Awful. Literally couldn't care less if the world ended today.
3 giant red patches of angry skin, 2 around each side of my mouth and 1 between my eyebrows, have persistently been on my face for a week now. Just been put on antibiotics, and i desperately need it to start calming down before I go back to uni next weekend.
I can't even make eye contact with my family. So fucking down it's unreal.
Complete despair. There doesn't seem any point in me even posting on acne.org anymore. I am never going to be able to treat my acne. I am never going to be able to get clear skin. And the worst part is that it's not even my own fault. Why does the world have to be so cruel?!
I feel exactly the same about everything you've said here. I've never felt so down in my life. I'm about ready to give up on everything. It's a fucking cruel, unfair world out there.
Saw my dad for the first time since starting college in August, and he says this is the worst my skin has ever been. I didn't think it was that bad
Your dad might just be worrying about your health and wanting you to move back home and using your acne as a way to get you to come back?
>This morning I woke up with no major facial concerns, nothing apparent wrong with me.
Tonight, I'm going to bed with both sides of my mouth inflamed, red, itchy, and looking f*cking awful.
HOW HAS THIS HAPPENED IN LESS THAN 12 HOURS?! How is my skin this fucking intolerant and weak to I don't even know what!!? I've done nothing today that could have possibly triggered this.
Now I'm going to look f*cking vile for Christmas. I really can't take this anymore.
It's probably just the cold if it's near your mouth. Do you fingers and toes ever feel cold for no reason at all? I Have Reynauds disease which causes my skin to split, flake and bleed sometimes.
My acne isn't look bad today. It's all lovely, flat hyperpigmentation now, which I can definitely work with for all the party pictures coming up. Now I'm just waiting for the monthly curse to come along and mess things up
Nope, it's not that. It's definitely perioral dermatitis.
