    My Story, Advice needed!

    Hello everyone,Let me start by giving a quick summary of my acne. At around 15 I started getting the occasional pimple her and there, but never anything too serious. However, about two and a half years ago when I was 17 years old my acne worsened dramatically. Within a matter of a couple months of this first big breakout, it got to the point where I felt the need to see a dermatologist.My derma prescribed me a mixture of Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide. This helped to initially calm t
  2. Hi all, I’ve been reading lots on this site recently and it’s really helped me feel like I’m not alone in my struggle with acne as someone in their mid-twenties (25), though it feels like everyone around me has perfect skin and I never grew out of the teenage phase! I wondered if anyone has any good tips for products/regimes that have helped with extremely sensitive skin? To give you an idea, if I scratch/rub even the smallest area of my skin anywhere on my body, it will be bright red for a
  3. I continue to be cyst free! Since going off of Dianne 35 birth control 2 months ago I have noticed a couple of things; I am sweating more than I was and the odor is more potent however, my emotions are also much more stable and I've lost some weight. I also went up to 30mg a day about a month ago and I did notice a tiny push of black heads and a tiny back break out of little pimples. On 30mgs I have noticed lips are very dry and I got the cut in the side of my lips that is difficult to heal, it'
  4. Here are current pictures of my bare skin. I’m trying to keep positive because I can see improvement but it’s definitely not flawless like so many other reviews I’ve read. Maybe my expectations are crazy but I seriously want my skin to not have any blemishes. I am still getting under the skin zits on my forehead that do not go away unless I pop them. Then I’m left with terrible scabs, as you can see in the pic. And I still have these deep blackheads or something down on my chin that will not pur
  5. I figured I’d write an update since it’s been almost a month since I created this blog. I’ve been on Spiro since October 31, 2017. I am currently taking 100 mg at night before bed. I started the dosage out very low and have gradually increased but I have not seen much improvement in my skin. I would not call my acne severe... BUT it is very very persistent; all kinds of zits and pretty much all over my face to some degree. Being 32 years old I would assume my acne is hormonal but I do not get a

    Am I beyond hope?

    I'm new here, so apologies if I'm in the wrong forum — longtime lurker, but new poster. I've had hormonal acne since I was 16 or so, and though not terribly severe, it's deep cysts and they're persistent. After failures on topical retinoids and antibiotics, I had success on spiro and a medicated face wash with no topicals, but was weaned off of it since it was working well. Now, though, about a year off it, the acne is back in full force. I saw a new dermatologist last week, who told me that
  7. I have been using Tretinoin microsphere gel 0.1% and Minocycline 100mg (twice a day) for a couple of months now and I was on the acneeinstein.com website and the suggestion of taking zinc/Vitamin D3 pills was suggested. I wanted to ask and see if it was ok that I take these pills along with the medications that have been prescribed to me? thanks in advance.

    Day 983

    I can hardly believe that more than 2.5 years have passed since I started this blog. And guess what? My skin is still the same. In fact, it really doesn't look much different to how it did when I started (see pics below), which isn't much different to the years of bad skin I've had all my life. The thing with my skin now is that at 43 it is far, far too desiccated and dry to wear any kind of make-up or cover up, so I'm stuck with disgusting flaking spots and the whole world has to see them every
  9. Hi I am a 37 year old female suffering from adult acne! !!!! I never had a spot on my face till I was 35. I did have some on my back but it never really bothered me. Anyway I am taking tetralysal 300 once a day and dianette once a day for 9months. No break and my skin is perfect. Not one spot. I am coming off it in a month to give my body a break and I am just wondering if there is any success storys? I've had no side affects and would happily stay on them. Just worried about the internal aff
  10. Hi all, A little background of myself: I am 30 years old and I have been suffering from Severe to mild acne since i was 15 years old. My first time ever going to a dermatologist for medicine was about 2 years ago and he prescribed me epiduo with doxycycline and it took a year for my acne to clear up, but I never got rid of blemishes and some scars around my face. After I cleared up, I stopped using the medicine and I broke out again after 2 months and now I went to a different doctor and he in
  11. 20mg in the evening and 10mg in the morning. No longer taking Dianne 35 In a few days it will be 4 months since I have been on Accutane and yes, I am now among those that am saying it works amazing and I wish I would have went on it sooner or that the doctors would have suggested it sooner. Even though I was just breaking out with cysts on my chin, it had damaged my self-esteem so bad that there were many days that I turned down opportunities and activities because of the way I looked. I thoug

    Photos of my current skin

    This is hard for me to do but I want to be real and raw with this journey I’m on. So here are photos I took last night of my skin right after I got out of the shower. I’d say they’re fairly accurate but my skin/acne is always a bit more red and blotchy after I am in a hot shower. Some of the pimples were ones I picked at that you couldn’t even see but I knew they were there and it drives me crazy. I definitely need to be better at not picking and just letting them go. I know that all it does is

