  1. Bumps/pimples on forehead

    Forums General acne discussion 2 replies

    Hi, maybe someone has similar problems or could give me an advice. I don’t know what to do, these small bumps and red pimples appear on my forehead. My skin is normal, little to the oily side. I eat healthy, wash my face twice a week, use noreva acnomega cream and exfoliac foaming gel. Maybe some of you know natural masks, etc. that could help me get clear skin, or maybe these pimples/small bumps appear only because of my hormones, because i am 17 years old and I just cant do nothing about it?.. any kind of response would be nice.
  2. Does peanut butter cause acne?

    Forums General acne discussion 6 replies

    Hey guys, so all my life I have been eating processed peanut butter, and I know this is a big cause of my breakouts of acne. I have recently found some cool facts about organic peanut butter, and I wanted to share a video I made about this with u guys, cheers!
  3. My acne was never this bad until I went to sleep at my cousins house two months back. I’ve tried honey and lemon and all other things. Can someone please help me fix my skin to back how it used to be??
  4. Hi. I have dealt with acne forever. I can't really remember what my acne was like in my teen years pre pill but I don't remember it being as bad as dealing with it while on the pill. After a year on the pill and poor eating habits I saw a dermatologist who did facial treatments on me such as Derma and light therapy. A year later the treatments have helped tremendously.. to this point my about two years into the pill. I got so clear at one point. I have been on BC since 2-3 years at this point and started face treatment a yearish into BC. I'm unsure if it was the pill or BC that cleared my skin. But my derma quit her job and ever since my skins gotten worse it was perfection at one point and my diet wasn't even that great. Now I'm eating so well, no diary be refined sugars so it's strange I'm breaking out. I keep producing oil around my chin and cheeks. Also, I originally went on BC to regulate my periods. Again, I don't remember my skin pre BC but a year into the BC and before seeing my dermatologist, my skin was the worst it's ever been!!! I just wanna know if I'm guaranteed to get worsened acne when come off it. At the moment skins pre bad but not as bad as pre facial treatment and 1 year into pill I'm about 3 years into pill now and haven't done facials for like 8 months - gets worse slowly. I once when off it in the middle of the pack for two weeks but when I got off had been eating well and good skin then all of a sudden I was eating very very badly like 3000+ calories of junk of daily as a result of being on a restrictive ridiculous low cal diet. Then when I went back on I didn't follow correct instead I carried on and took the pill that I was would be even up to had I not stopped. When I stopped I took doxy which dried my skin so bad. I'm rambling I'm just head on certain my skin will worsen. Bc should stop oil production instead it doesn't. Again I can feel remember my skin pre bc. I'm taking it purely for regularion reasons but wanna get off it because I'm tired of putting fake hormones into my body. Advice? I've tried ocm, salycic acid, differin, antibiotics etc. And nothing helps!
  5. Hey guys, I am currently SOOO frustrated. Here is some background: I never used to have acne not even as a teenager, im talking not even one pimpleeee (knock on wood). I had a pretty bad diet in college and I STILL didnt break out. I never even thought about acne lol I used to be happy haha Anyway, I started law school this year and idk if it's the stress or what not, I BREAK OUT LIKE CRAZY on my cheeks and chin. like my skin is so bumpy and frustrated. It is dry and flaky and large pores. It is just bad. I wash my makeup off every single night with Almond Oil and then use a gentle cleanser morning and night. I make sure every bit of makeup is off my face before I sleep. I would moisturize every day as well (I have dry skin). I used ACV vinegar for a while, seemed to work a little but not enough so I switched into witch hazel (the Dickinson one) and that didnt have bad or good effects on my skin. I was still breaking out (everyday I would wake up with a new bump). I used witch hazel for about a month, did nothing so I switched into ACV toner (diluted of course). I thought it was gonna be fine since I used it before with no purging. BUT after 1 night of using it, I got like 10 new pimples on my cheeks AND I didnt change anything up... I am frustrated. Am I purging? I also used this before with no purging...I am confused and frustrated...
