  1. Hi there guys I was just wondering if someone could tell me what severity of acne I have. I have had acne since I was about 12-13 much worse than it is now. Currently I use epiduo every night with aveeno moisturiser afterwards and I use a black pore mask once a week. However despite this I continue to suffer with large red pimples under the skin that are painful and take a long time to go away. Does anyone have any tips to help get rid of these because they make me extremely unhappy and make me
  2. I’ve been dealing with severe cystic acne for 5 years. I’ve seen a number of dermatologists and holistic doctors. The only thing that helped was birth control but it caused me to gain a substantial amount of weight and had other psychological side effects that were bad enough for me to stop taking it. Doxycycline helped keep it more manageable and I stayed on it for a year. I weened myself off of it a few months ago in hopes of keeping my liver healthy and the acne came back with a vengeance. It
  3. Hello. I've been on 20mg Accutane 10 days now and felt you'd all like to know about it. I'm 23, male, and had acne since I learnt to walk. Actually that's a slight exaggeration. Definately since I had armpit hair. My acne has been tiptoeing between moderate and severe for almost ten years now. I tried everything, including pretending it didn't matter, but recently I HAVE HAD ENOUGH ALREADY. So accutane. Great list of side-effects. Makes waking up exciting. Refused to go on it for ages due
  4. Few weeks ago, I feel relaxed and stuff because it's vacation time and I noticed my skin getting better. But ever since this week, I have projects at hand everyday and I have been so stressed. And I started breaking out bad which freaks me out big time and which, of course made matters worst. I got so depressed I cried and thought of suicide again... so are there any stress busters?? I know there's no sure way, but can you guys tell me what works for you all? That I may even try them to find
  5. Hello im 18 years old and the doctor prescribed me to accuatane but i havnt start it yet cause i have to go get a blood test tommorow then i can start it. He put me on 40mg to start it off but my mom isnt to sure of it cause they have to keep a good eye on me and shes a little scared of the suicide effect and was reading on the internet that over 100 people have killed there selfs from accutane. Im a little freaked out my self but I want my acne gone I keep saying i wont kill my self cause I
  6. BECAUSE IT MAKES U FLARE UP AND BREAK OUT LIKE NEVER B 4, of course ur gonna be depressed and thinking of killing yourself, i mean you'll joke about it but ur not stupid enough to actually commite suicide. Stupidest thing i've ever heard lol! =D>
  7. Taken from ]http://acneforum.cjb.net ACCUTANE - DO NOT TAKE THIS $hit.: Here is why: In 1998, the Food and Drug Administration advised doctors who prescribe Accutane to watch their patients for signs of depression. Afterward, the Hoffman-LaRoche, the maker of Accutane, notified doctors that the drug ``may cause depression, psychosis, and, rarely, suicidal ideation, suicide attempts and suicide.'' (from - http://www.accutane-side-effects.com /) Accutane shuts down your organ that pro
  8. Not many ppl come back here when they become all clear n stuff, but ive been off Accutane for like a year and I was asked to make a speech at...well it doesn't really matter and thought Id post it for anyone thinkin bout the drug. Soz if this offends anyone but its my opinion and i think its rite...u dont have to...

  10. my life is a sad story. but times have not always been so rough, in fact when i was younger my life was almost perfect. almost is the key word here, because growing up in my family meant keeping your mouth shut. my families unofficial policy was dont ask, dont tell. and the problem with this was i needed attention, and i needed it horribly. so i spent every waking moment with my friends, growing closer, bonding, and also satisfying my need for attention. then ,around the time i was 9, the gm pla
  11. When I see the movie American Psycho, it makes me think i'm crazy. I'm alot like the guy on there, plus I have acne. Weird Things In My Life(see if u can relate): -I haven't taken a picture with visible acne and shown it to anyone(even avoided looking myself) since 7th grade(school pics not included, they do made touchups and tanning). - I try to keep my head up because looking up to me makes me look better always cuz my hair is hard to keep looking good from above since it is kinda my s
  12. Accutane is not bad in and of itself, check your premises..... I only say this because of the thousands of people accutane has helped. Unfortunatly, it is a drug, and drugs never have the same affect on different people. Side effects differ, reactions differ, and effectiveness differ. I know over 10 people including family members who have been on accutane, 8 of them had amazing results, and two had to be taking off because of cholesterol and liver issues. I have to honestly say that eve
  13. Acne scars are awful. Had they been easy to live with then we wouldn't need this web forum. I read again and again on this forum about people willing to cut off fingers, pay incredible amounts of money, or even commit suicide all on account of acne scars. We must NEVER lose hope. We may have a physical deformity, but that does not dictate who we are. We are just important and special as anyone without acne scars. If anything, we should be stronger than them because of the hardships we have
