Acne Struggle

By acneprob,

I have struggled with acne since I was a teenager.  I was always told that when I get older it will get better.... Well they were wrong!!!!! I still have acne and I am 24 years old.  But not only that but it was waayyyyyy worse than it has ever been.  It has gotten so bad that I don't even want to get out of the house.  I do because I have to.  I have tried almost every acne regimen out there and nothing has worked.  I used this one soap that had 10% benzoyl peroxide in it gave me a chemical burn.  Ever since then I haven't been able to use things that are very harsh.  I have to use a bar of soap (dial) to wash my face.  I have went to the doctor thinking maybe it was my hormones... nope I have had my blood drawn several times and they have run several test and everything has come back normal.  I have been put on doxycycline, prednisone, amoxicillin, retin- a.  Nothing has really worked.  The prednisone has worked the best for it but once I get off anything it starts back up again.  I am still using the retin-a which is extremely painful and is actually making my face worse.  I am at the point that I don't know what to do.  I cry about it everyday.  Nothing has worked for me.  I look around and here are all of these people who have perfect skin.  I just wonder why.... why do I have such terrible skin when I wash my face twice a day and try to take care of it.  I have an appointment with the dermatologist in a couple of months but I am just worried that they are going to just put me on antibiotics.  I feel like these are just band-aide fixes.  They fix the problem until you get off of them.  I feel like there is a root cause as to why my face won't clear up.  I feel like I have been struggling with this for tooo long and I am ready to have flawless skin.
