year in June 2013 wh
  11. Hi Guys I have been suffering with moderate acne and tried to control it via benzoyl peroxide and over the counter spot treatments When i started University, it got worse and i registered with my University GP and was prescribed Lymecycline and topical Clindamycin (Dalacin) and after a month, it worked like a miracle with all spots gone and my skin felt amazing. However when my university finished and i moved back to my home, i had to re register with my previous GP and when i trie
  12. Hi, I am new to this forum but I'm hoping it can help me out. I live in Connecticut. I'm 22 yrs old in college and I have had consistent acne since I was 16 years old (6 years now). I have seen dermatologists when I was younger but haven't in the past 3 years. My acne fluctuates from mild/moderate/ to severe and right now its getting to severe for no apparent reason. Over the past 6 years my clear skin has progressively become damaged looking, my pores are large, my skin is oily and red, and my
  13. So i went to my GP for acne problems. its nothing severe but its VERY persistent. i've been going to him for years and getting different antibiotics which just do not work. He's just referred me to the hospital and the appointment is the end of october and i just dont want to wait that long ESPECIALLY if at the hospital he says he cant do anything. its got the point where i wont go into shops because all of them have massive mirrors and I HATE seeing the inflammation and redness and the spots, i
  14. Hi guys, On the 19th Jan this year I went to my local dermatologist for some TCA. He initially put me on a regime to clear up the blackheads/pore problem i have on my nose and cheeks for a 6 week period and it worked great so I trusted his advice. I have a few scarred pores on my nose and I made sure I did a lot of research on the topic of TCA cross before I went ahead with it. He actually suggested the procedure before I even asked him about it which instilled confidence in me. He told
  15. I am going to be starting Accutane in a day or two and my dermatologist told me to eat foods that are high in fat when I take my pill. I am a vegan and I am just wondering what some good foods are that are high in fat. So far I can think of olive oil, nuts (like peanut butter), and avocados. Would vegan butter be a food that is high in fat? Or can you tell me any other foods that would be good to eat?
  16. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone on these boards has had experience with Doxycycline and/or Epiduo. I just got a prescription from my dermatologist and was wondering how well it worked, what to expect, etc. I have technically severe acne, but not on the extreme end of severe. I usually have 1-2 cysts at a time and a good amount of pimples, especially on my chin. I think they're mostly hormonal. Also, I have moderate pimples and whiteheads on my upper back. Any advice is appreciated!
  17. hi! i have a lot of questions and need some quick advice but i'm going to give some background info / my personal experience first (just skip down to the questions if you would like!) BACKGROUND INFO- okay so i've had mild to moderate acne on and off since i was about 12 (in 15 now). i used to get pimples only on my forehead and they were never big at all. usually skin colored so they never really bothered me. i would also get blackheads around my nose but they were not noticeable. ( my mot

    Day 49!

    So my skin is starting to flake more and my face feels tight as if its about to start peeling. I just had a breakout a few days ago but it is going away now as my skin is getting drier and drier. I know I keep saying I think results are soon but Id say in another month or so ill be basically acne free. My lips have still been dry but I have been exfoliating them daily and I am using my Olay Pro-x once a day as I find it can be irritating if done twice a day. My forehead is 100% clear of blemi
  19. so I wanted to share with you what I paid over 500 dollars to get: a routine drawn up by a dermatologist that really worked. Then I am going to show you how I am working to tweek it for my newly uninsured unemployed little self. And before I go into all of this I just want to say wether you have insurance or not if over the counter stuff is not working please go to your general doctor, a dermatologist, even a free clinic if need be, it truely is worth it. I kick myself for the times I fell off

    My Acne Story!

    Hey guys, I'm new to this site and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Will and I'm 17, I've suffered from severe cystic acne since I was 13. I never thought much of it as I thought it was just normal, until I really started caring about my appearance, which was when I turned 15.I took it upon myself to try and sort it out and went to the doctors to see what they could do. I was prescribed Lymecycline (408mg tablet once a day) & Differin cream (spread only on face at night), I took t

    Day 107!

    So I have been completely acne free for like 2 weeks now. Ive been using the Bio Oil every day and Im starting to see results from that with my acne scars. its making my skin super hydrated and not oily suprisingly. I switched my face wash to Giovanna Dtox and I dont really know how I feel about it yet as it isn't as sudsy as my Basis Cleaner clean face wash but the Giovanni face wash has activated charcoal and goji berry so it sounds good to me. Oh and it has volcanic ash too. I even put t
  22. Helloo Since around the beginning of September, I have been breaking out. Normally, I have relatively nice skin and only get around 1-3 pimples a month. Before school started, my skin was the best its ever been. There was a point where I had no pimples! But now I broke out badly. I think its partly from the stress because this school year has brought on more stress than I've ever encountered. But because of this bad breakout I went to the derm for the first time and she prescribed me 0.1% Tazor

    Before It Begins...

    Alright. Dan's products come in about a day or two, and I'm ready to start this. I've tried pretty much everything. I've wasted (or not wasted, because at least I know they don't work!) tons of money on products and procedures that have never made my acne go away. It's only been almost a year, but I know that I shouldn't have to wait that long to have clear skin again. I can do this. I just have to be persistent, and stop torturing my skin with new products and treatments. It's insa
  24. Skin Condition Skin redness seems to be minimal like it usually is Lots of acne marks still on my cheeks, no more whiteheads two small red pimples emereged on my upper lip. Nooo. No whiteheads on my chin Just like yesterday my skin was quite dry and flakey. Dryness around my pimples Not as dry around my eyes as yesterday (improvement!) Not as dry around my mouth, But this is still the dryest area of my face my forehead look

    PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTIONS!! :)

    ok so i have my first dermatologist visit tomorrow and i have some questions regarding what to expect. will the derm treat all of my problems at once? or will they try to do one at a time? does the derm usually give you a whole regimen (face wash, treatment, moisturizer) or can you stick with the same routine you have now and just replace the treatment with a prescription one? recently i have gotten some burns on my face (from benzoyl peroxide) that have really messed up a few spots on m
