  1. I'm 19 years old, and I've been struggling with acne since 7th grade. It's September now and last March I finally got fed up enough with being ashamed of my face's breakouts (including all of acne scars) and went to the dermo. My doctor gave me adapalene .03% (off brand diferin) and climdamycin phosphate 1% pads. After about a 7 weeks of using that with little change, I went back to her and she prescribed aczone along with it. Another 7 weeks went by still with bad break outs. She added the ora
  2. So I'm 18 weeks pregnant with hormonal acne from PCOS & had to stop spironolactone obviously (although this is truly the best medication for hormonal acne! I weighed 125 while on and was taking 100mg... ). Now I'm using benzoyl peroxide 2% along with proactive, as well as tea tree oil and it's not working!

Since late April, I've been breaking out HORRIBLY, which is completely whack since my skin had been flawless for a good three years after I had started on Minocycline, and still am on it. I was not premenstrual when the first worse breakout happened at this point, and when I am premenstrual, I get one or two whiteheads, but these were full blown red pustules. The breakouts didn't stop and got worse. I ended up coming off birth c

I have also cut dairy out of my diet for the most part as I realized that my childhood milk allergy has been creeping up on me. (I am also a vegetarian) I started to see results, however, my dermatologist prescribed me Spiro 25 mg because he saw a "hormonal element" to my acne, which I can totally
  5. this is my first blog/post on this site so sorry in advance if im doing it wrong haha, but i would really appreciate some help here! I have had acne for about 4-5 years, ever since i started puberty (im 18 now), and for the past two years it has more or less localized to my jawline as well as the sides of my chin/lower face. I have a history of having MRSA, i only got one infection on my knee from a locker room, and i was prescribed bactrim ds. Several months later, i had some type of boil on my
