New papule under the right side of my jaw. Big whoop. Some whiteheads, one papule on forehead that isn't inflamed anymore. That's pretty much it. Could be worse, and it HAS been worse, so I'm not really complaining.
Quite alright, but my PIH is still there. I'm also pretty fucking pissed because a guy at the mall tried to sell me a skin product claiming I had eczema, while pointing to my chest. THERE IS NOTHING ON MY CHEST. I have keratosis pilaris on my chest but it just FEELS rough, you can't see anything. There are no marks or bumps, nothing. He then started pointing to my cheeks saying that, "This is worse." I told him I wasn't interested and that I didn't have enough money, and he started to get quite rude and testy saying, "But it's really cheap! Only $15! Just buy one, one!" People these days...
I haven't had any major, skin-threatening zits for weeks. Just whiteheads at most. I got a papule the other day, but nothing serious. Barely noticeable, although it's taking quite some time to go away. At least it doesn't hurt now.
i read your post, deja. i'm one of the newer members and i'm just sad you're not going to be posting much anymore like you said, because i truly would have loved to get to know you better, haha. i just have tremendous respect for you for being brave enough to face your problems. good luck on your journey, and pop into the org every once in a while!
that is AMAZING. i would say you've had a 95% improvement. wow. and a sewing needle?? i thought you were using one of those proper needles you get from dermarolling websites.. i'm not sure about the safety of that, but i guess if it works... congrats.
no new zits, so thank god. it's weird though because my period is approaching and i usually get a deep painful zit or two BUT I DONT WANNA JINX MYSELF. ive been drinking plenty of water lately. but i have three new PIH marks from some whiteheads i popped. not dark but they are there and you can still see them. ugh. and that one new boxcar scar that's a lot deeper than all my other scars on my left cheek. i'm 50% ok and 50% depressed you could say.
i got new boxcar scar and it's deeper than any other scars i've ever had. on my left cheek, right in the middle. not too obvious in some lighting, but you can see how it ruins the texture of my skin in certain lighting. I JUST FUCKING WANT TO CRY.
spotthedifference - you look so adorable! you remind me of one of my friends, haha. your skin looks really good.
anyway i'm feeling not too good about my skin today. i don't have too much active acne, just one or two pimples really that i'm not TOO bothered about but my dark marks are so fucking stubborn fhhaueuywh
pretty damn great, actually! no new zits. i still have scars and some hyperpigmentation but NOWHERE near as bad as they used to be.. so, i feel good about that i still haven't bought my dermastamp because i'm doing extensive research.. hopefully i'll be able to place an order for one very soon because i've seen a lot of good reviews on it. i'm crossing my fingers.
icing for me i've found helps quite a bit. i had a stubborn zit once and i iced it for a couple of seconds and the next day it was completely gone, and i was amazed, so i would say it helps some. i havent had quite the same luck with bigger/deeper zits though. i also find that using diaper rash cream helps (lol it sounds weird but dont knock it til youve tried it)
