Meanest thing that someone has said about your acne

Recommended Posts

Overhearing some girls say ewwww, when they were talking about me.  I also overheard some girl say "He's the biggest freak in the school".  There where others too numerous to mention, but those just stick in my head.

1. In school, my classmate would point out my bad skin in front of others and say "eww, dude what is wrong with ur face,  i thought u did facial treatment"

2. Look into my face and say straight away "you should go on facial treatment"

3. "Ahh it is okay that u have ugly face, at least u have a nice body"

4. A person i barely knew would yell out in the lift full of people "dude, what's wrong with your face, why are u getting so many pimples, not good not good" . Everyone look at me. Another man say "you should apply cucumbers"....

5. Another day a man approaches me in the lift and advertise a soap that would help me to get rid of acne. Desperately I DID AND BOUGHT A FREAKING SOUP..well guys i guess we all knw that it did nothing

6. "Dude what's wrong with your back. I thought u shower regularly"

7. I am having this anxiety to enter pharmacy, coz whenever i ask for a certain cream brand they would always look at my face and ask "anti acne cream?"

But hey guys,  I am not here to complain..i am here to tell you "THAT ALL OF YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, AND JUST BE STRONG"
Wht doesn't kill you makes you stronger! One day you would look back at all this past, and smile back☺

Guys, pleaseee stay strong and I wish all the best for youuu

I've had the usual "why don't you wash your face?" comment, even from adults who should have known better.

A girl once told me that I should stay in doors!

I once applied for a job at a drive through when I was 15, which took a lot of guts for me as I was pretty shy at that age. After the interview I sat around the corner from the manager's office and overheard her saying that they couldn't give me the job because I looked unhygienic and I'd put the customers off eating! They then laughed at me for a while. That hurt pretty bad.

The worst comments I've heard weren't even directed at me. They were said by my friends and family of others who had acne, either in real life or magazines or on tv, which I think is the main reason I go bit screwed up. My dad used to grimace whenever he saw someone on tv with acne and say "oh, no! look at that face!". They'd never say it to me or to anyone else's face, but they obviously looked down on people like that. 

But yeah, some people say mean things maliciously, other people are just stupid and say things without thinking. For me I just kinda got used to it, so it was like water rolling off a duck's back. The fact that it lasted so long that I was able to get used to it is in itself is a bit depressing!

I am originally Nigerian, and I hate to say it but people there are usually very ignorant about acne and other skin conditions. Once I had a family gathering, this was at the climax of my acne I had pimples, cysts blackheads scars everything - you name it! Me being anxious about the starring I went to apply shed loads of makeup onto my face. It was not my correct shade and tend to show my acne even more (anyone seen that "girls who try and cover acne with makeup chocolate bar) that was me. As we got there I couldn't help but notice the stares. These were relatives I had not seen for a while and they didn't seem to remember me 

We finally sat down to eat and one of my Auntys "the loud conversation starter" Screamed 

"WHAT IS THAT ALL OVER YOUR FACE" 

I nearly chocked on my food. 
Looking to my mum for her to maybe defend me here or give them on explanation and she said 

"I DONT KNOW WHY ITS BECOME SO ROCKY! "

My my cousins who have perfectly clear skin started laughing and called me "Stone Face" 

I just wanted to go home.

One time when I had it really bad I was saying goodbye to my nana and when I went to give her a good-bye hug she leaned her face away from me and was like "Sorry, I don't want to get your acne". Like wtf that doesn't even make sense! I got so mad at her, I ran away teary-eyed. 

Another time I was at my waitressing job. I was feeling pretty okay with my skin that day and wasn't worrying about it much. I wasn't even wearing make-up. One of my co-workers goes "What happened to your face?'. I didn't even know what to say to that and just said "I don't know, it's always been this way...". And she goes "Yeah, but not THAT bad". Like what the hell is wrong with people, why would you say that to someone? Needless to say I cried in the bathroom after that and had terrible anxiety for the rest of my shift.

