  1. Hi guys, need your advice. I've suffering with cystic acne for around 3 years. Checked my hormones - everything is normal, slightly high FSH. Otherwise it's all fine. But I still breakout in the middle of my cycle on my cheeks like crazy. I have a huge red mark on my right cheek now and I simply want to cry. I have done everything: natural approach, tcm, diet. Name it. I can't find the cause. I am also very slim because of dieting. Red somewhere that not enough fat in a body can cause hormon
  2. Hey guys, I just joined this forum so firstly, hello! Up until a few months ago I've suffered with red raw acne on my cheeks and jawline. I'm no longer a teenager (by a long shot!) so did some research and yes, I'm pretty sure I was a sufferer of adult acne. Luckily I have a wonderful friend in the states who recommended Paula's Choice to me, as she's been using their products for a long while to treat blackheads and the occasional breakout. At first I was a bit cynical about it all

  6. 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?

    Forehead acne out of control

    Hi. Well heres another acne story to add to the list. Being age 17 I suppose its to be expected, due to hormones and all, but my acne seems to have gotten out of control, especially in the forehead area, but now its appearing on the side of my face and cheeks, as the pictures show, along with the occasional bumps on my nose/chin (Yeah, I'm a mess). I've tried many products,primarily ones containing salyclic (?) acid and BP; I'm using one that is BP 10% now, been using it for roughly a month but

    Proactiv Plus

    I am 16 years old and i started my proactiv plus journey february 12, 2014. I thankfully never suffered through severe acne throughout my life. I usually got occasional pimples which started when i entered high school, which is normal for any teenage girl. Throughout my freshman and sophomore year in high school, my skin was normal, again had occasional pimples like any other teen, and it went away in a few days/weeks. (Also, i personally noticed i never had any breakouts or any acne during
  10. Hey does anyone know a slightly cheaper way to get rid of acne scarring? I used bha cause I had closed comedomes and my skin purged and got it all out onto my skin and it's almost cleared up except these little dots on my skin.. if anyone knows how to get rid of them please let me know.. that'd be amazing because they make me so insecure

    From the album: My Acne Scar Healing Process

    This was about 2 and a half weeks ago, where I had acne and was on my GP prescription of Duac Gel and an antibiotic. It took very long to start to function and my acne and scarring was blue and purple. It's disgusting. I guess the medication they prescribe in the UK is very mild and hardly ever make a difference, as opposed to the Indian medication which works wonders, however - does dry the skin out. I can smell bleach (Domestos) when I am applying the face wash which makes me very scared
  12. So I believe I have very sensitive skin. I had these tiny bumps on my forehead that I was given stievamycin and benzaclin gel for. I used these on my acne spots, however now my face is a terrible texture on my cheeks and forehead I used to have such smooth skin. I've been crying non stop I don't know what to do and don't know if it's permanent. Please help.. It's causing me a lot of distress bc I need to wear makeup but it only makes it looks worse. I can't stop crying because I don't know what

    Persisent Acne On Cheeks Only!

    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
  14. So prom is this weekend and my face, that's been uncooperative for the past year and that I expect not to clear up any time soon, isn't even as flat as I would care for it to be before I apply any make-up on. A little skin history; I've been using the Exposed Acne Kit since January and thinking that it'd help my skin out, it actually made all of my pimples surface which they mentioned was normal but went on for too long for me to stick with it after 5 weeks when it said results would come by the
  15. So I stopped tri-sprinted (birth control pill) about a year ago and since then, my skin has been out of control. Based off what I’ve read, I’m pretty certain it’s hormonal. It was good for a couple months, and then had been progressively getting worse. It’s also unlike any acne I’ve ever had before. The texture is really gross looking, small bumps, lots of blackheads. I don’t know what to do. I’m awaiting an appointment with a dermatologist, and in the meantime I am using Beauty counter cleanser
  16. My doctor put me on birth control (ortho-tricyclen) after my first period in middle school. Fast forward - clear skin for almost my entire life until I turn 19 and decide I don't need to be on synthetic hormones. Three months later, cystic acne all over my cheeks, jawline, and neck. Sound familiar? Straight away I go to the derm. Get put back on ortho-tri. I stayed on the ortho tri only to experience mediocre results, then moved onto yaz for three months which caused a literal facial explosion

    Acne On Cheeks Is Hormonal?

