  1. Today sucked for a lot of reasons. I've been having a ton of stress from moving soon and not sleeping well and I'm sure that did nothing to help my face. The Neutrogena cleanser is necessary to prevent worse acne, but I'm just so dry...and it's making me way more oily than I ever was, plus cold weather isn't helping. I haven't looked this bad in at least 2 months. I feel beyond down. I never had this awful cheek acne until I began Spiro and it still hasn't subsided. It's like almost all the cc
  2. I haven't been on Acne.org for a while now because i had the impression that my acne troubles were making a full remission. I was pretty damn wrong. For a while i was walking around all confident and what not, didn't really worry about my face because i didn't think anything was wrong with it. I would look in the mirror and not really be perfectly satisfied with how i looked but it was alot better than what it used to be. And then, i made the mistake of looking closely at my face in the light wi

  4. This past year has just been horrible - my acne triggered it but now I'm not so sure my self-esteem and confidence issues are because of acne. I know if my skin was clear I would be happier so I will begin here on my journey to self-acceptance (Easier said than done). Decided to post on here as no one around me seems to understand, I'm constantly in tears because I can't stand to look in the mirror. Most people I mention it to say they don't even notice I have problematic skin although I think t
  5. I found my confidence recently. Acne was finally not a problem. I was smiling and happy and going on dates with wonderful guys. Life was good. Then today one of my close friends saw me drinking a shake and asked why. I replied "I want to look good for the beauty pageant I'm doing next year!" He simply replied "What are you going to do about your acne? Girls with acne never win." And in that moment, I lost my confidence. I couldn't find it anymore. I just put my head down and walked away.
  6. I'm so depressed about my skin. I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. I spend all my money on things to get rid of my acne that just don't work. I have an upset stomach everyday from medication that doesn't work. My face hurts from a medication that just doesn't work. And people are still mean idiots who like to point out any imperfection and right now they're just so many. I don't remember ever feeling this bad about y skin. I've been hose before and cried myself to sleep before but it
  7. I'm feeling very hopeless right now. My skin is attempting to rebound from a massive breakout and infestation on my face, neck, ears, chest. Why didn't it go to my damn back? I tested a new round of vitamins with catastrophic results. No more Saw Palmetto for me. Birth control here I come. Trying out Ocella. And yesterday I started juicing. Wishing my mom still owned her health shop, all the free food, juice, smoothies I want for FREE. My skin looked fantastic back then. Thinking about
  8. I wanted to blog and post about my moods. For the past couple months especially, I have felt increasingly low..and I mean low. There seems to be a pattern though. Since my period came back in April they have been irregular (obviously). My body has not yet regulated itself and I notice the past few months anyway that they have been 2 and a half weeks late. But during the first week they are late and a few days onto the second I am horrendous with my moods, extremely irratic, emotional and on the
  9. Acne log 2 2011 Nov I started the last blog last night before I fell asleep, today I woke up at about 9 30 . As usual i woke to my face feeling tight and gross, most likely it is because I didn't wash or use moisturizer or my medicine. I was just at my wits end and felt like it wasn't going to help any way. As I peered in to the mirror I noticed my face was still red and swollen with white heads in groups all over my face. I decided to hop in the shower and I don't know if this is the best
  10. Acne log 2011 Nov I have started this blog because I am fed up with acne. I have had acne since I was 16 and im 21 now,tho it has never been this severe. I would post pics but too embarrassed. I just started atralin and minocicline 2 weeks ago. And this medication sucks so far I don't know if its gunna work or keep turning my skin into the mongaloid I see in the mirror. They say I need to wait 4 to 8 weeks before I see improvment I dunno if I can last that long the way its going now.cuz it
  11. Short acne story: I started getting it at 9, obviously very early, and it was what would be for a teenager moderate acne, gradually getting worse until about age 12. It was so bad they started me on accutane, despite me not having cystic acne it was bad enough to make the cut. It worked wonders for me, and I went off it two or so months ago. Recently, I've been slowly getting acne back, much like it began, and it's got me terrified. Now I'm in high school and now it truly bothers me, and th
  12. Hey guys. I'm new here. Anyways, as most of you-- I basically tried EVERYTHING there is to offer in the market but nothing ever worked for me. Ever since I was 10 (which was when I first started having my periods and now I'm 19 nearly 20), I was already experiencing acne breakouts. My mom would send me to the best dermatologist every Saturday in my city 'til I was 13. Constant extraction from the doc. Constant shit on my face and it would never ever stop! So my dermatologist then suggested Ac
  13. I kid you not, I have tried everything to clear my skin. oral antibiotics topical antibiotics topical creams etc. changing my diet- going plant based (no dairy, no gluten, no meat) going on the pill- in an attempt to balance my hormones going on anti-anxiety medication- to try and calm me the F down. (I always break out when there's something on my mind) zinc supplements, omegas, etc. glycolic acid, lactic acid, retinol, sulfur, etc. (everythin
  14. Hi im a 17 year old girl and ive had acne for the past 4 years but ive been getting spots since ive been 11. Its the usual story, ive tried everything including zinteryt, benzoyl peroxide, duac, lymecycline, tetracyline ( been on antibiotics for the past 2 years) and also differin cream and 3 types of birth control.

