  1. Hi guys, So I have found out that if I eat all sorts of chocolade, I get acne on and around my nose, which is fine by me (I stop eating it) I also noticed whenever I drink milk, I get acne on my chin. When I eat a protein bar, I get acne above my lip. These are all avoidable for me and I can live with it. But the problem is that I get persistent acne on my cheeks only! I am allergic to house dust mite, so I change my pillow cases and bed cases regurarly. They are not cysts or pi
  2. Please help. For over a year now I've been getting continuous breakouts on my RIGHT CHEEK ONLY. I'll have several pimples make their appearance at the same time which leave behind brown spots that remain long afterwards. The pimples have traveled from my chin to my upper cheek bone, mostly in clusters in my middle cheek and scattered around my upper cheek. They are both whiteheads and red bumps. I don't wear makeup or touch that side of my face or talk on the phone and I change my pillow cas
  3. Hi everyone. I've never had acne like this before in my life. The random cystic one around my period was normal for me. This past March I tried out OCM. My skin didn't respond well, was getting cysts on my cheeks. I stopped, only using water and a tea tree toner. Skin wasn't clearing up. I picked up "gentle" glycolic cleanser beginning of May and all of a sudden my skin FREAKED out. Tiny bumps all over my cheeks. I got in to see my derm May 20th. He prescribed me 500mg ampicillin 2x a da
  4. Hi everybody! Ive been dealing with a large amount of cheek acne for a little over a year and I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions in getting rid of it. I'm 23 and just started getting acne about a year ago. As a teenager I really only had a zit every once in a while. It's quite upsetting because it really makes me feel self conscious and insecure and I'm afraid that it will scar. It came out of no where so I don't really know the exact cause. In looking at
  5. Cure to cheek acne: breathing through the nose. Go on google and type: nose breathing vs mouth breathing, or anything about the too, and youll realise something as simple as your breathing can effect your acne (facial complexion). Also look up acne face mapping, and chinese face mapping for acne. Youll realise that it makes total sense, and the chemicals, lotions, creams and such are completely useless and harm the body. Its all a scam to make billions of dollars to support our bull**** governme
  6. Alright people, im an 18 year old male and over the last few years ive been dealing with moderate acne, i get the odd one in different places but i always seem to have a ton, on my CHEEKS. Primarily THE RIGHT cheek. I believe i have found the cure and it is so simple im dumbfounded. They say the cheeks ( on your face of course lol) primarily the right one, is correlated to your lungs. Ive noticed that im always breathing through the mouth, which is NOT healthy for lungs. Breathing throuh the n
  7. I'm 20 years old and I've had pretty normal skin most of my life, with a pimple here and there every once in a blue moon. However, back in January of 2012 but skin went on a crazy ride. I started breaking out everywhere. It was always very red, inflamed and ugly. I went to a derm and I didn't like what she put me on so I stopped. I went back to my old cleansing habits and a few months later my acne subsided. It would flare up every once in a while; but nothing like it did in January. Well this y
  8. So I just finished my freshman year at university and I'm home for summer break. I've always suffered from acne, but it was always a few blemishes here and there or a patch of blackheads on my nose. I was on a regimen about two years ago where I took antibiotics and used a medicated topical wash and moisturizer. It made my skin look great and my dermatologist said that I was free to use whatever face wash that I wished as long as it was oil controlling and that my moisturizer was non comedogenic
  9. I used to have severe breakouts about two years ago. I radically changed my diet and began working out, and I was happy and healthy and got rid of my acne. All of last year, my skin was clear. It felt amazing. At the end of summer 2013, I began noticing little breakouts. I thought they would go away. I wasn't eating very healthy and I was drinking though. When school started, I became more and more stressed and worked out less and less. I began breaking out, my skin began spiraling out of con
  10. I began using tretinoin 0.025% around mid-December and had a purge on the sides of my mouth and forehead about 1.5 weeks in (most of my acne before using tretinoin has been on my cheeks). Since then my skin has really been clearing up. I still got a few pimples here and there and with my period, but way better than before. However the other day I got a huge breakout over all over both of my cheeks of extremely small and red whiteheads. My skin looks worse now than before I was on tretinoin. I'm
  11. Hi! I'm Alanis. I started getting acne for the first time ever about a year and a half ago. I'm eighteen. When I first went to my doctor with the issue, I had pretty bad acne on my forehead, the upper cheeks under my eyes and by my nose, and chin. My doctor gave me doxycycline and epiduo. I was only given doxycycline for about a week and I'm using the stronger upiduo now. Since then my acne became under control. I became vegan, tried murad products, Paula's choice, Proactive moisturizer, (cetaph
  12. Hello, I was wondering if somebody can help me out with my acne. 24 Male White I have included some pictures of the acne. I've had this kind of acne since 2010. It was never huge acne, but it's getting to the point where my scars are adding up and I want to fix it soon. I've never had acne in in High School. I just got the usual pimp every now and then. But at the start of my 2nd year of college (age 19, year 2010), is when I started to get it, which I find odd. I only rea
  13. I've been struggling with acne for almost 5 years. I'm going to be 16 and want to feel beautiful any chance I get. My acne is disgusting. My cheeks are awful. They are covered in bright red pimples and purple scars from my bad habit of scratching and picking my pimples and zits. I can't be the only one who knows this. I never feel beautiful I'm so insecure and I hate my face because of my cheeks, forehead, and chin. They are completely covered and its awful. My skin is so oily I sometimes have c
  14. So my biggest problem figuring out right now are my cheeks my left cheek has what it looks like to be some pimples,and very fant red marks with bumps, my right cheek kind of came out of nowehere when I started smoking cigarettes for a short period of time which I have stopped doing 100% as it is just pointless and I feel like an idiot for ever doing it, my right cheek looks to have some minor scaring maybe rolling scars maybe or whatever, Keep in mind my cheek acne seems to be Cystic as it forms
  15. The image shows my current left cheek. Now, I have these frustrating red marks that arent exactly pimples/not bumpy but are just sort of kind of there. Some of these are marks left by previous acne but most of them never really developed into a full sized pimple and just have been lurking there below the surface in all their annoying red faced glory. Note: they're a lot redder than by what you can tell in the picture and it really takes a toll on my confidence. So. Here's my questio

