  1. This is my first post so have patience if I do things wrong. I am a 69 year old male and have had acne problems since I was a teenager. I have seen several dermatologists over the years, none have impressed me, none seemed very interested to be honest. had a course of Roaccutaine about 20 years ago which did work but as soon as the treatment stopped the acne returned. My GP put me on Ant-biotics (Oxytetracycline) which kept me reasonably clear for about 15 years before the Ant-bionics just stopped working. Since then I have just used Acnecide (Benzoyl Peroxide) which has done a reasonable job for about the last 5 years. Recently I decided to grow a beard (big mistake) which made it difficult to use the cream. I have had a massive Acne breakout on my chin / nose and even after shaving off the beard the Acnecide does not appear to have any effect. I have had the breakout about 3 weeks and it seems to be getting worse. To add more complication I have been on Testosterone Replacement Therapy for the last few years which has certainly made the acne worse. I am at a loss now to know what I can do. I don't want to be dramatic but my chin feels almost as thought its alive - large cist type acni that hurt and itch as well as white heads. I am adding a picture and would be grateful for any comments / thoughts about what I should try. Thanks in advance.
  2. I have been on the regimen since March 11th and I'm confused because initially I had bad breakouts on my cheeks. That cleared up very well with the treatment in the first month then I began using AHA+ on April 11th. I loved the results I saw from the AHA as well, but Around April 17th I noticed tiny bumps popping up on only 1 side of my nose and they progressed to both sides and actual nose as the weeks went by. I wasn't sure what was causing it and thought maybe I wasn't cleaning well enough since it was only 1 side at first, but I just stopped using the AHA+ this month (June) just to see if it was the cause. This isn't an area where I normally breakout so I'm not sure what to do. Has anyone else experienced these same bumps around their nose area? What should I do? I'm so self conscious, my birthday is this month and I just want them gone! Early April (Right before breakouts started) The Breakout (Last week, but they are still coming)
  3. Is this a broken capillary on my nose? Thanks for any help.
  4. Hi all! I've come here with a few questions for you and would love any and all input First off, my nose has been red for almost 8 years now (I'm 20) and I'd just like some opinions on it, I've had severe acne since about 13 and it's really taken its toll on my life, my confidence has always been awful, I've struggled to make meaningful relationships with all but a few people, and that's due to going to school with those people, I've recently moved to a new area and although some of my old friends are only a bus ride away, many of them are busy and/or at uni, so I HAVE to make new friends some how but I can't with the way I look and my awful confidence, and romantic relationships have been out of the question for years. Now my acne has cleared up a little (it was quite bad and has left me with quite a scared face) the only thing truly bothering me at the moment is my ridiculously red nose, not only is it huge (I'm not sure if it swollen or not) it's also red, and has been since 12 or 13, anyway if anyone has some suggestions I'd love to hear it (I've attached some photos by the way). The second is my post accutane results and what I'm to do next. I'm not exactly super happy with the results, these photos are just over a week after my last pill (40mg a day for 6 months), my dermatologist was very happy with the outcome but I'm not too thrilled, there's still plenty of redness everywhere and I even still have some deeply inbedded cysts on my left check and my nose, though I haven't had a white head in months which is quite nice. I also would like some information on what I'm to do about scaring, my dermatologist said there isn't much I can do on the NHS which really sucks because I don't have the money for private treatment. What, if anything, would you guys suggest I take as my next actions? Thank you all
  5. Hey everyone. I have had white spots on my face for about 5 years now, I think. When they first started I didn't think much of it, I think they were mainly on my chin, then some on the right side of my nose. The ones on my chin are basically what my face is now, I don't remember my face without them. And I tried for the longest time to not care about them. I've had acne before, not too crazy but stubborn acne. I've never played with them. Never popped them. I never tried to craft some home remedy I wasn't sure about. I just let them be. And I tried to do the same with these white spots for some years now. But It's getting worse and worse. When I squeeze my cheeks, or the place between my brows, or my chin with my hands, there appears even more of them, that I previously couldn'T without squeezing. I went to three dermatologists, one of them said it might e past acne scar, one of them said they might be fat glands, and the last one said he didn't know, and gave me "acnelyse" which sheds skin and "sivex" which is a protective lotion I believe. I'm going to include some old photos and the ones I just took with the phone's flashlight, zoomed in. This one is from June 2016. I know it's low res but the sun makes the spots better visible, as if they already werent. September 2016. Obvious raise in chin & right side of nose. October 2016. Low res again. Now for the photos