  1. My name is Mariam. I'm 16 years old. I have noticed some discoloring parts in my skin. Mostly in the side areas of my face yet I am not sure if it's a scar. My mom says it's still a pimple but I find it odd. It's been there for months. What do they look like to you? Are they scars? What kind? If they are what can I do to treat it? I am very worry about this
  2. So I decided to sign up on acne forums because I've given up on searching and trying other peoples advice. I want a straight forward answer as well. I will timeline my acne battle below Age: 13 I begin to have small yellow heads and black heads appearing... Age: 14 It starts getting worse and I begin getting small cysts, at this point I take it as puberty kicking in... Age: 15 Probably my WORST period of my life. Seriously. I also had my holiday in Europe and I was on accutane for
  3. Hello, I am 13 Years of Age and have suffered from light - moderate acne for the past year and a half. I have cut out most stress from my life, ex foliate 3 times a week, wash my face two times a day and have cut out most processed and dairy products from my life. I have always had forehead acne, i know that hormones are a part of it but i see other 13 year olds with flawless skin. When i first started ex foliating it has made a big improvement and sicne cutting out bad foods and eating foods l
  4. Being only 17 and male, and getting told by my mum and 2 doctors that this is probably just puberty causing my acne, I was wondering ... how do you know if it's because of puberty? If it was, wouldn't I have gotten it at 15? I mean, I got about 2 - 3 tiny pimples every 3 months last year. My voice broke at about 14, had a growth spurt at 15 or something, but I didn't grow body hair, such as under my arms or the low part of my stomach (snail trail) till the start of this year. And thats when I
  5. Hi, Hey, Sup! Welcome back to my blog. This entry is going to be mostly about the psychological effects of acne and how I learned to deal with it. It's no secret acne can be embarrassing, no matter how old you get most people feel self conscious about how they look and acne can exacerbate these feelings. When you have acne its very easy to want to hide it from the world because it both looks and feels bad. Every time you walk past someone you wonder what they think when they see you
  6. Can a 14-year-old girl start Accutane if she hasn't began menstruating yet? She has moderate acne that scars very bad and is starting to travel down to her chin and on her jaw line. Her face is covered in millions of skin colours bumps, along with many pimples and a few pustules and cysts. Can she take it if she hasn't started her period? Will it mess it up in the future? Will she be able to have children in the future? I've had a look around and it looks fine, but just want
  7. Hey guys, I'm a 19 year old chinese male living in Singapore (nope singapore is definitely not in china). Like most teenagers, I too have a common skin condition - acne. Unfortunately, I belong to the smaller and unluckier group of people who has to take drastic measures to control their skin condition. Let me talk about where I stay. Singapore is a tropical country with no seasons. Basically, it is summer all year long and sometimes monsoon. Not to mention the humidity level is extremely h
  8. Hello everyone. OK So here is my situation. I am 20 years old male turning 21 in September. About 2 weeks ago I had a sinus infection so the doctor prescribed me with Antibiotics (Amoxicillin). I took it for 1 week and by the end of the first week I had crystal clear skin not a single pimple. But now 2 weeks on I suddenly got a more greasy skin when I touch my face but it does not shine when you look at my face and I got so many whiteheads on both sides of my cheek and forehead and 1 or two on

  10. Hi, I am a 17 year old male and I suffer acne. I wouldn't say it's severe but it's definitely not moderate. It's gotten worse. It started when I was going into high school, but up until that point I had great skin and felt superior to everyone around me who had my skin now. Which makes me think I was a late bloomer because now those people have clear skin. I get white heads all over but mainly under my nose near my mustache area and my chin near my mouth. It's everywhere on my forehead and scatt
  11. Hey guys, I've been having problems with acne since sometime in 2013. I was in around 7th grade, and I tried several products that never helped me. On the summer of 2014 was when I got more noticeable redness on my cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. I have tried several products, such as: Effaclar Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Dead Sea masks Clean&Clear Minancora (foreign topic product for acne, etc) Rosacea treatment etc. Most did not work at all, none worked 100% but some did do some wo
