  1. I have been experiencing a lot of work-related stress as of late and it's getting overwhelming. Now I'm in no intention of committing any suicide but at times I do lose control of my feelings. Now I got prescribed by 2nd period of Accutane treatment last month. While I did purchase it (20mg/day), I did not consume anything yet. However, my Acne is getting severely worse and it's in parts where I could not apply cream on it. My psychiatrist prescribed me Escitalopram 20 mg just recently when
  2. Today I had a kenalog injection and I was wondering the following: 1. Will friction on the scar cause it to become more recovery resistant meaning that the scar will be less likely removed? Like I wear a sweater that feels a little sensitive and scratchy in my chest. Will it affect my removal rate? 2. Would muscle building have any effect on my scars? Like if I build muscles will the scars grow? 3. How many injections on an average size scar does it take to get it fully recovered?
  3. A few years ago, I was told by my dermatologist that I needed Kenalog injected on each and every single keloid scar spot on my chest. I was nervous at first because I have a very low tolerance in pain. After a few months of injections once a month, I got sick and tired of it.

Does anyone know if tea tree oil actually works to remove keloid scars? Here is what my scar looks like today.
  5. I'm 19 and I still get acne at least once a month or sometimes once every week or two. I notice that my skin seems oily especially when I stay indoors. Is there a way I can reduce my oil generation naturally?
  6. I'm currently a 19 year old boy. Around 3 years ago, I had a very severe acne breakout on my chest. There were so many pimples on my chest that I couldn't even count or even stand in the shower. I bled very often on my chest. Then as time went by, the acne started to die. However, after the acne was dead, unluckily, there was some "undead acne" that seemed to stay or perhaps grow on my chest. I thought those scars would go away but they never seemed to. I know I've had terrible acne issu