I just took. Left side of my nose. Note that when my skin is stretched, these spots aren't visible, they don'T even leave a trace when I stretch the skin. they just dissappear. So it's not like acne where it would be more visible when you stretch the skin. Left side 2. My nose also has 3-4 bumps, one of them is very visible, right on the upper side of the mini mole on my nose. Squeezing my cheek. Left side acne & spots. Many on the chin also visible. Right side again. this is where it's worst. Left side photos look worse but right side is actually much much worse irl. Chin. Flash makes them look less by destroying the shadows but they're still visible. Last one, squeezing my chin. I'm a 21 yo male. I've tried the "acnelyse" the third derm gave me and it doesnt seem to do much. Maybe it's my mood bur they definitely feel worse on some days and better on some days. So maybe it's an allergy of some kind? I smoke but thse started long before I started smoking. Only thread I've found with almost the exact spot photos is this: www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/326959-raised-bumps-on-chinhypertrophic-scar/ Some users say they have the same thing but when I search their post history, I find photos that are nothing like mine. Mine have never been red, always whiter. They don't burn or itch, they're just there. They're not squeezable, they're like a part of the skin. My first phost here. I don't know if I've done something wrong. thanks in advance. If you're going to recommend a doctor, I live in Turkey.
  6. I've had hormonal acne on my chin and around nose but never on my nose. Ive done 2 rounds of accutane ro get rid of that and have been clear since. Ive recently been getting breakouts in my nose only, little clusters at a time. Is this acne or could it be something else? I should add that it can get itchy and feels a bit burning sometimes
  7. So I've had this annoying ass dark mark on my nose for a long time and it's exactly at the middle of it... I'm really annoyed about the fact it's not yet gone because it has been there since last year. i think I also have 2 small black heads on my nose which less bother me but I would like to know how to get a treatment for my mark and maybe my black heads. I've been told to use 'Fucidine' but I don't think it helps... Also I need help to confirm my mark is indeed an acne scar mark because I'm not a professional in this subject Here's a picture of my acne mark: Any help is appreciated!!! I heard something called benzoyl peroxide which might help but don't know if I should use it
  8. so I have like red bumpy skin around my nose, sometimes its better sometimes its really bad, but it just looks dry and horrible indeed help, these photos are when its not looking so bad, but sometimes it gets worse
  9. I don't know how many of you heard about the acne no more program(mike Walden). Is it a scam ? Please I want honest reviews about it.
  10. Yesterday out of pure stupidity and negligence i put 100% TCA on my nose thinking this solution isnt that strong (i didnt do research unfortunately) . Now my nose is looking like this. These are the pics taken at around 40 hrs mark after the TCA peel. Within 15 seconds of applying TCA i washed my face with baking soda water after realizing it was a mistake and then applied triple antibiotic cream. Where will this peel wound be after a month or two and what can i expect. I live in a remote area there are no dermatologists nearby. I had ordered 100% TCA via Amazon. I am really depressed now and also angry at myself.
  11. 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?
  12. i've been battling moderate acne since high school, and from that, my nose and t-zone are very scarred with enlarged / dilated pores. until recently this wasn't that big of a deal, as i've gotten over the appearance of them over the years. however, in the last week two of the enlarged pores on my nose tip joined together to form a mega, deep pore, and it's been very distressing to the point that i haven't felt this low since my my early 20s when my face used to be horrible. what's even more distressing is that i'm afraid that the other pores will do the same, and join together, as i get older and they keep getting more dilated. the most demotivating is that i keep a very strict routine of oil cleansing + retin-a (every other night) / finacea + vitamin c + moisturizer + sunscreen. and it took me years to find a routine that doesn't break me out. i have an appointment with my primary doctor this week to get a rx for antidepressants and a referral to a derm. and i have asked beautifulambition for his opinion and he said fully ablative erbium, punch excision, needling, are all potential options. i've been spending the last several days researching the heck out of all of those options, and i'm not swayed by the results i've seen, in fact they're scarring me off and making me feel more discouraged. i wanted to post it here to get a few more opinions. i'm located in Vancouver so if anyone knows of acne scar specialists here i'm open. my search is only turning up a Dr. Moon Choi, who seems to be against ablative lasers (going by his website). i have family in LA, and can travel to Korea as well if there is an expert. i'm very depressed, especially given this area of the face is tricky. but please, any suggestions and opinions are welcome. please note i'm not looking to achieve perfect skin or even anything close, i just want to re-separate the pores, and prevent other pores from joining.. (in the picture below, the joined pore is the big one in the middle.)
