#3161459 Drinking Aloe Vera Juice For Jawline Acne?

Posted by wicky on 23 September 2011 - 02:45 PM

I'd love to know the answer to this as well. I wake to these red raised bumps every single day and they are always on my jawline close to my neck. Sometimes they start out flat and become raised within a day then linger for about a week.  I thought they were an allergy to a particular food but after a year of journaling everything I eat and ingest I am no closer to figuring out what food, if any causes them.  I first thought it was a gluten thing as everytime I ate pizza or a bagel I would get one of these welt like bumps.  I stopped gluten, dairy, eggs and processed food and only eat lean meats and good grains.  I also only eat blueberries!!  I was eating more fruits but if I got a bump after eating any other fruits I would then cut them out. I go thru periods where I dont get them for several days, even weeks and then bam!!  This past week has been bad for me and I now feel like I've developed food phobias.  I as well have tried Saw Palmetto and even Spironolactone would no positive results...Lets keep hoping

#3049749 Skin Picking is Ruining my Life

Posted by wicky on 15 March 2011 - 08:57 AM

Reading this thread has made me feel like im not a freak and im not alone with all the demented feelings we get reagarding our faces.  Im 43 yrs old and i think of my skin 24 hrs a day. I even think of while im sleeping. I mean i roll over and the minute im conscious i actually think of my skin.  I too spend hrs in the bathroom examining my face from every angle.  I then to the rest of the mirrors in my house and look there as well because different lighting produces different results.  I mostly pick at my blackheads and embedded whiteheads because the only way they go away is to extract them.  Even if you use somethiing like mandelic acid to release it, it still needs to come out.  As i sit here writing this im house bound today because of what i did last night.  I had a white dot under my lip that was  a closed pore with something trapped in it. I applied a sal acid paste to dry it up the night before only to wake with it still there and bulging just needing to be released.  I put a warm washcloth over to open the pore and applied gentle pressure with my blackhead remover.  A llittle white plug shot out and i was so relieved. Its like winning the lottery. I guess it didnt get the entire core so i picked with my tweezer a little bit and this morning its not coverable at all becuse the core is still there...So now what,,try and dry it up only to have it sprout again in several weeks or even days.  I dont get what we are suppose to do when these things need to come out..just leave them?  I rarely pop a pimple because there isnt usually a core or hard plug in there.  I found this paste by clean and clear works great to dry it up.  What we all need to do is find the answer to why we are getting them in the first place..I dont have the answer and am desperate to get my life back.  I am a horrible person who neglects by husband, kids and social functions because i cant stop thinking of my skin.  what is wrong with me?
