  1. I wanted to share my story and struggle with acne in the hope other people can relate and share their advice, including any information they may have found that could help. Long story short, I began to suddenly suffer with severe acne two years ago - unsure and frustrated with why this suddenly occurred I was put on a 4 month prescription of Accutane or Roaccutane depending where you're from. The accutane helped, it cleared my skin significantly and didn't damage my liver etc. 1 year later
  2. I bet I am one of many people who will say that they have tried almost everything to clear their acne including supplements, prescriptions, products and treatments. So, I started The Regimen on the evening of 10-11-14. I am following the instructions exactly as stated. I can honestly say that the cystic and standard acne has dramatically decreased and any new acne seems come and go much quicker than before. However, I am experiencing some discomfort other than being dry and mildly peelin
  3. Wanted to update my forum post () with a blog which is the direction I want to take the post since I'm currently in the "experimentation" process. I was motivated to do this blog to help other people who are trying to find alternative treatments to BP as I know how frustrating it can be to find new a regimen after one has been working so well. Currrently, i'm trying a new regimen as I found that using salicylic acid wash (neutrogena oil free wash) and aha (dan's brand) resulted in many closed co
  4. Does this medication cause increased sensitivity to the sun and/or prevent one from tanning?
  5. Could anyone please help with identifying what could be the root problem for my acne? I'm male, 27 years old, acne since puberty. Around nose, mouth and on scalp. I have something opposite of cystic acne, pimples mostly show up on outer layer of skin. Of all the tests I'v taken and doctors visited, only IgG4 food sensitivity panel show up that there's something wrong with me. High sensitivity to grains and gluten, dairy, few fruits and veggies. But as weird as it sounds, most of the time it
  6. So when I was 16, I decided to find the root cause of my acne. I was convinced it was masturbation within my first two weeks of self testing. So all the way up until I was almost 18, I was tormenting myself trying not to masturbate. I broke down and masturbated a lot. When I was 18, I researched, and remembered my severely unhealthy diet I had when I was little. Then I remembered how acne came when I was 11. It turned cystic when I was 12 and started masturbating, which is what threw me of
  7. So if you read my last entry-I had a decent breakout and since I lost my lovely tan from the summer, my skin is pale and the marks are more noticable. I'm so relieved to have the breakout subside but I hate the red marks just at much as the bump itself. Anyways a few years ago I did a series of lactic acid chemical peels to fade my PIH (post inflammatory pigmentation) from an acne breakout. I did one peel a week for 6 treatments - so 6 weeks and it made an amazing difference. So I am tap
  8. Heyyo, I'm new to this forum but joined because I'm having some serious issues getting my skin under control, and need some advice if possible? I used to use a ton of things on my face, alcohols, BP, Salicylic Acid, you name it, sometimes all at once, and other times switching products very frequently (I had mild-moderate acne as a teen). As you can probably guess, my skin didn't like that and ever since trying products I've always had issues. After I stopped wearing makeup entirely and
  9. I am starting to wonder if citrus fruits have any affect on my acne. After I had some OJ, I woke up the next day with a pimple. Is there a difference between citrus and citric acid for acne? I found a chart of foods with the highest citric acid, but haven't found any with the highest citrus content. Does anyone have a chart for this? One fruit I am wondering about is raspberry. It has a pretty high citric acid content, but is not a citrus fruit.
  10. This was brought up before, but I couldn't find any definitive and updated answers as to what the best way of testing for food allergies AND intolerances is, and what the options are for people living in the US in terms of service provides/ companies etc. I just found out that my insurance can cover most of the costs for allergy testing, so I figured I might as well get tested but I would also like to test for intolerances. I have tried several elimination diets, but I suspect that my biggest in
  11. I have a problem NO dermatologist has been able to help me with...so I'm hoping someone on here will be able to share my experience and lend some help! I've had clear skin all through my teens; nothing more than a few tiny clogged pores. I'm 20 now and my skin is acting VERY strange. It started in May/March with these little raised pink bumps on my chest/back/forehead. They'd ALWAYS itch and my doctor thought it might be Staph, so I went on Keflex. Which didn't really do much. However, shor
  12. hey! (typing on broken tablet, will fix post later) so i was thinking about how my body only want to accept foods high in fiber, according to my sensitivity test results (fiber helps you shit more efficiently). then i remember a visit to the doctor here i found out i had chronic constipation. basically i had shit laying around my body for years. this made sens
  13. First of all, thank you so much for shipping my order so fast, I'm beyond happy! I've been using other BP gels prescribed by the doctor which are 5% concentrated. I did get a reaction when I first started, however, it went away after a few weeks of use. Now, I've tried the acne.org BP after receiving it and first impression was that the smell was super strong and although I applied tiny amounts it stung my eyes as it happens when cutting onions. Secondly, not only my eyes got a bit swollen and
  14. I NEED HELP! Everything I have put on my face thus far has been burning so badly. I have never really had acne problems, I don't exfoliate regularly at all (maybe just to scrub off stubborn makeup once in awhile). It's not really a product I've been using regularly, the Only thing I use is Epiduo Forte for when I get a slight breakout here and there that my dermatologist recommended (I only put it on the affected area). I have been trying the ultra repair cream (burns like hell). I've tried no
  15. Hey guys, need help! If you don't wanna read my messed up story, skip to the bottom questions. So I got a prick test for food allergies/sensitivities. the doctor was pissed off cuz he said he didn't think food had anything to do with my health issues. The results came back and I was right. He was still mean about it. So the results said i was highly sensitive to soy and a lot of other stuff. It said I was barely sensitive to eggs and not sensitive at all to oats. I ate eggs and oats
  16. I used hibiclens to wash my face after an awful cystic breakout all over my face and didn't use any moisturiziation so the wash could kill the bacteria. I'd leave the hibiclens on for sometimes up to an hour a couple times a day. it worked but now even three months after stopping I'm left with red clogged skin that reacts to EVERYTHING I don't know what to do. my nose is especially bad... it's so oily and red and bumpy irritated looking. I'm only washing with water and using olay deep hydration
