It doesn't look bad really, it looks like you have minimal-no scarring. Which is something you should be extremely thankful for! As a topical I would try apple cider vinegar, the smell is awful.. but the results are amazing! It'll clear the area of bacteria and in about 3 days I GUARENTEE results. go to a derm about pills or somehing to treat internally. I really would only resort to accutane as a last option though. Good luck bud!
dont bs me its bad. its worse in real life than the pictures. i cant believe i only posted that one week ago. everything is full of painful whiteheads on my jawline now. i dont even know how to freakin moisturize or cleanse without aggravating them. i am actually glad that i am being let go from my part time job because i cant even bare to go out in public. this is pathetic, acne has overpowered my life, and yes i know im weak for letting it happen.
the derm recommended doryx along with benzaclimin and retin a. im reluctant to start. i know antibiotics dont really help in the long run, and im just scared the topicals will increase redness and the probability that marks will stay in the form of hyperpigmentation. am i right in thinking that?
i guess i might as well just get these prescriptions filled though. im already not living my life, im already planning to stay inside alone as much as i can now until this improves. do you guys think the oral + topicals are the way to go right now? would accutane honestly be a better option overall for me or should i do this standard regimen that my derm prescribed? thoughts please
ive been eating super healthy, i pray to god it pays off a month from now. im drinking a green smoothie once a day. i am just praying for some help...should i start the prescriptions? i understand it could make it worse before it gets better, but i just need an honest real answer if its going to cause more permanent damage in any possible way? i think i have mild cystic acne. and im disgusted by my jaw how there's so many ITCHY TENDER whiteheads clumped together with these red INFLAMED bumps. WTF is going on. is an oral + topical the best thing for my type of acne right now? yes its similar to the picture in my first post, but i feel like its gotten worse now. they just keep coming even when i try not to do anything all day. i dont even know how to touch them when i need to moisturize without freaking BREAKING the whiteheads or aggravating them. WHAT DO I DO
also ive tried ACV as a topical before. it really didnt make a difference. and i dont even think i can apply it right now its so tender and inflamed without breaking the whiteheads...idk what to do. im not sure how i'll apply topicals either in the area, i guess i should just go over the whiteheads with my fingers regardless of if i ibreak them or not? this is SO FRUSTRATING.
ive also drank ACV before, 2tsp mixed in 8oz water a day. i did that for a while and honestly saw no improvement. thanks for the ACV suggestion but im not going to do that at the moment.
please help with any advice or thoughts regarding my post above this one
