  1. Day 1 - I am starting of at a low dosage of 10mg/day as told by my dermatologist. I just took my first pill right after a heavy meal as I heard heavy meals help the pill to absorb better. My routine consists of gentle cleansing, toner, and moisturizer day and night. I will wear a cc cream with SPF 50 if I go out. Day 2 - I have not experienced any side effects, nor has there been any change in my acne. My friends tell me to try rubbing raw potato on my skin, as it can help clear acne fast
  2. Today is my first full week of Spiro, 50mg/day with one 25mg supplement at 8:30 AM and another at 1 PM with lunch. I read here that dividing the doses with breakfast and lunch is best...anyone else agree this has worked well for them? I am sorry I am too embarrassed to take pics, but if I did it would probably really throw me into an emotional tailspin. OIL The overall oil decrease in one week is incredible. My scalp is not dry, but not so oily that I have to wash every other day. The oil on
  3. I only have 1.5 days left of Accutane! I can't believe I made it throughout the entire treatment. Although dry, my skin is smooth and glows. The only scars I have are some red marks that I can easily cover up with make-up. A pain, but I'm okay with it. Although I haven't posted regularly, this site has been so helpful when I visited and read others' stories or needed support. THANK YOU!

    Week 8

    Well week 8 was exciting.... NOT. four large round red cysts on my check! well needless to say they upped my dosage because 20mg wont do a thing for cystic acne. I was pretty sad this week because my whole cheek looked deformed and makeup seemed to make it worse. I will say that I was so frustrated that I did some research and found online that a bunch of people have had success with using fresh garlic on cysts (it has to be fresh!) Since I am so desperate I tried it, only kept it on for about 5
  5. Hello I have mild acne which is well under control with Epiduo. About 3 months ago I got a cyst that was very inflamed on my forhead. It was one of those that didn’t come to a head. I waited about 2 month and it went down and eventually the redness went away but I ended up getting a bump that’s the size of a pea—it’s not painful but I can see/feel a lump under my skin. I decided to visit a derm and got it injected twice and it kinda helped but the lump is still there!!! Any sugesstions or advi
  6. I am so excited to finally start Accutane! I'm a 36-year old mom of two, married and a business owner. Pyoderma Faciale has taken over my life since Labor Day Weekend - not that I knew what it was at that point in time. My 'new normal' includes painful cysts and stares from people. I've worn band aids to business meetings, the gym, the grocery store, the PTA and restaurants. My fabulous business partner has covered meetings for me because I didn't want to see clients or go to events. I've been
  7. Pimple update: I've had two other small pimples that have come and gone - one by my hairline on my forehead and one on my jawline. Then, two days ago I started getting a pyodermic faciale big cyst. A BIG ONE. Dark read and throbbing. It is smaller today and still closed because I no longer pick at my face. Ever. Acanya: I'm still putting Acanya on pimples when they surface. I'll do this until my skin becomes too flakey. I think it helps them go away quickly. Accutane Side Affects: Sun-se
  8. I'm dealing with hormonal-based cystic acne at the age of 41, due to having stopped taking oral birth control 13 months ago. My body is in flux and I just am trying to keep up with my skin's (hormones') overreaction to everything that I eat. I've read that some people can reduce the size of a cyst by applying a topical Cortisone treatment; sadly, everything I see available--e.g., Cortizone cream and gel--contain at least one ingredient that seemingly would irritate an already inflamed cyst, if
  9. My pimple/cyst on my nose has turned black. Yesterday, when I got out of the shower the contents was oozing out. I squeezed until all of the contents were out (or tried.) A few questions I have: What do I with the black cyst (how to treat it) What does it mean when it's black? Was is a good idea to finish popping the pimple
  10. Hi all, So I am wondering if any of you can impart your wisdom as to how to get rid of a soft, red, raised bump left over from a pimple quicker... Background: So I have clear skin now and have done for around 9 months (*finally!*). In this time frame I have only had 1 large under the skin bumps; this one gracefully planted itself slap bang in the middle of my cheek 2 weeks ago right next to a icepick scar (so it looked super attractive) after using Paula's Choice 2% BHA the night before for
  11. Hi, Is anyone aware of any new revolutionary acne treatments underway?...It seems like we've been stuck with the antibiotics, accutane,Benzoyl Peroxide, and salicylic acid forever... Have you heard of any drugs that are seeking FDA approval....The only "new" drugs I've seen are a scam..They are old antibiotics that are now "slow-release" tablets with fancy new names...
  12. I bought The Ordinary 2% Salicylic and followed the instructions by dabbing on spots. I also put the treatment on a few hard lumps under my skin on my chin. I used to get recurring boils as a teen but I cut out dairy and they stopped. So occasionally I get bumps that sometimes come to white heads; but they aren't puss filled (sorry to be graphic) like boils are. I woke up and the Salicylic acid had left a yellow film over my skin, I attempted to peel it off thinking it was just the yellow pr
  13. Hi, I have 4-10 pimples on my body at all times. They come up ANYWHERE (except usually not the face). Some are highly inflamed and painful. Some deeper pimples with a whitehead on top. I've been to so many derms and tried so many products. (Accutane, BP, Antibiotics, all the likely treatments) My life consists of watching a movie and itching my back, only to uncover a large pimple that will take days to heal. I often run to the doctor to get the large painful ones lanced. This patte
  14. Greetings, I have been battling an extremely large and persistent cyst (acne). Also, I have other skin issues (minor) with eczema and dermatitis. For example, a few days ago I had an itchy allergic bump that responded well to hydrocortisone. About 10 days ago, I noticed I was developing two new cysts. One of them was deep and quite painful. The stress of final exams probably played a role in the development of my new cysts. Anyway, I felt extremely ambivalent about seeing the dermatologist for
  15. This is pretty long, so please bare with me. I have also attached pictures below, but I don't feel like it shows my scarring on my cheeks that well. I was on 6 months of doxycycline (over 2 years ago) to clear up existing acne while using atralin. After 6 months on the antibiotic I switched to taking Nicazel Forte continuously while still using atralin. (Currently using both) I have discussed treatment options with an esthetician at my dermatologist's office. I was told that l
  16. It's been just over a month and a half on Accutane. I'm on 40mg once daily. My skin had an initial breakout when I first started that was really bad but only lasted about a week. Once my skin healed from that it was nearly flawless besides scarring and hyperpigmentation. Then once again my skin broke out last week, assumably from my period, and it's slowly starting to heal up now. I've also gotten a few closed comedones (?) their like little headless pimples on my cheeks. They aren't too bad but
  17. 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
  18. Hey guys, so, I've been lurking around here often but have FINALLY signed up. I need to know what I'm doing wrong, or what may be the cause of this terrible cystic breakout. Now, for a background story... Since I was around 14 I've had awful acne. Cysts, nodules, whiteheads, you name it (minus blackheads for some odd reason... hahah). I was put on tetracycline and tazorac and after about two months it worked wonders on my skin. I was clear and could walk out of the house without embarassment and

