  1. I went to the gym a few days ago and my muscles are still hurting. This is very unusual for me and I've noticed a lot more aches and pains. Not to mention my back and neck hurt after sitting for a while. I figure this must be associated with the accutane as I've read similar stories in the past. The worst was this morning when I tried to blow-dry my hair; my joints (elbows) got so sore I had to keep taking breaks. I'm surprised the joint pain has happened this early and worried that is a ba
  2. I’ve been suffering from acne since I was 13 and I am 16 now turning 17 soon and the acne has only just gotten worse. There was a period in time where my skin started to clear up when I applied Tea Tree Oil to it every night but it dried my skin out so I stopped using it and my acne just came back way worse as soon as I stopped, so I tried to go back to it but now my skin just rejects it and nothing has changed. Ive heard the amazing reviews on the Indian healing clay mask so I got some an
  3. Hi everyone! I was hoping to get some help here regarding a scab from some cystic acne I had around Christmas time. I got an under-skin pimple on my chin, picked it (as I often do) and it created a wound. Usually these wounds take a few days to heal for me, sometimes up to two week. The issue is that it seems that the scab is stuck in the healing. It's not an open wound anymore, but rather just a scab with the normal "thick" dark brown/red skin over it. I've tried peeling it off to see if the sk
  4. okay so after crying for about 40 minutes and seeing so many terrible things on google I have come to you for help. pretty much j need to identify what is going on, on my face, and figure out if I can treat it since I do not have insurance. about a week ago I developed a zit that was hard, headless, and painful on my cheek. pretty much if I was looking forward it would line up with my pupil but but down far enough it's lined up with my upper lip. after checking it or everyday it became painf
  5. Hey guys, it's been awhile since I posted. Ive been on Accutane but had to take a break when I got sick with mono. I've been back on it now for awhile but it's not healing up certain spots. (I'll explain) it started with 2 spots below my neck that completely swelled up and began draining pus. One side has healed, the other has not. These spots are now on my back as well. They are so painful, everytime I move it's like a hot knife digging into me. They break open in the shower and leave big deep
  6. I'm hoping that I'm putting this in the right thread here but I need some help with healing a couple of open sores that I have ATM. Pretty much I've come to accept the fact that I have a problem with picking/popping things on my face and I tend to do it more when I'm under stress. I've been under more stress as of late so long story short I was stupid and picked a couple sores on my face lol. To avoid me picking at these more for the next couple of days (having these come to gross, crusty sca
  7. So I've reduced my BP usage to once a day, and experienced a tiny bit less flakiness on my skin. I will progressively increase it to twice a day after a few weeks. But recently, my friends, and family told me that my cheeks are abnormally red. I've seen videos and read many reviews on the regimen where it explains BP usage might cause redness. But I'm worried that redness on my cheeks are pretty serious because it looks like I've been seriously sun burnt. I only have acnes on my cheeks, and it's
  8. hello everyone someone please answer im begging you.

  9. My sides of my lips are an actual state right now. i'm coming towards my 5th month on Roaccutane (Been now 60mg during this month do 40mg for the rest) and I've had these cracked lips for over a month now so they started whilst I was on 40mg. it literally doesn't make any difference how much i drink, how much lip balm I put on etc they look like this all the time! The sides of the lips usually peel everyday as if they're shedding skin or something haha! They are even hard to cover with mak
  10. Was sick and had a sore throat a month ago where I thought it could be strep, however it passed a few days after and I was just left with a lingering cough/stuffy throat. Ever since then, I have had on and off throat pain but nothing really to pay much attention to. I would also have a cough that was a noticeable but I wasn't sick or anything. Now, my throat has been hurting very bad ever since 2 days ago, and I think it may be related to my tonsils because it is localized pain in the back of my

    A bad day when acne comes out to play!
