  1. I've had moderate acne for about 2 years now and all this time I've had this little balls of sebum come off of my back and shoulders. I have a ton of blackheads on those ares and they are very difficult to remove so I've left them alone for the most part. I get the occasional pustule on my shoulders but never anything like my face. I've noticed that if I scratch my shoulder or back I get all these sebum balls under my fingernails. I'm really confused how I have all these blocked pores on my back
  2. lol I tried this for a day and started breaking out a lot only one day into it. Kind of weird since I hadn't been using any harsh chemicals beforehand. Damn this acne sucks i've just about given up.
  3. weird I just got one of those on my chin this morning. For me it depends where the bump is. If it's on my chin like this one then it will go away quickly. But I've had them on my temples before and they take like a month to go away. My guess is that it just gets broken down by the body over time and finds another path out of the body.
  4. I've never been on any kind of oral medicine or antibiotic. Right now I'm on the bandwagon with DiasyMai and supplementing, exercising, and keeping my diet clean. The bumps have decreased in size and number somewhat since I started so I'm hoping what I'm doing is helping.
  5. i've tried cider vinegar but haven't had much luck. I'll definitely give this a try.
  6. Accutane seems a bit risky to me also. I've actually started seeing commercials from law firms trying to reach the public if they've had accutane side affects, that they may be entitled to a settlement or something. The scary thing about accutane is that some of the very serious problems may not show up until later in your life. I prefer not to risk getting crippling arthritis or losing my vision thanks.
  7. IMO, there is no cure-all for acne. Some treatments will work with some people, and not at all for others. You can try it although I haven't had success with it. good luck.
  8. well, where to begin. Acne invited itself into my life when I was of the ripe age of 14. It's funny, I remember watching TV commercials when I was 13 or so about blackhead cleansers and thinking, wow I'm glad I don't have to worry about that. Unbeknownst to me I would be privileged with a face full of acne for the next 3 years (maybe more?). The spot where acne plagued me the most initially were my upper lip and forehead. The acne was almost always pustules and blackheads. Over time, I did some
  9. looking at your picture, this is nearly exactly what I have. I haven't found a way to get rid of them either. It really sucks. For me, you can only really see the bumps when i stretch the skin on my face like when I laugh or something. I also am starting to get these bumps on my jawline, the area between my lower lip and chin, and the sides of my face. Good luck man, I hope we can both get rid of this crap.
