  1. Right, you're going to have to forgive me for this essay but I really need advice and I think it's best if I just give you all the facts. I'm male, I'm 23 and I've been suffering from extremely oily/spot prone skin for about 10 years now. I've more or less given in to the fact that I'll probably have oily skin for most, if not all, of my life. I understand there's no miracle cure but it's got to the point where the state of my face has shattered all of my confidence and is having a severely nega
  2. IMPORTANT: I no longer recommend Betaine Hydrochloride supplements. While I do believe they help people and they helped me as well, I think they are a short-term solution. The long-term solution to low stomach acid is to improve your overall health. One of the best things you can do is ingest natural sources of calcium such as Raw Organic Dairy and Canned Fish with Bones. Also get good sleep and reduce your stress. These were the most important changes I made to improve my stomach acid productio
  3. I ordered both the sensitive skin and vitamin bar soap. I noticed the vitamin bar is a little harder to rinse off of my face...could residue from the soap make me break out or prevent BP absorption?
  4. 3 weeks into my new regime and i'm extremely happy, i wasn't gonna post for another couple of weeks but I believe i've finally found and started working on the problem causing my acne! I've spent a while researching and experimenting and now i have a 90 day plan to rid myself of acne once and for all! And if it works, i should feel a whole lot healthier!
  5. I have acne scars (brown spots) from previous breakouts. I do extensive research on the web to see how I can better this imperfection I possess. I came across this line called SONYA DAKAR. They boast that their products work so well that celebrities go to them for their skin needs. I was looking into their scarring package. This scarring package that contains 4 items cost $194. It's a hefty price but I would seriously pay $194 to get at least 50% results. I've used vinegar, tape, lemon ju
  6. Well im happy to say that i finally got my vitamin b5 (vitamin shoppe brand but its called pantothenic acid) alongside B complex 100 (also vitamin shoppe brand). The thing is that my B5 pills arent 500 mg,they're 100 mg. (They didnt have any 500 mg at the store i went to so i had to settle for 100 mg). Since i definitely know i have to take my dosage differently than whats been posted can anyone tell me how much of this 100 mg B5 i should start out with and how much shouls i take regularly after
  7. last month my derm asked me if i wanted to take accutane, i told him too wait and he upped my antibiotic dose (DORYX 2x 100mg).. for the past month i've also been taking 7g of vitamin b5 a day, i've gotten some improvement but this week i developed a huge nodule on the side of my nose, i've gotten like 5 or 6 of these in the past.. its pushed me over the edge.. now my parents dont want me taking Accutane cause of the side effects, and my girlfriend doesnt want me too either, but i dont know what
  8. I know you're supposed to take a B complex when taking large amounts of B5. Would a multi-vitamin be good enough?
  9. I see on this board that a lot of people with oily skin have had great experiences and success with Vitamin B5. Are those that are taking it and seeing results still using a moisturizer? I use Differin and Glycolic Acid at night, switching between the two each night, and they do dry out my skin a little so I have to use a moisturizer. I am using Cetaphil's Moisturizer as well as their face wash in the shower... would I be able to cut back on all the medications if the B5 works beause I thin
  10. has anyone tried vitamin b5? can you use it while on birth control?
  11. I have tried and have been prescribed everything in the book, and NOTHING HAS WORKED. I've tried differin, retin-a, benzoyl peroxide, clindamyicin, was even prescribed the oral meds tetracyclin and periostat (at different times). My acne has really affected me emotionally; I've wasted so many tears on this crap. I've even missed work a few times out of embarrassment. Anyway, I ran across an article on the Internet that talked about a study done using very high dosages of vitamin b5, and
  12. Every time I wake up in the mourning I have the dryest throat ever. Only been taking like 600mg of vitamin B5 a day...for the last 5 days now....but ever since I took it, damn my throat is dry....and I think it caused my cold-_- I rarely get colds.
  13. I'm thinking on going on Vitamin B-5 however I don't think I'll be taking 20(10g) pills a day, maybe start off at 2g a day and see how that works out. I'm also planning to take 1 Vitamin B-100 capsule daily. Any other vitamins that can help with acne/red marks/oiliness? I'd really like to know. Also, which brand is recommended more heartily? Twinlab or Vitamin Shoppe?
  14. Found this on Drugstore.com / GNC.com article they wrote explaining what the B vitamins are and the B complex. Here's an exert and the site w/ the article is on the bottom. Human requirements for members of the B-complex vary considerablyâ€â€from 3 mcg per day for vitamin B12 to 18 mg per day for vitamin B3 in adult males, for example. Therefore, taking equal amounts of each oneâ€â€as provided in many B-complex supplementsâ€â€makes little sense. Furthermore, there is little evidence
  15. Hello Guys and Girls! I have a very interesting/depressing problem on my hands, and so far I've been unable to find any possible cures.... About 3 years ago, (I was 15), in the midst of my puberty, I had a really bad case of acne. I had it every where on my face (cheeks, forehead, chin), back and chest. I tried many over the counter products and nothing seemed to work. So I went online and tried to find something "alternative". I arrived across a miracle, or atleast I thought so back
  16. Guest

