Starting Azelaic Acid Today...
Hey. Like many of you, I am completely at odds with my acne!!! I went to bed crying last night because my skin is sooooo Hideous! I can't even feel sexy with my boyfriend because I am so embarrassed! Anyway....I just purchased some Azelaic Acid today (very expensive!!! $79.00 for a 30 gram tube). My insurance does not cover it but I am waiting for the authorization for them to start. I found it on the web for $24.00 for the same amount, but decided not to wait since my skin is so bad. It is in a concentration of 20% as Skinoren™ Cream and Acne-Derm™ Medicated Lotion. I have read mixed reviews. If this stuff doesn't work, I am done with prescriptions and am going to try the body cleanse method (may try in conjunction with this anyway!).
So, I will keep you posted. If anyone else has had success or failure with this product, let me know!!!
