So, I have been using tea tree oil as a face wash and I have been using omega D-3 (liquid) and taking beta carotene and I don't *ahem*masturbate, at least for the past week. I have been using the tea tree oil for months, the omega D-3 for the last couple weeks, and taking beta carotene for just a couple days. Here is pictures of me from a few days ago. I didn't really expect any major improvement, but it looks like its getting even worse. Which isn't so, so great aha. So, I think I'll keep doing what I'm doing for now, but I'd like to look in some other things to try. I've pretty much given up on facial washes. I think going internal is my best bet.

Current pictures are below

Whoops... HERE are the pictures from a few days ago. My bad..

Tea tree oil, benzyl peroxide and such won't be enough to fix that acne. Forget antibiotics too.

Get accutane or another Isotretinoin prescription. I had acne like that and I'm so mad I went through all the other medications before getting Isotretinoin. It took me 6 months of 40mg/a day and now I'm free of acne.

Yeah, they haven't really done a thing for me. Antibiotics also didn't work at all. I'm really afraid to take accutane, its not the short term side effects that scare me, its the long term. Thanks for the advice though. I'm really going to have to try something more intense I think.
