  1. Hello everybody! This is a new blog I will be starting which will consist of my life with acne and how I got through high school, community college, college, and now grad. A little background information about me. I have had acne since my senior year of high school and throughout my college career. I have taken multiple acne prescriptions throughout my life. Here is a list of some of the prescriptions: Benzoyl Peroxide Tretinoin Doxycycline Hyclate Clindamycin Phosphate Epiduo Bactri
  2. What angers me most about acne is all the missed opportunities it caused me to have during my teen years that I will never get back. I had no friends and never did anything exciting as a teen because I lived in isolation not by choice. I'm 21 now and have pretty much clear skin and I feel like I'm years behind everyone else because it socially stunted me and it's hard to start a social life from scratch as you get older.

  5. So... I'm a teenager and I am 15 years old. I have acne problems and i had pimples since 2010. I visited a dermatologist and he gave me some antibiotics and some cremes to use but they made my skin worse. 2 months ago i started taking accutane (isotretinoin) with my doctors permission . I saw some of my friends who had really bad acne getting rid of their acne with the same antibiotics that i took and i got sad but i didn't let that take me down. Then at school I saw a lot of people with clean f
  6. Hey everyone. This is my first time posting here so bare with me. I am a 13 year old boy, i used to have perfect skin about 8 months ago. I got a pimple once, and i would overreact and put tons of creams and products on it. And that would make me get more and more pimples. My acne started clearing up in the beginning of summer, but my family was going through a hard time, we had to sell our house and move everything in a week, with out a moving companie's help. This put a lot of stress on me and
  7. Isn't it wonderful that I last made a post on here five years ago and still haven't solved my acne problems -___- So, brief overview so as not to bore you (I'm sure no ones reading this anyway), I am 20 years old. In college. Had acne since I was 13. I've tried benzoyl peroxide, (works awesome as a spot treatment, not for prevention), salicylic acid, epiduo (great spot treatment too), some antibiotics that made me feel like vomiting 24/7, and I've finally made the decision to try accutane.
  8. Hi everyone so my name is Michael, I'm 15 years old from Canada and I suffer from nodular cystic acne. So for those of you who dont know what it is, nodular cystic acne is a severe form that happens deep within the skin (i think in the dermis), that is almost always painful and leaves acne marks! It's basically solid inflamed lesions on the skin that sometimes have white heads. I've personally been struggling with acne since grade 7, I'm only in grade 11 though but it's been a struggle both phys
  9. Are Dermatologists Experts in Acne?

    Click here to Skip Down to How to Find a Dermatologist Who Is an Acne Expert In most cases, you can successfully treat acne at home by following an appropriate skin care regimen. However, some people who have very severe acne or a hormonal imbalance may need to consult a dermatologist. All dermatologists have some familiarity with acne, but by far not all are acne experts. The formal training a dermatologist receives covers a huge number of...
  10. Hi, this is pretty much my first real post. Anyways, I wanted to share my thoughts on this kid at school who has it pretty bad. Cystic acne/nodules cover his face and I find it hard to look him in the eye. What I am seeking advice on however, is weather to feel bad for him or not. This kid was really mean to me in middle school and pretty much a jerk to everyone except his groupie friends. Did he have this coming to him? He is really quite shy nowadays and I just don't know. Any input wou
  11. Hi I'm John. This isn't related to acne that much, although other people may be experiencing something similar where it is related. Although acne did have some effect... Anyway, when I was around thirteen, I was shy. I didn't have acne then but add that in a year or two down the road and I'm even more shy I wasn't one to initiate a random conversation and so I didn't introduce myself to people. I did make friends, I wasn't super nerdy but I was pretty close to that. My school isn't very big c
  12. Long story short, when I was in high school I had mild acne, but it really bothered me. I ended up skipping too many classes on my "bad days" and ultimately had to leave school without finishing. I kind of slipped through the system with little notice. So now I am trying to finish my high school diploma, mostly through online courses. I recently signed up for a day class in which you stay for 3 hours a day and get that credit in one month, but ... yes, I am dropping out Monday, because of all
  13. Hey guys! I just wanted to get your opinions on this, as we are probably all in the same boat I have been on 20mg of accutane a day, for 5 weeks and for 4 days I've been on around 30mg a day as my derm recommended My skin has improved a lot but it's still very red and has a few active spots In 2 weeks I am going away on a school trip for over a week!! No one from school has ever seen me without make up on and make up is the only thing that helps with my confidence, kinda like a saf
  14. Well today was my first day back in two weeks in school.... And it wasn't fun.... Almost everyone came up and asked if I was okay. And it looks like I have worst welt looking things all over my face.....
  15. Hi Everyone, My name is Anthony and I'm a filmmaker from the UK. I'm currently writing a short film based on a teenager that suffers from acne. My intention is to make a compelling film that shows the difficulties that people who suffer from acne have to endure, especially through school life. The inspiration to make this film comes from my Mum who was bullied at school because of her acne. As someone who also suffered from acne, I know how difficult it can be. My intention is to make a
