  1. I'm enthusiastic because my skin is the clearest it has been in years. I have felt optimistic before - only to relapse - but I will share my thoughts now and then update in a few weeks. If I can go another 2 weeks with no new cysts then I will feel like I have conquered this disease. I'm an almost 30 year old male who has had moderate acne since puberty. For the past 8 years or so my acne has mostly been cystic, especially on my forehead, jawline and corners of my mouth. I have almost zero pr
  2. So, near the end of december I had a very stressful day at work and felt a cyst coming (and I have gotten cysts over the years, like one or two every couple months), over the course of the next few months I kept getting cystic acne along my jawline and under it. I kept going back to the dermatologist to get them injected and slathering on topicals. I eat very healthy, exercise. I ate a paleo diet for awhile, never tried going vegetarian but food doesn't seem to have much of an affect on my skin
  3. Hi everyone, I have been reading this forum for a while but only just joined. I felt I wanted to feedback into the forum as I've had some useful advice here and it's starting to work. First, I'll talk a little about my skin type. I've had both acne, and cysts since I was around 13. I've had an operation on my neck to remove a large cyst and have also had them on my groin..and spent much of my teenage years struggling to walk due to the pain! As an adult I've struggled with the same, howev
  4. Hi folks, I am beginning my third month of 100 mg spironalactone per day. I'm hoping it will kick in soon. I have read (in The Big Hormone Post) that coffee makes hormonal acne worse. In an effort to reduce my coffee intake, I hope to switch to mate, black tea, and green tea. I understand that avoiding caffeine altogether might be ideal, but this is not realistic for me. Has anyone experienced or read about an improvement upon switching from coffee to tea? Finally, has anyone found that
  5. Hi everyone, I have been using these forums for years to get ideas on how to cure my acne. Finally after 17 years of pimples at 33 i am proud to announce that i am acne free and feeling great. All I have to do now is let the scars fade. I will share how it happened. So I have combination skin which is dry and prone to black heads with hormonal breakouts around that time of month especially on the cheeks chin and around the temples. Theres been a few discussions on here as to wheth
  6. I've been eating healthily for a while now (and avoiding refined carbs, sugar, and dairy), but would sometimes still get the odd cystic spot or old spots would become re-inflamed again. It was really frustrating as I am so careful about food. However, I finally pinpointed it to coffee, with a really clear dose-dependent relationship. On the days I had over 200mg of caffeine my face was very inflamed by the evening. As soon as I quit coffee my skin calmed down massively and cleared up. After
  7. I decided to try this out since studying for finals is making my skin crazy. I have been drinking nothing but caffeine and I haven't slept more than 2 hours at a time since last friday, so my poor body is really taking a toll. On top of the extra stress and poor health, the season's change has been hard on my skin too. My lips have been extremely chapped and sore and my hands, arms, and legs are white with layers of dry skin. ick. I think I am going to purchase a humidifier to deal with this wi
  8. Hello, I'm a 17 years old guy. I've started having acne in my early twelves and it continually got worse until probably last year when it started to slowly disappear and eventually becoming a lot less severe, just the ocassional pimple here and there sometimes 2 or 3 but no cysts or giant red pimples like before, However, last week I had a few pimples, bigger than usual, appearing on my forehead, result of me going to a party and drinking a lot of sodas and eating too much junk food. Becuase of
  9. My acne is really bad and I'm sort of at a loss, nothing really helps. But I'm trying a new skincare routine and it seems to keep breakouts at bay, I'm gonna stick with it for a while. I'll be honest: I never used to drink water. Like ever. But—my skin was always fine until I was about 17. I'm 18 now so my acne's been really bad for like a year now and it makes me really depressed. Really, really depressed I'm sure yall on here understand that... It's all I think about when I'm talking to pe
