  1. Hi im 16 and recently I've been getting really bad acne. It's mostly redness and hyperpigmentation with the occasional whiteheads. I got on Epiduo and took it for 2 months but didn't notice any effect, it was staining my clothes and my bedsheets, and was really annoying and depressing to use. I researched online and saw that Tea Tree Oil was good for my type of acne. I've used it for a couple days now, and the redness seems to be slightly better although I have more whiteheads. im also taking proderma 100mg every night. I'd like to know your opinion on the matter: should I use Epiduo or Tea Tree Oil? Which is best for redness and hyperpigmentation? It's really bad and I'm kinda desperate for a solution...
  2. I have this back acne for more than 10 years now, I think this is genetic. Does anyone have the same problem as me? and how you guys cure it?. Currently, I am using benzoyl peroxide, it does help with breakout but it doesn't really cure it. I'm thinking of using apple cider vinegar and st. ives apricot scruber, I heard a lot of people using this remedies and the result quite satisfying. I will keep you guys updated about my progress, hopefully, I can get rid of it asap.
  3. Day 6

    Well two hard bumps on my chin. Giant pimple on left cheek popped. Still have several on the right cheeks. I think all the closed comer ones are turning into pimples now. Forehead comodones are getting flatter but they are not completely gone. One large pimple is forming in between my eyebrows. Still pretty optimistic! I'll keep going!

  5. Unknown lumps on nose?

    I have these lumps on my nose!! They will not go away. I've been using everything. Clindamycin, face masks, constantly washing. It's been on my nose for a few years now and I'm absolutely tired of it.. I'm going to 12 hour school at the moment and it's full of juvenile delinquents so yes they're a bit cruel and I cover my face as much as possible. No foundation or powder covers them up at all and it's lead me to constantly bring myself down everyday. The first thing I do when waking up in the morning is looking into the mirror and literally praying that it goes away and I do not even know if it's acne. I Have a dermatologist appointment Thursday but I'm afraid they'll just tell me I have acne against and just continue to use clindamycin.
  6. I am currently taking Accutane 1 capsule each day (40mg). It's day 11 since I started and my face just more red that it was. I also read that you have to take cold showers because it's better for breakouts. I did not feel any side aftect yet. That means Accuatne is not working ? If I take cold showers the redness is gonna disappear? Thank you all.

  8. Been on Yasmin pill for two weeks, seems to half be clearing up but half making spots rise to the surface into painful cystic whiteheads. Extremely depressed. Don't know what to do. Is this acne or scars mainly? How can I get rid of it? Mainly cheek area.
  9. Hello all,My name is Harvey and I suffered from severe acne from the ages 13-15. In this post I'm going to tell you how I got rid of my acne covered face, and made it acne free. Firstly, here's my story.I had tried almost everything, antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, face masks etc... the list goes on. Nothing had worked for me, so my dermatologist suggested that I start a course on Isotretinoin, more commonly known as Accutane. I started on 30mg, and had not much hope. I was constantly panicking about the breakouts on accutane, skin dryness, allergic reactions and so on. I was totally overthinking everything, it would actually all be okay.My acne got worse and worse, accutane appeared to be useless. My dermatologist upped my dosage to 40mg, and suggested I use Epiduo benzoyl peroxide too (to use once a day in the evenings) . Still, my acne was bad, and was seeing no signs of improvement. Then I took the acne.org quiz (http://www.acne.org/personalized-advice.html). This is where the improvement started to happen.It gave me VERY useful tips, like not to have long hot showers, clean your face twice a day, do not touch your face, be gentle when applying products to face and some others. I stopped using E45 on my face to combat the dryness, and started usingCetaphil moisturising cream. This was much lighter on the face, and was just as effective at stopping/combating dryness. I also started to use Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. I applied both of these in the morning and evening.I was still not seeing results, but suddenly, my acne dramatically cleared up in about two weeks. I was virtually spot free! I want this story to show you that you need to stay faithful and positive! I had such bad acne, and in basically two weeks it was all gone. The same can happen to you!So... here is why I think my skin cleared up,1. I stopped having long hot showers, and Instead had shorter cooler showers2. I started to wash my face twice a day with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser 3. I started to use Cetaphil moisturising cream (non-comodogenic) instead of heavy, oily E45 4. I was on Accutane 5. I was more gentle with my face 6. I stopped picking/popping my spots 7. I drank lots of water 8. I did not eat as many greasy/sugary foods 9. I started going to the gym 3 times a week 10. I started having a fruit smoothie every morning (nutribullet). I hope this has helped you! I have attached a picture of what it was like at its worst and now at its best PS: Accutane is totally worth it!!!
