  1. Ok, so I have barely ever had actual pimples, but I've had these red dots on my skin, they don't hurt, I've had this kind of thing since I was 11. I've tried a lot of things but nothing seems to work.
  2. Is this a broken capillary on my nose? Thanks for any help.

  3. Take vitamin D and K to begin with, that will help rebalance your retinoids. Anxiety is probably one of the main causes, as Accutane completely messes up your stress and sex hormones, so right now your body probably feels a tonne of stress. People who take such a limited dose recover much better, and one of my friends took 80mg for 15 months and he is good now, though it knocked him around for a fair bit.

    One of the ironic things about accutane is it makes your body react poorly to stress, then creates a fuckton of it.

    My full recovery advise is:
    "Buy creatine, fish oil, coq10, zinc, multivitamins and a decent protein powder, take the recommended dosages for all of these, and try to meditate for 20 minutes a day"(if its early days take some k2 and vitD as well, that will get your retinoids in check post tane)

    Anyway, even if you are a random healthy male the things I've recommended would only improve your health, all would probs be available if you went to your local discount chemist 
  4. On my cheek I noticed there was the slightest bump so I tried messing with it even tho nothing came out ever. The bump couldn’t be seen unless you like went really close to the mirror and moved the skin. But I thought maybe it was a pimple forming with no head yet and it would come out so I messed with it more but I noticed time passed and nothing came out so I let it be but now I just have this red thing on my cheek that won’t go away. The pimple never formed a head and it doesn’t hurt it just feels a bit different from the surrounding skin like tender. Any tips on what can help the redness or heal it. I feel maybe with my long nails I injured my skin..? Or could it be something else. Also it’s been about 2 weeks
  5. So yesterday I was browsing an old log that said to put desitin (diaper rash cream) on your face to get rid of acne and red marks. So me being tired trying everything from seaweed to vinegar wanderd over to the baby section of CVS. They had the desitin but I decided to take a chance and go a gentle route. I bought a baby wash, the desitin, and a baby moisturizer. These have oats, Aloe Vera, and calendula which have anti inflammatory soothing properties. When I got home I used the wash, a gentle toner that I had lying around, the moisturizer, and finally the desitin. When I woke up this morning I was SHOOK. That giant comadone that I had been furiously rubbing stubborn acne gel on (for a week 2 times a day) was gone. I have been using acne products for over a year so maybe that is what was aggravating my skin. It's only day 1 but I'll update you on my progress

