Gosh, I'm so sorry you're going through this. Have you ever had the contents of the breakouts cultured before? Maybe that could offer some insight? I've had outbreaks before on my legs and they always turned out to be fungal. In my case, though, topical anti-fungals worked quite well.

For some reason I can't quote?

 

brenmc, aren't most anti-androgens on the market today steroidal? The only one I can think of that is not is flutamide, and that is even more risky because it can cause liver damage.

I already messed up and picked a whitehead that resulted from my picking yesterday. The hardest time to not pick is right after you've picked (at least for me). When I pick at blackheads they usually turn into inflamed bumps the next day which are the hardest for me not to pick.

I'm glad to see so many people are also trying to stop picking! I wound up in the hospital a few nights ago, and that's the reason for my lack of updates. I almost went back last night because of some pain I was having. Thankfully, I didn't have to, but when I was in pain last night I picked at my face :( It doesn't look that bad, but I am so mad at myself because I went so long only picking at my nose a little! Oh well. I'll be starting again with you guys. Today is day 1.

I haven't posted in a little while. I'm still doing quite good at not picking. After my nose picking session I did pick at my nose a few more times including today. I squeezed a blackhead on the side of my nose pretty hard and I think it might form some sort of scab. Other than that I've been good at not picking. The rest of my face looks great. I've been using TCA peels and they've really helped keep my pores clean. I don't want to pick at my nose anymore so that's why I'm updating this log (to give me incentive). So here we go again, day 1!
