  1. For me, one of the worst parts of suffering from adult acne (moderate and sometimes, pretty darn gnarly) is the anxiety and pain associated with low self-esteem. I NEVER leave the house without makeup, and have a minor panic attack when camping, traveling, or sleep-overs are involved in my plans (how will I wash my face? Will people see me without my makeup? I'll have to get up at 5 am to get ready, just so no one will see my bare skin...). I also model, and you can imagine how hard it is to see
  2. okay so i have had fairly clear skin all my life until the age of 16. my acne got really bad when i started a new school (mental health based) and i saw so many girls with makeup. some complimented my skin so as a way to keep up with that i started using face products (which i never did in my 16 years of life). i think using face products really *sorry or the language* fucked up my face. may be that, or it may not be. my face is really bad now and i cry everyday. i don't want to go to school any
  3. Someone please help! I am so desperate… Ill give you a brief history of my acne story. I started getting one or two pimples in 6th grade and its progressed as I got older. At the time they were small and easy to cover up with powder. Towards the end of 8th grade I woke up one day with a patch of pimples down my cheek.. I thought it was a rash.. So that basically began the struggle I have till this day a Senior in high school. My acne is different from lots of pimples because a lot of ti

  5. Hey! My dark spots are beginning to fade. They are still very noticeable, but I do see the improvement. I have two new pimples on my right cheek. A couple that are beginning to go away on my forehead and no active ones on my left cheek. I still have the same side effects, in addition to some new ones. My face and lips are still dry and my scalp is still itchy and flakey (although I got Selsun blue for flakey scalp, so hopefully that helps.) One of my new side effects is that I have a

