    Uhm its the first time I hear that Lactoferrin helps with acne. it has a general immune boosting effect and potentially anti-cancer, but this...

    Google it, there are surely cheaper alternatives.

    Proactive is what Drew calls my junk after I finish on his...well you get the picture. Not only does it combat acne, but it's a facial mosturizer as well.

    The best and easiest acne treatment I have found for myself is simply taking double to occassionally quadruple the RDA of vitamin A. It slows down the production of oil and sebum pretty well. I have had chronic cystic acne my entire life and have used every antibiotic and even accutane but it always came back.

    YES, I know that A is a fat soluable vitamin and before anyone breaks into hysterics that I'm offering dangerous advice I suggest you consult the Merck manual on Vitamin A toxicity. It is extremely rare and only shows up in people who have taken upwards of 120,000 iu a day for weeks on end. Symptoms cease the minute they stopped and no permanent damage was reported. It shows up most often in people who eat seal and polar bear livers so...um, relax 20,000 to even 40,000 iu isn't going to kill you.

    Recall that Accutane, the wonderfully potent and toxic drug, is indeed a derivative of a vitamin A metabolite. Seeing is how they needed to modify a naturally occuring substance before they could patent it..why not just go with the safer, natural precursor?

    Accutane kicked the **** out of my acne in high school. Hasn't really been bad since.

    I think the thing to keep in mind is that there's a lot of different causes for acne...hormonal, diet, or in my case a combo of hormonal with skin that grows too fast and covers the pore/hair follicle.

    Antibiotics obviously do not treat the cause. Accutane does, but many people like me will experience having acne comeback after about 10 years, My dermatologist said that this is pretty common and that if the first accutane treatment took care of acne on your face for example, that it would come back on a different area..like your shoulders or lower back. This is what happened to me.

    Proactive did absolutely nothing for me or my wife, but it seems to work for many.

    I have extremely oily skin that has been problematic for years. Proactive worked to a degree but it was the best that I have used. Nothing beats, not wearing a hat and washing atleast 3 times a day. That has done the most yet. Using proactive is a pain in the ass, as it takes like 15 min. each time.

    It's funny how we follow our insults up with either a question or a comment. Like it's normal or something. Sadly, I think it is becoming normal. BTW, I hope your son didn't inherit your female like qualities. I hate to see people mistake him for a girl like they do you.

    Bump for ingrown hairs. I don't get acne very bad, but my neck gets ingrown hairs and cysts occasionally- Whatever I get, I do not like it and want to put an end to it. I've tried Proactive and it worked great, but much cheaper to get a beaded scub, an astringent, and a zit cream (like Persa-Gel). Aveeno works good to. Much cheaper.

    I've always had acne since I was a teen. AAS just blows me up, esp on the face. After ahwile off, it usually calms down on it's own, but I still have a few here and there when natty.

    When shaving, I used to try to shave as close as possible. I would basically shave down, and then turn the razor upside down and run it up against the grain and then repat until my face was as smooth as a baby's bootwa. That alwasy led to ingrown hairs (this I just recently figured out, lol) So what I do now is get a triple or quad blade and only run it down my face once and not go against the grain. It leaves me with short stubbies, but since I've started doing this a few weeks ago, my acne has vastly improved...just a tip for whoever may try and shave as close as possible as I used to do...

    same here, i never go up anymore, only down and across. after going across there is very little stubble left after that with no ingrown hairs.

    I know someone who has facial acne pretty bad. One day, she was babysitting a dog, and when playing, let it lick her all over her face. Some were saying that's gross, but I was going "well I did that as a kid and I was pretty happy".

    You know what? I see her again a week later and it had pretty much all cleared up... She had done nothing special otherwise...

    Would you take those vitamin a doses daily, just when you had a problem, weekly or when? I'm curious about running this and b5 to help with some back and arm acne that is really starting to get on my nerves
