  1. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  2. So my dermatologist has had me on Epiduo Forte and Solodyn for 13 days now, and it's been working great for my acne (cystic and closed comedones). Backstory: my forehead had been the worst the areas since 6 months ago when this all started. So all the products/treatments I tried mainly concentrated there. I still put makeup on the lower half of the face, but never on the forehead. and when my skin started to get better, I wanted to give a bit of concealer or even foundati
  3. Hi everyone: I´ve had hundreds of clogged pores throughout my whole face for the last year or so. My doctor told me to use azelaic acid (20%) to get rid of this problem. I have used it for the last three weeks and have not seen a real change. Has anyone here had a good experience with this acid on clogged pores? Does it really help to get rid of these bumps or does it just prevent them? Thank you very much.
  4. Hi, I've got clogged pores on my nose that are really bothering me. They were tiny dots before, now they are red and make my nose look red in general. Does anyone know how to get rid this?
  5. Hey, new here. Begging for some help. Absolutely cannot take it anymore. I have been suffering from acne for years. All throughout high school and college. For years now i have tried everything possible to clear my acne, from going to a derm. And getting prescription to every over the counter product possible. I have had it. I cant look in the mirror without wanting to rip my face off. I have spent easily over $1000 on products/treatments and i am so depressed. I believe i have comdeonal acne be
  6. I used to suffer from widespread acne but I cleared it thanks to Benzoyl Peroxide. However, ever since my acne cleared I have suffered from a combination of very oily skin and enlarged pores, many of which are deeply clogged and keep forming blackheads and/or whiteheads. I'm only 19 but I feel like my skin looks really old. I cleanse, tone and then moisturise every morning and evening (I will sometimes use benzoyl peroxide in areas where I have spots). In addition, to help breakouts and to att
  7. So I'm here finally posting to this site. I've spent so much time searching online for treatments and solutions. I will try to keep this short. I have lots of clogged pores that turn some turn into pimples. They are puss filled nasty pimples. I also get one or two cysts. I tried so many natural things. I went vegan for two months and my acne got worse. Recently i went to the a derm and he gave me benzamycin. I started using it on my face at night only and wash in the morning. I'd say i have very

  9. I have mild - moderate acne (right now it would be classified as mild). I've had this persisting problem for maybe a year now. I can't remember if I had it or not last year or the years before because it is very mild...but nowadays it bothers me. The pores next to my nose on the right side (not ON my nose but like right next to it) constantly get clogged. They get visibly filled with pus, and I can pop them right away. But either they refill within a day or another pore near them gets clogge
  10. I have always had clogged pores on my skin. I have tried many things to try and cure it but then it only makes it work. I just leave it alone, but sometimes cystic acne pops up and I don't know what to do about it. This has been going on for almost 2 years and I still don't know what to do. This morning I realized that a pimple popped up. Help?
  11. Help guys, I've seen online about how people dry their acne out by using toothpaste, I gave it a try and it burned my skin! Now there's like brownish dark patches on the acne and they don't seem to go away :'( I'm really scared. And i had this boil/cystic acne , that didn't had a head to pop, but I forcefully popped it because it is as hurting too much. And now it's turned really red and dark. It's still swollen like how it was before I popped it. When I popped it, only blood oozed out. It was r
  12. I have stopped trying to buy treatments from shops and dermatologists because I realised they are just not working for me and I don't want to spend a lot of money so I decided to make a baking soda mask using just baking soda and water. I rub the baking soda and water mixture on my face and leave for about 3-5 minutes and then wash off. I'm on day three of using this and I have to say my skin has cleared up extremely. I can't express how much this has worked for my skin and it's so cheap and
  13. I wash my face day and night with Cerave foaming cleanser and moisturize with Aveeno lotion. My forehead is covered in SO many tiny bumps, some that do not have any puss and some that are hard and if i pick at it, a tiny hard grain will come out. My skin is extremely oily and i look like im covered in grease in photos with flash. My cheeks also have bumps and the pores are visible. Before my breakout, i didn’t have enlarged pores. The breakout started last december out of nowhere and nothing has
  14. I've struggled with acne for a few years. I'm 15 and I don't think I have hormonal acne I'm pretty sure it's from irritation idk. I use Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, 2% bp on my problem areas at night, and a oil free mousturizer. It seems I have little bumps on my skin and it looks gross and clogged instead of glowing skin. I also have a bit of redness but I hat started bezyol peroxide a week ago so I assume that will help stop big pimples (it's already helping little). I don't wear face makeup
  15. Hey guys , its my first time posting here because i really need help. a few weeks ago , i went to a dermatolagist because my skin started getting wounds all over for no reason at all and the derm told me that it was allergies to acne cream i was using , so he prescribed me with what I think is petroleum jelly and an acne medicine.So after using the petroleum jelly for about a week , all my wounds were healed and supeisingly all my acne were healed too and my clean was very clear.Following the
  16. Hi everyone: I just wanted to know if someone has experience treating clogged pores and comedonal acne with azelaic acid. My derm prescribed me azelaic acid in the night and then Cetaphil cream to avoid the side effects. Any information is really appreciated!