  7. So I had a scab on my nose around December 2015. The scab eventually healed but has left pink/red skin behind that is still around. Does anybody know what this is and how to manage it?
  8. Pile Cream/Haemorrhoid Ointment Just to let you all know, im a 17 year old lad from England. Ive had every cream, wash, & scrub man can make and nothing has really helped me. Ive had been on 3 different kinds of anti bitoics for my acne and ive been recently reffered to a dermatalogist. Anyway, i was told to try pile cream for my spots so i thought what have i got to loose. Went to Bargain Buys (Discount UK) and bought a tube for £1. Ive been using it for 3 days and i dont wanna get my hopes up too quick but its working wonders. Ive just had a massive breakout over the last week. Like were talking worst its ever been you could do dot to dot on my face. But with this cream My pores are less apparant, its got anti inflammatory so its reduced the size of my existing spots, Put the healing process into over drive and makes my skin feel really soft i cant believe how quick its healing. If it keeps up ill buy £50 worth. Anyway if i were you id try it! Dont over do it though because it is quite oily so it might start to back fire. Absolutely recommend trying it. My daily routine: use clearasil cleansing liquid with a cotton pad to clean my face on a morning and take 2 erothmycin tablets (would highly recommend but their perscription only) then i cleanse again before bed, apply a thin layer of pile cream allover my face. Wait for it to soak in for abit, then put dots of sudocrem on my scabby spots Aswell and take another 2 erothmycin then about twice a week i exfoliate using a tea tree face scrub and once a week ill put a mud mask on. If you use clearasil cleanser like me, add about 10 drops of pure tea tree oil to the mix and shake it before you use it, natural aid for acne. hope this helps!
  9. I'm considering getting laser work done on my red marks leftover from acne. I do not have that much scarring but rather, red hyper-pigmentation marks. For whoever has gotten IPL done for red marks (not deep scars), what was your experience like? Did you see positive results? How much did you pay per session? Thanks!
  10. Hello. I'm a 13 year old girl in junior high, and obviously, I have severe acne scarring. Of all kinds, too. Box scars, rolling scars, ice pick scars, red scars, brown scars.... you name it. The worse part, is that it isn't even about zits anymore. All the treatments I see on here are STRICTLY for acne, whether it be red bumps or whiteheads. Nothing for my type of situation. And if there are, it's pretty much pointless since it's something that requires insurance like laser treatments or fillers. Nothing for a girl my age. I've dealt with this for 2 years now. I have absolutely NOBODY to talk to, my confidence has plummeted to the bottom of the Earth, and the teachers at school send me to the counselor because they think I have "social anxiety" no..... I just hate my face. I can't stand to show it to people. I can't stand to look in the mirror, if I do I start sobbing because of the wretched scars. Sometimes I even gag at the sight of them. Dermatologist I used to go to won't accept my insurance , so I have nothing. NOTHING. NOT A SINGLE THING TO HELP ME. I'm sorry if my little vent is bland or boring... I just needed to kinda get rid of it all.
  11. Does Clindamycin Phosphate Gel help fade red acne marks/inflammatory acne, or is it used for other types of acne? I use Tazorac at nighttime and it works really well to reduce redness overnight, but as SOON as I wash my face and apply Clindamycin, it ruins everything. I will say it DOES work for clearing up whiteheads on my forehead (my forehead is almost 100% clear im so happy ) ...but for my cheeks it just makes it this awful blood-red color, plus this horrendous itching that won't go away until I wash my face at night to apply my second medication. So once again, is Clindamycin not used for PIH/red marks? Should I just use Tazorac for my cheeks? Please help, I would greatly appreciate it!
  12. So I really don't know what to do I've improved my diet and everything and now my right cheek is like this! AHA seems to make my marks darker and purple and I took these photos right after using it so no more AHA for me, my right cheek doesn't even look bad when its direct light straight on but when I turn my head the light makes it looks way worse and when I back up and look into the mirror it looks really weird and these pics make it looks really bad, I want to fix this while im young but how? it feels flat but I can see some slight slight indents yet it looks so bad! I did poke my skin with a sewing needle to drain a cyst (REALLY Stupid I wish I knew ) The holes left behind from the needle are barely indented yet look so bad and in the mirror everything looks flat except a very very small intent in some spots and the holes! What should I do? Derma roller or stamp *Banish Kit* (look it up if your not sure what it is) or? Could it be an illusion from the redness? Thank you for all the help just really down and have noone to help me besides this forum! Thanks again!

