  1. hey hey im kay i have had an acne problem for 5 years and a very bad case of acne i have cystic acne and it it very painful and irritated most of the time . when i was in grade 7 my acne started it wasn't at it worst but it was bad more than anything it was painful not just physically painful but emotionally painful .at the time i was the only one in my class with acne and no1 knew how to react i never used foundation or anything to hide it because i assumed it would make it worse and in a few
  2. Acne has ruined my life I have had acne since I was 12 years old I didn't really care when I was younger. I was on doxycycline on and off for 7 years it helped while I was on it but it wasn't the cure. I tried changing my diet no milk no sugar nothing help. I don't have any friends anymore because I don't like going out anymore.People thought I was really weird because I have social anxiety now it's because of acne. I don't have a job because every time I go for a interview I can't
  3. I'm currently 15 and well acne has really changed my life anyways Ive had acne for 2 or 3 years its never been severe tho until this summer were I just broke out bad worse than ever and now I have severe acne I can't talk to people without trying to avoid eye contact and I've failed 2 of my classes for the 1st semester cause of skipping I just wanna hide in my house and wait till it goes life is hard I'm not always depressed but every now and then I can't help but feel bad , what can I do to cop
  4. To start this off I would say I had severe acne or just right before having severe acne. I didnt have insurance so i could not afford accutane after hours of searching online i found a us based chemist who sold accutane he had reviews on his accutane so i decided to buy some. they come in 20 mg pills. for 1 month a took 1 pill a day. for the last 20 days i have taken 2 pills a day so 40mg/day. i still have a long way to go but i am happy with the results so far (knock on wood) I think I may end
  5. Hi Friends, I am June. I'm 20, and I have been suffering from severe acne since the age of 12. This is my story: I grew up in a quaint town in Canada, next to the big city. Entering high-school I remember myself as being the "quiet kid", people would call me, but my demeanor did not illustrate a child of depression, but one simply expecting it. I was, and suppose still am, a sensitive individual - but at the time, an individual with ideas and lingering thoughts more positive than the pessi
  6. I'm a Vet! (2400 users online) This will be my last topic for a long time. I only do topics if I feel necessary, but I'ma chill on that stuff for now. So, I'm not trying to kiss acne.org's or ass or anything, but I was surprised to see no one created a topic like this before. Acne.org has done so much for me and others over the years. Two people even met and got married on it! So I just wanted to create this out of appreciation, and for everyone to share their stories on how this web
  7. soooo im new to this, i decided to sign up because it's just really refreshing to see other people understanding how i feel because in real life nobody i know does. feel really embarrassed and bitter even about typing anything on here just because i hate the fact that my life has become this and i also hate anyone knowing that i suffer with this condition because it's humiliating, even though nobody on here knows me. but whatever.. over the past few months i've been feeling so low and as patheti
  8. Soo.... Still no call from a dermatologist. I'm beginning to feel like my summer will be over before I am able to see one, and that makes me very, very upset. My goal is to be acne free by the time my senior year starts, and that would require me to be a few months into accutane... Time is running short! My little obsession with my face and acne got me thinking a little bit, though. It's given me some pretty deep thoughts--as deep as my cystic acne *huehuehue, pun intended*. My mind
  9. I'm walking and then a couple(lovers) passes by and i notice them smiling, laughing, holding hands, hugging close together, kissing, etc..And i just wonder to myself....Will i be that lucky someday? Will i? To have a girl walk by my side that i can hug and hold? To talk to? To kiss? To love? heh..i wish it was that easy...But sadly, its not. Especially if your an ugly acne scared up monster like me, i dont like to think of myself this way, but somehow it feels that way. I don't know how i stay s
  10. Anybody got a laser with RF ? and had bad experience ? melted skin after the laser ? and more scars? saggy skin skin ? dry skin ? I have come to the conclusion, that the first ever treatment for my scars, the Matrix RF laser was too powerful and have melted my skin and made it saggy, more scar, kind of dry and REAL bad heal skin.... MY skin couldn't even heal from a Fucki?)=G injection from a tiny small needle before the subcision treatment, so I now have small look a like ice pick scars from
  11. Hello everyone I've been visiting this site for a while now and just recently made an account as I have a question of my own and also because I'd like to talk to people on here. The question being, is acne worth dying for? it may sound like a strange question but lately I've been thinking about how much acne restricts me from being who I want to be and the life I want to live. I avoid the love of my life because I don't want her to see me with how my face looks and I don't think I can have
  12. Hi. I'm desperate for any assistance help tips or anything at all. I've read a lot here and tried a lot of stuff already. But nothing has worked so far, and a lot of the other issues seems related to other stuff. First off, I’m dyslexic and English is my second language, so if there’s any spelling mistakes I might have missed after proof reading this a couple of times that’s why. Let me know and I’ll fix it as soon as possible. Basic story: I’ve been been using Isotreti
