I had acne for more than 3 years and in my 4th year, these started to appear. I have a habit my touching my skin. I am applying benzoyl perozide 10% on my face every night and sometimes I apply lemon juice leave it fo 20 minutes.
Please please please Help! I've started having a massive breakout around my mouth area. It started out of nowhere (my acne was mild before). The cysts are really deep and painful.
I have cut out dairy and I'm reducing sugar but nothing is helping! I'm using BP on it, but nothing is working! Also on yasmin (and have been for a year)
Any idea what could have caused this??
Let me give a background about myself. I'm 37 year old. I used to have clear skin but recently my skin started to break. I get these small bumps under my skin that are turing in to cystic acne. I tried using Benzoyl and Salicylic acid. Both made my skin worse. I went to see a derm, she gave me Minocycline and Finacea gel. Finacea failed, gave me acne on places I didn't have before. So I stopped using all topical stuff and turned to Laser treatment. While this is still in progress, I would like to share my photos. Please feel free to comment or ask me anything. I'll try my best to answer :)
I have a very very limited amount of bisque on my face so it is more red without that. Help. Is a tretinoin and clindamycin regimen going to clear this disgusting mess? I just got prescribed the products by my dermotologist and started a week ago.
This album shows how my acne developed from bad to terrible and then better. It all started August 2010 and got to its worst in Dec. 2010 despite two visits to two different derms. I've been on lots of different treatments but right now what I have is working very well (so happy). Will post more photos in a month.
