I didn't have this. Honestly though have you ever looked at the the effects for paracetamol or ibuprofen? You probably wouldn't take it if you thought you would get all the side affects.

I've been there. What meds are you taking? Tell your boyfriend about how you feel. Any guy worth anything will comfort and assure you. But you need to comfort and assure yourself. There is more to you than your skin. I've just met someone and my back and buttocks have broken out. I have it on my face and neck too. It made me feel so unattractive I didn't date for 6 years. I thought to myself, what exactly am I running away from? Someone telling me I make them sick because of my skin. Would I want to be with someone who couldn't accept me? Answer is no! So don't let anyone take you at face value, your so much more. Good luck.

I remember popping my first accutane. There was no Internet back then. I just had to get on with it. Lol. Just look after yourself. Eat well drink plenty water. Avoid alcohol, rest. Give yourself nice treats. It can make you feel like you have flu. Sore bones etc but that's a known side effect. Get some good lip balm for your lips and nose, get artificial tears for your eyes if they feel dry. If anything bothers you go straight back to your doctor or pharmacist for advice. Good luck!

Ps if your in pain don't be buying pills off the Internet. Your doctor will advise you what to do. You are putting your body through a regime, take care of it.

In Topic: Two Great Products To Try

I really want to try a clay mask. All the masks I've done have been full of chemicals and crap that don't really do anything for the pores at all. 

Well I can recommend that one very much. I don't know if it has chemicals in it. I just know that anyone I recommend it to has seen a difference. It is expensive but worth it http://uk.spacenk.co...9,en_GB,pd.html Space NK has a good loyalty scheme too so if you like it and keep buying it you will eventually have enough to get a free one.

Hi Esther


I can sympathise with you, I have body acne. Its awful and I really feel for you. First of all see your doctor about trying the pill and ask them to check to see if you have polycystic ovary syndrome. Try a salicylic face wash (such as Garnier, clearasil or l'oreal your pharmacist should be able to show you if you can't find it) on your spotty areas in the shower. Don't get it near your genitalia though as it will nip. huh.png Just use it on the areas that have broken out. Drink plenty water too, 8 large glasses or 2 litres a day. Hope it helps a bit but see your doctor.


I know it probably makes you feel unattractive but remember if a guy wants to be with you he will see past your skin. I know it wouldn't bother me to date a guy with body acne. smile.png
