Enlarged Pores On My Chest... Could It Be Kp?

25 April 2013 - 08:42 PM

I have these odd things on my chest that look like big pores and blackheads. I also have some flesh colored bumps. They aren't like regular pimples. If i squeeze them, tiny white grains come out.

 

I wash my body with Head & Shoulders classic clean shampoo but these things won't go away. I'd post pictures but my chest looks so bad right now because I just picked the sh*t out of it. It's all red and inflamed :(

 

Does anyone else have the same problem?


Went On A Vegan, Gluten Free Diet And I'm Still Breaking Out? What The Heck Am I Do...

24 April 2013 - 11:26 AM

I am so frustrated!! I have been on a dairy-free diet for a few months and I see NO difference. I don't get it? I have been eating tons of fruits/veggies, drinking green smoothies, taking fish oil pills, avoiding refined sugars/processed junk, etc. Yet I continue to break out.

 

I'm on the verge of giving up. I miss eating the way I used to. My stomach is always hurting and I've been having problems with bowel movements. TMI i know but i hate this!!!

 

Do you guys think diet might not be the culprit of my acne? When I was in high-school I ate shitloads of dairy/sugar yet I didn't get a single break out, but I was using prescription topicals to control my acne so IDK. I am considering taking a blood test to see if my hormones are off balance. If so, I want to go on Spiro



After going on this diet, my acne seemed to clear up a little, but then it went back to the way it used to be.

 

I am wondering if my hormones alone are the cause of my acne?


I Think My Sodium Sulfacetamide/sulfur Wash (Prascion) Is Breaking Me Out?!

17 February 2012 - 02:26 PM

Ever since I started using it I have been breaking out in large whiteheads.. I wash my face with it once a day (every morning) and then apply Dan's BP and Lumiplexion Moisturizer Gel..at night time i wash my face with just water then apply tretinoin cream 0.1%. I know it is the wash that is contributing to my break outs.  My face is so irritated and flaky :/

Can you please tell me if you see any comedogenic ingredients (in the sulfur wash)??

sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, disodium oleamido MEA sulfosuccinate, sodium cocoyl isethionate, cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate and PEG 100 stearate, stearyl alcohol, magnesium aluminum silicate, xanthan gum, methylparaben, disodium EDTA, butylated hydroxytoluene, sodium thiosulfate, fragrance, propylparaben, and purified water.


Should I give it up and switch to a Salicylic Acid wash?

I Think My New Body Acne Regimen Is Working :)

25 January 2012 - 12:09 PM

I break out on my chest, upper arms, and back. I've tried everything like the Neutrogena Grapefruit Body Scrub, Proactiv renewing cleanser, etc. but they all turned out to be a waste of money and did nothing for my body acne.

I bought a huge bottle of Head & Shoulders Classic Clean Shampoo (1 L) at Target and I've been using it for a week..I have to say it's working wonders! The red marks on my chest and back seem to be fading too. I also use 100% Tea Tree Oil at night time..very smelly but definitely worth it :)
