no problem. I'd also advise, untill you get a Dermatologist's opinion to avoid any sun exposure (get 20-30 minutes UNprotected sun everyday, spaced out in intervals of 5 minutes, then 2-3 hours no sun, than 5 minutes again) make sure you do NOT get a sunburn. If you have to be in the sun for any length of time, get a "zinc oxide" sunscreen, apply LIGHTLY, and take a very good antioxidant supplement (Antioxidant Exteme by healthforce is great, and a good Astaxanthin supplement) these will prevent sun damage from the inside, without having to apply a MOUND of shit on your face. Also wash once or less a day, with a VERY mild cleanser, I use Spectro Jel, because its comparable to cethaphil with less ingredients (no SLS for example), but as far as im aware, its only available in Canada. So do some good hard research, and find a good gentle cleanser or face wash that you feel confidant wont cause dryness.(the one you are using should be fine, good choice on that).****!!THROW AWAY THE FACE SCRUB!!*** If you dont have a water softener, get one, or buy distilled water, boil some, pour into big "GLASS" bowl, and add room temp distilled water till warm. Use this to wash face. (the idea is to keep chlorine/flouride/harsh minerals) off your face. This wont get rid of your problem. but it will help your skin maintain it's integrity, which is good either way. Dont use moisturizer unless neccessary or untill adivsed by a derm. (the less you put on your face, the better... at least till you know what it is)
Hope this helps.
P.S. if by any chance you derm recommends any laser or peel treatment, id consider it wise to simply pick up your shit and walk out. find another derm for another opinion(skin isnt meant to be lasered or peeled or scrub harshly). Only do laser/peel if you get 2 or even better 3 derms to say the same thing. (some derms just got there machines and need to make there money back, so will recommend for everything, which is dangerous imo)
Drink alot of clean water (tap water is terrible) if you can offord it, get a water cooler and find a water distributor that does multi staged filtering. Or get a 5-7 stage reverse osmosis water filter installed.
Avoid caffiene and dairy (these may not actually do anything to your condition, but they dont help either, so no harm in eliminating them)
How old are you? Do you live in Canada or the States?
If you live in Canada, and have a family doctor and are over 14, you can make your own appoinment and ask for a recommendation to a derm, no parents involved as this is all covered by government. If you live in the states, you need to get on your mom's ass for a derm. This is YOUR face, and you WILL NOT be satisfied untill you get a profesionals opinion.
If it turns out to be rosecea, antibiotics should be a LAST resort, alot of research coming out lately about the negative long term effects of antibiotics. If thats the last option start at as LOW of a dose as humanly possible for a couple months, and S-L-O-W-L-Y increase untill effective.
The last thing you want is to make it worse thru aggressive treatment, or to trade that for another health problem, damage control first.
I just re-read your post, lol. your 15, acne is natural, AND it IS NOT bad at all, please believe this. I had mild acne as a teen and though it was SOO bad, but alot of girls still attracted to me. your acne is VERY mild and if I were you wouldnt worry about it at all. YOU ARE OVER WASHING YOUR FACE!! for real! that NEEDS to stop, right now. of course when you stop you break out, this is GOING to happen, but you are damaging your skin intergrity by over washing. It may seem like it works, but you CANNOT wash away acne lol, your making matters worse in the long run. Once a day before bed, unless you get REALLY dirty or REALLY sweaty. Glide cleanser across your skin gently, dont rub it in, and for no more than 10 seconds. rinse off with warm water (No extremes, hot or cold, if its rosacea hot and or cold will aggrivate it, just warm)
Everyone in my family has had acne. Im the only one who tried to wash it away, or use stuff to get rid of it. Guess whose acne didnt clear up on its own for 12 years? yea, 3 years after i stopped trying to get rid of it. Everyone else did nothing for it, didnt even care about it, and it went away by the time they were 19-20.
Overall, you have some redness, and a few MILD acne spots, which at your age is perfectly expected, your not being judged on that small/normal amount of acne, stop over reacting BUT your skin overall, LOOKS healthy. keep washing 3 times a day and that will change. You have healthy looking skin. Derm for redness, NOTHING for acne. Dont start trying to treat your zits unless your 21-22 and still getting them. I know this is hard, but in your specific condition (very very mild and looks like it heals well anyway) i strongly feel youd be best off letting it deal with it self. (does your mom / dad still have acne? uncles cousins? how bad is it? did they treat it in anyway?) Im guessing most if not all of them (judging by looking only at YOUR skin) that they dont really have an acne problem, and probably didnt do any treatments to get rid of it when they did) if this is true your in the same boat, dont mess with it.
Sorry for making this so long, I really just want to help you prevent damaging your skin long term.
STOP WASHING 3 TIMES A DAY!!! >.<!!!!! (exceptions, very dirty, very sweaty FROM excersiing) and if its sweat from excersize, just splash warm water on face, no cleanser. Pat dry) Use cleanser an hour before bed. get 4 silk pillow sheets, use one side one night, flip, other side one night, change pillow case, repeat. Wash pillow cases WITH towels, DOUBLE rinse (once washing machine stops, set back to rinse, make sure all the soap is out) do NOT add a fabric softener to the drier for these items.
Your Parents might be (i dont know the details, nor am i interested) hard up for cash, which is why they really cant take you to a derm. If this is the case, YOU need to get a part time job so you can afford this yourself, it will also put your mind somewhere else, which is benefitial, give yourself a sense of independance / confidance. Also, girls love guys with jobs (sexist sure, but very true)
And one last time, YOUR SKIN LOOKS HEALTHY AND YOUR ACNE IS VERY MILD / INSIGNIFIGANT. As in that little bit you have WILL NOT IN ANY WAY affect the way 90% of girls look at you. what you will be judged on is how it affects your attitude, if your sad/depressed/angry about it all the time, THIS, is what is VERY unattractive for girls, and will cock block you more than the "acne" will, Guaranteed.
