Around the time of my period I get very painful acne. It's the type that's deep under the skin and you can't "pop" them (igh that sounds so gross)

Any tips on helping this?

The term for it is cystic acne and it's the bane of my existence. Or the bane of my face at least.

If you smash up aspirin, mix it with a bit of water, and put it on as a mask, it might help with the pain and can also help heal them. Works better for some people than others, doesn't do a whole lot for me but I know women who rely on it as a quick fix. Mine is all the time, not just during periods (considering I don't have periods anymore) so I just keep using my prescription topical meds and hope that at the very least if I WEREN'T using them things would be worse, so that's it maybe doing some good..?

I made the mistake of buying some facial wash with salicylic acid in it. I KNOW my skin doesn't like SA, I stick to BP. Well, after almost a week, my forehead was HORRIBLY broken out. I've never been that broken out in my life, even during the disastrous time I was using tee tree oil stuff. And it was almost all cystic acne. Never have I been so glad I have bangs.


I'm almost through my first box of Nature's Cure and so far I haven't had anything amazing happen... still have cystic acne. They say it to give it two or three boxes, I may buy one more and see what happens. I'm also taking L-Lysine but again, not doing anything. At this point I would do just about anything.
Except urine therapy. I would rather have pimples than do urine therapy. NOPE NOPE NOPE
I'm thinking about asking the dermatologist when I see her in a few months about Accutane even though I really really don't want to. I figured I could at least ask her opinion. Maybe she could suggest something else. I wouldn't mind trying oral meds again even though none of the ones I tried before helped...

My coworker had horrible acne (as in, having to have a chemical peel to get rid of some of the scars) and she had great luck with Accutane. I know it's kind of nasty, but it does seem to help in cases of severe acne.

My husband had to be on accutane and while its kind of scary, his quality of life was horrible before and now he's much more confident. Before the meds, he wouldn't take his shirt off, go swimming, etc and the medication helped him "be normal".

Has he had any bad reactions to it?

I wouldn't say my acne affects my self-confidence, but I do sometimes have that "Are people looking at my acne..?" when I'm having a really bad breakout. I KNOW that the answer is no, they are not. But that doesn't stop me from being kinda paranoid about it whenever I'm super broken out.
And you will not get me out in public without full coverage foundation and concealer on, nope. I don't go places after the gym not because I'm sweaty and kinda gross but because all my makeup has been sweated (or wiped with a towel) off... okay so when I say it like that, it sounds like it affects my self-confidence, but I don't feel like it does, just that it makes me have... unusual behaviours LOL.
