  1. I dont know if this is the correct board but

    For years i have had this, but no doctors have really been able to help me. I have tried to get help from this site as well but unable to.

    I cant get my dry skin to go away, it is like a fungus that grows ON TOP of my skin, and the only way to get it away is to roughly scrub away with a towel after i get out of the shower (i do this once a week). But after i do this, my skin gets EXTREMELY red for a few days, because of the scrubbing away of the dry skin, but i have no other choice, it wont go away with lotion, because it ISNT dry skin, it is fungus on top of my skin, i dont know what to do, i probably have the worst skin on this board because of this unknown conditiion.

    Has anyone heard of anything like this? My face has gotten worse every single year, the acne is not even that bad anymore, its just the scarring from the scrubbing and the redness, and the dryness has gotten worse and worse, it is getting harder to scrub away

  3. i feel like i have zero personality, really boring. I have been able to communicate with people, something that was hard a couple years ago because of social anxiety and shyness, but now i am able to talk with people easily, but i just seem really boring. I was never this way before acne, that shit destroyed my personality, also it is pretty hard to carry a conversation, or keep the conversation interesting. It is okay for a little bit but then it always dies, damn, these are weird problems for someone to be having at 23. Never gonna get a girl


  4. I think its sad that you dont drink.

    Anyway. Drinking is fun, i love alcohol just like the TC. Dumb people in this thread talking like the TC is an alcoholic. It is okay to get drunk every weekend, it is the thing to do when you are young. If you missed out on this phase then i feel bad for you. And yes it does help with social problems, and sometimes if you had a rough week, just erase that shit in that one night with some Yager lol

    I'm 22 and have never drank before. I find it hilarious that you think it's sad when someone doesn't drink. My dad was an alcoholic when I was a baby, I'd never want to put myself in the position to become one. First it's social drinking, then you start drinking alone and it spirals out of control.

    Lol typical reply of someone who has never drank.

    "First you are drinking for a good time. Then you are all by yourself squeezing out every drop of a bottle found in the trash cause you are homeless!"

    LMAO. We are responsible adults, it is okay to go out and have some drinks, lol not everyone ends up depressed haha. Ignorant.


  5. I'm going to sound like a massive cow for saying it, but I think it's sad when people have to drink alcohol to be sociable and enjoy themselves.

  6. Really? Your skin returned to being super oily? I don't think that's normal. You should talk to your derm.

    Yeah, took about a month or two and the skin became even more oily then before i was on accutane. I dont think its normal too, but then again, my acne coming back isnt normal either. The whole accutane course was a mess and ended up doing more harm then good since it didnt even work, but ended up scarring my skin up badly, and making my skin red, ALL THE TIME


  7. I washed less and my skin isn't as oily now, if atall - I only wash like once evry 2 days , and only in the shower - i used tto wash 3-4 tiems a day.

    I know it's hard but it fixes it.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys and girls. And a question about the less washing technique, do you still take showers? When you say less washing, do you mean with a soap or cleanser on your face, or just water period. Meaning you only take a shower once every 2 days? Or you only wash your face with the cleanser every 2 days


  8. I just got off accutane, literally like a month ago, and have started breaking out again. It seems to be getting worse, i dont know what to do. Im starting back on ziana a topical, some bullshit that didnt work before i got on the accutane, but my derm is convinced it will work now, but whatever. If it doesnt work, is there a chance that one day my acne will just disappear? I am not going on accutane again, i cant put myself through that shit again


  9. Finished my course like 1 month ago, and sad to see acne slowly coming back, granted it is not a lot, just small bumps, no real big zits or anything, but it worries me because i am scared that this is just the beginning, and it will continue to get worse.

    I talked to my derm and she said to use Ziana, which is a topical retinoid. I am not sure about this simply because i was on Ziana for a year before accutane, and it didnt work very well.

    Do you think this is a good idea? Maybe the accutane weakened my acne so the Ziana will work better? #dontknow


  10. Don't rub that hard. If it irritates your skin then you shouldn't be doing it. Get a facial cleanser that has some kind of scrubbing beads in it. Don't get one with apricot pit scrubbies or anything like that, though because it will irritate your skin further. Instead, get something with microbeads. They're less scratchy. I like Neutrogena scrubs.

    Yeah but if i dont rub hard then it doesnt come off? Like my dry skin is weird. On Monday there will be none, then on Tuesday there will be a little, then on Wednesday there will be more, then on thursday there will be even more

    Is this normal? Is it supposed to increase like that?


  11. My cheeks get a build up of dry skin that i rub away about once a week. Is this normal? It is pretty nasty, if i dont "rub it away" it will continue to build up more and more, so i am forced to do this once a weeek. It is pretty tough so when i say rub away, i literally mean im rubbing at my skin, irritating it. My skin is always really red after this.

    Is this considered exfoliating?


  12. ah you're a redskin fan, so am I!

    anyways I'm 19 but I turn 20 in two months and you would think I'd be looking forward to my birthday, but at this point, I couldn't dread it more. I know I'm gonna have to face family/friends for it and with the condition my skin is in right now, I don't want to face anyone. Especially since I thought I was doing so good, but it's like a one step forward and two steps backward process with skin, I've learned.

    Hell yeah Go Skins! I live and die the Redskins

    And god damn i just want to be able to talk to girlssssssss... Like i said im not a depressed person, i can live and function in this world with my face, but the one thing i cant do is try to talk to girls cause it always ends up awkward cause i know theyre like wtf is this ugly looking dude. Fucking sucks, see so many beautiful girls everyday at school/work/wherever