  16. 1 month ago, I had some acne on my face. It bothered me, but not to the point where I feel depressed and suicidal. I went and took a prescription for accutane, and I started taking the accutane pills, and what I realised is that accutane for some reason makes me want to just commit suicide, it makes me so depressed I don't even understand why, I want to stop taking accutane but in the same time I want my acne to go as well. Any help?
  17. 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
  18. For the last 5 years I've been constantly struggling with bad acne. i've felt hopeless, fearful, ugly, unlovable. Lately i've been fantasizing about a place i could wake up every morning and feel accepted by my self and those around me. I know its a pipe dream. but what if there was a place were people could come to vacation or to receive therapy or go through accutane treatment or any type of skin treatment around other people who are going through the exact same thing. a place of tolerance, l
  19. I've had genetic hormonal cystic acne since 4th grade. Not to sound dramatic, but I was not the same after having acne. I went through a acne extraction session and it was so painful. It probably left the ice picks scars I have today. I can't help but envy others with smooth skin. I honestly feel that acne and acne scars have held me back from achieving my fullest potentials. I could not relax and tend to avoid eye contact with people. And it doesn't help to hear my mom tell me to wash my skin p
  20. I previously posted about my acne including pictures but now I'm wondering . im becoming increasingly depressed because of my face. Somebody told me it could be because I stopped incorporating sexual activity in my lifestyle. Could this be true? I'm 18 and is been about a year. I useto have sex a lot mayber everyday if not everyday but after I got out of my last relationship I ceased all activities. Maybe my body is used to being at a certain level , hormone wise or does sex regulate hormones
  21. This is my first time to write anything online about my struggle with acne. I am not comfortable talking about it with other people, but I think I need some support even if it's only online with people who can relate and understand what I am going through. I've dealt with Acne when I was a teenager. It was isolated on my forehead only. I have a hard time remembering in detail exactly how my situation was then but I remember having so many red bumps across my whole forehead. I was young and did
  22. Really just want to rant right now. I was on Twitter a few minutes ago and saw an article with these two models with acne and the tweet was 'zits are cool' so I was happy until I saw the replies to it. There's tons of people who are like ew no, wash ur face ect. And this has angered me so much. As someone with acne you want to feel pretty despite having bad skin and so when I saw the pics of the models I was like great!! You can be pretty with acne but in a short time after seeing the comments I
  23. Hey guys, just want to know how much other people out there are severely depressed about there skin? I has cystic acne younger left some good scars! Tried peels , laser , needling , subcison and a million creams....some marks improved other just got 1000 times worse... laser damage is comming up on my face and doctors told me I have rosacea because my face is so red and inflamed now..and there testing me for lupas because I have a strange butterfly texture on my skin (not red but texture is c
  24. Hey guys, Was wondering when your Post Inflammatory Erythema faded? These are the red marks you get after acne/trauma and will disappear when they are pressed and then come back when they aren't being pressed, so annoying man! (Victims of PIH are normally people with darker complexions and the marks are usually brown and PIE is red/purple) Just wanted some more information, there's a dude on here called 'bio_nerd' and he has loads of information about it on his profile but he hasn't been a
