  1. I used to think that acne is caused mainly by factors such as the food you eat or how stressed you are and not as a result of using a wrong lotion or facial soap. About six months ago I was proven wrong. I used to read a lot about intrinsic factors that cause acne on acne.org forums and talked to experts who believe in the food-skin connection, trying all sorts of things that might help, some did actually help, but didnt solve the problem. About six months ago I started using two Kiehls pro
  2. I've just ordered the Clenser and Moisturizer to do the Regimen because I currently have BenzaClin (aka Duac) . It contains 1% clindamycin phosphate and 5% benzoyl peroxide. I was prescribed this for my day treatment and Retin-A for nights. I was thinking should I use both of these as prescribed as my treatment options for the Regimen? Perhaps use only the BenzaClin as it is closer to the Regimen's recommended treatment (though stronger) or invest in the Regimen's treatment of 2.5% BP? Has anyo
  3. Actually this was the intention of my first post ever on this forum. where is the successful acne treatments directory (/subforum)? a place where all the people who got rid of acne would present their successful treatment no matter the type (lifestyle/diet/hormonal/topical/etc). all of the success stories are lost in different subforums or even as ordinary post responses. seemingly there are a few types of problems which lead to acne, and some lucky people found the solution. can we pin
  4. Hello everyone! I'm Tyler and I'm going to be chronicling my journey on Accutane (Isotretinoin). First off, let me give you so background information. I am 16 years old, a male, 6'2, and 165 lbs. I'm very active, with basketball taking up my days almost everyday after school. I've had acne since (my guess) 6th grade. I think that is when someone first said something to me about my acne, and man did it feel belittling. But people get older and more mature and people stop saying things!
  5. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and for quite a while now I've been looking into getting a laser resurfacing on my face. I had acne breakout during my teenage years and now that I'm 25yrs old, I want to get rid of the acne scarrings that's been left from the breakout. Being an asian ethnicity I pose of complications of hyperpigmentation that's why I want to take my time on this matter and take the safest route as possible but also enough to see some actual results. I've been researching abou
  6. For the last 5 years I've been constantly struggling with bad acne. i've felt hopeless, fearful, ugly, unlovable. Lately i've been fantasizing about a place i could wake up every morning and feel accepted by my self and those around me. I know its a pipe dream. but what if there was a place were people could come to vacation or to receive therapy or go through accutane treatment or any type of skin treatment around other people who are going through the exact same thing. a place of tolerance, l

    My Acne Story!

    Hey guys, I'm new to this site and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Will and I'm 17, I've suffered from severe cystic acne since I was 13. I never thought much of it as I thought it was just normal, until I really started caring about my appearance, which was when I turned 15.I took it upon myself to try and sort it out and went to the doctors to see what they could do. I was prescribed Lymecycline (408mg tablet once a day) & Differin cream (spread only on face at night), I took t
  8. tiny little whiteheads like bumps which have red(inflamed) bases. picture : I KNOW THEY DON'T SEEM ANYTHING BIG BUT THERE ARE SO MANY SOMETIMES AND ALMOST ALWAYS , ALL OVER THAT THEY DO BOTHER. spread over my forehead,cheeks and around the nose area(mostly the area which has huge pores). i get them all the time and they do go way earlier or later(sometimes in days or weeks). i apply faceclin(clindamycin + nicotinamide) gel on them twice a day as spot treatment. and use my salicylic acid
  9. Have just been told that UK has almost no Skinoren in any pharmacies as manufacturer isn't sending it out and it could be months before we get any. I'm planning to buy some on the net in the meantime in case it is a while before I can get some on prescription again and my GP is hoping that he can prescribe me the next best thing. Will this be Finacea gel, do you think? I know they both have Azelaic acid in them but I thought that Finacea is mainly used for Rosacea, not acne?
  10. Hi! I've noticed that when I sleep on a clean pillowcase my breakouts are less severe. Have you tested this too? I'm considering buying a bunch of pillowcases to change nightly to help with my acne.
  11. Ok. So I'm a 22 year old female who has always struggled with acne and decided to go to a dermatologist. I always used over the counter products but they never worked. I have acne on my face, neck, back, chest and buttocks. A lot I know. He prescribed Epiduo once a day (by night on my affected areas), Minocycline once a day with food (which I take by night too), Oxy wash two times a day and to keep using my old Moisturizer L'oreal Ideal Moisture Sensitive Skin with SPF by day. So the first
  12. Hi everyone I can't believe that I'm back on this website again. I'm a 20-year-old Chinese woman who has been struggling with acne since age 10. What's really frustrating is that I absolutely have no family history of acne. My mom and dad have perfect skin, so do my grandparents, and aunts/uncles. My male cousin struggled with the occasional pimple when he was 14, but it was barely visible. I started to have pimples on my forehead when I was 10. Kids made fun of me, but I didn't pay attent

