Hey all, I am Thomas Rio, I have had acne since I was about 14. I am now 24. I have managed it many different ways, and have seen very clear skin at times for a few months at a time. About six months was the longest stint I have been clear. I have the type of skin where if I did absolutely nothing, including not washing my face, I would probably end up with over 100 pimples at a time, maybe more. Although by now I have sort of lost the acne growth everywhere but my forehead. However, my upper cheeks (I have a beard) are blotchy red and itchy (I don't know why, it seems like sometimes it is what I eat)
I have used, Accutane, The regimen, Special diets, herbs, and exercise. They have all worked for me, I just hate to keep up with the healthy things, and accutane has destroyed my liver. I don't really know what to do. I am so sick of trying. I am thinking of doing a 4 accutane cycle, hopefully it will be the last ..I will post again perhaps tomorrow when I start my accutane cycle.
Everyone feel free to comment with helpful hints and ways to get acne free.
