  1. Hello, three weeks ago I went to my doctor for my mild acne, and acne scars (I have many blackheads on my nose, large pores, and shiny skin too). At that time I only had maybe 4 spots, and a whole lot of red marks from past acne. My doctor said my scars weren't deep, and they will go away with time. He then said he was going to prescribe me Retin A. He told me to wash my face with an acne cleanser, and use the Retin A .1% medication everyday. I recently bought the Cetaphil Daily Facial cleanser,
  2. Hello, first post and am quite a forum newbie so hope this is in the right place )! I'm hoping someone could offer some insight. I won't bore anyone with the details but after trying various medications my new dermatologist has recommended Trentinoin (Retin A) cream. I gather this isn't available in the UK, so I should point out that whilst I'm partly UK based I also spend quite a bit of time elsewhere with work (hence being able to get hold of it) ;-). I've had some absolutely horrendou
  3. I have been using the acne.org bp along with my own wash and a prescription rentinol treninoin for the past month. My skin is definitely better in terms of breakouts but it’s gotten so red. I’ve been using the bp during the day and the treninoin at night. I think what’s really irritating my skin is the amount of bp it says to slather on it seems like way too much. Do you really need that much bp? I’m 26 I really don’t want to be overdrying my skin but I’m not sure if it will be as effective in s
  4. Since I was 15 I struggled with acne. My active acne wasn't the biggest problem though, I have very sensitive skin that scars easy. So although I may only have a few active pimples at a time, my face looks like one big, red scar. I've tried everything. Every face wash at the store, every Proactive system, and everything I could find over the internet. 3 days ago, I decided enough was enough and took a trip to my doctor's office. He told me I have moderate-severe acne that is very inflamed. This
  5. Hello, I used to visit this board alot when I was breaking out and desperate. I'm a medical esthetician & medical assistant for a very prestegious dermatologist who is AMAZING at getting people's skin clear. I follow his program and for the first time in my whole life I have clear skin and really understand how & why this works. I thought I'd come back on here and share what I now know. Hope this helps someone. I'm going to talk about a few different things. ACCUTANE: This a
  6. If you haven't read my previous post, I'd invite you to do so. It's short, but it has the information on the percentage of the medications that I am on. I'll list them here anyways: Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion 1% Trentinoin .05% ( I apologize for any misspellings!) Let's see....where to start! I've noticed that I break out every other week. It's really strange- I'll be clear for a week and then BAM! The next week I have 3-4 zits. They go away quickly which is nice, and the red mar
  7. Quick back story: I have always struggled with breakouts since high school but four years ago during my freshman year in college my breakouts were borderlining acne. I went to my first dermatology appointment in September of 2012 and my doctor was very intelligent and kind, He prescribed me Oracea (delayed 40mg of doxycyline) and topical clindamycin solution as well as trentinoin. Oracea worked remarkably for a year, I was completely clear, then in December of 2013 my skin was as bad as befor
