In Topic: Is Marvelon (Contraceptive Pill) Good For Acne?

I was on marvelon for years and it didn't help my acne, but it didn't make it worse either.

Hey, I know how annoying it is to almost always be dealing with some sort of a break out.  I break out in that same area but with cysts and nodules.  You should be happy, though, that the rest of your skin is in such great condition!

 

I haven't used the regimen but from what I've read from other posts, you have to stick it out for longer than a couple weeks to see results.... just like with a lot of other treatments.  Don't expect everything to clear up immediately or you'll be disappointed every single day.  I know make up sometimes looks really bad over break outs but my suggestion is to just put it on anyway (as long as it doesn't break you out worse).  I find that I don't obsess over my skin or touch it nearly as much if I put make up on.


In Topic: Taking An Antibiotic For Two Weeks?

Two weeks seems like a short amount of time but it's possible it'll help clear you up.  Of course, whatever caused you to break out in the first place might cause you to break out again after the course of antibiotics.


In Topic: Getting A New Type Of Scar All Of A Sudden?

You might just be getting to an age where you are beginning to scar, unfortunately.  Or it could be because you keep getting cysts in that same area and it's doing damage to the skin, making it prone to scarring.  Those small indentations might improve over time if you can give that area time to heal and do your best to prevent future break outs.

Warm compresses work quite well for me.  I also do the aspirin thing as mentioned above.

 

Usually big, inflamed spots like that will last at least a week and sometimes a lot longer.  The fact that it has been there three days isn't anything to worry about in itself.
