25 years of battling this disease ~ I just want to feel normal...
I'm 48, I did not have acne as a teenager, but have been plagued with it for about 25 years now. It literally has robbed me of any self confidence and has ruined my life. I know that sounds dramatic, but it's how I feel. I've been to several dermatologists, a naturopathic doctor, tried what feels like every plan/treatment available, made dietary changes/eliminations, yet NOTHING seems to work, and many things seems to make it worse...
I've been wearing calamine lotion to bed for years and it's made my skin clear. Not perfect but way better than it normally is. But I don't want to wear it to bed for the rest of my life. So I've stopped and it's been a month and my skin is horrible again. What do I do..?
I just started using a clarisonic and I am struggling through the purging phase.
I use the clearasil 2% salicic acid gel cleanser with it.
My forehead and cheeks have tiny bumps all over them as well.
Any advice is welcome in fact I would love to hear what you have to say
Looking for tips/help/advice on my acne. All comments are helpful and encouraged! The pictures attached are on my cheeks. My acne is not as bad on my forehead and I have no acne on my nose but a lot of blackheads. I also have acne on my upper lip and chin area and just a lot of redness all over. (15 year old female teenager).
Can someone tell me what exactly Im dealing with here? I used to have acne but I used benzyl peroxide for 2 weeks then stopped using it then moved to Amway 3 step cleansers. Now Im just using all natural brown sure green tea scrub, thinking of doing micro needling for the marks.
So, i've been dealing with acne for over a year now. It used to be mild, and my worst problem was pigmentation. But a few month ago i started using honey and now i barely get pimples. Now i only deal with a few whiteheads and pigmentation.
But, 2 month ago my skin started to look and feel grainy, like sandpaper. It's full of tiny little bumps and they look worse when i'm out in the sun or with strong lights. Also i'm getting red very easily, and get hives everytime i scratch any part of my body. I really don't know what to do. Been looking for treatments and i can't find anything that works. Gonna leave a few pictures.
PS: Sorry if my grammar is bad, my native language is spanish.
these are just some sort of bumps on my skin. i have very light acne as to maybe a few pimples pop up here or there, i have a lot of black heads around my nose and the edges of my nose but theyre not to visible, but they get really red. i have some acne scars too can anyone help?
Wondering if anyone else has delt with the same thing im going through if you have any idea what is causing this skin problem, or ways on treating it. I have closed comedones only at top of my cheeks, but my whole face is loosing elastic and just feels like complete mush, Last week i woke up with a whole bunch of indented scars on my cheek where there was a patch of skin that just looked slighly wrinkles. (There was no sign of any type of acne). Might be difficult to see all the problems as pictures dont show everything, but my whole face is scarring up and turning to rolling scars.
So I have tried two laser treaments already (spread 2 years apart from eachother and it has been 3 years since my last one) and I am unsure about any significant progress. Anyways, dealing with anxeity has become a constant challenge for me since this all started about 9 or so years ago. I do my best to forget about it but it is anxeity is always lingering because of my scar situation. So, I was hoping to get some sort of advice on treatments I can do. I am open to any response.
I just wanted to know if this is normal and should this be happening with the products. My sink is starting to peel to the point it's causing discoloration in my face as well as spots .You can tell a big difference in person from the lighter parts ok my sink and the darker parts where the skin is peeling. Any help?
This is some before and after pictures. This place has honestly changed my life! Acne.org gave me my confidence and my happiness back by giving me clear skin! I can't thank them enough. I gave up for so long thinking I won't ever find anything that will make my pimples go away. But AtLast!!!!! I am so appreciative. I love them!!! I will buy it forever. Don't think this is a hoax or scam! I am a unique girl just like any of you who did a leap of faith trying this product!!!
Hi, I have some scarring from picking at pimples in the past. Considering either trying out microdermabrasion or a dermaroller, but i don't know which will be more useful in my case. Any suggesttions would be appreciated. Thanks.
I don't normally share things like this, but I wanted to share how much the acne daily regimen changed my life. I had dealt with acne since I was in middle school. I went to my primary physician and dermatologist numerous times for treatment, but every time things only got worse from oral treatments to topical creams. It got to the point where they recommended doing surgery which definitely was a no go. My self-confidence, -worth, -esteem, etc. were so low that I primarily had negative thoughts of myself. Acne.org has changed my life, thank God and praise Jesus for this regimen!
