    Redness on neck

    Hi guys, I started using the Acne.org 11 days ago. For the first week I applied the treatment on my neck , where in I don't get acne on my neck. And now my neck is all red and black very irritated and it burns a lot. I stopped using the treatment on my neck , the burning has not yet gone. Please suggest me something.
  2. Hello! About 2-2.5 weeks ago, I started drinking 3-5 cups/day of green tea, as well as mixing it in with my daily moisterizer (Aveeno Clear Complection), which I apply 3-5 times per day. Over the course of 1 week, I noticed this made a huge improvement, but it was not clearing up everything. Then, I began taking Zinc (25mg/day), Vitamin B6 (100% DV), Vitamin B12 (100% DV), Vitamin C(>100%), and Brewer's Yeast (6 tablets a day w/food) in addition to Vitamin A (100% DV), which I had already be
  3. I have this theory, just about two weeks ago I had my Pilonidal abscess ( yes it was infected) of three years, removed. I had it excised and it was left as an open wound to heal as recommended by my surgeon. From this past summer to about January, my cyst was fine and wasn't a hassle at all. Around the same time I got one lower wisdom teeth extracted my Pilonidal cyst got infected, I think it was because I would slump on a plastic chair I have at home for prolong amount of time. My skin was cl
  4. I started the acne.org regimen about 3 weeks ago and it has done a decent job for the most part at keeping my cheeks and the rest of my face clear, with red marks still fading, but it does not seem like the bp is helping me with my jawline and even less with upper neck acne.. iv had quite a few breakout on my neck before and after starting the regimen and they have not stopped.- i get usually 1 or 2 new zits on my neck every day and it is very frustrating because im following the regimen like im

    Scalp/neck Acne

    I´m 32 yo, I had cystic acne as a teenager.. required two cycles of Accutane at ages 21 and 23. After that I has had problems in my scalp and also face. I think that I have a mild-severe acne in beard area persistent papules occasionaly pustules, not a real problem. The real problem is in my scalp, in the posterior part of my neck always have almost a dozen of lesiones, papules, pustules, they itch a lot, sometimes are painful. I have tried almost everything: 1. Topical antibiotics: Clindamyci

    Alcar Acetyl L Carnetine 1gram a day

    I used this initially for my heart (it helps with palpitations etc) and noticed how much dryer my face became. It was so dry i could actually moisturize with emu oil which i did not mind at all. It took 1-2 weeks to kick in, taking 1 gram in 600ml of water every morning, from a bpa free cup. I did not change my diet, but i did also drink more water (because i was drinking this in the first hour of being awake) I stopped taking Alcar recently due to bad time management and have noticed how oily m
  8. Benzoyl peroxide keeps my face all-but free of acne. However, I don't use it on my neck/throat area as I believe it's too drying and my skin is sensitive. BUT I get the occasional cyst on my throat area. They are red, inflamed, and take weeks to subside. I also get a mild shaving rash too (see picture - it looks worse than this sometimes). Any suggestions on what I can use to prevent this?
  9. Does this look like folliculitis to you? I can't find anything through searches that looks like it. All of the pictures show red inflamed bumps all over and I mostly have flesh colored bumps with a few red ones/white head looking spots. It first appeared after working out and switching to a SA facewash along with using BP topically and the more I tried to treat it the worse it got. Cortisone seems to help a bit but its only a quick fix and as soon as I sweat or shower it gets aggravated.
  10. Greetings, I have tiny bumps that look very similar to acne although it's not based on my visuals and attempting to popping them. To recap how this occurred, it occurred back when I had a bad cough that Promethazine w/ Codine and Amoxicillin won't eliminate the cough at all. So my PCP prescribed Methyprednisolone 4MG Dose pack. It significantly reduces my cough and I asked for a second pack. After the second pack my left side of the neck started to grow acne then it turned dark and it grew rapi
  11. Hi everyone, I’m looking at getting advice on how to finally clear my acne that I’ve had from age 16 to now 19. Here’s my backstory. (Male from the UK). I had cystic moderate acne on my face for about a month aged 16 before I finally went to the doctors. I was prescribed lymecycline capsules (antibiotic) and benzoyl peroxide cream. It worked and did clear the cystic acne to some extent. About a year in I swapped benzoyl peroxide for adapalene because the BP was too drying on my skin. At 18 I

    Day 65

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    Picture for reference. Going into my 3rd month and have been off of the meds for 6 days now due to pharmacy issues. Neck has calmed down since the last time y'all saw it. It's not so much cystic heads as it is red or white pustular heads. Isn't too painful unless I pick at it. They're all pretty poppable but come back really fast.

