Acne

Posted by pozhiin on

Back in freshmen year in highschool i broke out with acne. Fucking intense it left marks in my face, i still get some but they're quite small, and nothing compared. Is there any one in this board who has had the same problem?
Its a horrible phase of life, sometimes it lasts forever to some (Hopefully not me)
Fucking hate acne.

So true, especially because acne is such a tricky thing. The one thing you can do is always keep your face clean! :P

I hear that semen works pretty well...

this isn't the best advice one should follow, but what i do for the occasional zit is that i lightly pick at it until it's bleeding and until i'm satisfied that the puss is gone. once the pimple begins to scab/heal, i apply this clearasil vanishing shit that i bought a couple of years ago. the stuff basically speeds up the drying process (since it contains salicylic acid). once the scab heals, it detaches itself naturally and the blemish is virtually gone, although if you're unlucky you might end up with a scar.

meh. yeah. not the best method but it tends to work when i'm feeling dare-devilish.

another thing i wanted to add was that i used to have acne on my forehead when i was a little girl, so i'd always use my mom's noxema (sort of a daily cleansing-type product) to get rid of excess oil. this stopped my pores from clogging, but for the most part, the condition of my acne remained the same... however, when i got a little older, we stopped buying the product, therefore my daily use ceased. and suddenly, my face really cleared up. dermal tissue is weird. or maybe it was puberty. i don't now.

sorry. i'm a little burnt out right now and can't piece statements together the way i want them to; it's 4am.

You think acne is funny? Pfftt . I bet you have nice skin but if you ever had a sever case of acne you would think otherwise. just like the other guy said, It doesnt matter how clean you are. Its an internal ambigous hormone change that isnt controlled by your actions. And i dont think thats funny. That sucks :(

use some of the proactive products, they really work!
if u have a really big problem go to a Doctor.
or just watch ur face twice a day with a special soap

I would certainly take a teachers word over yours... but I would recommend using your OWN brain most of all..

Funny how you think I have a bunch of aliases when I don't. No, that doesn't ring any bells. Messing around with water temperature simply is not a cure for acne if this kid's acne is bad enough to leave scars, and you don't actually want to dry your skin out, which would only cause your skin to react by producing more oil. I'm not a dermatologist, but I've seen several, and they've told me these things. Surely that second-hand information is worth more than that from a teacher?

To the person who asked the original question: Do not seek medical advice on the internet. Go see a doctor or try your luck with mainstream commercial products, but there's no cheap holistic trick that grants you clear skin if you don't already have it.

Alternating the temperature would dry the skin. Alternating the temperature would also open and close your pores.. which is good for the skin. I also like how you are saying the teacher didn't know what he was tlaking about because he wasn't a dermatologist but then you pretend you do.. lol

Interesting that we would see you around now, CelticThunder.. get tired of talking sh!t with your aliases? "shut the fuck up b!tch!" ring any bells?

[quote="Max Fischer"]I had a teacher that said to continually gently wash your face, alternating with hot and cold water using a clean wash cloth, no soap.

The hard part is remembering to do it regularly. Maybe do it every time you go to the bathroom to help remember. Another thing I think is really important is washing your pillow case and bedding really frequently. I bet your pillowcase can get a lot of oils and bacteria on there.[/quote]

It's actually bad for your skin to wash it more than twice a day. Varying the temperature of the water wouldn't do anything, and most doctors would recommend some sort of gentle cleanser. Your teacher is not a dermatologist. It sounds like he/she is someone who has naturally nice skin and does not consider that other people need to do more. There is no reason to avoid seeing a doctor. Some people have really bad skin and it has nothing to do with how clean you are. It's an internal imbalance that can only be corrected medically.

[quote="Max Fischer"]What did they give you?[/quote]
Some pills with some horrid side effects.
Chapped lips, hair thinning, sensitive eye muscle, etc.

What did they give you?

Well thats what i ended up doing, like Max said, i was afraid of getting bullshit diagnosis and stuff. But in the end thats the only thing that worked out, like i said its gone now. But it sure was a pain dealin with it back in the day.

I don't know if the health care system is really the best advice... my advice about health care is to avoid it unless absolutely necessary..