  6. When beginning ones conscious choice to make a big life change, there are many things you need to consider. A big factor in me making the decision to change my skin for the better, and seeing results, required a few big changes. A very overlooked side to the causes of acne would, hands down, have to be diet. Growing up, my mom had always warned me against certain skin destructive foods. At one point I actively began to rebel against what she was telling me mainly because I think I was embarrassed that others were seeing negative changes in my skin. A lot of foods she was telling me to avoid were simple cuts and could have spared me 1. A lot of money, 2. A lot of embarrassment. The first thing that is super important when trying to maintain clear or less bacterial breakout prone skin would be a regular consumption of water throughout the day and especially after working out. Something else to look out for as far as diet goes would be things that you know cause inflammation or redness on your own complexion. For me those foods were: dairy & lactose, milk chocolate, super sugary foods, and really high fat or highly caffeinated fruits and veggies. After swapping out my yummy iced white mochas for a simple almond milk latte, a milk chocolate lava cake for a small piece of dark chocolate, and being more mindful about consuming larger portions of both fruits and veggies, within a few weeks I was able to see wonderful results in both my skin and overall energy level. Another simple beverage swap would be cutting out soda and sugary drinks completely. If you are really craving something other than water when out at a restaurant try something like iced tea which contains less dye, sugars, and potential negative health effects. If are someone who more enjoys the carbonated aspect of soda try something such as La Croix, San Pellegrino, or a generic club soda. Being a super huge coffee fan, I found it hard to cut out caffeine completely so instead opted to drink just one 16 oz. homemade iced almond milk latte on weekdays before school. This helped me get through the day while also saving money on sugary and expensive Dutch Bros. drinks (I still really miss those). Once you really get over that bad caffeine difficiency headache, the cut of all those toxins will really start to clear up your skin. Remember, aspirin is your friend. Completely depriving yourself of the foods and beverages you love is never good, instead use these cravings as a reward to your body and make sure to remember that moderation is key.
  7. Usually my skin is pretty clear but recently on my chin a bumb formed. It was one of those under the skin pimples that developed on my chin and it was my first time getting one, before that I only got white heads. It was tender to the touch and kind of big, but it was the same colour as my normal skin tone so it wasn't that noticeable. However the feeling of it annoyed the crap out of me and i wasn't sure how long it would take for it to go away on its own. So I tried to pop it (I know, bad idea) before it came to a head, nothing came out and the skin was much more sensitive and became more irritated. The next day the pimple turned dark brown although there is no scab, it's still sore when I touch it. Currently it's big and dark, is there any way to lighten it?
  8. I´m on accutane and have taken 300 pills of 20mg. Early on, I experienced getting many tiny, small bumps on my forehead and I dont know why... See my pictures. What are they and will they ever go away? I´ve never had this before and sometimes it´s itchy and red. Kind of looks like small blackheads, but they never disappear.. Also, I just get them in the centre/middle, not the whole forehead. It is driving me crazy and I dont understand why I´m having them since my forehead´s never been my problem-area... And one more thing, this is my second round of accutane, and this was NOT something is had my first time around.
  9. Need Help- PLEASE

    Forums Oily skin

    My acne was very light at first but I wanted to perfect my skin (BIG MISTAKE- don’t fix what isn’t broken). So I went to a dermatologist and she gave me clindamycin which only ended up drying my face and causing for it to get rough. After I stopped using it, I started to only rub soap on my face a few months later (big mistake personally). The weather has been really dry and after going to sleep over at a friends house my acne has incredibly worsened. Can someone help me and tell me if there will be any scarring, how to get rid of it, will this acne continue to grow in these places? And most importantly can someone tell me if there is a regimen to follow and if my skin can heal and go back to how it used to be.sorry I can’t upload many pics. First pic is current, 2nd pic is a week before clindamycin (3 months)
  10. Hello everyone after some years pimples are Goan not completely but it's Goan and after that some holes Created in face I'm 19 year old so anyone have personal experience Some one told me that it's fill naturally itself and some one told me that its cannot filled
  11. Hi everyone. I have been suffering from acne as long as I can remember.. literally. Back in elementary school is when it started and when it ruined my life. I was made fun of on a daily basis for it and quickly became super insecure and I still am to this day (I am now 27 years old). I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of my acne and NOTHING helps. Does this look like cystic acne? Maybe that’s why over the counter products are not working? I’m not familiar wirh cystic acne, so I don’t know. I just know I need help. Please! Any advice, input, insight. Also, are these icepick scars? How can I get rid of them?
