I tried piss, toothpaste, cremes, washing soaps, sports, changing my diet...

my skin is cucked for life
Me. Acne ruined my life. I want to die whenever I look into a mirror
pop down to the surgery anon, I'll soon get that sorted
>cystic acne for 10 years now
>only really thing that helped was a high androgen index birth control that made me go bald and nearly killed me
>had to go off it indefinitely, back to cystic acne
>every time a cyst goes away, breathe a sigh of relief
>another one pops up the next day
acne has ruined my life too, family. it hurts to live and it hurts to look in the mirror. ;_; everyone thinks i'm an unhygienic ogre when i'm pretty fucking clean and just AAAAA
>still wake up with new whiteheads every morning
have tried every OTC and non OTC treatment
eating well makes it worse
drinking more water does nothing
zing/magnesium whatever supplments does nothing
changing sheets/pillows doesnt do it
I saw an allergy doctor like 3 or 4 years ago, he prescribed me this cream called benzaclin, which is benza gel with clindamycin or something like that, I use it once a day before I go to bed and it's been working although acne isn't completely gone. you can get regular benza gel without the clindamycin at a local drug store I think, the benzaclin has some side effects though like irritation and dry skin
>stretch marks all over my hips and belly
Sometimes I wish I had died from that cancer - the shit they pump in to you made me balloon in to a fucking blob of pure fat.
I`m fairly skinny now but my skin is ruined forever.
I lucked out as far as acne goes but I have really dry skin. To the point where if I'm not applying moisturizer every few hours it hurts to exist. I just don't understand how there hasn't been any medical solutions to this shit. All they give you is some meme soap or cream that doesn't change anything.
This is the worst feel
I'm so fucked by acne, I tried everything, bit nothing ever helped and even if it goes away, I will still have all these scars. I also psoriasis, which is affecting almost my whole upper body and part of arms. I tried everything for that too, but nothing helped either. I need to get a special surgery for it, but I don't have the money. It already reached parts of my neck, so I have to wear a scarf all the time
Used to have this shit bad. Wanted to punch the life out of my reflection and I usually made it a goal to never look at myself in the camera or mirror because it would instantly ruin my confidence. I tried Aczone and it started going away.
Aczone and Tazorac work wonders, Tazorac is harsher on the skin but I would recommend for really oily niggas.
i have had horrific acne all my life. i've tried proactive, murad, the entire neutrogena line, been on accutane twice, pretty much everything on the market and it still came back. i tried this somewhat recently and nothing works like this does. i wish i would've found this in my teenage years.
>shaving is painful
>look like a mess
>buy a safety razor
>shave with safety razor and regular unscented soap
>use coconut oil for aftershave
>everything clears up couple months later
Obviously it's not going to work for everyone, but turns out coconut oil dries the skin the fuck out and that, in turn, dealt with my acne. Try it out, it's cheap and it's not like you've got anything to lose.
The last time I was on it was almost 4 (?) years ago, so I can't remember. the second time they upped the dose.
it didn't really work aside from making my face painfully dry. like i said, the only thing that really worked was BC. my forehead/temples/nose are pretty much clear, i only get acne around my chin/mouth/nasolabial folds which seems to most derms to mean i have a hormonal problem.
im thinking about doing Spironolactone and doing 25mg/day (i wanna buy it online from qhi and buy a pill cutter). but im scared since doctors won't prescribe it, self-medicating is kind of risky.
but ever since the BC/accutane/whatever i've had massive amounts of female pattern baldness as well, which Spironolactone seems to help with. so i'm kind of just getting desperate and i wanna try it because i don't even care anymore.
You can get this stuff OTC right? Does it work for body acne? My face is mostly cleared up from using tretinoin cream but my scalp/chest/back have been getting really bad.
Don't want to go on accutane and I have heard good things about Benozyl Peroxide
same here, thankfully I have the genes to grow a beard, trimming it is way easier on my skin than a full shave.
I still get acne on my cheek line though, and I've been breaking out more around my nose and forehead recently. I bought some generic RiteAid acne wash and cream, it dries out my skin like crazy but works pretty well.
Also eczema, mainly on my elbows, knees, hands, and bridge of my nose. Shit's annoying.
yep. had bacne really bad for a while and this cleared up face and back
accutane really isn't all that bad. it made my skin really dry but the dermatologist prescribed some moisturizer and face wash that helps with that.
I have already taken accutane once and want to avoid it due to the cost and also having to get my blood drawn monthly is a pain in the ass.
Thanks for the tip on BP gonna go pick some up today
Acutane is just poision, here is the remedy.
Pantothenic acid supplements 5000mg/day
Eat pleanty of tumeric
Also no fap works well for me. 1 month now without supplements and not a single zit.
