  1. 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
  2. I went to dermatology today. It turns out you see the nurse for your pregnancy test, to talk about any side effects and get your prescription. You don't see the derm until the end of month three. I told her about my very dry hands and arms and she told me my dose stays the same until I see the derm. The nurse did say that if my skin continues to be so dry, I will probably stay on a low dose because as long as my total dose is right for my weight it doesn't matter in what way I take it, it will
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hi everybody! So, I've finished my month of birth control. Yay! But.. no accutane yet. I got all my blood work done, the pregnancy test, etc. (which really sucked bc I've had a kidney infection & I've been stuck with all kinds of needles the past week ) and my derm cleared me on iPledge Friday. So, I got my prescription and iPledge ID card, all excited and what not only to go to the nearest CVS to find that they don't have Clavaris 20 mg in stock. So, I call around and NOBODY has it in stoc

    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
  7. So first off I wanna say thanks to everyone for reading my blog now that I have over 4000 views! I havent had one zit until today I got a very very small one that will be gone in a day or two. I've noticed Accutane is making me not very hungry at all. My skin has been really dry and Im using all the same products. Im almost halfway done with Accutane! My hyperpgimentation is still there and I am patiently waiting for them to fade. Theres not really much else to update. Keep reading!!!

    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
  9. 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
  10. Hey guys. I'm new here. Anyways, as most of you-- I basically tried EVERYTHING there is to offer in the market but nothing ever worked for me. Ever since I was 10 (which was when I first started having my periods and now I'm 19 nearly 20), I was already experiencing acne breakouts. My mom would send me to the best dermatologist every Saturday in my city 'til I was 13. Constant extraction from the doc. Constant shit on my face and it would never ever stop! So my dermatologist then suggested Ac
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. I took oratane back in OCT 7 2016 up until JULY 7 2017, so for 9 months at 40mg/day. Before that I tried everything OTC from drugstore to highend, and prescriptions ever since I was 13 such as clindatech, epiduo, duac gel and 4 rounds of antibiotic minomycin. I also went vegan for 2 years, to improve my skin, however that was useless. I’m 16 yrs old and female. BACKSTORY - (YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ THIS) This was when i was 13/14/15 years old - Before going on oratane, I remember previously st
  14. (For the explanation of the topic itself, skip to the button.) Honestly if no one reads this, it's ok. Too long, didn't read for you? It's ok. I don't blame you. I know, it's really long. I just need to get these emotions out. I wanted to do this many times before, but I didn't, and now here I type. History of me and my acne (if uninterested, feel free to skip) I need to pour all of these emotions out somewhere. I'm tired of locking myself up in my room and screaming silently and cry
  15. 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
  16. Hello everyone. I have been on epiduo, the oral antibiotic solodyn, and clindamycin phosphate lotion for about three and a half weeks now after a massive stress breakout, and my fourth week follow up with my dermatologist is in a few days. I'm so upset because I had relatively clear skin before I went through one of the most stressful weeks in my life, and afterwards I was left with a face full of cysts, white heads, and angry red pimples all over my cheeks and chin. I have seen seen some improv
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. I have suffered from moderate / severe acne for 4 years since I was 15 and I have been trying different treatments (with absolutely no success) for the past two years (Oxytetracycline, Benzoyl peroxide, lymecycline, zineryt, differin, doxycycline, flucloxacillin and many over-the-counters). I was referred to a dermatologist on the NHS 5 months ago and they put me on differin/ doxycycline which I have been using since. I have my next appointment in the near future and I have decided that, conside
  21. So I don't think I have a major problem with acne. I have some acne scars but they don't bother me. What bothers me are these patch of bumps on my forehead which never seems to go away with any topical medication I use. My acne got better but the rash looks worse and has spread since winter started. It's very dry and the bumps are raised SO makeup cannot cover it. A few months ago the patch bumps were there but they were flatter and less visible. I don't understand why it's not going away but it
  22. Hello. I am new to this community, but I wanted to speak to people in the same position as me. None of my close friends have moderate acne like me so I feel all alone. My first breakout was when I turned thirteen years old, and it hasn't stopped since then (I am now 22 years old). Back in grade 11 I started using Benzaclin and Differin prescribed by my dermatologist and my pimples decreased drastically. However, I still get frequent breakouts, especially around my period, not to mention all the
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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
