    It's A Long Story...

    Isn't that what we tell all the dermatologists who we see, now? "Sooo, it all started when..." blah blah blah. So my story sounds a lot like what I've already heard so many times on this site. I'm 25, female, and have battled acne on and off since middle school. In high school, proactiv controlled it somewhat so that it was manageable. But my freshman year in college my periods went crazy, I got ovarian cysts, and my skin opened up a can of whop ass on me. Proactiv was no match for th
  2. I am desperate for any advice and help. Long story short, I've had bad cystic acne since I was about 14 or 15 years old. I'm talking about the deep, under the skin, extremely painful, pimples all over my face. I have tried literally everything. I've been on rounds and rounds of several different oral antibiotics that seem to work temporarily until I become immune to them. I have been on oral birth control twice which seemed to only worsen my acne. My mother is an esthetician so I have had all
  3. I am 42..... Never had acne until I had testosterone pellets inserted 3 1/2 months ago. I am currently taking: bactrim 400mg per day ( 1/2 a pill) Spirolatone 50 mg. saw palmetto, spearmint tea Topicals. Clindamycin/benzoyle peroxide Has any one ever experienced this??? If so does it, the acne, go away when pellets wear off????
  4. I have been on 50 mg a day for 3 1/2 months and was on bactrim for 2 months...... Things seemed to be clearing up but not totally. I stopped bactrim 2 weeks ago. Today I woke up with 5 huge pimples. Went to deem who gave me 5 huge injections and put me back on bactrim. She also wants to up my spiro to 100 mg. help!!!!!!!!!!!! Should I do it and will I purge again????? What if I increase it gradually? Like reverse weaning. Advise please!!!!!! I'm 43 this week this is the last thing I want

    My Skincare Routine!

    Whadup skincare routine! I thought I'd share with you my skincare routine (for both morning and evening) in the hope it can help you guys out there who are still suffering from that bastard we all know as acne. So, on we go: Morning LUSH Coalface Cleanser - I use this with an exfoliating pad I bought from Target. I cut little pieces off the block of cleanser and work it into a lather with my hands. I then apply to my face, wet the exfoliating pad, and "buff" the cleanser into my skin.

    Regimen And Retin A?

    Hey guys! Sorry for the long intro, but I feel like I need to explain everything in order to get proper advice: So, I'm pretty new to the Regimen, and I'm still working a lot of the details out. I've always had a few breakouts here and there since I was 16, which I used to use a drying lotion on. I also used to use a lot of comedogenic liquid foundations back then (potential cause of acne?). Now I'm 19, and I've had pretty bad comedonal acne for almost a year. It felt like it came out o
  7. over a month ago i was put on tretinion (retin a) to treat my acne. so far so good. my dermatologist then put me on a benzoyl peroxide cream to put on in the mornings-along with the retin a at night that i wash off in the morning. after getting put on the bp my face burns after i put on moisturizer. i normally use a cetaphil oil free one and even before the bp it would burn a little but now it the burn stays all day. whenever my skin gets really dry and gets flakey ill use one from lush that yes
  8. So my doctor just prescribed me Cilest for my acne. Im 18 and would say I have moderate acne (about 7 spots on my face at one time with a lot of hyperpigmentation) so its not great, but in my 5 years of having bad skin, lets just say its been worse. The reason Im so undecided about starting on cilest is because I've been on dianette before (2 years ago) and had a difficult time. The first 6 months were HELL (hands down the worst 6 months of my life), my skin got sooooo much worse than it was,
  9. So last year I started using medications such as cladymc.... i don't know how to spell it and epiduo to put on at night which were prescribed to me by my dermatologist... and I haven't even seen the Dr. Ever since I was prescribed medication... And now the medications are out of re-fills so I can't get anymore and they work so good on my skin! I used to have extremely severe acne and I'm a 14 yr old girl... what products do you recommend over the counter moisturizers because I already have a cle

    Will Accutane Work For Me? 23/m

    Hi everybody, I've been coming to this site for awhile now, but this is the first time I have ever posted something. I've read alot about different acne treatments on this site and have tried a bunch of them, but nothing ever seems to work. I've been suffering from moderate acne since I was 16. And with any treatment I've done, the best I can get is managed acne, I haven't had a day of clear skin since I was 15 or 16. I've been on some variation of prescription washes, gels, or creams for
  12. Hello, I'm new here and I made this account because I just need some support. I've been dealing with acne ever since Elementary school, and I've just never really had clear skin. Whenever I go to the doctor and get a prescription I never use it because I either think it won't work or I forget or whichever. I guess because I've had acne for so long I've started to think it's uncurable or will just never go away. I wasn't sure which category to post this in so forgive me if I'm wrong. Recently
  13. Hi guys, I've struggled with adult acne for about 2 years (I'm 22). I've had 2 major breakouts. The first took me almost a full year to get under control/get rid of through the use of minocyclin. My second breakout came this past July. My body became immune to the minocyclin, so I was put on Epiduo and Yaz. I'm still in the midst of this breakout. I'm not experiencing any new cysts (my acne is on my cheeks) but still major redness all over (in blotches) and at least 1-2 new whiteheads every
  14. My daughter (17 yrs old) completed her first round of accutane in January. Unfortunately her acne is slowly creeping back. It started in March with just a sprinkling of whilteheads on her forhead but became worse and spread to her cheeks. I took her to a new derm (we moved across the country so we had no choice) and he would not prescribe accutane again but rather Retin A Micro topical. We tried to explain that prior to accutane, she tried EVERYTHING...topicals as well as every class of antibiot
