I find that changing my pillow case frequently helps.

I strongly advise against using acutane at all costs. They are trying to get it banned by the FDA at the moment because of it’s harsh side effects. It’s not something to play around with and it’s not the safest route to take. A PP posted about how it’s extremely dangerous to get pregnant while on accutane and guess what?… Yes she ended up accidently pregnant because her birth control pills failed. Her baby came out with SEVERE birth defects, ones I won’t even mention on here because they make my skin crawl, but in the end her baby didn’t survive longer than 2 months. She is also left with liver damage but….her acne is gone. Not worth it in my opinion. Not to mention she’s become depressed about what happened to her baby and blames herself.

If you do decide to take accutane, I strongly advise that you don’t. It’s dangerous and not worth the chance of liver damage.

You should try tetracyclin. My fiance uses it and it works beautifully.

@MrsPinkBONBON:  I assume you are referring to someone you know who had a very unfortunate, and horrible, issue with Accutane. I just wanted to clarify, since you stated it was a previous poster, and I made the post above you about pregnancy and Accutane that you weren’t referring to me. I did not have any complications when I was on it. But it is a very real concern. I am very sorry for your friend. I cannot imagine going through that.

@Ms. Peach: I was referring to you only because you mentioned the complications associated with pregnancy not that you had a pregnancy that was affected by accutane.

I’m prone to breakout right before my period with the large, painful zits. I’ve tried tons of drugstore and department store treatments. My dermatologist used to recommend 10% benzoly peroxide since I have oily skin. Now, 3.5% benzoyl peroxide cleanser (Neutrogena) works better.

What has made a bigger difference in prevention is the Olay ProX cleansing brush to help move the cleanser into the pores instead of just on top. I also use the zeno when I feel a large one coming in and it usually helps decrease the duration and size of the zit.
