Tired Of This Feeling



I guess I should begin by saying that ever since the 6th grade I started breaking out. Nothing big just little bumps on my forehead then, 7th grade changed those little bumps to big red bumps all over my forehead. Not a spot on my forehead was clear it was gross. Eventually in 8th grade it was clearing up and then High school came and my acne started developing it still wasn't so bad I started breaking out on my cheeks a little and each year High school progresses so did my acne. I'm an upcoming senior and now my checks are filled with red bumpy pimples and my forehead has a couple too as well as my chin. I never knew how hard it was to live with acne till this summer. I have not done much because I am to embarrassed to show my face cuz it's awful. My siblings have been noticing it getting worse and it sucks having to hear them say it. All I do is lay on my bed and wait till the day passes and pray every night that it gets better. Like everyone who suffers from acne I get insecure and hate looking in the mirror. Literally all my friends skin is clear so it's so embarrassing to be the ugly one.. I just need people to relate to. To know in not alone in this because that's all I've been feeling lately..

see a dermatologist. Get health insurance if you have none. Try to get it from work, parents or public healthcare which is free or low-cost if you are currently working or a student. Then get started on an antibiotic that is closely tailored to what your acne does on your face. I got clear with two antibiotics, amoxicillin and cephalexin. Also, a retinoid will help keep your pores clear of sebum, dead skin cells and plain ole dirt. An example of a close retin-a, differin gel (adapelene), Ziana or epi-duo. Generic retin-A is the easiest to obtain because it comes generic as tretinoin. If you use an antibacterial soap like cetaphil antibacterial bar soap, you will kill more of the bacteria causing your breakouts on the surface. The antibiotics will help keep your blood clear of the same bacteria. It's called P. Acnes and it causes acne.
