First of all I would like to say, that I'm so grateful to this community, and I'm so happy that I've found this website.. I like the way you're sharing feelings, pics, experiences etc, it's making me (and i guess a lot of people) feeling much better, feeling comfortable and not feeling alone with all this acne.
I'm a 17 y/o boy and I've been suffering from acne since I was approx. 14 y/o. It's very hard for me writing this, and tears come to my eyes because before acne came to me, I had the BEAUTIFULIEST face - I swear and comparing nowadays pics with the old ones makes me feel so bad, and just thinking "Why me" .... Most of the people in my class in school have a very smooth skin, and just a little amount have mild acne, and then there is me
I've tried a lot of products including Dalacin, Clindoxyl, a lot of other product I don't know what is called in english. Im currently on Erythromycin pills (2x250 mg per day) - and I have been taking these pills for approx 15 days I guess. I don't really know if they have helped so far, I guess a bit on my cheeks, but not a huge difference. When I was younger in the start of my acne process i scratched it a very lot, because it was so new to me, and didn't really know how to treat it, no advice was given. This has resulted in, that i have lots of scars, especially on my chin and cheeks, and I HATE it
I just felt sharing my experiences with you guys, and i REALLY love how open you are, and I would be aswell. I have never told any about my acne experiences, and how bad i felt about it.. And sorry for my bad english..
