  1. Hello all, I have recently developed 3 subacious cysts on my forehead. They are probably about the size of a pea and are clear, fluid filled bumps which move around under my skin. They are not painful, but are rather unsightly. I am posting to ask for the voice of experience on this one, with mixed literature on whether or not these will ever disappear.

  8. Hello friends. I haven't been active for a while, since i've been busy with uni and thought i'd stay away from here for a bit, try and concentrate on things other than my face. Anyway! I was hoping you guys could help me out with some info/advice. Now that the redness from on my face is beginning to subside, i'm beginning to notice some small indentations on the sides of my face. You can only notices when my face is in shadow with light coming from behind, looking straight on. It's no worse tha
  9. It looks like an isolated scar on otherwise good skin. My person suggestion would be not to worry about it. and maybe just do gradual peels on it. However, if it really bugs you, go for something these other guys suggested.
  10. Hehe, i love how you dscribed it with a little elf. Yeah, I think you're right not to be bothered by them. Most people have some small imperfections, which is what gives people character
