Since you are male, you can't take hormonal treatments, but it sounds like the only thing you haven't tried is Accutane, whose likelihood of clearing you is >90% according to this table:

Good luck

I know you've tried Bp, but have you tried dans Bp and according to his guidelines. I'm 31 and like you had tried everything with no lasting success. This included Bp. However, I recently tried dans Bp and regimen and have been amazed. I am almost clear right now other than one or two active spots and leftover red spots. I sorta tracked my progress in a forum "pleasantly surprised...." (I forget the entire title). I am not sure what it is, but something about how protocol has been successful for me.

yes it would appear accutane is the final thing for me then, which is really frustrating.... because I am scared of that drug tbh.. the side effects, how it changes your skin thickness, hair loss, depression, dry eyes, the list goes on.. plus i'm not exactly 'depressed' in the traditional sense, but never 'happy'! you know?


mdp - not tried it no, BP burns my skin and I hate how it changes the texture making it scaly and dry, almost exacerbates dull red marks 


I am thinking of trying the paleolithic diet and seeing where I stand, in conjunction with AHA aqua glycolic face cleanser.. 


has anyone heard of the food hospital in the uk? http://foodhospital.channel4.com/


its basically all about how changing diets can heal serious illnesses.


I am almost fully convinced it was anti biotics that screwed my internal system up over the long term.
