  1. Hello I am kind of concerned about this pimple on the side of my nose. At first I thought it was a pimple and at this time I wasn't aware that it was bad to pop it so I took a clean needle and poked the head and squeezed but only blood and clear liquid came out so I left it alone. After a while I tried again but I noticed it was numb and this was distressing I took the needle and went to see if I could feel anything at all and I swear I must have went a cm deep before I hit the end of this hole, I squeezed again with a pimple tool thing and some weird pus that was gooey and looked like mucus came out. I'm not sure what this is or if I will have a scar from doing this but the main thing i'm concerned about is why it is numb.
  2. Hi everybody, i'm writing because after 1 month of the regiment i am having a lot of breakouts. At the beginning everything was great, my skin cleared up very good but now in the last week my skin started to breakout with big pimples and cistic acne. I even started with AHA+ to stop the breakout but nothing... what i should do ? Was working so good at the beginning In the morning i put the products on my face, but i keep it all day long and before bed i wash my face and apply again the products but with AHA+. I am doing something wrong ? Please help me thanks a lot!
  3. I know, I know I'm screwed. I don't usually pop pimples but this one was just too annoying to bear. I was successful at getting rid of the white, hard "gunk" of the pimple. But then it resulted to this (the biggest red spot). Is this what you call a scab? It was swollen a while ago, but I placed a cold compress to de-swell it, and it worked (now flat). It no longer hurts and no longer burns since I applied aloe vera. But I'm very worried. Will it scar? Should I put Terramycin or something? What should I do? :( Please ignore the other red spots. Those are just acne marks.

    Hello, everyone. I’ve had this on my left cheek for a while now, and I don’t know what it is or how to get rid of it. Does anyone have any clues?
  5. My skin had finally cleared up - until one big read pimple showed up right next to my nose.I made a huge mistake by popping it. I squeezed this stupid pimple until puss was oozing out and it was terribly red. By this time I had realized my mistake, but it was too late. I gently washed it and put some Adapalene Gel on it and then went to sleep hoping that it would reduce by the morning. The next morning, I wake up to an even bigger pimple with a scab and some puss on it. Not only that, but somehow that area around the pimple was red and it was covered with some plastic feeling thing (not sure how else to explain. It was kind of hard and brown looking) that wouldn’t come off. So now my blemish had just gotten three times bigger.I tried to put aloe Vera gel on it, tried to put Adapalene Gel (again!) on it, and washed it. I knew this was wrong, but I did it in blind rage and stupidity. Finally, after nothing worked, I just left it alone.... until I didn’t. I picked the scab and some of the saran-wrap feeling stuff off.Since then, I’ve left it alone and nothing has gotten any better. And even worse, I’m almost absolutely positive that this is going to leave a mark. I am so stressed out about the aftermath of this disaster. HEELPP I’m desperate for some kind of solution to the huge mess I’ve caused. Here you can see the pimple and the hard stuff (I have no clue what it is ) around it.
  6. Hi, I am 31 years old (Indian origin). I have had clear skin all my life, until last year in September 2017. I started breaking out acne all across my jawline, chin and cheeks. A visit to the DERM and they put me on Doxycycline saying that i had hormonal imbalances. I took it for 4 months but my acne reduced only little bit and never cleared up completely. Once i stopped taking doxycycline, my face started breaking out again and this time much more badly including the forehead. I tired all OTC treatments like benzoyl peroxide and even stopped eating dairy completely. But nothing worked. I still continue to breakout badly with no respite. I made a second visit to DERM today and she prescribed me amoxicillin 500mg(twice a day) with food. I don't know if this will work or not? She told me that this will be a life long battle. I am really depressed and frustrated with acne breakouts. I don't feel like going anywhere out including office or meeting friends as my face is completely covered with marks, scares and acne(old and new). Please help -- If anyone has faced the same issue and got cured of severe adult acne. No one in my family has had severe or moderate acne before. Also, I don't want to go on any medicines/orals/topicals that are not pregnant friendly, since i am trying to conceive as well.
  7. Guys, help , I've been getting pimples (this huge one) on the same spot over and over... Last time , I got it, it healed after awhile, and now its back again, I dont know why? How do I get rid of it?
  8. I hope this hasn't been asked before, I couldn't find anything that answered my question. Quick Backstory: I've been struggling with moderate acne for over a year now and recently went to the doctor to get birth control and he prescribed me Taro-Clindamycin/Benzoyl Peroxide Gel instead (1%/5%) instead (slight eye roll). Currently I only have 2 actual white head pimples on my cheeks but tons of those under the skin bumps and black heads on my forehead (clogged pores?). I'm 20 years old and have combination skin. Currently it is EXTREMELY dry around my mouth area but I still have an oily forehead and get oily throughout the day. ANYWAY, my question is: how do I include the topical gel into my routine? I currently use a serum and a moisturizer. Do I apply the gel first? Or after my moisturizer? Does anyone also have any tips for this product? Thank you!!
  9. I’m 16 and a virgin. I have not sexually made contact with anyone. I felt this on my lip the other day and stupidly, assuming it was just a pimple, picked it. I, later, saw it in the mirror and began to worry due to its location. Is it a cold sore? It doesn’t throb or hurt constantly, but when I open my mouth it stings (could this be just because I broke the skin and not because it is a cold sore?) I’m extremely worried. The first photo was it at night, I put some Vaseline on it and the below pic is from the morning. I have some acne, but am praying this is also just a pimple.
  10. Hi everyone, I am facing a acne problem from my teenage. I have consulted 3 to 4 doctors and followed the procedures but it is not curing. Some say acne will fade when age goes forward. I am 26 now and it is still there. I don't know what to do now . I have attached my picture of my acne. Also the acne in the picture is somewhat reduced but it is increasing and reducing day by day. Can anyone please help me with this? Thanks
  11. Tell me how you did it. Your acne journey. Since when did you got it? what makes it worse? is it severe or mild? for how long have you been suffering? How have people been treating you? And if you had succeeded, how did you do it? Natural or with the help or medications? Is it cleared 100%? Go on, just tell me everything. Let it all out
  12. Those of us revisiting this thread once again for answers, for a product that works, for another human to relate, we all have one thing in common. We suffer daily, or once monthly, or for the lucky ones once a year. Regardless of the frequency or intensity of your breakouts we all know how painful and embarrassing this condition can be. The thing is when you make the choice to go out the door in the morning and face the day, you have just made a very important choice whether you realize it or not. You have just taken a brave action. If you can go out in the world, push through the pain and ignore the anxiety associated with being seen full breakout, you can conquer ANYTHING! I want all acne suffers out here to realize that we are all cut from the same cloth and we wouldn't be dealt the shit-skin hand if we all weren't strong enough to fight our way through it. Please consider this the next time you feel like saying no to going out with friends or going out to lunch with your family on the weekend. Remember the badge of courage you wear on your face and that those that matter most to you don't mind and wouldn't have you any other way. Look I started this a week ago and I will not give up. I hope you feel inspired, Love and Peace abides!
  13. So I was picking around my face (I know I'm sorry) when I accidentally ripped off a scab that was over a healing pimple, and now there's just this bare red small bump with no skin on top of it. Is this bad and if so is there anything I can do to treat it?

