Can It Heal Naturally?

24 July 2015 - 04:34 PM


I am attaching a picture of a recent small cystic breakout I just had. I am not sure if it was due to hormones, stress, and not eating well. But I just got off Accutane over 6 months ago and I really don't want to go through that again. I am not one for medicine topical or oral..at this point ive been doing good naturally. If I let this be do you think it can heal on its own or I should try to use something,

Go To Derm Or Ride It Out?

23 July 2015 - 02:36 PM

So about six days ago I used a clay mask that left me with two cysts on my cheek. im really upset over it as I haven't had this kind of breakout in over 8 months. my skin has been great. its been six days both cysts r going down but I have two big red marks and they r still bump like. im wondering to go to the derm and inject them...and worried I could possibly start breaking out again tho I think the mask n bad eating contributed to this. what would u recommend?

Finding Ways To Cope Before I Go Insain

21 July 2015 - 10:53 AM

Most times I wonder if when I break out if I could cope with the situation better maybe I could heal faster or not make it worse. Medicines, chemicals seem to not help my skin much and its been about 8 months since I recovered from a terrible outbreak that had me trapped in my house for months and having a breakdown. Now im breaking out a little again. one big cyst on my cheek...and ive cancelled big plans. am I crazy? why do I have to deal with this and since I have to deal with it...there must be a better way in coping....instead of driving myself crazy isolating myself n having my friends n family thinking im a nut. a part of me feels if I master this maybe it will then go away for good. any advice
