  1. Hi everyone i used to be a long time lurker here. I haven't visited this site in maybe 4 months because my condition has improved significantly. As i have never posted before i will fill everyone in on my past experiences. From the age of 13 my acne has become worse and worse. I had cystic acne all over my face, which at most times made it extremely painful to smile. I wouldn't look people in the eye, would hate going out to dinner with my parents and would spend all nights in my room instead of
  2. The epiduo at first made my skin very red and painful. My condition worsened at first and then I saw a huge reduction in my small "zits". My face remained slightly oily however. The antibiotics where fine and i had no side effects. The first photo is poor quality however it does show how my cysts are still coming thick and fast despite the reduction in the yellow head spots. its like trading the pus filled nasties for more serious acne that will later look 10 times worse. I finished my summer ex

    About Me!

    I have been completely fed up with my acne! I have been struggling with acne since I was in elementary school and it has just become progressively worse. I have spent thousands of dollars trying to help with this debilitating skin condition, with no luck. I have kind of let my skin go because of University and I am currently battling mental illness, which has caused me to break out. As a person with multiple debilitating mental illnesses, acne is just another trigger that can cause extreme episo
  4. I returned from holiday to have my condition get progressively worse for the next 3 weeks. I had multiple gp visits where I was essentially freaking out. My triple cyst had full on ruptured and burst and I could feel it painful and pulsating as if it had a life of its own. It was over an inch wide and 2/3 inch tall and puffy. Now this is where I lost confidence in the Nhs in treatment of non life threatening issues. The story; After my 3rd gp visit I was in despair, they had given me a
  5. Allo, I just finished day 32 on the Regimen, and things are going fairly smooth. No cysts, just smaller pimples that may be deep rooted, but don't even come to a head anymore! Pretty cray huh? But, I still get red when I put too much BP on in the daytime, especially if I sweat badly afterwards at the gym. The moisture, in turn, reactivates some of the BP, causing me to go lobster mode. As of now I'm using only about a 1/2 pump of BP during the day, and a little over a pump at night. Also, I'm
  6. I finally visited a private dermatologist. The initial consultation was £200, the blood work was £200 and the medicine was £50. I could have had the blood tests done on the NHS but I felt like I had waited long enough. At this point I would say my acne was very red and my face was very greasy. The derm prescribed me antibiotics for 2 weeks before starting accutane to prevent a bad initial flare up. was then given 40mg a day for a month and told to have another checkup then. For the first 2 w
  7. I went to Thailand for 5 weeks as a reward for my hard work at university and working as a control engineer intern at a local factory. This brought to me a few issues. Sun, alcohol, and food. I enjoyed my holiday a lot with lots of drink and other various things. This do doubt put a strain on my system. However I love scuba diving and snorkelling and I spent around 50% of my time on the beach playing football (not the american boring version! (ruffle some feathers ) or swimming or just
  8. I have made posts on this before but now I am really panicking/depressed! I have lots of red marks which are COMPLETELY smooth on my cheeks. I have had them for about 6-8 weeks and they have faded a bit about 25% but they are still SO visible. I am at uni where I need to make friends and confidence is key but I don't have any/not much because I have horrible red marks. It's annoying because usually I like going out and socialising. I am just wondering how long will these take to fade because the
  9. Hi guys - was wondering if anyone could help me out. Went to the dermatologist today for mild-moderate acne on face, back, and chest. It's been a problem for about 2-3 years - topical creams have had limited effects and antibiotics made it much worse (my skin cleared up a lot after stopping them). Other people in my family have had severe acne and been on accutane/isotretinoin for it, and she suggested that I should go ahead with a four month course of it too. I really want clear skin, and I
  10. Hi guys, In just under 2 weeks i'll be starting uni. For the past 4 years i've suffered with moderate to severe (on occasion) acne. I'm just wondering whether I will be the only person at uni with acne. Most people my age have grew out of it by now and I don't want to be that one weird kid who suffers with it. Also during the freshers week there will be alot of partying and drinking involved, my acne seems to be related to my diet and obviously the week of drinking will take it's toll. (Aft
  11. Right, I'm having a bit of a hard time right now and instead of continuing to struggle through alone, surrounded by 'clear-skinned-"it's not that bad" people', I thought I'd give this a go. It might be a little whiny and probably super self pitying but I haven't had the chance to tell anyone how I'm really feeling for a few months now so consider this truthful word-vomit. So about two years ago, I went on Accutane. Before those little miracle pills, I had red cysts all down my cheekbones an
