What Kind Of Acne Is This On My Cheek? Pic Included

6 posts in this topic

The red bumps on my cheek (which are much more visible in normal light) do not go away, don't pop, nothing. They are just there and I have tried everything (BP, Salycic acid, oral antibiotics). Has anyone had this and found a way to get rid of it?

oops here it is

If you've tried a lot of those things are you positive it's not a rash? try putting somthing like sudocreme on it and check


Started (Ro)Accutane :)

Month 1- 20mg

Month 2- 50mg

Month 3- 50mg

I literally do not care what you think about accutane, it was MY choice to take it, respect that.

hmmm probably closed comodones then as the other poster says. not too much experience with them, but possibly add in an exfoliation stage to your routine.

So youve tried antibiotics, so we know either youre immune to those antibiotics or its not a bacteria problem

It could be hormonal, in which case thats just something youll have to live with unless you do a treatment

It could also be stress related, have you tried acupuncture?

In all honesty it could be anything thats causing your acne, and if youve tried BP and oral antibiotics, it could be that retnoids are your only other option besides accutane (in terms of treatment).

I would suggest

a) stop popping your pimples, trust me it only makes them last longer and get more badass

b) going to a (possibly different) dermatologist and getting info on retnoids, like retin-a, ziana, and even tazorac if your doctor thinks it would be right for your skin.

There are also lazer light treatments, which ive heard good things about, however they are a pain in the ass to get done and cost a fortune.

Good luck!
