I just need to post a bit to get it off my chest - the scars on my face are driving me MAD!!!!!!!!

I did a pregnancy test and all my blood tests 15 minutes after seeing him, and within an hour I was out the door with my prescription! Don't have to deal with iPledge crap where I live, but I do have to see my derm once a month. I am leaving for a 3 1/2 week vacation back to Canada, so I saw m
Hey all This is my first time posting on acne.org, but I have been obsessively reading the forums for a while now. Brief skin history: - I am 23, and I have never had any major skin problems until this year. I never had perfect skin, bumpy forehead, some blackheads, a zit here and there, but nothing like what started 9 months ago - My skin started flaring up last August, and when I moved to a tropical climate (the Carribean), it continued to get worse. - I went