    Temptation

    So I picked the near-corner-of-mouth spot...it was hurting quite a lot and needed to relieve some of the pressure, I then looked at the rest of my skin and avoided picking the ominous bump above my eyebrow but apparently couldn't resist a little comedone that was jutting out of my forehead. 2 spots...I can deal with that - not great but not a disaster. Also luckily I think the comedone was ready because the dot left behind is so tiny that I haven't even bothered with concealer. However after
  7. Hi there to whoever will read this! im almost a 21 years old female suffering from acne of my face, back and chest. I have been dealing with this problem for the past 5-6 years and it has become increasingly unbearable for me to deal with it. During my teen years, my acne did not effect my mental health that much. However I am in college now and earlier this year, I had a flare up which led to significant damage to my self esteem and symptoms of intense depression. I'm currently using adapalen
  8. Ok so idk if anyone will care to read this but Hii! if you’re on here I’m assuming you’re going through a similarly hard time and I wish you the best and hope you find what works for you soon! ok backstory I have had acne since I was 13, I have it on my face (rarely on my cheeks though), and on my back and chest (though I am better at dealing with that for some reason) after years I came to the realization my acne was hormonal. I get painful “blind pimples” and whit heads, the worst of it i
  9. Hi fellow humans. I would just like to share my thoughts on Accutane and tell a little bit about my experience on it so hopefully I can help any others considering taking it! I've been off of accutane for a little over 3 years now. I pursued taking accutane because I was dealing with a moderate amount of cystic acne on my face at the time (mainly in cheek pockets and on my forehead). My main goal was to take it, deal with whatever side effects that came with it, and get rid of my acne for good
  10. So I have been dealing with acne for a few years now it was ver mild at first just on my forehead and chin it came and went I was never all the bothered about it , until January this year it started getting worse I developeped acne all along my cheeks and my chin and forehead flared up , I soon realised it was to do with my hormones I went see my doctor but the cream and antibiotics they subscribed didn't help i a man now trying to fix it naturally with a herbalist. For the past couple months i
  11. Hi, I'm currently having a lot of trouble with my skin and I though it could be good for my mental health to discuss of my recent struggles with people that can actually understand what I'm going through. English isn't my mother language so forgive me if there is some mistakes in my sentence's structure I was on the contraceptive pill since I'm 14 years old. I began with Alesse but it wasn't strong enough for me to make my periods regular. I switched to Yaz and I never had any problems wi
  12. Hello everyone. I have been on epiduo, the oral antibiotic solodyn, and clindamycin phosphate lotion for about three and a half weeks now after a massive stress breakout, and my fourth week follow up with my dermatologist is in a few days. I'm so upset because I had relatively clear skin before I went through one of the most stressful weeks in my life, and afterwards I was left with a face full of cysts, white heads, and angry red pimples all over my cheeks and chin. I have seen seen some improv
  13. I will never sympathize with cancer patients or people who have HIV/AIDS or diabetes etc. They get all these charities and donations and support and I get stared at like a freak. After years of anxiety humiliation and bullying nothing will ever change my mind about this. I couldn't care less about them while we get nothing
  14. Just saw my reflection when I wad outside. Daylight makes it look a lot worse. The sad part is, I guess, that's the real and true lighting since you'll be able to see your face clearly. I wake up with a rapid heart beat thinking if my scars had gotten worse or if i have a new zit which will leave a scar as well. Background - I'm taking my 2nd course of accutane and I'm almost done with my 5th month. My 1st course was way back in 2013, I only had dry lips and it didn't cause any scarring. This
  15. So to start this off, I have had acne for about 4 years, at the start it wasn't so bad it was only mild acne. Things started getting progressively worse when I started freshman year, by winter it looked like I just came back from a war and had gotten the Bubonic plague too. People made fun of me and all the time in the hallways I would hear "go use proactive " "that's what a 1/10 looks like" "Don't you ever wash your face" "what's wrong with him" then March rolled around and it started to
  16. My acne brought me to the point of near suicide. I was at my wits end. I felt hideous. Gross. Disgusting. Unwanted. Hopeless. Miserable. It caused me to have panic attacks and anxiety now, finally I have gotten all of this under control and am living my life like a normal human being for the most part. Is my skin perfect? No. Is my emotional state 100% stable all the time? Definitely not. But I am coping and I want to help others know that they're not alone so I've started to d
  17. Okay guys so i've had acne for quite a while now. I started getting pimples since around 7th grade, and I've gone to dermatologist two times but failure overtime. My acne is not severe but its definitely taken a huge toll on me. I feel stupid at how i can't resist having a but of acne, i try everyday to have hope and see the bright side but its honestly hard. I definitely retain myself from living a social life because of this. So, i am soo ready to try to get rid of this and live my life to ful
  18. Hello everyone, former acne sufferer here, I'm 29 now, and I've been having problems with acne ever since I was 16 or so. Irony was it started getting worse after my teen years, and worse. to this day, although I don't break out anymore, the scars are very much there and visible (one of the reasons I started wearing a beard). Nothing I can do about my forehead, though . I started getting better when I made small changes in my diet (less sugar, no fried stuff etc); much more complex than th
  19. 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
  20. Hello, Well I've recently researched a LOT about nicotine, cigarettes, and ecigs affect on insulin levels and blood glucose levels and relation to acne. However in my experience, I've noticed less "cystic" acne when I used to smoke regular cigarettes(10-12 a day), and when I quit, I got MAJOR constipation and lots of cystic acne around my jawline and chin and cheeks. I switched to ecigs, and use 12mg nicotine juice and notice that my constipation is controlled, but my acne isn't clearing up.
  21. So I’ve had acne since I can remember, about 12 years old. I’m a 22 year old female college student and STILL suffering from acne. After having mild/moderate acne and trying a bunch of OTC stuff like proactive, I started seeing a dermatologist when I was 14. At this point I began having moderate cystic breakouts on the chin and cheeks, as well as blackheads and whiteheads. Over the course of seeing 5 dermatologists I had been put on various BP creams, salicylic acid, retin-a, numerous antibi
  22. Has anyone ever had breakouts while on an SSRI, and/or has anyone ever had the reverse effect and it helped make them less worried about there skin maybe causing less breakouts? I have anxiety enough to be prescribed Zoloft, but the thought of taking it makes me anxious as well! Thanks everyone! PS This is my first post, I hope it's in the right section! God bless
  23. I really don't know who else to turn to at this point, I usually don't go to forums but I feel like I need to seek out people with similar situation like mine. Sorry for the run on sentence. I've been dealing with a lot of depression and anxiety due to my acne. Throughout high school and my sophmore year of college I had FLAWLESS skin, yes I would get the occassional spot but nothing bad. Now, it has gotten worse, I have seen a dermatologist and he prescribed me Ziania along with doxscycline and
  24. I have some questions regarding hormonal acne and the use of Yasmin and Spironolactone.. Hopefully this won't be too long-winded and lengthy.. Has anyone here had luck with replacing Yasmin with spironolactone to treat their (adult) hormonal acne? I don't want to be on Yasmin anymore because I believe that hormonal birth control leaves me with anxiety issues, I also experienced this on the NuvaRing as well. I am 26 and have PCOS which I believe is the root cause of my acne, so I need to be on
  25. Hi, my name is PJ, I'm 24, and I've had severe acne and anxiety for the past 10 years, since I was 14. I've been documenting my healing journey on YouTube for the past 9 months. - http://www.youtube.com/user/HolisticHealthJ - I want to share my story with the acne.org community. If you're a person who feels like you've done everything to try and cure your acne, you've tried all the creams and topicals, you eat really healthy, you get sunshine, you exercise, you do all the things the health guru'
