  1. I'm sick of waking up each day and being scared to see my face because maybe I got a new blemish. I'm sick of cringing every time I look in the mirror. I'm sick of slathering on gross sunscreen and avoiding the sun so my red marks don't get darker. I'm sick of seeing my pits in the most unflattering of light. I'm sick of piling on spot treatments and watching each pimple to see if it's getting bigger. I'm sick of every papule that's a little too big and being scared I'll get cystic acne. I'm sic
  2. Well, it's been one month sort of. I see improvement and I'm 80% sure I've went through the IB already. But why am I seeing improvement so early? I read other people's story and they don't see improvement until like month 3 or something but I began in day 25ish I hope y'all don't see this as me bragging but I'm a bit worried. I'm trying to upload pics but it's not letting me. I will try again in a couple hours
  3. Ive been on Oratane (Australian Accutane) for nearly 21 weeks now and have seem a massive improvements with minor side effects. Have been on 20mg every day, 40mg mon, wed, fri. My skin is brand new and im so happy with it. My derm said that my next visit may be my last one, although i still have some teeny tiny little bumps on my cheeks. Is accutane supposed to clear everything? Or does it just clear up the big massive ones? And im scared to go off it incase the acne comes back.
  4. I've seen several friends go visit China, and come back with 2x worse acne. One guy actually didn't have acne, and he came back with face full of it. I guess the main reason is the poor air quality there. I'm 18, and don't really get breakouts anymore after I started working out and drinking lots of green tea. But I'm afraid the trip is going to agrevate my acne problem. What can I do to prepare for the potential onslaught?
  5. Hello and Happy Halloween! Ever since middle school, I have suffered from pretty severe cystic acne. My mood is largely based on how bad the cysts on my face are. When I get cystic acne, I get it bad. Recently I was suffering from a cyst on my forehead the size of a golf ball! These have cysts have made me suicidal in the past, and usually throw me in an extreme depression. So that's my acne situation, and I was prescribed accutane and can pick it up tomorrow. I am having second thoughts
