  1. Hey guys! I am becoming really worried about what is happening to my skin. I have been on the Acne.org regimen for 5 weeks. Every night, I seem to wake up with little red bumps. They are itchy at first, and when I itch them, they get bigger, more red, and inflamed. I have no idea what to do. I am afraid that the BP or Cleanser is triggering these bumps/rashes. I am also using the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water Cleanser before using the Acne.org cleanser. I would really be grateful if anyone
  2. Hi, I am a boy, 14. My acne started when I got KP on my arms in 4th grade. Around 6th grade, I started getting bumps on my chest I assumed were KP. For 2 years, I've tried facial acne cleansers, as well as body acne cleansers to get rid of them. I don't believe they are KP because they don't cluster like it does on my chest. So anyway, they're small red bumps. they arent white or blackheads, and almost seem like a rash. They have also worked their way on the upper, and middle sections of my ba

    Help With Cheek Acne

    Hi guys I need some help. So I have always been suffering from bumps on my cheek area for the longest time. Bumps where I could literally squeeze out white gunk out that would eventually become a pimple if not extracted. Over the years I've tried different things like topical antibiotics, oral antibiotics, retinols, bp, AHAs. But nothing seems to keep them away except facial extractions. Now I am on 10mg isotretinoin oral a day and they are starting to surface and havin a little initial breakout
  4. ok i just started getting acne and im freaking out , im 15 & never had acne before and i have oily skin i think im going to buy zinc for my skin but their un popable -_-
  5. First off, I am so sorry for constantly asking questions! I'm just kind of freaking out, because I've been reading too much... So, my derm prescribed me Differin 0.3 gel and Clindamycin for comedones and whiteheads on my forehead and cheeks. I am on my third week, and I have noticed a bit of an IB. Sadly, I haven't noticed any changes with the whiteheads/comedones, and I am really worried that the Differin won't help with those, because I've read many people saying that it didn't help them. I
  6. I can't identify what these bumps are. I've been trying to get rid of them for- no exaggeration-- 10 years now (I'm 21). I don't think they're scars because I got them before I ever got pimples. They can get more or (slightly) less prominent depending on what I put on them but they've never gone away entirely. These ONLY exist on my chin and don't exist anywhere else on my body. One derm said he thought it was closed comedones and maybe some milia but only prescribed differin and sent me on my w
  7. I’ve always had very clear skin but for about a year and a half now I’ve developed these red looking bumps on my face, they’re kind of raised, mostly flat, they don’t itch or anything and they don’t seem like pimples. It also seems like it’s undernesth my skin. Someone told me it’s the bacteria that causes acne on my face but they recommened me a $100+ product. I’ve switched my products time and time again, I use home remedies, they won’t go away. People tell me it could be due to stress? But I’

    Fall skin

    Does anyone else's skin get worse during the fall, particularly in the November month? Literally for the past 5 years, every November my skin is the worst, and then during the summer months it is perfectly clear. Anyone know how to specifically cure fall skin? My skin right now has a lot of annoying bumps, and a few annoying bigger pimples on my forehead
  9. So about a year ago my skin broke out in these tiny little bumps. Didnt look like pimples but when squeezed hard I could get something to come out. Went to the Derm and she gave me Retinol and Solodyn. Used the retinol religously for months, nothing happened. The bumps stayed. Eventually the bumps on my cheeks went away, but concentrated on my forehead. I eventually started BC and my face cleared beautifully. Had absolutely nothing wrong with. No blackheads, ZILCH. Fast foreward to 2 weeks a
  10. Hey everyone, I am mike I was taking accutane for a long period of time and stopped almost two months ago. Now Although I don't have Those red and painful pimple anymore, but there are a lot of these bumps on my face that are flesh coloured on They just won't go away. In the picture my face looks a bit oily, I think it's because I put moisturiser. My skin care routine is: In the morning, I use Cetaphil gentle face wash - then I put moisturiser and a sunscreen. At night, I wash
  11. Hey everyone, I've been getting these 'breakouts quite frequently. They just come up over night. Growing up I never had bad skin- now i do. I'm not on birth control, I haven't made an drastic changes to my diet. I cleanse, I exfoliate, I exercise.... Initially, it started on my chin a few months ago- maybe a year. Now I have these bumps on and off (more frequently now) on my chin, near my eyes. They're like under the skin, some come to the surface, others don't. Some of them don't

