  1. where did you go?

      Acne scars

      I would leave them alone, they are not noticeable, please believe me.

      Am I pretty? Acne scars :((((((Photos)

      I don't think it looks so bad, I think it is at a level that doesn't detract from your looks. How old are you?
    3. Thanks for making this thread. On the other hand it has made me realise I don't think this kinda treatment is for me, I think I will have to live with what I have.

      How bad is my skin

      It is very minimal (if there is something), I can't see anything there.
    5. Reminds me of myself. And I would encourage you to talk about your feelings to people you trust (or even a counsellor), because a lot of that bullying can turn you into a real social recluse, I am evidence of that. I also remember a lot of the stuff in school, it was really traumatic at the time, and I never really got over it.
    6. No I don't, I do blame the doctors around me who let my face become the craterfest that it is today. It's very easy for them to say it isn't a big deal, but to underplay the various psychological trauma that goes with facial disfigurement is something I hope would change.
    7. If you trust him you should talk to him about it. I guess it's hard, but coming from someone who is very far down the road in being an acne sufferer, anxiety that gets kept inside grows into something much worse, and usually manifests itself in another way in the future. If you are not ready to open up about it, then just tell him that and ask him to be patient. He should be understanding and not pressure you either.
    8. Wow, haven't been on here a while. I have really bad pores (especially on my nose) and I'm wondering if there have been any developments in it's treatment in terms of topicals, or minor operations. I think using pore strips and things like that really do not help, and I recommend everyone to not use them, or to use too many "pore cleansing" products on their skin.

      Warning Level

      Ror a second there it looked like I had got another +1 warning as thats what it said in the notification! Thanks for the -1
    10. I noticed I have a warning from 2009. I don't even know what it was, or was notified about it. Is it possible for it to get deleted, as it was so long ago? Thanks
    11. I don't think topicals will help you, are you taking or have you taken any antibiotics?
    12. whatcha taking for your skin? i spent my whole teenage years obsessing in the mirror, id hold a mirror by the window every morning before school, at the exact right angle to make it look as bad as it possibly could so i know what people were seeing... that really didn't help, if you ever feel like not going out because of acne, then ignore that feeling. too many times i wasted my teenage years hiding away. when you get to my age (even though I have really bad scarring now) you regret those ti

      Need Help Asap (Pictures)

      TBH what you have is very mild, I even think it is i the wrong forum subsection. I don't think topicals will help your situation, maybe try some oral prescriptions form your doctor.
