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!!!

Re: Starting Azelaic Acid Today...

hey,
my old derm gave me samples of finacea which is azelaic acid. it wasn't terrible but didn't work wonders to say the least. my new derm said that azelaic acid usually works better for rosacea but not plain old moderate acne. good luck.