  10. Hey Y'all, I have a question about my experience with these medications and would love to know if you have experienced the same or what your opinion is. So I have had a case of cystic acne that I have been trying to get rid of for 10 months now and have tried numerous medications with no luck. However, my newest medications I have been prescribed have been Acanya at night and taking Bactrim DS and Aldactone once a day. I am still consistently breaking out everyday. I have been on these medications for a few weeks so not that long but I feel like my break outs should have at least maybe slowed down a little? I know when you start taking new acne products especially topical creams your skin can break out more at first to get everything to the surface before it clears up. Has anyone that has been on the same treatment plan or Acanya tell me if this has happened to them? I just don't wanna waste another 2 months on a product that won't work. Thank you so much!

  13. Came to give back.

    The picture added was September of 16'. it's honestly crazy how we forget about the hardest times of our lives... and move on like it was nothing. april 15, 2017. it has been about 7 months since this photo. i am now basically clear. No cysts AT ALL. Just a few red marks which seems to clear naturally. I even forgot I had acne before, because now I've been busy with life. but recently came across a video about acne, and was glad I had the confidence to take these photos during the hardest time of my life. I just want to say... it really does get better. I didn't believe it. You may not either, but that's why I decided to come back to give back. Ask any question and concerns and I will gladly resolve all your CURRENT issues :). Trust me, I think i've had it the worst... I could tell my entire story, but I'd rather answer specific questions
  14. please help, since the young age of 12 I've been suffering from nodular/cystic acne on my chin. These pimples get huge and always form a head. I've changed my diet, only drink water, no dairy, sugar or gluten, I recently started taking omega 3, turmeric, zinc, and vitex! I've taken vitex before and it cleared my acne for 8 weeks and then it came back(I wasn't eating healthy back hen! I've taken birth control and that cleared all my acne except I still got a huge cyst before my period. Lately I've been getting a nodular pimple ever week sometimes twice a week they're so massive... since changing my diet acne has cleared up on my forehead but my cheeks still get blackheads whiteheads and sometimes cyst. growing up my acne was really only on my chin and nose and in highschool it slowly spread to my forehead and then to my cheeks! I also get pimples above my mouth that are huge painful and inflamed. I don't get more than 5 pimples a week but they're all huge inflamed and embrassaing
  15. Hi there, just some pretty long essay lol introduction bout my acne life which I wanted to share around and hope it may help out to those who are experiencing the same issue. I'm 25 this year, my first breakout started around year 2007. Like how acne used to develop during raging hormones of puberty. Small red bumps, not too many and pretty minor. Not till a year or 2 later when I started to realize there's this small bumps which unlike normal acne. It does not develop the small yellow heads and will last for more than a month. Didn't realize that was actually called Acne Conglobata until recently. That's when I was recommended to take Accutane by my dermatologist. Started taking 10 mg of Accutane for around 2 years. Not only it did not help but things got worse. The acne vulgarities are like everywhere from face to my chest and back. There were some Conglobatas but not many, around 2-3. Somehow they only grow on my face only. Since 10 mg did not work, I was then given 20 mg of Accutane per day. After a year on 20 mg of Accutane per day, the normal acnes on my face, chest and back were a lot lesser and less likely to breakout except for the Conglobatas. The number of acne Conglobatas can range from 2-8, they last for around 2-6 months each. This is when it started to cause severe scars which are almost permanent. The main issue with this Conglobata is it can combine together if there are 2-3 close together and form an even bigger lump which are seriously painful. Even if I were to not force them to pop, it will just bleed itself out after the top layer of the skin gets thinner as it grows. Sounds like some kind of horror movie when there are tons of blood flowing on the face, lol. Not only that, the pain keeps me awake at night whenever I accidentally roll over to the side of the face with it. Hence, I had no choice but to take Cortisone shots and Prednisone pills to control them. Cortisone shots and Prednisone pills are the same. They are a type of steroids which reduces pain and inflammations. Cortisone shots are pretty painful during the first 1-3 hours because after the injections, the Conglobatas swell up but the pain goes away later on, allowing me to sleep peacefully at night. It takes around 3-5 days for them to almost fully subside. Almost every 2-3 months I had to return to the dermatologist for this treatment, Cortisone shots with 1 week dosage