  12. Hi everyone, My name is Alberto, I am 43. Since Nov. 2017 I have been suffering from redness in my face and back (When I mean red, is RED..), sometimes with pimples and always very dry. The situation typically get worsened by showers, exercise (sweat).. sometimes direct exposure to the sun. See my picture of the back.. I am not showing my face but it was the same !!!! Before New Year's eve I decided to pay a first visit to a dermatologist (First time ever), and she said: - It seems to be dryness of the skin. Use Cetaphyl lotion mornings and nights and if after 2 weeks nothing happens, let me know. After 2 weeks, nothing happened. Same situation. Called back the Dr. and after careful review of face and back, she said: - It seems to be a reaction from the soap/shampoo you use. Stop using any soaps or shampoo for 2 weeks, just shower with warm water for 5 minutes and then apply Cetaphyl. Also stop using dryer sheets (I was using them) as they could be strong for people with delicate skin. After 2 weeks, nothing happened and I decided to change Dr. and followed a recommendation of a colleague at work, that suffers from light Rosacea. The new Dr. said that most probably, and after all the trial and error from the previous Dr. my problem was related to bacteria coming from my scalp (Folliculitis), landing in my face and back while showering. He also said that my face was getting a lot of bacteria from my pillow (coming from my scalp). I had serious doubts about this theory, but he proved me wrong. He prescribed Metronidazol for the face, to be used morning and afternoon, after washing my face WITH SOAP !! (my first surprise). And also recommended a shampoo/body wash with antibacterial properties to prevent my scalp bacteria to land in my face and back. I truly believe this was the real change in my case. He recommended a product called CLN Body Wash.. is super hard to find (no pharmacies, supermarkets, etc) and is a little expensive but I can tell you, is great (So far) If any of you in this forum is experiencing similar symptoms give this product a try, I buy them on their own brand amazon store (best price so far). Hopefully the links work: Body Wash, Shampoo, Face cleaner BE AWARE: Dr. Lee told me that they will try to sell you the 3 of them (very expensive), however you can use the Body Wash for your scalp also so you save that money. I am doing it and works ! Is anyone here using Metronidazole? CLN? any feedback? I am new to this and want to make sure none of these products are bad in the long term. Appreciated the reading and feedback
  13. I dont know how to start, i feel like shit. I did a 6 month accutane course of 20 mg per day, i was really confused when my derm told me not to keep taking accutane because '' your face is great now, you dont need to keep taking these pills''. But i dont reached the accumulative dose. Now like a month without any pill my acne is coming back it started at my nose where i get 3 pimples in a night, today i woke up with a pimple forming on my cheek. Before starting accutane i was coming out of a depression and while i was on that fucking pills my depression comeback but i didnt told my derm, i also have body dismorphia so im always unhappy with my appearance. I feel so damn broken right now i just cant handle how i feel with myself, ive been strong for 6 months i just cant keep. I have some epiduo left so im aplying it at my pimples i dont know what can i do right now.
  14. So, i finished Accutane , i did 20 mg for 6 months and i finished my course like 1 month ago. My derm gave me 8% glycolic acid gel (its just glycolic acid , nothing more) and after aplying it like a week in my face , including my nose , i noticed some tiny red pimples forming on my nose. Its acne coming back? I have fear
  15. Hi, I’m new to this forum please excuse my English as I’m not very fluent and so sorry for the lo g post. I came here looking for a solution, I honestly have no idea what is happening or what to do anymore. I’m a 37 year old female with acne prone skin all my life. It’s always ranging from mild - moderate. Whenever it gets any worse than that I would always run to the derm. Last year early July it got really bad that I went to the derm and did all sorts of treatments every week. By mid August my face was clearer than ever and it stayed that way until January! But then by the end of January I noticed a Whitehead on my lip line. The next day another one appeared. The day after that a pimple on my nose, next day forehead, more and more appear every single morning I would wake up to 1-4 new pimples on my face!!! I went to the derm right after the second pimple btw, as I was so scared it might spread, and yet... here they are. I started doing the treatments every week again as I did in July, but none works. I would get a facial / diamond peel and get 4 new pimples at night, and another 2 the next morning. I don’t know if what I’m writing makes sense at all. I even get very emotional writing this I know I probably don’t make any sense. The Whiteheads on my lip line continue to appear as the pimples on my face keep popping up everywhere! My derm isn’t helping anymore. Please help me!!!
