Hi there, this is my first post and firstly I want to congratulate all of you for such an awesome board and site.
So, I'm 21 male and I have acne since 13. I always had it on my face, mild/moderate, and I never was that self conscious about it. But the situation changed last year.
And that change was directly related to my weight. I was overweight since my early teens too, but then I decided to go to the gym, where I lost 23 kgs (50 labs) and started to bulk as well. Due to my previous weight situation, I avoided the beach for years and years, ashamed of my body shape. So, when I was fitter, I went to the beach and... Puff!, my back and chest simply erupted.
Dozens and dozens of whiteheads. I rushed to the doctor and she prescripted me doxycilin and erythromycin, which had a good effect, especially on my face. My chest and back situation, on the other hand, stayed the same. I went to the doctor again and, this time, accutane and BP 5% were what she prescribed.
I decided not to go directly on accutane and I'm on BP5% for three weeks. The situation is much better now and I guess it will clean the things in some months.
It's winter time here and I really want to go to the beach next summer. So, I really want to know what would you recommend me to do. Should I go? I would love to, but I'm afraid...
Thanks in advance.