Your teachers should not be teachers. In fact they probably should not have any sort of job that requires contact with human beings.

Oh, so so so many to remember. I've honestly blocked most of them out of my memory. Of course I've had many random people walk up to me and recommend something for my acne which was obviously embarrassing. Several family  members have commented, including my cousin who I hate. He's seriously such a bastard. One day he pointed at my face and said"Ewwww!!! Look at all your acne haha!!" I almost lost it. I was also called ugly daily throughout all of middle school while people threw things at me. Another time I remember, was in in high school. I was sitting in class and some guy said to another guy: "You should go out with Victoria, haha!", and in front of the whole class he was like, "ew no, her face is disgusting!" The funny thing is, a few years later after I went on Accutane the first time, and I was out of high school, I saw him working at BK while I was out with my mom. He didn't know who I was, and asked me out. Then, I remember this time in Senior year in computer class, these two girls were sitting next to me and they started talking about my acne. "OMG, look at her face, it's so bad, poor thing, etc etc." That was super awkward. My worst memory though was around 7th grade. I was best friends with this girl name Rachel, she was one of the "popular girls" in school. Anyhow, every year, she had a special birthday party every year that was super "exclusive." I remember I didn't get invited to her last one, and I didn't  understand why. Well, a mutual friend came to me one day and sat me down and told me that Rachel doesn't want to be seen with me or be my friend anymore because she was only friends with "pretty" girls, and my acne made me ugly. That sucked, a lot.

Wow, I started this topic almost 13 years ago.  In 2005 I completed 6 months of 80mg of accutane.  My acne was reduced by 95 percent.  I went on to become a law enforcement officer and have a lot of different relationships.  I am now outgoing with a large group of friends .   I am 30 years old and am loving life.  Accutane saved me at 18 years old. I urge anyone reading this to get on accutane if your acne is affecting your life.  This drug literally saved me.

Holy crap you really did start this thread, i went to page 1 to see if you were telling the truth. Must be something knowing that you started a thread that has taken a life of its own. Heck even i have replied to this topic... like 20 pages ago lol, it was like two or three years back. I wonder how much of it you've read, also what made you come back to the org? Have you been checking this thread over the years or have you just now found out about it being as big as it is? Congrats on making one of the most if not THE most used thread on this site, theres a lot of history here.

I remembered I used to come on this site when I was desperate to try something new.  The site owner had the regimen which I tried and it didn't work due to the fact that I had severe nodular acne.   There where other threads on accutane and back at the time you could post up pictures of yourself so a lot of people kept accutane logs with updated pictures once a month.  Looking at the great results I decided to try it as I had used minocycline tetracycline and a few other antibiotics that would clear the acne but as soon as I stopped would come right back.  I remembered this thread had a lot of replies at the time I was shocked when i checked it yesterday it was still around with over 2000 posts.  I hope it helped some people.

I was 16 years old life guarding at the pool when these cute girls that liked me came by. They looked at my acne ridden face and asked "what happened to your face" while making faces of disgust and disbelief. I turned red like a tomato, said a few quick words, and quickly made my way to the back room, out of sight.

There has been too many numerous things that were said that I cant narrow it down to one particular thing.  Maybe when my mother said in a roundabout way that I was ugly.  She would sometimes give me patronizing comments in the past that I knew was a lie.  In this particular instance, I really felt that she had sobering look of truth on her face when she said that I was ugly.

This guy understands what I'm going through. I have to purposely let girls that like me see me from a far away distance because when they get up close and see my acne, the attraction wears off

"What happened to your face?!" - rude relative (while trying to remove my hat and take a better look.)
"My skin used to be like yours." - supervisor whose skin is totally flawless
"Try this sample, it helps cure acne." - skin care sales
"You're not wearing makeup today right?" - friend (I was. Just couldn't cover everything up.)

The worst comment was in 6th grade. This kid tells me "I just want to pop all your pimples."  I was mortified because he said it in front of so many of classmates.
