  1. I will go back to using tea tree, thank you!! And I hadn't thought about coffee. That's very interesting. How long have you been caffeine free?
  2. Hey, thanks for your reply. I've stripped my diet back and it's very acne friendly. I change my bed sheets/towels etc. very regularly and only use acne friendly products like cetaphil. I think the acne I had before was hormonal, but this new cystic flare up has only been since antibiotics and has got worse the longer I've been on them. Since coming off them I've had no new acne. I'm just trying to heal these active ones now. thank you for your suggestions. Also I'm 22/F and have has mild/modera

  5. Intro: I'm starting a blog b/c I have nowhere else to turn to at the mo. If I moan and sob to the (very lovely) people I have in my life, I can't help but feel as though I'm bothering them. It also usually ends in getting a tonne of completely well-meaning but completely unhelpful acne fighting tips. (sorry Aunt Clara, but that post-BBQ zit you dried out with toothpaste isn't even in the same ballpark as inflammatory cystic acne.) Like I said though, lovely people. A bit of back ground: Lon
  6. Looking for a bit of reassurance. Long term sufferer of mild/moderate acne (22y/o.) I was put on Lymecycline standard dose two months ago after my skin became slightly worse. (hadn't been prescribed anything but topical treatments for a number of years before this.) It has been terrible ever since. I've read a few hopeful posts about an initial breakout that eventually subsides but my face seems to be getting worse and I've just finished month 2. I would typically only have a handful of cysts o