of Prednisone to have it disappear temporarily until a new one grows. Therefore, I took 20 mg of Accutane per day and Cortisone/Prednisone around every 2-3 months for around 2 years or so, until both my Acne Vulgaris and Conglobata stopped appearing. I was quite happy when the breakouts stopped. Although there are still scars visible but at least there are no acnes, able to look into the eyes of another person when talking as well as sleeping peacefully at night. Started to workout as well, taking Whey Proteins (bad idea I guess) and eating all sorts of food during those periods. Pretty enjoyable moments until the dream ended after a year. There were no Acne Vulgaris breakouts but Conglobatas slowly appearing like a frequency of once a month. Hence, I only went back to the dermatologist for Cortisone shots every few months but never planned to take Accutane again. Soon I realized the breakouts of Acne Conglobata on my face was back. There were few to none Acne Vulgaris which I believed the Accutane helped in stopping them. Wasn't sure but I was told by the Doc that it might be caused by the Whey Protein. Hence, I had no choice but to retake the Accutane treatment again with the steroids once in awhile to prevent scarring. Since then, the Accutane never helped in stopping the Conglobatas even after the dosage was increased from 20 mg to 40 mg per day. That's when I went and tried the Acneorg Regimen Kit. Like they said it takes some time for the skin to get used to it, my skin were flaky and peeling like mad. After 3-6 months of usage I noticed there were entirely no Acne Vulgaris, most of the scars were lightened (probably because of the insane dry skin peelings) but there were still some Acne Conglobatas. I guess it does help but just a little in my case. I bought a bottle of zinc+copper supplement after reading some reviews here but made my skin 10x worse after a week. I even tried visiting Immunology Specialist to see if I could get a blood test to check if there is a list of food which I am allergic to, but turned down by the Doc and was recommended with Medik8 acne cream, cleanser and told to continue with my Accutane treatment instead lol. Although rejected but I insist in believing that my Acne Conglobatas are caused by food allergens. No idea why but many of these doctors doesn't believe food allergens may cause acne. Until last year my dermatologist went for some conference discussing bout my kind of acne issue and pointed out that it should be bad antibodies causing them. I was then given to tryout a dosage of Prednisone from 40 mg slowly reduced to 5 mg/day for 3 months. It kinda suppressed the Conglobatas for few months even after the treatment. Once again, they came back from the grave . Though this time, I have stopped taking Accutanes and those Steroids since they have pretty nasty side effects if I should continue. Something came to my mind, I remembered the dermatologist mentioned bout bad antibodies causing these Acne Conglobatas and I used to have once in awhile itchy skin without realizing that I have been scratching for years. Depending on what kind of food I take, it may cause my skin to itch a little, might form Urticaria if severe but so far I have only experienced Urticaria 3-4 times since 2009. Based on these points I have came to an assumption that food which I am allergic to will cause Acne Conglobata. Since then, I have been monitoring my skin condition and the foods I take every week in mind (too lazy to write them down). So far I have found out some foods which are causing my acnes. All the types of nuts from Peanuts to Almonds, Pistachio and so on. Another one is sesame seeds, realized breakouts after eating foods which contains sesame oils. 1-2 Acne Conglobatas will grow after 3-7 days from taking these food allergens which is what I have found out. Hence, I try my best at avoiding these foods by reading the ingredient labels beforehand. For example chocolates, some despite having zero nuts do have nut contamination noted on the food label. I will take anti-histamines for skin rash if I were to notice any skin rashes/irritations since sometimes it's hard to tell what ingredients was used when dining outside. In conclusion, for the past 6 months I am able to control the Acne Conglobatas without the help of Accutane and steroids. Just some anti-histamine for a few days to a week if one does grows. I have also noticed they tend to recover a lot quicker like within a month, unlike before up to 6 months and even bleed by itself. Based on these, I can safely assume that certain food allergens causes my skin to itch and makes it inflamed. Thus, any irritation done to the skin, be it from scratching or friction from pillows will easily cause the formation of Acne Conglobatas. Lastly, some product which I am still using right now is the Benzoyl Peroxide from Acneorg or Innisfree (bija trouble spot essence) and Medik8 Pro Cleanser (liked this cause the salicylic acid is pretty friendly on the skin unlike Acneorg's AHA+ which can be too strong for exfoliation). Not sure bout toner/moisturizers yet. Would be glad if others can share the type of food they are allergic to in here as well as other tips to conquer this nasty p.o.s Acne Conglobata..
