  1. This is my final phase when I can not go any further. I decided to write how the fucking scars destroyed my whole life and I don't know how to fix it. I have a perfect boyfriend, he really loves me and I told him about my thoughts - he is my last shining star in this world but I can't bother him every day with this stuff. I do not know how to sum it up in the beginning, I've had my health under puberty. Diets, obesity, anorexia - all these impact me. Until then, I had the smoothest most delica
  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. I’m new here and honestly pretty messed up to begin with. So I don’t know how to start. Start anything for that matter. Anyway, hi, I’m depressed and suicidal since 16 years old and I’m 21 now. Seems short but hey, life has felt extremely and unnecessarily long over here for some reason. And it sucks. As if I can’t be any more pathetic, here I am trying not to cry again. I’ll just stash that away since there’s no real reason to cry over acne, right? I guess not. Besides my eyes sting like h
  4. My son was on accutane (generic) for 6 months. The mo th after he was finished he committed suicide. He was a fun, hilarious, and loving person. Very close to his friends and family... we never saw it coming. I don't understand. I'm left with no answers and just would like to know if anyone here can relate.
  5. 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
  6. I have done some research and everyone is saying all these terrible things will happen if you OD acutane. I have about 80 pills of 30mg and I took 15 at once (450mg) and nothing has happened. No stomach pain no headaches or anything. Tomorrow im going to take the 60ish that are left and hope for better results. My question is do you think 1800mg of acutane is enough to kill me if 450mg had no effect? P.S. im not looking for the suicide hotline or anything I have legitimate reasons for suicide.

  8. I have suffered from mild-moderate acne for about 3 years now, but it has always been focused on my forehead. Recently last year, I managed to clear my skin and I was acne free for about 2-3 months but then suddenly, at the start of this year, I broke out on my cheeks (which I have never had before!). This really damaged my self esteem and caused me to see a dermatologist. Since then, I have been prescribed yasmin birth control (been on it only fora week though)to help clear up my skin along wit
  9. Hello Everyone. Won't keep this too formal, but like many of you I tried Accutane, had a few minor side-effects while i was on it, like dry lips and skin, blood noses, dry eyes, soreness after sport, etc. Then when I discontinued Accutane, some of these effects left, but were replaced with other far more insidious side effects. In no particular order these included: -Erectile Dysfunction -Depression -Fatigue -Joint Pain and more injuries -Low Testosterone
  10. I don't know what to do. I've tried Accutane with no luck and I can't go on it again because of the brain pressure problems I had whilst on the drug. My acne on my right cheek is interconnected and it has, at the moment, three cysts that join together. I just started an antibiotic and it feels so bruised I can't sleep on my face or dab makeup on it. It hurts so much and is so large I want to cry and hide in the dark. I'm almost twenty, I shouldn't have to waste my youth because of this. I want t
  11. So my last login was from November of 2013.... Now I'm back. This time to offer some help, advice, and insight. I'm going to spend a decent amount of time writing this - so I hope someone reads this and finds it helpful. So November of 2013, a junior in college. University of Tampa - where everyone is near perfect. Suffering from acne. Taking a cab to my dermatologist appointment. Same visit per usual - quick glance at my skin and an increase in dosage of my doxycycline. I leave extremely
  12. 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
  13. Hello. I'm a 19 year old female taking TriNessa for acne and have been for the past 2 months and week. My skin is the worst it has ever been, my jaw line and cheeks are covered in inflamed, red and purple pimples and weird patches of inflammation that burn and are sore and nauseatingly painful to the touch, even when I shower. Ever since I started Trinessa, my moderate acne has become severe. Should I stop using Trinessa and try switching to the brand name Ortho Tri Cyclen, or should I wait out
  14. I feel the need to say this to all of you in this organization. For the most part, most of you complain about having facial acne, whether it's mild moderate or severe. Did you know there are some of us.. Who have acne on our chest? And On our stomach? And on our backs? Even on our legs and shoulders and arms? Not just on our faces. Do you know how it feels, to not be able to dress how you would like in a judgement society filled with humans who judge everyone and everything? Do you kn
