  1. Alright, so I'm getting close to the end of the first month and I'm kind of frustrated. I had a pretty big and bad break out on Monday, so bad I had to go have the entire left side of my chin injected so it would go down. I wish that I would just clear up, but it seems like it's going to take a while for me. Oh well, no pain no gain, right? This month, contrary to my last post has FLEW by. I can't believe I've been on this pill for almost a whole month. I'm realizing that I missed a
  2. I thought I would share with you my survival guide for starting a retin a treatment. Feel free to add your own tips INITIAL BREAKOUT/PURGING: Do not use BP on the area you are treating with retin a. BP hinders the effectiveness of the retinoids and will only contribute to dryness and irritation. Instead, try using tea tree oil to treat active spots instead. I also find that witch hazel helps. do not pick at your face! This is a no brainer, but it is super important now because the reti
  3. I have been on Doxycycline twice in the past 2 years for mild facial acne and moderate cystic acne on my back. I paired it with Tretinoin the first time and Epiduo the second round (which I am on now). I am two months into the Doxy this time and my dermatologist has decided to swtich to accutane at the 3 month mark. I will be going through a 5 month course of accutane. My questions is, since I am experiencing a pretty bad initial breakout from doxycycline right now on my back/chest (and very
  4. 1st month: 60mg/day My lips have started to get a little dry. I have popped all blackheads a few days ago and have no new acne except for a little one on my jaw line. I'm still washing my face twice a day with BP 10% Since i'm starting to see the side effects of accutane, no more drinking alcohol socially, as the liver has enough on its hands The first time i took accutane i didn't get the IB, hopefully it's the same now. I think during the first two weeks when the initial breakout u
  5. I am finishing up the first week of the initial breakout period. I have been doing my treatment for 23 days now. I have to admit this week has been hard. I had a date this weekend so I use my olay peel 2 days in a row... BIG mistake. I ended up making my face raw! I had to slather my face in moisturizer and I couldn't use the tretinion for 2 days. In the last few days my face has continued to break out horribly. Its awful my cheeks and even up near the corner of my left eye is broken out. I co
  6. For those of you who have gone on accutane and experienced an initial break out. Where did you break out? 1. On the areas that had acne when you started accutane 2. On the areas that had acne when you started accutane AND areas that were previously clear before starting accutane. just curious as I will be starting it shortly Also, if you didnt break out at all during your treatment, could you shed some light on the dosage you were on, body weight and severity of acne You
  7. So it is only my second day on accutane but would have to say that I am definitely having the initial breakout! Omg this makes me so anxious asI am a bartender and have ro talk to people face to face all night! I's this normal fot this to happen so fast? My skin seems more red near my nose and more white heads near my chin. I ate piazza tonight though and it i's the first time that I have had gluten in over a month some maybe that has some thing ro do with it or it is the meds. I got tested fot
  8. My dermatologist put me on a dose of 10 mg a day for two months, and I'd say my acne is fairly mild but it's painful and it keeps coming back no matter what I do. My IB started in the second week (I'm on my third, exactly 21 days). My acne has never been this bad, and it's hard for me to cover it with makeup. These pimples are extremely painful and I got this clump of like 3 on my cheek, which isn't something I've ever had to deal with. I'm also super terrified of scarring. My self esteem has be
  9. I just wanted to know how long it might take for the initial breakout/purging to subside? I am breaking out into horrible huge red inflamed pimples! It's been a week i started the regimen and my cheeks are full of new humongous pimples which I never had before! Any help will be much appreciated.
