    Week Four

    Week four on Spiro/Retin-A! My intial breakout is finally coming to an end! The cysts I had are starting to heal and I haven't gotten any new ones since last week. I still have a lot of clogged pores and blackheads in my t-zone but they're starting to clear up as well. I have yet to notice a reduction in oil though. My skin is still very oily in my t-zone. For the side effects of spironolactone, I am not urinating as much as I did at the start, but still a bit more than usual. That's it for now
  2. I'm 19 and I have been battling acne for the past five years or so. Like most my skin dips up and down constantly, some years are worse than others. This past year I had a flare up, and so I went back to Retin-A. While that did help my skin a lot, I was still left with pretty tough and extreme breakouts right before my period. In an effort to combat this, my doctor suggested Birth Control. Took Levlen for a month and that screwed up my stomach so I stopped. Then I started Microgestin Fe 1/20, wh
  3. Just went to a doctor and he says it looks like I'm suffering from an allergic reaction due to either retin-a or clindamycin. He reccomended I stop using both medications. Benadryl and prednisone for a few days in order to control the itching on my neck and wrists! I found out in deficient in vitamin D and many have said these supplements greatly helped their acne so here I go! Just purchased vitamin d3 with calcium. Working on changing my diet as well

    Am I allergic ??

    Since I've been on this regimen I've had a rash on my wrist which I think came from sleeping on my arms and it hasn't gone away (started 7 weeks ago) I am constantly itchy and my neck is still breaking out itchy even though I don't apply any medicines to that area.. Debating if I should stop using...

    6 week update

    6 weeks on retin-a and clindamycin regimen.. Not working keep breaking out next to my nose and cheek area. The weather is getting warmer and I have to hide inside the house since sun exposure is not recommended on this medicatio. This better be worth it because boy am I getting depressed from sitting in...
  6. I've been using retin-a 0.05% until 6 weeks ago, but nothing has changed. Still a lot of red marks (that is the most important problem to solve, because I have 90% red marks) and still some occasional pimples. I'm not using Benzoyl peroxide 5% anymore (it's the second weeks that I don't use it) because maybe it could prolong red marks. I still use Benzoyl peroxide 1% cleanser to wash my face the morning and the night. I apply the moisturizer once a day (bioderma's sebium hydra). I'm asking my
  7. Hello lovelies, So...remember when I said that so far I had zero redness or irritation from using Retin-A micro 0.04%? WELL. Watch me now eat my words. The first three days were lovely. My skin was happy, normal colour, normal texture. I got five new pimples in those three days. Completely normal. BUT THEN... I watched my skin turn from a pale tan colour to a tomato red. It became tight. Very, very, very tight. You know those clear gel masks you put on that dry and then you peel them

    Intro

    Background: I am 33 years old and have been struggling with some form of acne for as long as I can remember. I have a family history of acne on both sides. My Mother's acne was a mild form and was cystic in nature, but well managed with birth control and antibiotics. She was/is beautiful and I really never noticed she had a problem. She said it finally subsided when she went through menopause. My Father is in his 60's and still has blackheads and enlarged pores on his nose and consistently

    Today I'm sharing my tried-and-true methods for cleansing and moisturizing dry sensitive skin and how I go from the dull itchy and tired-looking face I wake up with to borderline presentable without makeup-- All thanks to the best natural ingredients and a cutting-edge beauty routine, including the Jenu Plus Ultrasonic Infuser, YoDerm, & derma|e.

  13. From the album: retin-a micro: worth the wait? I took a picture of my face every week for 4 months

    When I first started writing this post at the beginning of the summer, I was in the throes of the initial breakout caused by starting topical retinoids. Hyper-keratinized plugs and god-knows-what-else built up in my pores, and now the retinoid was forcing it out. My face erupted in multiple places with huge, swollen bumps. As each lesion resolved, 2or 3 new ones would begin forming on skin still red and tender from the previous weeks breakout. The only thing keeping me sane was this: I have a pr

  14. From the album: retin-a micro: worth the wait? I took a picture of my face every week for 4 months

    Other than the one bright red spot on my right cheek where I foolishly picked and squeezed, the doxycycline has really brought a lot of the inflammation down. There's still a lot of closed comedones to purge, but if my previous breakout is any indication, the worst is soon to be over. -- When I first started writing this post at the beginning of the summer, I was in the throes of the initial breakout caused by starting topical retinoids.

  16. Hello All! Welcome to my Doxycycline (100 mg) and Retin-A (.025%) log! I will try to update this as much as I can during the next few months, and I hope that at least one person on this website (which I am new to, woo hoo!) will find this useful. Background Information I am a 15 year old, teenage girl who has had acne since 5th grade. My acne started out pretty light, but as the years went by it got progressively worse. When I was 14 years old, my acne began to flare up so I visited my
  17. Hiya people! Was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with both Dermarolling and Salicylic Acid Peels to fade shallow acne scarring? I've had "moderate" acne for 3-4 years now! Approaching 20 in two months time so I know how much of a pain acne can be. Not just a pain in the bum, but it has literally wrecked my self-esteem to the point I've isolated myself behind the glow of my computer screen frantically searching the net for a glimmer of hope when it comes to removing these dr
  18. I am a 16 year old female that has battled with all-around acne since 7th grade (blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, etc). I would probably consider my face either oily or combination skin because I get really oily in my T-zone but sometimes I get dry skin around my lower cheeks, chin, and mouth. I'd consider my acne to be mild-moderate because I have quit a few small pimples with no heads on my forehead, a few with heads, probably around one cyst every two months (small cysts), blackheads ALL on my
  19. Hi guys. I am happy to say that I have had my acne under control now for almost 2 years!! to do this I have been using retin-a micro 1% once a day (now once every other day) and just cetaphyl as face wash. But I am now having concerns over this small bump (now two bumps) that has been on my skin for almost a year. It's skin color, painless, and has no "feeling" to it. Honestly I wouldn't even know it was there if the pores were not gone. Now I have developed what seems to be the same bump in a d
  20. Hi everyone. I have been a constant cruiser of these boards for years and have finally decided to reach out for myself and everyone else going through the living hell of acne. A little about my history with acne... I never had acne growing up, just the occasional breakout or small pimple that would go away in a day. During my teen and high school years I was a ballerina and constantly wore makeup to class where I would be drenched in sweat. I'd then come home and work another few hours, ex
  21. Hello all, So about a year ago today my face was completely smooth with an occasional pimple. I had taken accutane in HS and it had kept me clear for about 7 years. I started my first real job and had some breakouts. I would say I controlled popped 20 or so with a needle, definitely a mistake in hindsight and I will admit to that. Anyways, The derm prescribed me retin-a somewhat blindly and I used retin-a for about 3 months. Definitely may have overused it a few times but mostly did what
  22. I'm on my 15th week of retina-a 0.05 and what was once hundreds of small under the skin bumps on my forehead are now around 50 under the skin bumps, so thats ok. But the biggest problem is that i am randomly breaking out in big red pimples. Where i get about 7 in a row, which disappear after 2 weeks and then come back later. Should i still be purging? I never used to break out in inflamed, large bumps before, when should i call it quits?
  23. Hello acne.org, Does anyone else have enlarged pores/appearance of larger pores from using Tretinoin or any other retinol?
