Spring Break(Out)

So I have spring break in TWO weeks, which is going to be great with the sun on my face and back. I need some vitamin D! I take vitamin D supplements every now and then, but i want the real stuff. Anyway, the reason I am back on here is to look at my progress that I made last year with my acne, and see if I can do anything about my current situation. Face: three large cysts on chin (always the trouble spot) and multiple, around 10, spots on the rest of my face. Localized mstly on the foreh

It Has Been A While!

Well, I had a long summer in the sun and a few months back at school with no back acne at all and close to no facial acne. It was great! But of course, I'm back. Back has about 3 big spots and some small bumps on my neck. While my face has 4 or 5 small bumps and one HUGE cystic bump on my chin. My chin has always been a problem area, and now its starting up again. I don't know why my acne is awful during winter...i'm guessing becaues of the lack of vitamin D, but here I am again, with acne

A Month And A Week, I Think

ACNE UPDATE! Face: still only one very very stubborn cyst left (its going away, but it is definitely taking its sweet time). stikl keep having those stubborn little zits all over random spots on my face (around 5 or so). the little spots come and go everyday. They are small and some are even flesh colored so its not a huge deal, but its annoying. Honestly, I think its from the benzoyl peroxide . I am giong to try to stop using it except on my cystic zits starting tomorrow (I already used

About A Month

Well, I said I was going to post a picture in my gallery, but I keep forgetting...but I will soon! Quick update: face: cysts are almost completely gone. Have around 3-4 little tiny pimples that aren't too noticeable (easily covered with makeup), so I am not too worried about them. However, I do have about 10 acne scars from all of my cysts. They are slowwwwwwly going away. I mean SLOWLY. I have had acne scars before...and on my sensitive/pale face they take around 3 or so months to f

Anyway, I just bought some new makeup to try out- covergirl's tru blend mineral pressed powder and Maybelline's super stay 24 hour concealer and was thinking of going out to buy the physicians formula talc free mineral foundation My regular makeup (covergirl's aquasmoothers foundation) does not break me out a

I Can't Remember The Week (4Th, End Of 3Rd?)

Obviously, I have been sucked into finals week. However i have a BIG BIG issue that I need to ask about, which is why I am writing this entry... Well the 5th is my 21st birthday (yay me!), however, I am on bactrim still (oh no). I have looked up alcohol interactions with this drug and don't think I'll be taking the risk of drinking while on it...so I'm going to have to stop taking the bactrim before it is time to. oooppps. medical side of acne.org, don't hate me, please. I know you shoul

Mid Week 3-Ish

Its finals week- so I wanted to go ahead and post about what is going on this week a little earlier than at the end of the 3rd week mark... back- clearing (almost completely clear besides red marks and slowly fading bumps that you can't really see, but that I can feel on my back) face- cysts are clearing, SLOWLY. So slowly. The bp is helping (still only spot treating), but I'm still getting other bumps on my face (not as bad as the cysts), so it is still not 100% clear at all. Have

End Of Week 2

Well... My back is getting better. I think the picture I posted to my gallery was a little misleading on what it actually looks like (bad lighting, etc.). It isn't fully better yet. I still have some (around 5) active acne spots, but they are starting to subside. My back has been so itchy and dry lately though that I have been putting a small amount of my face lotion (neutrogena combination skin lotion) on my neck and upper shoulders. My face on the other hand is getting better and worse

Beginning Of Week 2

Well, obviously week 1 has been hell. My face is freaking out on the BP. I am only using it as a spot treatment, but my skin is SO sensitive anyway that in the places that I have been spot treating it has been either breaking out more or is SO exremely red that I have to wear makeup during the day so it doesn't look like I got punched in the face. I'm hoping that at least by the third week my acne will be subsiding and so will this redness, I can't take it much longer. I'm very impatient and I a

Just A Mid-1St Week Update...

Well, I ended up buying the 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide from CVS a few days ago. It is the Neutrogena brand "on the spot acne treatment". So, here is my regimen (I am trying to stay close to what this website recommends, without actually having to buy the products promoted on here)... - Rinse face with water in the morning - put on neutrogena moisterizer with spf 15 (I'm still on doxy and my skin is sensitive to sun, also I recommend an spf anyway so you don't have a lot of aging on your skin

Week 1-Ish

Well, I never thought that I would be posting on an acne forum...but here I am. Overview: I have had really horrible back acne for the past 3 years. I was prescribed tretinoin cream for it when it began, this always cleared it up within a month or 2. However, my current doctor decided not to prescribe me the cream and instead gave me clindamycin lotion. This didn't help (she didn't mention that I should also use BP with it...). So after a month of doing that, she put me on doxycycline. I