  15. Hey guys... I created a Facebook group page for people who suffer from BDD. Privacy concerns: this group is "secret" so nobody can find it unless they're invited. NONE of your friends will know you're a part of it. This group will be a place where we can talk about and receive support for our extreme feelings about our "flaws". Having BDD means more than stressing about an aspect of appearance. Some common symptoms: OCD like behaviors/thoughts, CONSTANTLY checking mirrors, isolation, ex
  16. Acne has ruined my life. It all started when i was in 8th grade. I brokeout like any normal kid, so i wasn't too worried. Then came highschool and sophomore year. Acne was covering my entire face, I'm talking about big huge red painful zits. I could barely leave touch my face or play sprots without popping something. And all the kids teasing and talking shit about it didn't help me either. So I decided to see a dermatologist. All he did was give me useless creams and pills that would make everyt
  17. I just don't even know what I'm doing anymore. Idk why I am even posting this. But I guess I can start this off by saying I hate myself. I have had severe acne since I was 13. Its to the point now that my face is nothing but scars, cysts and bright red and purple infected pieces of crap. To properly describe what my scars look like. Imagine lava veins on the surface....Thats what it looks like. Im a highschool dropout and don't have a vehicle to drive up to the GED courses. I've been literally
  18. Hi, I was prescribed Accutane by my dermatologist in January 2014, and took my first 20mg dosage on the 28th of January 2014. My doctor advised that I should limit my alcohol intake with it, and to not take my dosage on days I would drink. On February the 22nd 2014 I went to a party and drank a large amount of alcohol for myself (9 - 10 standard drinks for a 90kg Athletic Male). The following day I felt my usual hangover, and assumed it would subside within 24 hours. However the next day t

  20. Ugh, I've felt so down on myself lately. I feel so ugly all the time, and it's not just my skin that's bothering me. I hate pretty much everything about the way I look. My nose is HUGE and bulbous and it's crooked, and I really want to get a nose job, but it's so expensive, and I'm worried about what effect it would have on my skin. Even my mom and one of my friends thinks I need a nose job, and my sister's boyfriend likes to make subtle comments about how huge and ugly my nose is. Plus, my face
  21. Hello, I just need a place/people to talk to about what happened to me because the guilt I feel is overwhelming and the emotional scarring and physiological scarring of my acne has driven me to seek a way out. My psychiatrist recommended that I have an abortion when I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant because of the medications I was on. I was devastated and still am. I have been trying to combat these feelings of guilt that I have. But to make matters worse, my acne has gotten MUCH worse. It has
  22. Hello all, This has probably been said before but I think it's something worth bringing up. The regimen for 99% of people works, however many side affects or inperfect it is, it gets rid of acne, it's the only thing keeping my skin clear, and I would be lost without it. A lot of people rely on the regimen to keep them going, I see a lot of posts about people contemplating suicide because of their acne, and i see posts about people who have come out of depression because their acne has bee
  23. Hello and thanks for taking time to read my post! (This will probably be lengthy, apologies in advance.) A bit about myself/a prologue: (The short) My name's Jared, I'm 21 years old from Upstate New York and I've suffered from mild to severe acne for nearly a decade now. I currently go to school full time studying Environmental Science, work at a local vet clinic, and genuinely enjoy the outdoors. (The Long) Before I ever had a zit I was heavy, very heavy indeed. In about 4
  24. I started a website on acne. After 100's of methods to cure acne in my 8 long damn battle, I finally won . I found that the balanced way is the best approach. I am cured of acne now after 8 long damn years of nightmare. I have done lots of research, went through heaps of bullshit methods out there. Went through suicide attempts, because life was pure hell. I was crying, hitting my head on wall out of anger and frustration. Where you were I was there and even worse. What kept me going wa
  25. Hi, I am so totally overwhelmed. After googling cystic acne, and stumbling upon this site, and coming to the realization that what I have is cystic acne which is so unbelievably painful, I feel like I'm losing it. And i don't even know if i care. i'm 47, female, and menopausal. My husband died 13 years ago when our daughter was 2 1/2 and so I've been raising her alone. My dad was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease on the heals of my husband's brain tumor diagnosis and so I lived thr
