  1. One thing that helped my forehead acne when it was pretty bad was cod liver oil capsules or pyrithione zinc capsules.
  2. How often do you wash your face? I used to wash mine 3 times a day and it looked similar to yours. It got better when I used BP less often and like once every 1 or 2 days. It was keeping my face too inflamed.
  3. How often do you wash your face? I would wash my face three times a day at one point. It was at its worst when I would do that. When I started only washing my face once a day with a benzoyl peroxide cleanser my skin got a lot better.
  4. I just wanted to share a little story that I was thinking about today. When I was 16 my acne started to become noticeable. I had had mild skin issues probably since age 14 but it got to the point where it was noticeable and I wanted to fix it at age 16. I started washing my face with new cleansers (Benzoyl peroxide, Salicylic acid, etc) I would religiously wash my face 2 to 3 times a day. This in hindsight caused my acne to become worse but at the time I thought it was just naturally gett
  5. Hey Eric, When I was a young man your age I went to a very similar situation. When I read this it really hit home. I want to tell you the exact things that started helping my acne get better. Maybe it will work for you too. I tried eating overly healthy (didn't work). So eat what you want just try to avoid too much sugar (especially chocolate) and cut back on fried foods. Eat more baked/grilled meats and vegetables. Fruit is tolerated by many but for me it causes my face to break out (no ide
  6. I want to start by saying I am not an expert and there are a lot of conflicting opinions about how often people should take probiotics and if they are even necessary long term. So this is just my story. I took probiotics daily for a year and a half. I would take one, 20-30 min before breakfast. I think it did help a lot at first. My digestive issues got a lot better and they seemed to help my skin. Over time though I think the effects started to taper. About a year in I wasn't feeling like the p
  7. foreal. I wish my skin was that even when I was a teenager haha
  8. All of these questions practically just haunted me haha. About a year ago i started recovering from an eating disorder. As a young man it was definitely not something I ever thought would happen to me. My acne is actually doing okay right now. I have been revisiting this site the past couple days to possibly offer help or drop a comment here or there. I remember a few years ago I would come to this site desperate for some relief.
  9. Over the years it has been a constant struggle trying to figure out which foods (if they even do at all) affect my skin. Here is a list of foods I am pretty sure have some sort of effect on my skin. 1. fruits, definitely bananas, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, oranges. apples seem to not have much of an effect. 2. milk chocolate. I can eat sugary treats in moderation without much effect unless it is chocolate. 3. greasy food, mostly greasy burgers. What is weird is fried chicken in moderation
  10. I thought candida was the cause of mine for a while but when I tried to fight it I ended up making things worse for a while. I went on a candida diet and ended up losing way too much weight from it. About 7 months into the diet I was religiously avoiding certain foods and my acne was probably the worst it has ever been. I really don't know what to believe when it comes to candida, so much conflicting information out there. All I know is that maintaining a healthy weight, and eating a balanced di
  11. It should go away and i'll tell you why i assume this lol. NEVER go in the sun without a sunscreen if using BP. When i first started using bp i was 16-17 and went out on the lake with my buddies that had a boat. I seriously ended up with sun poisoning on my face. It looked extremely bad but after about a month it healed and the redness slowly went away over time. I was more worried about cancer risk than the redness back then though, trust me you never want to get sun poisoning like I did. If mi
  12. I have always heard you definitely need to take the "d3" version of vitamin d. Also when I took vitamin d3 it seemed to make my skin feel a little odd, like little raised pores or something on my forehead. But i have heard it works great for others. Now i just sit in the sun 20-30 min a day to get my vitamin d.
