Since 16 I always had a “very”? mild acne that I just can't get rid off. It always starts (continues) the same it starts to tingle a little bit under the skin and after around 2-3 Days its starts to hurt under the skin and a red boils start to swell up. Most of the time they don’t form a “head” or puss they just sit there grow and hurt for around a week or two. Size differs from small ones that don’t bother me to around 2cm ones on my freaking nose for everyone to stare at. After around 1,5 Month they completely heal and disappear withouth a scar in the meantime new ones start to grow so I am never really “free”. I know this is a really small case compare to other poor girls and guys but I am now 29 years old and maybe someone here has some solution I simply can't get rid off it and I don’t think I will ever get accutane because apperantly its just not that “serious” :/ Here are some things I tried: B5 vitamine, zinc creams, apple vinegar, epsom salt, bpo 2,5% up to 5% for half a year but I started to get some allergic reaction and it didn’t really help anyway, tea tree oil, going vegan for half a year and of course some guidelines like only sleeping on the back, no face touching, no hot showers, no chocolate pizza soda or any junk food and lots of sleep and water.
Here are some pictures. I usually don’t take pictures of my bad times so keep in mind this is actually the best I have been in a long time its usually worse I hope anyone can make sense of this, i am not even sure if this counts as acne anyway :/ and sorry for my poor english, its not my first language.
First a full face picture:
This will just annoy me for the next two weeks :/
One on my cheek that is almost finished healing up. On my chin two new will form and start to hurt around next week.
Other cheek a small one that formed a head and on my chin new ones are already on their way.
