This is the weirdest comment you'll ever receive but I have 4 of those on my face all in one area!! I don't have no ice in my house but would it be weird if I got something from the freezer and wrapped it up and out it on them??
At the moment I have 3 very large cystic spots on my cheek however they don't hurt, the only thing is they have turned harder, I've been using duac for about 4 weeks now and have noticed. Major difference as my acne was MUCH WORSE but these large ones don't seem to be going and are quite hard to touch! I have no idea what that means! I feel I should still carry on using duac as so far it's helped me a lot
It's nodular and without some sort of intervention (cortisone shot, needle) it will take a VERY long time to go away.
Thanks but I'm pretty sure it's not that, where would I go to get an insigen made anyway? Just my GP?
I hate to look at myself in the mirror also and think "Ugh, you're ugly" every time I do. I've had acne since I was in the fourth grade and I wish i would've appreciated my skin more and taken better care of it when I was younger because now I seriously regret not doing so. i'mma try going on the regimen but only have a benzoyl peroxide facial WASH at the moment. It cleared up my skin two years ago quite nicely, but I stopped using it. Now I'm also trying to get rid of these unattractive dark scars on my chest, back, cheeks, and forehead.
Hey there, trust me I know exactly how you feel ,I've been suffering from acne on and off since I was 12 years old and I've headed all the nasty comments in the book right now I've got it again in a patch on my cheek yet it's so red and sore and looks very puss filed so even more hard to cover with makeup go for it! Go in the regimen and use your BP if its helped you before sometimes are body's go crazy and just breakout and need abit of treatment and it'll go back to normal
I also have a few dark spots in my chest and back but what really helped me was I would fill my bath with warm water and add a either sea salt or lemon juice to it and bathe in it for as long as I can, the sea salt is an exfoliant and will get rid if any scars however shouldn't be used everyday coz it'll dry you out ( think when u go in the ocean how lovely your skin looks after) and lemon has a natural bleaching agent with will remove the scars try it once a week
Wash my face iin the dark, hate looking in the mirror. Putting on makeup is the most depressing part of my day
Well...what have you done so far to fight acne?
Well...I've been prescribed duac today, so ill be starting to use that
I know Exactly what you mean too!!! Not wanting to go out because of people noticing acne, not wanting to put on makeup because it just seems to make spots/cysts even more noticeable, not wanting to be in anyone's company !
Longing for the day when my acne goes!
I feel we'll I go out people are staring at my acne and putting in makeup to cover it is so time consuming but girls with clear skin pack on the makeup so much it looks like they've got worse skin to be honest. I guess it's really about how confident you are inside. I need to get in my head that everyone skin is NOT perfect we all have flaws and some are just more visible then others but NONE of us are perfect get prescribed something from your GP antibiotics or gel which would help or calm it down if not keep going without a fight until you find something that you are happy with I'm sure your stunning and try to focus on the things you love about yourself your hair, eyes etc and just believe that the acne won't be e forever it'll eventually go you just need to keep fighting it calmly coz stress makes it worse from my experience
Hey Tracey!! Ahh I totally get you, I'm still waiting for my Quinodrm treatment to come and hopefully my GP will put me on mino again even though I HATE taking antibiotics I feel like they fix one things and add another problem in the long run, also I found out even if your on them for a week, it takes up to 2years for them to leave your body! Insane! To be honest I'd still take them if my GP precribes them lol.
Acne scars I know what u mean annoying! It horrid having them and plus leave a they leave a scar, typical -_-hopefully if the scar is a flat redish brown mark its a lot easier to cover with your concealer power of makeup eh
Accutane is really a big step so I'd say what your doing is right wait It out for a little while and see if eat your using now will make a difference , if noting works then I'd say go for accutane, soo many success stories on it
That's exactly what I do when I go out (when I have to) I just stare at everyone's skin! But like I said e power of makeup is unbelievable th amount of layers of foundation people have can be shocking and under all that there skin is just as bad or even worse! Stay positive and YOU and myself will get through this just one if those hills we hav to face but eventuanlly when's we reach the top of the hill it'll be worth it
I see a lot of girls where I work there acne is terrible and I mean terrible but I don't see a ounce of makeup on em yet they are happy and kind people where u just overlook it. The STUPID people that actually care and dare to make a comment in my eyes are pathetic with no heart as if they were Gods gift, we've a lot got some kind of issue.
I went out a few days ago and notices a girl STARING at me as if I was on fire, I immediately thought yep she's staring at my acne and talking to her friends about it, I felt so down and thought why did I even come out...10mins later the same girl came up to me and complemented me on my dress sense and said sorry if she freaked me out by staring! I really thought wow I'm soo scared of people staring at em and making or rube comments when really majority of people don't really care.
Your hubby must tell you everyday that your beautiful and I'm sure if he's sticking with you through it he means it 100%
Lets both try to make it a goal tommrow when u wake up instead of like me rushing to the mirror to see if any of my acne is gone, I'm gonna wake up and think I'm glad I'm alive, roof over my head, good clothes and lucky we have a face and arms and legs which unfortunately some poor people in this world don't.
SMILE AND BE HAPPY THE WORLD IS OUT THERE FOR YOU AND YOUR HUBBY TO EXPLORE
You'll get through this I know you will and Whenever u feel oh I'm ugly I can't take this no more, stop, and think I'm going through a time in my life where I'm getting treatment and this treatment will help, just gota stick it out it won't be ere forever!!
