    Day 7 on Spiro 25mg

    So I'm on Day 7 now and I feel worse than I did yesterday. I woke up with new cysts popping up all alongside by lower jaw and under my chin and forehead. It's absolutely horrible, I don't even want to look in the mirror anymore. I'm also currently in the middle of my exams for university so I think I might be breaking out due to stress as well. I've also been using Epiduo on active acne in the evening to get them to shrink down and all but not much of a difference because when one goes another c
  3. Ok here’s my deal, 31 year old male. Did not have acne problems until 24 years old. its been 7 years and I am now 31 and still dealing with acne. I have been to 4 different dermatologist and tried countless gels, creams face washes, shampoo's etc. I have gone to an allergist (I am allergic to dust, mites, pollen, cats & dogs) and an endocrinologist (levels looked fine except a little low on vitamin d). I am really not sure what to do anymore to get rid of my adult acne. Dermatologist say
  4. My doctor put me on birth control (ortho-tricyclen) after my first period in middle school. Fast forward - clear skin for almost my entire life until I turn 19 and decide I don't need to be on synthetic hormones. Three months later, cystic acne all over my cheeks, jawline, and neck. Sound familiar? Straight away I go to the derm. Get put back on ortho-tri. I stayed on the ortho tri only to experience mediocre results, then moved onto yaz for three months which caused a literal facial explosion
  5. I’m currently 23. Just started accutane a week ahí. I’ve never had a boyfriend and I think it’s because of my acne. I’ve dated but I can’t help thinking that they’re looking at my face because of it, I topped wearing make up cause I don’t want to make it worse but it makes me feel so insecure. The funny part is I wouldn’t mind if I’m dating someone with acne or whatever but I feel they do. Gay guys are usually really shallow. I’m just scared to date anymore and I know I don’t need no man lol bu

    Confusion

    So here we are. Almost two years I've been apart of the Acne.org communtiy and I still haven't found my turning point. There have definitely been some ups, and obviously some downs. I really thought I was starting to understand my skin though. I thought I knew what worked on it, and what didn't. I thought I was following the rules. But now I just don't know anymore. My skin has gone from being oily and getting random, unpredicable breakouts all over my face. To becoming more dry and senitive, bu

    Happiness

    When I first started this blog. I had absolutely no idea how much it would change my life. The support and help I recieved from you guys was amazing and because of all the positivity, I had motivation to become acne free! I dont remember the last time I looked in the mirror and hated what i saw! This isn't much of a blog, i would think of it as more of a "thank you/this is the end of my journey" blog. Looking back at my previous posts and seeing how much I've changed since then gives me such a s

  11. I'm a 16 year old girl who's been suffering from acne ever since I was 11. I can even remember the beginning days when I used to complain about one or two pimples, and make such a fuss out of it. 5 years on and my face is covered with cystic acne. Not only that, but my back and chest too. i cannot even begin to describe the emotional effects that acne has created for me. Even when I had slight pimples, I could always walk out the house without makeup on. Once I reached 14, my acne began

    Skin Wars

    Have you ever looked in the mirror and cried because your appearance isn't the way you thought it'd be as a child years ago? Well, welcome to my life. I never imagined being plagued with acne, especially not as a child in elementary school. At the age of 9, I lost someone so beloved and close to me. That one loss spurred a whole new chain of events. Anxiety hit me hard and it was pretty hard to be happy when you didn't understand what was going on with your life. I felt like my world had complet
  13. (Bare in mind the photo above ^ is with makeup and good lighting. To see my skin without makeup go on my previous blog post) So how do I say this without sounding conceded, I am an average person I would say physically. I am not a "unattractive person" per say. However, facing moderate to mild acne for a couple years now has really affected my personal views on myself. From someone who was very comfortable in herself to some extent I went from trying being happy with myself to avoiding eye
