  1. I've been on break from school, spending more time with family and friends over the Christmas break. Granted, this is the first Christmas I've spent with Accutane, and it has definitely been something completely different for me. However, since my acne has gotten a bit worse, I've come to the realization that people have no idea what it means to have acne, especially when they have had clear skin or for the most part, trouble-free skin. It is really hard for me to sit and listen to a
  2. Lots of people say acne is genetic and if you have it, someone in your family should or did, too. Personally, I'm flying solo in my family when it comes to acne. My sister's got perfect porcelain doll skin and my parents haven't ever struggled with acne either. I thought there might be a few more of you going through this and we could relate! It's frustrating enough to be the only one out of your friends, coworkers and acquaintances, but to be the only one from your bloodline with acne and b
  3. (For the explanation of the topic itself, skip to the button.) Honestly if no one reads this, it's ok. Too long, didn't read for you? It's ok. I don't blame you. I know, it's really long. I just need to get these emotions out. I wanted to do this many times before, but I didn't, and now here I type. History of me and my acne (if uninterested, feel free to skip) I need to pour all of these emotions out somewhere. I'm tired of locking myself up in my room and screaming silently and cry
  4. On an up side though, I have planned to book a dermatology appointment on Saturday 25th February. It is Harley Street Dermatology Clinic. Super Super excited to see a professional for the first time. I got really upset and phoned home last night which was a mistake. My mum is really annoying. She just buts in with stupid medical shit. She doesn't actually know what she is talking about because she has never suffered from bad acne. But anyway, mum and my sister decide to belittle my emotions and
  5. So this is a random question but I feel like my acne left me with a lot of emotional problems. First of all when I had acne (now i only have some scarring left) I was always anxious to be in bad lighting and stuff like that. So i guess after so much constant worrying i still feel social anxiety bc it was so common to me before that it hasn't gone away even if the original problem is gone. Is there any way to get rid of this other than seeing a doctor? because I don't want any anxiety pills AT
  6. when do acne go away? it's one very difficult question. so the answer is "we're clueless". but i'd still want ur opinion on what u think is likely to happen. is it similar to what ur family tree says? do parental acne story usually matches with their offsprings?(i repeat USUALLY!!) do one usually grow out(or get rid) of acne at a age(more or less) when their parents(either mum,dad or both) had grown out of it(got rid of it)? PERSONAL FEED : my father never had acne.i
  7. I'll try and sum up my acne background, and trust me, I'm leaving out a whole bunch for the sake of your time (I'm a guy if that changes anything): Since I was 10, I started to develop mild acne on my forehead. I didn't do anything about it because my parents assumed it was natural and would go away in a few months. It literally has lasted me 6 years (I'm 16) and my parents continue to say the exact same thing, "it's just hormones, it will go away soon." In those 6 years, my acne has not disap
  8. I wish I knew how to start or knew exactly what to say. I have never felt more alone in my entire life. I've been dealing with acne for almost 7 years now and I'm 21. I used several face washes, proactiv and went to the dermatologist and doctors several times. I decided to go for a more natural method for a while and completely changed my diet. I have cut out dairy, chocolates, meat, any type of fruit that had a lot of sugar in it such as bananas or watermelons and other foods as well. I tried a
  9. Hello there I am 16 years old (17 in 3 months yaay!) and I have been suffering from acne for about 2-3 years and there was a stage where my skin was horrible as I had acne all over the my face and back. My dad and brother both had severe acne and left them with scaring but I did all I can to avoid being in that position. Their acne started to clear up when they were around about 17-18 years old. Now it comes my question, will that mean that my acne will start to clear up around that age
  10. It's difficult for me to post this topic, but I need some advice because I feel like I'm in the twilght zone. I hadn't seen my family in 2 years because they live in a different conintent. This past year, my skin has gone from relatively clear to chaotic, and now it's almost clear again but I have tons of red marks, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and little holes all over my cheeks. SInce January of this year, I had been sending my family photos of my acne at its worse because I was hopeless as to

    so I've gotten a puppy just a couple of days ago, my father and i drove 3 hours to get her and 3 hours back home so in total it was six hours in the same car with each other and I've gotta say I'm pretty proud of myself and him cause there was no arguing or annoyance which I'm thankful for, you see... my father and I hardly get along but now we don't fight as much and I don't hate him as much so it's all good but anyways i named her raven and she's the new addition to my little family aka pet
  12. Hello! I'm here to bring insight on this long journey I'm currently on with facing acne. i've had acne every since i got my period, so around 6th grade. I'm currently a junior in high school. Acne is an overall hard think to manage. Not only do you have to deal with people telling you how to treat your own skin or constantly bringing up how bad your skin look, but you deal with your own devils inside. ill be the first to admit, my acne does make me feel less pretty and confident. no matter how
