  1. Hello, Started getting acne with seborrheic dermatitis one year ago and it only becomes worse every day. Please tell me if this is Acne Conglobata on the pictures.
  2. I have had moderate acne all my life. Did one extended course of accutane when I was 15. (Which I highly do not recommend) Been on antibiotics most of my life. Then when I turned 19, I was attacked by severe inflammatory acne. It was so bad I began to have arthritis pains. I was later hospitalized and diagnosed with Acne Fulminans along with Septic Arthritis. I have recently been on a treatment with a course of 60mg Prednisone and 100mg Dapsone. I am an extremely healthy young fit human
  3. I don't know what to do. I've tried Accutane with no luck and I can't go on it again because of the brain pressure problems I had whilst on the drug. My acne on my right cheek is interconnected and it has, at the moment, three cysts that join together. I just started an antibiotic and it feels so bruised I can't sleep on my face or dab makeup on it. It hurts so much and is so large I want to cry and hide in the dark. I'm almost twenty, I shouldn't have to waste my youth because of this. I want t
  4. Hi all! I first want to thank Dan for creating such a great website and forum. I joined this forum to locate and discuss Acne Fulminans/Conglobata, which I have been a victim of since the age of 17 (now 27). I have had decent remission, yet not totally, since the age of 24 and I'm hoping to learn more about derm surgeries available for this kind of disfiguring scarring. If anybody out there is willing to share their experience with this horrific disease and its aftermath, please don't be
  5. Hello everyone, Last week i finally went to my doctors after suffering from acne on my back, chest and face for about 2 years. I have tried a lot in those 2 years in the hope i would cure it myself. I dont have severe acne, nor deep, but it is very visible and scars are mainly dark spots. My back is the most severe, together with my cheeks. I have tried Retin A cream for a few months, and it did not really help. Finally I took the effort to go to my doctor. He told me I had acne conglobata, whi
  6. Hi everyone, The purpose of this post is to try and diagnose what the hell it is I'm experiencing in 2017! I'm 27, from a mixed background (African/lebanese) and have short hair which curles into small little balls. I'd always had acne on one side of my face, mainly the right side within my beard area - whether that was small cysts or nodules but I always seemed to be able to handle it whether that was through Benzoyl peroxide or antibiotics. However this year I've experienced something
  7. Hi there, just some pretty long essay lol introduction bout my acne life which I wanted to share around and hope it may help out to those who are experiencing the same issue. I'm 25 this year, my first breakout started around year 2007. Like how acne used to develop during raging hormones of puberty. Small red bumps, not too many and pretty minor.
