the spots are likely leftover hyperpigmentation...try some glycolic acid, something like 8-10%, Dan sells one here on acne.org, and there is an alpha hydrox enhanced lotion on amazon


if you have no money, it's cheap and works on helping to fade those marks

okay, they aren't cysts-  count your blessings that they aren't and don't use that word-  I've literally had hundreds, they are deep under the skin and they NEVER come to a head, they linger there for months....so no cysts


you have pustular acne, what are you using to control it?  the BP routine on this site will help with that- you need patience and to stick with a good routine for 30 days-


tell us what FULL routines you've tried and for how long


how is your diet?  do you eat a lot of dairy and processed foods?

have you seen a derm who is experienced in laser treatments?  you should go for a consult....


if money is a problem then go to the owndoc.com site, there is a story and picture of scars similar to you, and the fellow there dermarolled for close to a year, and saw great improvement.....I'm a derma stamp person myself, slow and steady improvement and CHEAP


and you aren't ugly, there is a lot more to you than the scars-  chin up, get a plan to improve them and get out there a live-  looks like you beat the active acne, there is a victory there to be celebrated!

In Topic: Stridex Pads Help Clear Backne

here's another tip...try a weekly sea salt soak bath...or more if you have the time


search on this site for those who have used the sea salt baths....and if you can, opt for the dead sea salt you can buy in bulk on line


this way you have the ocean in your tub....sea salt can be healing...again search this site


and good for you that you've found something that works


another tip- make your own cleansing pad...use distilled water and buy a bottle of salicylic acid toner, add a little hibiclens or witch hazel, you make up the mixture to the %s you want then I saved the old containers from stridex, put clean dry plain cotton pads in the container and put the liquid on top

In Topic: Devilish Dairy *please Read If You Suffer From Cystic Acne*

07 September 2014 - 11:00 AM

couldn't agree more, gluten and dairy were the culprits for my cystic acne...and I suffered for years


it's not easy to do, but for me, it was the 'cure'


it won't work for everyone as all causes are unique in each individual, but why wouldn't you at least try it!  that's what I always recommend first


congrats to you, now stick with it!
