        I’m 32 and still suffering from acne. Doesn’t sound as bad as yours, but I will randomly get cystic acne. Usually during stressful times but also just inexplicably and randomly. I currently have 3 on my chin right now, and old red marks that take months to go away. So hecking annoying, and painful too. It’s really frustrating dealing with this at our age when everyone else seems to have clear skin. My wife and I are currently trying for a child and our doctor advised against it but I’m just going to go on accutane after.

        I’m so over wasting money on topicals, supplements, changing diet, being scared of getting a blemish before every big event, job interview, etc.

        Every topical I use works for about a year before eventually losing effectiveness, then I’m back at square one. Time to just nip it in the bud with accutane. I’ve avoided it for years because I’m scared of the side effects, but enough is enough.

        Oh, and I’ve gotten blemishes on my lip line too. Legit the most painful and stubborn ones, take forever to go away and look like shit. I’ve never read of anyone having them before so that’s interesting. We should be acne friends.

          Did you read on the sides of accutane? It can potentially give you IBS and kill your libido, i know someone that had this. If you haven’t try azaelic acid, it pretty much stopped my acne until I started purging from tret.

          I feel you though one of my biggest concerns is thinking about how I’ll look on a date when I can’t eat anything but water and a piece of lettuce. I live in constant fear of getting acne so I cook all my meals, hopefully I’ll find a girl that struggles with the same issue but then again if I was a girl with this issue I would be attracted to guys that don’t.

          Anyways accutane purge will give you cystic acne during the purge thats a given, however you should really look into the sexual side effects and long term reduction of oil production that comes with it. Natural oil production keeps our skin looking plump and youthful, you would have to offset that with more moisturizer i guess.

            I’ll look into azaelic acid. I am fortunate that I am already married. Many times I don’t give a shit. It’s really just events like parties where I know photos will be taken, job interviews, things like that where I will start feeling self-conscious.

            My acne is definitely painful though. They are usually very deep cysts so it’s actually painful when I open my mouth to eat and stuff. Like right now I have one very close to my lip so I basically have to eat only things with a knife and fork. I tried to eat a big hero sandwich and it was very painful yesterday. That’s what I hate most about it. It’s just so annoying waking up and looking in the mirror and seeing a new cyst emerging. Basically ruins my whole week.

            Oh yeah and my wife actually doesn’t have acne at all. She’s lucky. She says she barely notices when I have a blemish but I think she’s def just trying to make me feel better lmao

            I’ve changed my diet a few times and never noticed much of a difference. I have no idea WHY I get acne. That’s the most frustrating part. I go to a dermatologist and they go "Hmm, you’re a bit old for acne… Here’s some gel to use." but they never investigate or run any tests to see WHY the heck I am getting acne at 32 years old.

      joke is that derms, like most medical professionals, always prescribe the same thing because it works on most of their patients
      but if you are one of the outliers, youre hecked because theyll still prescribe you tret because hey its still 5% better than nothing

    Tret was the only thing to ever touch the acne I had and it took about 5 months for results. I did tons of topical treatments before but they did literally nothing.

      Thankfully the dark spots under my lip will go away after awhile which is great, I’ll give it a year or two before I kms. Joking of course not going to do that…..

    its great that youre trying to improve your looks but it’s good to remember that not everything HAS to be perfect. you look totally normal, there is absolutely nothing wrong with your face.

      Cook all my meals, only water and smoothies, no junk, greasy food, alcohol. I think my genetics are just shit, not going to have a kid and curse them with this.

    Stop.eating junk food for starters.
    Get some sun on your face, try to tan as best you can.
    Eat more lean red meat and chicken.
    Try to avoid tomatoes and solanums in general.
    Try eating whole grains.
    Render out beef tallow (instructions can be found on the internet) and apply just a little bit every day on your face after thoroughly washing with glycerin soap.

    There’s so many things you can do to get rid of your acne anon, buying into the pharmaceutical jive will only make everything worse.

      Been doing this for almost a decade it doesnt stop it completely only prevent it from getting worse. The thing is acne leaves scars and pigmentation that you can’t get rid of with just eating a healthy diet. Isn’t the sun bad for photoaging? I would like to tan though its like makeup to even out the skin.

        Well, you need natural sunlight exposure for the cholesterol that builds up in your skin to actually process into vitamin d, if you’re not having exposure to the sun and you’re covering yourself with sun block, you’re getting hecked in the ass with excess sebum and a possible calcium deficiency. All those skin care influencers, all of them are lying to you about wearing sun block and never letting their skin touch sunlight. If you’re going to get some sun exposure, don’t wear sunglasses and make sure that at the beginning your not naked in the sun for more than 30 minutes, or else you will do some damage to your skin

        Also, you’ve been avoiding tomatoes and solanums? What lead you to that? (Interested because it’s not common)

          Actually I lied about the tomatos part but I’ve started eating less of it, a relative told me to not eat too many tomatoes because it causes flaring just like how gluten/oats would. What about exposing a part of my body to get sunlight would that spread throughout my body or would I have to get it on my face too?

    I want to lick the side of her acne filled face, call her an ugly b***h, choke her and tell her it’s that easy, if I wanted to you could be dead like that….then tell her it’s going to be okay

    Im hoping tret will save my skin from scars and hyperpigmentation but I also havent eaten fast food or pizza for more than a decade and its going to be that way until I stop caring about my skin.

          wow that’s stupid
          you can likely buy it from indiamart or something though. Last time I was in the states I could buy it OTC in 2% concentration and with a prescription 4%
          that’s just hecked up that the FDA gays just outright banned it over some unfounded carcinogen thing

    I am hecked right now too. My skin is normally pretty decent. I’ll get a pimple here and there but nothing crazy. About three weeks ago I started to break out VERY badly all around my chin and jawline. Big deep painful bumps that take like a week to even go away. I have no idea why this is happening. Nothing in my diet or skincare routine has changed at all. I have to go to to the office tomorrow and am absolutely dreading it. I look horrendous with six big red blotches on my chin. I’m 26, so this is just really random. I wonder why this happens?

    Actually, one thing that’s different is that I have drank a little more frequently these days. I wonder if alcohol can cause hormonal acne?

    The girl in your pic is clearly having a fungal infection, the same that leads to dandruff and sebhoriaic dermatitis.
    I’ve seen people suggest ketoconazole shampoo on their face and it literally goes away after 2 weeks.
