  1. Interesting. I've used tea tree oil for a few years now and I have never had any burns. I do use aloe vera gel as well. Did anything work to help the burn?
  2. I don't think it's awful at all. It mostly looks like scarring to me. I'm not familiar with scar treatment options, but maybe you can look here and find some helpful information. Best of luck to you! http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/forum/34-reddark-marks-left-after-acne/
  3. Good luck, Brianna! You can do it! Try and stay positive. I know I get down on myself after I pick and see what I've done. And you're right you can't give up. This is a battle I know. I'm still struggling myself. Best of luck to you!
  4. Hello! Welcome to the org! I hope you keep progressing.
  5. I have had a cyst under my armpit for a couple of years. It's the same thing for me. It gets bigger after I shave, and it doesn't hurt at all. I've been to the doctors as well. I was told that it's fine, but I should go back if it becomes painful or larger than normal.
  6. I remember when I first started using the 10% BP. My face got extremely red and burned. I suffered through it. The bad side efffects did go away for me. It just takes a while for your skin to get used to it. But if it is really bad, try using it every other day for a while. Best of luck to you!
  7. I'm with these ladies. I've been using it for a few years, and I love it!
  8. Wow, great post! Attittude is everything, isn't it. It helps me to read other people's success. It gives me hope, so thank you! And thank you for serving our country as well.
  9. Have you ever tried tea tree oil? It isn't that expensive and it did wonders for me. I stopped using it, and my acne came back. I'm back on it again and my face is improving. It may not work for you, but I think it's worth a shot. I've tried the expensive prescription medicines, except Accutane, and they helped a tiny bit, but nothign like tea tree oil. I also use BP. Salycic acid never did much for me. And like jeyneg said, there is hope. You just have to believe. Best of luck!
  10. Hi Jeyne, and welcome! What have you tried for your acne in the past and what are you using right now? Good luck!
  11. That is very true. It has made me a better person, but it can go away any time now.
  12. Your perspective on this is interesting to me. For me, I can't wait until it stops. I don't want my skin to be something that I dwell on and worry about. I want something else to focus on. I don't physically spend that much time on my skin, but emotionally it's draining. I'm with Murph on this one. The day where I don't obsess over my skin cannot come soon enough. And yes, I know that having clear skin won't suddenly make me happy. I just know that I'm more confident when my face is clear and I
  13. Welcome and good luck! What kind of natural remedies are you using? Tea tree oil has been a big help for me.
  14. What? They do too! Congrats daveoh! I hope you're still not picking! I'm working on it myself.
  15. Great idea, but I'm with Stevil. I hate butterflies...don't ask me why, but they creep me out. Very creative though! I like it!
