  1. Acne vs. Rosacea

    Acne vs. Rosacea Causes of Acne and Rosacea Clinical Manifestations of Acne Clinical Manifestations of Rosacea Treatment of Acne and Rosacea Summary Both acne and rosacea are common skin diseases that affect millions of people worldwide. Although they are separate conditions, people sometimes cannot distinguish between them. This misunderstanding occurs for two related reasons: Sometimes the lesions of facial acne and rosacea look similar, for instance, both diseases can come with papules and pustules. Because some lesions...
  2. What Are the Best Foods for People with Acne?

    The dermatological community still does not know whether diet impacts acne. However, some initial studies have shown that certain foods might possibly be better for acne than others. These foods include: Low-glycemic foods High-antioxidant foods Foods high in zinc Foods rich in omega-3 fats Low Glycemic Foods The glycemic load is a measurement scientists use to determine whether a food will cause an increase in the amount of sugar in your blood. High-glycemic load foods cause a lot of sugar in...
  3. Is Pizza Bad for Acne?

    Scientists do not know whether diet impacts acne. This means that we do not know, for sure, whether pizza causes acne. However, researchers have studied the impact of various ingredients that are used to make pizza on acne. This evidence points towards the possibility that: High glycemic foods, like the pizza crust, may not be the best idea if you have acne. Dairy products, like the cheese, might also not be ideal for acne. But, less is...
  4. How to Clear Open Comedones (Blackheads)

    Blackheads are brown- or black-colored clogged pores that mainly form on the face, but can also be found on the neck, back, shoulders, chest, and upper arms. Dermatologists classify blackheads as "non-inflammatory" acne lesions because they are not red, swollen, or painful. Blackheads form when microscopic hair follicles (pores) become partially clogged by skin cells and skin oil, called sebum. Because the pore is only partially blocked, it remains open to the surface of the skin...
  5. Disclaimer - This may not work for everyone, but I have been suffering from hormonal acne for about 20 years now and have FINALLY managed to clear my skin, so I wanted to share with people what has worked for me in the hopes that it might help someone out there struggling with the same problem. Also important to note this is not an ad or a link to some product. This is knowledge that I pieced together over the course of 20 years of suffering from adult hormonal acne. And I tried EVERYTHING

  7. In a bit of a dilemma dealing with skin issues… I might be one of the guys that has to go through an Accutane cycle once a year to remain clear, so 2 weeks ago, started taking 60mg daily, with a 120mg dose one of those days of the week (to accelerate the process—total broscience). In the meantime, trying to figure out how else my flare-ups/irritation/inflammation can be minimized…. Maybe I just have overactive sebaceous glands, which Accutane uniquely treats and is very effective at minimiz

  9. Alternative Treatment Options for Acne During Pregnancy

    Treating acne during pregnancy is difficult because there is scarce direct evidence concerning the safety of most acne medications and pregnancy. In addition, some acne medications, such as isotretinoin, are not safe to take during pregnancy because of serious risk to the fetus. Alternative treatments such as light and laser therapy show some degree of promise for treating acne during pregnancy, though results are mixed and often are mediocre. Other alternative treatments, such as dietary...
  10. Had doc appt yesterday. I fasted for it bc last round I got blood tests done every month. This doc only wants a blood test every two months I guess? weird. I like to know my blood test results bc it assures me that my triglycerides and cholesterol aren't clogging my arteries and leading to a heart attack . Anyway, he increased my dose from 40 to 70!!! I'm very happy, but also nervous. Last round I took doses 30/40/40/60/40. My doc took me off of 60 bc my triglycerides were getting very high. So
  11. My solution is really simple so I’ll keep this short. I remember obsessively scrolling through this forum every day years ago and promising I’d come back and make a post if I ever cleared my face up. Start by saying the usual I tried everything under the sun. Every pill and cream to stop it and nothing worked. I went vegan and actually ate healthy. Not living off Oreos and potato chips cuz those are vegan but nothing will change for you. Cooked with minimal oil and tracked my nutrie
  12. Hello, I've felt tormented with adult acne for the longest time. I also had hormonal/teen acne from 16-18 years old. My skin condition might seem trivial to others around me, and even dermatologists and doctors. But on a personal level, it affects me. And happiness comes from within right? I appreciate others have it worse than me, and that there many other ailments out there which I don't have are far worse. But I put my hands up and admit I am weak, skin troubles are my Achilles heal

