    I’ve struggled with acne ever since I tried a birth control pill back in 2019. I switched bc methods and I still had the acne so I went on Accutane to treat it. I’m still on it and I have to eat something with 20g of fat each time I take the medicine every damn day for the 7 months I’m on it in...

    I’m currently on accutane for my very severe acne that I’ve had for over a decade, so obviously I have lots of scarring. I have a mix of box, ice pick, and rolling scars. I’m looking at procedures to get done after the accutane waiting period and so far I’ve heard good results with subcision and...

    I have cystic acne and verrrryyyy oily skin. Clearly it seems like my testosterone and androgens are high based on these symptoms. I also have amenorrhea and it has never gone away regardless of my weight (even in residential treatment). However, I googled and saw that people with anorexia has...

    Some questions I hope you guys will answer: Can you explain how your skin is right now? Have you noticed your skin producing more blemishes the deeper you spiraled into anorexia or the opposite? Do you think having an eating disorder in general affects acne and how much acne one has? -If so...
  5. Orthorexia
    I was wondering who else got into this hot mess because of acne? everything I eat that isn't "clean" scares me. Every time I have a monster i think about bad skin. Chips? acne. Fatty sauce? acne.

    Good morning streaks! So I'm a New Yorker who's gonna be staying home until AT LEAST May 15th. I've been home since March 16th, and completely dropped all of my beauty routines. I never wear make up, so taking less time to focus on external appearances has been great. I stopped shaving, doing...

  11. Bulimia Discussions
    Hi, I used to have anorexia and then I developed bulimia. I've been purge-free for a more than month now, I eat healthy and drink a lot of water, but my body is still so swollen, my chipmunk cheeks didn’t changed, I have still problems with acne and I’m bloated after every meal. Please, how long...
