  1. Hello, I have been on a course of accutane before when I was 17 and it helped the severity of my acne but now at the age of 21 I still have very oily skin and mild/moderate breakouts around cheeks/nose/chin/neck a lot. If I paid for a private derm would he put me on second course of accutane, maybe a low dosage course? Please help me I hate looking in mirrors, I need something doing
  2. I'm a 46-year-old male who has struggled with acne since age 14. Like you, I tried everything under the sun (and sometimes over it) to get my acne under control. Well one month ago I finally succeeded. Two months ago I saw my regular doctor for prostate-related symptoms I was experiencing. He recommended I try supplementing with Saw Palmetto to see if it would assist. Well, it did. And in more ways than I anticipated. Saw Palmetto helps reduce the amount of DHT produced in your body. DHT can be
  3. Okay well, I've been on Accutane (Roaccutane for me cause I'm in Ireland) for 18 days now and I decided to make a log for people who are considering going on the drug or that are on the drug and what to get tips or info that I can give! So anyways, I'm a 19 year old male and I've had oily skin and acne since I was like 13/14. I got really bad acne including nodules and really oily skin, so oily people would comment on it sometimes! I tried many oral and topical treatments to try get rid of my
  4. Hey guys, This is my first ever post on here, but I've followed the forum for awhile. So I've had acne roughly since fall of 2009 when I was 16. Before that I had completely clear skin... literally never one blemish so I guess I was a late bloomer. Also, I hit puberty later than most of my friends. It probably peaked in severity in 2012-eary 2013 when I was a senior in high school and freshman in college. In January of 2013 I went to the dermatologist for the first time and got Epiduo,

    Skin Care Set For Male Acne?

    Hi Guys! So I joined this site for myself to get some insight as how to treat my light acne. Thankfully, I got that under control now. However, my boyfriend has been breaking out lately and I can tell he is feeling insecure about his skin. I love him so much and want him to feel as handsome as I see him. Having struggled with acne myself, I know how depressing it can be to look in the mirror and see a face full of pimples. So I have come here to ask for help. I let him borrow some of my prod
  6. Looking for some advice on accutane. I am a 27 year old male. Have mild acne 1-2 pimples a week at most, nothing cystic at all. However, it comes and it goes and all the other treatments do treat it and it gets better. However, it comes back. BP seems to work the best. I have tried everything though, you name it. I have had it for 10 years. But again it's mild. Sometimes I don't get a zit for a few weeks, I know it could be worse believe me, but it does really bother me like everyone else. I wen

    36 Yo Male Needs Advice!

    I, unfortunately like so many others, have been dealing with acne for the better part of my life. My acne has gotten much worse over the past three years after starting a job which is more stressful than my last. I can't even remember what it's like to have clear skin anymore, at all times it seems like I have multiple pimples, most of them cystic around my mouth, chin and nose area. Some of them are strange too with no pain and unresponsive to cortisone shorts. I'm hoping that someone out there
  8. Hey guys, So it's my first post on this website, although I have been following the forum for awhile. So I've had acne since the fall of 2009, when I was 16. It probably peaked in severity around age 18-19 during my senior year of high school and freshman year of college (2012-early 2013). In January of 2013 I finally went to the dermatologist and got acanya for night, epiduo for day, and doxycycline 150mg once a day. I went off doxy after 3 monthes but continued topicals and I saw some signif
  9. Hello everyone, my names Nick and I have severe acne. It's honestly embarrassing, almost none of the other kids at my school has it and I hate it. I've had acne since I was around 12, and ever since then it just won't go away. Now I'm 16 , I've tried everything from benzoyl peroxide to just regular warm water regimens. The areas affected by acne are only on my face (thank god). Currently I am using neutrogena stubborn acne treatment, once when I get ready for bed and then again when I wa
  10. If you're male and have acne you may have overlooked a few reason your acne persists. Your acne will most likely never go away if you aren't targeting your Acne Signaling System - the central point of acne initiation, where it all begins I'm going to guess it's pretty damn frustrating to be a grown man with zits!? Not so hot right! This can definitely be a source of insecurity and depression. You're feeling unattractive and maybe aren't comfortable being as socially active as you want

    Please Help! At My Wits End!

    Like many users on here, I have tried everything but to no avail. I am too afraid to try Accutane but am experimenting with light therapy. Every year is worse. Sure some months are better than others but prolonged acne just leads to more and more scarring - physically and emotionally. Even if today I had no more painful cysts, I would still be challenged with removing and fading years of subtle acne scars. Beyond that I feel as if acne has transformed me into a very paralyzed, anxious, and all a