  20. I'm almost done with my 3rd month on Accutane but I'm still breaking out with cystic acne. Has anyone ever had a cystic acne bump open up and the cyst tissue/flesh comes out? Mine do that a lot and the flesh will just stay for days or weeks. Does anyone deal with this too? Is so, have you found any solutions for it? I'd really appreciate your help because it's been really rough because my shirt will rub them because they are the back of my neck. Thanks
  21. So my skin is pretty much 98% clear except that I constantly get cysts in my sideburn area! Even if I don't shave the little bit in front of my ear so it's an extension of my hairline it'll turn into a horrible cyst and end up with a clump of hair coming out and just being generally disgusting. Any advice on how to stop/prevent this?
  22. 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!
  23. (w/ attached image) On the side of my nose, it started off being red and expanding. A part of it popped and pus came out, but I'm left with a red lump and scabs of dried skin may form on it. It sometimes flatten when I press on it but doesn't go away or come to a head. I think it is a cyst, but what is it and how can I make it go away?
  24. There is a bump on my forehead . It has been 3 months since it has developed . I need help for this , whenever i go out everyone look at me and i fell irritated .
  25. Hi guys, I have a cyst on my cheek that literally has been on my face for about a couple months straight with no sign of getting smaller. In fact, recently, I think it got slightly bigger. It's solid and shiny and sometimes the skin peels off easily and makes it red. It first showed up first on december when i had bad acne, and around March I found that the no dairy diet was extremely helpful and got rid of much of my acne including the shiny cyst! But because i'm an idiot, I still wanted to d
