Today, I went to see my dermatologist friend for a free consultation on my terrible acne. During my visit, she said I probably won't be getting any more pimples. Excited, I asked her how she could tell. She replied, "There's no more room for it." FML

Been there. It's bad, but hopefully as you get older, you'll grow out of it. With severe acne, a mild antibiotic and some sort of topical lotion should help. Maybe ask her about a similar treatment...?

Judging by her having a friend who's a dermatologist, chances are she's an adult with acne. It could be a teenager, but to me it seems like an adult wrote this. Anyways, the 'friend' is a total bitch and I really dislike people who are mean to others without any provocation.

I hate people who think that those with acne are just SO unhygienic that if they just "washed their faces!" they'd be zit free. I battled acne for four years, and trust me, washing my face is not a miracle cure.

That does NOT work. I had heaps of pimples/acne all through high school, and it wasn't until I later went on the pill that they all went away. Which. Was. Amazing. Creams don't work.

54, thank you for your opinion. but stop making blanket statements based on your, and only your, experience and calling it fact.
I got a cream and it worked wonders for me

Thank you, No. 39.

When I was in high school I washed my face at least 6 times a day but still got called a dirty pig and told that I needed to wash my face with soap and water as if I had never heard of soap and water.

I never understood why people thought I was too stupid to wash my face. The rest of me was neat and clean and I was an honors student so it wasn't as though I were mentally deficient.

Non-acne sufferers just don't get it. I washed and washed and washed and 10 minutes later my face was completely greased over and a fresh crop of pimples was making an appearance.

It was miserable.

Also possibly a worse infection and also depending on where you pop it on your face it might get infected, travel to your brain, and kill you. (or at least that's what I've been told). If you have such an urge just use bubble rap, never tried it but it should pop just as badly as it seems OP's pimples are.

Popping pimples spreads the infections Through other layers of your skin. Notice how when you pop one, more will occur around that infected area. Also you're adding more bacteria into the the already infected area, and as previously stated, popping and scarring come hand in hand.

How rude. I hope you two aren't that close anymore. No one deserves to hear that, and as a dr she should know its not your fault, it's a medical condition that needs treatment.. I'm sorry OP
