are there other problems you are dealing with besides acne?

Recommended Posts

well not only have I suffered from acne for almost 8 years now(almost clear now with dans regimen) I am also dealing with men hair loss. I went to the DERM yesterday and she told me straight up that i'm going BALD.. I still haven't lost all my hair yet(I have a lot still). but I keep losing hair each day. Well my derm gave me some rogaine spray, but I have a feeling that is just going to delay the hair loss and i'll end up being bald anyways like my father... but tbh, I rather be bald than have acne because I know I will look sexy with or without hair as long as I'm acne free :) .. anyone else dealing with other problems besides acne?

Hey, i suppose baldness isn't so bad. I personally aside from acne, am dealing with a case of ingrown hair. I still have no idea how come they occur, as i am not triggering it in any way. I very rarely weared a second pair of tight pants (well, winter, when it's cold. Yoiu get it) So... that and i'm also abit of unlucky with my skin genetically. Seing as my acne's origins are hormonal AND genetic, i ALSO have a mild case of Keratosis Pilaris (more then sure that it's my grandpa's genetics). It's not so noticable yet, but you can clearly feel it with the touch of a hand.

That's my story...

Yeah, i have wierd genetics which result in my having canine teeth where my second incisors are supposed to be and I have no adult second incisors so I had to have a fakey crown put in at 21... sexeh!

I get ingrowns really really easily, I think its connected to the skin type which gets acne to be honest though. loads of skin cells or something blocking whatever pores become inflamed (so waxing... bad plan for me)

I also have IBS and for a girl I have thin hair which is the only thing really stopping me from trying accutane as I don't want to be bald.

Dispite all this I am regrded as attractive.... which I am grateful for...

Tons!

Cold sores, eczema, allergies, anemia, asthma, easily sunburned skin and worrying birthmarks. My dentist always complains to me about my teeth just like my hairdresser complains about my hair. I pay myself sick for all the pills and products I need.

For what it's worth, I don't find really skinny guys unattractive at all. In fact I love scrawny small guys. With wide shoulders. ^_^ lol

I have IBS as well I think. It may have been a result of accutane. It's IBS or inflamed intestines.

ps gaining weight seems more fun than losing it. I am confounded by people who try to gain body mass. Though i've been a chub chub since I was a toddler.

physically- i have hypothyroidism, and this past year i had trigeminal neuralgia (which has been described as the most painful experience a human can endure, even more painful than childbirth), luckily that went away with a prescription... but that usually doesnt happen, so i really am lucky...

now in my personal life... theres been way to many terrible things i have had to deal with to even begin to talk about it.. all these things always make my head feel so crowded

Absolutely. My mom has stage IV pancreatic cancer. Acne sucks, but this is truly painful.

I'm so sorry! That is truly painful. :comfort: I sure wish there was something I could say to help make it better but I know there isn't. Please stay strong, that's all I can say. You're in my best wishes.

Farout dude thats thin. Im 5'6 and around 135lbs and i still look thin.

Dude by any chance would your weight loss have co-incided with you roaming the holistic section, where they tell you to cut out so much fkn food from your diet that you just go all bone?

Nah bro, I have gone on a few of those diets there but they never last long. I've always been super skinny even though I eat like an obese person :/

I have no social life. Or life in general. The town I live in sucks ass because it's hot as hell all summer long and there's nothing to do. My parents hate each other and I can't stand to be around them. Every member of my family is somewhat crazy. I spend all my time in my own house, by myself with my dog because both my parents have jobs with different shifts. I'm too tall to go shopping for clothes like a normal girl does, since no store carries size 11+ womens shoes. I spend all my money on acne systems because our family is constantly not having enough money to pay bills, so I give all the money I can to buy everything. I don't have any actual friends.
