One of my doctor friends said that my acne probably didn’t clear up from the above mentioned treatments, but that it was that I started to drink a whole lot more water and green tea. I don’t think it was one or the other, I think it was a combination of both.
Also be aware of the 3 stooges that appear in virtually all processed food and drink. Aspartame, MSG and high fructose corn syrup. They are excitotoxins which play havoc on your digestive, neuro and endocrine systems… Which could manifest as acne breakouts. If you switch to an organic diet you will find you eat less (because your body is geting nutrition and doesn’t need to signal you to gorge so that it gets the proper amount of nutrients).
Any medication may cause any drug reaction, but there are some more specific reactions associated with certain classes of medications. Minocycline may have a higher risk of hyperpigmentation and drug hypersensitivity syndromes. The relative risk of severe side effects such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis may be somewhat higher in people taking trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole than other antibiotics. Likewise any antibiotic may cause the intestinal problem known as pseudomembranous colitis, but clindamycin is more strongly associated with this condition.
-Start taking vitamins. Vitamins contain the most needed nutrients the adult body needs. Eat dark chocolate (in moderation) or drink green/black tea. These have a decent amount of antioxidants. You want antioxidants because the more oxygen flow in your blood the better your skin will be! (Resulting in less redness improved skin tone.)
Benzoyl peroxide is available directly from pharmacies over the counter in a number of formulations that may be applied to the skin. It has been a mainstay in the treatment of acne for over 50 years, and works by killing bacteria, particularly Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes).
Try to stay as much natural as you can…drink lots of water and around 2 big cups of unsweetened green tea everyday..this treatment will atleast take a month to show off the results but if you will be patient enough then the acne will start to go within 2 weeks..!!!
I am 17 and have had horrible severe acne all over my face, arms, and back since the third grade because I have overactive oil glands. I highly recommend the oatmeal face mask immediately after I washed it off my skin was softer and the irritation and redness went down and I have rosacea and it also helped reduce that as well and made my acne less severe. Thank you so much for your help.
What can be confusing about cystic acne, he explains, is that they’re usually so deep that no whitehead develops, and they’re often found on the cheeks or along the jawline. More annoying news: They last longer than that random zit on your nose. “A duration of 2-3 weeks is typical, and when they go away, they often leave behind pigmentation, lingering purplish-red marks, or even scars,” he adds.
As your doctor will tell you, Retin-A should only be used at night, because it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun and more susceptible to sunburn. Use extra sunscreen and sun protection when outdoors.
There are several factors that are known to play a crucial role in the occurrence and spread of acne. High levels of hormones such as androgen as well as testosterone are known to increase the production of skin oils, thereby triggering the development of acne on the skin. Certain bacteria are also known to cause acne. Health experts have stated that although bacteria are present on the surface of the skin, they thrive when the skin begins to secrete high amounts of oil. Health experts have stated that there are also various medications that can trigger the occurrence of acne among certain individuals. This is due to the fact that consuming certain medications can cause hormonal fluctuations in the body, thereby triggering the excess production of sebum, which in turn causes the problem of acne.
You can also use a cinnamon-honey-coconut oil moisturizer. Mix honey, virgin coconut oil, and cinnamon powder until you obtain a thick cream-like consistency. Apply it to your face as a day or night cream or both.
And, of course, Rouleau has a signature anti-cyst treatment that she vows will dramatically reduce the infection and cut the healing time in half. “The longer the cyst has time to develop, the more you’ll increase your chances of scarring the skin,” she adds. “You need to put the fire out — fast!”
DIY scrubs to fight acne and keep skin fresh are easy to make and economical. First, you need something that is gritty. Sea salt, brown sugar and ground oatmeal are good choices. In addition, you need a base. Coconut oil, kefir and honey are all good choices. These bases help to fight bacteria, fungi and Candida overgrowth on the skin while the textured ingredients help to unplug pores and remove dead skin.
I am making him wash his face every night with a mixture of brown sugar and honey and then to rinse it off with water. I told him to only patt his face with the towel not to dry his face too hard just patt.
Grade IV: This is the most severe of all acne grades, and individuals with severe acne will exhibit a large number of papules, pustule, nodules, and pus-filled cysts. Severe acne is often observed on varied areas of the body, including the back and chest. This type of acne is the most likely to cause permanent skin damage in the form of scarring and disfiguration if treated improperly.
-For all you girls out there it may help to take birthcontrol. Not only to prevent pregnancy but it also releases estrogen in your body which moderates your hormones. Balanced hormones will lead to a clearer complexion.

Really? I can’t print this info? I want to be able to refer to it without having to pull up the web site all the time. I don’t want to violate copyrights by any means but just print it for my own use WITHOUT the ads for CHEMICAL products – or any ads. 🙁
Some people use natural treatments like tea tree oil (works like benzoyl peroxide, but slower) or alpha hydroxy acids (remove dead skin and unclog pores) for their acne care. Not much is known about how well many of these treatments work and their long-term safety. Many natural ingredients are added to acne lotions and creams. Talk to your doctor to see if they’re right for you.
