How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Recommended Posts

At the end of day one of a three day festival. I'm sat in my tent having just washed with water and used cleansing wipes. Guess that's my regimen for the next few days. No active acne which is a bonus. Think it's still fine after day one, hard to tell in the dark using a torch and a small mirror! :lol:

To the person who said "I want to sue life" earlier in this thread, you couldn't be thinking more similarly to me.

Had this clump of cystic acne pop up on my chin about three weeks ago and it still isn't leaving me alone..resorting to hydrogen peroxide to kill the little shits, I just couldn't stand the feeling I ahd when I woke up at my boyfriend's house and tried to hide my face from him :cry:

Other than that, I guess I feel okay...PIH always gettin' me down, but I think that's the same for pretty much everybody here. Just gotta keep on ging I guess? :wacko:

Honestly, why don't they just hurry up and come up with some miracle cure for us all? I swear I'd give them everything I own, just to get rid of this awful stuff.

I stopped using any acne products for a few days since I was swtching from using BP/Salylic Acid to a regimen with Sulfacetamide and Retin A. After 1 day of trying the sulfacetamide lotion 10% my chin has like 12 whiteheads on it. It looks so hideous. I am just starting out though, so hope it improves soon.

Eh...I broke out on Saturday...I think it's the dreaded 2-3 weeks into the regimen breakout. I picked way too much this weekend as well...feeling pretty crappy about that. Trying not to touch my face today but it ITCHES LIKE CRAZY!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrr!

Happy almost birthday!

Is anyone else like this? ... I seem to break out only on the left side of my face now, my right side is pretty clear. I thought maybe it's just recently but looking at my scars, I have more on the left. How weird!? -- and annoying.

Pretty good today actually. I had a hideous breakout last week all over neck, neck, mouth, left cheek, and top of forehead that is finally looking better. Now they're almost all just little red marks which look better than pimples sticking out of me everywhere.

I plan on starting Dan's regimen this week if it arrives. Hopefully I don't get one of these breakouts again when I start it as it just makes me want to hide from everyone.

Terrible. And it's my birthday tomorrow. :(

Birthday ended up being better than I thought it'd be. I realize when I get out and go do things I feel a lot better. Had a few drinks and a good time overall. :)

Pre-period breakouts are some of the worst, I think i'm gettin that now. ugh it's awful.

That's what I'm going through, and then some other, different, new kind of breakout for me. My goodness, will it never, ever end?

Yaz, you suck!

Ah I was on Yaz too but the estrogen in them would give me migraines so I went off of that and onto a progesterone only pill, worst thing ever! My acne was cleared up on Yaz and shortly going off it flared up I now have cysts and spots all over my chin and jaw :(

Which side do you sleep on/ what side do you hold your phone up to when you talk? That could be part of the problem, try disinfecting your phone?

Hm.. I don't use the phone much. When I sleep, I sleep on my stomach so I may be sleeping on some side more. Interesting.

On another note, I looked at some photos from roughly a year ago and my face was sooo broken out, I had no idea. So many bumps and redness - I mean in the moment I did know, but now I guess I forgot - I'm glad it has calmed down. Makes me feel better about my slight breakout.

Had a really nasty huge pimple right on the border of the top part of my lip. Looks like it shrank a bit today at least. Hurt like hell yesterday. It had like the white top on it, but it hurt so much I didn't dare try to pop it even though it looked bad.

I feel a bit stressed about a break out on my right cheek as because my skin is starting to clear up, it seems really awful! I know that the regimen is starting to work for me though and it has gotten better overall, so I'm trying to keep stress levels to a minimum. (: Keep smiling & ignoring it is working so far.
