    QUESTION: Question for the guys out there. I know you aren't supposed to pop/pick whiteheads while on Accutane (because of scaring). But, what do you do when shaving? I have to keep a clean shaven face for work. Of course when I shave, the white heads break open...pretty gross, I know! LOL Just wondering if anyone has advice for shaving the face while on Accutane..?? PS. this Accutane journey kinda sucks..haha but hey I guess it will all be worth it! (better be!) staying positive
  3. Let me start off by saying hello. Quick Intro Ok, this is going to seem crazy but bare with me. I won't drag this out but I have come to the realization that I am never going to have normal/perfect skin. It has been a uphill battle for a few years now and it has taken me to some extreme lows I never though I could imagine. I suffer from both kprf and rosacea, mixed in with some acne on my nose and texture damage in some places due to the $1000's of dollars worth of treatments I have trie

    It Begins Now

    I begin this journey now. And all I can hear in my head are the words that Frodo says to Sam; words Bilbo told him years before, "Its a dangerous business, going out your door. If you don't watch where you step there's no telling where you may go." I think that these words may be quite appropriate to heed as I begin my own journey. To begin; I have terrible OCD, a diagnosis made alongside of ADHD and Depression. I am in control of my ADHD and depression through the use of medication and the us
  5. I am 23 year old slim white English male. This is my first very post on this acne forum so I have yet to share my personal experience about about why I am here. Before I decide to go about that, I feel a positive thing is to share my experience with acne and how I cleared it up so well. So I will just clarify, at that in this point in time my acne is the best it has ever been since before I even started getting it. I am really happy with how my overall skin looks. So here it goes. I used to th
  6. Hello! So I’m an 18 year old female and weighing 115 llbs and I’ve been on 60mg of accutane for three months. Im ending my 4th month of treatment in 2 weeks and my skin is still horrible! I don’t have the typical dry skin that everyone complains about but I do have horrible eczema. That’s about it for the side effects. During my last derm appointment they said that I wasn’t improving and so they switched me from Claravis to Absorica. So it’s been a month of Absorica and the only thing I’ve notic
  7. From some of my post here some of you will know I did not develop acne until 24 years old and I have been dealing with it the past 6 years. I had clear skin up until then. I just thought the previous few days that it might be caused by parasites. So I did a google search and it does appear a side affect to parasites can be acne. Has anyone done a parasite cleansing and liver cleansing after and been cured of acne? I generally worry about doing body cleanses as they can do more harm to your bo
  8. Hi Guys, Hope you are all well....Just be grateful if anyone could recommend any dermatologists in the south west area...been trying to search google and the web cant really seem to find much on it. Be grateful for any advice. thanks
  9. I need help here and I don't feel comfortable talking to anyone about this in person. everytime I give into masturbation whether it be once or a whole bunch of times like last week. 7 days ago. I did it about ten times... the next day I got oily inflammed acne riddled skin . I'm a very lazy person by default. but after masturbating I find that rigorous daily exercise and healthy diet is the only way to fast recover the affects of horomones ? and bad skin. I want to know if anyone el
  10. Hi Ive been dealing with mild to bad acne since 11 (i'm now 17), around summer of last year I started my first course of accutane which was 20mg a day + Augmentin Antibiotics. I didnt suffer from any initial breakout and my skin was barely reacting to it until about month 4 when i started to see progress. There was barely any drawbacks except for my body aches and dry lips. After about 6 months of it I moved countries and stopped taking it. I returned back home later and started college, poss
  11. Hi, heres my story i guess, when i was 14 i got REALLY BAD ACNE ( cyts ), like litreally out of nowhere, i took acctuae and the acne went and honestly i never grow acne again expect for the occisonal pimple which goes fast, the only problem here is, it left my skin looking bad and with many red marks, at first i thought they were hyperpigmentation but theyve been there for almost 2 years now, anyways today i had a derm appoiment and he booked a filler for next week, but not sure if i should get
  12. so my face has certainly healed a lot in terms of acne lesions themselves since last year. It can be due to hormones, aging, diet, water-intake, greens-intake, or something else. I dont even know but i do get a LOT less acne marks. But I still seem to have the dark marks as shown int hepictures. Also, yo ucan tell some parts fo my skin seem oily and others seem rough. The sides of my noses are ALWAYS red and have little blackheads. It's almost like theres veins showing too but i doubt they are v
  13. When I was 12 years old I first started getting acne and during high school it actually wasn't as bad as it is now. Back then it definitely was more than the normal girl my age but it was nothing in comparison to how my skin is now. I will confess that yes I did pop and pick at them then and now I am left with a face that no amount of makeup will cover. I bartended for years, most of the time working 10+ hour shifts wreaking havoc on my body. Most people don't understand that when you work in b
  14. Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone can give any good tips on how to approach night shift (I do 12 hour shift for 2 weeks every six weeks, than 2 weeks Days shift) - Just wondering how i can stop blemishes from appearing and my skin to stop becoming oily. thanks in advance.
  15. Try me once and I might let you go. Accutane felt like that, it was a gamble, a gamble that some win at and some lose at. Some walk away scotch free and others paid a toll. I was one of the unfortunate ones that did have to pay a price but I don't regret taking Accutane one bit. It was a miracle drug for me at the time. That's all I wanted to say about Accutane. I been wanting to do an update on here for a while now. So here I am! It's kinda sad how people will come on here when they are firs
  16. Hi everybody! I'm a 19 near old Caucasian male living in the UK that has problems with skin in general. I'll keep this short and sweet. Ever since about a year ago, my skin has changed for the worse. I used to have oily skin that looked quite nice and was easy to maintain with products that are good to cleanse and clean skin. Well, here lies the dilemma. About one year ago my skin turned from oily to dry in a month, i guess. It refused the regime i was on, which was the acne. org cleans
