thanks for the tips! I've never tried Spironolactone... if I can avoid having to rely on a drug as a solution, that would be ideal. I'm seeing a naturopath soon to look into ways to balance my skin through diet and supplements (can't hurt right?) which is kind of my last resort before I go back to using antibiotics OR trying Spironolactone.
As for the question regarding scars... I have a couple subtle pitted scars that aren't super noticeable from far away, but a ton of leftover red marks from cysts that last on my face for 6+ months.
