  1. 4 Basic causes of Acne (and some types of Rosacea) - make sure your dermatologist tests you to verify which type you have. The treatment for each type is completely different. Correct diagnosis of the cause is important to clear the skin condition. Demodex skin mites are the most under-diagnosed cause of acne for people of all ages. Some more enlightened dermatologists will test for the mites. Many old school dermatologists were taught in school, that the mites were harmless. As such man

  3. In desperate need of any advice!! I had to stop taking birth control in November due to significant issues with depression, and my skin was doing pretty well up until 2-3 months ago when it started to all of a sudden become worse than it has ever been. I've been using 3% adapalene on my face in addition to Curology mix (azelaic acid, zinc pyrithione, clindamycin mix) and my face is NEARLY clear with only occasional breakouts on my jawline, which I can deal with. My face has never been so clea
  4. Last week, I noticed a red circular shaped spot on the side of my left breast which appeared to be a ringworm. I wasn't sure what it was but I just left it alone. However it wasn't long after that that I began to form red spots all over my stomach and some on my bikini line area. At first I thought I was just breaking out because I tend to get red spots on my body however considering the amount of them and the fact that it's accompanied by the red circular shaped spot on my boob, I think it is a
  5. From the album: Arm, Hand, and Finger Acne

    These were different pimples from the ones that I found on April 23, 2017. These were the ones that I found on June 19, 2017, and June 21, 2017, which had scabbed up. I picked at the one that I found on June 21st.
  6. From the album: Arm, Hand, and Finger Acne

    I found this pimple the underside of my left forearm - more than an inch from my left elbow crease. This was a different pimple from the ones that I found on May 6, 2017, May 11, 2017, and May 22, 2017.
  7. From the album: Arm, Hand, and Finger Acne

    I found this pimple on the underside of my right forearm - about 2 inches below my wrist. I also thought that I found an even smaller red spot about 1/4-inch away from it.

    I found this pimple on my right pinky finger. Before taking pictures, I trimmed the hair on the top of the bump for a better view.

  10. From the album: Arm, Hand, and Finger Acne

    I found this pimple – or some type of bump – on my right hand in the early morning. I tried to pop it – although I wasn't sure if I was successful or not. This was how it looked almost 17 hours later.
  11. From the album: My "Personal" Acne System

    Heres the acne solutions cleansing bar for face and body. The online retail price is $17. its a nice mild scentless cleanser which is great and isnt too harsh on your skin! i make a lather with the cleanser and apply it on my face gently rubbing for 10 seconds and rinse off. i start rinsing with warm water and gradually make the water colder to help close pores and to calm and cool my skin. i use this twice a day, when i wake up and before i go to sleep.
  12. I've read posts on this site for a long time, but I finally caved in and made an account so I could make my own post. I have no one else to vent to that would understand, so I'm just going to rant for a bit about the horrible effect acne has had on my life. I started breaking out before I was even a teenager, I was around 12. It started out as just a few spots here and there on my face, but it got so much worse. I am now 19 and have it literally EVERYWHERE. I have it on my chest, my sh
  13. Hi Everyone, So I typed up a long message, but the site refreshed and deleted everything... In summary: 24 year old asian male acne since teen years (used ProActiv and worked but trying to go holistic route) tried many things: vitamins, Probiotics, cleanses strict diet: no dairy, no sugar, low-carb, lots of veges, fruits, omega 3s acne in face (jawline, chin, upper lip), chest, neck (cystic type), back (though recently has started to disappear but check acne still t
  14. How do you cope with acne? Because i feel like i cant take this no more. Im 25 years old, ive had acne for the past 13 years, ive tried almost every solution out there, drugs and all. Its supposed to be hormonal acne, but even with treatment my skin still breaks out, and i start to pick at it and it turns into a full on disaster. I try to cover it with foundation but you can still see it. I cant stand going out knowing people are looking at it and judging, im ashamed of my face, i cant stand it
  15. hello, so I've been using the regimen on my face and body for 3 and half weeks. I know that skin peeling off is normal but I don't think that what im dealing with is normal.. I think I burned myself with BP! because the skin peeling off looks exactly like when you get burnt (you know the dark spots) here's some pictures. please tell me how to get rid of the burns without scarring because i once burned myself with a shaving cream chemical thingy and it scarred! thank youuu
  16. i started ortho tri cyclen almost 3 months ago for my acne. i had taken yaz for years before with great results but had to switch after insurance issues. my skin has seemed to keep getting worse (a lot more deep pimples, mostly on my cheeks and around my mouth) since starting the OTC, but I don't know if that's the cause. I deal with dermatillomania so my skin also reflects how well I'm doing with the picking at the moment. Everyone says to give it time, but how long do I have to wait until I ca
  17. This is an adult personal question. I am very curious about this action... Can sperm or masturbation fluid helps with acne? If after you well ejaculate or let it all out into your hands and then rub them on your face all over and leave it there? The story all began at my job. When I got serious moderate to severe case of acne... I worked at a Resturant. Two hispanic kitchen staffs told me that I should use sperm on my face to make acne go away... They made those ejaculation gestures then rub
  18. I am a gay 22 year old male. I've had nodular acne for about 10 years now. Its come to a point in my life now that it has become a hindrance for alot of things in my life. As a young gay male, you want to go out be seen and have fun...not as in being scandalous. I can't wear certain clothing out because it'll show what's covering my body. I have them on my chest, back, hips, and minimal on my neck and glutes. I can't help it but envy alot of the other gay guys :/ being able to be comfortable wit
  19. Hi, i'm 14 and I've struggled with body acne for around 2 years. I feel like it's ruining my life. I can't wear any of the clothes I'd like to wear, especially dresses and tank tops, and I can't go swimming. I wash my skin in the morning and take a shower at night because I have hockey every day in the afternoon. I use the bp and then moisturize. It's working a little I guess but I want to be able to finally be confident and wear a dress to this dance coming up. Can i have some help? Does anyone
  20. Alright, so I am 15 and have had this chest acne for about a year, it started off as nothing but then grew into something really bad.

  21. Hey there, i am on my 2nd month of accutane and i have been getting this odd rash all over my body.. First it started on my forearms and then it popped out on my calves, thighs, and back. I asked my derm at my monthly appointment and she said its just "accutane rash" and that some moisuturizer will make it fade. I have been taking aveeno oat baths every night, moisturizing after every shower and it seems in no way going away at all. Now heres a twist, a few months ago i had a similiar rash and w
  22. What Is the Difference Between Skin on the Face and Skin on the Body?

    The skin on the face and body differ in two key areas: Anatomy: Skin consists of three layers, the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis, and differences between facial skin and bodily skin are present in each of these layers. Skin care: Caring for the skin on your face requires a gentler regimen while skin on the body can normally handle a more aggressive regimen. Let's have a look at how the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis differ between the face...

  25. Why Do People Get Acne Mostly on the Face and Upper Body?
