  3. Hello. I'm 19 years old and i've had acne since I was about 15. My acne never really got severe until I was 16/17. Ever since then, I have had major breakouts and large acne bumps. Sometimes they are so big that I have to pop them .. Even when I don't pop them they turn into a scab.. In the past year the majority of my acne is on my forehead. It is so bad and i've tried everything from Proactive to other Salysic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Honey, even Witch Hazel, Alcohol, Hydrogen Peroxide, Garlic,
  4. So I started getting acne at 12 I'm 14 now and since then my acne has gotten really bad. TMI but I have squeezed small sebaceous glands from my cheeks all the way up to my lower jawline. How has it gotten this bad? My acne over the summer seemed to disappear but really red hyper pigmentation marks appeared in October when it started getting cold. (Idk if that has anything to do with it) now my marks are worse than ever this is the worst my skin has been. Skin peeling, marks all over my cheeks, u
  5. I'm 21 years old and I had taken Minocycline for a while and heard if u take it too long u get grey spots and stuff so my skin was clear and I decided to come off it but then I got some pimples around my chin and didn't like it so I went to the derm and asked if I could try doxycycline (cause my brother takes it) and I took it for about 2 weeks and it broke me out so bad I was so upset! I had deep pimples that I couldn't cover up. I called my derm and said it didn't work for me and did the oppos

    Hi everyone. Right so I'm just going to start off with this: I've been staying away from all things acne related which includes this web site, looking up cures and watching videos on YouTube as that seems to be all I ever do but I'm back and I feel so low about my acne, I know I have people around to help me but all I constantly read is that people's PIH have gone during Accutane and mine is still here and I want it gone more than anything. My birthday is coming up and if that would be the onl
  7. I've decided to post pictures of my acne as it is today, as I am really starting to lose the battle mentally. Some background info: 17, male, from Australia, average height, a TINY bit underweight. Haven't consumed dairy, gluten or any high carbs for a month now. Before that month for a few weeks I was eating junk food for about 2 weeks. Before that I was on a serious healthy diet which included no gluten or high carbs, ALL natural food, all raw vegetables and healthy meat for 2 months. I exe

    I just got done with a derm. visit and he prescribed me THE SAME STUFF WHEN IT CLEARLY DOESNT WORK. Ive been on this "treatment" for 2 months now and have NOT seen even the littlest improvement. My face has actually gotten soo much worse than before and it isn't even getting better. My treatment consists of 200mg minocycline daily and tazorac at night with BP in the mornings (not gonna use atm since irritates the f*** out of my face). I don't know what to do anymore. I might even stop going to t
  9. Hello everyone, I was hoping to get some advice on how to shrink/flatten these scars on my nose. A little backstory, I've had pretty crappy skin ever since high school, but poor advice on topicals (tazorac mainly) have really ruined my skin, perhaps permanently. I've been really embarrassed for such a long time. These scars have absolutely destroyed my self esteem, and has really affected my school work and social life. I always felt that it was shallow to be so concerned with my looks, b

    Homeopathy advice? X

    Hey, so for a while I've been trying many different tablets and skin care products to solve the acne on my face, back and chest. I have been offered roaccutane but due to currently doing GCSEs I decided it was a lot to deal with at the moment. I was thinking of looking into homeopathy as I have heard some good things. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it or had any advice. Any comments or suggestions are happily received. Thank you loads love Eve xx

    Blackheads! Please Help!

    Ok I've been on the regimen and it's worked amazingly i've been on it for almost 5 months but just recently i've noticed some tiny blackheads on my forehead. I work do damn hard to have little tiny blackheads ruining my day. PLEASE somebody help, I am literally almost in tears over this, i can't believe it. If anyone knows any remedies for blackheads please comment! I am really, really frustrated right now. PS. My skin does flake a lot and i'm wondering if this is a dead skin problem and I n
  14. I am a 23 year old woman. I took accutane for three months ending March 14th. To this day I am still shedding hundreds of hair a day. When will this end? I am worried that I will need to shave my head soon as my scalp is showing so badly. Please any comments, experiences, opinions, advice, support, would be greatly appreciated. I am FREAKING out. I have seen my GP as well as 3 derms. One deem said accutane should be out of my system in a month. What? The other derm said recovery is 3-6 mont
  15. Ok first off, has anyone ever taken minocycline HCL, not the regular minoycline ? I was just prescribed it yesterday and had no idea it was HCL instead of the normal one until today after school. So i took one pill this morning and around noon, i started having vision problems, then it lead to headaches and extreme nausea, like i was gonna throw up every 5 seconds or so. I had to go to the nurse to lay down for like 30 min and I felt alot better after that. But then like 20 min later, i was havi
  16. Hey Everyone! I'm 14 and I have moderate acne that's getting worse day by day. My derm prescribed me Accutane and I'll be starting it next week. I need to get blood work done (something I've never had done before). It seems like a pain to get a blood test each month but it's not my choice. Anyways, I need help. I'm curious to know how fast it works. See, I always wear makeup to cover up the pimples, which I've mastered, and I was wondering if you could still, like, wear makeup or not. I don't kn
  17. I was thinking about going on doxycycline for my acne and was wondering if anyone has ever tried it? What were your results and what was your experience? I've tried lymecycline and I've been on that for quite some time now (over 15 weeks) and it doesn't seem to have done anything at all so I'm quite disappointed and I really want something to work. Please leave me your experiences and if it worked for you!
  18. I'm on my second week and I've started cutting off part of my pills. First week I cut 1/4th off, now I'm cutting something like 2/3rds, next week will be halves, and then I'll be on the low dose pills ("shark week"). Then I'll start the half fragments, then the 2/3rds, then the 1/4ths, and maybe start cutting those in half too. I think it's time I stopped messing with my body's hormones with excess estrogen, I've been on birth control for about 4 years, I switched types and quit for something li
  20. Hi please please read until the end and give me your feedback. So I had a white head about 3 months ago which I unfortunately squeezed thinking it couldn't do damage. Fast forward 3 months later, I'm still dealing with what I think is an indented scar? I'm only 15 and NEVER had an indent so I'm panicking!!! It has improved a bit so far and it even looks completely flat and normal in certain lighting.. However in bad lighting it seems to cast a shadow? My mom (who notices everything about my skin
  21. So I was prescribed Sprinolactone two months ago and I have been on generic Yaz birth control for a few years now. My last period was four days late and I am two days into this months and I have only had light cramping. I read it's not as common to have this issue while on birth control but can anyone give me insight before I call my dermatologist? Has anyone else also had this issue? I am sexually active and it has been it has been freaking me out until I finally looked up the side effects of S
  22. About 4 days ago I was picking at a zit and popped it leaving me with a bloody wound which turned to a scab. The scab looked ugly and so I picked at it and now I think it might’ve turned to a scar. I have a reddish darkish ring around where the scab was and in the center it’s light like the color of my skin. I’m not sure if it’s still healing internally or if it’s going to remain like that. If anyone has advice I’d greatly appreciate it.
  23. First of all, I'd like to say that I've already noticed the irony of my username. I know this is easier said than done, but the overbearing negativity in this section of the forum is very destructive to some people's perception of themselves. When people go to this site, they do so for support and for good vibes. They are most likely down about their acne and are actively looking for solutions. In the meantime, when one clicks on this section, he or she shouldn't have to be bombarded with topic
