  1. Day 1 - I am starting of at a low dosage of 10mg/day as told by my dermatologist. I just took my first pill right after a heavy meal as I heard heavy meals help the pill to absorb better. My routine consists of gentle cleansing, toner, and moisturizer day and night. I will wear a cc cream with SPF 50 if I go out. Day 2 - I have not experienced any side effects, nor has there been any change in my acne. My friends tell me to try rubbing raw potato on my skin, as it can help clear acne fast
  2. Hard to imagine this was the end result. This is what dedication can bring!
  3. This was my acne almost a year ago, since then my skin has cleared up dramatically. However, it did not come easy. I had ups and downs and a whole bunch of crazy breakouts but I powered through it and I cleared my face.
  4. Hi there guys I was just wondering if someone could tell me what severity of acne I have. I have had acne since I was about 12-13 much worse than it is now. Currently I use epiduo every night with aveeno moisturiser afterwards and I use a black pore mask once a week. However despite this I continue to suffer with large red pimples under the skin that are painful and take a long time to go away. Does anyone have any tips to help get rid of these because they make me extremely unhappy and make me
  5. I’ve been struggling with terrible bacne for nearly 4 years now and no behind the counter medications have worked. Does anyone have any suggestions that helped with they’re acne?
  6. Hi everyone, So I am 10 days into the Regimen. I've experienced a fair amount of dryness, as promised. I haven't tried the jojoba oil because I'm afraid to add oil to my skin, but I have used lots and lots of moisturizer. I've been especially dry on my chin and around my mouth. I've been pretty impressed by Dan's treatment --- it dries clear, is really lightweight, and allows me to put on my make-up after moisturizer without it looking fake or strange. The big cyst on my right cheek is
  7. I'm new here, but i'm in desperate need of advice, and I just need to speak out about my experience suffering from acne. See, like alot of you, i suffered with severe cystic acne. I lived with it for a year, and i had to go on Accutane to get rid of it, however it seems that the deep scarring and redness that results from such severe cases has barely changed my situation. Although many of you have also suffered from severe acne, I feel that after reading some threads on how acne has affected p
  8. Ok, well you probably know why I'm here, I have acne. Terrible acne. And being a nearly 16 year old girl, I have enough to be dealing with without worrying about people judging me because of my skin...I have horrible red cysts literally covering my cheeks and chin, and all along the sides of my face ,and the marks from them don't go away... so I thought I'd make a blog here so people who are going through the same thing can read it, as none of my friends have acne to my extent, and I feel so alo
  9. Hello everyone! I'm new here but really hoping someone has had similar experiences or has an idea of something that may help me. I've had acne since I was 12 or 13, so at least 7 years. I've tried salicylic acid, Rodan + Fields (the Unblemish line and the Soothe line), some Korean treatment for acne + sensitive skin (which actually sometimes seemed to help), essential oils/tea tree oil (used to help more than it does now), various face masks, acne creams, antibiotics, etc. and now using Young
  10. Ok guys .. so I'm on my second week of tretinoin and my skin just gets WORSE AND WORSE and I'm crying everyday and not going out anymore . I don't have much drying anymore . I have deep cysts with no head on my left cheek . Please help and comment if you think anything can help .. I'm desperate do you think I should go on Accutane ? Or continue the retin a cream ? Or try something else ? Thank you guys so much
  11. Hello Everyone. I am male 23 years old. I have had acne for 4-5 years now. I have exhausted all treatment options (i think),I think I have some rare type of acne which was misdiagnosed. Need suggestion and advice on what to do next. Let's start from the beginning. So 4-5 years ago, I started getting mild acne on My face , Forehead and severe pimples on My chest and behind the ears on the lower part which would often break by themselves and bleed with no puss. The facial and chest acne however
  12. In desperate need of any advice!! I had to stop taking birth control in November due to significant issues with depression, and my skin was doing pretty well up until 2-3 months ago when it started to all of a sudden become worse than it has ever been. I've been using 3% adapalene on my face in addition to Curology mix (azelaic acid, zinc pyrithione, clindamycin mix) and my face is NEARLY clear with only occasional breakouts on my jawline, which I can deal with. My face has never been so clea
  13. Hello everybody. Before I start acne took over my life and those who have it really know what I'm talking about... It's difficult to post a picture so I'm going to ask you the severity of my face. It's all genetics for me as my dad had very problematic skin during his teenage years. I sometimes don't leave the house due to the redness.. which drugstore products would be really helpful for my type of skin..? - it gets really oily at the end of the day - kind of sensitive - a little bit te
  14. Hey guys! I'm taking accutane for 5 and a half months now on a low dose of 20mg/day with a weight of 80kg. So, I got as many pills as I could in Germany just right before I went to Australia, where I am staying for the next year. Accutane cleared me up completely and after the second months there was no breakout at all anymore. However, I used to have really bad acne, so I am very afraid that it will come back if i'd stop after the 6th month, when I'm gonna be out of drugs. So making an appoin
  15. I can't even find the strength to go to college anymore. I have to make my whole family switch tables at a restaurant just so we don't get direct light over our heads that emphasizes every single one of the thousand pimples that I have, and I have to face the ground every time there's sunlight. Everything either hurts or itches or both, everything is red, and people are so rude, they can't even look me in the eye, their sight always wanders around my face. Everyone that meets me thinks they have
  16. Hello everyone on Acne.org, I never thought I would end up posting on here but I’m at a dead end with my skin and it’s starting to make everything else harder in my life. I’m 20 and I’ve had acne for 2 years now and just finished a 1 year course of accurate. In the photos you can see my skin 2 weeks post accutane and one in direct lighting. I don’t know what to do and at this point I feel like I’ll always feel demented, I just need some advice on what I should do.

    Day 10

    From the album: Doxycycline Progress

    Day 10 of doxy. No improvement. At least to me there seems to be nothing better.
  18. From the album: 30 mg Accutane experience

    The day before my first pill. This awful nodulocystic acne began around three months ago. I had moderate acne in high school but NOTHING this severe and rarely had a pimple below my eyes. I'm blaming hormones, but maybe I have a gluten sensitivity or something. Keep in mind that I'm also cutting out gluten! Anyway, I'm very eager to see how my accutane treatment goes and I'm happy to have somewhere to record it. So here it goes
  19. I recently moved to anew place. Some place very hot and humid. I have very oily skin and also don’t have an AC to help stop oiliness and sweating. In exchange, I drink lots of water and have a constant sleeping schedule (Sleep at 10 - Wake at 6). Not only that, I work out. I have the same diet as I’ve had for all my life but this is the first time I’ve ever had THIS SEVERE of a break out. I started using Cetaphil Daily Cleanser. I apply it on my DRY skin, a method I learned fr

  23. From the album: Spironolactone (100mg) + Minocycline (200mg) Progress

    All my acne has vanished after two weeks of taking spironolactone (100mg) and minocycline (200mg), but I am left with a lot of redness and light scarring. Currently using an aspirin honey mask once a day.
  24. I finally have some time on my hands to sit down and write this post. I was keeping a blog on here, but I hadn't updated it in a while and I guess it got deleted. My story: I hardly ever got acne when I was in high school. If I did, it was mostly on my forehead and cheeks, but it was very mild. In my early twenties, I started noticing that I had acne pretty much all the time. It was concentrated on the lower half of my face, and sometimes between my eyebrows. I started using a lot of over t
