  1. Mandelic Acid did not work for me. Glycolic Acid worked better for me. Everytime I put Mandelic on it basically covers my skin with a substance that feels like its hiding all my bumps. I know that they are still there because I see them. Another thing is that I scrub my skin to get the dirt off me when I shower. I have done this for my whole life. Using Mandelic, its layer is soo stubborn it wont let me clean the dirt off. Its really fustrating because I dont feel clean.
  2. There is still some PUS in there, either go to an esthetician to get it removed or get another shot to kill it for good.
  3. I feel your pain. Honestly, the best thing to do is go see a really good derm and esthetician. No matter what people say on here it is really hard to give someone a regimen and think that it will work for everybody. If I could recommend anything, Extractions + Peels (Facials), and Vivant Exfol A + BP 5%. That has done wonders for me. I have severe acne last year. I tried keeping my routines normal because I thought it was a flare up. That only made things worse because things just pro
  4. Hi, My derm charges 65+ a visit even if its one shot and I can't afford that now but these Nodules hurt badly. So I am hoping someone can refer me to someone who can administer a cortisone shot in the Bay Area, preferably in the East Bay that charges maybe 15 or so a shot. Thanks, AV
  5. My best friend has had acne all his life. Until he hooked up with his gf and they do you know what, at least once a week and now he is clear. Lucky Bastard!!!!
  6. I started with them last week, I am finishing up my second week. To be honest, I don't know how good they are but I am desperate. I did go to a derm but BP didn't work for me and I sure as hell didn't want to use Retin A and go through the breakout. When you first see them they will test products on you to see which concentrations of products you can handle. They change it up every 2 weeks when you see them. This correlates with your wallet as well because you need to buy their products.
  7. If I squeeze them I tend to get a red mark or scar that goes away in 1.5 Months. Even after squeezing they come back in other spots. Picking ans squeezing is a bad thing. I learned this the hard way. Many people have told me not to but I did it anyway. My face is now scar'd and my skin doesn't have that smooth texture it once had. Because of that, my urge to pick is gone. I have been pick free for about 3 weeks. Currently I am going to Face Reality, a place where Willow(moderator) w
  8. Hi, I am a 22 year old guy and have been suffering from Acne for a year now. By the time I hit 21 all hell broke loose for no reason. Anyway, I had tons of zits on my face and I gave ProActiv a try. Well to my surprise it got rid of my zits very fast BUT I started noticing that after I used it I started having these white dots that are embedded on my skin now for over 4 months. They are not bumps and they are soft. I give them a little squeeze and the contents come out like a white string
  9. I have uploaded a photo. Any suggestions to cure this would be a godsend. Things are going bad for me, I know have comodones on my forehead.... T_T
