funny you should mention Proactiv but I just started on it (did it after the aboce happened and it helped alot so much I stopped using it ! (bad move) then I got it back slowly year after year it got worse, then I discovered the Sunbed made it better (but its masks it and now understanding not the best thing then when you stop as I have well all hell breaks lose!)

I have Tried let me see..many of the ranges!!! you can buy in say Target Neutrogena, Ponds, Olay, then things like Clinique, Clarins $$$ brands, then some Organic line off Ebay loved that for a while but then I broke out... then saw a Murad informmercial and tried that , which was the last one I tried but I didnt like it BUT you know what yot gotta find something that works for you...theres not one answer!

again, its not good to pick them even if they do shoot out like Worms LOL but yes its the touching I feel makes it worse and spread...try not touching your face, good look with the research I have done that ALOT and it can give you a headache but its trial and error I even read this week people use URINE Yep Pee look it up! but I dont think its something I could do! but people feel desperate and will try anything and heck if it works for them its great!!!!! try googling URINE for ACNE..its an interesting read if nothing else...



good luck!!!! and I hope you find something that works soon!!!!
I don't know how to stop picking. It's wierd. I can leave a body wound/scab alone until it falls off itself if it's on my body. If it's above the jawbone it bothers me until i "get it". If I go more than 2 days without doing it I start feeling panicky and feel like I have to check and make sure I don't have any giant pimples greeting the world before I do. When I check next thing you know I've been in the bathroom an hour and my face is slightly swollen in the spots i picked at. Urine for acne? I'm unsure about trying it, not because of the "ew" factor but because I heard that urine isn't sterile after it leaves the bladdar. If it's supposed to be glands and germs that's causing my acne I don't want to add anymore to it, although maybe the urea might be toxic to some of them. I don't know.. thanks for the suggestion, I'll investigate that further.
