I don't know what else to do. I figured I would come here to vent because I don't have anyone else I can talk to. I have low self esteem as it is, but these pimples are ruining my life and I don't know what to do. My skin has been mildly clear for the past three days or so, until yesterday when I discovered a huge, red cyst like pimple right on the tip of my nose. Naturally I freaked out and started applying my clearasil pimple blocker pen to it right away, but it just kept getting bigger and redder. My boyfriend was coming over that night too, to sleep over and we were going to go to the beach the next day. As soon as he arrived at my apartment, I didn't even want him looking at me. We went right to bed because at least in the dark, he wouldn't be able to see, but we ended up fighting because I started crying and he just doesnt understand. He tells me Im beautiful and to ignore the acne, but its not that easy for me. We ended up not going to the beach (thank god because I couldnt go out without makeup on) and we went to the zoo instead, but I had a terrible time because even with makeup on, you could tell this huge monster was sitting on the edge of my nose. I felt so self concious the whole time and I felt like everyone was staring at me. I couldnt even kiss my bf and that of course led to more fighting.

I woke up this morning, and it hadn't gotten any better. Still huge and red. I actually called out of work complaining of a migraine because theres no way I can go to work and have customers standing in front of me all day looking at my nose. I know I wont be able to call out tomorrow though and I dont know what to do. I feel like I am going to have an anxiety attack because I look SO bad. I just want to sit in my apartment for the next week all by myself until it goes away. Even with makeup on, you can still see it, and it looks very uneven and cakey. Im supposed to go to the casino this weekend with a friend, too, but I am already coming up with excuses to not have to go, even though I really want to, I just cant stand the thought of being out in public. I know hiding away forever isnt going to help anything, but at least I wont have people staring and feeling so embarrassed. Ive just been sitting here all day crying, I dont know what to do :(

You can vent all you want here cause we're all in this together (sound gay i know)

Nose acne sucks balls and it's very noticeable. I'm a guy and i've put makeup on it and it and atleast people don't see the redness of it.

You're having it quite good than me and possibly others. A guy that says he don't care about your acne. He sounds like a cool guy to me. And you're also working. I've been stupid and didn't get involved in any relationship and it's killing me inside. Just have a good day, do what you want inside the house.

I'm sorry :( **Huggs** Been dealing with the same sort of issues for many many years...its gotten a little better but I think my outlook is getting a little better too. My hubby tells me over and over that I'm beautiful and I have the same sort of insecurities as you do. The guys HONESTLY don't notice it like we do. We can be our own worst critic, we certainly don't need anybody else to judge us.

Hey there. I'm sorry to hear that you're going through a tough time. However, all of this fighting between you and your boyfriend can't be doing your relationship any good. I know that it's hard, but I suggest that you prioritise your job and relationship over your skin by going out and facing the world. You really don't want to be losing your job or your boyfriend over a pimple on your nose. If you're finding that acne is interfering with your life to this extent, then don't be afraid to explore options such as therapy or counselling, etc. Good luck.
