  1. Hi readers I guess this is my 1 year and 2 months on differin. My situation right now is 70% better. The rest is uncontrol acne that would keep coming. I start to think that this is the most I could get from differin and benzac. I still have pastule, papule and cyst 2 - 3 in each week. Eventhough, I apply benzac all over my face at noght and spot benzac on the cyst itself, it does no effect or little effect to the cyst. My dermatologist recommend me to change to retin-a. Has anyone ever switch

  3. Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me out and ease the stress from this lump on my cheek bone! On the June 29th before I slept I noticed I had a small lump under the skin and immediately thought it was going to be a large spot, it didn't hurt and as soon as I noticed it I felt it was getting bigger in the short space of 30 minutes. I applied some Lush - mask of Magnaminty to help ease it, but in the morning it had grown an became a nice red colour. Over the next few weeks the redness h
  4. Hi. I am 14 years old and I have moderate acne on my face, back and chest. I'm using Duac, a special shower gel and oral tablets and since seeing a dermatologist, my skin is getting better. However, I have a white raised spot on my cheek and I have no clue what it is. I'm 95% sure its not 'milia' and doubt it is a white head as there is no redness around it and it's a little too big to be one. I have had one of these spots on the other side of my face before and I although it
  5. Hi I had a spot on the side of my nose for more than a week, I used ice, steamed my face, put sudocrem on it and used a turmeric paste . but when I steamed it, it came to a head and when I washed my face with a gentle cleanser it would pop and start to bleed and once the pus came out it would start to go red. As I am currently on accutane my face is going dry and around the spot the skin is dry and noticeable. And it keeps coming to a head and bleeds and now it is dark brown/purple and looks r
  6. Hi guys, Got a question for you. I've been on the DKR for 6 weeks now with some good results but I've still got these stubborn red marks spot-like things that won't go away! They have no head(no pus) and are pinkish coloured so I don't know if I would classify them as a papule. They are also pretty soft and slightly raised and don't hurt when I touch them. They are all on my cheeks and I have about 6 of them. Once these are gone, I will be 95% clear! What could they be and how sh
  7. Hello im new to the forum and i really hope you can help me as this is really giving me alot of emotional stress 3 months ago i had a spot on my head, i put my sisters cream on it and it went very dark, i left it for a while thinking it would go, but it formed into a spot which had a hole in the middle, so I poked it with a needle and squeezed it and stringy pus came out, I am indian and my skin colour does not match the scar and it is highly noticable, its giving me alot of tension, stres
  8. Hello everyone, I am new to this website but I have been finding it really helpful in the last hour that I joined. I am 16 years old, and I know that is young for this type of site but i need helpful advice! I had mild to moderate acne in 8th grade, and the summer going into 9th. I got put on liquid medications to put on in the morning and before bed from the dermatologist, but i wasn't finding that they were improving my skin at all. So, as it got worse and i got more self conscious about it, I
  9. Skin Condition Skin redness seems to be minimal like it usually is Lots of acne marks still on my cheeks, one whitehead on my left cheek No whiteheads on my chin this morning which is a nice surprise Just like yesterday my skin was quite dry and flakey. Dryness around my pimples (yay) Not as dry around my eyes as yesterday (yay) Not as dry around my mouth (yay) But this is still the dryest area of my face my forehead looks relativel
  10. So basically I broke out last week in little tiny pimple like bumps on my cheeks so I did my research and what I came across was that it could possibly be yeast present on the skin due to a parasite in the colon. So I went onto eBay and purchased "p-cleanse" capsules and it works as sort of a herbal antioxidant because it is anti bacterial and anti fungal. It contains a blend of capricylic acid, olive leaf, shiitaki, cinnamon and other herbs (I also did my research on all these ingredients and h
  11. I’ve been using the treatment for about 4 week, but I had to skip 2-3 days since my skin got REALLY flakey. Ever since I started using the treatment, I get these random deep spots that lasts for ages, which did not happen so frequently before. They also seem to appear at the most random places all over my cheeks, places I havent really experienced acne before. What is going on? It really demotivates me from continuing the treatment. My skin definitely looks worse than before I started using it…
  12. What do you think to be better and why? On me, I know that popping some spots on my face leads to spreading, whereas other times the spot has gone and not returned. I know it’s not just me who wants to weigh out the pros and cons.
  13. Hi, I have a spot above my upper lip which I have had for the last few months. It is not painful and is a lump under the skin. It never comes to a head and if anything seems to be getting bigger. I have no no idea what it may be or how to treat it. Any ideas?

  17. I'm seriously losing it and I felt the best thing for me to do was create an account here and hope that someone can help me in some type of way that knows what I'm going through. I'm 25 I'm a male and I have been dealing with acne since I was about 18. I have never had severe acne just occasional small pimples here and there.

  19. Hi, I have had a cystic spot since monday, and I have been using tea tree oil (which burned my skin) sudocrem, hydrocortisone, hot compresses I think i burned my skin with the hot compresses, because now i am left with the skin peeling around the edges, and I have a huge red lump on my face I am so self concious and this has taken a huge knock on my confidence. How long will it take for this to go away? And do I just keep using sudocrem? I want it to be less red and angry looking by this
  20. I need something to remove red marks/scars. Something to apply directly on my face that tones and evens the skin colour. I usually have anywhere from 0-10 zits at one go but they leave red marks for months afterwards. Maybe something for spot treatment as well. The cream I use now barely works and costs like 50 bucks every couple of months. Any advice? I heard alot about AHA+ but am not sure. Can anyone vouch for it? I'm a 20 year old male if it makes any difference. Cheers!

  23. 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
  24. Im 18 years old and I suffer from acne like millions of others. I just want to have a clearer face but I don't know what to do. I have a well-balanced diet, and I've used things like benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, and various other "fixes", but nothing is working. Can anyone tell me what to do to get rid of this acne? I dont know what to do when a whitehead pops up, I have a giant cyst (in one of the pictures attached) and i dont know what to do (ive picked at it an tried to pop it and I know i
  25. Hey guys! So my skin's been pretty good for the past little while... after the summer which wasn't so great (I worked at a summer camp and forgot my topical treatment at home for a week!), my skin has been steadily improving. I'm really happy with my skin other than this massive thing that appeared on my forehead this past weekend! I've been eating less fruits/vegetables and drinking less water (like... a lot less) for the past 10 days or so; I went on a vacation and ate out all 3 days, then jus
