    Hey Y'all! ^_^

    Hello everybody! My name is Nicki and I've been an avid onlooker of acne.org for years! I've finally joined because I have questions of my own and hopefully the nice people on here can help me out. Now, I am new to acne.org and fairly new to forums in general so I apologize if I do anything wrong. -___- I've had acne ever since 8th grade, I believe? And I know I get it from my dad, who has had severe acne when he was a teenager. My dad and I have even tried "The Regimen" product from here years

    Epiduo Round 3

    Well well well i should have done this a long time ago reallly!!! Brief history, i was prescribed epiduo last August and used it till around dec where i started experimenting with other products and my skin just got out of wack. Started using it again in March 13, and have been using it since but i have had breaks in between due to sun burn and just shitty skin lol so now this is round 3. This time i will get it correct. Epiduo helps but it also never stops being dry or flaky even with m
  3. Though this may be my first post on acne.org I've been on here numerous times to make myself feel better on the days where I can't bear to leave the house or look in the mirror...recently I've hit a new plateau of minor depression and realized how much acne has actually killed my confidence. I know there are tons of stories on the site so I don't blame you if you stop reading, but for those of you who want to know the acne story of a 21 year old girl you've never met before...here it is: I've d
  4. Im doing a 3 part acne program that I have found online from a person who has studied acne over the years. For the 3rd step for mild-moderate acne he reccommends a topical 5% benzoyl peroxide cream. For more severe acne he reccommends using Epiduo (Tactuo) which is a prescription topical cream that contains 0.1% Adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. Unfortunately I have not seen a dermatologist in over a year and an appointment can take months to get. On hand I have benzoyl peroxide 5% and

    Random Breakout?

    So I've been suffering from mild to moderate acne since and since last September I've been using epiduo gel and it worked perfectly after a couple months! I had no breakouts what so ever. Then in December I started taking birth control pills and it didn't seem to effect my face and I thought it was preventing me from getting acne but now I've recently gotten a bad breakout on my face. I also have a weird pimple bump on my forehead that doesn't have a head and isn't even red. I've also started wo
  6. So I have been on Epiduo for like 4 months and its has helped a lot. However, for the past month my acne has gotten much worse, similar to what it was before using Epiduo. I am starting to get large bumps and whiteheads again. I was starting to get excited to see that my acne was going away but now its just returning to what it was originally. What should I do? Should I stop using Epiduo for now? I am afraid it will only get even worse if I stop. Thank in advance!
  7. I have been using Epiduo or TactuPump (Same thing, different names) since around December I think and it has helped a lot with my acne and I just have Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation left. Since around the middle of February I have had eye bags under my eyes, I think the cause of it was my sleeping late for a week or so, but after that I started sleeping 8-9 hours a night and the eye bags didn't budge. They're a little smaller now, but they are still here. I am worried because I never have h
  8. Hi there. I just started Sprintec birth control (generic of ortho cyclen) about 2 weeks ago. Also, I've been using epiduo for a little over two months now. I am a teenage girl with mild to moderate acne on my chin, middle checks, and a spot or two on my forehead. I used epiduo last year and cleared in 3 months (along with doxy) but became resistant and took a 5 month break. Now I'm still experiencing breakouts and not seeing much improvement in my skin. Birth control was my last hope because I d
  9. I've been applying Epiduo for about 6 weeks now and I recently had my appointment with my dermatologist. He said that it slightly improves acne. When I first started Epiduo, even my face wash was irritating and burning my face when applying but it hasn't anymore. I still have flakiness and dryness around my mouth area and jaw line. My acne is still red and irritated. I don't see much improvement at all but my dermatologist recently put me on Doxycycline and I'm taking 100mg twice a day. My face
  10. Hello! I need some help as I have not seen any posts that are similar to my issue I have moderate acne, oily skin, large pores and blackheads on my nose/cheek areas. My dermatologist prescribed Tactuo (Epiduo in the US - I am from Canada) which is basically adapalene 0.1% with benzoyl peroxide 2.5%. It works very similarly to Differin, but just works more on bacteria. I used this product for 4 months and it cleared up my skin tremendously (I could actually go without wearing a foundatio
  11. Hi everyone, Long time reader, first time poster here. I have been suffering from moderate to severe acne for the last 3 years and I have been using Epiduo/TactuPump. I am also currently on an antibiotic. I apply the cream every night before bed, and without fail I wake up with my T-Zone covered in sebum. I am wondering if the Epiduo is causing this? I also get oily skin 4 hours later into the day. What should I do?