  17. Hello! I've had these flesh-colored bumps all over my face for months. I know they aren't pimples, so I can only assume that maybe they're clogged pores. They're on my cheeks and my forehead. I've also had these fleshy bumps on my nose ever since I was 12 or 13. I'm not sure if these are clogged pores too, but they've always annoyed me and I'd love to get rid of them. I just want some suggestions on what to use, since I've tried many products and none of them have worked (they made my ski
  18. Okay. So after a year of struggling with my acne..along with my quickly depleting self esteem, I have decided to come to this website and ask for help. I am at a point in my life where I feel too disgusted and self conscious to leave my house and the fact that I go to school with overcritical teenagers does't help either. My skin has started to build up over the last year and it is at a point where I don't know what to do anymore and I have never felt more discouraged. It first started between m
  19. Hi, (first time posting) 1,5 weeks ago my dermatologist decided that I could quit my roaccutane. The treatment did help because all the inflammations are gone, however I still have some clogged pores and red/purple spots. Will my skin continue to improve? It feels depressing that after 4 months of side effects I still don't have the skin I want Thanks for reading, have a nice day. P.S.: English isn't my native language so I'm sorry if there's anything misspelled or wrong gramma
  20. My face feels tight, especially after washing. It's usually pretty red (forehead, cheeks, nose) I have clogged pores on my cheeks/ forehead, blackheads on nose, some on forehead/ cheeks I have red marks on cheeks and a few everywhere else, and a little light scarring accutane cleared me, but acne came back, i think because i started to use products again differin .3% worked after a while, but it made me pretty red and irritated pores clogged after stopping differin i was thinking us
  21. Hello, This is my first post so I'll start with a brief history of my acne struggles: I'm 23 and have had mild to moderate acne since I was 13, on my face, neck and back. After trying pretty much 'everything' from harsh chemical washes, scrubs and nappy rash cream, nothing really made much difference to my skin. Recently I've been making an effort to eat more healthily (in the past my diet has been very poor), exercise more and drink green tea (I'd actually recommend this for general hea
  22. Ok so I have managed to get rid of deep painful pimples through a healthy diet and lifestyle! All i have left is very stubborn comedonal acne. Small white bumps and blackheads. Along with hyperpigmentation. I get them pretty much everywhere on my face except my cheeks and temples. They are the worst on my t-zone, around my mouth, and my chin. They last forever, and when i try to squeeze them out, they just come back or turn in actual pimples. I have pretty sensitive and dry skin. All na
  23. My acne is not very noticeable indoors, but in sunlight everything is visible.My entire face is basically covered. I've had this type of acne for years now. At least 3 years. Some of my small pimples get big enough to squeeze and white stuff comes out, so I'm assuming that my acne is tons of whiteheads. I went to the dermatologist and he gave me pills( deoxyclicline) and Bezaclin and that worked great for my large pimples. I asked him about this acne I have now and he said, "Ohh, those are jus
  24. I am taking this out of my blog... I am on day 19 of my accutane treatment (40mg per day) It seems like my entire face is covered completely with bumps, it feels absolutely gross to touch. Even my neck where I have never had a pimple before is also covered. It is really disheartening. I am praying this is just accutane bringing all the bad to the surface ... but when I research many articles say it is a myth that accutane does that. I am considering stopping the accutane so that my skin can