  16. I just want to share with you my experience with accutane, because some people here just simply leave this website when their acne is gone and they continue with their life. Heres a little background story. I'm an 18 years old male, i was a very social person. When i was in high school i used to attend social events, party, meet new people, go to gym, jog almost everyday, talk to girls, etc etc talking in front a lot of people was a simple thing to me and overall i was a very confident man. I started getting acne when i was 11. It was all over my back (worst one), my chest, my upper arms and face. When i was 14 a derm prescribed me doxycycline for a month with some creams and it cleared my face (not body acnes though). After that it was only mild acne, it did not really affect my life because you can simply cover body acnes by proper clothing and my face acne was very mild, its like one of those pimples you get here and there that go away in couple of days without leaving significant spots, let alone scars. I had relatively clear skin for a couple of years. I got admitted into one of the top public law schools in the country and was very happy because my dream was to become a succesful lawyer. After entering college my face broke out horribly, i started getting red lumps all over my cheeks (nodular acne). I constantly visited my derm to get cortisone injections every 2 weeks. I have never had this kind of acne before, my derm prescribed me doxycycline again for a month but it did not work and it was steadily getting worse. I switched to another derm and he prescribed me minocycyline along with BP creams for about 2 months, which did not work either, only irritating my face. At this point, acne greatly ruined my life, i lost my self esteem. My grade dropped significantly, i lost contact with my friends because i didnt reply to their texts and kept refusing to go out with them because i was very embarrased with my face, i stayed in my room all day watching youtube videos and browsing internet trying to find a way on how to "cure" this acne. I was scared to look at people in the eyes when talking to them and i always avoided sun and bright lights. Some severe acne sufferers must know this feeling. I deleted my social media accounts, thinking about quitting college and even thoughts of comitting suicide came to my mind because of how sad and depressing my life had became. My parents noticed this and they suggested me to see a psychologist, but i knew i didnt need a psychologist because what i really wanted was clear skin. I switched to another derm again and i told him how acne had affected me, i told him that i became a very asocial person and at one point i cried because some of the noduls really hurted and did not go away for more than 2 weeks. He prescribed me accutane for 6 months starting from mid november 2014, so i had just finished accutane recently totalling about 137-140mg/kg cumulative dose. In the middle of the course i developed cysts and it surprised me because this was the first time i had cystic acne, it DEFINITELY looked worse than before i started accutane. I thought about quitting accutane thinking it was causing this cystic acne, but my face already looked bad so i was like "why dont give it a try? your face looks f'ed up anyway" and decided to continue. I kept breaking out throughout the course until the very last month 6, then suddenly it stopped. Now its been 3 weeks since i stopped accutane and my face is clear of acne. Im very happy because now i can touch my face without feeling any bumps and no need to worry about new pimples. Now that my acne has gone, it left me with ugly red marks/Post Inflammatory Erythema and hyperpigmentation. My doctor was glad that my acne now seems to be "under control", i discussed to my derm about ways to get rid of these marks and he said that vbeam laser treatment will work wonderful to deal with that problem but i should wait for at least 2 months after finishing my last accutane pills. Overall im very happy with accutane because it changed my life, im no longer having any acne on my face, my chest, my arm, or my back. Im slowly regaining my confidence back, id absolutely go for second course if my acne comes back. No doubt. These are the side effects i got when i was on accutane and how i dealt with them: 1. Dry and peeling skin (obviously) - use moisturizer 2. Dry lips - lip balm 3. Dry eyes - artificial tear drop 4. Mild nose bleed - happened 3 times then it stopped, didnt do anything 5. Flushing on cheeks when exercising/exposed to high temperature - will be fixed by vbeam perfecta 6. This one sounds ridiculous but at the last 2 months my derm bumped the dose to 80mg/day and my skin became very dry. Since i am a circumcised male, the tip of my P... became very dry and sensitive it felt kind of weird and tingling when mr. sniffles touched underwear, but this can be fixed by applying vaseline or any kind of moisturizer on it.
