has anyone tried this, it works well, it brings up everything below your skin for the most 3 days then its all gone, the only bad part is that when you put it on, it feels like your whole face is glued but it works great
Is Strivectin that new topical drug that everyone is saying it really gets rid of wrinkles? Is that what you meant by saying your face felt glued? I didn't understand your message, did you mean that at first it really broke out your skin and then cleared up?
what i meant to say was that, if you have pimple that wont come to the head or you can feel any underneath your skin, you apply this gel and it brings up any pimple for the most 2-3 days then its gone, your skin feels nice and smooth, the only downpart is that its like putting glue on yuor face but once you see the results, its great
and its stievamycin, its been around for years, my doctor prescribed it to me a year ago, and i think you can only get it in canada, but im not sure
I'm using steivemycin(sp?) at night as well and I feel the same way. It works wonders with my acne, along with oral antibiotics - erythromycin. But you're right it feels like you glued your skin down. I guess as long as it does the trick I'm going to keep using it. The one I use is a gel and its labelled MILD. How about yours?
hey vanna,ya same with mine, its mild, its very good because its got a combination of tetroin and erythromycin so it worked beneath the skin surface and brings everything to the skin then clears it right up, but your right it workes great, like 6 months ago i used a bit of stievamycin and this other cream and my skin was badddd, your only suppose to use stievamycin with nothing else on your face, and if you follow the steps right youll have very good skin

Janet - Stievamycin is just erythromycin and tretinoin (aka Retin-A) combined. I don't believe it's available in the US, but each of the individual components obviously is and could be used in combination therapy.
I use it after washing my face with Avene Soapless gel cleanser and then use Avene Oil-free anti-shine regulating lotion or Yon-ka night time mosturiser.
Though, i have few pimples i use stievamycin to catch zits before they apear and find that after the first few days of the pimples coming to the surface it works really well to clean the skin and also get rid of blackheads.
i was told by the dermatologist to not use the gel if i was going to be out in the sun too much. (not sure why) and i stopped useing it for about 4/5 days because i knew i was going to be in the sun. After re-using it i did find it brought all my little zits up to the surface and they are going away after a few days.
as well in the morning i use the same cleanser to wash my face and then use mosturiser before putting on makeup.
Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I haven't been on the board for a while. I use the Spectro Jel for sensative skin, I believe its the purple one.
But guess what, the stievemycin wasn't really getting rid of all my acne so when I went to the derm he put me on ACCUTANE! Very low dosage and I can't believe how good it works. I was so afraid of the side effects but he started me on a very very low dosage
- 10 mg's. I go back at the end of July and I think he wants to up the dosage, I'll see how it goes.
Anyways, I hope all is well with you. Take care!
argh. i'm concerned about this initial break out. it's a total bummer. 3 days? is that variable? ****. well, i'm just happy it's the weekend. i, too, use spectro jel. sometimes alternate with baxter's. i've meddled with yonka too. pretty fly for a guy. i don't want to go on 'tane. i'm scurred. i'm taking a broadspectrum antibiotic tho'. um. vanna, i wish you luck. ****. acne sucks A**. i hate it. it has no purpose in this world.