  16. Hi there. So, this is an awkward question, but I don't want to freak out before seeing a doctor/specialist... I have mild acne on my face, and the very occasional pimple on my back. However, recently, I have developed a pimple in my genital area (I'm a girl). It is also itchy, but I KNOW it has nothing to do with an STI (had same partner) and it looks exactly like a face pimple, but just down there (gross). I don't know what caused it; never had it before, or one so big. Acne on my face is genetic, and I'm treating it topically as prescribed by my dermatologist. It is caused by hormones. But can genital acne be caused by something else? I read online it can be caused by chaffing, wearing tight pants, not washing the area thoroughly, etc. Did anyone else, male or female, ever encounter such a thing and should I be worried? Thanks!
  17. Hi everyone It has been a while that I haven't updated my new entry. So, my acne is still coming up on left cheek close to my mouth and two big cyst on my forehead. One in the centre and another one on my right. Before this there were 3 cyst on my forehead and a fews on my both left and right cheeks. All of them left red scars on my face. It makes me feel unhappy. I am losing my confidence. I don't know how does it come up or what causes it. I did apply benzac overnight and on the spot but lately it works less than excellent. Acne does not subsize as fast as it should. It begin to get red and dry then it comes up and left scar. It takes almost 2 or 3 weeks for me to elimiate a cyst. Very curious what happens.
  18. Dear all, This is a proof that you DON'T have to undergo Accutane and listen to your dermatologist suggestions! There is always a solution for you, easier safer, less costly and perhaps more effective in the long run!! When my skin was at its worst the dermatologist said I wont get clear skin unless I choose Accutane!! I was against taking pills!! And I undertook this challenge (finding a solution that works other than pills) and should say I succeeded!! I wanted to share my solution for acne that worked for me and hopefully will work for all of you! My skin condition: oily, super duper sensitive, acne-prone. Brief history: developed acne since 19, got worse at 23. I started regimin on 2014 then stopped at 2015 it was too irritating, experimeted since 2016 and finally got a solution now in 2018 at age of 24. What I learnt from my trials and errors is that you should: 1) believe in yourself, you can fight acne no matter what others say, and its not your fault that u have it, so stop blaming yourself! 2) every skin is unique, its all about trial and error, you learn within time, so be persistent and note what works for you 3) Patience!!!!! Be patient!!! Patience is a key to any success!! It will work just stick to a routine that suits ur face and it will work!! Never give up!! 4) Little is more!! The so called 10 step Korean skin care = no way!! That's too much + time consuming + expensive + will probably irritate ur skin even mor. 5) "You are what you eat"! Try substituting milk with soyamilk! I think this helped reduce my acne too! As to sugar I saw no difference whether I consumed it or Not, acne was still forming! I still eat cheese though. You should Experiment and see what works for u! As to junk food, duh!! eat it and enjoy of course try eating healthy but don't over do it! I think food in general is not a huge determinant of acne as I ate healthy and non healthy , and seriously there was no impact at all on my skin!! Acne were still forming either way! But it MAY have a small effect so u should see for yourself by cutting out some stuff and I recommend substituting milk with soyamilk as a start. Anyways moving on to what ACTUALLY worked for me is the following: @Morning: 1) cleanse with cleanser (I tried cleansers from clean & clear, garnier, innisfree, the faces shop, cetaphill, .... list goes on,, & realized the simplest cleanser was it was the best it did what it had to do JUST CLEANSE the face , no more no less!! 2) moisturize (hydrate), with Wishtrend Vitamin 75 maximizing cream!! THIS is the besttttt for sensitive oily, acne prone skin!! (dry skin people can also use it but in larger amount) As it helps hydrate while it has some anti aging and brightening properties which u can use in the morning + its not oily/sticky!! moisturizer irritated me, and I tried many other moisturizers they were either to overwhelming for my skin or irritating!! Finally I found this cream that has multiple benefits! 3) Optional step ( after step 2, wait 5 minutes then use benzoyl peroxide as SPOT TREATMENT only!!!! Don't slather it on ur whole face! Its too drying and too irritating!! Take a cotton swab and dab it directly on ACTIVE ACNE ONLY!! If ur spots are not inflamed then leave them alone. NOTE: TRY ur best not to touch your face!! Please stop touching your face. @NIGHT (magical/miracle ingredient) 1) cleanse face using same cleanser 2)cut a lemon in half!! Take the lemon and rub it on your face avoiding eye area!! Or u can squeeze the lemon and apply it with your fingers or cotton!! Let the lemon dry and DON'T WASH it off!! Sleep with it!! THATS IT!! