  1. What are the best essential oils for moderate to severe acne breakouts? Which ones worked best for you? How much did they cost? where did you buy them? so on and so forth. Lets put our heads together and find some solutions. I should have added that I like Tea Tree Oil.
  2. I started taking Absorica 2 months ago and love how my face feels bc it's not oily anymore and my face keeps getting smoother. But a boil like zit popped up on my cheek a week ago and was wondering if anybody else has experienced this.
  3. Hi everyone! I am a 20 year old female who never had acne before my sophomore year in college. Then the summer of my sophomore year, I suddenly started getting very large red bumps on my forehead that could not be popped and were painful to squeeze. Squeezing them only resulted in a water-like liquid oozing out. I get them in waves of 5, wait for them to heal, only to have 5 more pop up on my forehead before the previous wave completely disappears. This has been going on for two years. I hav

    back break out

    I have been on the higher dose of 60mgs for a week. My back has well and truly had a break out. I have around 18 large and painful cysts/boils. They really hurt and my bra also irritates them. . I don't think I could go to work with out one on.... not very professional! But I know they will clear and the shit that is in my skin has to come out. The texture of my skin is still super soft and smooth, despite the boils. I have a couple on my neck too, so hair is worn down and scarves are a great a
  5. I have been dealing with acne since I was about 14. I used to just get the odd spots in random places across my face until I was 17 I started to get bad acne on my right cheek and up my jawline on my right cheek. My skin is extremely oily and it is very difficult to control my oil levels as within an hour after washing my face my skin is back to being excessively oily. I have very large pores on the area of my face at the sides of my nose. I am getting bad under the skin boils on this area very
  6. About a week ago [around last wednesday ~13/14 th February ] i noticed an horrendous boil/cyst type thing near my ear / sideburn area - wasn't very visible because of sideburn but large and nasty. Similar to one i got just after Xmas - around new years eve. I have gone on to have a few more similar ones on different parts of face. All in all face has been as bad as it ever has been in the past. Around a week ago ]15/16th Feb] had terrible breakout in scalp, luckily hid by hair. Back and

    Bad Acne

    Hi all! I suffered from really bad boils and spots on the back of my head around 3 months ago so my GP put me on lymocycline for 3 months. Problem sorted, not! My prescription ended around 3 days ago and the boils have came back twice as bad! I can't sleep at night as it's too painful to put my head on a pillow. My doctor put me back on lymocycline for a month to see how it plays out but I fear it will not clear up :/ any suggestions on how to sleep with acne? Thanks

    Boils/huge Pustules Whatever

    The reason I am posting this in this section is because I find people in this part of the forum more helpful and responsive. Anyways, ever since I stopped taking minocycline after 10 months, I have been getting these boils that are filled with pus. So first they are just bumps that you can feel, but then they come to head and get filled with pus and blood and rupture. They stay around for like 10 days before they start healing and takes a total of 2-3 weeks to go away. I got them between my l

    How I Cured My Acne

    WHAT I DID I CURED MY ACNE BY GIVING UP ALL FORMS OF SUGAR. Nothing sweet, including all FRUIT, all DRINKS and all DESSERTS, ever pass my lips. I eat extra vegetables to get my vitamins. I exercise, moderately. I sunbathe. I drink a lot of water, swilling each mouthful to get mouth enzymes into my gut, to convince it that it's eaten. I fast to keep my blood sugar down. I bath with a teacup cup of malt vinegar in the water. I wash my clothes with a detergent measure of

    Forehead acne...

    Hi everyone, Hope you all had a good Easter! I'm new to this forum and I am just looking for a bit of advice for acne that I have on my forehead. I am a 24 year old male and I have been suffering from forehead acne all of my adult life. I never used to let it trouble me too much much, but as I'm getting a bit older and moving away from my teenager years it's starting to bother me and affect my confidence...

    i need advice asap

    My skin is usually pretty good, but over the past few months I've been breaking out with these awful spots that are like under the skin pimples, but also have a white head(picture below). They only form on my chin and right under my nose. They are GIANT and I have no clue how to treat them. I've tried salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, but nothing is helping. I could really use some advice on how to treat them and stop new ones from forming.
  12. A quick overview of the last few months: prescribed Lymecycline for worsening moderate acne beginning of Feb. Ever since then I've had awful cystic acne.(never had this before) Doctor told me to stick with it for 3 months. I wish I hadn't. Finally off those god awful tablets but have 4 very inflamed, very painful, very red and very LARGE cysts on my face. They have been active for weeks, two of them over a month. Nothing I do seems to help. They are most probably infected- doc prescribed flucl
  13. ●●●●●Sex Stimulants Cause Pimples & Ugly Scars●●●●● There are millions of people in the world who are chronic sufferers of pimples, which disfigure their faces and make them look ugly. Thousands of young people become so desperate and depressed due to the ugliness caused by acne that they even think of committing suicide. Abstinence from sex and the retention of semen for long periods in their bodies by young men can cause or increase the pimples and boils in
  14. I have had this problem ever since I started college back in 2013. I get these swollen lumps under the skin of my forehead, and they CAN BE, but aren't usually painful to the touch. I had to grow a beard in order to correct the crap on my neck and jawline. That worked like a charm If i get lucky, I can squeeze them, and a long rod of cheese like stuff comes out of them followed by a plug and clotted blood. They heal in about 3-4 days... There's usually a little
  15. I hope my experience can help someone. I have been suffering from severe butt acne for about 8 years. Tried benzoyl peroxide lotion, soaking in salt water, iodine, different acne creams, retinol - A, coconut oil, avoiding some foods ( milk, coffee, oil) - nothing worked. Some time ago I was searching some new information about the subject and came across someone saying that usually people who sit a lot get butt acne. So I thought that maybe long time pressure on the butt causes ingrown hair
