Thread: Acne Problem
02-28-2002, 10:13 AM #1
It has been about a month and a half since I came off my clomid therapy. My acne is worse now then when I was on the cycle. It just won't go away... and I've tried everything. 3 showers a day, acne pads, body wash, scrubbing, tanning, b5 etc... It won't go away. I was thinking about seeing a dermotologist.
What have been your guys experiences with dermatologists?

bro, goto the dermatologist you don't need to tell him you do AS he'll just give ya medications and help you get your skin cleared up. I don't know if Insurance covers that stuff but check it out. well worth it. I would rather get creams to take then take accutane that is hard on the liver just to clear up acne!

i was also on the same boat bro. I had acne and cyst on the side of my face. After the cycle it just decreased but it was still there. Now im on a fina cycle and im using Retin A the strongest strength. Works great! the cyst is nearly gone and so is the acne. Dries up the area real good. you can buy Retin a w/out a prescription on any international pharm sites.

I recommend Tazorac or Differin Gel. Not sure of spelling on either but... They are both topical antibacterial gels that kill the bacteria that causes acne. I know that if you cant get it through your doctor I can definatly get you a hookup. LMK.

Triaz gel is the shit. My dermatologist gave it to me. He'll prolly try to give you 6 % gel, but ask for the 12%. You have to ask he won't offer it unless your face is one giant zit. I find that it works twice as fast. But it burns a little when you put the 12 % on. It completly cleared up my post-cycle acne in like 3 wks.
