    I need help.

    My acne has calmed down significantly, but it seems like my skin has been damaged and I would REALLY appreciate anyone who could provide a method as to help my scarring and sparse active acne.
  2. I haven't been on Acne.org for a while now because i had the impression that my acne troubles were making a full remission. I was pretty damn wrong. For a while i was walking around all confident and what not, didn't really worry about my face because i didn't think anything was wrong with it. I would look in the mirror and not really be perfectly satisfied with how i looked but it was alot better than what it used to be. And then, i made the mistake of looking closely at my face in the light wi
  3. I know my skin stopped getting infected as much after starting the retinol. I put that stuff all over my face once I saw results. The peeling was quite noticeable. But endured that to try to heal my skin. But now I find that using the retinol sparingly every other night and using proactive on the actual actives helps a great bit. My skin is still far from satisfactory though and its still an embaressment to go in public. that's why I have like no social life anymore loloh well. I guess some peo
  4. so I went to my dermatologist and she took a look at me and said the obvious: STOP TOUCHING, PICKING POPPING. I gotta tell ya, that's probally the worst part. It seems that humans inherently want to pick and pop no matter how many professionals give sound advice and provide facts about the damage you cause by doing so. Long story short: MY SKIN IS CLEARING UP :DDD I was prescribed a retinol 150 cream. The stuff cost me $80 !! With a price tag like that it better be good, right? Well I experienc
  5. I haven't started Accutane yet but my dermatologist gave me this retinol cream which is a tad bit like Accutane topically im hoping it helps. I think it is because ive noticed a decrease in pustules
  6. Well I just woke up and looked in the mirror. I seem to have developed a new pustule on my cheek along with more pus filling the papsules so now they are visible whiteheads. I also have loads of red marks all over my jaws and a deep cyst that plays peek a boo with me between the eyes. Every single one of my pores seems to be clogged and my face just seems like a ticking time bomb for new inflamed bumps to appear. Then again it's been on this downward spiral for about a month now. I feel so alone
  7. the side effects are alarming but I feel like I could do great things. What is your current regimen?
  8. Hello all! I'm starting this blog because I believe I've reached a new low with my overall skin condition. Let's start with my skin history. I had perfect skin up until the seventh grade when I would get the odd pimple here and there. But it was just one pimple or two. Nothing that I would get too crazy about. Then around 11th grade I noticed a lot of new closed comedones. I was still a "newbie" in the acne game and I was just confused as to what these little devils were. They weren't blatently
  9. Hi. I'm currently using minocycline 100mg twice a day. Proactiv plus exfoliator once a day, and gold bond ultimate healing lotion on my face. Please give me feedback on what imdoing wrong and how can help my skin be better. It's horrible!!
  10. Ok so in my last post I sounded dreadful and had no hope. Well today I've noticed that my facial skin has less closed comedones, bit they are still there and I mean all over the place so nothing to significant. I also have a new pimple in my problem area(lower left jaw) but I'm waiting it out and I still refuse to use any chemicals on the skin. I've washed my face quickly and gently with a few splashes of cold water about 3 times(once a day) which is what the regemin calls for. There is somewhat
  11. My skin seems to be taking a turn for the worse. It's hard to look in the mirror because of how monstrous the skin is becoming. I refuse to shave because the caveman regemin calls for nothing to touch the face except for water which seems to be still pushing it. There's simply no way I can't do a light rinse with water everyday, or I wouldn't be able to go in public, the skin is so horrible. I'm starting to get really depressed and my skin is showing it. I know that this is a detox phase and ben
  12. I'm pleased to announce that my use of cheap drugstore chemicals to treat my problematic/ oily acne skin is over. FINISHED haha. This is the first day in a year I haven't slathered some cheap, harmful substance on my face in a feeble attempt to control the endless amount of bumps and oily mess that has decided to call my face home. I realized that using benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid wasn't banishing pimples as they were advertised. What I've been doing is stripping my skin of everything it

    Cleared skin... Very temporary results Does a hell of a lot more damaging than healing Could cause permanent skin dis function At first my skin, and I, adored this product. It provided a lasting clear feeling and texture like no other product. My face quickly got used to the BP I was using and refused to show steady results. I noticed my skin was losing the youthfulness that makes someone look attractive. Instead it was dry and completely deprived of any type of moisture. This led to my skin ov
