  1. So heres the story, Im now 23, skinny, white male. Ive had acne since a teen and went on docycycline for about a year which barely worked after a month and when I stopped using it my back got really bad. So I went on accutane which was great and cured all my acne, however a few months after I started to get a few small pimples on my scalp which I never used to get and now its worse and gets really itchy. So anyway, I started using T/Gel for my scalp which kind of worked but pretty sure the coal
  2. I rarely get acne, but a couple of months ago I got a huge pimple that hurt for days and it never formed a point. Eventually it went away (left a scar) and now another one popped up next to it! I've never had anything like it before, and I'm scared that its a boil or staph. Both can be fatal untreated so I'm freaking out! please help! ps just worked out so I'm super oily sorry!
  3. M, 22 Background of acne as a teenager. Went on doxycycline aged 19. Stayed on it for about 2 years, then it stopped working and my acne was getting a bit worse. Went on accutane, and the accutane was working really well. I got clear of acne by 5-6 months on it, but my derm wanted me to continue for another 2-3 to ensure reducing relapse. When I had about 2 months of accutane left, my face very suddenly erupted in awful pustules/red sores and papules. It came on very quickly (ie. my fa
  4. Hi, I am new user here, and hopefully somebody who can help me out. because am just tired of this shit. I just had a laser removal and suddenly have those small pustules in my beard line. I have done a research, and I believe which am not sure it's foliculities infection caused by staphylococcus. I just got Hibiclens + clindacin t solution t + fucidin ointment in order to eliminate staph in my body. I apply those but still its remaing resistance specially under my nose one comes from t
  5. If you develop pimples inside of your nose or primarily have acne around your mouth and cheeks, the acne-causing bacteria may be living in your nostrils. If you get ear pimples or primarily have back and jawline acne, your acne-causing bacteria may reside in your ears. Triple Antibiotic Ointment http://www.drugs.com/pro/triple-antibiotic-ointment.html is a safe and effective topical ointment for the treatment of nasal microbes implicated in disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2337752
  6. Does this look like staph to you or gram negitive? This has been happening since getting of Bactrim for a month. I was being treated for a staph infection but it was never nearly this bad. Im starting accutane in a month but im worried it may not fix this. I got a culture done when it wasnt nearly this bad and things came back fine. Ive been in and out of the derms office so I feel like they might brush it off if i go back so soon. Please someone help...pictures included
  7. Topical application of Neosporin, also known as Triple Antibiotic Ointment (TAO), http://www.drugs.com/pro/triple-antibiotic-ointment.html has been shown to effectively treat a number of common skin infections. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1824665/pdf/canmedaj00742-0047.pdf I have put TAO on forming cystic acne and it reduces the severity of the bump and accelerates healing. Please read the publication for more information.
  8. If you primarily suffer from break outs around your nose, cheek, and chin, your acne-causing bacteria may be living in your nostrils. 30% of the population are thought to be persistent Staphylococcus aureus nasal carriers. http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/45/4/475.full If your break outs predominate around your ear, neck, jawline and temples/forehead ​ the acne-causing bacteria may reside in your ears. S. aureus http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12542200 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa h
  9. Hi all, So for the past year or so I've been getting this stubborn pustular acne that doesn't respond to Benzoyl Peroxide very well. Ever since I started getting it, I've been applying Dan's BP generously at night, but so far I have never really succeeded at being 100% clear. The acne is extremely painful / tender, and rapidly develops into a pus-filled head. The head either dries up, or bursts (oftentimes I've been squeezing these pimples myself, because it's unprofessional to walk around wi
  10. I have removed Staphylococcus aureus from my nose using Triple Antibiotic Ointment and that has eliminated my nose sores and cured me of what I thought was acne but really was folliculitis. I am a microbiology graduate student and the lab I teach has a Mannitol Salt Agar experiment where we differentiate S. aureus from Staphylococcus epidermidis. S. aureus can ferment the mannitol sugar and that causes a yellowing of the plate. I have known for years that I am a heavy nasal S. aureus carr
  11. About 1-2 weeks ago I started breaking out again. At first, I thought it was just normal acne (I have had acne for the last couple of years of my life but was clearing up beautifully for the last half a year or so- I'm guessing due to the near end of puberty and also dermatologist-prescribed topical creams) but with a couple of days in, I realized I wasn't getting the normal larger red zits but tiny little bumps in certain areas making my skin look very red. It's in a couple of areas around my c

    Hemp Oil Help?

    Has anybody had any experience with hemp oil or using it as a carrier oil. I've recently got a staph infection from using epiduo and erythromycin and I'm looking to change to something along these lines long term. I've heard hemp is very good for oily skin and helps stop breakouts by thining sebum (plus all the other good stuff in it) and the tea tree oil kills acne AND staph bacteria whilst reducing inflammation. Read in quite a few places hemp oil is a good carrier oil as well like grape seed

    From the album: Serious infections

  14. Hi there, i have posted here again trying to find the cause of my acne.I came across an interesting topic about staph infection and someone could say that my acne resembles a light case of Staph Infection, so i would like to ask anyone to see what they think of it! Some information and photos about me could be found at those posts.I have had acne for well over a year now and it mostly looks the same. (newest pictures) Also one photo of my back can be found attached to this post.I also have
