    So, the picture on the left is what my acne looked like at it's worse about 6 months ago. It was HORRIBLE. I know it looks horrible, but what was the worst was how painful it was. I had tried several different medications and I finally decided to do Accutane ( I was so against it at first ). My reasoning behind not wanting to take Accutane was that if the drug could have the potential to do something harmful to my body that could affect me later in life, is it really worth taking it only to avoi

  7. Ok past two weeks I've been breaking out inbetween my eyebrows, my skin gets oily her but never usually break out this much here. Using a come done extractor a hard sebum like clogged pore thing comes out and it leaves a brown mark which takes forever to go and fade the slightest. Possible causes: Gym sweat from cardio, I try to wash my face as soon as possible after a gym session however sometimes i shower and wash my face a bit later like 30 minutes later so maybe the sweat hardens which c

  10. Hi, 2 weeks ago I start used Apple cider vinegar topically thinking it would help with the pink/red spots on my face but I haven't really seen any change, if anything it's worse. My skin is smooth but looks horrible you can see the pics below. How do I get rid of these spots (((( ?? Some people say it's a couple months but idk, and if it is, how do I speed up the process?
  11. Hi first time posting on here but I have been reading for a while. Am curious as to what I have on my face, i don't really get pimples anymore but my cheeks are full of what you see in the pic. Is this marks or scarring? And what will be the best way to get rid of it regardless of price aslong as its not too expensive?
  12. I am 37 male, with back acne. no acne on face, but the occasional pimple. I'm currently on accutane day 18 or 19 at 40mg a day. The side effects I am experience at the present time are dry chapped lips, pain in the right shoulder joint/socket, slow healing after pimple popping, depression and anxiety, gas and constipation, sensitive skin, and light. I can deal with everything no problem but unfortunately I have surgery coming up. I've been waiting to get booked since January and I thought
  13. (This just happens to be my very first forum so please bare with me) I have been suffering from acne from the age of 13. I developed nasty, red, inflammed nodular cyst that seemed to swallow my face. I went to the dermatologist, where she told me the obvious and put me on Accutane for 6 months. The accutane worked wonders, cleared of my skin quite nicely, and for about 3 years, I had very nice skin. However, half way through my Junior year. my face suddenly became out of control. The painfu

    To be clear: I have done nothing special in the time between this picture and the next 5. This may have just been one of those days where I had a few more swollen and noticeable pimples, the scars have stayed the same for the most part. This one was taken under yellowish lighting, the rest were done in a bring, naturally lit bathroom. That could be the difference.
  15. My faces feels smooth but it looks like it has tiny bumps on my cheek idk If this is scaring can someone help ?
  16. Please tell me what kind of scaring I have, how bad is it, as well as my acne and how bad it is. I do not consume dairy and I drink plenty of water and get moderate exercise, and I am currently trying to take Zinc and Vitamin D-3 for my acne, as well as using a Clearasil "Acne + Marks" face wash which doesn't seem to be doing anything even with the help of a scrubbing brush..then I use a Equate Moisturizing Lotion, and sometimes I'll use Clearasil Benzoyl Peroxide. I do not have any access wh
  17. Hi, so I just made this and I'm not entirely sure I'm using it right but here goes nothing. So I'm twenty years old and recently started suffering from moderate to severe acne. I never had acne (very rarely an occasional zit) until about a year ago. What started off as what I though was just a break out during that time of the month has become a nightmare I can't get rid of. All of my acne is located on my cheeks and chin, most of it is blind and located under the skin. I also get the same type

I also have what I call a rashy forehead a sits really getting me down now. I habe always thought it might be hormonal as I suffer from pcos but I just need to do something now as it is really depressing me I was once given a topical solution to use when I was about 15 but it burned my cheeks so I was advised to stop using
  19. Hi all! I've come here with a few questions for you and would love any and all input First off, my nose has been red for almost 8 years now (I'm 20) and I'd just like some opinions on it, I've had severe acne since about 13 and it's really taken its toll on my life, my confidence has always been awful, I've struggled to make meaningful relationships with all but a few people, and that's due to going to school with those people, I've recently moved to a new area and although some of my old fr

  22. Hello everyone. I'm Lore, I'm a 23 year old guy from the UK and I'm going through a really tough time. This will probably be a long post, but if anyone is around to read it, I would really appreciate it. I'll try to keep it as brief as possible! I guess I could just use some support. (Hence why I have posted this here, instead of the accutane logs section). Basically, I am a depressant on roaccutane. Now, before I go any further -- No, the accutane did NOT cause my depression. Acne and my skin

As many of you understand, it's so distressing having to live with bad skin so to take a picture and post it on the internet feels almost crazy!

  25. Hi All, I need some advice if possible. Im a 24year old male and have suffered from acne since my early teens. When I was around 16 I went to a dermatologist and he put me on 20mg of rroaccutaine for 6 months. Before I started my acne was mild/moderate but once I started my acne became extremely severe.