    Scar Type. Recommend Treatment

    Hey guys, I am VERY self concious about my scars. I work in customer service, so i ALWAYS feel people are just looking at them. And it always makes me look down, and avoid at looking people in the eye. Its very disheartening to me. I had severe acne for 10 ish years. So I just wanted to know, what type of scars do you see? And what would you treatment do you think would be most beneficial? I went to a plastic surgereon and he recommended either Fillers, Excision, dermabrasion, or lasers. Wha
  14. Could anyone please outline for me alternatives if Accutane doesn't work? It is not that Accutane is not clearing my skin, but that I am getting severe headaches, exhaustion (sleeping 15 hours +), and long-bone pain (aside from the achiness) after only 10 doses of 30mg Absorbica. (4 days in I stopped because the headaches were so bad, and after 3 days off, continued taking it for another 6 days) My Derm basically suggested that there are no real, substantive options if Accutane doesn't work, and
  15. So I've been going to the dermatologist for a while now, and I have been purchasing their in office acne products alongside the prescription medicine that they prescribed me. The only issue with the products they sell to me is that they are expensive. They've been charging me over $100 for a cleanser and a triple antioxidant cream. I was wondering I I could just get an in-store acne treatment and use it alongside the prescription medicine for the same results?

  17. Hey guys, the 7 year battle with problem skin has finally shown some results! I had literally tried everything to combat spots ranging from antibiotics to benzoyl, gels to over the counter medicines and nothing ever worked. However, since the start of March I tried a new regime due to the fact that I read somewhere that spots (non hormonal) are caused by two main reasons 1)bad diet and 2) the liver not being able to cleanse your blood properly. I did some research and found that coc
  18. its been there for at least 5 years.. its skin coloured and it doesnt really hurt or anything, nothing really comes out of it and its just skin... i also have some on my nose..can someone help me? how do i treat this?
  19. I've decided to take the plunge and consult for my acne scars. This is how they look like I have some on my temples, my forehead and my cheeks. I will be consulting two doctors next week: a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon. I am considering subcision, and the laser, and also perhaps microdroplet silicone injections. What questions should I ask during the consultation? I want to be well prepared and be able to cover all the bases when I go.

    Question !!!!

    I’ve been using the acene.org regimen for more then 5 months now, I’ve recently purchased the AHA+. How is this used? I’d like to use it as an all over the face treatment, do I wash it off after? Is it a leave in treatment? How is it used???
  21. Hello folks, What is considered to be the best treatment method for acne scars by this community? I guess it differs from how the acne scars look and where they are located but what do you think?
  22. So I’ve struggled with acne all my life but after accutane my acne cleared up and only got the odd few spots here and there (nothing crazy) then a couple of days ago out the blue my chin started to go crazy? I don’t know what this is, or what’s causing it. I changed my cleanser to the Botanincal Lab. clay mask and a nip and fab moisturiser and wasn’t sure if that’s what’s caused it? Is this this an example of purging? Whiteheads? Balckheads? I really don’t know! If anyone could offer ad
  23. Hello everybody. I am a 20 year old female who has been scourering the Internet for years searching for answers to my acne problem. After all these years, I am finally ready to make my first post. I am going to tell you my story and share with you how I have finally gotten my skin to be clear and smooth (for the most part!) It all started when I was in eighth grade. I had the most beautiful skin you have ever seen. I'm serious. But I suffered from OCD and I craved regiments and routines in my
  24. So I've been on monodox for 4 months now and it's just not working. It's gotten a little bit better but I still always have at least 3 cysts on my face (it used to be like 6) My derm has been telling me that he has to start easing me off of it and it should've been working by now so he switched me down to a lower dosage even though the cysts hadn't stopped and now I have like 8. They definitely get worse around the time of my period but I still have them at other times of the month. I was readin
  25. SIXSIXSIXSIXSIXSIX. Okay, okay. So currently on 60mg a day. I was meant to be bumped up 10mg but my derms handwriting is so illegible that the script got lost in the mail. What is with health specialist and their crappy handwriting? Hello, I'm paying you $145 a visit, can you at least make it possible for a piece of paper to get to me? Anyway, my skin's kind of meh. I've had about 5 breakouts come up this week, and all of the have been on the right side of my face. It sucks. My lips have be