  17. Hi! I've FINALLY decided to try the acne.org regimen and I'm starting my log today on DAY 1: Instructions: I know we are bombarded with information and sometimes, it takes too long to find what we are looking for. So here is what I will do: To make it easy for everyone to read my log, I will always post in purple, so you know it's me writting. Also, I vow to update this log multiple times a week. I will always include my emotion for the time of post. If I'm clearing it will be a smiley face.
  18. Hi everyone. I've been struggling with acne since August and I've really gotten to a point where I'm almost depressed by it. I hate leaving the house and I can't help but feel like everybody is disgusted by me. It's completely destroyed my confidence and I'm just so fed up with it. It somewhat comes and goes, but theres always at least 3 pimples- generally in the same spots. On my left and right cheeks and above my right eyebrow. I was using The Body Shop "Drops of light cleanser" follow
  19. In the past my acne wasn't that bad apart from a bad breakout around my temples in middle school. That all changed in the last few months, when my acne started getting really bad on my cheeks. My acne has never been this bad, in fact I used to never get acne on my cheeks in general. It's starting to get really painful too. My primary doctor (not a dermatologist, just a family doctor) prescribed me Benzoyl Peroxide gel and Clindamycin (a topical antibiotic) but hasn't helped. . I haven't changed
  20. Ok so i have had acne sense about 11, not as serious as it is now. Currently i am about 14 going onto 15. My acne in the last 4 months has gone from bad to worse and i can't take it anymore. It used to be just my chin and forehead, now it's all over my cheeks, at least 20 each cheek, i have tried 20+ prodoucts from the dermitoligest, over the counter, etc. Currently im using Arbonne clear Advantage and just started about a week ago. I am not sure it is going to work, but all i an do is hope. My

    Where my acne is the worst.. I can't even go out without make up on which I know probably makes it worse but I'm just so insecure about it.

  25. Left side of my face I have really bad acne on right side of my face ( I'm 15 and I really have to say that acne ruined my life. I lost my confidence when i have to make a presentation or just chatting with my friends, and i believe that my friends noticed that I've become more and more quiet recently.. Right now my biggest question is, WHAT is the type of acne on my right cheek? Could it be papules or just some red spots? And how exactly do I get rid of them? I have been usin