    Any advice?

    Help! I'm 32 and have a severe acne problem. I've had acne since I was a teenager but it has worsen in recent years. I've tried everything from tetracycline, benzyol peroxide, vitamin A, accutane to birth controls. And out of all of them, accutane and birth control seemed to work when I was on it but the zits found their way back when I stopped/finished the program. I have zits all along the sides of my face and and scattered all over my jawline and seems to be migrating downwards towards my
  17. Age: 18 Gender: Female Acne Type: Moderate. Only on face. Dosage: Three pills at 20 mg per day. Amount of time on Accutane: 2 months and 28days. This might seem really strange and silly to start a log at nearly three months, when I should have started at day 1 But I actually just came across this sight a month ago or something. From reading other people's logs it has inspired me to start my own. I also think it will be really useful for me to start a written account of at least the
  18. Hey guys....this is the first time I've posted here but i'm just so happy with the success of my Acne Cure Plan that i just HAD to share it with other people... Firstly, my name's Vanessa, I'm 18 and i live in Australia. My acne started in year 9 and continued until the end of year 12 until i went on this amazing plan and got rid of it for good I know that some of you have heard of Dr Dubrow and his book, "The Acne Cure". I was heaps skeptical when i first read it but i was desperate and so
  19. Ok Ive done ALOT and I mean ALOT of research on this drug. I really think its worth a try for me and the drug best suited for my acne. I have light-mild acne, but the biggest problem is that I scar easily and have alot from past breakouts. 1. Does it help with red marks and scars at all? 2. Does it even out the skin tone and minimize redness? 3. I would like to buy locally from a store if I can for the convenience, is a GNC store/brand fine? 4. Is there anything in the pills I should
  20. I continue to research and try to get answers just like any of you, I believe that one day we WILL find the answer to our problem. I truely believe that our solution is NATURAL rememdies. I really feel that chemicals will make our problems worse. Just My Opinion.. I went to a few websites today.. I found one such as www.blessedherbs.com ..It is important that we continue our mission. You guys are great, and this site acne.org is truely a blessing. I dont know what I would do without it.. Keep
  21. There is an article in this month's issue of ALIVE on acne. It is a two page article so I will only transcribe the tips they give. Some tips: Vitamin A - very important for skin health; helps regulate sebum production. The usual recommended dosage is 25,000 IU daily for one to two months, then 10,000 IU daily. Do not exceed this amount unless advised by your doctor. Women who are pregnant should not exceed 5,000 IU daily. B vitamins - B-vitamin deficiencies have been associated with acn

  23. ive been on propecia for a year, and havent had any noticeable loss for over 6 months. i have (had?) a receding hariline. suddenly, over 15 hairs fall out last week (a week after starting B5) after i brush my fingers thru the front of my head for a minute or two. i stopped B5 for a few days, then the fallout seems to have stopped. then i take 3 mg yesterday, and a few more hairs fall out today. anyone have a simliar experience? by the way, im japanese. im going to hold off on B5 f
  24. Okay I have some good news and not so good news. First off, of course, props to Dan for putting his regimen out there, thank you kind sir:) Good news: I have been on the regimen now for exactly 10 weeks and things are going fuckin awesome. No new zits for about 2 weeks now, and the best part is that the bp seems to really be makin my old spots fade quicker than ever before. I am very happy with my results:) Not so good news: About three different times this week, my mom has asked me if I
  25. I was thinking of conducting an internet mediated experiment to reproduce the Vitamin B5 results as acquired by Lit-Hung Leung. Or possibly any other treatment that has a fair degree of accredibility. My motive is that I am very interested in getting rid of acne, but I sense a great deal of superstition, irrational thinking and lack of a good method on this board. Because it plays such a part in most of our lives and affects our mental state (happy/unhappy), we seem to be less able to think
