  1. Okay I’m 22 years old and have had persistent cheek acne for 3 years... I’m allergic to accutane so that is not an option. I’ve gotten laser treatments as well. Please help! Also how long did it take for people to notice change when they changed their diets?
  2. I managed to avoid eating any biscuits yesterday night, even though they were lying temptingly on the sideboard. No new acne when I woke up this morning - hurrah! - but on the downside I picked at my left cheek yesterday, so woke up to a huge inflamed lump. Not a pretty sight. I also remembered to do a sea-salt mask this morning, which I should do more often - it doesn't prevent spots coming, but seem to help dry everything up and take the inflammation down. I am currently on two cups of gree
  3. Okay so I just signed up on acne.org to make myself feel better and get some advice on this tragic thing i did for my face, because I really feel like trash right now. So last week. I was looking at the mirror, close up, at my blemishes. I have this problem where I will start picking at the smallest thing on my face because im so afraid of pimples. I pick on three pimples on my cheek. All got inflamed. Throughout the week i tried putting mask, benzoyl peroxide, baking soda, etc. Two of them went
  4. So I have this huge cyst on my cheek. About the size of a dime and a dark red. It's hard and literally not getting flat. I don't know what else to do to make it get smaller and go away. I do get it often. It's always one at a time and in different spots of my face. They last for months. It's becoming very embarrassing, especially people asking me what it is. Any help on how to make it heal fast??? personal experiences??? I have been to a derm before for a previous cyst and they never offer to gi
  5. hello, I have been battling trying to rid my cheek of these stubborn spots since a bad breakout back in November. although they have faded noticeably using just a saclictic acid scrub, I just started using a light glycolic acid mask some nights, as well as bentonite clay. They seem to be helping. However, I have a dermatologist appointment in 15 days and I am curious about bleaching methods. Does anyone here with fair caucasian but not porcelain-like skin have any experience with products like

  11. So two weeks ago I got 2 painless red bumps on my cheeks. They do not hurt and they start off really red. They feel really hard to the touch. What could these be? The skin on top peels off every night but they aren't getting much smaller and appear to have no fluid in them. Should I get a cortisone shot? Help!!! Sick of seeing and feeling these ugly things!
  12. Hey guys! For over a year now, I have had a small-medium patch of tiny little bumps (almost like white heads) and darker pigmented skin in the area on my cheek! The reason I've only started worrying now, is because it seems to have spread on to my other cheek (refer to 2nd photo) and ignore my lil bit of peach fuzz in photos! The patch is not painful, or itchy, it's just kind of there! I tried apple cider vinegar and betamethasone, toothpaste, the whole nine yards. If anyone has any suggestions
  13. The rest of my face is pretty clear except for my left cheek which has dark scar spots from the acne. (Btw does anyone know if this is a specific type of scarring? Hyperpigmentation??) Any natural methods for tackling this..? (I heard olive oil at night is good... Also apple cider vinegar? Raw Aloe Vera leaf?) For my bacne I've started using Nautrogena Body clear body wash... What can I use with it? Is iodized sea salt water okay to use? I don't have non-iodized.. :c also benzoyl peroxide on
  14. Hello. Over the last few months I've gained moderate to severe acne just on my cheeks. I'm fifteen years old male and this is devastating my social life, I quit my job and have isolated myself for the entire summer. I can't even go out without a hoodie on. I've tried every different kind of topical treatment and nothing works. So I found out about the link between diet & acne. I've been gluten free for 3 weeks because I thought that was my trigger. No results. For the last four days I've
  15. does anyone else also feel that "real scars" look nicer than acne scars. I feel like acne scars make me look sick or something - btw I have them in the cheek. I hate are the bumpy texture and would rather a straight scar
  16. are these red marks if not what are they? Please help
  17. Hi, I have these small bumps all over my face and I really want to know how to get rid of them! I saw my GP and she prescribed me tetracycline, which i just finished, and Benzaclin. I've been using the benzaclin for a couple of weeks already but i haven't been seeing that many changes... Please help....
  18. Where my left cheek meets the side of my nose is where I know have a whopping cyst. It started about a week ago as just an irritated part of my skin with no bump, however now it is a full blown cyst which makes my nose look very swollen. Normally I would have had a cortisone shot as I was able to schedule multiple derm appointments, however it just so happens that I had to get a new insurance plan and I am still waiting for my id card to be mailed, therefore there is nothing I can do. Insura
  19. Hi. I am 14 years old and I have moderate acne on my face, back and chest. I'm using Duac, a special shower gel and oral tablets and since seeing a dermatologist, my skin is getting better. However, I have a white raised spot on my cheek and I have no clue what it is. I'm 95% sure its not 'milia' and doubt it is a white head as there is no redness around it and it's a little too big to be one. I have had one of these spots on the other side of my face before and I although it
  20. 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
  21. Hey all. I am in my late 20's- Female- I started breaking out BAD about 2 years ago. Only on my chin cheeks and jawline, which I always read is hormonal. But its not just around that time of the month, its always. I have tons a hard cystic acne, rarely ever coming to a head, now scarring (and I don't pick) and leaving marks behind. It's MOSTLY on my left cheek and I wash my pillow cases, and clean my phone all the time. I've tried everything from Expensive brands, cheap brands,
  22. Hello all! I'm new to this forum but, I would really like some help with my skin. So, really quickly about my skin's background.... I have dry to normal skin and have never had a problem with acne until sophomore year of highschool. I would get one large cyst once a week or so and then it just started to snowball. At that point I had tried lots of scripts such as; Differin, Acanya, clindamycen. When I was a freshman in college I finally decided to see the dermatologist again in frustration beca
  23. I took Accutane 4 years ago. After two years, my acne returned in full force. I was getting cystic acne just like before. I fell back into the cycle of taking antibiotics (minocycline, doxycycline, etc) but I knew that wasn't a permanent solution. I was even considering a second round of Accutane. After seeing how clear my skin could be with the first round of Accutane, I just wanted to have clear skin again! It had been such a blessing not having to think about the blemishes on my face. When yo
  24. Help!! My skin has erupted in loads of spots whiteheads and cysts as well as loads of little bumps with lots of redness. I used to have isolated chin acne (it was no where else) Even my cheeks were super clear- I feel like I’ve tried absolutely everything from natural remedies to creams and topical treatments right now I’m using the neutragena clearing face wash and the Liz Earle moisturiser and toner and I occasionally use the Barnier pure active face mask. I feel like I’m at the point where I’
