  1. First of all.. I'm new here! I hope I'm not repeating anyone! I'm 17 and I've never really had an acne problem.. just a blemish here and there. Recently though I've been breaking out a lot more, it's still mild though, nothing severe, mostly on my forehead and chin.. sometimes on my cheeks. I eat completely clean and drink a lot of water so this didn't really make much sense. I went to a dermatologist and she gave me this regimen: Morning: Wash Cerave AM lotion Effaclar Duo (thin lay
  2. So my last login was from November of 2013.... Now I'm back. This time to offer some help, advice, and insight. I'm going to spend a decent amount of time writing this - so I hope someone reads this and finds it helpful. So November of 2013, a junior in college. University of Tampa - where everyone is near perfect. Suffering from acne. Taking a cab to my dermatologist appointment. Same visit per usual - quick glance at my skin and an increase in dosage of my doxycycline. I leave extremely
  3. Hi there! I need some advice. After trying a new aesthetician (From Head to Toe 7466 Beverly Blvd, LA, CA), my skin broke out in the worst way possible. I now have these gross, skin colored bumps all over my forehead & jaw that I don't really see as much as feel. They become visible when my skin is stretched though (like when I open my mouth, etc). I bought mandelic acid serum 10% from MUAC and mandelic acid toner 5%, which I had used for about two weeks. However, out of desperation, I als
  4. Warning: This is a long post. I wrote this post to talk about my skin journey and to show others that it does get better! It is a long post, and is very detailed in order to help people get an understanding of this treatment route and the effects of it! Back Story Last year, I had been contemplating on taking accutane as a last resort to get rid of my stubborn acne. I had literally tried everything including OTC products containing BP and SA, LUSH products, proactiv,

    Just Began Accutane

    Hello all. I have just began taking Accutane (yesterday actually) and have found this site very helpful for advice and preparing myself for what is to come. A little bit about myself: female 23 years old acne began around 18 years old type of acne: moderate (and quite persistent) with occasional deep cysts have tried just about every antibiotic, cream, and wash available The plan is to update here throughout the treatment. For the time being, any past or present Accutane users have any tips or
  6. So when I first went to this dermatologist, I was prescribed to use an oral pill for acne, and Aczone. 3 months later, my face has gotten better after (mostly) regular usage of the oral pill and extremely infrequent usage of Aczone, as well as going dairy-free. I'm apprehensive if I should use Differin, becuase everything I've read so far says NOT to use on skin with eczema... Additionally, my skin has acne that's more on the light to mild side. My face isn't freaking out, and I don't have pus
  7. Hello I have been on accutane before (ordered online) and I was wondering how do I get prescribed accutane? Do I make an appointment with any dermatologist? And what are the chances of getting prescribed accutane? I'm 21 with my own health insurance but my parents live half way across the country so they can't help. Thanks!

  9. Just been prescirbed erythromycin-zinc cream for my skin. My first thought is that won't this cause antibiotic resistance in p.acnes? If so, will it come back worse than before once it stops working?
  10. I just wanted to give a quick update as I pass the 18-months post-Accutane mark! My skin is still VERY clear - I probably get about one very small pimple every month or 2, and it goes away COMPLETELY within 2 days. Again, it's very small - usually doesn't even develop to the stage of being a whitehead, and it's gone before I even really notice it. Here is a before and after pic: ALSO, I wanted to address some of the side effects that other users had/have been experiencing. I basica

    From the album: Epiduo

    A sequence of photos of my journey on Epiduo. First image was a really bad break out that left some terrible marks. It's what made me finally get help. I am just showing one cheek cause it's my worst side. My other cheek is about half as bad
  12. I want to try to incorporate the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel in to my pm routine but I’m not sure how because I use a prescription topical cream. Should I use it before Epiduo and let it dry? Here is my current routine: My current night routine: splash water on face 1. cleanse with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Splash off with water, pat dry skin but leave damp 2. Apply Epiduo 3. WAit 10 minutes 4. Apply Cerave Moisturizing Lotion

    Day 41!

    So im like really starting to clear up now. My skin is flaky and my lips are peeling and its gross because my friend actually said something about it to me. I use lots of lip balm too. I use a stereroid lip balm 3-4 times a week as directed by my dermatologist. It only seems to help when its actually on my lips. I only have a few very small zits on my face. There are alot of red marks though and they will take time to heal. I use the Olay Pro-X cleansing brush and I think it works better t

    When my acne was at its worst..

    From the album: How I battled my acne..

