  1. Today is my first full week of Spiro, 50mg/day with one 25mg supplement at 8:30 AM and another at 1 PM with lunch. I read here that dividing the doses with breakfast and lunch is best...anyone else agree this has worked well for them? I am sorry I am too embarrassed to take pics, but if I did it would probably really throw me into an emotional tailspin. OIL The overall oil decrease in one week is incredible. My scalp is not dry, but not so oily that I have to wash every other day. The oil on

    More Acne

    Trying to figure out what I should do. It looks like I am getting two little bumps near my newest pimple and I'm just worried that they're going to get bigger. I don't know how to describe them, but they are raised bumps and almost look like they're just going to be tiny pimples that usually come to a head, but they never do. Can someone please help me? I honestly feel like I can't win. If these two pimples get bigger I don't know what I'm going to do.
  3. From the album: Nodule/cyst treatment

    Day 6. Again, moderate improvement in inflammation, reduction in pus
  4. From the album: Nodule/cyst treatment

    Day 4. Nodule had already formed but thought I'd document the progression a bit late. I approximate that this is day 4 since the nodule developed.
  5. The Role of Inflammation in the Development of Acne

    The Role of Inflammation in the Development of Acne There are two major theories of acne formation. The newer theory points to inflammation as the main factor in acne development. The more we learn, the more this theory asserts itself. The traditional theory contends that inflammation plays a much less important role. The more we learn, the more outdated this theory becomes. Research in recent years has led to more scientific support for the newer theory, and to the...

  11. Long story short... I think its a nodule pimple ? Accidentally scratched what felt like a small scab off in my sleep a few days ago and I had a small scab for the last few days. Just cleaned my face and felt liquid under the scab and felt allot of pressure so I got a clean needle and make a small opening next to the scab and with tissues squeezed some runny but sticky gunk out and a bit of runny blood. It looked like just an open hole at the end... No puss or oozing so I've put some clearasil
  12. Most of my cysts completely disappear but i've had a couple that even though the swelling and pain has gone, theres still a hard lump where it used to be - is there anything I can do to help it drain away without sticking a needle in my face? Also, if anyone else experiences this, most of my cysts leave a purpley mark behind that looks like trapped blood, like the cyst filled with blood and its still there? Some of them have been there for a year and have faded like 20% if that. They dont go
  13. So this has been here now for about a week and about 3 days ago it was nearly gone and I figure it'd pass by by now but it somehow got worse. I took a 5 day break for my doxycycline and with New Years and all I drank a lot and I only usually wash my face w ivory soap once or twice a day but I didn't wash much during this span and now it's at it's worst. I believe bp only makes it redder as I've used it to cover it up when I go out and it's seemed to make it bigger and redder. I also tried icing

    Still on 40mg. About to bump up to 60... Making progress. Any thoughts on third month experiences? Also wondering if raising my dose will give me a flare up
  15. Should You Pop Cystic Acne?

    Cystic acne, also called nodulocystic acne, consists of large, severe lesions called nodules and/or cysts. This type of acne should never be popped because it can damage the skin and make the acne lesion worse. If performed correctly, other, less severe acne lesions can be popped, but popping nodulocystic acne results in more redness, swelling, pain, and scarring. Nodules: Nodules are large (over 5mm in diameter), red, hard, painful lesions that form deep within the skin and...

  17. What Is an Acne Cyst?

    An acne cyst is a severe acne lesion that occurs in people with severe acne. An acne cyst differs from other cysts in the body.

This sac never contains pus. However, in acne, there are two types of cysts:...

  21. i had a subcision many years ago with excellent results. However recently I had a few rounds of subcision around my smile line for a couple scars and it seemed to just make things worse. The area where the needle was inserted created a tethered area and itcaused additional wrinkles and crooked smile lines. It basically looked like the skin was stapled along the three points the doctor insterted the needle, causing a brand new fold/wrinkle. I tried to get it fixed, and went to a new doc, who s
  22. Hi gang! My background: Lurker for close to 10 years, almost as long as I have had acne. I am a mid-20s college student raising a sibling. In other words, I have no time. I want to look presentable, though. This is why clearing my skin naturally is so important to me. I also don't wear makeup.. so it's magnifies the issue. I'm a hard INTJ, if you dig MBTI. That means I'm typically anxious and tense, which I'm sure is a big part of my acne. BCP (Yasmin) cleared my skin in my teens. Went
  23. Hey guys. I signed up specifically to share this with you as I spent hours researching what was actually on my face. I had a cantankerous sore that started off as a fairly small pimple that I thought had popped on the inside. I left it alone for a while but could still feel a tiny bump underneath my skin, so stupidly I squeezed at it too early and it turned into a quarter sized sore I naturally thought was a cyst. Except this massive red lump was not behaving as a cyst. I tortured it with BP a
  24. Got cortisone injections for my cysts today. Sometimes my doctor seems to put the injection a little away from the nodule rather than directly in it? Anyone else have this experience? Will the injection still work?
  25. Hello all, I wanted to share a few pictures that I had taken yesterday of both sides and the back of my neck. I have always had bad skin, I had the usual teenage acne on my face which slowly disappeared around my 18th birthday. However now 21 years old, I have a persistent case of cyctic/nodule acne which appears only on my neck! Which is a blessing and a curse at the same time, I am grateful that it is not on my face. My GP has given me a couple of different antibiotics over the years,
