RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

Seriously, even when I think I've beaten acne, this #^@& keeps creeping back on me. So, let's see....

I'm 20 years old (21 in a month). I've had acne since I was probably 14-15 years old. I've literally changed my LIFE to combat acne and for the most part I "had" it under control. Let's take a look at all the sacrifices I've made:

-I eat the same $&@# everyday to "avoid" acne. I don't eat: Dairy, fried foods, anything with dairy in it, greasy foods, candy, cake, etc, etc.

-I never drink alcohol anymore.

-I never go to the beach anymore or stay outdoors when the sun is out unless I'm working.

-Don't do a bunch of other things.

So, I do all this and I don't get breakouts and things are great. I still have some red spots and some minor scarring to deal with, no biggie. I'm going good for about 3-4 months and my confidence is raging and I'm chillin.... Then this. In the past 2 days I get 4 new pimples, mostly in "dangerous" areas (upper-cheeks where scarring is highly likely). So now I'm like, "WTF," I haven't done anything "wrong."

This just doesn't end. Looking back on this post, this post isn't even going anywhere. I'm not even sure why I'm posting this.

Anyways, this sucks. I've also lurked on this website for a while and had a seperate account but I don't remember what it was so i re-registered.

Thanks for reading.

I'm in the same situation as you. I mostly have my acne under control and healing... So sometimes these suckers can't be killed and whatever we do they manage to come out and bite us back. Just know by next week it should heal and you hopefully don't get any new ones.

Accutane cleared me up for three months, but the acne is returning. As expected really, I just hope it'll stay calm and not explode like it did before accutane. Oh, well.. Shit happens.


Your shortcomings become shortcomings when you make them your shortcomings.
