I'm having a good day! Finally started using BP and I feel like I'm on a good path right now!

I've been avoiding this website like the plague as I tend to fixate but i just had to come back to vent. My skin situation is getting worse day by day. I thought nothing could be worse than acne but having dermatitis too is too much. My skin is dry no matter how much moisturizer I use, red and broken out. I look bloody awful. I am 3 days in the SCD for leaky gut. I can't use any topicals at all due to the dermatitis and I have cysts on my neck.

People talk about it getting better. I've had 16 years dealing with this on and off and I've honestly lost all hope of it ever getting better. I'm numb to the whole situation. I wish I could go back in time and never have begun using treatments for my acne -maybe it would have gone away on its own like everyone else in my family.

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

 

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

The people in the "holistic" section of this forum will say that you just didn't try hard enough.

I hardly come on this site anymore.. Because my skin is doing well! I put concealer on one tiny, yet vibrant, red scar and im good to go! Im very red cheeked, but I think it's just something i need to live with.. My female friend even asked me if I was wearing blusher yesterdah which was upsetting.. But then she carried on to say how jealous she was and how I looked healthy compared to how pale she was!

Very fed up. My face is just one big mass of acne, scars, marks and enlarged pores. Make-up really just makes it look worse, so I'm a bit lost as to what to do really. I'm undergoing what scar treatments I've been recommended (TCA cross and dermapen), but if they're making any difference it's only minor. My skin tone and texture, in general and all over, is still terrible. Continuing on with this seemingly endless battle is getting very disheartening. At 26 I assumed the acne stage of things might at least be over with, but apparently that's not to be! If my face would at least stop breaking out, then I could look towards fixing some of the damage left behind rather than gaining new scars to add to the already existing collection :/
