  1. 23, Female Acne type: larger red pimples along jawline and cheeks. At least one new breakout a day. Also have blackheads on nose and milia (maybe just deep white heads) on my chin and cheeks and in between my eyebrows. Medications: birth control. And I take a vitamin A supplement every night I started getting acne when I was in grade school and I’ve and it ever since.

  2. Hi im a 17 year old girl and ive had acne for the past 4 years but ive been getting spots since ive been 11. Its the usual story, ive tried everything including zinteryt, benzoyl peroxide, duac, lymecycline, tetracyline ( been on antibiotics for the past 2 years) and also differin cream and 3 types of birth control.

  4. For the last 5 years I've been constantly struggling with bad acne. i've felt hopeless, fearful, ugly, unlovable. Lately i've been fantasizing about a place i could wake up every morning and feel accepted by my self and those around me. I know its a pipe dream. but what if there was a place were people could come to vacation or to receive therapy or go through accutane treatment or any type of skin treatment around other people who are going through the exact same thing. a place of tolerance, l
  5. Alright, I've been wanting to post on here for awhile and today I just really felt like I needed support or maybe some answers... I'm a 17 year old girl who's suffered from depression since I was 12, PTSD at fourteen, anxiety etc. but I ALWAYS liked the way I looked.. At least to an extent. I was confident, especially in my ability to get guys. Very outgoing, loud, fun to be around.. I've had some horrible things happen in my life but it felt like my face and my looks were all I had. They gave
  6. Hi, I just joined this amazing community! For my first post, I just really wanted to vent and share my personal "long story short." I've suffered from acne for about 12 years now. When I was a teen, I thought it was just common to have acne because of puberty and it'll go away in a few years. Well, I was wrong. I had acne through high school, college, and up to today I still have it and it has gotten severe. I've literally tried everything from proactiv to clean & clear to Clinique and every
  7. In 2012 I had clear skin and I loved myself, I was confident and it wasn't hard for me to make friends. But for the last 2 years acne has been tormenting me. It's on my back, on my chest, on my face, and it makes me feel so ugly. I was a girl who could wear whatever I wanted, but now I wouldn't even look at a v neck or strapless shirt, the acne on my chest and back is too embarrasing. I hide it, I want to hide all my acne, I wear make up but I am so bad with make up. I hate that we do live i
  8. I've been struggling with acne forever! Or so it seems.. I swear I tried everything but nothing is helping :/. I'm about to give up and just live like a pimple faced freak.. not only is acne unattractive but it really has brought my self esteem down, I don't even go out of my house much it's gotten so bad. I would love to just go out with friends again and not have to worry about my skin 24/7. I want to have a life.. is that too much to ask for?
  9. Hi everyone It has been a while I hadn't posted. While I was away, I still suffer from acne. Big cysts. Two to three new acne on ny face every week which will definetly leave scars as soon as they appear. I also have mild depression or is it severve? As I keep thinking about my acne 80% in a day. My head hurts sometimes. I sufferred from it because I am scared. Terrified that one day my face will become worst. I really need supports and hugs and compliments that could soothe my mind. No one
  10. Just a week ago, I was celebrating my perfectly clear skin and I was not afraid to look in the mirror after taking a shower because I knew my face was blemish free. Right now however, I feel like my face has never looked worse. I have a total of six spots on my face and I can't even look in the mirror without wanting to break down and cry. I have refused to go outside at all these past few days because I'm too embarrassed to show my face. I have two huge scabs that I've had since Saturday on my
  11. So, I had a dermatologist appointment today as it was a one-month checkup after starting doxycycline. Let me say, my face looks no better as it may honestly look a little worse. Anyways, I was trying to be hopeful as my dermatologist seems to think this acne will certainly go away. We were talking about once the acne is gone and what I can do for my acne scars (because I have many and my face looks like a mess). Then, she started saying laser treatment would be the best option and work well.
  12. hi. weird things are happening. god, i have so much to say... but im just so tired of it all ok so, long story short ive developed geographic tongue over the last few months because i burned my tongue really bad back in january and it just has been crazy ever since. if u dont know what GT is, its a condition where your tongue has these patches on it and for some its not painful, but for me it is. there is no known cure and doctors still dont really know anything about it... which.
  13. Somebody please help me. I have had scabs in the past, but never like this. For some reason my face decided to break out really bad after being completely clear for 3 months and I (the idiot I am) tried popping every single deep nodule I got on my face. I had 2 on my forehead and one on each cheek. The two on my forehead have been huge scabs since Sunday, and I have another huge scab on my left cheek that formed yesterday. When I say huge, I mean these scabs are literally ruining my life right n
  14. April 5th Now, i can really say that I have hit rock bottom.I am turning 25 this year. I am out of Job for 2 months already, Going back to my Parents house, I got $4 in my atm and still breaking out like crazy. I had interviews for the past 2 months and unfortunately I always fail the Interviews, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am turning 25 and Still I am breaking out like hell and to add I have tons of scarring both Ice pick and box scar types on both my cheeks and t
  15. I'm not bragging to say that I am good looking because I am ugly. I have a fit body because all I do is go to the gym since I am ugly, and from a distance, when you can't see my acne scars and hyperpigmentation, my face is actually pretty good looking. Once you get close though, I look hideous and gross with red marks and boxcar indents all over my cheeks and temples. I know looks aren't everything, but I can't get over the fact that my life would be completely different if I didn't
  16. I've struggled with acne since about 5th grade and I'm currently a senior in high school. Nothing has ever seemed to work for me, and i've tried a lot!!! I hate my acne because it makes me feel so self conscious, and lonely. Nobody I know has bad acne so nobody understands when I talk about how much it sucks! My friends just say "its fine" when deep down its really hurting me. Looking in the mirror sometimes just makes me cry because how much my acne upsets me. I have tried loads of products and
