What was it? When did it happened? What kind of treatment did you apply  that finally worked for you?

i've actually been really lucky and never had any issues with my skin. i rarely even get a zit. maybe one or two a year. two of my sisters are the opposite, though - they had acne really bad :( one went on birth control and it cleared up and the other sees a dermatologist to keep her skin clear.

 I've always had pretty bad acne. Not like pizza face or anything, but I have to wear make up when I go out. I haven't found anything that works, but I'm using a clean and clear system, and I hope it works!

Probably a really bad pimple in the crevice of my nose, hard as hell to pop and it hurt so freakin bad! I used a LOT of alcohol pads.

Acne. I tried every wash and prescription creme. Nothing worked. It just went away on its own when I was 19!

Ahh if we're not talkin about acne it'd be my eczema on my hands. It would get so bad it would crack and bleed if I moved my fingers. I started using the vaseline intensive care lotion and had to stop doing dishes. Now if anything needs really scrubbed my hubs washes it.

Skin cancer. I have it surgically removed. I have a few tiny scars from it.

you're so lucky!

My sister never has to deal with acne. I on the otherhand does. Like right now, I suddenly broke out after using the wrong make-up and the wrong medication... made it worse.
