    First Update

    Ok! So a brief history. I was a late bloomer with acne, it started getting bad my senior year of high school and peaked my freshman year of college. I had pimples all over my face, mostly on my cheeks, around my mouth, and my chin. They were those nice inflammed suckers with a white head you just want to pop. I assume the stress of going away to college had alot to do with it but I was a mess, and had a ton of scars. I started retina around november that year as a last ditch effort. My doctor ha

    Retin-A Users

    I am wondering what the effect of Retin-a has been on your scars? I have read that it can make atrophic scars look worse, as it thins the top layer revealing more scar, which makes sense. I've been using RAM for a couple weeks and the last few days I felt that this might be happening. It may be that I lost a couple pounds, or because I was staying at my parents' house with different lighting - but I'm afraid it might be the RAM. So I am wondering if this is a permanent effect, or if I continue t
  3. 12 Week update: A couple of weeks ago I started using Cerave moisturizing cream (the one in the big tub). My skin was so dry I was putting on two thick layers before going to bed at night and one more in the morning. I stopped using aloe and any of the oils because honestly I just felt like they were making my breakouts worse. In terms of dryness and peeling the Cerave cream saved my face. It moisturized in a way nothing else I have tried has, better than coconut oil, aveeno, or the regular Cera
  4. Day 46- Retin A oh the struggle. I have been using my retin a everyday for over two weeks and damn is my skin peeling. I am the human snake. It is not particularly red or irritated looking but I wake up with flakes, scrub them all off, moisturize, put on light make up. By mid afternoon my skin looks alittle dry and my make up looks alittle uneven and by nighttime you can tell the entire top layer of my skin is flaking off and shedding. My skin is cycling unbelievably fast, I cannot understand ho
  5. I have been on Differin forever, switching around with .1 and .3 depending on how my skin was reacting. I can now say it is just not doing the job to control my acne. I used RAM .1 last night for the first time. I am wondering if anyone has had success switching to Retin-a after not doing so well with Differin? Also, should I expect an IB since I have already been on Differin forever? I am hoping that will prevent a serious IB since retinoids aren't a new thing. I also never had one with Differi

    Giving Up On Retin-A Micro

    It has been 2 months and 20 days since I started using RAM .04%. I have seen no improvement whatsoever. I was prescribed this due to my severely oily skin, blackheads, and mild acne. Every single pore on my nose and forehead is clogged. Oil oozes out of every pore about 15-20 minutes after I wash my face. I have to blot twice an hour. Why am I quitting on RAM? Because it has made my oily skin WORSE. It has made my skin about 50% oilier than it used to be. I have been suffering with RAM for so
  7. So my skin was looking shitty, but in the past two weeks it has really turned a corner. I went back to my derm who agreed that for 13 weeks for retina my skin looked pretty terrible. He highly recommended my starting accutane, but after three months of side effects I wanted to stick with the retin a for three more months before quitting, hell maybe my skin would get better and I could avoid accutane. He changed my retin a from a .1% gel to a .05% cream and wrote me a perscription for doxycycline
  8. Hi all! Totally new here and figured I'd start off documenting my Minocycline+RAM+Diane 35 BC regime. I started developing acne at 21. I just recently turned 22 on the 5th of December. My acne started in early October after NEVER having had acne before at all. It started off with a small patch on the right side of my face of these cystic zits. They were SOOO itchy so I would itch and itch until it started to spread ALL over my cheek. It started to really freak me out because I had no idea wh
