Day 106

Hi there. I took a 1.5 days break from BP and it did help with bringing down the redness. HOWEVER, one of my clogged pores is now turning into a real pimple. I've got tons of stuff to deal with on my face, but I decided to call out the spots on my left side, so you can see what is getting me so frustrated.

A & D : These were big clusters of zits that were really swollen (see pics from Day 1). Now they are totally inactive areas with thick dead skin. I'm afraid they will never go away :(

B: These are all clogged pores which keep getting closer to the surface. I wonder if there is a way to speed up this process. Notice the reddest one near my eye. I wish they would just come to a head or something so I can deal with them. I've tried to do extractions with a little extracting tool but they don't budge at all.

*edit: Woweee! That red one came to a head, drained naturally, and dissolved over night! BP rocks, dudes and dudettes!!!!

C: This is a pimple that does not have a head. I've had this kind before. I think it may be a small cyst. In which case, it will be there for a very long time.

As you can see, I've got all the same problems on the right side of my face, as well. I WANT A NEW FACE.

    ow bless :D i wish i could give you a big hug, or a new face as you want, lol

    i really feel for you, this battle with acne is so unfair. for the record i think you have come a long way and you should feel proud, but at the same time it must be tough for you if you have done accutane too.

    i really hope you start to feel better soon

    Have you ever had an injection of kenalog for a cyst? goes away in 12-24 hours and severly improves your self-esteem. I havent had one in a long time but Ive gotten a ton of them. Work like magic! ask your derm, they can fit you in at last minute and it only takes 5 minutes since its not a real appointment.

    I don't know if it was kenalog but I did get injections. At the time I was on Accutane and I had broken out with HUGE cysts. I had to ask the doctor to inject them (she did not offer) because I had heard about them from someone else. Man...oh, man...I still remember how much those hurt. I'm sure it was because they were so big though. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I know you have probably heard tons of comments like this, but you are clearing up brilliantly and I have no doubt that you will continue to do so. You are also giving serious hope to people out there showing that there is help to be had and they are not suffering alone.

    Keep it up and don't be discouraged!
