I have about 3 of them on my face right now. 2 at the jawline one on my cheeks and yes thats how big each of them are on my face.
I see people talk about cystic acne and how you can't really see the head... but isn't this cystic acne? I hear ppl talk about how they have that nasty cystic acne thats under the skin. Is this under or not under the skin? Assuming there is no whitehead on the picture, would this be under or not?
Because when i think cystic acne/pimple, this is what i imagine ppl mean. But then i hear ppl say its under the skin and doesn't form a head and you can't pop it. So does this picture have a head? Can this be popped? If it doesn't have a whitehead here... does that mean no? I'm very confused at the type of cystic acne there is.
Can someone post a picture of cystic acne where the pimple doesn't have a head and thus can't be popped? I'm really confused.
Anyone here used this before? I bought it on amazon because some ppl mentioned it works on acne pimples and cystic pimples. But i also read it caused huge problems for a few ppl though some others say they dont know if its true or false. I know these are for boils and for moles and other related stuff. I heard ppl use it for insect bites.
Is this safe to try? Have a few huge cystic pimples thats red and inflamed around my jawline area. If it is used for insect bites that are big, would it be fine for cystic pimples that are huge, painful and inflamed?
I'm 27 and have bad acne now. I think i started getting acne when I was 15. At that time, it never bothered me much. I honestly think the reason for this was b/c back then i was a nerd in school. I wore glasses and had the nerdy look and always cared about grades in school. I remembered when i went to a dermatologist at the time, they just give me some cream to put it on my face. I remembered the only reason I went to the dermatologist was b/c those pimples were hurting my face and it was painful. I honestly didn't think about my looks much. I was the kid who did very good in school then come home and then watch tv and on computer etc. There were many times where i wouldn't even put the cream on my face b/c i was lazy. I remembered once the pimples wasn't painful anymore, but it was still there, I didn't care at all. I didn't care about my looks or image. I think my acne was bad at that time, I don't remember fully but it was definitely moderate. Its been a while since i was in high school but i honestly cannot remember me worrying about acne. I ate horribly as a kid ate junkfood everyday etc. I remembered i had pimples but i never had a care in the world. Only when it was painful then it bothered me but i never thought about it.
This all changed when i started college. At around that time, i had a big change. I no longer wore glasses anymore and i changed my whole look. I went from looking like a nerd kid with glasses to someone with a complete makeover. I remembered i would then start looking at my face so much b/c i couldn't believe how i looked at that time. I then wondered, why was i such a nerd and wear glasses and had the worst nerd hair style ever. Then when i started college, my face started to break out a lot. I remembered it was just 1 month into my first semester all the way back in 2004 when my face was breaking out everywhere. I had cystic area in many of my face. It was at that time i got very self conscious. Brought proactive at the time and i didn't work.
My acne then cleared a few years later and now it has came back again. I had actually visited this site a ton back from 2005 to 2009 when my acne was at its very worst before it got better. I had thought finally i didn't have to visit this site anymore. Then now my acne has erupted back again.
Anyways, i see so many ppl upset about acne and how it affects them emotionally. And many of these are o are like as young as 12. Of course there are many young people in high school and college who acne affects them so much.
I'm curious is there anyone here who had bad acne when they were younger and didn't care about it until later on? Such as you had bad acne at 16 but never cared about it until you started college? I was never self conscious of my face or even cared until i was 18.
The thing is if i had that same type of acne at 18 when i was 15, i honestly dont think i would have cared at all. I would say my acne when i was 15 was moderate but when i was 18, it was moderate and a bit close to severe so not severe.