  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. Brother has bump on his nose and we can’t figure out what it is. It is sorrounded by blackheads but nothing comes out from the actual bump. We’ve tried squeezing it but nothing happens to it.
  16. Hi my name is Arizona, i’m 17. I’ve had these very tiny (thousands it seems) of bumps on my forehead, around my nose, nose, chin, nose bridge, etc. I’ve tried everything. It looks so horrible, i don’t even take selfies anymore or any pictures close up to my face because it looks bad. it has really lowered my self esteem. I don’t have acne and i don’t get acne: it’s not acne, it’s just bumps. It’s not red white black or any specific color, they don’t hurt, i don’t pick at them, they’re just there. From what i’ve looked up, i found out it’s clogged pores i guess? Before i used to think i had enlarged pores. So i did my research and ended up buying the Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More Cleanser Nettoyant, and i used this clean & clear blackhead eraser with salycilic acid. The Dr. Brandt Pores No More is extremely expensive but i can’t lie and say it’s not worth it. After i use it it makes my skin feel sooooo soft it’s unbelievable and i guess it does help minimize my pores. But the bumps never went away. So i concluded that it’s not the size of my pores. I did more forum reading, and now i know it’s clogged pores, but i want to know what kind of condition it is. Because this is definitely not normal. The only skin problems i have is my dark circles, hyperpigmentation around my mouth, and whitehead’s on my nose and around my mouth. I attached pictures so you can see, and i hope to god that someone identifies exactly what it is. My main question though, is how the hell do i get rid of it!? Seriously it really takes a toll on my self esteem and confidence + it looks terrible. What i he tried so far (that i’ve read online) is Double cleansing, Last elk I just bought a deep sea clay mask, and the biore charcoal cleanser. i also have witch hazel but that’s just for my skin in general. What i’ve seen the most that people say is getting a Clarisonic today that’s like $200 i’d have to hustle for that. And people also say get a dermatologist but who has that kind of money. I would really really like to know what to do to get rid of these bumps. i want these to go away completely, whenever i rub my skin it feels like very very thin sandpaper, mixed with my naturally oily skin. I’d appreciate it thanks! Recommend any product to me, nothing over $60. Any regimen, anything!
  17. I had a cortisone shot done on a nasty cyst on my nose a week ago. In the first 48 hours the pain and swelling was reduced, but not significantly. After that period I could still notice a purple, painless, cyst on my nose, raised right on the top. Its incredibly noticiable and i'm afraid its going to scar into one of those hypotrophic lumpy scars. What should I do? I really want to save money as it costed $130 last time I did it but i don't want redness and hypotrophic scars on my nose for the next 12 months. Please what should I do? I'm exhausted and desperate and I just want relief from this.
  18. Weird Red Marks After BP

    Forums The Acne.org Regimen 1 reply

    So I had only a few pimples to go before I was clear. I used BP for these, and while it did make the pimples go away (in 2 days!) it made the rest of my forehead break out (purging?). They were small and skin colored, something I could easily cover up, but then I noticed these weird marks on my nose. They weren't red and inflamed, more of a pinkish purple. The one in the picture is fading but there is now another bigger one more in the middle of my nose. I don't think they're pimples but I could be wrong? What are they and how do I get rid of them? (Sorry if the picture is a bad quality I had to really play with the size to make it the right size for this post
  19. I'm only 18 yet the pores on my nose are so big and full of blackheads. I feel so conscious whenever I talk to people because they start to stare at my nose. I know this is not as horrible to some people but seeing my nose full of holes just really creeps me out. I have been using a facial cleanser and a toner both containing salicylic acid for about 4 months and although the dark marks and active acne disappeared, my pores however became larger, I feel. I just want to know if there is any method for my pores to become smaller or atleast appear smaller. I really hate looking at the mirror because of my nose. I don't even want to know how my nose would look like in the future with the ageing and the schoolworks and exposure to the sun and stuff. I've become very distant to people because of this. I really don't know what happened. My family has oily skin in general but I'm the only one with a nose like this. Please help :'( I really want a solution for these holes on my nose. egjnfjjnjd!!! Also the texture of my nose is weird? I think? if you look closely it has like wrinkles or something xD
  20. I have this huge black head on my nose that I had for a few years it’s pretty deep and sticks out a bit, recently it’s been bothering me but I didn’t sqeeze it out in fear of creating a pit or scar. What should I do to remove this black head without scarring or creating a pit?
