  1. I used to pore over this site when I had really bad acne. I want to share this info with everyone. I had cystic and nodular acne for 17 years. Very very oily skin. I'd gone to the dermatologist twice in my past. This time they tried to give me Differin again, and I said no because I'd tried it and it didn't work. Way too over dried my skin. So she gave me this stuff called BenzaClin. It's benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin, a topical antibiotic. She also prescribed me an oral antibiotic but my
  2. Well, I can say this product is healing my active acne faster than anything else I've tried! Cyst from Day 5 is on its way out, and older red marks seem to be fading. Still hoping to get completely clear, so hoping nothing new appears... will continue to apply Vitastem twice a day and post a pic every other day.
  3. I've been continuing the regimen described in my first post, applying Vitastem topical ointment twice daily after washing with Cerave. Had a setback on day 5, a new painful cyst on my neck and another on my cheek - they were previously microcomedones. This is pretty standard for me and how my skin usually looks, even with the Spironolactone and doxycycline. I'm slightly encouraged by Day 7, as the they seem to be healing up faster than usual (my cysts often hang around for 2 weeks or more).
  4. I'm writing this blog to document my own experiences with a topical product called Vitastem. It was recommended to by a physician friend who was seeing amazing results in psoriasis and eczema patients, and said I should give it a try for my persistent, cystic acne. About me: I'm mid-30s and a lifelong acne sufferer. First cystic breakouts were in high school, on my back - I still have scarring. At that time tried benzoyl peroxide then oral antibiotics but in the end the only thing that actual
  5. So I've been using a new skin care regimen prescribed by my dermatologist for the next month or so until I can start Accutane. Before the regimen, my face was actually starting to clear up. Now, I think my skin had an initial breakout on this regimen because my pores were getting rid of built-up dirt/ oil. I have one small cyst/ zit? on my right jawline, another red mark near it, and healing red marks on the left side of my chin and right cheek. I'm somewhat annoyed and discouraged, but I'm thin