  17. Hello my name is Jared and I have been dealing with pretty bad acne from a result of antibiotics for over a year now. Just recently I have been put on Accutane and am currently on my third week. Recently, I have been paranoid with this question, that question is DOES EXCESSIVE MASTURBATION AFFECT YOUR ACCUTANE TREATMENT?, (as in doesn't make Accutane work). Like said I am on my third week and have seen no improvements so far, just side effects. I know this is just the beginning of my treatment but I'm scarred. I don't want to mess up. A lot of $$$$ for this drug. I mostly masturbate once a day (I'm one of those bored masturbaters) . Either way, I vowed to stop MASTERBATING! I'm going cold turkey. TBH jacking off doesnt cause me break out, i just scared that scientifically the overall effectiveness of Accutane is diminishing or drains when I umm... release. Sorry the whole weird and unusual topic, I hope get some answers and opinions. Here are some images of my acne.b
  18. DIFFERIN INITIAL BREAKOUT

    I started DIFFERIN 0.1% about 10 days ago and have already had a massive breakout. Like I can't leave the house because makeup can't even cover it breakout. It is so bad but I would get through it if I knew it was working. Is it normal to breakout immediately? And if I have the breakout so early on, is there hope that I will have clearer skin/see an improvement before 8 weeks? I just need reassurance that it actually works and I'm not going through the embarrassing breakout for nothing
  19. Please help, how long does the initial breakout on DIFFERIN 0.1% last? I've had breakouts since day one. I've heard people say you get 2 weeks of breakouts then I have heard people say 4 months of breakout? What was it like for you?
  20. Hello! im going to ask a simple question to the people suffered from acne and now dealing with scarring. my age is 18.I had flawless skin 1 year ago(not even a single scar on whole body) but then i had worst breakout ever.now i controlled my acne but it left hyperpigmentation+redness+lots of scars some are deep and red . So lets come to questions.. Do redness make scars look way worse ugly than it really is? Does new scar look bad and ugly and will they heal to a point where they become invisible and unnoticeable? please answer these because i spend hours in front of mirror and cry like baby.just regrets.bcz the breakout happnd bcz of using too many harsh products on my skin and sweat. Do redness make scar look alot deeper? Does anyone saw improvement in thier scars after waiting 1 year? Sorry for too many questions. But please answer me to clear my doubts.i will be gratful for every answer i will recieve. Thanks ☺
  21. I have had persistent acne since the age of 13. I am currently 16 and have tried numerous rounds of different antibiotics including lymecycline, doxycycline, and oxytetracycline. These methods of treatment failed to work, I have also been taking antibiotocs in conjunction with topical treatments such as differin, zinertyt and clindamaycin phosphate, all of which have failed to improve my skin in the slightest. I have avoided inflamattory foods, and have considered my diet thoroughly, it seems my acne is purely hormonal. Would my skin qualify for accutane, or a stronger form of medication at least?
