  1. I have had back and shoulder acne for a good 3/4 years now and it is starting to really affect my confidence. Of course it has always been an issue for me, as it stops me from wearing the clothes I want as well as being constantly self-conscious on holiday. However, I have now reached the point where I need to get rid of it desperately. I want to start using the body regimen, but was looking for any success stories/ first-hand experiences so that I can see whether it is really worth investing in
  2. Hi friends, as you can see from the picture I have pretty severe looking scars on my shoulders/back. I jsut finished my accutane 6 month course and It has completely cleared up my face, which I'm happy with. However, would have been more happy if my back and shoulders were better as well. Can anyone suggest any short-term fixes where I could maybe cover up these scars with some sort of concealer or make-up products? Also if you have any suggestions concercing treatments that could possibly imp
  3. Hi, i'm 14 and I've struggled with body acne for around 2 years. I feel like it's ruining my life. I can't wear any of the clothes I'd like to wear, especially dresses and tank tops, and I can't go swimming. I wash my skin in the morning and take a shower at night because I have hockey every day in the afternoon. I use the bp and then moisturize. It's working a little I guess but I want to be able to finally be confident and wear a dress to this dance coming up. Can i have some help? Does anyone
  4. It's been about 2 years and my chest acne hasn't gone away. I can't figure out what is causing it. I wear clean clothes, shower twice a day, tried different acne cleanse body washes, tried a healthier diet. Yet it refuses to go away, and the scars stay, as you can see in the pic. Can anyone figure out what might be the cause? Its only on my chest and shoulders, no where else. Please help, I'm starting to get my body in shape but this acne is embarrassing
  5. Hey all, here's the deal: I had moderate face acne throughout high school. I'm 21 now, and the acne is a lot better there, but still comes and goes a bit. Right now I'd say it's mild, maybe a little worse. In high school I was prescribed BP 10%, which ended up completely burning my face. It was miserable, and took over a year for the redness to die back down after I stopped using BP entirely (face still is probably redder than it should be because of this). For a couple years now, all I
  6. INVITING YOU TO MY JOURNEY WITH ACCUTANE...I AM 32 YEARS OLD WITH MODEREATE ACNE STARTED OUT WITH SEVERE ACNE AND THROUGH TACKLING WITH ALL THE CREAMS AND 3 STEP SYSTEMS OUT THERE I JUST CANNOT GET RID OF IT. THROUGH NUMEROUS VISITS WITH MY DERMATOLOGIST SHE HAS FINALLY GAVE IN AND PRESCRIBED THE ACCUTANRE FOR ME..YAY!! TRUTH IS TO GET TO THE MODERATE STAGE THAT I AM IN NOW I JUST STOPPED WITH ALL THE CREAMS AND ANTIBOITICS. I WENT STRICTLY CLEANSING MY FACE WITH CETEPHIL DAILY CLEANSER AND MOIS
  7. Does Physically Irritating the Skin Cause Body Acne?

    Acne is a disease most known for its appearance on the face, but it can also occur anywhere on the body, except on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. It is primarily an inflammatory disease, and anything that increases inflammation, such as irritating the skin, may increase acne symptoms. Acne that is the result of physical irritation of the skin is called acne mechanica. It is now generally recognized and known that...
  8. Well I am a 22 yr old male that has suffered from painful cystic like acne for years. I often get very bad and painful breakouts that cover my upper back, lower back, upper arms and shoulders. Like most people that come to this site I was desperate for a solution therefore I tried everything, I must add that I have always ate healthy and workout at least 5 day per week. Here are some of the remedies I have tried to treat my acne, some with varying results but none with permanent results: turmeri
  9. Hello all! I made an account so I could post a question and get advice from the most reputable source I know. So here's my issue- I've always had acne on my face and my body but my shoulders would have maybe 2-3 tiny bumps at any given time. Now, after being on steroids for a week after being hospitalized, I've gotten a bunch more tiny red bumps all over my shoulder and a little bit down my arm. Is this definitely caused by the steroids since that's the only thing that's changed? How can I get r
  10. Hi! I am a 24 year old female who has always been told how lucky I am to have such clear/perfect skin! Well all of that has changed in a matter of months and I am not sure what the heck happened or what to do! I didn't start washing my face with face wash until I was about 20. I've never really used lotion on my face either and the only make up I've owned up until recently is mascara and eyeshadow. So I started going to yoga at the end of May and around the same time I noticed a few pimples
  11. I've suffered from moderate to severe acne on my back and shoulders since I was a teenager and have tried most everything under the sun, none of which made a huge difference. After yet another trip to see my dermatologist this spring to try the latest and greatest antibiotic, she suggested I try a new over the counter product called Powderma. I'm happy to report it has made all the difference in the world. I apply it every morning when I get out of the shower and although I still get a ble
