Ahh, ok. I always wondered, I mean, I had my share of a bad pimple or two and still get them every so often, but man, nothing as crazy as this, shit is nuts. Feel sorry for you guys, teenage years are shit enough as it is.
Well also those medications are kind of fucked up. Im this anon>>675672327
I went to the doctor and my insurance would pay for the meds, but he went over the side effects with me, and i noped right out of there. I used proactive to amazing results though.
It went away, for the most part, stress and sugar makes it come back for me, and i just started a new job and drank a bunch of soda last week so ive got some on my chin and near my eyebrows now
People with acne are always stupid poor people.
Clearly proves that they don't wash their face with soap morning and night like any intelligent person.
OP. your face is greasy as fuck and you have acne this bad because you dont wash your face.
Go buy a bar of soap and just wash your fucking face you disgusting pizza face. Can you imagine what girls think about you??
Actually I just started accutane like 20 days ago, it's pretty hard on your liver but so far I haven't had any issues really. Just the normal drying of skin progressing, I'm about to go searching for some new lip balm cause apparently burts bees wasn't good enough.
Yeah I had yellowheads
THEY ARE FUCKING HORRIBLE TO LOOK AT
RED SKIN AND SCARS IS ONE THING BUT THAT IS PURE PUSS AND DEMON JUICE JUST POKING THROUGH YOUR SKIN
THIS AGITATES THE FUCK OUT OF ME I JUST WANT TO DESTROY THEM ALL WITH A PAIR OF TWEEZERS
Accutane is basically over dosing on vitamin A for like 5months. That causes your pores that release oil (basically cause of acne) to shrink like I think 80+% which 5 months into treatment a smile will crack your whole face basically.
It's not worse, but you would literally be shedding visible from a mile away skin non stop for the treatment. Moisturizing just makes your life easier and you can lookout for other things like your blood tests to see if your liver is failing yet.
This stuff worked for me. Most drug stores have it behind the counter, but you don't need a prescription- just ask for it.
Why is this thread making me salivate?
Fix your fucking skin, you degenerates
Most people I knew when I was younger, whom had terrible acne like this, are the most alpha people I know. If you have acne like this I doubt shit phases you once you clear up. Cant get much lower than OPs pic
I didn't really know many greasy people in school, but there was one guy like in OP's pic. He ended up in debt to some gangster and he was basically his house maid for a few years till he got used in some shady shit. Now he's in jail for 6 years. Alpha as fuck being someone's maid for free.
Yes, but we arent talking about alcohol. Just be careful, i didnt want to risk it, because i was young and hurting your liver when you arent even in your 20s is fucking retarded.
Mines not too bad but my brother who is 24 and hardly took care of his face looks x3 worse than the picture in OP, he thought he would out grow it.
So I'm not risking it anymore and just going straight for accutane I hardly care about the side effects. I have heart disease anyways so I'll die before 40.
first time ive felt this sick in a while ://
A million time this. I am overjoyed because I don't have to deal with it anymore. Once in a while I will get a small pimple or something, but that is mainly after eating dairy and it goes away within a few days. Overall, accutane is where it is at.
on a scale of ''kinda gay'' to ''Gayer then eating a banana at a cat show'' is using concealer to cover up your acne as a guy.
I use medicine and shit's getting better but i just wanna kill myself when i look in the mirror unless i cover it up. Managed to get so good at it that everyone thinks my skin's cleared up a lot.
Niggas Ive been eating this shit for 5½ months and still very visible shit.
Left cheek is better now, not so red anymore. Please tell me it gets btter cuz I hear it affects months after finishing 6months.
this is my chin, acne is getting better. Been using proactiv for about 2 weeks now.
cool, cheers bro.i just use moisturizer because my skin is dry and then put concealer on crucial areas so they aren't red as fuck.
wow THAT gay huh? well damn guess i gotta start taking cocks up my ass.
Please educate yourself before taking Roaccutane. It has some nasty side effects that could potentionaly kill you (there are several deaths from this). I'd say avoid it but if you take it make sure you get monthly liver tests. Fats under the skin and the puss itself starts disolving into your blood, that's why it can cause problems.
turning 28 this year, acne since 12 years now FUCK YEAH
tried everything, nothing really helped. using topical antibiotic and benzyol peroxid for 9 years now so it's kind of under control
only option left would be roaccutane, maybe when 30 is in sight
>stop drinking alcohol
>drink more water
>change pillowcase nightly
>acne gets worse
I'm going to fucking kill myself. My dermatologist gave me some antibiotic that doesn't do shit. I have had acne for over half my life. I am so sick of feeling ashamed of these painful bumps on my face.
more like an ugly yellow/green sort of thing, mixed with quite a bit of blood - but you will have to apply serious pressure for them to pop ... its actual SKIN which needs to be damaged, and skin is somewhat tough ...
actually i took roaccutane for like 3 years, no death, only chips lips and dry skin. Worth the cost and the side effects imo.
