Discussions that mention benzoyl

Acne board


well I just spent the last 30 - 40min reading this thread and decided to register and post myself.

I've had moderate acne on my face (all over, checks, chin, forehead, ect) since about the age of 13, I'm 20 now, so for the past 7 years or so I've tired everything under the sun to treat it. Nothing worked.

Seeing how upset and frustrated I was getting my grandparents decided it was time I saw a dermatologist. For the first 3 or 4 months my dermatologist had me on Doxycycline (100mg) once daily and Clindamycin phosphate lotion for the day time and it helped dramatically, yet the acne is not completely gone.

At my last appointment (1.5 weeks ago) he took me off the Doxycycline and has added Triaz (6% benzoyl peroxcide) and Ziana (Clindamycin 1.2%, tretinoin 0.025%) to the regimen aswell as keeping the Clindamycin phosphate lotion for use during he day. And for the past week and a half nothing had really changed and that familiar feeling of frustration is beginning to set in again.

I was up all night thinking about how much I cant stand my face and what I could do about. Then I stumbled upon this site and eventually this thread and after reading it in its entirety I really hope that this Omega 3 fish oil will do what you all say it will do.
