Hi, I am 20 years old and have been suffering from severe acne since around age 17. I have been to many doctors and they mostly just give me some type of benzoyl peroxide. I have tried the regimen which I followed perfectly with all steps that were given and still only a small result. I have been through tea tree oil along with around 10 other prescribed things from doctors. Currently I am using the benzoyl peroxide from the regimen in the morning and tetracycline at night. Along with this I am taking vitamin B complex and pantothenic acid(500mg) three times a day as well as a few others once in the morning. I am in good shape and eat clean for the most part. I get my daily fruits and veggies and exercise regularly. Today i read up on a study on an extreme amount of pantothenic acid(10 grams) to clear up acne and it worked for a lot of people but as I kept reading I saw how many long term side effects that there were. I really have no idea what else to do but its getting to the point where I hate to even go outside certain mornings. Please Help.
Forgot to mention that Ive been on the regimen for around a year. Also took clarus( accutane) and it did help but it was giving terrible side effects.
