    My ance gel testing results

    Hey bros, i know some of u are having the same problem i am with acne from ur cycles. Iv never had any trouble with it growing up and it only started after starting AS. I had it pretty bad on my back and shoulders. Enough so i wouldnt take my shirt off in public...errrr Well, i started to use anything and everything OTC to try and get rid of it with no luck. So i decided to go on the web ( gotta love it ) and find something stronger. This wasnt supposed to be a test it just ended up that way trying to find something that would work. I went threw 1 - 30ml tub of all 3.

    First i tried differin gel. Didnt really help much if at all.

    Second i tried accutane get. It helped somewhat but not enough to really do the job.

    Third i tried and still using Retain-A cream. Now this is doing the job so far. I have less and less acne everyday. Shoulders are almost clear and back is coming along. Back would probably be better if it wasnt for me having to put it on myself and not really being able to reach that well.

    Well bros i hope this helps some of u out there dealing with this problem!

    Yeah bro, retin-a does help. My prescription just ran out so I have to go see the dermatologist next week.... I don't have any acne on my back but chest and shoulders are setting off.

    Hey OG... occasional showering helps with acne too... So do you need a script to get Retain A Cream??? I may have to try it with my shoulders.

    ridin dirty
    its just different for everyone, retin-a didn't do shit for me and neither did minocyclin, and i'm on differin gel right now and thats workin....the gels may not work as well for you because those gels are made to peel skin away to remove white heads, not really the big boils....i'm pretty up to date on acne and medications if you have any questions.
