  1. I have been taking isotretinoin in a relatively low dosage for almost four months. The breakouts seem to have stopped, I hope they won't return. However, my nose is full of blackheads, and milia don't seem to go away either. Can I expect those to be helped, or it's almost sure that if so far it hasn't worked for them, I will not in the future either.
  2. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  3. A few months back, I saw a blackhead on my cheek and tried to pop it (I know it's stupid to pop it but.. oh well), but nothing came out. It became red and swell by a little. At first I thought that the redness and swelling will be gone very quickly but it didn't!! For the first few days, the red bump actually hurts whenever i touch it, but it doesn't hurt as much after a few weeks. The bump (which look like a pimple) has been on my face for a few months already and it did not go away.. :'( My
  4. So, I'm trying to figure out what's in my pores so I can maybe figure out what's going on with my skin. I have these flesh-colored bumps alllll over my face that NEVER go away and make my skin feel like sandpaper. Exfoliating doesn't work, steaming my face doesn't work, nothing seems to work! I can actually squeeze out what's in them, usually. I put my finger nail on one side of the bump and push straight down into my skin, and the force of my nail going down pushes what's IN it OUT. It
  5. I'm only 15 yrs old and in the last couple of months I've been getting very blotchy uneven skin tone and texture, it's gotten to the point that I don't ever feel comfortable showing my bare face to anyone. whenever I touch and feel my cheeks it feels very rough and sandpaper like (it seems to be a blackhead problem, not quite sure) also the same problem in my inbetween the brow area. in my forehead and in the rest of my face I have really weird cluster of TINY tiny bumps that is barely noticeabl
  6. i was looking for spas to go to get a facial (blackhead/clogged pores extractions) and i came across an aveda brand facial for acne. i know they make acne/skin products but i did't know they have a specialized treatment available in spas. anyways, has anyone got an AVEDA FACIAL from a spa before? i'm pretty sure it's the same kind of facial at everyone location though how the person does it might differ.. just want some opinions because i'm thinking of getting it. thanks!
  7. Hey, i was on accutane for 4 months , finished 3 months ago, i was clear but i could sense some pimples slowly formings, and had really small breakout. i saw my derm and asked for a second course to be sure nothing push surface again. i had this on my first course too and even after but never really asked myself the question. when i do efforts or sports or are in a hot place, my skin become red, normal, but like little blackhead come to surface everytime and i can just wipe them off wit
  8. Okay so my acne like zits wise isn't a huge issue, pretty minor. But my black an white heads and my open pores are INSANE. On my nose, I have hundreds and hundreds of clogged pores (black heads) and if they're not clogged they are WIDE open. It looks absolutely disgusting. Beside my nose, under my eyes and beside my cheeks are hundreds of open pores as well. It's very disgusting as well. My forehead has tons of white heads and pores that are clogged but they don't look like black heads. Like
  9. i've had severe acne since i was 10, i'm currently 14, turning 15 in february. my main problem is blackheads, my face is barely red and my scars are fading by themselves quite quickly. my blackheads are so bad, it looks like i have freckles, and they irritate me so much. i've tried everything; blackhead scrubs, pore strips, diy masks (egg mask, glue, ect), steaming, hydrogen peroxide, and even squeezing (which i know is bad, but i was so desperate.) does anyone have ANY suggestions for getting
  10. hello I need help very bad ive been trying to find this out for years and I always looked for someone to ask this question so I can see the answer but nobody has ever asked. I got prescribed retin a and hydroquinone 4 percent and I used retin a for a year I am acne free but I have so much hyperpigmation and acne scars it looks like I still have acne. I never used the hydroquinone when it was prescribed because I never knew how I though that if applied to normal skin it will lighten as well so it
  11. Hello everyone. So, I have a problem with my skin and it's that I have these little colourless bumps on my face. At first it was only on my forehead, but now it's also on my cheeks and on my chin. It looks really bad in certain light, especially in bathroom light and in the sun and also in pictures, which makes me really self conscious (I have linked a picture). I really hope some of you can help me with what it is and how I can get rid rid of it!
  12. I have black heads on my nose and chin and I hate them. They make my pores look large and of corse I want to have beautiful skin like everyone else. So I was wondering what other people used to get rid of them. Right now I am doing a mostly natural and chemical free routine with my face and it is actually working well for all but my blackheads. I was hoping someone would be able to suggest a more natural product for these blemishes. Thanks for your help
  13. Hi, So I just got over having a very large what I think was a cystic pimple it popped and came out very nicely and has reduced a lot in size over the past 24 hours. Now, right below that spot, is a similar red decently large small red bump. When I push on it with my tongue it's like all clear in my skin and seems like there's something behind it. Very similar to the one I just got rid of. But the difference with this one is that there is a tiny black dot on the top. So I'm guessing it must b
  14. Helooooooooo. Title says all. Please read v_v My acnes don't hurt at ALL. I can't even squeeze them when I try to, I was just making sure and I'm not someone who squeeze their acnes and bleed (I don't have that kind of acne anyway -.-). They are small and pinkish-red. Some of them maybe are whiteheads. I have oily and sensitive skin, and everytime after I do sports they get more oilier and shiny and more pinkish red face. They are often or sometimes itchy yet I try not to touch them. The on
  15. Hello Acne.org, For a long time now I've been struggling with acne, as most of us here are. It started once puberty kicked in, and now here I am, 17, about to be 18 in March 25th. Most of my pustules and whathaveyou don't appear anymore and my main problem now is blackheads, and the occasional pustules that I become oh so tempted to squeeze, which then of course turn into blemishes that seem to last forever. Forever being around 2 to 3 weeks. But its annoying. I want to put a stop to it. But
  16. Hi all. I am new to the forums, so hello! I, like many, if not all of you have suffered from acne. However, this post is about a rather slightly different topic. Any help of any sort will be much appreciated! For about a year, there has been a little what seemed like a blackhead trapped underneath my epidermis. I think it resulted from a full blown pimple that I avoided touching, but I can't quite remember since it has been so long. It has been sort of a hard bump on my cheek that for some
  17. Tried some skin care products in High school but never really stuck with them. I never used any skin care on my face towards the end of High school (upperclassmen days). When I started getting self-conscious about my face I went to Wal-Mart and bought a Neutrogena face wash and the first time I used it it peeled my face off (above my cheek) so I returned that. The second face wash I used was MD formulations facial cleanser(12% Glycolic Compound), started using it and noticed my face would get re
  18. Ive been battling acne since I was about 13 and now im 19. It seems to be calming down but I now have scarring and blackheads/clogged pores..

