Yes. I have pimples all over my face. It's not even noticeable and they aren't that big, but I'm ****ing tired of them.

I have been to the dermatologist, and they have given me all the $400 creams and such, and none of that bull**** has worked. So I've looked into it, and I have heard that the following works very well:

Toothpaste
Lemon juice mixed with rose water
several things involving Neem (Capsules, leaves, etc.)
ground orange peel mixed with water to make a paste


Any of these work? Any other home treatments? I'm tired of shelling out money for crap that doesn't work.
Today I feel electric grey
I hope tomorrow, neon black

Accutane. Look it up. Get your derm to put you on it if you are having trouble.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

Ive heard of like egg whites or some crap, but yeah I can't find anything that really works for me at all. I just keep buying different acne lotions and washes at stores.

toothpaste actually does work very well. just make sure you do not abuse, it can dry your skin out a bit. not usually, but sometimes

I find eating fruit and drinking water helps... doing it consistently every day will at least do you a little good.

That said I only ever had a few small pimples every so often. But anyway apples are damn good go eat one.


and dinerex shampoo. no more acne for you!

the side effects of accutane are SO MUCH WORSE than what it treats. youd be an idiot for even considering it

a lot of it is hormonal and really cant be helped, but some of it can be due to diet and hygiene

This is true. But if u can deal with uncontrollable mood swings, terrible chapped skin, and a loss of hunger for six months then your fine. I took it, there was like 20 pages of side effects. Also have to run blood tests every month to make sure your liver doesnt get dead. Lol.

salicylic acid... look for that thats the most important thing in getting rid of it, you can buy like sets of stuff with different steps, one of them will be something with this acid and its really the only important part, on top of that get good sleep and drink lots of water.

just buy some basic face for men from nivea or neutragena or something. Use it everyday when you take a shower. Stop looking at so much porn and/or jacking off so much, and eat lots of fruits and stuff. don't spend all of that money on prescriptions and ****, from what i understand that stuff is for serious cases. It sounds like you have normal acne that everyone else goes through. there's not a whole lot you can do to get rid of it, but there are some basic things that you can do to minimize it.

I was on acutane for about six months and the worst side effect I had was dry lips...I carried chapstick or lipbalm around sometimes...

There's all that hype about depression and suicide or whatever, but unless you are already depressed/suicidal or it runs in the family, you should be perfectly fine...

The way I see it, acutane only raised my self confidence and self esteem because my face cleared up like magic...

There's also the concerns about birth defects in women, but judging from the fact that you are in The Pit, I doubt you are a woman of child-bearing age...

The cystic acne I used to have was not only horribly ugly but terribly painful, and no other prescription meds worked...My skin cleared up pretty fast, and now that I am off it I am still fairly clear, or at least normal...My only regret was that I did not go on it soon enough so I wouldn't have so many damn gaping scars all over my face...

So like everyone said, if you are SERIOUSLY concerned about it, see a dermatologist so you can make a truely informed decision about acutane...In my experience, home remedies aren't worth the time, maybe look into some good over the counter stuff if your acne is only mild/average.

i got put on soladyn and that has done alot! That plus the Tazorac and washng my face alot has helped so much!!!

Accutane

best drug out there. i used it myself and cleared up amazingly.

basically its a drug you ingest. you face will go VERY dry and your acne for the first few weeks will get worse. (do not do this during winter or the dryness will have your face peel off, and not in the awesome face melting solo way).
but soon the dryness goes away, your acne will go away.

i remember being told the side effects were that i would be sadder (and or depressed), although i didn't feel that AT ALL. i was just annoyed at the dryness but yea no biggie.

also every month you'll need a blood test. but seriously its worth it, the blood test is like an hour tops out of an entire month. dryness lasts only like 2-3 weeks. do it


edit: and the thing is you'll only need to be on it for like 2-3 months depending on severity

Just wash your face with hot water and soap everyday like 2 times a day and you'll be fine.

I've heard that aspirin has the same thing in most acne treating creams.

Also, change your diet, and wash your face with soap.

Accutane is working wonderfully for me. The only side effect I'm experiencing is chapped lips, and that can be fixed with an application of chapstick every hour or so. I think it is definately worth it.

I swear, I spend less than two minutes at the lab to get a blood test

Minomycin. Get a script and buy it. Worked like a dream for me. Zero side effects, except for the fact that it took almost 6 months for the course to be completed, but you see effects in just a few weeks. I'm back on it again because the drug works but only temporarily and when you go off it, if you're still in puberty you'll notice acne coming back after a few months.

Also, to everyone who's saying to just deal with it: in the end the point of this medication is to prevent scarring from severe acne. If you have a few pimples then deal with it, but acne can get pretty serious when it stops being a few spots and becomes a rash-like patch of painful pimples (awesome alliteration by me).

Keep in mind that all of these names may just be trade names for what is the same drug.

Doxycycolene or however it's spelled. It comes in blue capsules and works. But youll get 2nd degree burns if you go out in the sun for too long. I'm taking it now.
#36
I never really have bad acne, just the occasional pimple, but in my completely unscientific studies I've found that drinking Mountain Dew causes me pimples. I'm not saying for everyone, but for me, trust me, it does. If I drink one, bam, I'll get one. No Dew, I'm good. It's unfortunate becuase I love Mountain Dew, but I just had to move on to Coke.
#37
I've found that rubbing alcohol works wonders. Worked better than anything else I've tried.
#40
Aloe vera plant - it truly works. Cut off a bit of the leaf thingy and rub the mucus-like gel over your acne. Let it dry, and I swear to god it works wonders.
