  3. Hey I have a question. I have been using tretinoin cream for the past 7 days and I have been using it wrong. I squeezed about multiple pea size amounts for each part of my face mistaking the term ONE PEA SIZE AMOUNT for my whole face. I have read the directions and now I understand. If I use less tomorrow and according to directions usin ONE PEA SIZE AMOUNT for my whole face will the cream still work? or my skin has built a tolerace from the large amount used? (P.S. I didn't notice much irritati

    Teenage acne

    Teenage Acne To give you an overview of what my acne has been like, it began when I was around 13 but didn't really begin to bother me until late last year (at the age of 14). It was just mild acne on my forehead but really brought my confidence to an all time low I went to see a dermatologist who prescribed me differin gel however this only made my skin worsen!! I began breaking out more, not just on my forehead, but also my cheeks and chin. I continued to use the tube until it was finished
  5. Hello acne.org family. My name is Franco,i'm 17 years old (2 months for 18) and i am from Argentina. During my early teen stages i used to have a really mild acne. Mostly comedonal. Maybe a pimple there and there. No cysts at all. Almost three months ago,after my high school graduation,during summer,i started to get more serious acne. Closed comedones were in my face for years,but they started to transform into zits with pus. Anyways it still was really light and otc products were

    Day Four

    Day 4, Let me just start out by saying EWWWWWW my face was hella F**king gross today...seriously just beyond. Maybe I put on too much moisturizer or something because my face was the kind of pizza oily that would look gross even on a pizza; I literally felt like the oil on my skin added legit weight to my face. The make up Ive been using usually sucks up any and all oil I would naturally accumulate on my skin during the day...but NOT TODAYYYYYY. I was sitting at my desk (at work=nasty flor
  7. Poll-When did your teen acne go away?
  8. Im currently 17 years old and I am suffering of mild-moderate acne. Lately ive been taking a holistic view on acne, and ive got some decent results but lately ive been stuck and my acne seems to not move. I have been thinking about what i could do, and the question hit me that im still in puberty and if its even possible for me to clear my acne while in puberty? The succes stories that Ive been reading has mostly been adults as well, but i donw know what do you think?
  9. im 16 yrs old and recently just finished my 9 month course of oratane (the australian accutane or whatever) 40mg/day! In australia we dont get higher dosages in a shorter period of time, or at least thats what my derm put me on cause of my weight, etc. im so grateful for this drug, i am finally able to look people in the eye, go to school, socialise and look at myself in the mirror. accutane is actually god sent & worked miracles on my mild acne. When i started accutane i never had terrible

    From the album: Teenage Acne

    So basically I had experienced 5 years of continuous breakouts on the surface and even pimples under the skin I couldn't get rid off for months. I jumped on the regime in October 2013 and followed the instructions as precisely as I could and as consistently as I could. My face shredded in the first two months and it looked worse but because I was just so out of hope, acne.org was the only thing I decided to stick to. I saw results by the third and fourth month. The lumps and bumps were reduced o
  11. Hey so my skin was perfectly fine for a few years, I used cetaphil and Benzoyl Peroxide gel. Suddenly this year after a bad sun burn, as if it just stopped working, my skin developed some moderate acne. I have deep cysts and many little whiteheads that pop up where I've never gotten acne before. My doctor put me on Alesse, that made my periods worse, now I'm on Triquilar. They also gave me Tretinoin but it seems to have no effect/made it worse. Should I go see a derma? Anybody have any ideas why

    Day 4

    Hello People of the World!, I’m back, sorry about the delay. So today is day 4 for the Epiduo, and I am starting to notice some changes. My T-Zone started breaking out and my right cheek is breaking out with large zits. Also where my glasses rub on the bridge of my nose, I had one or two zits that were still under the skin, now I have three HUGE!!! Ones (I think they may be cysts, oh how I hate them!) my skin is also a little flaky, as if the dead skin the Epiduo is ridding of is piling on t
  13. Just created an account on this website for the sole purpose on knowing what is going on with my forehead. I am 17 years old and i got my acne a year or two ago. What i want to know is what are these tiny bump on my forehead, what do you call them, and just want to know overall on whats going on with my forehead, are these scars, whiteheads, blackheads. I think because of my hair covering my forehead, i got blackheads (or that what i think they are) and so i try to squeeze them from time to

    10 years of Acne.

    For the last 10 years, I've looked on acne.org for advice. Making this account was long overdue. And for the most part, things I've found on here have worked! But nothing completely got rid of my acne. Let me give you a background of my history.... I got my first whitehead when I was 11 years old, thought nothing of it. Scratched it away. From ages 11-12, I had a front fringe. I began to experience hundreds of tiny whiteheads all over my forehead, I presume due to the sweat and dirt
  15. Im a teenager suffering from I guess teenage acne lol. Many antibiotics held my acne at bay but now my derm wants to prescribe me Accutane. Quite frankly I don't want to take that risk. What is the strongest anti-biotic for teenage acne? In terms of effectiveness im not looking for a cure I just need an antibiotic to hold it off till im around 20
