  1. I'm 18 and female and I would say my acne was moderate. It wasn't mild-moderate and it was not moderate-severe because I didn't typically suffer from cysts and the like and I was relatively spared from any bodily acne. The thing is that my acne was so very, very stubborn and as soon as one spot disappeared (which took some time) at least one other would turn up. My skin was always harassed by bumps, puss and scars. I think my acne was/is hormonal, because acne was present no matter if my skin w
  2. Hi, It's been about five months since I stopped taking accutane, I didn't experience a lot of side effects, non too serious. I never stopped taking it during those five months I was on it. Collectively I took 140 mg/kg. I had nicer skin than I've had for years up until June when stubborn spots started to appear, now in July they won't go away. I have it on my forehead, cheeks, nose, chin and one or two around my mouth. I think you can understand me when I say this is beyond horrible for
  3. Is there anything else than Salicylic Acid? It really doesn't do anything for me (the few times it does it only aggravates it). I'd love to squeeze it out, but majority of these pimples aren't all that close to the skin even though it looks like it. If I get a noticably white pimple I gently squeeze it out. I have a lot of under-skin zits on my cheeks. It look horrible!
  4. Hi There! I am so frustrated and I really need some help, my acne was moderately severe about a year ago, then I was put on some antibiotics and it got better but I had to stop (because... well there's a time mark). I am going back to the derm. in a few months but I don't want to be put back onto the antibiotics. BP doesn't work anymore and my face is constantly feeling oily (this happened after I had used ProActive a while back), if I drag a finger over my forehead it will typically be shiny
  5. I loathe Salicylic Acid, it has never done anything good for my skin and if anything happens, it makes things worse for me. My acne is very persistant and Salicylic Acid is way too weak for me. So I'm going to have to say Benzoyl Peroxide.
  6. I got an appointment with a dermatologist tomorrow, so I'll probably be kicking the stuff I waited pantiently with ProActiv, but still having a lot of pimples surfacing after over two weeks is kind of weird, especially in places were I never get pimples, plus I hate my skin being so greasy. I mean so what if I get a little greasy but it's a LOT in this case. BP works best for me, but the formula that was the best for me so far has been discontinued (even with the BP I still couldn't get rid of
  7. I guess I could look at it like that, this made me feel a little better :) Did your mother go with you to your dermatologist? Your answer made my teary, I feel so bad about my acne. I really hope that this derm will be able to clear it up because if my acne get any worse I'm not sure what I'd do. Feels good to know that other people have been in my place and that I'm not totally alone (even though I'd never wish acne on anyone). we all feel really bad about acne, i know it sucks. the th
  8. Hi! I'm 16 and a girl and I have very persistant acne, especially on my cheeks and forehead,. I've never had much problem on my temples, my nose and especially my mouth. Let me just say that my mouth = never any real problem. I may have had a pimple or two (really small ones) a few times but nothing too embarassing. So I started using ProActiv over two weeks ago, and my result: My skin has gotten very oily (something I never had a problem with before) and I have more inflammed pimples. I am
  9. I know!! And people that don't and have never had a real problem acne think that they know everything about good skin, they're just fortunate. I've tried several things, amongst others: Neutrogena Formula 10.0.6 Clinique Basiron Stioxyl Epiduo I'm currently on ProActiv but it's making my skin so oily and shiny and new pimples have come up, not even after two weeks anything is better. eeeeh, ProActiv didn't work for me. I have heard that it doesn't work as well as they say

  11. Hey! I got Epiduo prescribed in May, and my doctor (not derm.) told me to use it for four weeks, I used it from May-August but I then stopped in August because I got sunburned (which I never get) pretty badly. Epiduo did nothing good for me, but it really didn't do anything bad either. I'm going to a real derm. to get something that works prescribed for me. I can't recall having a major breakout while on Epiduo though. It might be from something else in your regimen?
  12. Hi! I am 16 and a girl, my acne is probably moderate, problem is that it's so persistent and stubborn that I finally gave up and told my mom to get an appointment. I got really lucky and because of a call-back I got an appointment within a few days with a good derm. Problem with this is that when I have either of my parents with me, I get so embarassed, but my mother does not understand that I do not want her in that room with me, I've begged her several times but she is standing firm.

  14. Uugggggh... this is killing me so much (our of sheer embaressment)!! But I'm texting my mom and telling her to make an appointment right now I hate, hate, hate acne so, so much!
  15. Hi Luke! First of, I'm 16 and a girl and also from Scandinavia (Sverige, är du svensk, dansk eller norsk ?) I have pretty bad acne, and in all honesty, I don't think that you have it that bad. It doesn't look deep, just as if it's spread (I have it almost all over my face -.-) But I'm very interested in how Accutane is working for you so I'll keep an eye on this post.
  16. Hi! I've had a tough time with my acne for about a year now (pictures can be seen here) and I've been trying really hard not the get so down about it. I've tried telling myself that I'm beautiful inside and out but I can't believe this lie anymore. Last year I was really depressed and down but I told no one and I though about suicide. I feel as if even my insides have been tainted by acne, I used to be so happy and "charismatic" but again, it feels as if it's all been tainted and I'm ang
  17. Hi! I'm 16 and a girl. Ever since last year I've been struggling with my very stubborn acne, not even the regimen will work for me, though BP is the thing that has worked "the best" and that's not saying a lot. My acne is making me feel so bad, I'm not sure what to do anymore!! I've tried: Neutrogena ACO Formula 10.0.6 Home recipes Epiduo (prescribed) Stioxyl Basiron This is only a few of what I've tried and the prescribed medication didn't to a single thing. I'm currently
