1. Name: Sure ain't Ruffeo
2. Age: 20
3. How long had acne: since I was 13
4. What you have tried: Proactiv, Murad, pretty much every single OTC crap in exsitence.
5. What you are currently doing:

Pop a minocycline pill 100mg, Shave(Gillette Sensor Excel & Purpose as lather), wash with Purpose, apply Benzamycin, apply moisterizer, apply concealer (i know, ima guy, who cares!), 10g b-5 throughout the day @ 2g per pop session, Centrum multi-vit, 50mg zinc, wash with Purpose again in the evening and then retin-a .025%, pop another minocycline pill.

I drink about 10 -- 16oz cups of water a day. About half that of soda, caffine pref. I smoke about 10 cigs a day also...which isn't good but I can't seem to break the habit. I smoke other "paraphenalia" as well, which seem to make my acne iritated, but it sure does feel good.

I think I'm over doing it but, it seems to be helping,*t, go figure.

1. Name: Carol

2. Age: I'll be 19 in less than a week

3. How long had acne: Sheesh...lets see....probably since I was 13 but It didn't get bad until 6 months ago.

4. What you have tried: Tazorac, minocycline, erythomycin gel and God only knows how many OTC products.

5. What you are currently doing: Still on the tazorac and minocycline...(3 months now)I tossed the erythomycin gel because it was burning my skin and I will just end up becoming resistant to it anyway. I am happy with the results I have gotten on the tazorac and minocylcline, but I know the minocycline is only a temporary solution... sigh... I think I'm just going to go ahead and take Accutane... I am willing to put up with 5 months of #@*% if I can be rid of acne...