    The first 2 months

    This is going to be a very long first post because I’m going to go into detail of my whole acne experience. So I apologize in advance! Im not even sure anyone will be interested in reading this blog but I know for myself I have read a few other personal blogs on this site and they have encouraged me in this battle with acne. I’m a female, 32 years old and have had mild to moderate acne on and off since I was 13. In high school I had a few zits here and there but it was very mild and nothing t
  14. As the title says, I'm in dire straits thanks to nearly two decades of acne treatments. In case of TLDR, I was wondering (hoping, really) whether anyone else has been through years of harsh acne treatments and found a product, foodstuff or regimen of any sort that helped them recover fully or at least partially? Over 18 years and a gamut of registered physicians and dermatologists, I was prescribed, and thus took a crazy amount of acne treatments. I can't remember all of them, but several were

    Week 13

    Week 13 - Just this week I started doing 20mg at night and 10 in the morning every other day and 10mg at night and 10mg in the morning the rest of the days. I hope to be at 30mg everyday within the next 2weeks. So this was the first month that I was cyst free! It felt amazing to go through Christmas and New Years holidays with a cyst free face! I am not sure if my antibiotics from my kidney infection and then for after my surgery helped bring cyst free cause after being off of them for a wee

    60 Days of No Skin Picking

    I have dealt with acne for the past 4-5 years (I am now 25). My acne started when I went off my birth control. I know some people go back on it to fix their acne again, but I was didn’t want to use a band-aid and I knew one day I would want to have kids so I bit the bullet. The first 2-3 years I believe the acne was my hormones adjusting, but this past year and a half I don’t get anything cystic and I notice my breakouts get really annoying once I’ve been on a picking spree and squeezing all of

    Week 10

    Week 10- 20mg split dose, dianne 35 birth control, and antibiotics. I've had to add some antibiotics this week as I have another kidney infection. I go for surgery next week on my kidney but they say there should be no interaction with Accutane and I can continue on it as is. Despite skin being dry and fragile, it is doing really good; no cysts, but the next 2 weeks will be the true test. Only other symptoms this week are lips and eyes continue to be very dry.
  18. Hi all! Hope you are all enjoying the holidays! To Start; This is the first time posting in the forum but like many other people I've become fed up with trying different treatments without seeing results treating acne- especially on my neck. Before banging on about my acne I have included a great product (All natural) I now use on my seb derm at the bottom of this post which has worked wonders (Don't worry I have not been paid to promote etc It's just something which has really been amaz

    Week 9

    Week 9 - 20mg split dose and Dianne 35 So it's been 2 months since I've started on this journey. While I still have got a cyst every month, it is better than the multiple ones I was having every month. My complexion as a whole has improved and while I am still getting the occasional teeny tiny pimple, they are now often small enough or go away fast enough not to pick. The dry skin and lips is a constant battle, especially in this dry winter weather. The new products continue to help though. Oth

    Week 8

    Week 8 - 20mg split does and dianne-35 birth control pill I got so fed up with my dry skin that I got all new products. I got a serum and another intense moisturizer plus a very gentle exfoliator that I have been using when needed (usually every other day). I have noticed a big positive difference in my skin and it's too much of a coincidence with the new products. My skin is now more plump and soft and the tiny bumps went away. I have not noticed any breakout associated with moisturizing and
  21. I’m 26. I started breaking out when I 10 years old and now I’m 26 so that’s 16 years of bad skin. I’ve tried everything available. I’ve been on two rounds of Accutane and have been on Yasmin the past year but I’m still breaking out everywhere on my face and chest. I have heaps of blackheads on my nose and even get them on my arms. I am back on this site after I first joined 6 years ago to see if anyone can help me. I’ve tried vitamins, clean diets, all available skin products and everything i

    Back with an old friend!

    Hey lovely people. I joined acne.org 10 years ago under a different profile that I deleted after making this account in 2010. Needless to say I have been battling against acne for a long time. I am now 27 with two children and this year my world turned upside down with the break down of my marriage. My acne has been affected by this and more persistent than ever before. My picking has also been out of control. After exploring all other avenues I finally paid for a private derm and yes

    Week 6

    Week 6 -20mg split dose and dianne 35 birth control No new cysts! Definitely had spots that would have turned into cysts before but they were gone the next day. I'm hopeful this continues but scared to be hopeful because if I end up getting cysts again I will be devastated. It is quite interesting to see the changes in skin on a daily basis. A couple little spots pop up one day but are gone the next. My skin continues to be quite dry and flaky and so I have decided to very gently exfoliate ev

    8 months post antibiotics

    I have nothing to report....well, that is actually what this post is about. It's been 8 months since I finished my last course of antibiotics and with nightly use of Benzac benzoyl peroxide (only on my mouth & chin area) my skin has remained clear. I have had the occasional spot over the last 8 months but nothing big or distressing. The longest I've been able to go without antibiotics (in recent years) is just 4 months, so having doubled it is a big milestone. I *think* that the continued ni
  25. Hi all, I have had perfect skin all my life until I turned 39! Yes, I got older and spottier! I am 40 now and for the last year I have had red, rash like spots all over my cheeks and jawline. At certain times they are worse than others but they NEVER disappear! I have a healthy diet and exercise regularly. I have tried apple cider toner, tea tree oil, jojoba oil, raw honey masks and African black soap but nothing is working so far. Would love to find a natural remedy if possible. Can anyone hel
