    Acne hurts me real bad

    Hi everyone It has been a while I hadn't posted. While I was away, I still suffer from acne. Big cysts. Two to three new acne on ny face every week which will definetly leave scars as soon as they appear. I also have mild depression or is it severve? As I keep thinking about my acne 80% in a day. My head hurts sometimes. I sufferred from it because I am scared. Terrified that one day my face will become worst. I really need supports and hugs and compliments that could soothe my mind. No one seems to understand my circumstances and it hard for me to explain how uncomfortable I am right now. Anyway, cheers to everyone who suffers acne the same as me.

    I give up.

    Hey!! I know that you feel like giving up. I understand how you feel. I am suffering the same as you are right now. I can't say that I have no feeling for giving up because I have it spinning in my head now and then. However, I keep saying to myself when I get that kind of feeling that it will be alright. Keep being positive. Things will get better. Back then, I cried alone and walked back to see myself in the mirror. Crying badly and sadly on how my face turned into pizza. So I barely look at the mirror now a day. It helps and you should try avoid mirror. I don't think I am helping but I try to say that don't worry. You have me that experinced the same and feel free to talk it out.
  3. I understand how you feel. I also have scars and new inflammable acne emerging 2 to 3 every week. It leaves redness spots and it hurts. I cried a lot. Wish for another day that I counld wake up without a bump on my face.
  4. Hi readers I guess this is my 1 year and 2 months on differin. My situation right now is 70% better. The rest is uncontrol acne that would keep coming. I start to think that this is the most I could get from differin and benzac. I still have pastule, papule and cyst 2 - 3 in each week. Eventhough, I apply benzac all over my face at noght and spot benzac on the cyst itself, it does no effect or little effect to the cyst. My dermatologist recommend me to change to retin-a. Has anyone ever switch from differin to retin-a? Is it better with people who have problem with cyst? I have no idea how my skin got clogged and it forms a cyst every single week. Should I consider using something else to help the cyst? Please share your experince so I can end my cystic ance.

    I don't think I complete the dosage. Not sure how much should I take because the dematologist didn't talk about the dosage at all. Have you ever had it before? How long does it take and could you share bow much did you take? Thank you

    I once had it. It was great but after I stop taking it, acne breakout worst than before I had isotretinoin. Ortherwise, I need to take it throughout my life which should not be a wise choice.

    Hello this is probably one of the worst moments in my life. I got many cysts up on my face. I am scared. It is the return of my nightmare again. I can't even look myself in the mirror. I hate my scars, my redness. Acne keeps coming up without reasons. I am totally depressed. I want to cry out loud and claim that I want to sjrremder myself to acne. I have been fighting it for many many years. It has never been better. I have spent hundred thousand baht to clear myself but it never work. All dermatologists remedies didn't help me. It hurt me so bad. I am hurt. I want it to stop coming up. Why does it keeps poping on my face and always comes with redness. I haven't done anything bad to my face or did I? I have been using the same product for a year now. T T . Sorry for this unhelpful entry, but I need to let it out. I can't keep this anymore.

    What week is this?

    Hi everyone It has been a while that I haven't updated my new entry. So, my acne is still coming up on left cheek close to my mouth and two big cyst on my forehead. One in the centre and another one on my right. Before this there were 3 cyst on my forehead and a fews on my both left and right cheeks. All of them left red scars on my face. It makes me feel unhappy. I am losing my confidence. I don't know how does it come up or what causes it. I did apply benzac overnight and on the spot but lately it works less than excellent. Acne does not subsize as fast as it should. It begin to get red and dry then it comes up and left scar. It takes almost 2 or 3 weeks for me to elimiate a cyst. Very curious what happens.

    Week 6

    Epiduo is a combination of differin and benzac. I have never used it but I am experiencing differin and benzac. For the first 4 weeks, life is miserable of getting new acne daily. Until the week 12th of using differin, things slightly get better. Well....it is better than before but I am still not happy with the result. Now, I am on week 20....Anyway, I didn't take any antibiotic. So, I think it is normal to have new pimples for the first 12 weeks and them you can decide if you are happy with the result or not.

    Week 4

    I have been using differin. For alomost 20 weeks now and I still have acne. Howevere, it is better than before for the first 12 weeks. First 4 weeks was horrible. I understand how you feel. In my opinion, differin will help prevent future breakout. So that means the worst of getting acne will not be worst than what you had recently. For scarring, I have experinced the same problem as you have. Differin and time will slightly heal but for my skin, it never fades away. I believe your skin is better than mine. Hopw you heal soon.

    How to Embrace Your Acne

    This is a helpful remedy for me. I suffer from acne and it minimizes my courage to look myself in the mirror. I am scared. I still have acne that would appear anywhere on my face and leave ugly red marks. It tortures me. I lack of confidence and now, every day when I wake up, I would ask to myself for not knowing if there is a new acne. I try to ignore it but I can't. I cried many times alone in my room because of acne that hurt so bad. It is a nighmare that I wish one day I will wake up away from it. Please, keep posting this as seems to be a big help for my mind. Thank you

    Differin week 27

    Hi everyone I am on differin for 27 weeks now. What a ride for me. Still, acne shows up and cause me anxiety. I believe it is all about the hormones because I have chnage my routine to minimize the acne risk. I wash my pillows every week. I eat healthy food such as grain and almond milk. I sleep before 11 pm. Almost every day. I find a hobby to keep me stay away from stress and over thinking. I also do vbeam and smooth beam laser but help little with scars. I think I am going to use differin for the rest of my life for the best of prevention from acne although, it did. Ot perform 100% clear face. I also use benzac 2.5% and 5%. For 5%, I apply it before washing my face and 2.5% is for overnight as my skin uses to 2.5% with no irritation. So the combination of differin and benzac performs great for me but I wish they could do better in preventing acne. Sometime, I apply a dot of benzac on my little cyst for a hope of eliminating it overnight but recently it took 2 weeks to completly eliminate it. The cyst hurt me and create red mark which I hate so much. I wash my face and still feel the bump of it. I wish it could just disappear. By the way, I am 23 going up to 24 next year. So I guess I have late teen acne. It is suck to have it. I try to avoid looking myself in the mirror. It has been many months I look away from myself. Lucky me that I have short eye sight so whenever I look myself in the mirror, I only see my blurry face. It feel like my skin is better when not lookinh throught my glasses and that grow my confidence. How long does it take to completly steer clear from acne? I would ask myself for every night. I even pray for myself to wake up without finding new acne on my face. I don't want to feel the bumps on my face. So this is probably just my online diary now. I feel better when writing things out. You should try it if you bad about yourself. Hope everyone who read till the end stay safe from acne. Wish you all the best
