  1. Today is day two, and I have to say that despite being in an absolutely foul mood; I'm proud of myself. I was able to go the whole day without picking. However, due to the fact that I am in a bad mood I am going to keep things very brief. - Didn't pick today in the shower, which is one of the main places that I pick. - my GP is a useless, unprofessional twat. (I don't really want to get into details but he basically treated me like an idiot and was rude the entire time.) - Got home from wo
  2. Those of us revisiting this thread once again for answers, for a product that works, for another human to relate, we all have one thing in common. We suffer daily, or once monthly, or for the lucky ones once a year. Regardless of the frequency or intensity of your breakouts we all know how painful and embarrassing this condition can be. The thing is when you make the choice to go out the door in the morning and face the day, you have just made a very important choice whether you realize it
  3. Does 'no washing' cure acne? About a year ago, I had really good skin, it was clear, bright and smooth, but I ended up breaking out horribly for some reason. I went to the dermatologist and she pretty much said "Oh, it's okay, it will go away." and gave me doxycycline to take. Well, that was just the beginning of my acne.... I've been going through months of trying to find the perfect cleanser, toner, moisturizer, etc to cure my acne, but if you notice, if you ask the people with the clearest
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. This is my first post, so hi I'm 24 years old, and I had acne as a teenager that I controlled with antibiotics. It worked really well, and my skin was basically 100% clear. I went off them at about age 18 or 19 with no problems. I have since moved to a humid/hot climate and am breaking out a bit more than usual, especially on my cheeks. I got a few zits on my cheeks that left either red marks or scars-- the possibility of scars scared me so I went to the dermatologist. She told me to wash my
  7. Tea tree oil I use: http://www.ulta.com/tea-tree-oil?productId=xlsImpprod4190149 Moisturizer I use: http://www.nivea.ph/products/Mens-care/oil-control/oil-control-multi-effect-8-moisturizer-gel Which one should I apply first and after how long should I apply the latter?
  8. I'm thinking of switching from Tea Tree Oil to Benzoyl Peroxide just because how slow Tea Tree Oil is working for me. It's too slow for me. Will there be any problem if I switch? Also, how many times a day do I apply Benzoyl? I currently apply Tea Tree Oil twice a day.
  9. So, I recently had a very stubborn zit on my face, and I applied garlic to it. I guess I kept the garlic on for too long, because now there's still a pimple but there is also a bumpy red inflamed patch all around the pimple. Any remedies for garlic burns?
  10. so earlier today I noticed I had a lump on my butt, I put on some cream and went about my day and about an hour ago I noticed how big it was so I tried to pop it but alast failed I was wondering what I should do to deal with it. But I also don't know if it is a zit or not. So if anyone can tell me I would apprticate it because it's starting to hurt
  11. I have good hygiene, workout daily, but I still get acne? I can't stand going out in public bc I'm so self conscious about it. Any recommendations ;besides all the drugstore products that I've already tried....FML RN
  12. Anyone know a good cream to exfoliate the face? Does it even help with acne? I get pimple about an inch below my lower lip on each corner of my chin, no where else. Looking to purchase something at wal mart. Thanks
  13. Hi, So I just got over having a very large what I think was a cystic pimple it popped and came out very nicely and has reduced a lot in size over the past 24 hours. Now, right below that spot, is a similar red decently large small red bump. When I push on it with my tongue it's like all clear in my skin and seems like there's something behind it. Very similar to the one I just got rid of. But the difference with this one is that there is a tiny black dot on the top. So I'm guessing it must b
  14. I'm a bit confused as to what you are supposed to do after you sweat. People say you shouldn't wash your face more than 2 times a day which is usually morning and night but then people also say you should never leave sweat on your face for too long and that you need to wash it off immediately or it will clog your pores and cause acne. But wouldn't this result in excessive washing of the face which would lead to dry skin which would lead to more acne? I cut down on the amount of times i was
  15. Alright, so I usually just get the garden variety type zits, small and red.. sometimes have a white head, black heads are rare. But... everynow and then I'll get a huge red bump. Extremely painful, whole area around it becomes red and elevated. I think it's cystic acne but I wouldn't consider my acne severe because I only get one of these every once in a while. So, one of those lovely things popped up overnight, and I tried putting a pea sized amount of acne med right on it (my usually response
  16. I've been sick with the flu for the past five days, and I haven't worked out at all. My face cleared up- I had about 6 zits. I have none now. I'm on Benzaclin and Tretinoin, and they've really helped, but not 100%. My mom thinks that when I exercise, the sweat+medicine+makeup is making me break out. I think it's hormonal, but she might be right, to some extent. I'm not going to quit working out, but is there anything that I could do to keep from breaking out?