  14. My acne brought me to the point of near suicide. I was at my wits end. I felt hideous. Gross. Disgusting. Unwanted. Hopeless. Miserable. It caused me to have panic attacks and anxiety now, finally I have gotten all of this under control and am living my life like a normal human being for the most part. Is my skin perfect? No. Is my emotional state 100% stable all the time? Definitely not. But I am coping and I want to help others know that they're not alone so I've started to d
  15. I am a 15 year old girl right now as of 2011, and i am starting on Accutane(: first month of waiting just to get the medication was pretty brutal. I remember saying to myself in the dermatologists office that i "never want to go back to the way i feel now." I held back tears as the dermatologist examined my face.. My acne has brought me social suicide pretty much and I find myself losing interest in everything because of my acne. It's all I really think about. I'm usually called the "pretty gir
  16. Hi all I am new to acne.org. I just wanted to start out by thanking all of you for sharing you struggles and accomplishments with acne. I am 29 years old, a mother of 20 month old twin daughters, and a stay/work from home Mom. I have had acne pertty much all my life. It has really effected my quality of life, much like several of you that post on these boards. I have attempted suicide in the past and had to be placed in a mental facility for several days because I was so severely depressed that
  17. People with severe acne can be up to twice as likely to try to kill themselves as their peers, say medics. By Stephen Adams, Medical Correspondent 6:30AM GMT 12 Nov 2010 The risk peaks in the months after coming off a drug called isotretinoin, found the Swedish study of almost 6,000 people with the condition. It has long been known that people with acne are more prone to depression. While it is most often associated with teenagers going through puberty, many adults get it too. Stress is
  18. it's my acne. my acne, my damn acne. years and years, medication after medications, trial and error, failing, failing, failing, scars, horrible scars, blackheads, pimples, i have it all. i can't stand another day at school with these pimples, i cannot face anyone. im only 14, but i want to end it all. i dont care about the future, i dont care about happiness, i dont care about what other people fucking think. i want to end it all, i want to be unconcious forever, i dont want to feel love, i dont
  19. I'm just going to tell my story. PLEASE READ IT ALL. I'm a 18 year old male who is completely miserable with my life because of acne. I started getting acne when I was 16 years old (right after my Sophomore year of high school in the summer). It started on my back and chest and slowly but surely had moved to my face during the course of the summer. My mom (or me) had no idea what was on my back and chest (as we didn't even know what acne was as I had no prior history of acne before I turned 16;
  20. Acne...Acne...Acne, damn you to hell. Over the year's of struggling with acne it is finally starting to cool down some, but now it has left me with horrible scarring all over my body. I hate it, i fell like a monster with these scars. You know what i ask myself everyday? "what did i do too deserve this", and im sure alot of you have ask youself that same thing. Well let me so you some pic's of me, so you'll see what i mean when i say "MONSTER", Well, see what i mean now? This is has cau
  21. the whole suicide thing scares me and i want to know more about it. any info you guys have would help. a few years ago i was on anti-depressants. my derm knows this. but we have been through it that i am off of them now and am no longer in depression. except, i think i am depressed. all the time i think about how i hate my life and how nothing is going right for me and i feel down a lot. but i feel like this is not important because i am not thinking about suicide at all. and i think how co
  22. I need to vent... I am an intelligent and good looking 20 year old male. I took Accutane for 5 months and stopped because I began developing erectile dysfunction. I hoped that it would go away with time and maybe the drug just needed some time to get out of my system, but now it has been over a year. During this time, I have been forced to avoid sexual relationships almost completely. When the one girl I did try to get intimate with (x-gf from high school) found out, she broke up with me an
  23. I've dealt with bullshit skin and Rosacea for about 1.5 years now.....thought of suicide it got SO bad.....I had an angel save my life by introducing me to two products that are full of ZINC (ZINC IS GOOD FOR ROSACEA AS IT'S AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY).....all I can say is try Elta MD moisturizers and a make up line known as Jane Iredale.....it's given me my confidence back! Honestly, try it!
  24. The way I am feeling right now (like shit, extremely depressed) will be expressed in my thoughts below: Now I know 12 days ago I posted a similar topic to the one I am about to post, but I need to get this off my chest still (I need to VENT). I have, as of today, been on Accutane (40 mg) for 75 days (2 and a half months). I am still, STILL, 75 days into Accutane, getting new pimples pretty much every damn day. This is different from 12 days ago where I THOUGHT the "break-outs" were coming to
  25. Hello, please read and listen to my story... I was prescribed Stievamycin (Tretinoin and Erythromycin) almost 4 months ago, initially 0.01 percent and then up to 0.025 percent after a month. I had mild-moderate acne concerns, with no redness. I had a terrible initial breakout, as usual; however, now my face is completely red, and my usual skin tone is very very fair...so my face looks like a giant tomato...I have never in my life had post-hyperpigmentation, and now my face is COVERED in r
