  1. Justin, you didnt even TRY to make a connection with what i was asking, and the agenda you want to push on me. My question was about a scab/scar, nothing even to do with a break out. If you are going to try to convince people of something you clearly feel so strongly about, at least make a decent effort!
  2. its like a scab now. its gotten better as far as the pain, but def looks awful. i do not know how i would know if it was a sore or something else though
  3. Hello everyone, I have been a low does of accutane for about 4 months (20mg/day, i weight 150 lbs). My skin has been clearing, and no real issues...until this week. it started with what i think was a little pimple on the side of lip (where my top lip meets my bottom lip). I think i picked at it a few times, and thought it would just go away. It has turned into kind of a cut, almost like a split that continues my lip. It is all dry and crusty, and everytime i open my mouth wise it splits and b
  4. I am in the same situation man. Working is really tough. In high school it wasn't a big deal, in college at least some other people have it, but at work barely anyone else has it so it makes it much harder. I also struggle to decide whether to go out or see people. Usually it ends up being okay, and the worst part is the anxiety before it.

  5. I have been dealing with acne for a long time, and I just recently starting noticing how mirrors effect my mood. After I get out of the shower and stare at myself under the bright lights in a clear close mirror I freak out and feel like I can't handle it. Then if I see myself in a "better" mirror I relax a little and feel a little better. Anyone else notice this?
  6. hey tblaze, if I am reading your name correctly I think we may share a habit that is contributing to our paranoia and anxiety...
  7. To be honest, I am not thinking so positively these days. It is so hard to stay positive all the time, without slipping back into depression and hiding.
  8. I have had some interesting thoughts on acne recently that I think may help change people perspective a little. I am 23 years old and have been dealing with acne for about 6 years. I would probably characterize my acne as moderate. Here is kind of random assortment of thoughts... I had bad week last week skin-wise. I toughed it all week, but Thursday after work I couldn't take it anymore. I went to a dimly lit bar and got really drunk mostly by myself. Friday morning I woke up hung over, and ju
  9. Thank you. One more question... I have previously used accutane, I have been off for a few months now. I still get an occasional pimple/breakout, is the regimen a good choice for me?
  10. I have a a couple questions... 1. i want to confirm that the products I am using are correct: cleanser- clean and clear foaming cleanser. oil free. bp- neutragenia on the spot 2.5% BP moisturizer- neutragenia oil free moisturizer 2. i workout in the middle of the day. i feel like i have to wash my face after. should i just rinse with water? should i use cleanser? moisturizer? how about BP? thanks in advance for any advice.