  17. Hey everyone, so here's my problem. I have tons of small clogged pores on my forehead that just won't go away! When squeezed, stuff does come out. I'm 13 so I'm pretty sure it's teenage acne, not some other skin issue. Occasionally, a couple of the bumps will swell into larger, red pimples. How can I get rid of these once and for all? I wouldn't mind just a few zits here and there, but I hate all these tiny bumps covering my entire forehead!
  18. Helloo everyone Just to start off, I'm 13 years old and have moderate acne. I get zits here and there, but now a days theyre staying for longer than they usually do. So I've gone through a number of treatments (Murad -.-) , and lately I think i've found something that's worked for me . So here is my daily facial cleansing...washing....whatever you want to call it routine: First I use Pond's cleansing and makeup removing towelettes (with vitamin E, chamomile and green tea) Second I wash my han
  19. Hey guys, so if you don't know milia are those super annoying little flesh colored bumps on your skin. In reality they are clogged pores. I have tons of them and they are all slowly but SURELY turning into pimples! And when I say I have tons, I mean TONS. I wanna get rid of them before they keep turning into zits. Anyone have any ways to get rid of them? I was told to get the Olay Regernerist Microdermabrasion Kit but I am weary of running out and spending over 20 bucks on it if it won't work.
  20. Hey everyone, I'm new to this Forum, really great and It looks like it helps loads of people. I've had mild acne since age 12, I'm 15 now. I've used the Acne- Aid Cream, worked wonders for me for a year and a half, results were almost overnight. After almost 2 years using that cream I couldn't find it in any drugstores so my mother bought me another cream called "Acnomel", worked OK. Got Acne Aid again after using two tubes of Acnomel, and it didn't work the same as when I started taking it s
  21. I had a clogged pore that looked like a flat, underground zit for quite some time and just recently it has came to a head. I have been applying BP in the morning and Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask at night to try and spot treat it. It isn't really pus-filled anymore, but there is a small zit underneath that I can see. I'm hoping it will dry up with my treatments, I've had one just like it before, and it ran it's course in just under a week, so i'm really hoping this timing works out. I was j
  22. Beware, this is a pretty long post, but I really need some help with this. My current problem right now is the fact that my entire face is covered in hideous red marks as a result of a pretty unfortunate situation. For about two years I was using Dan's Regimen, and it worked amazingly in getting rid of and preventing acne. It pretty much cleared up all of my acne and also prevented me from getting any red marks. So, let me try to explain my story: Over the summer, I went to visit some family
  23. I've been using tazorac cream for 9 weeks and it was hell for the first 8 weeks, and during the 8th week I started seeing SOME(verryy little) results. But, like 3 days ago, my acne stopped showing results and now some of my old red acne marks, especially around my chin, are re-appearing. Also, I got this one big zit that had 3 little white heads inside of it just above my dimple on my right cheek. Out of frustration, I popped all 3 parts until they bled, which won't do me any favors. Has anyon
  24. Hey Guys Ill try to keep this short.. Okay so I have been using Proactiv for 9 years and it has always worked for me.. I know some of you are pretty anti proactiv..but this has been the only solution for my acne. If I stop using it.. I break out like mad. So just recently in the past 2 months I started doing Microdermabrasion. I have no complaints about this it made me face feel great... however, stupid me started using a different skin care line (one she recommended)..well after about 2 weeks
  25. Hello, so.. I've been having problems with acne for a long time. I'm 22 now & I've had this "imperfection" since I was 14. I'm looking for new leads in research. So if you guys have any suggestions or ideas, I would be grateful! Currently, I'm using `Cetaphil Gentle Wash & Cetaphil Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I'm laying off the benzoyl peroxide. So my acne is going crazy, but I'm reducing the chances of damaging my skin. My face itches even when I put lotion on & stings when I sweat
