  1. I'm probably going to upset some people with this post. I read some posts often from people on here saying that we need to accept our skin, that our acne doesn't define us, yadda yadda yadda. I know these people have good intentions but these types of post upset me very much. The reason is that it just tells me that society will always treat acne without the seriousness that it requires, I don't want to "accept my skin". I want my skin to be fixed and right now we still don't have that acne p
  2.

  3. - All the time spent in the morning prepping your face with all the washing, topicals, moisturizing, and sunscreen. - Must place bandaids or acne patches on all the sores to keep them from bleeding and helping them heal (and to prevent further infection) - pain from all the cysts just from moving your face - constant worry about anything or anyone that can touch your face to cause further irritation. - the need to avoid activities that can cause one to sweat - All the ti
  4. Then follow your own advice and get the hell out of here. This forum is for support and it doesn't need assholes like you. Many people here are depressed or possibly suicidal. You are basically saying to someone who may be in that state of mind to "get over it because other people have it worst". Yea, just be quiet okay? You need to talk to a professional and learn why that is not the way to help someone struggling with psychological problems. Jesus Christ.
  5. Doctors know that genetics play a large role in the pathology of acne vulgaris. If this is the case, we should be doing lots of studies to find out which genes they are. We should be able to figure this out. I mean we have the technology to sequence the entire human genome for chris sakes! After we know which genes cause it, then we can develop treatments to turn those genes off.
  6. Seeing a therapist might help but at the end of the day what I want is my skin to be clear. I wish the medical community would come up with a permanent acne cure already. That would be so much better than wasting time and money on a therapist.
  7. I know deep down I sometimes have some resentment towards my parents. I think I feel this way for two reasons. The minor one is that Acne has a large genetic factor and I obviously get my genes from my parents. The main reason is that they didn't help me get treatment early when it first started. I was young teenager and I didn't even know you could see a skin specialist. If they had taken me to one earlier, I would probably be in much better shape today. Of course they ignored my skin issues be
  8. There should be medications that help with hormonal acne. You should see your derm to get a prescription.
  9. OP any new developments from the company?
  10. I don't think the medical community should stop funding research into finding cures for other diseases. There is enough money to work on more than one thing. I just want some progress on our issues. The last time I heard of a new acne study was almost 3 years ago about a possible vaccine. Absolutely nothing since then. It is frustrating.
  11. We spend billions trying to find cures for all these different diseases but I never hear anything about acne. It really pisses me off. Acne should be the priority for the medical community. While the condition itself isn't fatal, it effects almost every single teenager and many adults. That is hundreds of millions of people around the world.
  12. Bitter and lots of anxiety. It takes a lot of self control not to snap.
  13. You should definitely find a hobby and join groups of people with like-minded interests whatever that maybe. On the other hand I would advise against the suggestion of going to church but this is just my personal feelings. I no longer want to believe in a God that would think it is just to curse children with acne and horrible skin. I'm now an atheist. This is your own personal decision of course.