  14. Hi, I'm 20 years old and never had acne (accept the odd pimple) until I was about 18. I developed acne on my chin but it has gotten extremely worse over the past few months and it's really getting me down. I don't want to go outside the door and trying to disguise it with make-up just doesn't work anymore. I just feel so embarrassed and keep thinking it's never gonna go away. It's really red, inflamed, sore and itchy and I can constantly feel it on my face and never stop thinking about it.
  15. let me just say, i TOTALLY regret not creating this blog earlier. anyways, i also have an accutane progress account on instagram by the same name, which i have posted updates on even before i began accutane. anyways, hello! i'm a 16 year old american girl struggling with moderate acne which sometimes flares up and becomes cystic. i first got acne when i was 12, but it was nothing that a little bit of atralin couldn't handle. before my freshman year of high school, my acne worsened a bit,
  16. Some general tips I know that have worked for me are: Drink a lot more water throughout the day, it makes you feel good and your skin feel fresh! Don’t touch your face, your hands are probably dirty and you are putting that on your face! Watch what you eat. Ideally you need to stay away from sugar, dairy and processed foods because they clog your pores and are bad for your health in general! Do some sort of physical activity, it’s not only good for your face but it is also go
  17. Bare with me. Its a long story over 8-10 years of knowledge but I hope this helps someone. #Skin RE-CLOGGING ITSELF endlessly My acne slowly slowly started when I was 12 and atm im 22 (first with bumps and pus filled ones and at 20 years oled they were deep big under skin cysts- it was a stressful time w bad relationship/ I ate very much processed food and oils and dairy). At 16 I was on birth control for half a year which didnt help acne and my whole body hated it (depression, low energy, br
  18. Acne is the most common disease of Western civilization, and it has evolved to an epidemic affecting more than 85% of adolescents and 50% of adults. Acne is virtually absent in non-Westernized countries that do not consume cow's milk and dairy products...Imagine that - entire populations that have never experienced acne Acne is now more seriously being regarded as a disease caused by exaggerated production and activity of insulin within the body.
  19. I have visited this forum intermittently over the course of 4 years, during which I had suffered from chronic folliculitis (like this guy but much worse) originally triggered by overuse of minocycline. Things I tried: BP regime. Seemed to help in the beginning, but gave me seborrheic dermatitis and enabled folliculitis to spread to the scalp. Following the acne.org regime was my 2nd mistake! More antibiotics; works for 1-3 months only. Accutane. Helps, but comes back after
  20. If you haven't heard of of the 'Caveman regimen, you're not stuck in the dark ages. It's yet another half-baked idea at to eliminate acne What they mean by "caveman" is keep your face dirty... don't wash it... don't use chemicals... just let it be. You know what cavemen did before cleansers and before acne Now, I couldn't agree more with this theory. After all cleansers and a most other acne products destroy your skin's microbiome which can make acne worse. Once you mess with you
  21. Hello everyone, welcome to my first post. This is for me to track my progress as I make changes to my lifestyle and diet inorder to clear my acne for good!! I normaly get spots on the temples of my forehead, along the jaw and on the lower parts of my cheeks. It gets really, really red and just looks so bad. I'm hoping that anyone reading this will be inspired to change parts of their lifestyle that could also be causing acne. If it helps just one person, I'll be happy. Firstly, let me start
  22. If you're male and have acne you may have overlooked a few reason your acne persists. Your acne will most likely never go away if you aren't targeting your Acne Signaling System - the central point of acne initiation, where it all begins I'm going to guess it's pretty damn frustrating to be a grown man with zits!? Not so hot right! This can definitely be a source of insecurity and depression. You're feeling unattractive and maybe aren't comfortable being as socially active as you want
  23. Hey to all of you! I hope some of you could give me some advice. I'm really drawing a blank at this point. I've had acne for about 12 years, I'm 25 now. The acne I'm getting of course changed over the years and I mostly break out on both my cheeks and my jaw. I get new pimples every day or every other day when I'm lucky. I always have about 2-6 active pimples. I tried many things but eventually I ended up reading up on how changing your diet can "fix" your skin. I have a major sweet tooth s
  24. So, I was on accutane for about a year. I took it in 2015 and ended towards the summer of 2016. I don’t remember the transition of dosages but I believe I went up to either 60 mg or 80 mg. For the past two years, my skin has been clear. Occasionally, maybe once or twice a week, I’d get 1-2 little dots on my face. For the the past two weeks, I’ve had heavier breakouts. I was not on my period when this began and I still am not. This was my skin two weeks ago:And here was my acne prior to accut
  25. Hi everyone, so I've been trying to root out dietary causes of my longstanding acne/bacne and have gone dairy, gluten, and junk food free for a while in those efforts. I have seen some success which has been encouraging, although admittedly up and down. My question is for people's thoughts on Chipotle bowls. I basically eat Chipotle every day for lunch because it's the only spot nearby where I can reliably get non-dairy, gluten-free meals. I actually don't mind the repetition at all and my ini
