  2. Hello everyone! I am writing out of complete desperation. I have never felt this way about myself and I don't know what to do. I'm hoping someone on here will help. I've never had perfect skin. I've always had pimples that would come and go and I didn't have a problem with that. This past May I got a serious bf (I'm 26) so I went to the gyno to get birth control. She put me on avion and all hell broke lose. I would get big cystic pimples and nodules all the time. At first I thought it was mayb
  3. Hey guys, long time no speak. I can't believe it's been nearly 6 months since I posted on here. So I want to get straight into it. Here's an updated skin routine then I'll go into some details, some things have changed some haven't.

  4. So I’ve had acne from the ages of 16 to 30, and found some success with benzoyl peroxide soaps, and nothing but stomach troubles from two different kinds of antibiotics. Anyway, I noticed my skin would dramatically improve during the week or two I spent at the beach every summer. Something about the cool water and sunlight. So I did some research and figured out that both using cold water and light have great track records at clearing up skin. Here’s a blog post explaining the idea behind cold s
  5. I will give you my background so you know what I've tried. I could really use advice. I have higher-than-average testosterone in my blood based on blood tests but have never been diagnosed with PCOS. I have had cystic acne from age 15 onward. I'm in my late 29s now. I've had a rhinoplasty involving a nasal implant and suspect it changed my body chemistry because moderate to severe hormonal acne got more severe after that surgery. That said, in the last years I have tried the following: 1) A
  6. I have always had stubborn acne, however in the last four months I've been getting a lot of acne on my neck. My dermatologist gave me differin and cliniderm and it has not helped my acne at all, it's next to impossible to see her. No matter what I do i wake up with more acne on my neck. I use baby dove, I use cheer laundry detergent (which I've never had an issue with) and I take allergy pills. Anyone know how to fix this? I've tried everything, I've tried using nothing and my skin is getting wo

