  1. Okay so it has to come to a head. Thanks for the answers and advice The thing Im worried about is that the cyst seems so deep and I feel there is almost no way that it will just come to a head especially since there are no pores in that area (it seems). Is there a way to open it up safely?
  2. 1. I've never been on accutane before but I have used doxycicline and I suspect that that might be what caused it because before using doxy I wasn't getting cystic acne but when I started using it thats when I got some but then I just stopped it I didn't like the effects. 2. Also I noticed the area where I have the cyst is covered by a different kind of skin. It's like there is an extra layer of skin in that area that seems like it never exfoliates. I believe it I can somehow just shed that

  4. I have the same problem. I have this cyst on my jawline which I went to a derm and she said it was a cystic node and she injected it but I didn't really see much of a difference and it had been there for about a year and a half. I called today and the derm said it is probably a cystic fibrosis and I should go to a plastic surgeon to get it removed. Plastic surgeons are expensive so I don't know what to do. I hope someone can give some advice as well.
  5. Thanks alot for the help guys really encouraging. And trust me I know exactly how you guys feel because I've felt the same way. I've just gotten to the point where I have that "I dont care" attitude and I just act as if it doesn't bother me. Last week I was having a conversation with a girl that was interested in me so we talked for some time. Then some lady that I knew who saw me for the first time came up and she said "What happened to your face?" and I just glared at her and said "Whats wrong
  6. I've struggled with acne since I was about 12 and Im 20 now (going to be 21 in a few months). Even when I had acne for those yrs I was still attractive and girls would ask me out, flirt with me, etc (not to toot my own horn just telling my story). When I got to college I just had a terrible breakout in my freshman yr after having a rare summer of close to perfect skin. It sucked but I eventually recovered toward the end of that yr and although I still had some acne and marks I was still somewhat
  7. I have one scare that it deeper than the rest and its darker than my normal skin tone. Its been there for some time now but I'm now noticing it has gotten darker will it fade eventually? If not whats the best procedure to improve this scars? TCA?
  8. Im currently dealing with pitted/shallow acne scars on my cheek which im not a fan of but what is really bothering me is the discoloration that the scars have as if it wasnt bad enough that they are indented scars. Now im wandering does this hyperpigmentation in the indented scars fade? Will they fade with use of hydroquinone?
  9. Ok Ive been on this forum several times and I must say you all have been helpful. But I still have problems with my acne. Im now 19 yrs old male, African-American skin and my acne has calmed down A LOT. I currently have just 1 pimple which is going down. I use tea tree oil as an acne treatment, and its worked well for the most part. The problem is, blackheads and hyper pigmentation. I have blackheads on my cheeks that seem to always be there, once I squeezed them out (I did it cautiously) but
  10. Ive been using Lemon Juice for a while now and it works in fading marks and evening skin tone, I have ethnic (black skin). I wanted to get acne.org's AHA+ but I cant get it online right now, I hear its really good though. I also use Tea Tree Oil and thats working wonders as well. Do you guys believe Lemon Juice can be used as an alternative to AHA+?
  11. Missed this one but here is the answers: 1. Not completely sure what kind it is but I get inflamed acne on my jaw area ( not exactly on the jaw but like between the ear and cheek) I have oily skin but I dont really get pimples in my t-zone often just a few blackheads. 2. (Answered in #1) 3. I think it really started when I was like 14 (im 18 now 19 in october) 4. I now figured out it gets bad if I eat ice cream, dairy, dont follow my routine properly, etc. 5. Its good when I follow my routine, &

My Routine is: - Cleanse my face apply tea tree oil before bed - In the morning I shower and use African Black Soap to wash my face - Dry with a face towel, then apply tea tree oil again - Moisturize - Later I
