I started having moderate acne in 8th or 9th grade and it has gotten continuously worse with age. I am now 18 and I have tried a variety of different treatments. A majority of them worked somewhat but usually my skin would somehow return to almost what its like without any treatment (it's almost as if my skin adjusts to it ). Ever since I've started having acne my face has continuously gotten redder and redder. In fact, I don't think my acne would be so apparent if it weren't for my red skin that stands out on my fair face.
I'm thinking of starting on Accutane just because its so stubborn and I have some acne scarring but I know that it will just make the redness worse. Any advice? Should I take accutane or should I find a way to sooth my red skin?
Right now Im using Aczone, tazorac, and an antibiotic for pimples which have helped a bit more than anything else I've tried but every time it's "that time of the month" I break out, not with pimples though.
PLEASE any help with soothing my red skin?
Note: I have oily skin but at the same time I do seem to peel a bit around my acne.
THANK YOU SO MUCH
