i deseperately need something to get rid of this terrible disease. It is destroying my self esteem in immeasurable degrees. I cannot deal with it any more. Im going to college next year and I would very much like to leave this chapter in my life behind. What do u guys suggest I go on(besides accutane)?
replay....if you're a girl??? ask about Spironolactone. It blocks androgens- male hormones that cause acne, oily skin, facial hair, thinning hair. I don't think it would be a good treatment for males though???
I've been saying this over and over again in every single response I make but it's the ONLY THING that has ever worked for me.
Cetaphil cleanser with 1% clindamycin
Seriously, I think everyone should try cetaphil with clindamycin. It tastes really bad if it gets on your lips but it works sooo well. It doesn't dry your skin out too badly (if at all) and it makes your skin SOFT. I don't know about any of you but as someone who had acne for about 10 years I didn't remember what it was like to have soft skin.
yeah, they mix it in the mixture for dry skin. What I usually do is go pick the cetaphil of my choice off of the shelf and take it to the back with my prescription because one time they didn't know what they were doing and after I peeled the prescription label off I realized I'd been washing my face with cetaphil LOTION with clindamycin in it. Even so, my skin was still clearer.
I don't like cetaphil cleansers on their own but it's amazing with the 1% clindamycin.
