I'm new to acne.org and feel not alone. I hate my acne, it started out as pimples I mean no problem. I later found out I have pretty oily skin, and then big acne came in. I get big red ones, like mountains. Swollen and it sucks, please any tips?? My dermatologist says its my hormones. And I'm 19 so.. I should've grown out of it. PLEASE HELP. Feedback appreciated! Thanks .

You're never too old or young to get acne and even though a lot of people grow out of it by adult hood, many of us, especially women will never grow out of it - which is why we have to find ways to control it. 


I am sorry that you are going through this but with this site, you'll find lots of support.   Firstly, tell us what acne medications you've tried, what your diet and lifestyle is like, tec, etc, etc.  This information will help us suggest treatment options for you


Good Luck in your search

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.


God is good to me..........more than I deserve.


James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Benzoyl Peroxide, Cotisone injections and Accutane. Nothing else will clear your acne, if it is as severe as you say it is.
