    Yes acne is a beast and sometimes Dr's are clueless because there are so many skin types. Pay attention to what your skin reacts too.. Some of those cleaners, toners and creams are too harsh for your skin irritating it more. Sometimes just cleansing with water or even honey is better. This woman told me a few weeks ago that when she ate avacados her face exploded days later so you can clean up your diet to see if that helps or keep that in mind. Stress can effect acne as well as not enough sleep. You can try changing your pillowcase more often or even taking a good quality vitamin could help.

    Hi I would keep going back to your dermatologist until s/he comes up with other treatments which might be able to help.

    Have you ever tried rouccatine (not sure of spelling). This usually works but is often a later treatment option as it can cause depression. It worked for my nephew and he was severe.

    The main thing is not to pick at any spots or pimples hard though this may be as you will risk scarring and pits in your skin.

    Acne is a skin disease which cannot be cured by simple washing - helped a bit maybe but you also need to be careful not to over wash your face as you will destroy the good bacteria which is also there.

    I had very severe acne which started at 11 and continued until my early 20's. I got so sick of people telling me to wash properly or to eat healthily - none of this causes this awful skin disease. I unfortunately did pick and pop my spots and ended up with lifelong scarring and deep pits in my skin. Please don't do what I did and persevere in getting help. There are a lot more treatments available than when I was young so take advantage of them. x

      i totally agree to every bit of what she said. i had severe acne vulgaris for 10 years. it appeared in 2005 and vanished in 2016. i tried each and every treatment and cared for my diet but all only worked for a month or so. Just be careful and take simple precautionary measures and pray, thats it. Acne which keeps on appearing again and again even after treatment has not permenant treatment. It will go for sure but it will take time and disappear with age. I automatically started feeling better when i was 25, which was two years ago.

      I am very glad you are feeling better now. I see a lot of misinformation about acne which I try and correct when I see it. I do consider myself fairly expert on it being a life long sufferer. x

    Acne and pimples can happen for a number of reasons. One of them is due to hormonal changes in teenagers, and another reason may be because of having very oily skin. There can be other reasons also. My first suggestion is to visit a dermatologist near by to get the best treatment. However, if you are looking for some good natural remedy, I will suggest you to use Aloe Vera. Aloe vera is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, meaning it can reduce the appearance of acne and prevent acne breakouts. Aloe vera contains lots of water and is an excellent moisturizer, so it is especially suitable for people who get dry skin from other anti-acne products.