  13. I have posted this as a blog too, but decided to post everything I blog in a forum also... I have posted this as a blog too, but decided to post everything I blog in a forum also... A long ways back I used to be a member of this community as flyBOYkp.. Seeing as I no longer have access to the email address attached to that username, I have created a new account. A lot has transpired since my postings from 4 years ago when I began a daily regimen of Accutane for "acne"... Lon
  14. I have had acne for 12 years ​My whole grown-up life has been affected by my facial skin, every time i wake up, my first thought is "please not today" - by that thought, I mean; not another day looking awful. ​My self-esteem, and approach to other people a determined by the amount of pimples on my skin; some days i can't stand the thought of other people looking at me, seeing what i see every time i look my self in the mirror. ​So instead of the regular cure, I have tried over the
  15. I have had acne for 3 years now. Will it ever end. I guess you could say its mild but it's a bit worse than that but I wouldn't say severe either. Its just enough to make you hate yourself. I can't even remember having clear skin. I don't EVER take pictures. So when I'm older I won't remeber a large portion of my life thanks to my terrible skin. I avoid mirrors as much as possible. Whenever I look at one my whole day I literally ruined. .... I dont look people in the eye. I don't want to think
  16. 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
  17. Because this is acne.org, you probably know already what this post is all about. I’ve been lurking in this site for a year now and it helped me quite a lot to understand my condition. And it also made me realize that I’m not alone in this battle. I am Asian (just so you know) and I’ve been struggling with acne since when I was 15 and I have on and off relationship with acne. I’ve been battling it for 6 years now. I never really talked about how my acne made me feel and how it aff
  18. I have been struggling and suffering with acne for probably around 5 years -- although it feels like far more than that. I recall it starting out on my forehead and it wasn't all that bad at first. I didn't do anything about if for the first year or two until it started popping up on other parts of my face, at that point I tried a few products but nothing worked. As of the past 2, maybe 3 years, it has been so bad that I can hardly leave the house because I am so self-concious. I will admit
  19. WATCHING ACNE , SCAR PICS PEOPLE CRYING STRUGGLING .. we call this struggling really things have changed in past 50 years a lot the worst thing is i never had severe acne but i have more scars then those people with severe acne .. (not saying my scars are worst have seen people with more acne scars but i am just 25 it was my time to enjoy and i used to think poor fellow bout those people now i know how they feel and waiting just to reduce the scar redness for a year not the scars (as they nev
  20. Hi,I'm brandon,16 from Malaysia/Singapore.I've been seeing a lot of acne.org posts about how people feel about their acnes and how it has affected their lifes.But i've never thought I will ever be doing the thing myself.To be honest,I'm crushed emotionally and I'm crying while im writting this just like most of the people I guess.I had a flawless skin when I was small and looking back all the old pictures of me can really crush me down and I'll just cry it out loud,thinking what happened to me a
  21. sorry if its long, but please read it all. thanks. Ever since i was 13 around 7th grade i started getting really oily skin and a few pimples on my forehead but i didnt think it was a big deal. Oh, how wrong was i. Then in 8th grade I broke out like crazy everywhere. It only got worse in highschool, as i got a really big red and dry patch on my forehead that i couldnt treat. Worst moments of my life, but i still managed to be somewhat social. I was later able to treat that patch (which at som
  22. This is my final phase when I can not go any further. I decided to write how the fucking scars destroyed my whole life and I don't know how to fix it. I have a perfect boyfriend, he really loves me and I told him about my thoughts - he is my last shining star in this world but I can't bother him every day with this stuff. I do not know how to sum it up in the beginning, I've had my health under puberty. Diets, obesity, anorexia - all these impact me. Until then, I had the smoothest most delica
  23. For those of you who miss out on things because "you can't go out looking like this" (i'm one of them) please watch this video. Yes, we suffer and acne sucks. But this story of these girls makes me want to walk into my classroom tomorrow with no makeup. Cystic acne and all. http://youtu.be/47152-qcreQ I actually stayed home all weekend due to a break out. Never again.
  24. Hello Acne.org Community, I am WadeX. Been with the community for over a year now, and it is now my time for Accutane (iosotrenoin). I am going on for a six month treatment beginning soon. I hope to keep my logs here. Currently my acne is pretty bad, however it is NOT severe, or up and down causing deep scars, however I've been on antibiotics over a year, tried treatments, BP, Adapalene (Differin), SA, BHA, and everything else. My mom has been on this and it was successful. I will try to up
  25. I wish I knew how to start or knew exactly what to say. I have never felt more alone in my entire life. I've been dealing with acne for almost 7 years now and I'm 21. I used several face washes, proactiv and went to the dermatologist and doctors several times. I decided to go for a more natural method for a while and completely changed my diet. I have cut out dairy, chocolates, meat, any type of fruit that had a lot of sugar in it such as bananas or watermelons and other foods as well. I tried a
