#3482747 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Posted by Melloman on 30 May 2015 - 01:45 PM


What if people get rid of you and you have no support system in addition to having shitty skin?

Fuck em, and find people you're comfortable with.  This was directed mainly towards all the people who shielded themselves from society and cut off their own relationships.  Sorry if that happened to you.



I have a big ugly cyst I got from eating pie crust earlier this week, and I slept wrong, so now my left eye bag is all puffed up and it looks like I got punched in the face.  What's worse is my cyst is on my left temple, right next to my messed up eye bag.  Now I just look hideous, and I have to miss something I was looking forward to.

But I'm happy today!  :)  It's been a good peaceful morning.

I just wanted to say, Cherish what you have right now.

I've noticed a lot of newcomers sharing their stories that when they first got cystic acne, they shielded themselves from their friends and loife because of the shame.  I can completely understand that.  When I first got cystic acne, I was moving every year, but I had already made a lot of friends that year.  It was one of the best years of my life, and everyone accepted me despite my hideous appearance.  It was my world.  They were my world.  Going anywhere without them, I was awkward and ashamed and just wanted to get out of where ever I was so no one could see me.  It was one of the best years of my life, even better than it is now when my acne is nearly gone. 

I just wanted to say, please don't get rid of your friends or anyone else you guys have.  That's when the years of your life start flying out of the window.  Don't wait for your acne to disappear because there's no guarantee it will.  I didn't know where else to put fhis, but this is how I felt.

should have posted this earlier, but since my last post, there's been some things.  I haven't been very consistent with the tea tree oil and witch hazel, but I'm back on it now. 

Its been ups and downs, but overall it appears to be much better.  There's been some days where it's looked big and awful, but right now it looks good.  I think its improving.  It usually looks its smallest before bed, so I'll check it in the morning and let ya'll know... 

If I look close, the outer layer looks almost scabby.  Like it's drying out or something.  Like one day it may come off.

#3480973 How Much Acne Changed Your Confidence?

Posted by Melloman on 13 May 2015 - 11:43 PM

Acne is evil and I told my husband if I had a genie my first wish would be that pimples did not exist.

That's really cool and awesome of you.  I would usually wish that I was healed and my acne was gone for ever, but I rarely think to wish acne gone in general.  Maybe it's because of what it does for a lot of people.  Causes them to be more understanding and loving.  And if we all make it through...

I've developed a huge social anxiety.  I have complete spazz outs even with communicating with people over the internet.   I literally scream and bite myself.  I think it's a great idea to have get togethers.

#3480676 Dermatologist Made Me Feel Awful About Myself.

Posted by Melloman on 11 May 2015 - 03:53 PM

I've brought this up on numerous occassions on here.  There's a lot of horror stories like derms and doctors saying things like:
"You all set, pizza face?"
"Don't worry, I'll make you pretty again."

Your dermatologist doesn't seem to care.  That's a bad sign.  He may end up giving you medication that will mess you up worse.  I know mine did, and the medication would just make my acne and body worse.  I would reccomend no dermatologists at all.  They're all trained to give you FDA approved medicines.  They always do trial and fails, and some do it to squeeze more money from you.  Not all derms are bad like that, though.  But yours clearly doesn't care enough so you should switch or stop going to derms altogether.

I avoided all medications and ignored all the doctors' advice, and started healing naturally.  Once I found the issues my body was having (leaky gut), I did what I could to heal my gut, and my acne vanishes! 

#3480279 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Posted by Melloman on 08 May 2015 - 03:53 AM

What if Accutane is the last solution for treatment resistant acne?

That's exactly what it is...and should be.

Are you asking a hypothetical? Let's see there are two solutions that come to mind. A. You take the medication. B. You accept nature and your genetic makeup.

The choice is yours Neo. Yellow Pill or No Pill.  Good Luck.

I disagree.  "Treatments" are treatments.  Not cures.  If you want to be cured, you must heal.  If you want to heal, you must figure out what's wrong with your body.  Acne isn't just some random disease (as it's now classified).  It's a rash indicating something is wrong.

#3479582 New Cheese Good For Acne From Heidi Ho?

Posted by Melloman on 01 May 2015 - 07:00 AM

Every Friday where I live there are farmer's markets in the summer and fall... that's the only time and place I would buy my cheese at, and if I was really craving it then it would be goats cheese in the grocery stores. These moments, however, are few and far in between, and I'm actually not a big cheese craving kind of person. Never heard of that brand before but let us know what it's like!

I've never been to one, but I've recently been made aware of two near me.  They're open the same seasons so I'll probably try some cheese and eggs and see what else they're selling this year.

#3479439 People Get Disgusted When I'm Around.

And the second thing is what Melloman mentioned: I just haven't found a group or person to connect with. I'm still searching for this acceptance, and I think I always will search for it until it's found. 

You know, I just realized that there are a lot of orginizations low on membership.  Try to find some in your area that need help.  Join all of them and see which is the most fun and loving.  They will accept you because they need help regardless, and in the process you may slowly grow relationships with them.

Here are some orginizations that are probably very active based on Today's issues in the U.S.
Police Brutality Orginizations (black lives matter not reccomended)
Social Worker
Gang interventionist

These three areas can be the most active.  The second are highest recommended, because not all police brutality orginizations are that good..  Gang interventionist is probably best as there really isn't any required education for that.

I honestly don't know too many that are too active.  just search for ones in your state.  Black lives matter probably isn't as good, because they mostly just call everybody out to rally and then everyone goes home.  Not to say they aren't making a difference. 