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy !!! Once you wake up, you cleanse ur face and follow with the morning routine again... and so on!!! DO THIS EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!! Try making it your life daily routine! the lemon may sting but believe me it wont erode your skin!! Rather its a chemical exfoliator that is gentler than any other exfoliator and it will help remove black heads, white heads, control sebum, remove dead skin, and calm active acne and block new ones from forming, it will also lighten your scars CONSIDERABLY and brighten your overall complexion within consistent use over time!! BTW I tried vitamin c serums from wishtrend and klairs but they went bad quickly and caused me a lot of black heads! That's how I came up with the idea of using raw lemon at night only and it worked! It took me 3 months to see the effect of lemon and the result was unbelievable!! Guys Save your money!! Rather than purchasing billion products that don't even work! try buying lemons, store them in fridge use it every night, 1 slice of lemon can be used twice or 3 times, don't throw it away unless you feel no juice is left!! Its fresh, natural, filled with vitamin C, antiseptic and other miracle properties god know what! It will sting first but don't worry! It will work!! (Magical multipurpose product)) Also, here is another secret tip! BONUS 1: if you want to remove dead skin, smoothen, brighten and calm your skin, Use this mask recepie after cleansing at NIGHT once every 2 weeks: Mix : (1 egg white, half a lemon, half tsp of raw honey ) in a bowl, take a cotton sheet mask or even tissue paper and dip it in the bowl then stick it on your face to create a mask. Wait for 40 - 60 minutes , once its dry and hard, peel the sheet mask or tissue mask off and youl see all the gunk, dead skin, ,blackheads off ur face. then wash your face with water only, then follow with the moisturizer I mentioned above. BONUS 2: After popping a pimple, (I know you wont leave them alone but seriously try to not touch) Apply the acne patch by cosrx!! Its the best as it absorbs all nasty things under skin after it is popped and reduces the appearance of dark scars. ........... And now What???? Well, Experiment and try this for urself, modify if u need as long as it works for ur skin stick with it (Be Patient and Consistent) !! I hope my solution works for you and if it did please share your experience!! Well remember its not that I don't get acne now, its just that I managed to keep it 95% under control and achieve a clearer skin! You are beautiful regardless Use this discount code if you purchase from the website Cosmetic Love: All the best!!
  19. Hi!!! I was recently on Lo Loestrin Fe for about 3 years for really bad cramps which worked for a little. I went off it about 5 weeks ago because I was getting really bad cramps again, irregular long periods, my period every two weeks, and it was giving me bad acne. I just switched to Altavera 5 weeks ago (generic of Nordette, other names are Portia & levora.) The first month my skin was doing about the same but just looked like a healthier complexion. The placebo pill week and week of getting my period my skin looked great and I was so happy. This first week on the second month my acne really flared up. Is this normal? Is it just fluctuating? I’m super scared it’s going to make it worse. My mom took nordette when she was younger and she said she loved it which is why I went on it. Someone give me hope that this initial breakout in the second month is normal!!!
  20. I have mild to moderate acne, nothing horrendous but enough to bother me and cause a lot of anxiety. I suffer from a great deal of self hatred, and even the smallest amount of redness or unevenness (bumps) cause me to become depressed and to tear myself apart. I cleanse daily, (double cleanse around my period), spray my face with witch hazel (a natural toner) and moisture every day. I use a medicated exfoliater (dermatologists prescription) and I am currently on Minocycline to help clear up my skin. I’m vegan (5 yrs) I eat extremely well, exercise daily and have very little artificial sugar in my diet. I don’t wear make up and only take warm showers, never hot. When I have bumps I put bepantham on them, which seems to help with redness and swelling a lot. I use a kaolin clay mask to soak up excess oil. Is there anything else I can do to help? Will a contraceptive pill help?
  21. I am 15 now and i have been doing the regimen for about over a year. When i started the regimen i barely had mild acne and i was over reacting and i was really happy about doing this because it guaranteed success but now my acne is even worse and i don't know what went wrong. Acne has basically ruined my life. It gave me bdd and i am very self conscious and insecure because of it now. I am a very out going and funny person but because of my acne i feel as if i have become more introverted and shy. I have missed out on so much in my life because of my acne. My mom and friends tease me about it all the time and i am the only one in my family with this kind of acne. I really need help and i need good advice on what to do with my face. Should i go see a dermatologist? someone pls help thanks.