You faggots won't listen and won't do this, but...stop eating processed foods, sugars, dairy, etc. Follow a paleo-type diet and stick with it. Do this and you will see results in about 3 weeks to a month. You will still have acne, but not near as bad.
In the meantime, use apricot scrub acne formula to clean face, rubbing alcohol around hair line and behind ears to cut back on oil produced from your hair and scalp, and continue to follow your usual regime with benzoil peroxide, salicylic acid, etc. If you can afford Accutane and have the liver for it, great, do that instead of the OTC acne shit.
Your friendly neighborhood dermatologist.
This is mine. Had perfect skin my whole life, out of nowhere last November I started getting spots on my chin and it just hasn't stopped. I change my pillowcase every night, drank more water, I don't have a particularly unhealthy diet and I have tried several different products which have made no difference at all. The other side of my face isn't as bad, but this shit is ruining what little self confidence I had before and there's nothing I can fucking do about it. Anons with no spots / acne, please don't take it for granted. I did my whole life and now having this shit on my face I can't get rid of makes me feel crap.
If anyone here is experiencing bad acne here, please go to your docter and ask for accutane. It has like 99% succes rate, and even though the side affects are nasty it is totally worth it.
>having some pimples, some red spots
>never eat together with friends, always plan ahead what you're going to eat, don't drink alcohol, don't smoke
nigga, in that case, i surely prefer acne
Quality advice! This totally won't DRY your SKIN out, leading to more acne or anything!
Homeless guy here. I don't even wash my face every OTHER day. I do shave my head and face every three days, never a pimple. It exfoliates your skin, even female models shave their faces now for that reason
Given the right circumstances it could kill you, didn't say it will. Also depression is another side effect. I have hidradenitis suppurativa (believe me when I say this shit is 5x worse than acne) and refused this treatment because of the nasty side effects. If you don't really care about the effects go for it but I'd still be causious.
How long have you been on it? It works for everyone, but to varying degrees. For some it helps and then the acne just comes back. The idea is to "reset" the oil producing glands so that they never produce the same amount of oil. If you can stick it out and your liver will tolerate it, you should see lasting results. Did your Dr. put you on anything for the acne scarring yet, or are you not that far along?
Ah, you can manage around it. You can eat lots of meats and slap on tons of veggies. You can have the occasional treat, too. Just stay away from shit in a box, for starters. Eat real food. You don't have to go low carb or fat or anything.
Why? It's amoxicillin, made by the same companies in the same dosages, in the same pills with the same pill ID imprints as the prescription type, you can just order the stuff without a prescription because it's labeled as being for fish.
Stop taking antibiotics for acne. It's not a cure and only temporarily alleviates it. Meanwhile, you fuck up your GI tract killing the good bacteria needed to fight disease, including the very infections in your pores you are trying to fight.
Wrote "5½ on accutane," forgot to say months, so 5½ months behind me now.
Started 20mg daily and now 40mg and 60mg every other day.
Uhh my Dr. didnt talk about the scarring, he said last time I saw him month ago that if I feel like coming back I can, my choice. I do have some scar healing oils tho.
Shave your disgusting beard and you'll solve half your problems.
I tried to grow my beard out for fun a few weeks ago. By week 2 my face was so broken out under the beard I couldn't help it anymore and shaved.
Took two days for my skin to calm back down and settle to its normal look.
Never growing a beard again.
hokay, lets get this one fast : if you're being delivered into the local ICU and the doctors start treating you for a possibly terminal illness - your only cure is amoxicillin but you've become resistant to it (which WILL happen).
Where ... will he be?
A good amount of acne comes from dirty ass pillow covers that sop up grease and apply it evenly while you sleep. Towels help collect grease more quickly from your face (which is why you want to use a new one every night) and once you get your acne under control, stop using the towels and just clean your pillow every single night.
Very cute, probably not you though.
Man, I feel bad for girls that go through this, and weight gain, wrinkles, stretch marks, droopage.
It's a damn tragedy how quickly a women's beauty fades.
also, building multi-resistant bacteria.
fuck, antibiotics are still used so carelessly for dumb shit like this.
every retarded doctor who prescribes it even though no definite proof of bacterial infection is given, should get his license terminated.
Alright. Listen here you digusting, pimply cucks. Here is how you fix acne.
1. Cut out all Carbs, go on a high fat, high protein Ketogenic diet.
2. Your pussy diet of Cheetos and mtn dew has very little Zinc, Zinc deficiency can cause shitty skin, as well as being an all around beta faggot. Take a ZMA supplement nightly.
3. Workout daily, lift, and cardio.
4. STOP EATING FUCKING CARBS
5. Enjoy your now clear face, now just fix the part where you're a pussy faggot.
