  1. I was put on accutane for quite mild acne. I got acne maybe 2.5 years ago. I was 21 when I first began getting it. It was usually mild (easy to cover up most of the time). Sometimes I'd have a bad break out and it would be moderate for a month. It was still annoying enough for me to return back to the doctor every few months to try another prescription. what I've been on in the last 2.5 years (in order) - tactuopump (topical) - minocycline (antibiotic) - Diane-35 (birth control)
  2. I'm just really bummed... My face is purging right now on my right cheek--upper, middle, and lower, chin, and starting to purge on my left cheek. I have 2 actives--one on my lower chin and one on my upper chin (inflamed red bump). The lower chin one looks like it'll come to a head tomorrow and purge/go away. I have a bunch of red marks on the right side of my face and a couple on the left. Looks like the left cheek will purge soon too... :/ Any encouragement/ similar experiences would

It all started a little over a year ago, and I've tried everything from topical gels to antibiotics like Doxicycline and Minocycline (spelling?) to combat it. I have dealt with depression my entire life, but being ashamed of my own face is a whole kind of sadness I would do anything to forget. I am so embarrassed, that when I have friends or men I'm dating stay the night I sleep with
  5. Hi, my name is Jessica and I am a first time poster and a first time regimen user. I was inspired by some continuous posts that I read of people on the regimen and therefore I decided to keep track of my success on the regimen with updated posts. I have to admit I recieved my regimen in the mail 2 weeks ago and I partially started to use it(Daniel Kern's facial wash, bp treatment, and moisturizer, I am not using anything else/or anything from the store, only acne.org products). That was my first
