  1. 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
  2. So I've been on tazorac for 7 weeks now and still getting cystic acne. Should I just stop and ask the doctor for a different medication?? When I originally went it was just hormonal acne on my chin, but now it's on my cheeks and their big and cystic. I take bactrum and wash my face with cetaphil face wash. Any suggestions??

    Acne Scars help!

    I've made two other posts with no responses (probably cause I went on a rant), so I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I started breaking out sophomore year of high school but didn't notice any scars until the end of junior year. Senior year was relatively acne free besides a few mishaps, but then the summer before college, I was very sexually active. Sex makes me breakout, I know it. Some people don't believe it, but it makes me break out with bad nodules. So going into college, I had a reall
  4. Hey guys, I was thinking of booking an appointment with Sk:n who said they can offer Roaccutane. Would I be able to get it prescribed privately, then pay for prescriptions/get blood work done on the NHS?
  5. On an up side though, I have planned to book a dermatology appointment on Saturday 25th February. It is Harley Street Dermatology Clinic. Super Super excited to see a professional for the first time. I got really upset and phoned home last night which was a mistake. My mum is really annoying. She just buts in with stupid medical shit. She doesn't actually know what she is talking about because she has never suffered from bad acne. But anyway, mum and my sister decide to belittle my emotions and

    first visit back to the derm yesterday! woo. i got given so so many creams and ointments, i left the hospital with 11/12 packets of creams! but all the check ups were fine and my side effects have definetly settled down quite alot the only real problem im getting now is a very dry scalp and the back is almost scaling, ive been given a steroid cream to use for 2weeks and hopefully this will be resolved. So i get the main symptoms everyone else gets such as dry skin, dry lips and once in a whi
  7. Hi guys, I recently moved to Denver in the US to be with my family and I am looking for help. I started with acne problems about 4 months ago and it has developed into a huge issue for me and is knocking my confidence. I need to find a dermatologist in Denver to help me sort this awful skin out! I need suggestions from you all for the best ones please! As my family have lived here for a while, my mother suggested http://www.aboutskinderm.com/ to me. Have any of you guys heard about these? Plea
  8. Here's a link to the post explaining the benefits that online dermatology consultations have, specifically for acne. Please post any comments, questions, criticism!
  9. Hey there! I just stumbled across a blog that talks about a "vitamin cocktail" that helped clear her acne. Consists of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Zinc and Borage Seed Oil Here is the link: *Moderator edit, URL removed – please read the board rules* Basically, she went to a holistic dermatologist who then put her on these supplements and she claims her skin cleared up! So, I'm very interested in trying this "cocktail" daily and seeing what my results are. I think it's an excellent change
  10. Hello, fellow Acne.org users. I'm writing on behalf of all the people out there suffering from acne; oily skin, pimples, dry skin, itchiness, redness, any of that stuff. I've had mild acne throughout my teen years and have usually tried to treat it by doing what people told me to do. So I'd wash my face with antibacterial soap, then moved on to facial cleaners and such. At first, everything was not so bad, but as time went on and i kept using acne products like benzoyl peroxide creams/sacillic a

    Has anyone here heard of curology(formally pocket derm) and/or does anyone use it? I just signed up for a free month trial and I'm very intrigued by the concept. Basically, you pay $20 a month for a prescription topical that is sent every 90 days. So, essentially this is $60 per 3 months(btw I asked if you can pay that amount upfront if you wish and you can). If you run out of your bottle before the 90 days, or if you find your skin does not agree with what they sent you, you can request a new b
  12. OK, I will try not to make this too long or whiney or whatever! So I'm here for the same reason as many of you: I have skin problems. Anyways, it started sophomore year of high school (I was about 15/16). I currently am a freshman in college (and I'm 18 going on 19). Throughout high school, I dealt with bad cystic acne. Some of it scarred, but by the second semester of senior year, most of my acne subsided and my skin actually looked pretty good. Some scars were visible, but it was mostly m
  13. HI all! Apologies if a bit of my post is repeated from my previous one, I wanted to start a Roaccutane log and put it in the correct subtopic. I have tried everything there pretty much is when it comes to combating acne. My skin is still crazy bad. My acne is bright red, under the skin lumps, with no head and my picking ..whilst it's better ..when I have something to pick at, i'll pick at it. I end up with open red sores all over my face. My anxiety is pretty much under control and
  14. Hello, I am very concerned that my dermatologist is not going to see me in time to prescribe the next set of tablets in time. I am on my first week of taking accutane (started on Monday) and tried to call today to book my next appointment in advance. I was on the line for half an hour before it went down, closing for the day until Monday. Each time I've had to have an appointment with my derm, it has been such a long waiting list. I'm talking over a month after booking it. Is this still
