  1. Did your inflammation ever go away? I have this exact thing right now and I can't seem to shift this...
  2. Hi, sorry to hear about your situation! If I were you I would definitely change derm and ask for a stronger dose or to be on it for a longer period than 4 months. I find it really strange that your derm told you to take it for 2 weeks in 2015 to see how you respond. I'd definitely go get yourself a new derm though!
  3. Hi, I had a smallish pustule on my chin last week, I stupidly popped it too early and it swelled to a phenomenal size. It scabbed over, the inflammation went down gradually, and I left the scab to fall off by itself to reveal a head underneath.

  6. Hey all, I am new here because I am so lost as to what to do now with my skin... I have had "pimples" and EXTREMELY oily skin since I was 11 (it was never acne, just the one/two papules every time I woke up). I tried everything over-the-counter and everything the doctor would give me: nothing! However, it only got bad about 10/11 months ago where it became full-blown cystic (I am now 22). I went back to the doctor and he gave me Epiduo which was terrible and didn't help. He also said this was