    Nose Acne/lesions

    Hello everyone. I've been examining my nose recently and have made the perhaps overdue decision to treat my skin better. If you take a look at the attached photos, you'll notice a few boxes with numbers; these are the areas I want to draw attention to. Box 1 depicts raised bumps that aren't quite the blackheads. When I contort my face in different expressions, the bumps move as if they were integrated in and with my skin, as if no underlying matter were beneath them. I would go so far a
  13. 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
  14. (sorry this is so long ><, links to all the products below) Hi, I've been dealing with my acne since the start of college. I live in the city now, which I reckon can't be good for the skin, but there's not much I can deal with lifestyle-wise. It's been three years and my skin is getting worse as time goes on. So here I am trying to piece together a new regime to follow through on and hopefully see results. As for my skin, pictures speak volumes. my forehead: tons, and i mean
  15. Hi my name is Arizona, i’m 17. I’ve had these very tiny (thousands it seems) of bumps on my forehead, around my nose, nose, chin, nose bridge, etc. I’ve tried everything. It looks so horrible, i don’t even take selfies anymore or any pictures close up to my face because it looks bad. it has really lowered my self esteem. I don’t have acne and i don’t get acne: it’s not acne, it’s just bumps. It’s not red white black or any specific color, they don’t hurt, i don’t pick at them, they’re just there

    Arm Breakouts??

    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone else gets arm breakouts? And I'm not talking about keratosis pilaris, I'm talking about inflamed, red bumps/spots on my arms that don't have a head, and don't itch. They pop up all the time and take 4 or 5 days to go away. The only way I can keep my arms slightly clear from this is by literally slathering AHA+ all over my arms every night before bed, which, after a while, can get pretty tedious and expensive, and even after that, I will still get a few of those
  17. I have combination skin, (oily in t-zone and dry on cheeks) I exfoliate twice a day, is that to much? my skin is so oily and even after applying an oil-free moisturiser after exfoliating ( I heard oily skin is due to over-excessively dry skin ) hence the moisturiser. I'm going to cut back to exfoliating once a day in the evening but what do I use in the morning?!?! I dont know wether I should buy a cleanser but I have no idea if that helps and what even is it? I would really appreciate some advi
  18. I've never had visible acne on my cheeks, I haven't had any active pimples on there! My cheeks look like there is acne scarring and there is under the skin bumps but the surface feels smooth, it's also quite red in that area people always think I've got sunburn there. Any ideas?
  19. I am 18 years old, I live on the east coast, and until 6 months ago I NEVER had problems with acne. Well never is a strong word, it was very rare for me to even have a pimple, most of those times being around/during menstruation. My complexion was fine, and I only used water and a clean cloth to wash my face, which I figured was working since my skin was clear. About 6 months ago I moved out of my parents house and rented a room from a friend. Chain of events left us with no AC for about a month
  20. its been there for at least 5 years.. its skin coloured and it doesnt really hurt or anything, nothing really comes out of it and its just skin... i also have some on my nose..can someone help me? how do i treat this?
  21. So ive been having acne for about 7 constant months now . i used to have perfect skin until recently i started breaking out on my forehead and no where else .

HELP i wash my face with black soap as of ri
  22. I had had clusters of flesh coloured bumps on my forehead for over a year, come and go. I have tried to research on this, and yet to come to a possible conclusion. I have been prescribed acne medications such as clindoxyl gel and retin-a cream to clear up my acne and my forehead with very temporary results, only for my forehead bumps to reappear in 3-4 months. My face for the most part is clear with the occasional hormonal breakout, but these bumps are constant. I eat very healthy and workout at
  23. hi, i am 15 and i have a really weird forehead texture which looks rough and there are tiny bumps. specifically, this only shows up in photos and looks far worse outdoors. for awhile i thought it was folliculitis and tried nizoral but that didn't work out too well. i've tried paula's choice bha as well however even after the purging period i would get random cysts on areas i'm not acne prone to. exfoliating somehow makes my skin have an even worse texture (palmer's brand) so i stopped doing that
  24. I have never broken out before in my life. What could be causing this and how do I fix it? Please help I feel so ugly and ashamed.
  25. 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