  12. Hey guys. I signed up specifically to share this with you as I spent hours researching what was actually on my face. I had a cantankerous sore that started off as a fairly small pimple that I thought had popped on the inside. I left it alone for a while but could still feel a tiny bump underneath my skin, so stupidly I squeezed at it too early and it turned into a quarter sized sore I naturally thought was a cyst. Except this massive red lump was not behaving as a cyst. I tortured it with BP a
  13. Hi all, Just to share my story- So literally my late teens was when I developed what my Doctor called acne, to me I didn't realise as it wasn't an agressive form of acne that is pretty common among teens. Anyway of course I was open to anything to help me skin and and was soon prescribed onto the Yasmin pill. My acne did clear, but I hated taking the pills and soon enough just the thought of swallowing one more pill made me feel sick and with suffering the awful side effects that come with t
  14. I have read A lot of Topics on here related to scalp acne on here and I plan on picking up a few things then i started to look at the dates on these posts and began to wonder if there is anything better now. I have a few things that i worry about and am going to add here. (it may not matter I'm not sure just thought it would be cool to ask) 1. I believe this contributes hugely to my scalp acne problem I am a mixed girl (black/white) i have very thick curly hair it gets very dry. and the things
  15. Hi guys, Firstly its amazing to be part of this community. We all know what we are going through, and that already makes me feel slightly better as I sit and type this message with an ice pack to my face to calm down my massive break out, but later i'll talk about that. Since I hit puberty I have never NOT had spots. I wouldn't say I have acne, although when I break out...i BREAK OUT. I can go through months of clear skin, then suddenly one comes, I feel another, a family arrives, then my
  16. Hi new to acne org, so I’m not sure if this is the right place to post something like this. Is anyone able to tell me what these ‘dots’ are on my face, so far I have tried to ice, use ‘nixoderm’ and tea tree oil and nothing has really affected them. I have attached a photo bellow, the bottom one is quite sore to touch - can’t think of any other information but please leave any advice or reccomendations, thanks!
  17. So I've had this pretty bad acne/rash since Mid May after doing a juicing cleanse. I'm just trying to determine what this is and how to treat it. I have never had acne like this I follow a organic vegan gluten free diet and don't really eat anything processed on a regular basis. My face is oily in the pics because I've been using coconut oil with tea tree oil and this is just after applying. My face is itchy and sore in certain areas. I am just not sure what to do anymore.
  18. Looking for some help with my acne, pictures of my acne and the products i use. Ive tried cutting dairy from diet it had not effect. I wash my face 2x a day in the shower then at night before bed. I drink lots of water and excersise regularly.
  19. A few days ago a small zit between my temple and eye evolved into a monstrous knot. It's hard and round (a out the size od a dime or penny), but the swelling has spread to my eye (in the morning ings, my upper eye lid is puffy, but under my eye remains puffy and sometimes bruised). The sore is HARD and very painful, red, and a whitish scabby crater thing on top. I've put alcohol, moisturizer, generic acne wash, heat, ice... but it doesn't seem to phase it. But itt HURTS. It may be infected (
  20. Hi everyone. I'm on my 3,5 month on Accutane, and my skin was getting thinner the first couple of months. But now, it's extreme. Even adding water to my face, a mild wind-blow or laying on my pillow hurts and sting. I know it can be a side-effect, but really? This extreme? Hope to hear some answers, wishing you a good day.
  21. So I was prescribed Zineryt by my doctor 8 days ago. I don't have acne, but I have scars left over from different spots as my skin is very sensitive. After my first application, I woke up the next day and had many painful spots on my chin. Over the next couple of days, I'd developed a total of 10 sore spots on my chin and two on my cheek. It was mortified! 8 days later, they've gotten better with 2 applications a day, however they still haven't completely disappeared. I have about 4, very sore f
  22. This is when my lips began to peel Hi! Im on a week and a day of accutane (generic brand)... and the first layer of my lips just peeled off ! Like completely... my lips are BLOOD BRIGHT RED and swollen... I feel like this is even worse than super dry chapped lips? I have tried a million chapsticks Dr dans.. everything. My derm even prescribed me 2% cortisone.. but I think he thought my lips were dry because they aren’t flaky or peeling anymore they are just super uncomfortable and it’s h
  23. My acne scab had started to dry around the edges so I thought it was safe to come off. When I pulled it off, I guess one tiny area wasn't ready so it bled slightly. Now there's this dark red mark with a slight indentation where it bled. The indentation has drying scabbish skin in it so I'm assuming it's still healing. What do I do?
