  1. Hi everyone I can't believe that I'm back on this website again. I'm a 20-year-old Chinese woman who has been struggling with acne since age 10. What's really frustrating is that I absolutely have no family history of acne. My mom and dad have perfect skin, so do my grandparents, and aunts/uncles. My male cousin struggled with the occasional pimple when he was 14, but it was barely visible. I started to have pimples on my forehead when I was 10. Kids made fun of me, but I didn't pay attent
  2. The thing is, there is no cure to acne, so I cant do much about it. I could go on Accutane, but it has loads of side effects and doesnt work for everybody out there. I cant use topicals because I have hypersensitive skin. Topicals make my face red and irritated. I cant go out in the sun because it makes my face red and irritated too. Thank you so much for replying so fast, I appreciate makes me feel less alone. I'm going to see a dermatologist in November, hopefully she'll do sthg that could he
  3. Hey there I'm 19 too, and I've had acne since age 10. It was mild at the beginning (forehead only) and then crept downward. I had it pretty bad in high school (red, inflammatory, some pus, disgusting), but it subsided around age 18. Now I'm 19, I have a lot of clogged pores and tiny skin-coloured bumps and some whiteheads. Everybody in my family (and extended family) has perfect flawless skin (my mom has dry skin and my dad normal skin, i know for sure im not adopted, i look exactly like my
  4. Hey there guys, I've been taking vitamin d3 (dry form, daily dosage of 2000 IU) for about a week now, and all I've experienced so far are new breakouts located around the mouth and chin areas (where I seldom break out usually). I've heard so many success stories about vitamin d3 that I thought I would give it a try, but it seems to have negative effects on my skin. I can't expose my skin to the sun because it turns red and irritated (I have hypersensitive and oily skin). Did any of you guys expe
  5. My face becomes red and irritated when I expose it to the sun. That's why I tried and am still trying vitamin D3, but it's been a week and I only see negative effects. I'm gonna stop using it after the second week if there's no improvement. And no one in my family has had or has acne, that's why I'm still hoping I would outgrow it. It's not genetic nor is it hormonal. Anyways thanks for your reply
  6. Hey guys, I've had acne for 9 years. I started breaking out on my forehead when I was 10 years old, and I was always picked on, and even bullied, because of my skin. In middle school, my acne spread to my cheeks, chin, and temples. In high school, it became severe and inflammatory (I was 14-15 at that time) and it covered 80% of my face except the jawline. When I was 17-18, the acne transformed itself into tiny little bumps that covered every inch of my face. I took Accutane for 3 months (da
