Meanest thing that someone has said about your acne

Recommended Posts

Guest Avian

Speaking of parental comments:

'I can honestly say, I don't even notice acne on you now'

Idiots. Get new glasses.

Wow, what a cool thread, it's been going for years!!!

Anyway, these are my worst 2 comments:

1. It looks like a volcano is about to errupt on your chin.

2. Have you got chicken pox or is it teenage spots? (I'm 23!)

The worst comments come from people trying to be 'helpful', often times, complete random strangers.

I've had people walk up to me out of the blue and say "Oh, you should try this - it'll clear your skin right up!"

And I'm just staring at them because 1) I DON'T FREAKING KNOW WHO THE HELL THEY ARE! and 2) It's just plain rude to comment on a stranger's appearence. Period. Would they suggest a handsome purse to go with my dress? Doubtfull.

Wow alot of fuckin mean ppl!!! Ive never had anyone say anything bad about my face. And although its not bad anymore it used to be and i never saw anyone say anything about it atlesast not to my face but talking behind my back might be a different story. But ya w/e it doesnt effect me because ppl are retarted. If they had acne they would know how hard it is to get rid of.

Two stoner kids outside the mall one night last year asked me if I purchased some soap...60 seconds later they were both apologizing profusely. That's the only situation that comes to mind...

Back in high school I wasn't even aware of acne, seemed like everybody had it.

Back in high school (when I started using makeup) a friend of mine must have noticed that my skin had a slightly orange tint to it. He then proceeded to ask me (in front of other people) if I was wearing makeup. I obviously protested. He then asked me to wipe the sleeve of my shirt on my cheek to show him I wasn't. I tried to lightly but it came off and I was there looking like an ass. I just can't rationalize how someone who spots something like this has to make a thing out of it. Obviously I'm wearing it due to a skin problem so just let it go.

Similar situation...I was using this oxy treatment, and it was brown colored, so it kind of covered up the acne a bit. I'm a man, and this is obviously frowned upon. So, I was sitting in a group during class in the 9th grade, and a jackass told all of them I was wearing make-up. I denied it, got flushed, felt my heart drop, and then a girl looked at me and agreed with him. She gave me a disgusted look, and I attempted to justify myself.

I wanted to die.

I don't know if it's a regimen...I'm on Doxy 200 mg and Duac, and wash with cetaphil a couple times per day. I also avoid the sun.

Well theres no excuse to be rasict up until a point where your self image is being attacked by people for no apparent reason.  When someone makes fun of your apperance they are making fun of you for something that you have no control over.  While you have no control over your ethnicity I would think that a racial joke about them would be acceptable. 2 wrongs dont make a right but hey what can you do

How are you even going to try and justify that man? LOL It's not possible. Racial slurs will just bring you way down probably below their level. Racism kills communities, ignorant kids who make fun of someone because they have pimples doesn't, your better off punching them in the face than attacking them racially.

Holy geez, what a thread. It very interseting to read all these things. People are such bastards sometimes.

An uncle of mine was once like, "hey what's going on there? Must be stress, one of my friends used a cream, I'll find out k?"

My Kid asked me "why you always have the chicken pox mommy?"

And a hairdresser told me she used a cream to get rid of some blemishes on/around her nose, I said I don't remember seeing you with acne, she's all "oh god no, I never left the house like that!"

None of the above meant any harm of course. They were trying to help I guess, but it hurts none the less.

Now clear on accutane, I only have scars to deal with, and my mom and sis and hubby, all tell me how great my skin looks. That helps, they never said fuck all when it was bad, they just listened when I cried.

"Go and wash that oil off" can't remembber who said that to me.

"Blot your oil off" another one.

"Wash your face" as if I don't

"Take care of your face" as if I don't

"What happen to your face!" Mmmmm, I don't know (as if I don't)

"You need to see a doctor" Okay, this was the only good advice I had.

But the worse is when people don't say anything to me but just stare at my zits for so long as if they are comparing Mr and Mrs Zit together and counting the number of babies they've produced.

Well.. my acne started when I was like 19 or 20 (I'm 22 now)...so I was spared a lot of the immature rude comments I guess. Usually no one comments on the acne but those who do, usually do so with concern and make suggestions about seeing a derm.

but a couple bad comments do come to mind....

1) my grandmother: "You would be beautiful if that acne would just clear up."

2) this guy at the mall who stopped me as I walking by and tried to sell me an expensive soap claiming that it would clear up my face. Then when I refused, he started pressuring my aunt, who was shopping with me at the time. That made me feel like hell....and that was one of my better face days.... cry.gif

I havent really had any bad comments other than:

'Have you heard of clearsil?'

but other than that what gets me is when people cant look u straight in the eye, or their talking to u but blatently looking at ur face,or have to double take, or u catch them staring at u and wen u look at them they sharply look the other way. That hurts quite a bit.

When i was about 13, my forehead suddenly exploded with acne. One day at school, A teacher (not a teacher of mine) sort ran into me and suddenly SHRIEKED "Oh my GOD, what happened to YOU!". About a split second later she realised, and was totally embarrased and scurried away saying "Sorry, never mind!" She was obviously mortified and made a real point out of being nice to me after that (she was one of the most notoriuosly evil teachers in the school) but I still felt pretty awful. I went home and just stared in the mirror thinking: "I am so hideous I actually terrified someone."

I was really down for a while, but I am glad it happend at 13, when I wasn't that self-conciuos and actually had a decent life despite acne, and not at, like, 17, when it probably would have driven me to the kitchen knife drawer.

Here are a few things that've been said to me over the past year:

"Your acne makes your face ugly."

"I had no idea it was this bad."

"That line of acne on your forhead looks like a third eyebrow." (Rather unique, that one)

"Ewwwwwww!"

The comments aren't that bad (the first one was the only one that really hurt). They're not exactly good though, either. Ah well.

People are always telling my hair is causing all the acne on my forehead. I tell them there are other parts of my body that have hair and dont get acne wink.gif

Me and my friends always joke around and call each other gay. One time in like year 8 this kid said my zits spell out "fag" on my forehead, i think he drew a picture of it to. That was embarassing. Funny part is we still tease the crap out of each other and were like best friends in highschool. I secretly tried extra hard to get him back for it through out the whole year, I remember i signed him for some gay community subscription, his mom found the pamhplets and went crazy at him lol.gif Can't believe we were that immature in highschool. First we tease other about:

-"yo moma" jokes [year 7]

-"braces jokes for him" and "acne jokes for me" [year 8-10]

-"your girlfirend is..... " type of jokes [year 11 to present].

Acne jokes had to be the hardest to deal with because they were something more realistic and truthfull than the other jokes. For example; jokes about me "having more zits than anyone in the room" is true as appose to "my girlfirend having a vagina the size of the Grand Canyon" which i know is not true. "If someone else had my pimples they would think about killing themselves" is true as appose to "my mom is stupid enough trip over a cordless phone" [such a shit joke] which is not true. The more acurate a joke is the harder is to shrug off. However jokes that are completely inacurate are more likely to be remembered.

I wonder if he's at braces.org having a bitch about me to eusa_think.gif
