  1. This persistent condition is more than skin deep. It can leave not only physical, but also emotional scars, and that’s why it’s particularly hard to deal with it. Acne is one of the most common dermatological issues, and according to some estimates, as much as 85% of the population suffers from it at some point in their lives. It’s characterized by greasy skin covered in pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. Many adolescents have to deal with sudden acne outbreaks, which are mainly triggered
  2. Today was the first day of classes here at CSU and I can't help but feel upset about how I look right at the moment. So many people tell me that I cannot complain about my acne because it isn't as bad as others, but acne has controlled my whole life and now it's going to control my whole college experience too. This morning I got up for my 9 o'clock class and immediately put makeup on. It's hard enough to brush my teeth in front of the mirror, can you imagine putting makeup on too? Anyw
  3. To give you a little bit of a background, I started the regimen about 3-4 years ago. It completely annihilated my inflammatory acne. But the scars/bumps/clogged pores/white heads wouldn't go away. And thus began my long journey of going through dermatologists. I must've seen at least a dozen in that time period, convinced that they knew what was best for me and knew what they were doing. I'm a lot happier with my skin now, though I think there's still room for improvement. But I do really li
  4. I got really bad acne starting in March because of a bipolar medication (pretty positive). I had some before that around my period but never that bad. Then it just blew up....I would get recurring little red bumps around my temples and clogged pores, blackheads, red bumps on my cheeks. Sometimes it would even look rashy? I've tried otc products, clindamycin, duac, benzoyl peroxide, salycilic acid, diet changes, drinking plenty of water, minocycline, etc. I was prescribed tretinoin but heard it c
  5. Is Isotretinoin (Accutane) Overprescribed?

    Isotretinoin is an oral medication derived from Vitamin A that is normally used to treat severe nodular and cystic acne. Isotretinoin is taken orally once a day, normally for 15-20 weeks, with a meal that contains an adequate amount of dietary fat to aid in absorption. Even though isotretinoin is one of most effective acne therapies, it can come with severe and serious side effects. Because of these side effects, the FDA developed strict conditions under...
  6. I love Accutane / Isotretinoin. I was on it 2 times. My younger bother was on it 3 times. Now, my son is on it (Absorica). I'm a holistic eco-nature nerd. I've tried EVERYTHING. I learned to judge kindly and that there are no absolutes. There is also a lot of ignorance out there. Post Accutane, I've been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen and I'm currently on Spironolactone. I decided, since my son is now on Accutane (Absorica), it was time to tell my story. I've BEEN THROUGH IT ALL!!! I had me
  7. Which Prescriptions Do Doctors Prescribe Most Often for Acne?

    Several studies have looked into the question of which prescriptions are most common for acne. The most recent data comes from a 2014 study that included data from approximately 31 million patient-visits between 2005 and 2010. Here are the top 10 most commonly prescribed medications: In this article, we will discuss in more detail the top four most commonly prescribed medications, and then consider changes that have occurred over the years in prescribing practices. The Four Most...
  8. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a dermatologist they really like/trust in Boston. There's so many "top" ones in Boston. I was thinking about skincare physicians or Dr. Tan (OTTan.com). I was also wondering if there was any way a dermatologist section could be added to the forums. A place where users can review their dermatologists so other users can see which derms are worth the time and money and which are not. I am absolutely convinced (ok, semi convinced) that a GOOD
  9. I'm new here, so apologies if I'm in the wrong forum — longtime lurker, but new poster. I've had hormonal acne since I was 16 or so, and though not terribly severe, it's deep cysts and they're persistent. After failures on topical retinoids and antibiotics, I had success on spiro and a medicated face wash with no topicals, but was weaned off of it since it was working well. Now, though, about a year off it, the acne is back in full force. I saw a new dermatologist last week, who told me that
  10. My son is 20, and has been severely plagued by completely stubborn, intractable facial acne. He has been to a wide gamut of Dermatologists all pushing the SAME-OLD SAME-OLD meds and procedures, He feels that that 4 brief lasers a few years ago worsened the acne,bare KED his facial shape, and otherwise made his entire condition far, far worse. We are looking for PRIVEN, UNIVERSALLY RECOGNIZED, CREDIBLY CREDENTIALED AND PROFESSIONALLY RESPECTED Dermatologists who SUCCESSFULLY get yo acne!'s real,
  11. So last year I started using medications such as cladymc.... i don't know how to spell it and epiduo to put on at night which were prescribed to me by my dermatologist... and I haven't even seen the Dr. Ever since I was prescribed medication... And now the medications are out of re-fills so I can't get anymore and they work so good on my skin! I used to have extremely severe acne and I'm a 14 yr old girl... what products do you recommend over the counter moisturizers because I already have a cle
  12. My dermatologist gave me a treatment plan, but the problem is that I am awful at keeping up with a skin regimen! I can hardly remember to wash my face everyday and at night sometimes I'm so tired that I forget to wash off my make up. How can I remember the plan? It's a bit complicated such as applying a retin-a every other day. Any advice for sticking with your regimens?
  13. I am kind of bummed because I am on spring break from college right now. I am hiding in my apartment because of how bad my skin looks. I am too embarrased for my friends to see how bad my skin looks without makeup....so no pool time or beach time for me this spring break. So I finally decided to go to a new dermatologist last Thursday. My last one kept prescribing me stuff that either dried my skin out too much, burned it or gave me a allergic reaction. I went through loads of prescription
  14. My doctor gave me a prescription plan that is as follows: I wash my face, and then apply clindamycin phosphate topical solution daily. Then every other day, I apply a retin-a called Differin for two weeks, until I'm eventually applying this every day as well. Has anyone else had success with this treatment plan?
