I've been dealing with acne for 10+ years but ive recently just gotten a TON of these tiny, skin coloured bumps around my mouth. Just in the last 2 weeks, and there is about 25+ of them. They dont hurt and they haven't grown, but definitely aren't going away. What are they? What caused them? And how do I get rid of them? Currently on Doxy, Diane 35, and using the Exposed Skin Care line.
I am an early 40's professional woman who ended up with a horrible breakout on my neck this summer and fall. I am a university professor, so standing up in front of my class became a daily dose of humiliation. I have always had oily skin and have been on acne medication (Spironolactone) for 8 years. But then, this...
No creams or oral antibiotics even touched the problem so my dermatologist scheduled me to start Accutane. I was concerned about the long term side effects at my age, so six days before I was supposed to start the drug, I found the Acne.org regimen. This was a last ditch effort to try to save my skin. I started right after Thanksgiving 2017 and was completely clear by Christmas. I started the AHA at Christmas along with the supplements Dan recommends on his blog (fish oil, zinc, vitamin d3) and I'm still clear at the end of January. My skin tone and texture has never been better. I am totally amazed and in love with this system. I am not a product endorser by any means, but these products have so exceeded my expectations that I felt compelled to share. I don't even wear foundation now. The "after" photos are from the end of January, almost 2 months to the day after starting the regimen--no foundation or makeup except eyes.
It used to be worse, I've been treating it myself but it has been a major blow for my self confidence I go to talk to people and all they notice is my acne and pimple
everyone gets a zit but when everyone else's leaves mine stick around someone please help me make all of this go away.

Hello everyone. I’ve decided to join this forum so I can talk to people that will understand what I’m going through. I’m loosing hope and I was hoping someone could give me some comforting advice . I’ve been struggling for acne for years and this year is far by the worse with the past 2 years of it happening . My face has changed completely and the scarring and hyperpigmentation has increased . It has spread to my side burns and neck . With the the chin and cheek areas the most affected . The lesions are very deep and painful and take weeks to go down sometimes it won’t go down at all. I was diagnosed with PCOS once when I was 20 when I missed my period for the first time for a month . They gave me birth control only for one month and the cyst went away . At that time I had gained weight and broke out with cysts on my cheek. They went away and everything went normal . Sadly that same year I got an abortion . Ever since it’s been on and off for me . With ovarian cysts and acne coming and going . There were times where I would be clear for a months on end and then back to the same story . I’ve tried many topical antibiotics and tretinoin cream numerous times . I’ve tried chemical peels and many washes such as salicyic acid and peroxide washes . Birth control had further worsene the acne . I’ve also tried spirinolactone for 2 months when I’ve finally had enough . And put down all the medicine .
Aside from over the counter and prescribed medications I’ve also tried countless natural remedies such as tumeric masks , aspirin masks , teas and herbs and vitamins. I’ve also tried saw pimento berries and bitters detox which i didn’t stick with for long because the taste is horrid.
Dietary changes have been applied as well . Eliminating all dairy , sugars and grains . Even going vegan for months .
I also have currently quit cosmetics as this is only masking my problem and making me more stressed .
im reaching out because it’s a point where I’m at a loss . My social life has changed . I Never go out and I haven’t dated in a while . I’m usually always alone . I know it’s very silly but it’s actally ruining my life and further destroying my skin . When it becomes a mental issue I feel like things should be addressed .
I don’t know why my bumps are still not going away. I don’t even know if it is acne, it goes away for a few hours and then flares up. I’m tired of spending so much money trying different things and it is still not gone. I’ve used proactive, neutrogena, and clean and clear and a lot more products. The proactive seemed to be working but I quit using it for a month and I guess my skin got use to it and it doesn’t work anymore. I ordered Dans regimen it cleared the bumps on my forehead but not the ones on my right cheek as seen in the picture. I stopped using the regimen because it dried my skin to the point it hurt to even blink or even talk. Which I don’t understand why it dried out my eyes since I didn’t apply the bp in that area. The bumps are only on my right cheek which I find that weird. I’m wondering if it’s something to do with my diet. If anybody has had similar bumps that I do. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!
Okay so around June 2015 (when I posted my first post) my skin wasn't too bad but it sucked, I had little bumps EVERYWHERE and they did not want to go away, so I went to the dermatologist some time after and they prescribed me a generic version of Retin-A. It worked fairly good, all the nasty stuff under my skin started surfacing and popping but it reached a point where everything started to surface and not go away. So I was a face full of pus and to top everything off, I started having cystic acne too. I did the worst thing I could do which is to pick it, I was left with what I had in the before picture ^. My face was now left with pus, scabs, pimples, and A LOT of redness. I eventually got depressed and did not want to go back to school (all this was also during the summer right before my sophomore year of high school), I cried every night feeling worthless and I even decided to be homeschooled and not go to my public school anymore, I didn't even care if I left my friends. But homeschooling didn't work out since I had missed so much of public school already so I had to go back to school without warning and felt so insecure that I covered my cheeks with skin colored tape. That was another reason my skin got worse because the tape would just rip off my scabs but I didn't care at the time because I would rather hide my acne then show it. So eventually two years passed and I took the after picture last night, I honestly can't exactly say what helped my skin because I'm not 100% sure but if I did have to say an answer then it would be time. The only product I've used throughout back then and now is the cetaphil daily cleanser for normal to oily skin. Currently my face routine is just the cleanser and to exfoliate with this tiny rubber exfoliator once in a while. I have so much scars right now that it still makes me really insecure, I've also worn makeup everyday to school for all four years but recently since two weeks ago I have been stopping a bit because I joined the swim team. I think the cause of all of this was that I fell asleep with a ton of makeup on after my 15th birthday party. Well that is all and I wish all you guys luck with your acne journey !!! I'm currently a senior in hs and I'll update you guys if any major changes happen! Feel free to contact me if you'd like too
these little annoying bumps started appearing like two months ago. At the start, it wasn't so bad but lately got worse.
I have acne prone skin, but mostly I got breakouts on chin area and jawline, but this time it started appearing on the forehead and on cheeks around my mouth what I have never experienced. Also, those bumps are on my chest a bit.
Before I went for BHA peeling, but no result.. after I started using Nizoral, cuz I thought It could be caused by Malassezia, this is my 4th day, but no results.
I was wondering that before I was using steroid cream, could it be the reason of that?
P.S. Living in very hot weather
Looking forward to hearing from you guys.
have a great day!
This is actually my first time using this product after trying so many different others. There were some that worked, but I noticed my face becoming dependent on it. So now being 30 I realized adult acne is hard to tame, therefore I decided to upload a pre treatment video and show my progress from month to month... He's to new beginnings! Wish me luck!
I'm a 17 year old boy whos been suffering from moderate acne for years but recently I don't get as many pimples/spots (still some). My main problem is my hyperpigmentation/scarring. I've been using Lush Herbalism for last Two months alongside aveeno moisturizer but hasn't seem to do anything.
