  1. Good for a positive thread:) I'm 30 soon suffered from acne on and off since I was 19. Now it does not define you. I've accepted i may always have some degree of acne. I'll keep fighting it. But there are worse things to have in life believe me. I don't come here often as I think its a negative forum overall. The only way to deal with this is to keep I ing your life and keep fighting your acne. It can be done. It does not define you, it defines you if you let it.
  2. HI Lore, Sorry for the late reply...Had a really bad week myself with the acne actually and gone into my old ways of obessing in mirrros picking etc:(...starting a new job next week too and I cannot let it ruin me!. It takes at least 8 weeks for my mediciation to begin to work and im on week 7 so trying to be more postive. I have made a log in a diary so I can keep up with how long ive been on my treatment. My next step iof this fails is to try soemthing called theraclear treatment. And failing
  3. The key is to treat it while living with it... Easier said than done
  4. Hi been following this. I don't usually comment on here now. But let me tell you a bit about my story. I'm 29, 30 thisyear from the uk like you. I've suffered from acne since i was 18 Abliet on and off as for a few months it disappeared. Right now I would class my self as mild acne, I have a number of blocked pores and a couple of wee pimples on my cheek. I cannot go on accutane and I'm currently into my 7 week of limecycline and blue light treatment with some topicals. I believe my acne is cau
  5. I feel I need to wade in to this argument. Im 29 years old I have had acne now since I was 18, to varying degrees from severe to virtually non existent. Currently it is flaring up making me feel miserable self conscious etc. It is a shit feeling no doubt about that I wont lie, I wish for nothing more than for my break out to calm down.I very much agree that acne can make you feel bad and self esteem low. I feel like that right at the moment. However I will say that it is true there are plenty of
  6. Crap crap crap having been dealing with this for well over ten years and having it ruin alot of my life and get progressively worse for me this year..well dont know what to do anymore:(
  7. Keep going man you look like your improving alot. Ive suffered from mild to moderate acne for ten years now and im seriously thinking about going on the tane and i really appreciate everyone who has the guts to put pictures up and share there stories
  8. I know what I mean but you have to remeber people with "clear skin" will often be unhappy with certain faults. I for one would rather have acne than be balding or going grey which alot of my friends as that for me is worse than my mild acne.
  9. Thank you for taking the time to reply. It sucks doesn't it to put it bluntly?. When did you start having acne? I was around 18 and in my first year of uni when i started breaking out badly. Ive had periods where ive been virtually clear but then it always returned with my cheeks being the main problem area. Its so depressing I definalty think its making me miss out on some of the good things in life. Ive altered my regimen a little over the past week or so but yes i do need to do something more
  10. I Was feeling quite positive yesterday but honestly today I want to give up:(. I have been sleeping for 12-13 hours a day and have not wanted to wake up. My face has been breaking out like crazy especially on the right side:(. On Thursday my skin was ok now its look awful. I have been dealing with this for 10 years now. I'm due to be prescribed accutane but im terrified of more bad breakouts and i really dont know if mentally I have the strength to deal with my skin getting even worse:( feel tot

  13. Hi there ive posted a few times before. Im 28 years old and have suffered from acne for 10 years in varying degrees of severity. Next Thursday I have an appointment with a dermatologists and have the option of taking accutane due to my acne unresponsiveness. Im very tied with this a really good friend of mine has taken accutane and she is now clear. I have been suffering emotionally for a long while now due to the fact it simply wont go away. My current regimen is SA wash in the morning recently
  14. What dose will you be on spartan? im breaking out that a bitch at the moment:( and im scared that when i go on tane its only going get much worse. im going ask the derm if its ok to spot treat i guess with the bp Though my derm told me with my level of acne which is mild she would be very surprised if I got a huge flare up and if you look at proper statistical data it only happens in about 30 percent of people most who have severe acne (ie lots of stuff under the skin) im jsut like you scared
  15. Hi there Spartan I feel your pain. Im now 28 years of age and I have suffered from Acne mild to severe from 18-28 years of age. Im currently using products that do to some extent suppress my acne but im always breaking out with small pustules in the same places and I have a lot of red marks. It has ruined my life to a large extent and I will be commencing accutane treatment in January. I think there's a lot of negativity about the drug on here yes but as the poster above mentioned im sure there'
