  1. Hi everyone, So over the past few days I got probably 5 to 10 new zits that were on my cheeks. They were all pretty small, but I was worried that my IB was starting. But when I looked in the mirror this afternoon, my face was not nearly as bad as I thought it was. So, I think that some of the zits that I got just went away because they were so small. Still, not really experiencing any intense dryness. I obviously do have some dryness but it's not bad enough for me to be using mois

    Hello

    Hello Guys, so I have started taking Accutane about 5 weeks ago. As I am very interested in the topic and have been reading a log of logs lately I thought it might be nice to share my experience with you. First, a little bit about myself. I am 16 years old, I am from Germany (so pardon any grammar mistakes) and I have been suffering under acne since I was about ten. I have had all levels of acne. It started out really light and kept getting worse until I was 14. Then it went back and for a fe
  3. No changes and no new pimples. Really nice skin tone! Pimples are rapidly clearing up and so are scars! I'm hoping not to jinx it since I haven't had a bad day yet. I'm also hoping I don't get the dreaded dead skin layer! bleh. Anyways one nice thing is I no longer feel oily or dirty. My face feels really nice!! --------------------EDIT okay so it's now nighttime and I have a few new pimples...hope they go away quickly but they are tiny
  4. Okay so basically you do exactly what the regimen is called. You act like a caveman. You let nothing (NOTHING) touch your face. Not even water. You may be thinking ewww gross but when you look at more information, you will see the theory behind the regimen. If you want a TON of information, check out a page called the love vitamin. Anyways have you ever felt like whenever you start using a new cleanser or face wags or whatever, that your acne either stays the same or gets worse!!??? I have! Okay
  5. Hi guys. I keep getting new pimples!! At least they're not really bad ones, not nodular or anything. Just whiteheads (closed comedones). I always have little blackheads (closed comedones) on my nose and chin. So I've been reading about The Regimen and I really like the Product Guide. It's really helpful. I looked online at some of the ingredients in some products I'd been using that I had suspicions about, and of course they had ingredients that clog pores! I've been cleaning out my bathroo
  6. After being severely depressed about my face, I finally went back to the doctors to be put on something else. A little history first. I have had acne since I was 12/13. It was worse back then than it is now, which is weird because when I was 12-15 I didn’t care about my acne. It was never “severe” but I still had quite a lot. When I was 14 my mum asked if it bothered me and that I could have it treated. I didn’t care too much and I was like eh why not? And was put in zineryt lotion. That cleare
  7. Welp, after around 4 years of being off of Accutane, my acne has returned. Not as bad as it was in my junior year of high school, but I'm getting more and more painful nodular cysts on my back and neck. I'm currently 21, a junior in college. I've decided to go back on Accutane, hopefully for the last time. My dermatologist has started me off on a dose of 80mg/day of Absorica. That equates to about 1mg/kg per day. I weigh 175 lbs. give or take. As of the time of this post, it has been 10 days
  8. Hello, thanks for reading my log. Before I start my journey, here is a little bit about my situation... I am 17 years old with a combination of moderate cystic and inflamed acne. I have dealt with this for quite some time now, and have tried just about every diet alteration/natural remedy in the book. Although I am a health freak, I decided on March 1st, 2016, that I would begin taking Accutane. I am doing this for the betterment of my communication and social skills, as I am going into the po
  9. Hello All! Welcome to my Doxycycline (100 mg) and Retin-A (.025%) log! I will try to update this as much as I can during the next few months, and I hope that at least one person on this website (which I am new to, woo hoo!) will find this useful. Background Information I am a 15 year old, teenage girl who has had acne since 5th grade. My acne started out pretty light, but as the years went by it got progressively worse. When I was 14 years old, my acne began to flare up so I visited my
  10. Hey guys! So first of all I have a little confession that I'd like to make. I'm already on day 40 of my Accutane journey so basically I'm going to start off this log with a basic summary about myself and of how the past 40 days have gone and then I will be regularly updating this log every couple of days, starting from today. Now for a little background info of myself. I'm an 18 year old Canadian male that has been suffering from mild/moderate acne since I was around 13-14 years old. But on top
  11. Hello everyone, I've never been one to log things or to write diaries but as I know friends who have taken accutane a few years back, no one seems able to remember their experience so well. All I remember is nose bleeds, the typical dry scabs either side of their lips and a really sweaty forehead in any mild heat. (This is still happening with a friend who ended their course over two years ago. So I decided I would like to document my journey in hope it may help someone else some day!
