What kind of acne do I have and how do I treat it?
My skin is oily, like extremely oily.
I can apply 1% tazorac cream or 100% tea tree oil undiluted without any irritation.
The treatments I have tried are sodium sulfacetamide, clindamycin, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, retin-a micro, tazorac, epiduo, aczone, tea tree oil, and even minocycline (100mg).
None of these treatments worked (I tried each for about 2 months) although the retinoids improved my skin by a little bit (I used it for about 6 months).
The dermatologist put me off minocycline after about 3 months because there were no results.
If you look at these pictures, you can notice that I have a lot of scars, and my skin is really red.
I tend to have more blackheads and whiteheads than pustules and papules.