    Front Neck Acne

    Hello, I normally don't break out on my neck and somehow three months ago I started to. I thought it was just a one time thing. I put benzoyl peroxide on it and I guess it made it worse. My neck was an angry red color. I started to break out even more. Where my adams apple is at, the sides of it. It leaves dark marks as well. Currently I'm using taxorac at night and clindamycin phosphate in the morning. Do you guys have any suggestions as to why its happening? My derm said its folliculitis b
  14. Hi everyone, I started the regimen about 18 months ago, and after trying for so long with so many different products I decided to give up as it wasn't doing much for me, and currently I am using nothing for my acne as I discussing products with my GP. I have always had an extremely oily face, back and chest (even though I don't get acne on my chest or back) but for the past year my neck which was fairly normal has become painfully dry, to the point where it hurts to move my head. This may

    Folliculitis or something else

    Okay I've been breaking out on my chest. It does not itch, it does not hurt. Some of these bumps are just red and never form a head. The other are filled with a clear fluid when I try to pop them. Then they scab over. Not all of them though like I said before. I was washing with the St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub and that seemed to help for about a month but now it's just worse. My dermatologist prescribed Clindmycin, but that just made it worse. The pictures are a few hours after I used
  16. Hi all, I'm currently half way through my 4th month of Accutane, and all has been going well so far! Acne is mostly cleared up, and the only side-effects I've experienced up until the start of this week were chapped lips and nose-bleeds. However, I have suffered two side-effects recently which have not gone away: Two weeks ago I developed a strain in my neck, if I turn it say 90 degrees it is very painful, and I cannot turn it any further than that. The problem has persisted and shows no si

    Is This Hormonal Acne?

    Hi, I've signed up here just to get a bit of advice. I am a 22 year old male and have been getting acne on my neck in the exact same place for months now without getting it anywhere else. I have got this before and it has eventually went away but comes back around the end of the summer and doesn't go away for the entire winter. It's not shaving as it appears even when I don't shave. I have tried washing my face twice a day and focusing specifially on my neck, I've tried acne cream called quino
  18. I have dealt with mild acne for most of my life. It started with the usual high school acne which was completely hormonal. For about two years it was pretty bad (my parents both had acne in high school and said they have pretty bad skin in their teens). But it finally started to clear when I was going to college. I got to college and my skin was great! The occasional breakout here and there but I kept my skin really clean and I thought everything was past me. Nope. It started around Oct

    Pityrosporum folliculitis

    I am new to this website and I’ve never commented on anyone’s posts before. I’m only a reader, but I felt I needed to recieve some insight on this because I’ve been suffering from (what I believe to be) PF for 11 months now after taking a round of Doxycycline prescribed by my Derm for an acne breakout. Nothing and I mean NOTHING has cured this terrible stuff. I lost hope since going on a strict anti-candida diet for 2 months and nothing cleared up. So, I’ve just been living with it and covering
  20. Hi all! New user here I recently turned 26 and started to break out along my jaw line and my upper neck. I never have broken out like this before and I am looking for any advice to treat it. Also, does this warrant a trip to a dermatologist? Or should I be able to control it over the counter? Thanks!
  21. I have had severe adult acne for years now. Acne on my back, shoulders, chest, around my hair line, and severely painful cystic acne on jawline and neck. I tried prescription strength acne face wash, washing with natural oils, changes in my diet, etc. To make a long story short - I was given a new shampoo and conditioner to try and my acne immediately started to clear up! I still have scars, whiteheads and pimples that are drying up and are in a healing state. But since I stopped using Pantene P

    male 30s bad breakouts

    I am a 34 year old male As a teenager I had problems wit acne on my chest While I did also suffer from Rosacea I didn't get many spots on my face. The chest acne cleared up in my early and mid 20's In the years afterward I had far from perfect skin but breakouts were mild and I was able to treat redness with sudocream However in the last two years I have had major out breaks including cyst spots and my skin in worse than its ever been The majority of the spots are on my forehead and ne
  23. My doctor put me on birth control (ortho-tricyclen) after my first period in middle school. Fast forward - clear skin for almost my entire life until I turn 19 and decide I don't need to be on synthetic hormones. Three months later, cystic acne all over my cheeks, jawline, and neck. Sound familiar? Straight away I go to the derm. Get put back on ortho-tri. I stayed on the ortho tri only to experience mediocre results, then moved onto yaz for three months which caused a literal facial explosion
  24. for years growing up I had severe back and chest acne, i am now 24 and the issue has seemed to go away for the most part—benzoyl 10% worked well once i stuck to it. But in recent months while the back and chest / body has disappeared i have been getting routine cystic zits on and around my lips. i stopped using benzoyl on my face, (6%) because it would severely dry out my skin. i have a mild case of exima around my body so the benzoyl, and also Peter thomas roth (salycic 2% face wash) would c
