Hey guys. Has anyone ever used this drug? Well... not really a drug. Ever since I hit puberty, I've had razor bumps on the bottom 1/4th of my neck, and mostly on the left side. Yes, I know how to shave properly... I've tried Erythromycin, Clindamycin, Doxycycline, and every OTC product imaginable. My rents even bought the new Arcitec electric razor for me a few months ago. Saying electric razors do not give a close shave is an understatement, and if I bear down or stretch my skin to get a closer shave, I get razor bumps so I may as well shave with a razor.... I still use my razor (the one with 6 blades. Name escapes me right now) for the rest of my face, but not my neck. Hair removal creams work great, but the effect on your skin, and the ungodly smell, aren't worth it. Especially since I'd have to do it every other day anyway. Waxing (yes, I've even tried waxing) painful and messy.
It's not as if it's debilitating lol. If you saw me on the street passing by, you probably wouldn't even notice, BUT I don't care what everyone else sees or doesn't see, I care about what I see.
So, my question is, has anyone used this product? It's really my last resort. I've tried everything else short of laser hair removal. It's my understanding that Renova and Retin-A are uber-expensive, so I'm going to ask my doctor for the generic (not that the generic is cheap ) It's a lifestyle drug, so insurance won't cover it (understandable... but when you consider they cover Viagra it seems sort of silly)
It's mostly used for sun damaged skin, wrinkles, and acne. Oh, I guess I forgot to say it's because I have curly hair My mother said she has some Renova I can try out, but she said it's older than dirt. Can't hurt to try it before I go to the doc's office in two months to get more Propecia. Another lifestyle drug Time to move to Canada.