  21. Hello everyone! So I made the mistake of using pore strips on my nose...twice (one week apart). I never used to get acne on my nose and even my blackheads were very minimal, but I wanted that smooth feeling that you get after a pore strip. BAD IDEA. Anyways, the pores on my nose have gotten a LOT bigger the past two weeks and I have so many blackheads. My nose never used to look like this, it's terrible. I tried exfoliating it a lot and yesterday I did a baking soda paste and left it on for a few minutes. I may have also picked at the blackheads a little bit. Then I put lemon on my nose after, then tea tree oil later. I'm trying everything and have seen little improvement. Last night after the baking soda and lemon I noticed my nose developed a bunch of fine lines all over it. Horizontally, vertically, just everywhere. It looks like I have a wrinkly nose. I don't know what to do at this point. I don't know what the lines are from and if they'll ever go away, or if the blackheads on my nose will return to the way they used to be, which was barely noticeable. Any advice on what to do? I was going to try salicylic acid on my nose for the blackheads, but what about these fine lines that have suddenly formed? Any ideas why? Thank you for reading!
  22. I've been battling with acne since I was about 13 years old. I am 18 years old now and For as long as I can remember my skin has never had a smooth texture. At a first glance you really can't tell much. With makeup on in pictures you can notice a few spots here and there and some redness but it doesn't seem like a huge problem. However, my skin has a whole bunch of bumps. Specifically on my forehead, between my eyebrows, chin, and nose. I don't usually break out on my cheeks but there are definitely minors bumps and redness around there as well. For for the most part I eat a healthy diet. Try to stay away from meat. I've cut out dairy completely, and I drink tons of water a day. But it never seems to make any difference. I was my skin twice everyday, see an oil free moisturizer, occasionaly use tea tee oil on active zits me I try to do an exfoliating mask once week. I don't take any supplements besides an everyday multivitamin. My skin on a "good" day is bumpy but no active zits anywhere. I have simply just grown so tired of being insecure about my skin's texture and I really just need some advice. Please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong or if there is anything I should do or add to my routine to get my dream skin! Below are some close ups of my acne. Thank you.
  23. hey so i have two cysts on my nose for quite a while. the first cyst which is on the side of my nose is kind of flat now but just a little higher whereas the second one on my right side more towards the tip is so huge. At first i thought the first one (which is now sorta flat) was a pimple .. that was really stubborn and didn't think anything about it being a cyst (since i've never gotten one before) and picked it with a needle. SO MUCH pus came out and the size has shrunk.. a little. until another one popped up.. ( the second fat one) and it's so huge.. i've had these two for maybe a little over a month sitting on nose .. when they first came i thought it was any other pimple and treated it with the mario badescu drying lotion but i guess it don't really work out because i ended up finding out it was a cyst....... so i looked up what use and got found out i could use neosporin. i had put neosporin on for about maybe a week until i realized was allergic or it and started itching near my nose really bad red started to show. so then i starte using new face wash and moisturizer, check has been helping along with the mario badescu drying face mask.. its going down slowly but honestly i don't think i i see a difference. i also tried swarm compress which has been working a little and tooth paste. PLEASE WHAT ORHER WAYS CAN I SQUISH THIS SUCKER DOWN?!??! it's so embarassing to go to school because i know everyone's looking at it it kills my confiedence so much!!

Now skin will not grow back and I'm not sure what to do! I've been putting turmeric cream and vitamin e on it but it will not work Please Please Help! If anyone needs more details like pictures pls tell me I need your help! This has made me feel so insecure!