  19. Hello! My name is sam(male) and i'm fifteen years old and from england. I suffer from moderate acne (only whiteheads, i dont tend to get cysts/blackheads) and red bumps im not sure the exact term. When i was slightly younger (14ish) i started to get mild acne, a few at a time which quickly became moderate acne. At that time i got it primarily on my chin and upper lip, but i also got it on my temple, nose and forhead aswell as in between my eyes. I also got it quite harshly on my back and shoul
  20. I'm new to this site so I apologise if this post is in the wrong place I've been suffering from moderate acne since I was about 11, 6 years on and it's getting worse with age rather than better. I suffer from pus-filled spots near enough every other day (gross, sorry) and I have large bumps under the skin constantly where new spots are forming. I have terrible blackheads on my chin and nose, and a couple of whiteheads. My problem is mostly my chin and nose. My forehead is completely fine, wit
  21. This is my first post here... I simply have questions about Isotretinoin, such as Accutain. Aside from the side affects, which I am aware of, how well has it worked on people with moderate acne? I would love to hear from people who have had experiences. A little information about myself... -I am a 16 year old male. -I have extremely oily skin. -My problems are your average pimple and blackheads... a lot of blackheads. I would love feedback from people who have used and/or are on a medicine su

  23. How bad is my acne? Most of what's in that picture is just red marks of a bad breakout (worst in a while) I had about a week ago. I've had it since I was like 15, I just turned 20. I've basically used Dan's regimen since I first had it, but haven't used his products. I've tried Proactive, Acne Free, Salicylic acid, I've also tried doing nothing at all, thought I was the cause, and I still broke out just the same as if I did something. Also tried Differin. Never been to a derm, although I'm cont

  25. Hey guys, I just wanted go ask a few questions regarding extractions. I went to this place that does extractions, but unfortunately they kinda bruised my face even thought they advertise that they would not and I am left with a lot of dark spots from them popping my pimples whereas if I left them alone they wouldn't leaave such a dark mark. I don't mind extracting blackheads but I believe you should not extract inflamed. Pimples, but they seem to think popping them is better or else they will l
