  1. I have several whiteheads near my eyes that i cant get rid of. what products will really help get rid of it? any suggestion would be helpful.
  2. Well folks after going weeks without any pimple i got one two days ago, it was a painful little whitehead, i popped and it went away in a day. Not bad considering it's been weeks since i got any blemish. My current regimen is the same as described in the last post. Also, it's cool that i went the entire Summer with clear skin! Also now that fall is here ive noticed my skin isn't as oily as it was during the summer, which was definitely way less than pre-accutane. nothing else, everything i
  3. Hi everyone! So this is my week 8 of using differin. Last week was a mess. Still, this week is a mess. I have 2 whiteheads on right cheek and one on left cheek. This week I also apply benzac 5% for 20 minutes and wash out before washing my face with cleaser in both morning and evening. Acne reacted to benzac quite well but it leaves dry skin. I will keep using benzac but lower the time to 15 mins. My major problem for this week is scars which appear all over my face. Both left and right cheek
  4. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  5. I used to pop my pimples a lot (yes, I know, biggest acne sin) but only if it was a big, bright whitehead. I would use a needle just like recommended. But, I was told that seeing blood and clear liquid were actually good things, because it meant all pieces of infection and bacteria were oozing out. Now I just learned from acne.org that blood and clear liquid are bad signs. So, two questions: What is the clear liquid? Why is seeing blood and this clear liquid a bad thing when popping z
  6. I've had these whiteheads (I think that's what they are) under my skin on my cheek for over a year now and I tried pushing them out long before but nothing came out. What are these and how do I get them out?? It's been irritating me now since it's been blemishing my face for so long. My mom suggested I get a needle and poke it out like that, but I don't think that's safe. It feels like a ball under my skin that like directly under my skin but covered up and moves it's my skin.
  7. does egg face mask can remove whitehead and blackhead permanently and does people in this world when became teenagers doesnt have pimple at all PLEASE REPLY
  8. So, I'm trying to figure out what's in my pores so I can maybe figure out what's going on with my skin. I have these flesh-colored bumps alllll over my face that NEVER go away and make my skin feel like sandpaper. Exfoliating doesn't work, steaming my face doesn't work, nothing seems to work! I can actually squeeze out what's in them, usually. I put my finger nail on one side of the bump and push straight down into my skin, and the force of my nail going down pushes what's IN it OUT. It
  9. so, i suppose i should start by explaining that i've been receiving injections of testostorone for about a year and a half now, and i never had really bad acne until about six months ago. after i started the testostorone, i got some pretty nasty zit breakouts, but now.. well, my pores are huge, i guess. my face is pretty much covered in whiteheads, especially around my chin, jawline, and neck. most of them are from hair follicles. i have a few large zits. i currently have a very large, painful
  10. Hi. I know this topic is strange, but urine therapy has really been working for me. Its been about three weeks since I started. The first two weeks, after rubbing fresh urine on my face, I would rinse it off with water after a few minutes. I realized that the effect wasnt as strong after rinsing it off with water, so I stopped doing that the 3rd week. Now my skin is much softer and clearer. For the past few days, I have also stopped using soap or cleansers and I stopped wearing makeup and moistu
  11. Okay so my acne like zits wise isn't a huge issue, pretty minor. But my black an white heads and my open pores are INSANE. On my nose, I have hundreds and hundreds of clogged pores (black heads) and if they're not clogged they are WIDE open. It looks absolutely disgusting. Beside my nose, under my eyes and beside my cheeks are hundreds of open pores as well. It's very disgusting as well. My forehead has tons of white heads and pores that are clogged but they don't look like black heads. Like
  12. Hey guys! For over a year now, I have had a small-medium patch of tiny little bumps (almost like white heads) and darker pigmented skin in the area on my cheek! The reason I've only started worrying now, is because it seems to have spread on to my other cheek (refer to 2nd photo) and ignore my lil bit of peach fuzz in photos! The patch is not painful, or itchy, it's just kind of there! I tried apple cider vinegar and betamethasone, toothpaste, the whole nine yards. If anyone has any suggestions
  13. Okay, so I have mild to moderate acne, mostly around my mouth and cheeks in form of whiteheads. I have very sensitive skin that gets dry and peels very easily. I was prescribed benzaclin about two years ago and used it sparingly, and it helped my skin but recently my skin has started to get not so good again. I went to the doc and was prescribed Retin-A Micro and Benzaclin again. What I usually do is wash my face with salicylic acid in the morning, moisturize with SPF, and at night use a BP/sa
  14. Hello everyone. So, I have a problem with my skin and it's that I have these little colourless bumps on my face. At first it was only on my forehead, but now it's also on my cheeks and on my chin. It looks really bad in certain light, especially in bathroom light and in the sun and also in pictures, which makes me really self conscious (I have linked a picture). I really hope some of you can help me with what it is and how I can get rid rid of it!