    I used to always have very mild acne on my forehead, but I NEVER had problems with my cheeks. But since this year, I started getting crazy acne on my cheeks and I heard that acne on the cheeks is caused by hormones? Is that true? If so, why?
  18. If you've done some reading on the treatments available for scarring, you probably would have come across horror stories; especially from laser. After all, its just nature to overestimate the odds of dreadful but infrequent events. And I'm ultimately, not rewarded for not taking any action. Somewhere in April, I've tried out dermarolling; which I'd seen slow but substantial results from. Strengthened by newer advances in technology, I'm glad that I've finally took the first step to solve my prim
  19. Hey everyone. I went to the derm. today and got a 25mg of Spironolactone and a prescription face wash. I am a little nervous to take the spironolactone, I didn't know it was a blood pressure med. I was told this wouldn't mess with me but I am kind of wigged out. Also, when I take this is there anything I should expect? If I stop taking it is it just going to come back if it works? I have so many questions! Please, if you have been on this please let me know how it is for you / any
  20. Hi guys. I'm fairly sure that my acne is caused by hormones. I broke out very suddenly at 18 when my PCOS was diagnosed (and also really beginning to give me problems in other areas too). My diet, exercise, enviroment etc has stayed the same as when I had clear skin, and my acne is always at it's worst during hormonal fluctuations (testosterone spikes and monthlies). The doctor that I saw told me that my spots were related to my PCOS. So, I already pretty much know the reason of my breakou

    Good Moisturizer?

    So I started breaking out pretty badly a few months ago (only on my cheeks) for no particular reason. I've been recently using a 3% benzoyl peroxide gel, a facial wash, and also got Retin A a short while ago. Now I'm most likely going to go on Accutane in about a month. The problem is that my cheeks are very dry and have been peeling like crazy. I only wash my face twice a day so as to not overdry it, and I have tried not using both medications at once to relieve dryness. Regardless, I'm still p
  22. First time posting.. I am new to blogging but have come here in hopes of finding other acne sufferers who can offer advice and perspective.. I am struggling. Quick background - I am 29 yr old female who started getting acne in high school after the depo-provera shot *Worst decision I have ever made* I only had the shot once but my skin hasn't been the same since. I have been using Proactiv for over 10 years since the shot! It really has worked for the most part, occasionally I would get a
  23. For the most part, I had mild acne for a few years ( I'm 16 now). I've always been decently active, and I eat okay.Then at the end of this school year in early June, I started breaking out like mad (I would classify it as moderate-severe), but only on my cheeks. The rest of my face would just be clear.I would get these small bumps that would turn into huge whiteheads over the course of a day. I got these in addition to the normal whiteheads that would just appear. I started taking a multivitamin
  24. Hi! I'm almost 14 and I've had issues with acne for a year as of december. I had perfect, flawless skin and then out of nowhere I got about 10 pimples on each cheek that varied on size and came and went for about 4 months and then I FINNALY got my skin back up to par and it was perfect again... that lasted for a month because I got spoilt, lazy and thought I didn't have to work on it anymore. A few tiny tiny tiny little bumps showed up on my right cheek I didn't care I thought it would go away

    Acne Never Goes Away

    I didn't have acne until I was a Junior in high school so I was about 15, now at 18 and in college my acne still hasn't gone away. Unlike most people I went to a dermatologist right away and he gave me topical erythromycin and told me to come back in a year. That cream did nothing. I went back to my next appointment and he gave me pills of erythromycin and again nothing, it did get a bit better though. I went back two months later and he gave me doxycycline it's been about two weeks now and it s
