Me ...

Whoo! Okay. It's definitely time for an update.

My skin really isn't bothering me very much anymore thank GOD. I wish I had some product to praise or advice to give but really ... it just cleared up on its own.

Actually, now that I think of it - I DO reccomend just giving your skin time to <i>heal</i> ... don't constantly attack it with all those harsh chemicals and things. Stop using the cleansers and lotions and stuff - I take a shower twice a day, night and morning, so I don't actually use a cleanser, I just use plain old water, and really ... that makes a big difference.

That I think will help a lot. It did for me, anyway. I wish you the best of luck because I've been where you are and I know how much it SUCKS. It's horrible. It can ruin your life, but don't let it. Ignore it. It feeds on attention. Stop CARING.

Yeah ... anyway ... you guys are so nice. Thanks so much ^^ I'm really, truly flattered.

    If they're just red marks, they're probobly not scars. They'll probobly fade in a couple of months or a year at max. I thought all my red marks were scars but the scar board assured me.

    Hang in there Girl. Your skin is going to age a little bit, and hopefully, if your marks aren't deep .. they kind of fade away.

    I would recommend seeing a derm though. Trust me, its hard for me to show the world my scars, but after all.. I have to go out and live with it. its only a teeny tiny bit harder talking to the derm about it . :P its worth it

    That is so wild, I have to send you a pic of me because, I'm serious, we look a lot alike at least according to this pic of you. Except the skin on my face is the prob and the skin on my body is fine :P

    Anyway, absolutely see a dermatologist>don't be embarassed at all>most derms have seen it all so they won't be judging you, that's what they're there for.

    You're beautiful by the way>it's funny but I can see you're pretty, actually notice that we look similar but I myself feel I look like shit?? Maybe 'cause the skin on face sucks Argh.

    In the mean time, make that appt, get a referal (sp?) for a private practice derm from a derm clinic at a hospital>that way you could get agood doc who has experience treating you'r type of prob.

    Best o' luck

    I have the same problem as you with my acne...cept I have some on my face too. But my main area of problem is my back. I fear wearing bathing suits or tank tops...even dresses. And nothing seems to help when it comes to my back!

    i also had acne on my back and chest. it cleared up in about a month of using the proactiv sulfur treatment. i put it on every morning and every night until it cleared up and i continute to use it twice a day so it dosn't come back. unfortunaly proactiv dind't do anything to my face after about a month, and it actually seemed worse. when i used the sulfur on my face it just kept pealing and i looked more rediclious. the skin on your back is tougher then that of your face so it can take abconsant drying agent like sulfur. im sure you can find another sulffur treatment other than proactiv, casue its overpriced. trying it cant hurt. just a little advice. good luck. and i think your hot.