  15. hey guys! a test here. considering intolerance or allergy cause active acne or zits and not just small whiteheads,blackheads etc i have taken up a test. i always thought peanuts are bad for me. for once,i had a few breakouts the day i had peanuts.but i couldnt really relate the two for it might have been hormonal or for some other reason/cause. i just a handful or peanuts. i will keep a track of whether or not i have active big zits or any other symptom in next few days(or may be 1 w
  16. I've been reading a lot of topics lately about those pimples that start out as a painful, no head zit, then develop into multiple heads. I've only seen someone with up to 7 heads, but this is where I'm kinda worried. I've recently got one of these monsters, and it broke out into not 7. Not 10. But 14 white heads. (Yes, I sat and counted) Now I'm not too sure what to do, I don't think I should pop them, maybe a heat compress might help? Advice would be appreciated, thank you.
  17. Hey guys, So on Wednesday, what seemed like a matter of 4-6 hours, my chin broke out with a cluster of whiteheads. I wouldn't even really judge it as my normal acne that I used to have a few years back. There weren't any red lumps really around my whiteheads, like I said they are more of just a cluster of tiny whiteheads gathered around my chin. The day before I went to the dentists for a deep cleaning and fillings (I haven't been to the dentist in like 10 years..gross..) and they used
  18. Ok so I Usally don't get whitehead just the normal small pimple but I ran out of makeup whipes and next thing I knew I had a HUGE whitehead that just kept getting yellower and bigger and full of puss. It was right on my chin and hurt like heck so I decide to pop it ( acually had my mom, cause I tried and I like almost threw up ) anyways tons of puss came out and stuff but now it's this ugly red thing. Anyways my question is, is it suppose to be super read like did she do it wrong?
  19. Hi all. I am new to the forums, so hello! I, like many, if not all of you have suffered from acne. However, this post is about a rather slightly different topic. Any help of any sort will be much appreciated! For about a year, there has been a little what seemed like a blackhead trapped underneath my epidermis. I think it resulted from a full blown pimple that I avoided touching, but I can't quite remember since it has been so long. It has been sort of a hard bump on my cheek that for some
  20. For the past year or so I've been getting some really painful acne around the moustache area and nose, which look a lot like whiteheads. When they first start developing, you can't see them unless you're really close but you can feel a very small bump with very slight pain. After this, a whitehead starts forming, then, it starts getting bigger until a whitehead has completely formed. They usually last 2-5 days, but I get them constantly (so much that it looks like I constantly have a cold from t
  21. I've had some big cysts and pustules, deep under the skin, that have left NO scars or hyperpigmentation whatsoever. The whiteheads I get are small and they scab over, and they always leave dark little pinprick-sized spots of hyperpigmentation. I don't get it. For example, a few weeks ago I got a pustule on my left cheek. It seemed pretty deep, there was no head.. it hurt quite a bit. I left it alone for a few days and there still wasn't a head. I tried popping it, first blood came out, then
  22. Ok, this is really hard for me to do and I can't believe I will post pics because I feel so embarrassed letting everyone here see my acne. Im 16 and started getting acne when I was 12. They were rare though (like 2 every 6 months) and didn't leave marks. 3 years later I started getting acne on my chin and forehead.....and I decided to use Benzac...and then the left side of my face suddenly broke out with like a layer of large red pimples which everyone noticed! These left me with my first hype
  23. Hi all, A little bit about my "regimen": - I've been on Differin for 3.5 months - I've been on Doxy for 1 month - I now use Aveeno's Daily Moisturizing Lotion (switched from Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream a week ago, before from Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15 several weeks prior) - I cleanse with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser Before I started this regimine my acne was on and off for several years. I would be clear for a few months, then have acne for a few months. It would mostly b
  24. Hey guys! I went on holiday last month for two weeks to Miami and the Caribbean. I got a tan and my spots almost completely dried up. Some days, I wouldn't get any. Some days, maybe I'd get a couple of whiteheads. This continued once I got home for a while - the odd spot appearing, but mostly, a clear face. Now, I've been back almost a month, I've lost pretty much all of the tan and my spots are coming back. This morning I woke up with about 7-10 new "whitehead" breakouts. I haven't ch
