  3. Hello All, I've attached several photos, they include my forehead, cheeks and between my eyebrows. Q1: I would like to know if this is what you would call acne? Q2: I would like to know what is causing me to get these spots and how do I prevent them? Could it be my diet? I'm 18 years old and would have to admit that my diet does consist of a lot of unhealthy foods. Q3: I wouldn't mind getting spots, if they didn't leave behind dark marks that stay for ages! The most noticeable dark marks
  4. I'm 15 years old and I've always had acne but it started getting worse about a year ago. My mom took me to the doctor a couple months ago and I was prescribed minocycline which helped clear most of my acne. Now, I'm stuck with these dark marks on my cheeks and forehead that are taking FOREVER to go away. When I go to school, I wear makeup but it's not full coverage enough to cover everything. It causes me depression and anxiety almost everyday. Please give me some advice (The two scars under
  5. Hi all, I'm planning on doing the 30 days no picking challenge to see if it makes a difference to my skin as I'm so sick of making my face appear even worse due to my incessant picking, leaving scars and scabs that take ages to heal and make it harder to cover up. I tried not picking for a few days a while ago and it definitely helped in terms of my complexion, so I want to try it again and see what happens, and whether it actually helps with breakouts and the spreading of bacteria. Anyone el
  6. Good day to you! I would like to seek some help and suggestions about these scars, or dark marks. They started with small bumps and pimples but i cannot stop my self from picking them until they become scars and when they become scars, i will pick them again until they form bigger scars. and here’s the result. some of them got lighter by themselves through time but i have bigger new ones and they look awful. can someone suggest me what to do to clear them (the new and old scars)?
  7. Please help me doctors..! my face is getting covered up with ugly acne marks. I am using clean and clear foaming face wash. It clears out all active pimples but fails to heal my ugly dark marks on my face. I am also using garnier light serum spf 19 and it's been a week. Images below. I AM LOOKING VERY UGLY. HELP! PS: I live in a place where there are very less number of doctors.. IMAGES: https://imgur.com/a/58ej8 https://imgur.com/a/X6Mns
  8. please rate my acne from 1 being the mildest and 10 being the most severe - what can I do to get rid of my acne? I have oily, sensitive acne prone skin and ive heard reviews about dairy-free diet. Is it effective?
  9. ever since i was a kid i’ve picked on my arms, badly. there was always a lot of whitehead’s and i’d spend hours picking at every single one. now years later i’ve finally stopped but now the dark spots are horrible. how can i get rid of these? they bring my self esteem down so much:( please help
  10. Help! I have been using the regimen for 6 months now and I love the results I'm seeing but now I have scars that won't go away. The darker marks are easier for me to cover with makeup but the indentations just look worse with makeup over. What should I do?
  11. I've suffered from severe acne since I was 12, went on Lymecycline at 13 for 6-7 months and have been left with dark marks and these scars? (I'm 15) Lymecycline cleared my cystic and pauple acne but my skin doesn't look that much better. At first I thought my scars were enlarged pores so I tried pore strips etc. - they didn't work. I suspect they are ice pick scars but I genuinely don't know. Could someone please suggest what they are and possibly give me advice on how get rid of them. Thanks in
  12. Hello, Within the last couple of months I've gained interest in finally getting my acne scars fixed. At the same time, I am scared of getting the wrong treatment which is why I plan to schedule an appointment with a board certified dermatologist. Even then I am aware that unwanted side effects are always possible even under professional examination. That being said, I would like some additional feedback as far as what treatments some members/administrators of this forum would advise me to
  13. Since the age of 13 ive had severe back acne and to an extent some bad chest acne that also extends to my stomach. I am 24 now and until the age of about 22 did i have never ending acne pop up on my back and other areas in my body. Before i would have 5 + pimples on chest and stomach and about 20+ pimples on my entire back at a time. As of now i get very few spots on my chest body and back. I am now left with an entire back left with acne marks and uneven skin texture. My chest and stomach has a
  14. i've been on accutane for 2.5 months now .. skin is now smooth to the touch, but tons of red marks and scarring left behind .. not really sure which is which to be honest, me that's why i'm here. just wanted to post these to see if anyone had any advice for what i could do to help these fade in the next couple months .. really want clear skin for the summer !! i uploaded pictures from about a month into accutane to what it looks like now, anything helps .. please and thanks.
  15. So since my last post which was almost 6 months ago my skin was doing really well no break outs my scars were fading - picture from my last post - those have now faded but as I mentioned last tI me it's a constant cycle with my skin. Just before Christmas I broke out quite badly around my jawline - which was either to do with a new bread I started eating (daily) or new oil I started using - I stopped both immediately! So I broke out on both left and right hand side of my face (not too concern
  16. 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

    I stopped using the acne.org regimen and started applying acnedote deep pore wash every night and every morning. These are a weeks results
  18. I have some finacea gel (15% azelaic acid) that my mom gave me a while ago after she used it on her rosacea . I read it treats Post Inflammatory Hyper pigmentation, does it do that by taking the pigment away or just inhibiting the production of new pigment? And how long will it take to see significant results? I have very fair skin with moderate marks.
  19. Warning: Long as Hell I'm going to include many things I've experienced in the past with my skin (not just the current issue) so that anyone reading this can hopefully take something away from it. And so that the history of my skin is not an unknown variable in what happened to me. Today: My entire face is wrecked right now. And I don't know what to do, I'm pacing around my house,losing sleep, sobb
  20. I'm 21 and I've had the same acne since my preteens but starting getting scars or hyper pigmentation about 4 months ago. I don't think I've changed anything drastic in my routine but have been full vegetarian for over a year. It started with the mark next to my nose to the right of a healing pimple. Then a few months ago I got the marks in the cleft of my chin and the dark spot to the left below my mouth. Then a couple days ago I noticed the dimple scar to the right below my mouth but I don't re
  21. Hello everyone. I'm 21 years old. This is my first topic here. I'm feeling so angry that I needed some place to vent. I've had acne since I was 14, I started taking Accutane around 18, and it worked, so I stopped it, and I spent two years without any trace of acne. It was amazing! But around three months ago it came back all at once all over my face, and I suddendly felt like 14 again, and the reason is probably because I began eating cheese and milk again. The pimples went flat fairly quickl

  23. Hey everyone! So I have been struggling with acne for around 5 years now. My first year of having really bad acne i constantly picked and touched my pimples, which left many dark marks behind on my forehead. Now just last year, four years after getting those pimples, have finally faded. However, I have many dark marks on my cheeks from more recent acne. I do not to pick at my acne, but a lot of the time when I'm scrubbing my face the scab on my pimple will fall off, which does the same thing
  24. I've been using the acne products for about 3 months now, and at first I definitely saw my skin become much calmer and less irritated. However, after the first month or so, I wasn't seeing much more improvement, and even though I use the jojoba oil in addition to the moisturizer, I find that by the time it's the afternoon, my face is usually very dry. Also, every time I pop a pimple or let it go away on its own, a reddish dark mark is left in its place. How long should it be taking for these mar
  25. I am in the first week of my fourth month on Ortho Tri cyclen bcp. My skin has never done this before: I now am covered in post acne red marks. Where once a pimple was I am now left with red marks almost 3 months later. WHY I am struggling a lot I am not sure what to do anymore
