    Awesome progress hun!! Both sides and especially your left side (the pictures right) even looks like it's flattening out! And yay for no more cyclops! :) My cyclops eyes are almost gone as well.. lol... I'll probably get another one now that I said that! Keep it up!

    Thanks Star! I can hardly believe how fast the cyclops eye went away! I just popped that big ugly yellow thing on my left temple...it was gross. But I'm applying tea tree oil to it every couple of hours, so hopefully it won't get infected. I know...I shouldn't pick...but I really couldn't bear to walk around with that thing on my face :)

    As for the other side, where the dark red spot is, I really messed with that a lot back before I found acne.org. For some reason, it looks like a big puddle of dried blood under my skin. Not sure what to do about it. I thought it would start to fade in time, but it has been that way for about a month

    Are you sure that's not a cyst? It could be.. I don't know, I haven't really had any in the past 5 years since I got acne but over the past about 6 months I've had like 7 pop up. I don't mind them so much right now, they don't look like zits, mine are so dark they almost look like freckles, I'm just focusing on getting clear first. Have you noticed that new zits that pop up aren't lasting as long, because I've noticed that with most of mine. I still get pissed when I get them, but after they're gone I look at my gallery and realize that they weren't there so long. I've basically stopped picking at my face, but I do still pop spots when they come to a head. If it's sitting there begging to be popped I don't see anything wrong with it. You're looking great though! Keep it up!

    Star: I think it is a cyst, but I messed with it early on, when I thought it was just pimple. Now it's annoying me!

    Queen: Thanks for looking through my album! I'm glad I inspire you :) I will keep on posting pics until I'm clear...and I WILL BE CLEAR!!!

    I think your right side is looking awesome, really the redness surrounding the breakout has gone down tremendously.

    Augh, I know what you mean about picking. I do not want to pick since people say not to but if I see a huge zit come to a big white head how can I not pop that sucker?

    Hi Celebration,

    I only recently discovered your progress pictures but i just want to wish you the best of luck and to say I can see an amazing improvement. I too suffer from acne, but would never have the courage to post my pictures. Thank you for being such an inspiration for us.

    Hey everybody! You guys are all so wonderful. Thanks for the support. Really, it keeps me going!!! I just saw my regular doctor this morning for another reason, and she gave me some Minocycline (antibiotics) for my acne, so I've started taking those today too. In case you care, the prescription was $84.99 without insurance. ARRRRGh!!! :):dance:

    Hi there darlin...how are you doing? Acne is keepin you busy huh...you Just hang in there, we are all praying for you... Here are my two cents. You don't have to stop what you're doing...but I want you to try this.

    Start drinking Apple Cider Vinegar (make sure its pure) 2 tsp x 3 daily

    Drink Lots and lots of water but with lemon. Slice a nice thick slice. Leave the slice in the glass and poke it with spoon or knife before you fill it up.

    I don't know where you are, but see if you can find a indian store or some place where they sell Veg (if you can't find radish let me know, ill will send some to you). Buy white radish. Its long...don't buy the small red one. Peel a good size skin, and put that on your acne, and see the wonder. Its gonna ich like a bich...but leave it on. leave it for about 5 min...then slice cucumber and put the slices on your acne, (make sure the cucumber is cold) than rub ice cube on your face.

    Start swimming

    at nite, apply Vit E gel...buy Vit E gel caps...make sure they are pure E. Make sure it say d-alpha not dl-alpha, that is the synthetic one.

    YOU HAVE TO STOP DRINKIN SODA AND STOP EATING FRIED OR FATTY FOOD. I know it's hard, but try to relax as much as you can...rent your fav movies and watch comedy shows. STRESS is one of the biggest reason for acne among others.

    Hope it helps

    Thank you zainu for taking the time to write all that out. It's interesting that you mention swimming because my mom has told me hundreds of times about how when she had acne in high school it went away when she started swimming. My mother and my family doctor agree with you about the stress factor.
