  1. Hey again everyone. I'm almost at day 16 now and I thought I'd check in. I don't feel as down in the dumps about the initial breakout anymore, since a ton of it has calmed down and cleared [touch wood...it gives me hope]. I have really crappy PIH marks from the cheek breakout and two small nodules remaining [one near the left corner of my mouth from the hormones, a super tiny one on left cheek that was a comedone but got inflamed ... thanks Spiro!] but it is what it is. They won't scar, and they
  2. The three pustules on the right hand side of my chin are drying up and crusting over nicely, the skin getting increasingly flat. However I woke up this morning and found five new red painful under the skin lumps (papules?) on the left hand side. I now have something resembling a red, lumpy, crusty beard. I'm trying to find the comedy in how ridiculous I look at the minute but it's hard. Especially since I've started developing lumps on my jawbone, just before my face becomes my neck, which was a
  3. I was considering posting daily pictures but I thought it would be more effective if I shared them weekly- that way if there's any form of improvement it'll probably be more noticeable. Besides, there's probably only so many shots of my flaky, red chin that a human can handle! I'm not going to photograph the acne on my forehead either because the pimples are small, closed comedones, which I can deal with in comparison to my hot mess of a jawline! Yesterday evening I came home to see that th
  4. Today was the first day of classes here at CSU and I can't help but feel upset about how I look right at the moment. So many people tell me that I cannot complain about my acne because it isn't as bad as others, but acne has controlled my whole life and now it's going to control my whole college experience too. This morning I got up for my 9 o'clock class and immediately put makeup on. It's hard enough to brush my teeth in front of the mirror, can you imagine putting makeup on too? Anyw
  5. I have visited this informative and honest forum so many times and I thought it is my turn to write to share my experience so far. Currently, my experience of subcision 7 weeks ago is not very positive – at the moment. It seems many people have had good experiences but I do think my old acne scars appear worse and I have some raised nodules. I don’t want to put any one off having treatment as we are all different and things still could work out for me. The main reason I am posting is 2 fold – to
  6. Hey guys, so, I've been lurking around here often but have FINALLY signed up. I need to know what I'm doing wrong, or what may be the cause of this terrible cystic breakout. Now, for a background story... Since I was around 14 I've had awful acne. Cysts, nodules, whiteheads, you name it (minus blackheads for some odd reason... hahah). I was put on tetracycline and tazorac and after about two months it worked wonders on my skin. I was clear and could walk out of the house without embarassment and
  7. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  8. Hello friends! Im 26 and new to this site. A few days ago I had a sudden breakout of probably ten whiteheads overnight. Today I have over 40, and my face is very bumpy (washing it feels crazy). It's starting to itch and sting a bit, but I try my best not to touch my face. My acne is all over my cheeks, around the mouth and some down on my neck. My forehead and temple are flawless. Before breaking out, I had switched my cleanser from Neutrogena stress free cream to Alba deep pore gel (becau
  9. Okay well, I've been on Accutane (Roaccutane for me cause I'm in Ireland) for 18 days now and I decided to make a log for people who are considering going on the drug or that are on the drug and what to get tips or info that I can give! So anyways, I'm a 19 year old male and I've had oily skin and acne since I was like 13/14. I got really bad acne including nodules and really oily skin, so oily people would comment on it sometimes! I tried many oral and topical treatments to try get rid of my
  10. Okay so I've had a cystic pimple on my chin for a few days, and I was getting sick of it. I've been putting tea tree oil on it and it wasn't working. Neither was my trust BP cream. It was hard, and hurt and only a little red. But I was dumb and decided to mess with it. Last night I tried lancing it with a needle and squeezed really hard, and only a little oil and blood came out. I knew I messed up so I put bacitracin on it and a band aid. The next day, it HURT soooo badly! It was red and infl
  11. Alright people, im an 18 year old male and over the last few years ive been dealing with moderate acne, i get the odd one in different places but i always seem to have a ton, on my CHEEKS. Primarily THE RIGHT cheek. I believe i have found the cure and it is so simple im dumbfounded. They say the cheeks ( on your face of course lol) primarily the right one, is correlated to your lungs. Ive noticed that im always breathing through the mouth, which is NOT healthy for lungs. Breathing throuh the n
  12. I started having mild acne around 12 or 13 years old that slowly progressed into unbearable, painful, ugly cystic acne. No makeup helped (only made it worse) and my self esteem was abysmal. I'm not selling anything (you can look back at my posts from YEARS before), and I'm not even saying this will work for everyone, but I wanted to post what is working for me. Maybe someone has the sam kind of acne as I do, and this might help. But before I tell you what has FINALLY worked for me, let me show y
