  1. Hi. Yes I know I look horrible in the pic and I can't be bothered to even try to look good because my acne scars will ruin everything anyway. Main point: Any suggestions on what type of scar removal would you recommend for my scars? And is it possible to tell me what type of scars I have? Deeply appreciated! I just can't accept my scars no matter how hard I try to ignore them. People tell me my scars aren't obvious but to me they are. I want to get them removed not for other's attention, b
  2. Hello! I have been taking 100 MG of Doxycycline once a day for one month, yet today when I got a refill I realized I am supposed to be taking 100 MG twice a day. Will I have another initial breakout if I increase my dosage to 100 MG twice a day? My skin has not improved much since I started and I assumed that was because it took time, but would a higher dosage help or make it worse? Additional information: I am female, 18 years old, and use Differn 0.3% at night. Any suggestions are app
  3. Hi. I'm 16 years old and suffered from acne for a couple of years now. I have small, flesh coloured bumps all over my face (Forehead, Cheeks, Chin). I also have lots of blackheads on my nose. Recently, I've broken out loads (Whiteheads) over my jawline. It's really affecting my self esteem and social life. I have oily skin which is quite read and after a spot has disappeared, It leaves a red mark which seems to last a while. I use Neutrogena oil free cleanser, followed by a pore refining
  4. Hi! About 2 weeks ago, I had a pimple near my nose/eye around that pore area. I popped it and then peeled the skin off with a tweezer. The skin came off easily but a lot of blood seeped through. I slept with Neosporin for the next 3 days. It became a scab that peeled off. The color of that skin turned into a raw pink because it was new skin. Well, the skin became a purple brown. I don't think it's a scab but it's not part of my skin. It looks really weird and I want it to be gone soon because s
  5. My cyst had come to a head and while I was putting on the treatment it had popped did I just spread all that bacteria around on my face?
  6. I have some shallow acne scars around my mouth as well as red marks from cystic acne is there anything that can get rid of this other than lasers and harsh chemical peels?

  8. Hi there, I'm 21 suffering constant pimples from cystic pimples, i go through times when it's okay then really bad. Normally I just accept the fact that it'll never get better but this time I'd like to change, I have oily to combination skin, I use nude by nature make up and use Sukin face products for cleasing, open to any suggestions on the best way to clear pimples, (swelling, redness,scars) thanks in advance
  9. Hey guys, Without further ado, pics below . I got subcision done with him on 9th October, so its been a week now. Notes before you see the pics: 1. I am still a little swollen so this is not yet the final result. 2. I ended up bruising myself while suction so that is not a bruise caused by Dr. Rullan 3. This has to be mentioned. Dr Rullan is literally the best doctor ever (and I've been to a few). Honest, reasonably priced, really skilled. Please don't waste your $$$ going to money-hun
  10. I’m on my 2nd week on the regimen going on my 3rd in a few days . So all my acne are going away . I don’t have any active acne on my face .

It’s the 6th I will be able to use it on the 20th ,which will be a month . Will the dark patches go away ? Please help . The dark patches have this weird texture

    From the album: Acne.org regimen made skin worse

    I stopped using the acne.org regimen and started applying acnedote deep pore wash every night and every morning. These are a weeks results
  12. From the album: My skin

    Has anyone ever experienced a breakout like this? Been on differin a year to the day and been clear for half a year but now woke up to this monstrosity. I have no idea what they are? My gut instinct is clogged pores but when I stretch them out most of them go away???
  13. From the album: Need help figuring out what's going on here

    Forehead with makeup. The really uneven skin tone is what bothers me most. I've never had such a mix of scars, hyperpigmentation, moles, etc on my forehead before.
  14. From the album: Need help figuring out what's going on here

    Right cheek with makeup. This is the worst my skin has ever been.
  15. Hello guys! I hope you all are well! I need help! No one really knows what it is! I had lip fillers more than a year ago and it didn’t show any reaction. A month ago I started getting tiny blisters that turned into yellow crust. After that it spread around my lips. First doctor said its cold sore, second one said my immune system is very low and 3rd didn’t have a clue!?! I’m still waiting for dermatologist to tell me what should I do but no luck yet. I started to treat lips with a
  16. Hey guys, so I recently used a benzoyl peroxide on my face one time and... Well it's not good. I only used it once but here I am a few days later and I am facing a constant burning sensation and idk what to do. My face is really hurting and I just really need some help. Thanks all
  17. Hi there. So this past fall my skin sort of started acting differently I guess you could say than from what I have been used to. Normally I'd just get the usual pimples here and there around my chin and nose. Recently there have been marks that come and go on my forehead and cheeks, but for the most part, they haven't been anything to go crazy about or complain about. However in between my eyebrows and on the bridge of my nose are these 2 colorless dots that just won't budge! They don't
  18. So, I've been on the regimen for 3 months now, and it cleared my skin up. In all the areas where I do the regimen, I have clear skin. However, the discoloration and dryness from the BP is really just awful. I have this patch of irritated skin on my face that flares up red everytime i scratch it or rub it. There are two of them actually. It's not a blemish, it's irritated skin. It itches and burns, and it's pretty annoying. It goes away maybe 20-30 minutes after, but for the most part it's not fu
  19. Hi! Let me start off by saying... I've been on the Candida Diet for a little over month now because I have fungal acne, since then my fungal acne (malassezia folliculitis) I had on my chin and mostly my forehead are almoat gone! I have some small colorless bumps around my chin though, they don't itch like my folliculitis did, so I'm wondering if anyone has had anything like this before and what did you do to help? PICS BELOW
  20. Hello, I don't think this is specifically acne-related (though I did accutane a year ago and continue to suffer with 'acne' - not as bad, but still persistent), but several days ago now I woke up with a rash all over my body. The rash is on my thighs, arms, legs, hands and torso. There is no itching at all (which is weird?), but my hands do feel like they are burning somewhat. To me, the hands look a bit like eczema, but I find it odd that it appeared overnight with a rash. I don't think
  21. I used to see a dermatologist but I stopped because of family insurance problems. My dermatologist gave me pills that helped clear my skin so much! But I can’t get a refill anymore. Since then I continued using the Epiduo Forte she prescribed for the morning and Veltin with Flurandrenolide Lotion USP 0.05% at night. ( This medication is used on the skin to treat acne. This medication is a combination of adapalene (a retinoid) and benzoyl peroxide (an antibiotic and skin-peeling agent). This prod
  22. Hello. I recommend you view my other post before reading this one but if not it’s all good. Before I started accutane i had pretty bad facial redness. I fully blame benzoyl peroxide, and my dermatologist. I was prescribed BP at age 12 or 13 and i’d slather that stuff on my face. It has damaged it quite a bit. Anyways i’m on my last month of accutane switching between 80 mg to 120 every other day. My acne is cleared (just a few red spots from previous acne that should go away with time) and i’m h
  23. Dealing with the emotional side effects of having bad skin This time last year I couldn't look my Dad in the eye, my skin was the worst it had ever been and my confidence rapidly shattered. I couldn't bare the pain of waking up each and every morning, walking into the bathroom, not turning the light on, looking into the mirror and having to look at my acne-ridden skin. Some days were better than others, some days there would be no new heads and like most days I would see a cluster of new pust
