Talking to someone else about their acne in Emotional and psychological effects of acne Posted February 18, 2011 · Edited February 18, 2011 by omi This isn't about my experiences with acne, as I got on a proper regimen and am now over six months completely clear. I went from terrible horminal cysts to baby skin and I feel great. I just wish I could share my experience with others.Long story short: There's a girl in my class* who has the exact same acne as I did. A young woman with hormonal nodulocystic acne. I feel really bad for her, because I remember the pain and itch and embarassment of it. She wears a ton of make-up to cover it up, but with skin that bad, I KNOW almost nothing works. I want to talk to her about my experiences with trying different things, but I don't know how she would react to it. I know some people get really offended by others offering solutions (usually terrible advice, like 'stop eating chocolate') and I don't want to come across as snobby or know-it-all. I really do believe she would benefit from a similar regimen as mine (I switched BC pills, and got prescriptions for retin-A and Clindasol) Read: Not the exact same regimen, but similar. I'm not a doctor, but I can see she's going through the same chin-cancer horror I did.Should I just mind my own business or try to help?*and by class, I mean university, not high-school.
