Acne Support Group

Having a bad skin day? Year? Life? Join the club. The most common form of acne is known as "acne vulgaris", meaning "common acne." Excessive secretion of oils from the sebaceous glands accompanies the plugging of the pores with naturally occurring dead skin cells (corneocytes) blocking hair follicles. Here you'll find how others are coping with their acne issues, plus new ideas to try.

    ACNE

    2
    I've been dealing with acne for about half of the year. Acne has affected me so much, I was the typical girl who only had pimples here and there but now it feels like i get acne everyday. My doctor prescribed me benzaclin, i'm pretty sure my acne is hormonal, and now i just feel so ugly. I have good and bad days but I wish I had the skin I used to.

    Adult acne -- just started

    2
    Hi Everyone, I just joined the group a few minutes ago, and it is good to know that I am not alone. I am 53, and, up until approximately one month ago, I had clear skin.
