    Female Chest - Pus Deep In Pores

    I get a little bit of that on my chin. I've not heard of having it so deep, but that doesn't mean it isn't common. Try using an AHA or BHA cream after you shower. These are acids that increase cell turnover to shed your skin faster than it normally comes off. Your pores are clogged and they need clearing - using these might help. You could also try a chemical peel. You can do these at home by yourself; they sell products and kits online for doing it solo, but be careful. You can burn yourse
  2. Try tea tree oil or something with that in it. If it's really bad, go to a doctor. You don't even have to go to a dermatologist - your general practitioner can prescribe things to you. Also consider that it might be folliculitis and not acne - in which case acne treatments won't help. One thing I did last year that really helped my cystic back acne (why I'm not doing it now, I have no idea; I must be an idiot) is to alternate days of washing with BPO and washing with pyrithione zinc. BP

    I'm Living In A Nightmare I Can't Get Out Of.

    You may have a yeast problem, like Tristen suggests. It might be folliculitis (which is fungal, not bacterial) and not acne. Definitely go to a doctor - a real one. I know dermatologists seem like they never listen and they rush you in and out, but there has to be one who will really try to come up with something for you. Shop around for a good one. If you don't want to go to a doctor, there are good products out there. Neutrogena is crap; not sure if you tried it or not. AcneFree actually w

    This stuff is the shizz. It absorbs quickly, it smells nice, and it's the only thing that's ever successfully controlled my back and chest acne. It works fast and it comes in a huge bottle. A little goes a long way, so it lasts. Highly recommended. I wish it were a little stronger. I hope anyone suffering with chest and back acne tries this.
  5. I haven't. I do use her Weightless Body Lotion, though, for my back and chest, and it works really well. I've used a couple of her products and I think they're pretty effective and not very expensive. Did you end up getting it? How's it working?
  6. So in my last entry, I had stopped using the Paula's Choice BHA weightless body lotion because I went away for a week and didn't bring it with me. I broke out all over my back and had to start using PanOxyl 10% benzoyl peroxide bar soap on my back. I alternated days between using that and using a pyrithione zinc bar soap I bought on Amazon. So one day I'd use the BPO bar, then the next day the zinc bar, and so on. This worked REALLY well on my back. My back stayed super clear. My chest stil
  7. Well, I stopped using Paula's Choice because one day, I was in a hurry, then I became lazy, and my skin was clear, so why not? Then I went to visit relatives up north over Xmas, and my back and chest broke out like crazy. Like CRAZY. My face had started breaking out already around October, probably from the horrific summer we had in Central Texas last year. I got that under control using AcneFree, so now I use Cetaphil in the morning to wash, then Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser at night to
  8. Sorry for the long, convoluted title. My back is still clear. I'm super happy. The marks are fading and nothing new is forming, which is helping them fade. When I wash my back and it feels like smooth, normal skin, it makes me wish it were warmer so I could wear strapless shirts again. I have one blemish on my chest now, but I've been using the 12-hour AcneFree BP foam and it's going away. Everything else on my body is being nicely maintained by the routine I've fallen into. I just w
  9. It's hard not to feel self conscious about that, I know. It's even worse when you're a girl. I can tell you that people don't really notice that stuff on men. Your scars will fade with time; in the meantime, your best bet is to just try not to care. Let your skin breathe, wear sunscreen and just say the hell with it. If you really are looking for a solution, try a chemical peel. They're in different strengths and they really are the best thing for scarring.
  10. So with the help of the AcneFree 12 Hour Foam and the Paula's Choice BHA lotion (plus St. Ives green tea body wash), the skin on my back and chest is completely clear. Completely. Of course, I'm breaking out on my face, but I'll take it. I hope it lasts. I want the marks on my back to go away. I hate them. It seems like every time they start to fade, new acne pops up and makes more. Sad Baroo. But it could be worse. I'm glad to be clear, and I hope I can maintain it. I've been really reli
  11. So I've been using St. Ives green tea clear skin body scrub, and it seems to work pretty well if I use it in conjunction with an AHA or a BHA cream afterward. The thing that really seemed to get my back and chest clear, though, was AcneFree's new BPO foam - it's called something like AM treatment or whatever, and it's in a little mousse can. I really like it - it soaks in thoroughly, isn't too drying and is easy to apply. It does work well on my body acne. My chest is completely clear, and I

    tiny 'under the skin bumps'

    I have these, too... just little sprinkles of them on either side of my mouth. You can't really see them except in certain light, but you can feel them, and they're annoying. Yet no one seems to know how to get rid of them... I guess I could try using AHA every day and see how that works. isakendon, maybe you should try that, too. Just make sure you use sunscreen every day after you apply. AHAs do keep your cells turning over and help you shed skin faster. I'm wary of dermatologists... they al

    Not working fast enough.

    The Paula's Choice is still working, but I noticed that if I skip a day, even if I use the Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash, I start to break out again. I was at the pool all weekend for the holiday, and I think the sunscreen, the sun and the chlorine aggravated my skin. I recently bought St. Ives green tea scrub and cleanser for my face, and I fucking LOVE them. They improve my skin almost immediately. So I bought the St. Ives green tea body wash a few days ago and have been using it f
  15. I have the exact same problem. I've always gotten hormonal acne on my chin, but usually one or two, about a week before my period. Now it seems that as soon as one goes away another one pops up... and they never really seem to go away. I was on atralin for a while but it made my face really red, so I stopped using it, and it was around then that my face started to get worse. I wonder if the atralin made things worse than they were... I hope you get some answers; I'd like some myself.
