  1. ... In the zoomed in picture there is still some redness, which is actually good news. The redness indicates that there is still some healing left to be done. I believe your skin will improve vastly within the next year or so, don't try to mess with it too much right now. Maybe just apply makeup and be patient. When the redness has subsided, it may be time to take some action. But I really believe you should leave it alone and not do anything too invasive. Just keep your skin clear, and do
  2. I had a jessner peel done by a dermatologist, paid a lot for it, he only did a few layers and still now like 4months later i have a spot or patch on my face about 1/2 an inch big that is red again tacey you will def regret it if you pull off the skin, take as much time possible off of work and leave your face alone, I wish you the best...good luck.
  3. Bro, take care of your active acne, clear up your face/get rid of your redness and your face will look fine. who cares if you have some scars. You can def improve the way your scars look but try clearing up your face before you worry about your scars... I ran into the same problem, I cleared up my skin maybe 80 percent with the regimen, then I started treating my scarring so I broke out again got new redmarks/scars so now I am not treating scarring at all and just focusing on clearing my face
  4. NO NO NO, I had a Jessner peel done... it looked pretty much the same as your skin DO NOT TAKE SHOWERS AND WASH YOUR FACE !!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE AT ALL, IF YOU ARE APPLYING THE CREAMS BE VERRYYYYY GENTLE YOU WILL SCAR REALLY BADLY IF YOU PEEL OFF ANY SKIN THAT IS NOT READY TO BE PEELED OFF< DO NOT PULL OFF ANY SKIN LET IT FALL OF BY ITSELF DO NOT SCRUB AND NO HOT SHOWERS< HARDLY WASH YOUR FACE Im telling you, if you derm didnt tell you this already, he/she is stupid because yo

There are 3 tiny blood spots on top of the "cyst' and I dont know what to do... I want to get the blood out, or atleast find a way to make it absorb... Any way to make it form a head or any tips any products? any ideas? anyone??? Thankksss..
  6. I know bro, I am right there with you... I wish no one had to go through any pain from anything, whether it is a disease, losing a loved one, or even batttling acne. But the sad truth is that life is filled with things we do not understand and things that often bring us down. Tonight I was with my ex-girl friend, we were hanging out watching a movie, she hadnt seen me in a month or so...and I turned on the lights at the end of the movie... as she stood up and I was looking away I could see h
  7. Anyone have any tips for draining this thing? Its really driving me crazy and i have a feeling that it wont heal until I get it out of my skin...its really close to the surface but there is no head or anything...Should I apply anything or could I do anything to bring it to some sort of head or make it easier to drain?? thanks..
  8. so you guys think its just blood, cause I can def feel something under my skin... the weird part is that it feels like its coming closer to the surface,.. I should just leave it alone? or will I eventually have to drain the blood?
  9. I have had a cyst under my skin for almost 6 weeks... I got some of the junk out 6 weeks ago, and then let it heal...it turned black and seemed to go deeper into my skin. I saw the derm meanwhile and he said that it would go away on its own.. but it hasn't it doesnt extend out of the surface that much but I can feel it, and its a big black spot that wont go away how can I bring this THING to a head... Ive used the following on it.. BP, AHA lotion, tazorac... any ideas? I want to pop it b
  10. Can Tazorac Gel .1 percent help with scarring at all? I have a lot of shallow scarring, mostly like potholes on my face. My derm put me on Tazorac, and said it should help? Anyone have any success with Tazorac for scars? It is a strong retinoid, thats about all i know about it. He also put me on Vit C cream, said to use tazorac then apply vit c cream...
  11. possible allergic reaction to a food? whenever I out of no where get zits its usually related to something I ate the previous days. IE recently I had a few zits that I am sure came from a couple of days of eating a lot of chocolate.
  12. I saw that episode, its all makeup..when they were taking pictures of them it looked good, but they got one close shot with the camera and you could see all the acne with coverup caked on
  13. herpes simplex 1? not joking or trying to be mean.
  14. thanks mahway0k, I used a blow dryer on low heat for 30 seconds, actually worked perfectly
