  1. Thank you so much for your post, it has given me hope! I have your very same scarring post a horrible break up last year. Accutane cleared me up but I now feel very self conscious about my scarring even though I know it's not as bad as some people have it. Can I ask you with how much frequency did you have your chemical peels? Thank you again!
  2. I also used to have acne concentrated only on my chin and forehead, NEVER on my cheeks, and since the regimen I have cystic pimples everywhere and I'm really scared they might leave scars It's been a week since I've changed my diet (no sugar and no dairy) and have lowered the amount of bp until I see my derm on friday. I really don't want to go on accutante, but I'm 27 and have been battling acne for as long as I can remember and I've just had it!
  3. I'm on my 2nd month as well, and not only have I not stopped breaking out but my acne is worse than it has ever been and in places where I've never had it before. I'm seeing my derm next week to ask her for accutane. I'm really tired of it all!
  4. I too have a diiferent skin tone now, and I'm worried it might be permanent. I'm on my 5th week, will it go back to normal? I like my pale skin
  5. It kind of looks like seborrheic dermatitis, google some pictures to see if it matches,
  6. So, I cut out all dairy from my diet (milk, cheese, cream, ice-cream, etc...) because of its relationship with acne and other health issues, and was wondering if it was ok to eat fermented dairy products such as yogurt, kefir or ricotta? I also began cooking with butter instead of olive oil, as I read it's much healthier to cook with saturated fats. Will this have any impact on my skin? Thank you in advance!
  7. Wow! I was also born premature and my mother smoked during her pregnancy
  8. Firts of all, bear in mind that none of us are doctors, but since you mentioned not getting acne when you suppressed your period, I thought that it might be hormone related, I mean, all acne is hormonal, but in your case it may not be related to your diet, that's why I suggested getting on birth control pill since it suppresses your period, but as I mentioned before, it also has many side effects. Here's a good thread about hormonal acne: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/HORMONAL-Acne-Reading-t
  9. Why would you want to get rid of your period? That would mean you're underweight and sick and you're risking having permanent damage done! Have you had your homone levels checked? Have you discarded PCOS? If that's the problem, maybe you should try to get on the pill as it tricks your body into thinking you're pregnant and you never actually get a "real period", but be very aware of the side effects when getting on it and getting off it. I think there are some natural alternatives like saw palm
  10. "Stress is an emotion – it’s fear. Chronic stress cause your adrenal glands to produce the steroid hormone cortisol. Cortisol is good in small amounts, but if there’s too much of it in the blood stream for too long, it suppresses the immune system, adds to blood sugar problems, and further harms your digestive activities". Maybe that's why diet and exercise seems to have stopped working for you?
  11. That depends wether your acne is a reaction of your skin to fluoride. Have a look at this: http://www.celluliteinvestigation.com/2009...looks-like.html Good luck!
  12. Please, take a look at this and see if it applies to you: http://www.drbaileyskincare.com/blog/pityr...80%99t-go-away/ http://www.drbaileyskincare.com/blog/pityr...dont-know-this/ At least, it did apply to me and the "million gazillion deep little braille-like whitehead that never healed or went away" finally disappeared in just two weeks, because it was not acne to begin with, but fungus! But apparently all the useless derms I'd seen in my life weren't able to figure that out.
  13. I'm sorry you are having such a hard time! You mentioned being clear for several years when you changed your diet and started working out, so something must have changed since then for you to start breaking out again. Acne is usually an external symptom of something going on internally. With that being said, have you mande any changes in your diet? Or maybe losing your job made you feel really stressed? Have you started taking any prescription medicine? Have you discarded PCOS? I think you nee
  14. Your skin knows how to take care of itself, you just need to be patient. Besides, if it's just one single pimple, why risk scarring when you can wait for a couple of days for it to dry out by itself?
  15. I think this thread might help you: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/rid-bacne-t107656.html Good luck!
