So I just dont know what to do no more. I am constantly getting new and more acne appearing all over my face!!!! I have been taking doxy for 2 months now, I eat well, drink shit loads of water, take so many acne fighting supplements, i cleanse, treat and moisturise but still they will not budge. I dont know what is causing them no more! What could it be!! Nothing i do will make them go, they just keep coming and coming! I feel like doing something ill regret

maybe you should try accutane? You can always stop it if you can't handle side effects. Relax, humour yourself:), you will not have acne all your life and you will find a way to deal with it one way or another. :)

I've been on Mino for almost three months, and my skin is just starting to clear. Just persist with Doxy, its benefits should kick in soon. :)

Acne freaking sucks, but you're not the only one dealing with it. Yes, everyone hates acne, but its how we deal with it that differs. If you feel like you've used up all your options I suggest going to your derm and asking for accutane. I've just finished my first month and I can tell theres improvement already. Do what's best for you, and I hope you realize that there are so much more worse things in life than acne.

I will try and perk up thankyou. And i am going to try doxy for another month and if the acne on my forehead still hasnt gone then accutane it is. Its just so hard, being 19 i should be living my life to the full because i will never get these years back but i just cant.

I understand how you feel too. I'm 22 and still have acne. In fact most of the ppl i've met here are in their 20s if not older and i'm sure they wish during their teen years they were acne free too. So try putting it in a different perspective. To us, you're still young and have plenty of time to discover the best way to handle your acne. I only wish I knew this much about my skin then which i've come to know now! It helps for me to remember there are ppl around our age with cancer or kids who have already died in car accidents or of starvation or abuse or senseless murders. Just waking up to see another day is a lot more living than a lot of other people can say. Its easy for people with acne to get caught up in their own depression because its right there on our faces for the world to see, and we see it everytime we look in a mirror. In essence though that's really all it is, appearance. So don't worry about it too much. Be better than your acne and don't let it stop you from enjoying your life.

I tried doxy too, but it just didn't work for me & I'm on oratane now (same as accutane). I know exactly how you feel, although my skin has never been really really bad I've struggled with pimples since I was about 14 & I'm 20 now. I feel like there is so much time I have wasted during the best years of my life just because my skin has held me back. I wish I could have all that time back to live again but I can't so I've just got remind myself of that everytime I'm tempted to let my skin get the better of me! & you should too :) Good luck!
