first of all sorry if my English is not so good, I am from Spain so English is not my mother tongue. I found the products of acne.org a couple of days ago. I have been researching a lot to solve this awful problem, and I guess my story will be very typical.
Since I was around 15 my skin started to be really ugly with a lot of spots, so my mum took me to the doctor, he gave me antibiotics that didn´t work at all. Then I went to the gynecologist and he prescribed me contraceptive pill. This solved the situation for a long time, I didn´t have acne at all like for 6 years. After such a long time I decided to stop taking it and my doctor said it was ok. So when I was 22-23 my skin was even worse than before, all the cosmetics products I used just made the situation worst, I took the pill again and this time it didn´t solve the situation.
So I went to the dermatologist, at first he prescribed me antibiotics and some products for using on my face. Nothing worked, not even a slight improvement.
Then I started accutane, little by little my skin improved, but even with accutane my skin has never been completely clear. My skin was ok (just ok, not completely well) for a year. Last summer the nightmare started again. I have used a lot of products, the ones that work better are la roche posay, vichy, avene...but the only thing they do is not irritating, because altough my skin is oily it´s really really sensitive and it gets read very easily....this producs don ´t help that much with the acne itself, but at least they don´t peel my skin and the redness is not so strong.
Right now I would say my acne is not so severe, the problem is that every single pimple I get (and I promise I don´t touch them) becomes an ugly blemish and it remains there for months and months, so even if am lucky and just have 3 or 4 pimples at the same time, the scars of the previous ones are so deep that it seems my acne is still worse. Yesterday I bought the acne.org products after seeing so much people with good results. For me is te last chance because I don´t want to try again accutane, it´s really dangerous for the health and if the first time didn´t work, why should it work the second one? I will not take again contraceptive pills because they were just a temporary solution.
I would like to learn how to cure this awful problem, I´m almost 27 years old right now and sometimes I feel so angry, people of my age just don´t have this grrrrrrr, why me?? The thing about I am most concerned is about the sensitivity of my skin, I hope it will be compatible with this products, anyway, do you have any suggestion of other things that I could do? thanks a million if you read alll this
