Does It Ever Go Away?
Posted 27 March 2012 - 11:50 PM
I am going to try and keep this short.
I am 18 years old male, my acne started appearing around 16, before that I was somewhat clean with 1-2 pimples. Since I started breaking out it was getting worst and worst. So after a year of this I went to see a derma. He gave me doxycycline. I was taking it for 3-4 months and everything looked really good. I was almost clear, I just had some redness in areas that were pretty bad.
I have been off the antibiotic since december I think. But recently I started breaking out bad. I went to see my derma again and he wanted me to start taking the antibiotic and also told me to buy isotretinoin but not the pill but one that is applied directly to the face. But when I read what this drug really was I just thought that is not right...
So know I am no longer visiting this derma and I decided to get rid of all medication and just try and change my diet.
For 2 days now, I have avoided junk food, coffein, sweets and other things that might cause my acne. Instead I've been eating apples, freshly squeezed orange juice and carrots. Also rice and potatoes
So far I can actually see a slight improvement and overall I feel my body is responding a lot better the the zits.
My questions are
first, what food can you suggest because I feel very limited
And also is it even possible for sever acne to go away on its own? And How do I know if I have adult acne or I just have to wait and see?

Acne is a chronic disease that is caused by inflammation . There are certain foods that aggravate inflammation even more without you even knowing. Such as potatoes, rice, salt, sugar, processed food ( go research)
Here I thought all fruits and veggies were good but not really, in fact I use to eat bananas everyday without knowing that it was considered to exacerbate acne more.
My diet consist of a very strict regimen where as I only eat salmon, chicken and turkey. The good stuff
I take supplements such as Probiotics after a meal and Vitamin C.
I receive my Omega 3 and vitamin A from my salmon, fruits and veggies.
There are many alternatives to curing acne even Severe Acne. I dealt with embarassing cysts, pustules and papules that I had to take action for myself. Have faith and stick to a good skin care regimen, supplements and diet . With all that set you can control your acne.

About the diet thing though when I went on a diet for a month, I still got the same amount of bullshit I regularly would get when I would eat and drink things I normally do. For me there is no correlation between what you eat/drink and acn*.

Teenage acne goes away adult acne DOES NOT. My dermatologist told me this. You are so young you are likely to grow out of it.
DId he specify on average at what age adults get acne free?