    Skin Log #581321 (2.0)

    OVERVIEW: I'm a white, male teenager. Where acne is concerned, I've been fairly lucky. I don't have any blemishes on my chest, back, or neck, but I have moderate and persistent acne on my face. SKIN: In recent years, my pimples were largely confined to my forehead. I had a smattering of small whiteheads on my forehead and some blackheads on my nose. For whatever reason, in recent months, my acne has migrated to my cheeks. My chin, nose, and forehead are largely clear, b
  13. So a little backround, I am an 18 y/o female that has had mild yet consistant acne for the past 4 years. I don't scar but I can have some hyperpigmentation. I had a bad breakout a couple months ago so I went on the regimen and made a derm appointment. I've been on the regimen for about 6-7 weeks now and I have seen much improvement but I decided to go to my derm anyway. She perscribed aczone and epiduo. Currently I am mainly getting clogged pores every couple days that eventually turn into smal
  14. Hi, my dermatologist just gave me epiduo (until she can find out from my other doctor if I can have roaccutane.) She didn't really explain how to use it, all she said was that I should use it once a day... but If I use the epiduo at night can I still use acne.org 2.5% benzoyl peroxide in the morning? I'm guessing maybe not after seeing a few posts on here but that bp saved my skin I'm so scared to stop using it! I feel like I really need something twice a day because if I ever miss an applicatio
  15. Through my most difficult times I was reading through acne.org forums and I promised myself that if I ever cleared up my acne for good I would make an account and share my story. I first started getting acne when I was 10. At first it was only a bunch of tiny bumps on my forehead that weren't noticeable until you came up close. In the following two years, it developed into severe cystic acne over my entire face but somehow it didn't get to me too much, probably since I was still quite young a
  16. Anyone who is/has been on these two medications, please tell me how your experience was! I just finished week two and my skin is definitely more dry, but it's not too bad because I do moisturize and that helps. I have noticed a few new small pimples and I know that could be the initial breakout because it's pushing all the bumps under my skin, through. Just wondering what I should expect based on your experiences? if it's worth it to stick through. I never had acne growing up, just recently I s

    Aloe Vera

    Hi all, Last summer I got reallyyyyy bad sun poisoning, like 3rd degree burn poisoning. My face was red like a tomato, peeling in chunks, blistering and oozing. It was bad. Anyway, I used aloe vera straight from the plant and it fixed my face in a week. Now, I have many red marks and hyper pigmentation from previous breakouts that take FOREVER to go away. I was wondering if aloe vera will help with that? I want to try it but am scared of irritation or more breakouts. Anyone have

    Epiduo- 9 Weeks

    Hi Everyone, So I know that this log is kind of late in the game as I'm starting my documentation 9 weeks into my prescription but I thought I would give it a go to help my self-perception as well as to hear other peoples experience. Week 8 on Epiduo was probably my best week by far, while this last week has been a nightmare I've gone from having 1-3 nodular/cysts to my current 8 nodular/cysts over this course. I honestly believed my face was healing and getting better but in the last

    Recent Acne Issue

    Hello All! This is my first time posting something on here but I have read quite a few forums and you all seem so helpful. I guess I can start with telling you about myself. I am a 28 year old female. I have never had an acne problem until a few months ago (starting sometime around Sept/Oct). I keep breaking out with cystic pimples on my forehead. I had switched my birth control pills around the end of August. I had thought that might be the reason for my break outs. Starting around the
  20. Hey guys, so I finished my 2nd course of accutane about 2.5 months ago and in the last week I have noticed lots of small spots appearing on my chin and they seem to be spreading to my inner cheeks, of course I am freaking out that my acne is returning which I am really freaking out about. My doctor prescribed me Epiduo but I am hesitant to use it! Im worried that I will break out loads using it!! What have your experiences been on it? Is it worth using? Did anyone else experience post accut
  21. I felt that I needed to share my story as a year ago it was me searching acne.org looking for a possible cure, feeling my lowest self esteem I have ever felt, feeling like everyone can see my acne even though I wear make up and feeling like my boyfriend cannot fancy me looking like this. I was willing to give anything ago now as my usual benzoyl peroxide was not working anymore, I went to my doctor who prescribed me epiduo (0.1% adapalene/benzoyl peroxide 2.5%) and started me on the contraceptiv

    Hey, I have acne since January and i’ve been to the dermatologist, she told me that my Acne was moderate, she prescribed me a creme ( epiduo gel). She told me to take Tetralysal if i had no results after 2-3 months using epiduo. Now it’s almost 3 months, my Acne became almost severe. I wanna take accutane, I have a rendez-vous with a new dermatologist wednesday. I wanna ask him accutane but I don’t know if he will prescribed me if because I never took antibiotics. I know my brother took it, he

    Acne Journey

    Hey guys, I've been on this site for a while now and am finally deciding to share my journey in hopes of getting 100% clear. Quick background, I'm a 24 year old female who has suffered from acne since puberty. It started as whiteheads and progressed to cystic acne as I became older. I used to have it all over my face, chest, and upper back but after getting on birth control at 17 I've had soft clear skin on my chest and back. Currently, I have a lot of hyperpigmentation and acne on my cheek
