Topics I've Started

Reintroduced Milk, Brokeout.

30 August 2013 - 08:08 PM

Hi everyone.
I'd been completely clear for about 5 months from eliminating milk and refined sugar, and maintaining a healthy diet.
I was certain about sugar breaking me out, but decided to go milk free just for safe measure. Butter and cheese don't affect my skin, and I have been struggling with weight gain, so I decided to give milk a go. Bad idea. Three days of a daily cup of milk, and I've got three very red, very painful pimples.
Quite bummed about the dark spots these are going to leave behind.

What Kind Of Pimple Is This? (Picture Attached)

Finally got clear from my diet, stayed that way for months before reintroducing milk. 3 days in, and this pops up on my cheek. It's quite painful. I've been good about not touching it, but it's turning dark red either way.
Why is that? How can I minimise the scarring?
I'm fine with the occasional pimple now, it's the dark mark each one of them leaves behind that bothers me.

And the one near my eyebrow.. It's sort of a hard lump.
Is that a cyst?
Milk really does not agree with me.

Breaking Out On My Left Cheek. Never Had Acne There Before?

14 April 2013 - 07:47 AM

Hello everyone.


I don't understand why this is happening. My left cheek has always been my clear cheek. I was completely clear for about a year, from diet changes (eliminating refined sugar and milk completely), and when I did cheat and eat dessert, I'd get pimples on my right cheek and sometimes chin. 


The only thing I'm doing different is working out.

Why am I breaking out on my left cheek? I'm so upset that my clear side is now going to have dark spots. =/

Bp Hardens My Pimples?

10 November 2011 - 06:55 PM

I have these two pimples on my cheek that had come to head and looked pretty ripe. They probably would have been gone in a couple of days, but I wanted to speed things up, so I bought a tube of Benzac AC 2.5% BP gel.
I applied a bit on my zits before bed, and when I woke up the following morning, nothing changed except they just felt like really hard lumps.
Is that supposed to happen?
Forgive me if I sound like an idiot.