    Hello, This is my first post. I joined this community to seek advice on my acne situation. I've very sensitive skin and am prone to picking at it. I'm now 27 years old and am embarrassed to still be dealing with this issue. Last week I started using Foxbrim products like their Vitamin C and Peptide Complex Serum and I thought it was helping, however, my father recommended that I see a dermatologist (again) yesterday. Needless to say, my confidence was severely deflated. Dermatologists hav
  8. Before you read this, know that you are not alone! Acne is the most common skin disease in the world. It' so great that you are researching ways to help cure your acne but remember to always be kind to yourself. It won't go away overnight but IT WILL GO AWAY. I promise you. Keep up your routine and know that everyone is rooting for you! I have always had acne prone skin with minor break outs. Suddenly at age 25 I got hit pretty hard with hormonal cystic acne which resided mostly in my chin/jaw
  9. I'm 26, female and my skin sucks. When I was a teenager I had bad skin, I went on birth control and after trying many different kinds and after some time my skin was a lot better. It was great. At 22, I got off the pill because I didn't think it was very healthy being on it for so long. And about a year after being off the pill my skin got horrible. Hormonal acne, and just general clogged pores and what have you. I eat a plant based diet--I avoid soy for the most part, I also try to eat mo
  10. I appreciate this has probably been posted a million times but I can't find a recent post about this. Acne/Med History I have always suffered with hormonal acne which was controlled for many many years by Dianette. I was taken off Dianne due to mental health issues and put on several different antibiotics (lymecycline/minocycline). After doubling the dose the doctor gave me, my acne was 'manageable' but I then developed loads of tiny spots all over my forehead (which I had never experienced be
  11. Happy Friday! Starting Accutane in a couple of weeks. I am 25, female, 130lbs. I thought I would outline my struggle with acne so far (seriously, I am OUTLINING it, I could write pages about this) ...so let me backtrack.... I had your typical teenager acne, with plenty of tiny inflamed whiteheads mainly on my forehead. A trip to the derm and some low dose Retin-A and problem solved! From about 14-19 my face was mostly clear, with very few spots around that time of the month and a few blackhead
  12. Hi everyone, Probably you are tired of posts entitled 'how I cured/cleared acne for good', but I didn't come up with a better title for my intervention in this forum. What I want to share is really what effectively cleared my skin and you may use it as a reference for your own skincare. A brief context for my acne: I started having acne some months before my menstruation (12 years old) and the only thing throughout 18 years that controlled my acne was contraceptive pill (never did accutane).
  13. I have been following the regimen for 1 year and have found great success, until summer started. I anticipated this as I spend a lot of time outdoors and emailed acne.org for sunscren recommendations. No reply. So feeling confident bc I have the regimen as a tool, used my kids sunscreen.. it was labeled for face..great! Well, huge pimple soon followed and many small ones to come. Then went camping for a week and didn't want to deal with regimen since I was getting pimples anyway. Way worse. Even
  14. Hello All, So most of my life i have never really had any problems with acne, however for the past year or so i have been struggling with it on my forehead. I have been on creams, face washes, etc for quite awhile and have recently tried lemon juice overnight (however to no real improvement). I am very active which includes working out & running or doing something of that nature everyday and being outside. I have gotten into the habit of washing my face with dove (facial soap) everyda
  15. So I've lurked the site for some time now, however I this is my first time posting. Bear with me, this might be long. I'm 26 and am losing my mind due to my skin. I had perfect skin all throughout my teen years. Once I hit 21-22, it was like all hell broke loose on my face. Granted, it is not as bad as some, but I have made it worse. Compulsive picking and trying to "fix" my face have left my face scarred and red-marked all over. I have anxiety and I know that it doesn't help my picking proble
  16. I want to start off by saying I am a 21 year old female. I have NEVER had a problem with acne before. As a teenager I might have had a couple zits here and there but never full blown acne. I started the depo shot when I was 20 after being on it for 9 months I noticed really bad breakouts that would come and go. My doctor said to try one more cycle (1 shot, 3 months) to see if it would go away. The acne got worse at the end of the three months I decided I HAD to do something else. He put me on qu
  17. Hi All, I am 31 years old and have been suffering from Adult Acne for the last year- ever since I went off of my birth control pill and had a Copper IUD put in. When I was on BC my skin was effortlessly perfect for years, and since then I almost always have 3-4 spots including cysts that take forever to heal. I've tried mandelic acid peels and tee tree oil, both of which worked in the beginning and then stopped. I am getting married in 6 months and desperately want to stop this acne. I am goin
  18. I feel like my 12 year struggle with acne is almost over and I'm ecstatic! So I wanted to share with everyone what I found that has worked for me and may help others as well. I had a hormonal test done via ZRT laboratories earlier this year. It is a saliva test that you do at a certain time of your cycle to get the best idea of where your hormone levels are at. My results showed very low estrogen and progesterone levels. I also had high levels of bad estrogen. I started on progesterone cream
  19. Hey Guys, Veteran member here. Ive been battling acne since I was a teen, cant remember how young now. I've had 2 courses of accutane and tried numerous topicals. Around 26-27 yrs of age, my acne became very mild and manageable. I've just had my first child, and my skin has steadily gone downhill since giving birth. I am 11 months post-partum and my skin looks the worst it ever has. Over the last 6 months i have tried proactiv, PC BHA 2%, PC BHA 4%, (no BP as this is too damaging to m
  20. I'm near my mid thirties and for the first time in my life I have bacne. I've always had mild-moderate acne on my face but never on my back, and to a lesser extent my chest. I've never had acne look like this either. Each pimple has a large radiating redness, and the whiteheads are both huge and bubble outwards (think bubble wrap). I don't want to pick at it, and I can't reach it, making bras, shoulder bags, a firm back pat, etc. both dangerous and painful. I've had a few blouses ruined already.

  22. hi there ! I'm kind of at a loss at what to do about my acne, I feel like I've tried everythung but nothing is a constant fix. I'm a 23 yr old female. my face is super clear on my forehead, cheeks, and t zone. but my chin is a DISASTER. I am on birth control (so I'm sure this is hormonal for the most part). I'll currently have 2 large deep spots on my lower chin, and about 5 small whiteheads that are very tiny but are in clusters on each side of my chin. I started with BP a month ago, it ha
  23. So...I started breaking out again about a week and half ago, so approximately 6 weeks after finishing the course of antibiotics. Urgh! What gives? I had a small cluster of cystic-type acne on the left side of my chin (always the left side!) and one under my left nostril. The cluster is healing now (but still red and lumpy) and the one under my nose is smaller than it was, but still a visible lump. I am more than a little worried that another lump is forming in the cluster area. It is not to
  24. Hello, I am curious to know how to tell if your have Acne due to to much bad estrogen or if it is caused by to much testosterone. I know a hormone test would obviosuly tell you the answers but unfortunately i can not afford those. I am looking to seek a treatment but i don't want to use a testosterone booster if my acne is caused by to much testosterone. How can you tell? I have super oily skin - but im italian and always have also my sex drive is kinda low but thats mainly because i dont fe
  25. I'm 30 years old and have had extremely clear skin my entire life. About 3 months ago, overnight it seems, my left cheek broke out in a flushed patch of red bumps. The bumps come and go and move around, sometimes I have whiteheads and sometimes just red bumps, and some days that cheek is redder than other days, but the whole thing is still completely isolated to only my left cheek. I tried every acne face wash and product on the market- nothing helped. After googling, I pretty much diagnosed mys
