Welcome! I think you will find a lot of in the way of support and resources here. You might consider sharing what your diet and lifestyle looks like as well as any products that you put on your skin. That way members can provide suggestions regarding their experience. Sometimes a shift in what you eat or don't eat can make a difference. Also, some supplements can help, others make it worse. There's an extensive nutrition section for some ideas.

i hope you get better soon... Any improvements thus far since your last post? I am 26, will be 27 in may , an dhave been suffering from acne since i was 11. However, the last 6 months (since september) have been seriously the WORSTTTT months of my life with my acne. I don't know whether it's been the cold winter weather or my hormones....but nothing seems to help. After seeing numerous doctors during the past 6 months, I finally saw a nutritionist/chiropractor, who said I should stay away from wheat, egg whites and refined sugars. It has been 2 1/2 weeks and the large cyctic acne that was along my jaws and up my cheeks have decreased a lot, I can still feel the bumps, but they are getting smaller..... I am still breaking out... but I just hope this regimen starts to help me long term.... I just can't live like this anymore... it's been over 16 years...
Gluten/Wheat Free, Refined Sugar Free, Egg White Free since 2/12/2013

You're obviously a very androgen sensitive person (are you a girl or a guy?) this is the reason your acne keeps returning. You've done nothing wrong (trust me I know) it's not your diet, degree of stress or sleep schedule. Your skin is sensitive to sex hormones more than the average person due to your genetic makeup. There is a chance you could become androgen insensitive by around age 25 or so and grow out of your acne naturally but if this doesn't occur I seriously advise seeing an endocrinologist.
