    So what about lemon juice? Doesn't it have bleaching properties or whatever? Would that only work on bleaching the brown spots? Or will it work on red spots?

    Scary. I just got my passport photo taken yday and my face fell as soon as I saw it...I wish they let me edit red marks before printing.

    When you waste hours of your life sitting in front of the mirror, covering the bits of your face with acne and imagining what your face would look like without those spots.
    When you wish you could move that one bad zit over to another spot of your face where it's less noticeable.

    No not really. If someone else with acne is looking at my actually makes me feel fine because I know they're battling the same thing I am. I feel much more relaxed around them. It's when someone with picture perfect flawless skin is staring at my acne...that's when I feel really self-conscious.

    Yeah I gotta say...whenever I go see my derm it seems like she's trying to rush me out of her office. While I'm still in the middle of telling her what's wrong with my skin, she already has her prescription pad out and she's writing crap down. Oh well.

    I feel ya. I used to be SO happy during those weeks in between my period because those were my clear weeks. Then all hell would break loose. I suggest going to your derm and trying something else? Birth control screwed me over completely (I got a rare disease from it and when I got off it, my acne was 10x worse than it ever was before) but my derm prescribed me Clindamycin and Differin and I've been able to avoid the crazy cyst breakouts for a couple months now! Good luck Chin up! I'm right there with skin is far from perfect right now...but there's hope!

    I feel ya. Damn friends with flawless skin. My roomie will constantly complain about getting another "pimple"....when it's actually a tiny flesh-colored bump that goes away in a couple days time. Girl clearly hasn't ever experienced the wrath of a cyst.

    Today I feel just as I've felt for the past few weeks. Crappy. I can't seem to avoid mirrors. And I'm still angry at myself for picking at that clogged pore on my nose, which resulted in a scab, which has now left a giant red splotch. I'm about to go put some makeup on to run some errands...let's see how well I can cover this beast up. Hate acne hate acne hate acne.

    I just posted a topic like this in the cystic acne board.....I didn't think to look for a thread here.

    But this happened to me too! I took Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo for 3 months over a year ago and my skin has been freaking out for over 9 months now. It's ridiculous and only getting worse....and I had clear skin before going on BCP. When will this madness end? I hope soon...I mean come on I was only on the pill for a couple months. I can't believe my skin is still in freak-out mode.

    I just talked to my mom and she is completely against going to the derm and getting a cortisone shot. There's nothing I can do to talk her into it.

    I'm sitting here severely depressed right now. I can't believe I'm letting this pimple get to me but it really is. I seriously don't know what to do with it anymore. It won't come to a head, it won't go down, it won't get any less BLOOD RED. It's the size of a exaggeration. It's rock hard and huge...feels like a giant marble underneath my skin. It hurts like a bitch and I just had a good cry about it.

    I just started spring break and I had so many plans to go out....and now I've cancelled all of them because I'm definitely not going to let anyone see this sucker in broad daylight. I feel miserable. And I've been waiting for spring break all quarter...I've been so stressed out and I was so excited to just relax and enjoy the week. Now I just want to crawl into a hole and die...I just sat in the mirror for an entire hour staring at that pimple and thinking of how happy I would be if it just magically disappeared.....

    I feel like hell. Knowing my luck, this won't even go away before school starts back up again. You have no idea how badly I want it to come to a head...I just want to get all the gunk out...but now I feel like there IS no gunk because no matter how hard I try, it's still a big red lump.

    Headless pimple!
    I've had a giant cyst on my forehead for over a week now and it's not going down at ALL no matter how much ice I put on it or ibuprofen I take. In fact it's getting bigger, more painful, redder, and harder. It's evil. I swear it's the size of a dime and impossible to hide.

    I figure since it won't sink down and go away on its own, I'll try to bring it to a head. But after a weeks worth of warm's just not coming to a head. Do cystic pimples never come to a head? I have Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask on my face right now...hoping it may draw it up to the surface. It feels like a rock hard ball underneath the skin. I wish it would just leak out on its own
