What is your opinion?

Did one or both of your parents have acne?

Do you hear stories about how they once suffered with acne?

Or is it the complete opposite, and they are baffled at the condition of your skin?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both my parents had their occasional breakouts, but from what I hear, neither of them had it the way I suffer from it. I have looked at pics of them when they were my age, and nothing!

I try my hardest to figure out why i'm breaking out, and how I can stop it. I try to take care of myself the best way I can, but nothing seems to be working.

And this does not seem to be something I inherited from my parents.

How about you???

Both of my parents had clear skin, no acne. My acne got worse after I took depo provera...but I had started to get it mildly when I was about...19 or 20 doubt.gif I'm better now that I'm on the pill...

I'm not sure if it's a genetic thing...I don't think so, though.

Its the same thing with my family. And it sux. Why us???? What makes it hard too, is because my parents didn't have a similar problem to me, so they can't relate. And I really don't think that they can understand the daily pain I go through. It will be sooo different when I have children. If any of them have a problem, i'm going to be there to help them beat it. I think it would break my heart a much as it would my kids if they have a problem. Just because I know that pain.

Yeah, my parents have been helpful when I said I wanted to get help and stuff, but they don't understand how crushing it is....they always say, it's not that bad and there could be worse things happening to you....you can't even notice the scars, and it's on the inside taht counts (I'm serious man, that's what my mom always says)...i just wish i didn't have to think about acne every fucking god damn day....

sorry, I'm just really depressed about my skin right now. I have good days and then bad days where I just look at my face and I feel so crushed...I wish I just got bloody pimples and not the scars that they leave. Scars are my biggest problem. cry.gifcry.gif

Scars are the shit. I tend to scar on the sides of my face the most. I'm testing out the glycolic acid....its been a week now, and it seems to be slowly helping. Apparently AHA's are suppose to be good for that sort of thing.

It sucks how a stupid skin problem can bing u so far down, and can ruin your entire day, even life.

So sick of trying to cover it up every day, its just a huge pain in the ass.

Well when it comes to sunlight, my concern is the bumps showing. Don't worry about the scars hun. Just stick on a mini skirt and a low cut top and no one will notice. lol No, I don't really recommend that....especially if your living in a cold climate like myself. haha

Even if u lack confidence about yourself, or at least in your skin.....just pretend like its your least worry. Thats what I try to do. Walk with my head up, and act like life is peachy king! (o:

Neither of my parents had acne, occasionally a pimple here and there but nothing as bad as mine. Although I do have a cousin that had even worse acne then I do eusa_think.gif
