    Sudden Adult Acne Age 19

    Just finished my course of mino, but now I just broke out in more cysts plus a dime-size one... I don't really know what is going on...

    Sudden Adult Acne Age 19

    I'm open to anything that isn't hormone related - I'm scared to go on accutane, especially because of the side effects and initial breakout... i'm sensitive to a lot of medications, and even the mino i'm on is giving me some issues. so would my only option be accutane?
  3. Hi, so until the beginning of this year, I've always had pretty manageable skin... Breakouts here and there whenever I was on my period or wasn't eating right, but most of the time, my skin was perfectly fine and I barely wore makeup. However, all of a sudden in the span of about 2 weeks, my face erupted with a bunch of white heads and puss-filled nodules around my T-zone... in a matter of weeks, that spread all around my face, and cysts and nodules started popping up. It's been about 5+ mont

    Sudden Acne Age 19?!?!

    i couldn't breathe properly while on it, and could not wear my contacts. this was a huge problem, especially because i am an athelete. Hmm, did your acne turn intos cysts after taking antibiotics, or did it turn into cysts only after using the topicals? If they turned into cysts after using topicals, i suggest you stop irritating your face i honestly can't remember. however, i do remember noticing that i got a bunch of cysts and lumps around my cheeks and chin (which i never had before) after

    Quitting Yaz After A Week

    oh wow i'm so sorry to hear that. i hear mixed reviews about yaz - i wanted to be hopeful and last it for a few more months in hopes that this was just an initial purging phase, but i was also so scared that it would just keep getting worse and worse. now i've decided not to take it, but my acne has not become any better.

    Sudden Acne Age 19?!?!

    I see...I feel the same as you do. If you feel you should go natural, then thats what you should do. Have you tried going dairy free? I heard it causes cysts because of all the added hormones I've also heard of that - however, my diet has not changed at all and if anything, I've probably eaten less dairy this year than last. Nothing is explaining why I erupted with the breakouts.

    Sudden Acne Age 19?!?!

    i've gotten regular facials, antibiotics, accutane, topical treatments, and laser treatments even (thank god i am good family friends with my derm, otherwise these would have all been so expensive!!)

    Sudden Acne Age 19?!?!

    I'm actually so scared to try new medication... I've never been on harsh meds before this year (like accutane, BC) and I'm trying to opt for a more natural way, since my body obviously doesnt like them I also know that my family has a history of having a lot of health problems, thats why I actually maintain a healthy life style lol. But thanks, will do.
  10. Earlier this year I started to get a bunch of whiteheads that I never had all around my T zone before... But afterwards, I went to the derm and I got treatment but nothing went away and all those whiteheads turned into cysts and nodules and spread all over my face. Before that, I had completely clear skin with some minor breakouts right before/during my period. I used to always get complimented on my skin and only wore make up for special occasions. I can honestly say that I have a very health

    Quitting Yaz After A Week

    I've just started taking yaz about a week ago, but I've been getting some nasty side effects (cystic acne every where, severe nausea, depression, anxiety). I was wondering, since i"ve only taken it for about a week, will my acne return with vengeance once i get off it? i know people say to stick with it but i can't handle wanting to vomit at all times of the day and not being able to breathe. But I don't want more breakouts. I had pretty much clear skin with some minor breakouts, but the doc sub
