    I Need Help

    Hey guys, it's been awhile since I posted. Ive been on Accutane but had to take a break when I got sick with mono. I've been back on it now for awhile but it's not healing up certain spots. (I'll explain) it started with 2 spots below my neck that completely swelled up and began draining pus. One side has healed, the other has not. These spots are now on my back as well. They are so painful, everytime I move it's like a hot knife digging into me. They break open in the shower and leave big deep
  2. I have mild acne on my forehead and chin but have recently got 2-3 tiny whiteheads above my lip and one underneath. My lips are extremely sore. I've had this in the past but can't remember how they went or if they went on their own. They are visible but not majorly but they are so painful. They are NOT cold sores so please don't suggest this, what can I do?
  3. So about 1.5 weeks ago I popped a white head that was on my cheek and since then after that it has been red, painful and hard. I had not been doing anything besides washing it with my Clarisonic but yesterday I decided to put hot cotton ball to the area in hopes of decresing the swelling and getting out what was inside of this huge red swollen bump while I believe is infected. After 1 day of putting the hot cotton ball on the site my swollen bump has increased in size and it is now more red ev
  4. Hi fellow acne sufferers, I started the regimen almost 4 weeks ago and I am experiencing extreme extreme, redness, tight skin, swelling, cracking and skin constantly peeling off from dryness. I follow the regimen very strictly (cleanse gently, bp, then 2 full pumps of moisturizer). The first week, I started with a small about of bp, then slowy ramped up to 1 full pump day and night. I have probably been doing the one full pump day and night for 4 days and my skin is freaking out. My breakouts
  5. Hey im on my fifth month of accutane right now and i have realised my face seems a ,lot different from when i first started taking it, and im not just talking about the acne. my eye ridge/forehead seems to have bulged out and my cheeks seem to be a bit fatter, i have not gained weight either... does this happen? and will my face go back to normal after i stop using? i still look like a normal human being but i preferred the shape of my face previously. ive just turned 20 btw and wow i cant b
  6. Hi everyone, I’ve been using the regimen for about a year now and last week my eyes became very itchy, red, and swollen. They are still red and swollen but no longer itchy. The skin is sort of flaking away. Has this happened to anyone else? I never put BP near my eyes. I’ve used Benadryl with no change. Is there anything I could put on my eyes to help the redness/flaking? They feel very dry. (Clinics have been full capacity due to flu/cold season...)
  7. i don't know what to do, i really never had anything like that on my skin and i truly want to die. please help me. yesterday i popped a medium-sized pimple on my forehead. i know you're not supposed to do this but the pimple had a clear whitehead and it looked as if it was ready to pop. maybe it was a little bit hard when i touched it but i didn't pay attention to it because it didn't hurt at all like those deep blind pimples do. after i popped it (twice) all the awful stuff came out so i disi