  12. Acne has ruined my life I have had acne since I was 12 years old I didn't really care when I was younger. I was on doxycycline on and off for 7 years it helped while I was on it but it wasn't the cure. I tried changing my diet no milk no sugar nothing help. I don't have any friends anymore because I don't like going out anymore.People thought I was really weird because I have social anxiety now it's because of acne. I don't have a job because every time I go for a interview I can't
  13. Hi to whoever is reading this. I am a 22 year old female who has been battling acne since the age of 13. My acne was only on my forehead and my back until I reached the age of 15, at which point it spread to my cheeks. After high school, it spread to all areas of my face, back and chest. However, the acne on my face has always been pretty "mild", while my back acne was moderate. Even though I technically have mild acne, it is extremely persistent and never fully goes away. It also scars my face
  14. Hey Guys, Today is my first day of a 5 month course of accutane. I will be taking 30mg per day for the first month and move up to 60mg after that. I'll give updates whenever I feel like it and i'll try to reply to everyone who comments.
  15. After staying clear on Yasmin for 2 years, my acne flared up worse than ever 5 months ago regardless of the fact I was still taking my Yasmin religiously. Two months ago (almost) the docs and a private dermatologist changed me over to Dianette due to the Yasmin working so well for me the first time, however these hormones were no longer right for me anymore. I decided to make a log of my progress due to finding the logs of Dianette on here so helpful to read whilst I was waiting for my pil
  16. I'm on my third week of Differin .1 + Clindamycin, and I thought I'd write about my experience so far, which has been... well, not good, not bad. I'm used to treatments either working immediately, or breaking me out to all hell (also immediately), so this has been a weird limbo experience for me. Week 1: (Used Differin .1 every third night, Clindamycin every morning and night.) Don't know if this was an initial breakout or just a reaction to a night of heavy drinking, but I somehow got a t
  17. Hello everyone! I'm unsure whether anyone will be interested in actually reading my log but if not, it'll be useful for me anyways! It's still early days, I'm only about a month and a half into my accutane course so I haven't logged since day one which sucks but better late than never, right?! I absolutely love this community because it has helped me so much in the past and I know what it's like to google things every 10-20 minutes and land yourself on this website reading if someone else is
  18. So I started Tazorac and Doxycycline about a week ago. I have moderate acne that's persistent. I'm going to be posting logs week by week and before and after pictures. In the morning I wash my face with cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer and use that at night and then apply my tazorac. I am taking Doxy usually in the afternoon. I'm using the Tazorac Cream .05% and Doxy 150mg. Let's hope for clear skin!
  19. Hey guy's I'm finally on my 5th month and "1 more to go!" phewww... sure feel's good. Here is my story for you ladies and gentlemen. I'm just an everyday normal teenager who came across getting spots in year '6' and it progressed throughout the years to acne. Life went down hill I suffered deep depression, lack of self confidence I would hate to see my self in the mirror I would cry in mornings and bunk of school faking to be ill for days on end. I was always shy and felt as if
  20. Starting Roaccutane at 30mg a day. I've had moderate acne for some years now, although at times it has become cystic. I've started to get scars, which is a bit of a shame. After lurking these forums for a while, I found out about Roaccutane and managed to get some from my dermatologist. I had been on the antibiotics for three years previously to this, so my consultation was pretty easy. I had my blood tests then and there and had the stuff by the next day. Day 1 is as in the thumbnail, it lo
  21. Background Story On My Acne To start, my face is definitely not clear but it is not severe acne with cysts. My forehead, upperlip and cheeks are filled with small tiny bumps coupled with approximately 15% cysts. My entire right cheek and nose is filled with blackheads that are obvious. I have no clear spots on my face and my chin has a few bumps too. I did the acne.org regimen but it did not help as soon as I went under stress. (national exams in 2 weeks) Basically, I had acne since I
  22. Hey this is my first log which i will probably update every once in a while So im 16 years old at the moment, had acne since i was probably 12 and it has recently (this year) gotten pretty bad and irritating, with the cystic type popping up. I have tried many antibiotics which didnt really solve the problem but maybe kept it at bay for a while. Heres my cheek from a few weeks ago for reference. http://i.imgur.com/nkQMVHo.jpg I have been on doxy for about a month now but i decided it was
  23. Evening everyone. Having read many logs over the years I thought it would be good to share my ongoing experience of Isotretinion (accutane) this time round (second course). I was prescribed accutane four years ago (aged 19), it worked wonders for my skin and completely changed me. Four years on my acne has slowly crept back - although not to the extent of my teenage years! Now aged 23 I have now embarked on my second course (starting today), 40mg for the first eight weeks. What I wanted t
  24. Hi everyone! I'm making this log so I can keep a record of my quest for clear(er) skin. All replies, suggestions, etc. are highly encouraged. Let's hope my skin improves the way I hope it to!
