  1. Hey guys, so i've started using this sod sulfacetamide 10 %, sulfur 5% wash for about a week & my skin has gotten way worse. I had maybe four bumps before using it, now I have about 11! I don't want to stop using it if its just an initial breakout, but I couldn't find anything on initial breakouts on this and I don't want to continue using it if its not going to do anything good for my skin. Thanks !
  2. I read reviews about sodium sulfacetamide on this website. A good majority of users said that it has been very successful. However, no one has said how long they have been dependent upon it for. I just started using it today. Let's say, it clears up my face. How long do I have to use it? What are post sodium sulfacetamide regimens? Is sodium sulfacetamide good to use for the long-term? Edit: I asked my derm about this. Acne is just an on-going battle. If I'm not on sodium sulfacetamide,
  3. My routine consists of washing my face with Clenia in the morning and washing with Plexion at night. I was using Duac once daily in the evening, but unfortunately my skin is sensitive to BP so I had to stop using it. Instead of Duac, my dermatologist prescribed Klaron for me. He told me to apply it once in the morning and then once on the evening. I have only been using Klaron for about a week, but I have actually been getting a few more pimples since I started using Klaron. My question is,
  4. My doctor prescribes me Sodium Sulfacetamide for acne. How long it wills take Sodium Sulfacetamide clear up acne and dark spot.
  5. So for the past few weeks iv been using a product called Rosac Cream. I use that in the morning and retin a micro .1% at night. I used this combo like 2 years ago and worked really well, i dont know why i stopped. Rosac cream is 10% sodium sulfacetamide and 5% sulfur...It also has sunscreen in it! Another thing ive noticed is that is sort of moisturizes my skin. Before i put it on my face is dry and flaky (after washing my face with dans moisturizer), but that goes away once its on. Later
  6. Hi guys, just wondereing if someone can tell me if Klaron or something similar containing Sodium Sulfacetamide is available in the UK? Considering getting on it. Thanks very much, Tommy
  7. Well, I was wondering if i could just blot both on at once ( I just want to use the medications at night). If you were wondering rosac's 10% sodium sulfacetamide and 5% sulfur.
  8. my derm just prescribed me to take 2 100mg pills of minocycline...one in the mornin and one in the evening as well as applying 10% klaron lotion (which is sodium sulfacetamide, i think similar to tazorac). I am confident that the mino will help clear me up in a few months or so because my acne is only moderate, except over the last 1 1/2 months i have had pretty good success at limiting breakouts with dan's regimen. Nowhere near total clearing but only one or two new pimples a day. Should i cont
  9. Sulfur for Acne

    Topical application of sulfur has been used to treat various skin conditions since the time of Hippocrates (5thcentury BC). Since the 1960s, science has validated its effectiveness in treating acne, particularly when combined with other ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide. Sulfur is used to treat a variety of conditions, including acne, seborrheic dermatitis (scaly patches and red skin, usually on the scalp), rosacea, scabies, and fungal infections. It treats acne by shedding the outer layer of...

  11. I wanted to tell everyone about my results with my current regimen, and see if anyone can give advice from here. I tried a lot of things, including BP, clindamycin, doxycycline, tretinoin, differin, sulfur sulfacetamide wash, etc. This is what I've used for the last year: AM: Purpose Face Wash Duac Cerave Moisturizer (SPF) PM: Purpose Face Wash Differin Clindamycin Lotion Cerave Moisturizer Before: I started with moderate acne, and typically had ~10-15 active spots, with a mixture of whiteh
  12. Hi everyone! I don't usually do the whole forum scene but I think it will be therapeutic for me if I share my acne story. So here we are in 2015 and here's to a new year's resolution. I would like to be clear by my birthday in August and wishing that if I can't obtain that goal, to be clear by the end of 2015! I have oily skin to the point that I have to wash my glasses every night before I go to bed. I have had mild to moderate acne (I feel though as if I have severe) for more than 8 ye
  13. This is my current regimen that i started last week: Morning: Rosula Clarifying Face Wash (sulfur/sodium sulfacetamide) Differin Night: Rosula Wash again Duac (Clindamycin/benzoyl peroxide) my face is sensitive but my derm. prescribed these products even after i told him that. I just feel like 5 different chemicals (sodium, sulfur, differin, BP, clindamycin) is too harsh??? Should i stop using rosula face wash and just use a gentle cleanser??