  23. Hello everyone! This is a thread for masturbation acne. You can use this forum to post your no fap streak count to help motivate you post your thoughts on this matter So i have had a painful history with acne. i started getting it when i was 14. started masturbating at 13ish. have been basically an addict. Like most people I can't keep a streak of no fap for longer than a couple of weeks. usually if i try i end up failing and relapsing and i've just been stuck in this same stupid cycle. and i was feeling pretty depressed about how much life has gone down ever since masturbating. I used to be so much more confident, didn't mind making jokes, could look people in the face but acne has destroyed everything. You can't ignore acne when it's itchy red and everywhere on ur face and hurts when u touch. it's just not normal! i know why it happens. I know for some people masturbation does not affect acne but for me and many people, it does. i know it has an effect. the doctors always say it's just a myth and when i used to google it, most of the results i got said masturbation and acne are not related at all. so that would convince me it was ok to keep the habit. But recently more and more threads from 2016-2017 have started to acknowledge the correlation. people are noticing.. For me i know cause i have tried tons of products and none worked. i went to a derm and doxy worked after a few months but once i came off it acne came back. be careful guys when you come off an early pill. everything might seem ok with your skin but your acne can come back. the only reason why i get acne is bcuz mb. i have tried everything else Now for the people who think this idea is ridiculous, masturbation and acne don't affect EVERYONE ok. I look around at my school and hardly anyone has acne and i know most people masturbate. So my point is some people have this condition. masturbation doesn't necessarily cause it but if you have acne it's gonna worsen it for sure. They say your acne goes away after teens. i'm afraid that if i keep masturbating i'm gonna keep getting acne even into my 20s. The reason masturbation triggers acne is because when you masturbate or even look at porn, you release a ton of hormones, mainly testosterone and DHT. We know that hormones especially in teens are present in high amounts and cause acne. this imbalance will cause your hormone levels to go out of whack. your testosterone levels skyrocket. If you masturbate everyday, and wondering why you are getting acne well that's why. What other reason would you just randomly get acne. imean everyone gets acne at some point tru, but if u have bad or cystic acne and you have tried everything, all the creams like i did and medicine and are still frustrated and don't know what to do please try this. plus why should you have to deal with this disease. do you really want to have temporary satisfaction and be an addict waste time looking at a screen. if you think masturbation acne is real for you, then you MUST CHOOSE btwn good face or good orgasm. Today i choose good face and confidence. don't subject yourself to this emotional pain just for some pleasure. How do you not masturbate? Don't look at any porn or images that will turn u on! the moment you do you will get horny relapse again. trust me u be to take your mind completely off it. remember ask yourself: good face and be able to talk to girls orrr bad face and good orgasm?? find something productive to do. always try to be busy with sports and school. if u in private and horny then go to public space. i'm day 4. in gonna prove to myself i'm strong. i'm gonna stop masturbating if i can. i'm gonna think about my face and the devastation of acne. i will defeat this problem and you can too!! Gluck guys and girls!!!:) If you feel that masturbation acne is real then leave a comment. what do you guys think still don't believe me? just google no fap acne reddit and check out these links for masturbation acne threads
  24. Good day to you! I would like to seek some help and suggestions about these scars, or dark marks. They started with small bumps and pimples but i cannot stop my self from picking them until they become scars and when they become scars, i will pick them again until they form bigger scars. and here’s the result. some of them got lighter by themselves through time but i have bigger new ones and they look awful. can someone suggest me what to do to clear them (the new and old scars)? i am trying to use roseheep seed oil for a month for my older scars but it doesn’t seem effective for me. and when i use tretinoin, my face becomes itchy and red AF! any other products that i can use to clear them as fast as possible? please help me.
  25. I went to the dermatologist because i had moderate acne all on my cheeks and some on my forehead and chin. I’m 16 so it must be hormonal. I was prescribed solodyn 80 mg and given a epiduo topical cream. I cleanse and moisturize with cera ve products; the daily wash and the moiusturizer. I have been doing this for a month now and i don’t see any improvements. A few days ago i broke out with a bunch of cysts and I don’t know if I’m not using it long enough to see the effects but i never had this many cysts on my cheeks and I’m very confused. The only good thing is that my forehead and chin area have ten relatively smooth except for a cyst that popped up on my forehead yesterday. This acne has taken a toll on me. I’ve had it for a few years now but i feel like it’s just keeps getting worse. If anyone can let me know what I should do. :)))
