  1. So about 6 months ago I squeezed a headless pimple on my cheek too hard and it became red and started bleeding. Ever since then there has been a red outlined mark, it's not bumpy or anything it's just annoying. Is there any way to remove it effectively?
  2. From the album: retin-a micro: worth the wait? I took a picture of my face every week for 4 months

    When I first started writing this post at the beginning of the summer, I was in the throes of the initial breakout caused by starting topical retinoids. Hyper-keratinized plugs and god-knows-what-else built up in my pores, and now the retinoid was forcing it out. My face erupted in multiple places with huge, swollen bumps. As each lesion resolved, 2or 3 new ones would begin forming on skin still red and tender from the previous weeks breakout. The only thing keeping me sane was this: I have a pr

  3. From the album: retin-a micro: worth the wait? I took a picture of my face every week for 4 months

    Other than the one bright red spot on my right cheek where I foolishly picked and squeezed, the doxycycline has really brought a lot of the inflammation down. There's still a lot of closed comedones to purge, but if my previous breakout is any indication, the worst is soon to be over. -- When I first started writing this post at the beginning of the summer, I was in the throes of the initial breakout caused by starting topical retinoids.

    This was about 2 and a half weeks ago, where I had acne and was on my GP prescription of Duac Gel and an antibiotic. It took very long to start to function and my acne and scarring was blue and purple. It's disgusting. I guess the medication they prescribe in the UK is very mild and hardly ever make a difference, as opposed to the Indian medication which works wonders, however - does dry the skin out. I can smell bleach (Domestos) when I am applying the face wash which makes me very scared
  5. Hi guys, It's only been about 6 months that I've been off Accutane but I'm going for a consultation soon and I'd like to get some other people's opinions on my skin. I'm pretty certain I have Post Inflammatory Eytherma but I'm not 100%. Looking at my gross photo (sorry about the quality), what do you think would help the most and how much longer will these take to heal? Also, I've got a semi-hard lump underneith one of the red marks but my face is completely flat and it's been there for ov
  6. Hey guys, Was wondering when your Post Inflammatory Erythema faded? These are the red marks you get after acne/trauma and will disappear when they are pressed and then come back when they aren't being pressed, so annoying man! (Victims of PIH are normally people with darker complexions and the marks are usually brown and PIE is red/purple) Just wanted some more information, there's a dude on here called 'bio_nerd' and he has loads of information about it on his profile but he hasn't been a
  7. So after suffering from an extremely severe bout of cystic acne (caused by stopping topical antibiotic lotion) at the end of 2016, I decided to give the dairy-free diet a go. I cut out all dairy from my diet, all of it. No milk, no cheese, no cream, no butter, no chocolate, none of it. Used to have cheese sandwiches quite a bit and a chocolate bar nearly every day - gave it all up. I've been dairy free for over six months now and to be completely honest, I don't really see much difference to wh
  8. Hi all, I've read up a lot about PIH in the past. I have a lot of scars from a break out last year that are still here. They are mostly reddish/dark spots, some of them have a very slight indentation, some are smooth. Almost all on the sides of my cheek, though a handful on my forehead as well. Recently I learned about post inflammatory erythema (PIE), and I think I may actually have that, not PIH. So quite possibly, I've been treating the spots wrong since I have used methods to treat PIH,
  9. I'm looking for advice on adapting my regimen to daily bicycle commuting and the inevitable sweat/irritation/sun exposure that will happen with this change. Currently I take public transit to and from work so this is not an issue. The ride will be about 4 miles each way. The weather should be moderate (50-90 degrees F). A little background: I've had acne since puberty and am now 29 years old; my mother had severe acne into her 40's so I believe it's largely genetic for me. My acne is primarily
  10. Today, my face looks like a pizza. Well, it always looks like a pizza but today there’s extra, extra pepperoni. My struggles with acne began in 2006. As a typical high school teenager, I wasn’t mindful of washing my face every day, eating healthy, or taking care of my skin. I cared about getting my license and who was on my AIM Buddy List. In fact, I only started to take notice of my skin once little red bumps started to appear on my forehead. In retrospect, these breakouts were harmless and
  11.

  12. I am currently on Differin gel to help clear clogged pores, tiny zits, inflammations etc. but I still do have moderate acne scarring from past acne. I have a question does differin gel help fade PIH or would I need to exfoliate myself? Can someone please help me...

    I started this course of the Indian medications on Friday 26th December 2014, so it has only been about three days I have been taking this. I don't think this major improvement is due to these medications though as I have only started it for about 3 days. However, if it was - it works wonders! In the first picture, the acne scarring and the acne is inflamed and almost blue. In this picture about 2-3 weeks later, I can see a big improvement. The scars are more pink and less red and purple tha
  14. is gluten the main or/and only reason why grains considered inflammatory food item in general? if no,then what are the other possible reasons? if yes,then how does it contribute in being inflammatory for our gut?how does it effect our gut? also,how and why do u think they are said to make our skin oily/greasy? thanks.
  15. Background Story I am FTM (female-to-male) transsexual having in the last six months started on HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). I am 22 nearing on 23. During my "first puberty" at 12-13 I had mild acne. A few breakouts around my mouth/jaw. That cleaned up for the most part by the time I was 17-18 and I thought I had been done with it. Oh boy was I so so wrong. Being on Testoserone injections was probably the biggest "mistake" for my skin. I broke out bad. And it all happened within the la
  16. Hello, This is my first post on this site so I hope this is in the correct spot but anyway I began my battle with acne in middle school and am now a senior in high school. I've tried the over the counter products, prescription antibiotic lotions and retinoids, prescription oral antibiotics, and finally Accutane. After battling acne for years just trying to "maintain" my breakouts but working so hard and still not getting where I wanted to be, I decided to go on Accutane. I began Accuta
  17. Hi everyone, Firstly let me say thank you for taking the time to read this. I'm seeing a really expensive derm in the hope of curing long standing adult acne. Recently, I sent this email to her and thought I would copy it in here to see if any of you could offer any insight. I understand how painful adult acne can be and wondered if any of you had had a similar experience or could offer any advice. Hello, That's fine thank you. I understand this a really long qu
  18. I currently have severe acne. Since coming off the pill approximately 5 years ago my acne has got progressively worse. Having tried various anti biotics and topical treatments for a year I was referred to an NHS dermatologist who diagnosed inflammatory acne and rosacea. They wrote to the GP with recommendations of treatments to try - mainly more anti biotics. Things settled for a period but then started to deteriorate. Things took a dramatic turn for the worse when I was prescribed Duac and had
  19. Hello everyone, welcome to my first post. This is for me to track my progress as I make changes to my lifestyle and diet inorder to clear my acne for good!! I normaly get spots on the temples of my forehead, along the jaw and on the lower parts of my cheeks. It gets really, really red and just looks so bad. I'm hoping that anyone reading this will be inspired to change parts of their lifestyle that could also be causing acne. If it helps just one person, I'll be happy. Firstly, let me start
  20. Hey everyone. I'm a 20 year old male. I've suffered with acne for about 4 years now. I'd say during the past 6 months I've been moving towards more clear skin. My regimen: Hot/cold shower 1-2 times a day Ivory non-fragranced soap 1-2 a day No moisturizer Doxycycline 60 mg once a day <--waste of money but whatever Electric razor -- haven't shaved in my inflamed area for a very long time though I usually just trim facial hair besides on cheeks and mustache So I just showered for my
