  1. I'm going insane with my acne right now. Go away inflammation!!!
  2. I've been in and out of this forum for the past 6-7 years. My acne has gotten progressively worst. Sigh. I wish my acne would just... just!!! heal and be clear. So let's remind ourselves to smile every day, be postive, because we're in it for the long haul. We'll beat acne.
  3. Alex81, I started Dan Kern's Regimen 7 weeks ago. I may want to consider holistic treatment. I have a good diet, but I may have to consider eating more organic foods. I can't do prescription treatment because I just don't have the money :( cvd, these red inflamed marks appeared one day, all at once, in early December. They did not contain cystic pus at all so it makes me wonder if these marks are a result of bacteria on my pillow. Is it possible for the bacteria to enter my skin and just make
  4. Hi everyone. I've had these red acne-like marks on my cheeks for 4 months. They've been increasing in number and I'm quite at a loss what to do. Can anyone help me identify if this is still acne? These red marks are not elevated. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/gallery/image/45396-week-4/ I am on The Regimen and I slather on the BP on my cheeks.
  5. k3tchup puts it succintly and I agree. However way you want to rationalize it, acne is biological. And you can't control your body's biology, but you can control how you treat your skin (in attempt to control the acne).
  6. You've experienced first hand just how people can be completely ignorant about acne. The next time that happens to you, refute with a witty remark. Don't let it get to you, because a stranger's words should not affect your life, your happiness.
  7. I understand how you feel. What helps me is live your best life now. Be selfish to preserve your individual self. Keep your self-confidence intact by communicating with others and focus on a goals. By talking with people more, you expose yourself to new situations and people that when you encounter these feelings you will know how to rationalize yourself out of them. I used to put myself down a lot by making it an attractive vs. acne world, but that's not entirely the truth. There are grey areas
  8. This is going to sound silly. When I successfully keep myself busy (and get into the flow of work with good concentration), I smile at the end of my work. I used have cats but I had to put them up for adoption (expensive to keep on a student budget)
  9. That freedom and confidence you speak of is exactly what I feel when I remove my contacts/glasses. That confident is so awesome that I don't even worry about my skin. I wish I can make do without the corrected vision, but I really need my glasses/contacts because without them, I can't get around
  10. I know what you mean, thrillpink. When someone compliments me, I refute the truthfulness of their compliment in my head: "You're so dead wrong." But sometimes, we should just accept the compliment at face value. If people with clear skin get so gung-ho about people complimenting them, we deserve to accept the compliment and feel good too. We shouldn't think so much into compliments, because compliments, I think, are never made lightly. No one wants to overpraise someone but compliments are

    2012. Acne again. This time, worst. On Retin-A Micro 0.01% and Tretinoin Cream 0.025%.
  12. I agree about rebranding ours and others' perception of acne. What about "acned"? Past tense to denote negative feelings associated with acne is in the past. At the same time, denotes our unanimous desire to make acne (the condition) a past.
  13. idiot98, I know how you feel. And PaulH85 is right about putting ourselves out there (and to never take it personally). Whenever I think about my loneliness, I wonder who will like me for who I am and my acne? These thoughts about loneliness are coming from within and how we see ourselves and others. Loneliness isolates us from people as if we can't be on their same level; loneliness isolates us because we feel we don't deserve someone. Perhaps what helped me was I focused on living my li
