The problem is I don't know what my problem is!!! (

  1. Hi, I recently turned 18 and I don't know what's going on with my face!!! It's getting really really annoying!

    I have a problem but I dont know what it is. I don't think it's acne because I don't have any pimples. I think it might be a pore problem

    Here's a you can see, I think I have HUGE pores and some small red marks (not pimples)

    Here's my question : What is my problem and How can I fix it?
    Thanks a ton!
  2. My daughter just had something very similar. It was a staph skin infection. She took antibiotics and it was gone. see a doc.
  3. I'd just go to the dermatologist. They'll be able to tell you what is up with it.
  4. I'll second the dermatologist recommendation. They have seen everything and will know what to do.

    Good luck.
  5. Wow! that sounds scary!

    Go to the DR! Staph, is nothing to fool around with!
  6. ahhh ****...
    i thought i would be able to get away with an over the counter product...

    time to find a dermatologist...

    thanks for the info everyone

    edit : after reading a little bit on the subject...i'm being a little bit says most staph infection on kids/teens are usually minor and can be treated home just by washing your face with a anti-bactorial cleaner...and it should go away within 10-20 days MAX...mine has been longer than that. Besides, it doesn't hurt at all and there is no pus like the description in the website said.

  7. That's good to know, I guess I was thinking of a normal staph infection which can be deadly!
  8. You seem to have clogged pores, Definitely nothing serious but you should see a dermatologist. He can prescribe something to get rid of it, and also maybe a facial.:shrugs::flowers:
  9. excuse me if this sounds really stupid but...

    what exactly is a facial?
    Should I also buy an Exfoliating product?
    All i use at the moment is Anti acne Neutrogeuna Soap (doesnt work but i still use it), and Neutrogena Invisble acne thing (use before going to bed)..not sure it's my problem so I didn't see any difference yet

    i tried to google it but it didn't really gave me porno sites instead
