It is very true that everyone thinks he/she is a doctor when it comes to acne, however, we must be positive about this, they all just want to help us in our problem to the best they can, even if it means acting out the part of a doctor.
just don't let it get to you... be strong, have patience, and everything will work out fine in the end.
Hey Margox! It's nice to know that I have a fellow Filipino here on this forum. Well, anyway, consulting a doctor should be your primary concern if you have acne problems. More so for you because you have been experiencing acne for about a year now.
A word of advice though, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT SELF MEDICATE.
If you have some medical background however, you can. But knowing that majority of the people here at this forum have no medical background whatsoever, that is why I always tell them to consult a doctor.
In terms of RENU clinic, I have nothing against them, I am sure they have medications or technologies there that may help you, however, these treatments may cost much and I know the difficulty in finding money nowadays here in our country.
On a final note, consult first a dermatologist - not the expensive ones, but have a go at the more affordable hospitals in your area, I am sure there are some who are as good as the expensive ones...
Good post, I am familiar of some of the products you have listed. It's good that you give people options, however, (and I'm saying this as nicely as possible) I think bombarding people with many products will lead to information overload. Also, please do understand that shifting from one treatment to another may cause unwanted effects to your skin. I perfectly understand the frustration all of us feel when acne strikes, and the countless advice we get to try this and try that, but as a health care provider and a friend, I'll give just one: "Ask your doctor, ask for a prescription, and faithfully follow it."
