  1. Ok, this is going to be a long post so bear with me, please. I am desperate for help. I am 27 years old and back in school so I have no insurance and can't see a dermatologist. In August, I decided to switch from Rodan & Fields Unblemished to TULA. I was wanting to get away from putting all of the harsh chemicals on my skin. I had extremely mild acne growing up and there really wasn't a need for me to be using the product. When I started using TULA I developed these small bumps around my
  2. Hello, This is a long post but I've tried to summarize my situation in the first couple paragraphs. The rest is background information. I've been lurking here for a while seeking advice for my own problem but haven't posted until now. The community seems great here and I appreciate any advice you may have. I've been searching for cure for several years now and have made some improvement but not complete. I know everyone says it but I feel like I've tried everything..
  3. Hi, I've never posted on any forum of any sort in my life, but this problem is so aggravating that I thought I needed some advice. I am not too sure if I should have went to a hair forum or a skin one so I think I may just post on both just to get a better understanding of my problem. I am a 17 year old male and since March/April of last year I have noticed an excessively itchy scalp along with these whitish round and waxy "plugs" that are attached to the root of my hair. When I scratch them (wh
  4. Has anyone else had experience with taking Valium, Xanax, or other Benzodiazepine drugs and either causing acne or clearing it up. Or going off any of these medications which resulted in acne. I stopped Valium about the same time I developed acne and I'm wondering if it is related.
  5. Hello I am 20 years old (male) and have been battling mild acne since high school. I am 2 years post Accutane. My only problem area at the moment is my nose, the sides and creases of it specifically. I have pictures!!! I have done alot of research towards the condition of my nose but cant quite pin point a diagnoses. The side of my nose consist of clearish-tan colored plugs. Some of these plugs are very hard and when far enough out of the skin can be plucked with tweezers. The other plugs remai
  6. I suffered with acne for over 30 years and tried every possible remedy with no results except extreme skin devastation, then developed seb derm. Again I tried lotion after potion, after diet, after treatment, with no success. Then I discovered a hand held LED light gizmo that worked wonders.............(see my other posts). Although this cleared me up like 80% or more, I still had some blocked pores, redness, flaky patches and scaly bits. Recent research led me to a cream by La Roche Posay c
  7. Hi all! I've been a lurker on this site for many, many years and have tried lots of the suggestions and remedies from many of you, sadly to no avail. I took horrendous chickenpox 38 years ago that left my face with a fair bit of pitting and at the same time, I developed acne. From then on in, my life has been blighted, with every day being a struggle. Ok, I have tried every lotion and potion in the book, tried food elimination, herbal treatments, roaccuatane, antibiotics, you name it, I
  8. Long story short - Ive been on accutane 3-4 times. Im 26 and a male. The last 6 months my acne has become pretty bad. My picking probably makes it looks ten times worse, but anyway... I get so many clogged pores all over the face. My clogged pores are filled with white stringy stuff. I also get sebum plugs and blackheads all over the face. My back has tons of smaller/medium sized pimples(which arent terribly inflamed until i squeeze) but they have a hard white sebum substance in them. I also
  9. Hi all, I have had what a lot of people call sebum plugs in my nose and some places on my forehead for about 5-7 years. For those of you who don't know what these are, they aren't blackheads or pimples, but rather little things in my pores that look like grains of rice. They can come out using the oil method, which involves massaging the skin with jojoba oil, but I don't like doing this as it is messy and takes time every day. I've never gotten treatment for them because I have always been w