  22. What Is My Next Step?

    I'm a 21 male with acne on my face. I first got acne when I was a preteen and i've never been clear since. I did get it on my back, shoulders, and legs, but that has since cleared up. I'm a vegetarian, and try to eat very little dairy, and don't eat junk food or fast-food. I've broken habits of pinching/touching my face and acne, and by now lost my acne scars. I do however wear makeup, mostly foundation and powder on top of that. I only wear hypoallergenic products, and always wash it off the moment i'm home for the day. I wash my face with facial scrub in hot water twice a day, morning and night, and use a facial moisturizer after because I have very dry skin. (I've tested makeup-free periods of time up to 2-3 weeks, but it makes no difference). In the past i've used peel pads, tazorac, and a bunch of different products with benzoyl peroxide, but all of those dry out my skin a lot and give me redness. My best success has been in minocycline, and it works well in reducing and preventing the severity of my acne. The issue is that I have never taken it regularly, because my dermatologist only gives me 30 days to "take as needed" over 3-4 months. I usually use it all within the first month and a half. We briefly discussed trying accutane a few months ago, but my dermatologist changed their mind because they were concerned it would have reactions to my ADHD meds (Intuniv and Adderall) despite my doctor clearing the accutane as fine. I still have acne. I haven't seen my nose free from blackheads in eight years. It doesn't come in waves, it's constant spots around my face (and earlobes) and they take turns flaring and disappearing. I have a healthy diet, healthy skin practices, and religiously clean it. It DOES spike in severity when im stressed, anxious, and have had no sleep. So my questions are: 1. Is it my makeup? Like I said, i've done makeup-free breaks for weeks and it makes not difference. And I feel very uncomfortable in public without it. 2. Is it entirely stress-induced? I'm always overwhelmed, i'm a working college student, so its unavoidable. Will it maybe go away when I graduate and life chills? 3. Should I push for accutane, or find a new dermatologist that'll consider it? I know accutane is for more extreme cases, but i'm so tired of this... Any advice would be great, as I have an upcoming appointment with my dermatologist in two days. Thank you!
  23. Girls can pass on their bad genetics no matter how ugly they are because they are the most important sex, because they create new life. Most guys are disposable. A short thin girl will get called petite and cute, and then she reproduces and creates a short ugly guy that will get called a scrawny weakling his whole life. All guys, except for tall attractive guys will date almost anything as long as she isn't obese or anorexic thin. When I say bad acne I mean it has to all be on your face, body acne doesn't matter. Like this
  24. Good day! My name is Dan and I wan to know how to end this miserable acne on my nose. I've been dealing with this since 2011 and still, no difference. I've used products: Cleansers, Moisturizers, Tea Tree Oil facial wash, honey, etc. I've also watched Youtube videos about this humiliation. This is my first time in this group. I was told before that it would just go away BUT NO!!! My brother has acne before but that just lasted for a year and now, his face is like diamond. I did exactly what he did to cure it but NO LUCK!!! I asked him what he did but he wouldn't tell. They don't care about my problems. I've been bullied ever since I got this. Everyday I hear someone who talks about my nose, I think of suicide. I'm not joking. I know that suicide won't lead me anywhere but I just can't take it anymore. I can show you my nose picture. Please help me. I've never been to a dermatologist because it's too expensive. I'm from the Philippines and I also wanted to try ACNE.ORG products but it's not available here through drugstores. I need to ship it or use third-party services to do so. Experience: I get large cystic pimples every week. Whenever the other one is cured, another 1 or 2 breaks out. It seems unlimited. The scars of the cured pimple is really visible. I don't touch them, I don't pop or anything. i just leave them and IT WILL TAKE A MONTH OR 2 before a single huge pimple to cure. While it's on the process of curing, another one or two breaks out again. I'm literally crying while writing this. I just can't do anything about it. I ask God why I'm getting this curse. I wash my face EVERYDAY and before I go to so sleep. I just don't know WHY and HOW to cure it!!! Please help me!!!! :'(
  25. Hi guys, I've been on accutane for 1.5 months and honestly my face has never been better (prolly because of being on tazorac a year before) only 3 small zits on my face and prolly 3 big ones on my necks 5 big ones on my upper back, a massive one on my lower back and one massive one on my chest, because I had severe Bacne for year I'm wondering if anyone's had experience on how Bacne scars look afterwards, there seems to be no articles online and if you have any questions feel free to ask me
