  1. Hi Everyone, My nose is probably the worse part of my mild acne. All the pores look clogged with blackheads and some even have little hairs coming out. I went to the derm yesterday and she told me that they are not blackheads, instead its something called "---stasis"(I can't remember what she said it was called but it was some medical term). It is a skin condition and there is no cure. Maybe she is right because I have tried everything on it, benzaclin, clindoxyl, differin, retin-a. It just d
  2. My nose is disgusting! The pores are huge and all are black. Its like having a hundred black plugs on your nose. The thing is, I am not sure if they are blackheads or whiteheads. The top is black, but once i squish my nose, a ton of white pus comes out, not like the hardened blackheads. So are they whiteheads or blackheads and what can i do to fix it? I've tried differin/bp/retin-A, nothing works. This problem never goes away. HELP

  6. I have this red blotch of skin above my lip that has been there for at least 2 years. I think it was due to me shaving over a small pimple. Every since then, there has been a permanent red mark. A small red dot with the surrounding skin red. Is there anything i can do? I really do not think any type of cream will do Please Reply Thanks
  7. I have large pores on my nose that are covered with blackheads, very visible. I use to try pore strips but I've stopped since I heard that they make the situation worse. I have little hairs growing out of them (not that visible) I've been on retin A for the past few months (since Dec) and it hasn't made a difference. Anyone know what to do? I could surely use the help! Thanks
  8. I've been using Retin A since December 2003. Along the way my derm has boosted the dosage from 0.25 -> 0.05. I have mild/moderate acne and there hasn't really been any improvement. I'm not sure if its time to change to something else. My derm sucks, everytime i go see him, all he says is "looks pretty good" when nothing has changed. He prescribes me the same thing everytime and the session lasts for like 3 minutes. SHOULD I ASK FOR SOMETHING ELSE? I really want to end this acne pro