  15. Hey guys, Decided to sign up since I feel like I'll get some help here. So today I decided to squeeze out the blackheads on my nose on Accutane, I used to squeeze them out before when they got too noticeable but on Accutane I saw something different. My nose got red and I felt like it was burning. I know my skin is more sensitive after Accutane, which should've made me stop right there but now I have neosporin on my nose for being stubborn. will the redness go away or have I just created scarring? Even as I applied neosporin, it was sort of burning but not anymore. I'm also using clyndamycin if that helps but I didnt apply after the blackhead removal. Thanks!
  16. Hi, Has anyone ever experienced carpet burn on their face while on accutane ?
  17. Ok so I got what I believe to be a whitehead on my lip line back in early May, I popped it, pus came out, and it went away. Then it came back in mid June, and I did the same thing, and then back in mid July, same thing. However, ever since July, the spot didn't fade like usual, it kind of just lingered there. Whenever I stretched my lip, and looked very closely at it, I saw what I believe to be a whitehead, I think I might of not got all the pus out. So I applied BP and aha as a spot treatment for a couple of weeks, off and on, but stopped because I felt it was making it worse. Last week I tried to pop it with a needle, and failed. And again 3 or 4 days ago I tried to pop again, but only some skin came off. I haven't touched it since, and I've been putting aloe vera on it to try and cool and soothe the spot. I asked my dentist today while getting a checkup, and she said it sounds like a cold sore and should dissipate within a few weeks or a month if I don't touch it. Has anyone experienced something like this or maybe offer their opinion because I feel like I can see pus, but I'm not sure anymore, as that could be skin growing over the wound. Also is this spot going to stick around for much longer? I'm going to college in a couple of weeks, and I have been losing sleep all this week, just wanting my lips to look normal again. My parents said to leave it alone and don't put anything on it and it will go away, do you guys agree? Please any help, thoughts, or opinions would be greatly appreciated as I'm losing sleep each night, developing a depressed state of mind, and just overall going crazy thinking about it. Edit: New pics-
  18. I have really bad post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, they're basically huge red marks on my face. I've tried everything and nothing seems to help reduce it. I know it's going to take more than a couple weeks, but it's so embarrassing. It's even dry and flaking and I can't cover it up with concealer. Does anyone have any treatment, tips or suggestions? Please help!
  19. I had sebaceous hyperplasia on my cheek 8 months back and got it removed then by electrocautery. It scabbed and fell off by itself, but it has remained pinkish-red up til now. Other than 10mg of Oratane, and antibiotics to clear the wound in case it got infected, for the 1 month after it scabbed, I have not applied any other ointment on it. I did not touch it either. I have only washed my face very mildly with soap around the scab and let water gently flow down to the scab. After the scab fell off by itself, which took a month, I have applied just my mosturisers and sunscreens as recommended by my doctor. I've done so for 7 months now, and the scabbing havent seem to have healed. I usually try to stay indoors away from the sun but on average, I get into the sun for about 1 hour per day due to traveling. What could have gone wrong? Why hasn't the area where the electrocautery procedure had been performed returned back to the normal colour of my skin? What should I do to cure this?
  20. Hi- I have had red marks on and off on my cheeks for the past 3 years now and it seems to only be getting worse. Has anyone else had any luck getting rid of the scars? Any remedies I should try? I have been told it's common to get acne/red marks after getting your appendix removed and that is around the same time I started getting acne. I'm getting married in 6 months and want to find out if it even possible to get rid of my marks that fast? Anything helps-thank you

  22. Is This Pih, Pie Or A Scar?

    Forums Scar treatments 2 replies

    So what is this? 1) The first picture was taken in February 2014, and the second one is taken now in June 2014. It was first a little pimple I guess, that I tried to pop or scratch... I was on accutane and finished my course 2 months ago... So it became a scab and then a brown mark. After that I was growing a beard and hiding it, but I don't like my beard, and now it has become pink skin. You can't really see it very well on the picture, but in real life you can see it from far since it's so pink.. Looks like eczema but doesn't itch. When I press on it, it becomes like normal skin color or white, so either it's PIE (Post inflammatory erythema) or a scar... Can someone tell? And will it vanish? 2) The blue color, can you guys see what it is? I guess it's a scar, it's very flat. This has been for 2 months. Should I put mederma on it even if it is not raised? I'm very scared it will become raised or hypotrophic or something
  23. I had a cyst on my cheek and got it removed about two weeks ago. Where my stitches were, at the end of it there is a small red bump. It's been there for a couple days and it accidentally popped one day while I was washing my face so I thought it would go down but it's still there. It's not very big, but I hate it. That's not another cyst forming, is it? How can I get rid of it quickly?
  24. So I had a blackhead that become a red pimple on my boob, yeah i occasionally get a pimple there from wearing sports bras and working out. I popped it, and now for at least two weeks there has been a really weird scar. It's brownish around the outside like a normal mark, but the inside is like a new lower layer of skin that is really red and pink, and I don't know how to close it or make it go away or what. I've been trying some neosporin and benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid but nothing seems to help. Any fast treatments?
  25. She uses chemical peel (I think it's either TCA or glycolic or a combination) and heals quite quickly in a month. this is my skin as of today Do you think I can improve this fast with chemical peel? I'm also on retin a for about 3 months if that's anything. Thanks in advance! Aside from some deep spots that I have, I think my pigmentation area is very similar to hers.
