  1. So I have these things for over 3+ years now. My acne problems are pretty much gone, but this is the only thing that's stuck to me. They don't necessarily hurt upon touching (unless you put a lot pressure, obviously), but they're kinda hard/tender if it makes any sense. I'm not sure what they are and honestly I've been wanting to get rid of them as of lately since I've been getting into fitness (240 - 155) so I figured I'd take care of my body in general. Anyone have any ideas as to what the

    Red Painless Bumps

    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!
  3. So about 1.5 weeks ago I popped a white head that was on my cheek and since then after that it has been red, painful and hard. I had not been doing anything besides washing it with my Clarisonic but yesterday I decided to put hot cotton ball to the area in hopes of decresing the swelling and getting out what was inside of this huge red swollen bump while I believe is infected. After 1 day of putting the hot cotton ball on the site my swollen bump has increased in size and it is now more red ev

    Really Wierd...

    So I've been really lucky in that I've never had much acne, and whenever a zit does pop up it's hardly ever noticeable, but about 3 or 4 years after I started to get acne I've noticed that sometimes when I pop a zit a little yellowish green, hard, kernel-like...thing will squeeze it's way out of my zit. They're very tiny, about half a grain of rice, and don't seem to be filled with pus or anything like that. They mostly pop up on my chin, and every once in a while on my left cheek. I've looked a

  6. Hi Guys, This year has been hard, Acne, Dermatits, Seberhoric Dermatitis, everything. Right now It doesn't look so bad, My Acne isn't the really severe type it's between mild and moderate, I have been on antibiotics and what not but they did not work. Sometimes I feel sad because I just want this all to be over, I wish I didn't have to stress about it, It's always there, whether I can deal with it or not. I dream of the day when I have a clear, normal complexion and I can casually look in the mi
  7. Hi I have this red pimple under my skin that feels hard and looks real noticeable. I haven't touched it in months and left it alone and still no difference. This month I used some Duac once daily gel and still no difference. I finished accutane a month ago and brilliantly I don't get any more pimples any more but now I'm just waiting for the marks to fade. But this one won't go away, like I got it 4 or 5 months ago and it still bad as it was then. I didn't pick at it or anything but it won't go

    The Hard Slog

    So for each time I try something new I have realised that I fall hard when it comes to the two week period. It's so hard to stay strong and positive when it seems that your pores are just inflaming and your skin getting redder with each glance in the mirror! Hence my aversion to mirrors/photos and that sort of thing. Like at the moment I'm on these herbs that are meant to help you from the inside. Problem is that they clean you out by pushing all the gunk out, which for me means that it makes it
  9. I have NEVER had acne. In February I had my mirena replaced and about a month later I started noticing painful embedded bumps in my cheek area. I stopped using the cetaphil liquid soap and started using the cetaphil bar soap with the neutrogena 3 in 1 toner which was working for a couple months. Then I began getting these awful almost "rashes" of bumps under the skin along my jawline which can not be popped and are EXTREMELY painful and itch. I have tried EVERYTHING, black soap, charcoal soap, a

    Help Red Itchy Splotches

    so i've been on the regimen for 2 month now and ive been doing everything by the book. a couple of days ago i developed really itchy hard spots of skin.Other than that my acne is clear. Now the skin is peeling and is really itchy. I didnt change much n the regimen but reduced the amount of bp i use. Im really frustrated because i dont have any acne but my skin looks worse than it would have with acne. i dont know what to do and it looks really gross. has someone gone through this before? any sug
  12. What are the white plug looking things in my pores? Are they sebaceous filaments? They are more visible after shower or washing, and there's more of them in this area. They become less apparent as the day goes on. This area is also iterated easily and tends to feel dehydrated after morning shower if not moisturized. I can keep them in check if I wash my face at night with a wash cloth but if I don't use one they seem to multiply. Thanks

  15. Hello, I am 17 years old and was prescribed doxycycline hyclate for my severe facial acne. I started two weeks ago, taking two 100mg capsules per day. At first, it seemed like my break outs really calmed down but right now, I am breaking out horribly (like before)... Is this normal? Will I keep breaking out? How long does doxycycline take to work? Thanks for your help! P.S. I've had severe acne for the past 3 years, and also moderate acne for the past 5 years... I've tried tetracycline and

    Bp Going Dry

    I started using BP about a week ago and what seems to be happening is that BP on my skin is actually going sort of hard and dry and then resulting in the BP going all flakey etc. (Not my skin.) When I wash it off in the shower, it still lingers on my skin,(I rinse my skin with plenty of water) I can never fully wash it off which means the next time I put BP on, I am just putting it ontop of a dry layer of it which is already on my skin. Is this usual? Am I doing something wrong? This dry layer

    Poop!

    HEY! POOP! It's like my favorite thing to do! It just feels so great to go! I feel like people take it for granted! I've been pretty constipated on and off for months now! I take probiotics, very top ones, drink lots of water, but still! I just couldn't poop without force, and I always had a mucus from straining. Lately, I have been going more...at-least it's coming out, but it's so hard! An so big! I had weird pale spots in my pooooo. I fee like my bile or liver isn't functioning as good. I eat

  21. So I popped this pimple and it was hard before I popped it, but after I popped it, it was still hard? Is there more pus in it, or what? How long until you think it might go away?
  22. Hi guys, I'm seriously desperate for help on this problem i had for the past 3 or so years. Anyone with similar experiences or solution to share is greatly appreciated. BTW, I have extremly oily skin. I don't really know the right term to describe it but i will try my best to. My face has a tendency to have this (breakout?) that is hard yellowish, kinda crystal-like. It has no liquid pus at all, in fact I don't have other type breakouts apart from that It usually peels/scrapped off while
  23. Hi! I was wondering if any of you have had something similar (pic attached). The picture lighting doesn't really do it justice but I have a couple old, hardened blackheads (i think??) that have been on my nose for years. They have just stayed there and I really want them gone. Should I get a cortisone injection? I've had cortisone injections before but for actual cysts much larger, on my jawline. I'm hoping it would work for what's on my nose also. Thanks!
  24. Hi, I just want to give a bit of background history: I have always had closed comedones/whiteheads on my chin since I was 15, Now I am 22. I have previously been on Benzoyl Peroxide to get rid of them. However they never left. I was't too bothered because you cant see them until i stretch my chin out. Now at 22, these spots have started to cover majority the lower half of my face, I have never had this before. When I squeeze them either a hard clear seed comes out, or a stringy white subst
