yeah i know exactly how you feel, same happened to me before i got accutane....alot of ppl dont realize that it's actually much WORSE going from clear to bad. wen your clear, you fear that you'll get another pimple, and pray everyday not to go back to what you used to be....it's almost like you finally passed the mountain, but after you pass it, someone just keeps pulling you back and you dont want to go back

Damn that really sux man... but your acne cant be as bad as before you went on the tane... so maybe you need to start doign some sort of upkeep regimen like dans regimen or something

That really suchs and I'm so sorry for you...

Ask your derm an appointement as soon as you can, derms usually have something to stop the swelling of the cysts and to make the redness go down...

Hope it helps...

ill give u my honest opinion and that is to go on a 2nd course of accutane. maybe this time u will be clearer for longer. i think if its 14 cysts forming then u should try another course. and not to mess around with your face with all the lotions and chemicals. how old are u by the way? it is probably just hormones that will pass eventually.

Such a similar thing happenned to me, you're post actually made me cry too because i feel for you so much...Firstly, do NOT whatever you do ,start blowing this girl off because you feel ashamed of how you look. She will still love you if your personality and love of life remains the same. Trust me, she will-if you obsess over the fact that she is gonna end it with you because of your face, she will pick up that you are not happy and wonder if it's her fault.

The worse thing you can do when your skin gets bad is make your personality appear bad as well by going all unconfident and paranoid of what other people are thinking. She won't stop loving you because of you're skin, the chances are she will won't to stay with you and help you through it. Think how you would feel if she suddenly got awful acne, you wouldn't start not liking her would you? You'd probably want to love her and be there for her even more.

You are 18 and you're a guy so you are now at the peak of your likelyhood to get acne-but in a few years it will naturally start to clear up without you even doing anything. I dunno about whether you should go on accutane coz i've never been on it but maybe you should? It helped you so much.

This summer has been great for you because YOU made it great. Sure having bad skin will make you feel shitty again but just remeber that the you are the same person as you were in the summer. The girl fell for you because of you're personality not just coz of your skin- whatever you do just keep your confidence and keep positive. eusa_angel.gif

PS:How come you're not on Dans regimen though?

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I'm having the worse breakout of my life, and have felt like just sitting down and crying for about a week now. I can't take it anymore

are you guys going out? because i know if i started dating a guy and then he started breaking out, i dont think id break up with him for that! its something that i guess you could call a temporary state, if you know what i mean> yeah i guess thats not the best way to put it but what im really trying to say is that it would be stupid to break up with someone over their acne!

Hey, in the exact same boat. Skin was good, having first good summer years and things going great with a girl. Grew a bit of a beard during exams, then went to visit my derm so shaved it off, and bang I broke out so bad and got so depressed but kept things going as normal and grew another small beard which I stupidly shaved again and broke out real bad so that I wasn't even able to shave so grew a huge beard and completely forgot about acne and girl ( she was away) but it began to itch like shit and I could feel spots underneath and my skin was flaking and getting stuck in beard, so shaved it and couldn't believe the amount of spots that had appeared, the worse its ever being. So now really depressed, avoiding everyone including girl (whose back) and trying damage limitation operation on my face which seems to be improving since I shaved this time, fingers crossed, just lots of red marks which are pissing me off.
