Acne / spots

6/7/2020 | | 15moderated by Susan

I have acne on my face, chest, and back. I always have to wear closed shirts (unlike other girls) and I can't wear bathing suits at pool parties. Furthermore, it is very annoying to have when changing in the locker room. Luckily, it is not as bad on my face, but it still counts as severe because i have quite bad acne on my chest and back. I am currently 15 and I have had it for a couple years.

Doxycycline

Doxycycline (100MG) for Acne / spots

I started using Doxycycline for 3 months for acne on my face, chest and back in February. The acne was very annoying and I always had to wear closed shirts. The first few days I took the medicine without food, but it quickly changed to eating with food because I vomited. If I ate something first, it went much better and I actually had little trouble. My acne slowly became less but never complet...

Drospirenone / ethinyl estradiol (30ug/3mg) for acne / spots

I've been taking microgynon since I was 17 but I was getting spots until I stopped taking the medicine when I was 26, the spots were less, but the hard lumps under my skin remained. I was dead unlucky. Then I read some positive stories about Yasmin. So when I went to the doctor, she told me about the risk of thrombosis but I still wanted to try it. Within one month all of my spots were gone! To...

Doxycycline (100mg) for acne / spots

At 32 years old, my dermatologist prescribed me Doxycicline because I had a huge pimple on my face. While taking the medication, I had no more pimples. The day I stopped, my face covered with a huge plate of buttons with a white tip. The plaque was increasingly covering my face from hour to hour, I didn't know what to do to stop it. I had to stop eating all the foods that contain sugar to stop ...

Adapalene (1mg/g) for acne / spots

Hello, I'm 17 years old and I got this product for my acne. At first I didn't have any problems, no burning sensation, I could use make up and other products. After a while the Differin started to burn. I couldn't use make up, just some vaseline. I use the cream every evening, just as it says, but it burns and my skin turns really dry after taking a shower. On me it has no possitive effect, spo...

Doxycycline (20mg/ml) for acne / spots

Two months ago I started taking doxycycline for acne. I noticed a difference after just one and a half weeks and once my treatment had finished (6 weeks), my skin was perfectly smooth all over. Unfortunately it's come back again and I felt so red that I called my dermatologist to see if I could bring my appointment forward. I've just started taking a 6-month course of Isotretinoin (Roaccutane) ...

Drospirenone / ethinyl estradiol (20ug/3mg) for acne / spots

I've been on the pill since I was 16 because of regular spots (acne). I am now 22 and am still suffering with spots so I decided to switch to another pill, the Yasmin. I had read that it uses another kind of hormone than most of the other contraceptive pills. Since I started using this pill my skin is smoother than it's ever been! Now and then I do get the odd spot but so does everyone. I am re...

Adapalene (1mg/g) for acne / spots

The dermatologist prescribed me this product alongside antibiotics. My subcutaneous acne has stopped. Similarly after using both products I've had no new spots. I'm really happy with this gel, my face has never looked so pretty. I look five years younger and I've only been using it for 2 weeks. I did peel a bit in the beginning and it was occasionally itchy but the results are definitely worth ...

Minocycline (100mg) for acne / spots

I was suffering with really bad acne but minocycline has made such a difference! My skin now feels smooth although I do have a few scars. But I'm going to see a dermatologist about this. All in all I am definitely really happy with this, soon I'll be going down to 50 mg so I hope that it still works.
