I'm starting to feel really low because of the acne I'm getting and from the treatments I tried so far it just seems to get even worse.
I'm a 24 year old male and it started last summer. This week I've had my worst nodule (what I think it is anyway) ever and now I don't want to leave the house and feel so alone with this issue. I've got scars and I used to have clear skin.
I've attached some photos just be prepared.
The first is the one I have now and the second is back to a bad breakout in March..
I'm taking Erythromycin prescribed by my Dermatologist since beginning of May. I think I've seen a little improvement with less pustales but when I get acne now, it seems to be really bad.
Before I take Isotretinoin and experience the side effects from it, what could cause my acne to be this bad and how could I potentially fix it? Is it my facial hair?
I've bought Acnecide from Boots just waiting for the Pharmacist's review, and I bought this cream called Eclat from Amazon. I just feel vulnerable I'll waste my money on expensive treatments which don't work.
Also, I have eczema and suffer from dry skin. I have some allergies and I've tried Lymecycline antibiotic and it didn't work.
Any advice appreciated, I give up asking my dermatologist for alternate treatments.
