  1. I am struggling hardcore with my skin, and at this point, I don't know what to do. I'm 19 and have had cystic acne for years, and have yet to find a skincare routine that works for me. My skin is fairly sensitive, but the acne is out of control. I am desperate for any advice on products that won't break the bank but will really help my skin's appearance. If you guys could *please* give me your best recommendations, I would be so appreciative. I don't have any products that I swear by; I'm lookin
  2. Hi! I'm dealing with severe acne since I was 13. 7 years later I have tried everything on the market for acne. I've also taken several antibiotics for acne, and tried many topical creams and nothing worked. The only thing that is left for me to try is isotretinoin. I was so happy when I heard about it, thinking it would cure my acne for good. But after reading about isotretinoin online, I have found out that it contains soya oil, and that patients who are allergic to nuts and soya can't take thi
  3. Hello! I had a nasty zit a couple days ago which I popped before it was ready. Then trying to fix the issue yesterday I tried picking at it just a bit, which of course made it much worse. I have been using polysporin triple and Lamaisl as a treatment so far but no improvements. Really need some help guys!! I have attached photos of the progression. Any tips or tricks are welcomed. Thank you!!
  4. Hello, I tried one pass at shaving against the grain, didn't do good. It left me with a really dark brown spot with red undertones. The darkness has faded a little but it is still very prevalent as you can see. Can someone help me figure out what this is and what I can do to heal it?
  5. Hi guys, So I have found out that if I eat all sorts of chocolade, I get acne on and around my nose, which is fine by me (I stop eating it) I also noticed whenever I drink milk, I get acne on my chin. When I eat a protein bar, I get acne above my lip. These are all avoidable for me and I can live with it. But the problem is that I get persistent acne on my cheeks only! I am allergic to house dust mite, so I change my pillow cases and bed cases regurarly. They are not cysts or pi
  6. I’ve always had very clear skin but for about a year and a half now I’ve developed these red looking bumps on my face, they’re kind of raised, mostly flat, they don’t itch or anything and they don’t seem like pimples. It also seems like it’s undernesth my skin. Someone told me it’s the bacteria that causes acne on my face but they recommened me a $100+ product. I’ve switched my products time and time again, I use home remedies, they won’t go away. People tell me it could be due to stress? But I’
  7. Please help me. My skin is oily for the most part. How do I get rid of these bumps and prevent them from growing back??? Any help is appreciated
  8. So I’ve struggled with acne all my life but after accutane my acne cleared up and only got the odd few spots here and there (nothing crazy) then a couple of days ago out the blue my chin started to go crazy? I don’t know what this is, or what’s causing it. I changed my cleanser to the Botanincal Lab. clay mask and a nip and fab moisturiser and wasn’t sure if that’s what’s caused it? Is this this an example of purging? Whiteheads? Balckheads? I really don’t know! If anyone could offer ad

  10. Hi there to whoever will read this! im almost a 21 years old female suffering from acne of my face, back and chest. I have been dealing with this problem for the past 5-6 years and it has become increasingly unbearable for me to deal with it. During my teen years, my acne did not effect my mental health that much. However I am in college now and earlier this year, I had a flare up which led to significant damage to my self esteem and symptoms of intense depression. I'm currently using adapalen

  12. Hey guys! I am in need of some help with my hormonal acne. For the past year or so I have had consistent hormonal acne on my chin, specifically on the left side. I have comedones, blackheads, white heads, dry skin, and redness in that area specifically, with some small instances on the middle of my chin and left side. Occasionally also on my forehead and nose. While I’ve always had acne, I’ve never really struggled until I got the Kyleena progesterone IUD. Since then it’s been non s
  13. Hi everyone! I’d reallllllyyyyy appreciate some help. I’ve paid A LOT of money for the acne.org regimen products as I live in the UK but I can’t bring myself to actually start the regimen Hear me out: Even though I’ve heard all the amazing success stories I’m really worried the regimen will mess up my already messed up skin. When I was teen (I’m now 30) I was given OTC benzoyl peroxide (i can’t remember the %) but it REALLY REALLY messed up my skin. I have sensitive skin but was told
  14. Hi! So I’m an 18 year old female weighing about 120lbs. I’m currently on month 2 of my accutane treatment and I’m taking 60mg a day. So far I’ve had extreme back pain, dry lips, and nosebleeds. Other than that, I have not had any dryness on my face and I’ve seen no improvement in my skin and I’m breaking out on my neck, chin, and forehead which has never happened to me before (my acne has always been on my cheeks). I emailed my derm and she said that I should have seen improvement by now. Has an
  15. I’ve been dealing with severe cystic acne for 5 years. I’ve seen a number of dermatologists and holistic doctors. The only thing that helped was birth control but it caused me to gain a substantial amount of weight and had other psychological side effects that were bad enough for me to stop taking it. Doxycycline helped keep it more manageable and I stayed on it for a year. I weened myself off of it a few months ago in hopes of keeping my liver healthy and the acne came back with a vengeance. It

  18. Hello all! I am new to the community but I have a few questions.. I have pretty light cystic acne that is hormonal caused by my IUD. I am 18 years old and have light skin. I have some scars but not a ton. Overall, my skin is pretty good but I get new cyst break outs about every 2 weeks and frequently have to get shots in them. I currently use AktiPak and have been on it for a few months. It has reduced my cyst breakouts to about 3 large cysts a month. Recently my dermatologist gave me Reti
  19. Okay so I just signed up on acne.org to make myself feel better and get some advice on this tragic thing i did for my face, because I really feel like trash right now. So last week. I was looking at the mirror, close up, at my blemishes. I have this problem where I will start picking at the smallest thing on my face because im so afraid of pimples. I pick on three pimples on my cheek. All got inflamed. Throughout the week i tried putting mask, benzoyl peroxide, baking soda, etc. Two of them went
  20. Hey ya'll. I'm new on here. So just to give some background information: I'm a 16 year old teen who's had acne ever since he hit puberty around 12. It got really bad around the time I was 13 and 14. Around the time I was 15 and 16, it got less bad, but it's still there. I've tried numerous products, soaps, and even diets over the years as well. Currently I'm pretty satisfied with my diet and face cleaning products. I now just have one more, little question. Does masturbation actually