  14. So the only difference between "Sodium Sulfacetamide"( as listed on the product ratings) and Plexion is that Plexion has 5% sulfur. I'm curious what does sulfur do for your skin?
  15. I just got an prescription for this and I was wondering if it is the same as klaron? Also I was wondering if you got any good result like everyone says, and does it work good in conjuncation with the TAZ cream .1%. Thanks
  16. Ok, so after waiting for almost 6 months I was finally able to see a derm. I wanted to go on accutane, but I guess my acne isn't bad enough. Anyway heres what he gave me: Clindamycin gel to be put on in the morning, and it isn't supposed to be washed off at all. A cream that is 10% sodium sulfacetamide and 5% sulfer to be put on at night. I'm also supposed to take 2 75mg minocycline capsules a day. He said to completley stop using BP, and i dont think I've got at least a week w/o BP
  17. I was just prescribed a cream with 10% sodium sulfacetamide and 5% sulfer. I'm supposed to put it on just at night and wash it off it the morning. I haven't really seen many people on the boards that have used this product. Who out there has tried it for a decent amount of time (at least a month), and did you have any sucess?
  18. Hi All, Newbie here but unfortunately not a newbie to acne From puberty until my late 20's I could count on my 2 hands how many pimples I had. I am now 32 and suffering from, what I feel because it’s my face, the worst case of adult acne ever. :sad: My problem (s) are the following: I know the cause, which is POS (poly-ovarian-syndrom) which has given me a lovely elevated testosterone level which in turn had given me wonderful facial hair. After a good 2-year battle with constant cycl
  19. Hey i was just given clenia cleanser, its sodium sulfacetamide 10% and 5% sulfur foaming wash. Any one try it?? how was it? thanks.
  20. i have been taking dynacin, zetacit, and benzaclin for approximately 4 months now. many post they don't see any results with a minocycline treatment. i too thought so after trying it for a month, but let me tell you, results don't happen over night. before i got on the dynacin (another type of minocycline), i was on minocycline for about a month. i didn't really take it much since i didn't see results. i decided to go to the dermatologist and she prescribed the three to me. i didn't see re
  21. My derm put me on an antibiotic (Adoxa, a doxycycline) that is working very well, but I'm afraid of the seemingly unavoidable resistance to antibiotics that will eventually develop. She also gave me a bunch of Rosula gel, but told me to use it as a wash (i.e. not to leave it on). But I've been leaving it on my face overnight, and it seems to be helping a lot with fading red marks and drying out/calming down existing acne. Even though I'm having good results, I worry that this treatment might run
  22. Well, I went the Derm. about two weeks ago to see what I can do about my mild acne. She put me on these medications: 1. Doxycycline 2. Prascion (sodium sulfacetamide and sulfur cleanser) 3. Tazorac My question is, who has been on these medications, and did it work? How long before it started to clear up the skin?
  23. I've read that a lot of people have had good success with sodium sulfacetamide and it is less irritating than other creams. It does stink, but why isn't it prescribed more? Or have more people tried it and not liked it? Any info. about this product (Klaron, sulfacet, etc) would be appreciated!!!
  24. i looked around on the acne .org website and i found this link http://www.acne.org/prescription.php with informaton on perscription drugs. I have tried abour 4 of these creams and none have really made a difference. I noticed that Sodium Sulfacetamide (ie Klaron, Novacet, Sulfacet-R) seems to be getting the best reviews from people. Just wondering how godo this stuff is..and should i ask my dermatologist for a perscription? btw.my acne is pretty mild...its goes away..then comes back..
  25. Has anybody used this? It is 10% sodium sulfacetamide and 5% sulfur. My dermo told me to apply this to my forehead(my only problem area), and she said that it really helps with those annoying red bumps. Has anybody used this? Any information would be great! Thank you.
