In Topic: Are You Hesitant On Getting A Cortisone Shot?

Agreeed! That stuff is amazing. My dermatologist gives me about 5 or 6 everytime I go in.

 

I swear, some cysts just will NOT leave without them…. Thank god for cortisone shots. LOL.


In Topic: What Type Of Spot Is This On My Chin? (Pics)

That's definitely cystic acne. Take ibuprofen, ice it and whatever you do, don't pick. If you're allergic to BP, i recommend using a sulfur mask to help calm down the spots.

Week 22

 

I am not a happy camper. I started using jojoba oil on my skin 2 weeks ago and my skin has broken out once again, right before I go away on vacation. I fucking hate acne, it truly rules my life and makes me so miserable and angry. I now have a huge cyst on my forehead, one on my chin, and 3 small zits, with lots of hyperpigmentation. Just wonderful! One step forward, 10 steps back. My skin was doing SO well before this fucking jojoba oil. If anyone is reading this, I HIGHLY recommend NOT using jojoba oil mixed with your moisturizer, or at least try using a very very small amount for a few days to see how your skin reacts. It took 2 weeks for my skin to react and break out like this. Let's hope my skin can calm down a little bit before my trip, or I will be very very upset….


In Topic: Oxymoron: Swollen Crater?

The exact same thing happened to me about a month and a half ago. Sadly, the spot hasn't gotten any better. I tried not touching it as it was healing, it would scab over and become a raised dry red spot, but acne started to form around it and it got very itchy… I scratched it and it came off again, leaving a swollen hole once again. UGH!!!! So irritating….

Rub jojoba oil every night, and mix it with your moisturizer after cleansing.