    Going into my teenage years/into puberty I never had acne, I only really had the occasional pimple which I still freaked out about because I always thought it was the end of the world. However at the start of 2012, it started to slowly form on my chin in which I totally freaked out and I started using so many products and trying everything on it which I didn't know at the time, was just making it worse. Gradually my acne just kept getting worse and worse and it started spreading to other parts o
  15. Hello, I have a really silly question but, how do you get it? I am hoping to get prescribed Accutane by my dermatologist tomorrow, so I was wondering how the process works for us male types because all I can find on here is how it works for the ladies.. haha. I know you have to get a blood test and all that, but I am hoping to start the regimen as soon as possible, so when would I actually start taking the dosages? Thanks so much guys, y'all rock and I hope everyone's acne stays away forever
  16. I never really had any problems with my skin until last year when I broke out on my chin and jawline with mild acne. I had a lot of pimples and whiteheads, but thankfully no cysts, however my skin was still a spotty red mess. I went to my GP who prescribed me Duac Once Daily Gel, which cleared me in about a month. I was happy. I still had the occasional break out and whiteheads but generally my skin was fine, a little uneven but fine. So I stopped with the Duac and went about life. On a few occa
  17. Hey all! Used to suffer from terrible acne when I was like 16-17..absolutely nothing worked apart from Roaccutane! After the 9 months on it (starting from 20mg and finishing on 70mg) my skin was flawless! Apart from a tiny bit of red marks from the cysts. About a month off it I noticed I was getting little red pimples on my face which seemed to get worse and worse.. (nothing major but it was enough to see and reduce my confidence) so I went back to my derm and she put me on second course of 80mg
  18. It seems like these forums are infected by negative accutane stories. I get it, some people want to share their negative side effects and see if others are experiencing the same thing and sometimes they want to warn others of potential side effects. I think people need hope and need to stop focusing and worrying on side effects that could occur. We want to hear about people who have been off this product for a long time and are doing great. Of course these people who are doing great usually do

    First 7 weeks

    Week 1-3: So I started out like a lot of other people thinking that I could apply Epiduo twice a day and get quicker results and boy was I wrong. My face burned so badly and itched like crazy these first few weeks. I experienced TERRIBLE peeling and flaking which was highlighted by make up. But there was no way in HELL I was going out in public without make up to at least cover the redness. So after about a week and a half of applying the cream twice a day I went down to just at night and I was
  20. Hi! So I have been taking Lymecycline for just over two months now, it has worked wonders for my skin but I feel extremely nauseous for a few hours after taking it, I take it at night before I sleep for that reason. Recently I started my latest prescription of the antibiotic and have lost ALL of my appetite which is unusual for me, I love food, have a healthy relationship with food and eat everything put in front of me but in the last week I can't think of meals without feeling ill. I can'
  21. Hello! I have been taking 100 MG of Doxycycline once a day for one month, yet today when I got a refill I realized I am supposed to be taking 100 MG twice a day. Will I have another initial breakout if I increase my dosage to 100 MG twice a day? My skin has not improved much since I started and I assumed that was because it took time, but would a higher dosage help or make it worse? Additional information: I am female, 18 years old, and use Differn 0.3% at night. Any suggestions are app
  22. Hey there, I went to my dermatology appointment today at Harley Street Dermatology Clinic. Very fancy I know! Anyway, my doctor was really great and she answered all my questions. I am still very unsure of the link between digestive system and skin but that is another blog for another day. So, she said I am doing all the right things using non-comedogenic moisturisers and cleansers (Cetaphil) and said to stay away from anything that could potentially irritate the skin so that includes any sc

    Going private - Accutane

    A Bit About My Acne: I started getting mild acne at the age of 13; as I got older I started getting under the skin cysts and my acne became more moderate. I’m 20 now and my acne severity has lessened with the help of the pill and creams, although my skin is still not where I would like it to be. My First Dermatology Appointment: After a bad break out last month I begged my Doctor to refer me to a dermatologist. The waiting list in my area to see a dermatologist is 8 months, so I ended up
  24. Hello all! I’m brand new to this site but I’ve read different forums on here for years. This upcoming Wednesday I’ll be meeting back with my dermatologist to discuss Accutane and hopefully get prescribed it. It’s unfortunate that it’s come to this however I’ve done everything I can up until this point. Though Accutane is sometimes frowned upon I’m excited to start this journey and hopefully never really have to deal with acne again after this. Let me give you a quick backstory before I hopefully

    Swap Out!?

    Hey guys first time poster here. Just wondering if those that are following the regimen have forgone using their pprescription to follow the guide. If so should i start that? Me; I have severe body acne and severe face acne, I dont eat as healthily as I'd like to but im making the change. Also I have been on and off my medication which has probably just made it worse. I am on tetracycline and duac gel and have been for the past 2-3 years + and sometimes my spots are non exsistant but most