#3479337 Nose Bump Scar Cures & Treatments

Posted by Melloman on 29 April 2015 - 01:40 AM

My nose bump is not painful, and soft to the touch.  It formed after a cyst was there.  It's been here for 8 months total, and 5 months without me damaging it.  There was another one last year that disappeared after 4-6 months on its own. 

I looked up pictures of nose keloids.  I don't reccomend, because they're disgusting and look nothing like ours.  So I guess we should go our own route on this.  If any of you see specialists, please post what they said it was.  I've heard of doctors coming up with different answers, so it probably isn't documented..


So here's some solutions that I've found:

Home Remedies
Rubbing Alcohol (CAUTION)
Tea Tree Oil
Witch Hazel

Things Doc can do
Various laser treatments

"Homemade" methods (Caution):
Burning with sun and magnifying glass
Burning with lighter and copper wire

Found some additional info here:  www.topix.com/forum/med/dermatology/TTBJJI77TIU3JDRIF/p4

make sure to copy the entire URL, guys.  If you don't copy paste it, then it won't take you directly to the page with the nose bump solutions.

She used aspirin with water.  I don't trust the industry, but hey, use at your own risk.

#3478831 Milk Free Diet Cleared My Cystic Acne, And....

Posted by Melloman on 24 April 2015 - 01:10 AM

! And no problem about the recipes! I'm trying my best to gather recipes from other places as well, so it's taking longer than I thought... I'm think of starting a blog on blog post or Instagram or something.


Yeah, I was actually going to start a topic on all the recipes I came up with.  They're really good.  I was going to include pictures of the finished product and instruction and all that.  Since adding more veggies and a bit of fruit, my acne cleared drastically.  I think my gut has been healing for the past 8 months, but the wheat kept tearing holes which didn't let me see the results.  Before I followed your advice and got rid of wheat, I broke out almost immediately from Blueberries.  I ate blueberries after kicking wheat, and there was little to no reaction!  Of course I still breakout if I eat a lot lf bad food, but at least now I don't have to worry about cysts so much.


Tomatoes must be really bad to give you acne that easily.  I know if I eat a single donut from the store, I'll get a huge cyst that lasts for a month and a half, but I can eat an entire pound cake from the same store and get little to no acne.   I guess it's just one of those things.

#3478669 Will Masturbating After Accutane Make My Acne Come Back?

Posted by Melloman on 22 April 2015 - 04:28 PM

I think not.  If accutane is supposed to cure acne, I'm sure they wouldn't let something like masturbation foil their drug.  Even if you did notice a correlation between masturbation and your acne, it shouldn't matter as accutane is supposed to take care of that.


However, accutane is said to cause sexual dysfunction along with a lot of other issues of varying levels.  I personally would reccomend staying away from drugs in general.  They have awful side affects and don't usually solve the problem.  But don't worry.  I used to think masturbation caused my acne, too.  Then I realized I had leaky gut, which drugs were only making worse. 


Not to say masturbation doesn't cause anyone's acne.  Because it probably does cause some people's, inderectly or directly.  If so, it's very rare.  Masturbation causes a huge reaction which involves getting rid of a lot of vital nutrients.  The loss of these nutrients, or anything else that happens to the body in the process of masturbation amd/or ejaculation, may hinder the body's ability to fend off toxins which lead to acne.

Posted by Melloman on 10 April 2015 - 12:22 AM

Wow.  Yeah,  it took the girl on a video of the youtube channel you sent me, 3 months to heal as well.  And she didn't even have acne.  That's good.  It sucks that you still can't tolerate those foods yet.  It's been a year and a half, huh?  That's disappointing that the wasn't enough time to fully heal.  Hopefully in a couple more years, you'll be more tolerant.  So your diet is vegan, but you're a vegetarian?  I've noticed sleep is a good healer as well.  I looked so much better yesterday morning!  Thanks for posting your diet on my thread.  The last couple of days help put me right back on track thanks to those comments.  For some reason, no one ever goes into detail on their diet, ever online

#3477382 3 Foods Journey

Thanks, TreatAcne. You caught me at the perfect time.
I had just looked in the mirror and saw another breakout. I got super fustrated and started freaking out.  I was really upset.  I wanted to completely remove grains from my diet. I've been so scared to add in anymore foods, but I realize I should say screw it and at least breakout on something that doesn't break my gut down. Since I'm removing grains, I'll probably try some of your meal ideas. I'll exclude veggies that I think gave me cysts, and just use the mild ones. I mean, my previous trials weren't even that accurate anyway.

I know I'm sensitive to most gut healing foods, but I think I'm just going to start eating them anyway. Hopefully the sensitivities will go away overtime. Fuck suffering. I also have a dietritionist I'm gonna talk to this week. A nice lady gave me her number. Turns out, you can call a grocery store and ask if their dietritionist is there, and ask to speak to them and they might give you free advice and even show you foods around the store!

So there is a thread on here about leaky gut Syndrom.  It lists all the foods and supplements that are best for it.  The only problem is it's all high in histamine, so I can't really eat any of that! 

Foods to avoid for healing leaky gut:





Unhealthy Oils (corn, vegetable, soybean, cottonseed)

Alcohol and Caffeine

Excessive carbohydrate consumption

Anyone with Autoimmune disease should limit or omit:


Nuts and Seeds

Egg Whites  (yes, that's the white part of the egg)