  13. I have some AMAZING products to list that you can use on the face that have worked fabulously for me, but I'm also going to talk about internal problems you might want to pay attention to. I had a bout of horrible cystic/nodule type acne that lasted for six months, despite being on Diane 35 pills for years. I had had clear skin for eight years (now 30) so didn't know why I was suddenly getting horrible acne but now I'm back to perfectly clear skin and can even eat what I want. Dermatologists
  14. I've been getting nodules the week before my period for about 3 years now (I'm 24 years old). I started birth control last July and none have helped so far. I started with Ocella (yasmin generic) and that made me get nodules all month for 2 months. Then I was switched to Aviane (alesse generic) and that made my face and back break out for the whole 5 months I was on it. Not with nodules the whole time..but just with regular acne in general. I then switched to Tri-Sprintec (ortho tri-cyclen gener
  15. these are not like regular pimples they from like deep under and they are hard and they take a LONG time to go away. i just ordered dan's products acne.org products and i'm PRAYING it works. i've tried everything. if this doesnt work i'm gonna go to the derm. i take care of my self, exercise daily, take vitamins, healthy diet, i never ever eat fried foods, or junk fast food. thanks for reading! if you have/had cysts or nodules and you got rid of your acne can you please tell me how you did it an
  16. So this may seem like a dumb post...but I'm going to make it anyway haha. So about 3 years ago I started to get nodules that would form on my chin and forehead the week before my period....so I assumed they were hormonal. Well I've been on 3 different kinds of BC in the past year and none has helped. My regular doctor seems to think that nodules are caused from bacteria, and wants me to take minocycline. I'm really scared to take that first of all. Second of all, do you think she is right, or a
  17. Whats the difference between papules and nodules? What causes papules and what causes nodules. Ive looked at the types of acne already but still don't get it...
  18. Hey there, first post. I'm just back from my doctor and he's told me he'll be sending me to a dermatologist for treatment with Roaccutane - I thought he'd called it Roaxcin or something but I misheard I guess - based on his colourful description of the drug as "the Exocet missile" of the acne treatment world I stupidly looked up the side effects. Now I'm not usually bothered by side effects from drugs, but this worries me. I've had acne since I was about 11 (21 now) and whilst it started out as
  19. After dealing with severe cystic acne for around 7 years, I thought it would be helpful for others if I posted my ordeal and the cure I have found. I began to get large (dime to quarter quarter sized) cysts on my face in my mid-high school years. I would also have a handful of whiteheads and blackheads at any given time. I brushed this off for a few years thinking that it would go away on its own. These cysts would become very inflamed on my cheeks, jawline, and between my eyes. They would go i
  20. I used to scour these forums looking for a miracle cure for the "mild" cystic acne that used to appear on my face monthly/weekly/daily! I would get sore, itchy cysts and/or nodules anywhere on my face....normally the most obvious places so there was absolutly no hiding it and make-up only made it look worse (think hunchback of nostradame type thing). I would only get 1 or 2 at a time normally but it was a constant - one (finally) goes away, another appears. Which, by the way, only got worse wi
  21. I barely get white heads or black heads but all of the sudden I get like 5 to 10 nodules and cysts on my face... I suffered from acne for about 5 years now and recently I only had scars but now I am breaking out terribly...
  22. Hi yall, I've been reading some of the other posts about the cortisone shot and I am getting mixed signals on what I should do. Ok, so here is my dilemma. I've taken birth control for 3 years and stopped taking it a couple months ago. Since I stopped taking it, my period never came but I hadn't really had a problem with acne. So, about 4 or 5 days ago my gynecologist put me on a pill called Provera for 10 days to make me start my period before I begin to take birth control again. I started break
  23. hi all. i am at a loss about what to do w/ these few nodules on my face. i am currently on differin .1 daily before bed and antibiotics. my frustrations comes when these these nodules on my face that never fails to bleed whenever i wash my face, i have not touch my face at all during the day and its all good but whenever i wash my face these few nodules (they are located amongst scraps, its just one big patch) will bleed and there will small amt of pus coming out, its annoying because they never
  24. So my acne is usually never too bad. It's usually only blackheads and white heads on my forehead. Ive gotten cysts before on my forehead but I put some Epiduo and it was gone in a week and 1/2. Now I have this supermassive Cyst/ Nodule on my nose. It's been there for the last 2 weeks. It goes from the bottom of the tip of my nose all the way to the bump on the bridge (think german nose). It hurts like hell and it exploded this morning but the redness and swelling hasn't gone down. The pain ha
  25. I am a 16 year old male who has suffered from acne sense I was 12 but it hasn't really gotten that bad until this year. I used to go to the dermatologist who prescribed me tons of different oral treatments, tetracycline, docycycline, and many more that I cannot recall. I tried claravis (isotretinoin) for about a month but it made me feel sore and I worried about long term side effects so I stopped. For topical I have been on Tazorac, Atrilin, Duac, and panoxyl body wash for my back and chest. I