    DEEP CRATER FROM CYST

    I've had a possible cyst for about a week now. At first it was a large red bump. Once I tried popping it, a little liquid came out, that's it. Eventually it got worse to the point where I went to the doctor. At that point it was almost the crater it is today. The skin has gone completely away, it is red and swollen, and the crater is getting deeper. There was a big ball of white liquid I assumed was skin growing back and I lifted that with tweezers to see underneath and it came right off. So now
  9. I used the Regimen for the second time this morning before school. My face was itchy the whole day and I kept scratching around my eye and jaw area. I just woke up from a nap and now both my eyes are mildly swollen and a little bit of redness around my face. I'm thinking it might be the BP. Anyone else had this problem? What should I do?
  10. If anyone could give me a little insight that would be great!! I have been on Isotretinoin (Claravis) for a about a month and a week now. My derm started me on 40mg once daily for the first month, and recently increased the dose to 60mg daily (30mg X2). By the first two weeks I came down with a horrible cold flu like symptoms with really tender/ swollen lymph nodes behind my ears and neck. About a week later it subsided. A few days after starting the 60mg, my cold came back, and this time s
  11. i have this really bright red pimple at the tip of my nose. it has no head and is sort of painful. i tried popping it but nothing came out. unfortunately, going to a dermatologist isn't an option:( what can i do to get rid of this horrible pimple? it's so annoying and sooooo hard to cover up:( from what i've read, i think i have a blind pimple. i've seen some websites saying tea tree oil, benzoyl peroxide, or hot water will help. what will get this out the quickest? thank you.
  12. On to week 5 and my skin is still red irritated and it's also swollen. I thought it was normal but everyday my skin looks more and more swollen. Not sure if this is normal anymore it looks super round and red. I don't even look like myself anymore.
  13. So I recently started working at a Dermatology clinic. I've struggled with intermittent moderate acne for years, I haven't had much of an issue lately but started to break out a little this past week on the right side of my face. I had a very deep cyst develop on my right upper cheek and I did a big no no.. I've watched the doctor at work slice open and drain cysts on patients countless times at this point and I thought I'd be able to drain my own at home. So last night, with a crappy give dolla
  14. Last night i found a pimple on my cheek, near my nose. It looked like every other pimple i've ever had, and like an idiot i decided to try and pop it. I heard it pop and the white on the tip disappeared, but nothing came out, i think it popped under my skin. Went to bed and it was fine, but when i woke up the whole area above and on it was pretty swollen, right next to my cheek and just under my eye. It's slightly red, slightly painful and when pressed some parts are firm, but only firm around t
  15. Hello, to all the wonderful people out there. I am desperately seeking for help. I'm completely overwhelmed with emotions after looking at all the pictures I will be adding to this post. I basically have some sort of acne/rash on my face that will not go away no matter what. I have tried retinoids, hydrocortisone creams, dermatologists, I've basically tried everything. I've spent tons of money on products, yet nothing works. I do not even know what type of acne it is. Please help me. I've outlin
  16. 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

    Help! It Just Keeps Spreading

    I also posted this in a post I started In the rosacea section, but thought this forum was was more appropriate. Please help! Anyone!!! Read my other posts if you would like to get a back story. So I stopped caring... Or at least tried too. I ate whatever I wanted. for four whole weeks. No change in my skin. Didn't get better or worse. Still had persistent clogged pores on the sides of my eyebrows. And above my lip. But nothing got worse. I saw a new dermatologist. She just wanted to prescribe

    Super severe acne

    Hey guys, this is my first real post on here even though I've been stalking this place for a good while now. I'm a 15yo male and I want to start off by saying I have some of the absolute worst acne I've ever seen. Much worse then most I see on the gallery. It's a combination of cysts/nodules, blackheads, zits and whiteheads. It's super inflamed more than 80% of the time as well.... I tend to have dry skin most of the time but it gets oily too. Currently I'm using a cleanser called derma clear in
  21. Hey my nose had been for like a year now quite red. I get some whiteheads around my nose and recently black smudges on the tip of the nose. I have no idea how to treat it or if it is rosacea or not, as i can't afford to see a dermatologist. I've tried skin cleansers then moisturizing and using clearasil pads but nothing works. I also have a mark inbetween my eyes that won't go away, it was left by a big pimple, how do i treat that? (sorry about the picture my phone camera quality isn'
  22. Ok so I’m an idiot. I had some mild acne on my cheeks like 4-5 pimples on each side and they usually come up only during finals which I don’t mind, but since a lot of my family members kept pointing it out and asking what was wrong i got sick of it & decided to use benzoyl peroxide 5% which a dermatologist told me to get a while back. Anyway i applied it and then waited till it dried then applied some moisturizer & it was fine. next day i had some redness didnt think much of it so I appl
  23. So I started using the regimen 8 months ago... I got cleared and was very happy with the progress I made. When I ran out of Dan's products, I stopped being on the regimen and wanted to find out if I will stay clear even without the regimen. After a month of not being on the regimen I broke out so bad particularly on my chin area. So I decided to look for the same otc products. I couldn't find a 2.5% bp so I purchased the 5% one. But when I started using the 5% bp, the areas where I applied it be

    Swollen skin

    Week three... skin is still very red and itchy and irritated is this normal? Also is it normal for it to almost look swollen and making my face look fatter ? It's very red when I first put the product and stays like this for maybe 2 ours but it stays looking round all day
