have you been to the dermatologist?  I was in your shoes a few months ago…i had the worst, ugliest most painful pimples…something i had never dealt with before.  turns out i had cystic pimples.  I’d never heard of them before but they’re super deep and i would have to go in for these shot things to clear it up.  SOrry probably Too Much Information, but it wasn’t fun.  The dermatologist gave me some medicine…it took about 6 weeks to fully kick in…but my face is back to the pre-nightmare face i had for a while.  🙂

@MistySoda:  This may be unrelated, but I want to bring it up just incase. Do you use makeup? If so, make sure your makeup brushes are washed at least once a week. I went a little too long this past month without washing them, and I was breaking out all over my face. and normally, my skin never breaks out.

Can you make an emergency dermatologist appointment? I’d say it’s worth it for this occasion.

I’m reluctant to give you advice because I don’t know your skin, and different things work for different people.

Most over-the-counter routines take a few weeks to see results, and can make things worse.

Don’t over-wash, and make sure anything you put on your skin is “non-comedogenic” (won’t clog pores). Are you using new products? I wouldn’t.

You could try getting a cleanser and moisturizer for acne-prone skin, but it may just make things worse.

Also.. try to relax. Exercise to reduce those stress hormones.
