Good advice from torquemonster there. In fact, other than genetics, stress is the main reason we get acne. The way we react to stress is also influenced by our personality. Androgens, cortisol and substance are all linked to stress and therefore acne. However, I have never met a physician who agreed. If your physician says stress isn't a factor, tell him to go back to medical school or read these peer reviewed articles (among many others):
Chiu, Chon & Kimbal, 2003. The Response of Skin Disease to Stress: Changes in the Severity of Acne Vulgaris as Affected by Examination Stress, Archives of Dermatology, 139 (7), pp 897-900
Lorenz, Graham & Wolf, 1953. The Relation of Life Stress and Emotions to Human Sebum Secretion and to the Mechanism of Acne Vulgaris. Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine, 41 (1), pp 11-28
Also, I recommend IBMT (Integrated Body Mind Training) particularly "body scan" techniques. They have greatly helped me reduce stress and resultant acne. Don't worry, acne IS of course reversible.
Hope this helps Daze123,