  17. Hi gang! My background: Lurker for close to 10 years, almost as long as I have had acne. I am a mid-20s college student raising a sibling. In other words, I have no time. I want to look presentable, though. This is why clearing my skin naturally is so important to me. I also don't wear makeup.. so it's magnifies the issue. I'm a hard INTJ, if you dig MBTI. That means I'm typically anxious and tense, which I'm sure is a big part of my acne. BCP (Yasmin) cleared my skin in my teens. Went off of it because of some of the possible side effects, then went on Spiro, which worked perfectly. However, I want to heal my body. I don't want to be on medication forever. Both my parents have adult acne, so I could be looking at hard cysts on my face with other inflamed red rolling hills until I hit menopause. I was going to do Accutane, but stopped when I realized I would have to go back on Yasmin (i.e. my skin would be perfect on yasmin so I doubt the accutane would cure me.) I am using the Neutrogena light therapy mask right now. It is helping but I doubt it will help as much as I need. I eat a diet of chicken, vegetables, and glucomannan/oat fiber (non-soluble fibers that fill you up and pass right through.) I have always had chronic constipation, so I take Miralax. When I don't take it, the inflammation gets worse. I have noticed that if I eat a ton of vegetables, my skin can get inflamed. This worries me. When I don't eat, or eat tiny portions to keep myself from starving, acne is reduced. But how can I sustain that? It doesn't seem possible. I know tanning and sweating/working out have helped in the past, but on this diet I have no energy to work out. I am scared of how hungry it would make me. No, not anorexic. I'm 5'6 and ~140. If you have read this far, my heartfelt thanks. I am so grateful for this community. Acne is such a difficult disease to deal with in the modern world-the shame, I mean. MY QUESTION: Is there anything else I can do for my acne naturally? Should I just suck it up and go back on Spiro?
  18. Red bump is now brownish?

    I had this red bump on the side of my face but now it looks darkish. Can anyone tell me what this is and what treatment I can do? In case you're wondering, I never intentionally touch it, I let it be. Also I am Filipino. Here's a pic:
  19. Hi guys this is around my 20th week of using differin and around 10 weeks of using benzac. For the past 2 weeks, I had almost clear face. I mean no major acne outbreak. This week I have 3 cysts. BIG CYSTS. I hate them so much. I have no idea how they come up on my face. It is so annoying. I was happy and now I am panic. Wondering if there is going to be more tomorrow. I can't tolerate the feeling of cleaning my face and it hurts so bad. For a while, I have hope and it was vanished by cysts that I can't find the root of it. I hope benzac take care of them as soon as possible. I want to be happy again. Happiness without panic and nightmare.

  21. What do you think to be better and why? On me, I know that popping some spots on my face leads to spreading, whereas other times the spot has gone and not returned. I know it’s not just me who wants to weigh out the pros and cons.
  22. Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone wants to join a diet accountability group. I've had acne since I was 13 and found out several months ago that my poor diet is the cause. I had a change in diet but I've gone back to eating junk and my skin is getting really bad. Anyone want to hold each other accountable? I'm so done with acne, lol. Hope everyone is having a good day.
