I've visited a couple dermatologists since i was 13 or 14 just recently i saw one 4 months ago and she reccomend diferin to me. But i am kind of past the stage of getting constant pimples everywhere. I am 17 years old and i get maybe 1 or 2 new pimples a week. But what really bothers me the most is my dark spots on my face. They were A LOT worse when i was younger but they kind of cleared up now..but i still feel UGLY without makeup when i go out in public. I have been using DDF benzol peroxide 10% for a year and i really loved it because the sulfur would dry up any new pimples i would get. But for some reason they took it off the market and i'm stuck. I got this product called New Twist that is a chocolate clay like mask i wear at night with 5% benzol peroxide but i can only get it in Florida and i'm in Europe right now and i ran out of that stuff. So now i am looking for something SAFE to purchase online that will keep helping clear up my acne & my dark spot/scar marks. I tried Hydroquinone from Proactiv and i just got little red bumps everywhere on my skin. I HATE PROACTIV. So i was wondering if youo guys could help me decide whether i should use more benzol peroxide prouducts or a product with Glycolic Acid. I've never tried Glycolic Acid before so..iduno.

Thanks everyone.

have you tried Retin-A? I hear its good with the leftover stuff. Im using Tazorac and it seems to help. Some oral medication can get down deep and take care of scaring as well.

I havn't tried Retin-A yet. I'm really scared because everytime i switch to a differen't acne medication my face breaks out really bad. I tried a test tube of Tazorac once and i broke out pretty bad with big zits. I'm sure it works though if i kept using it but i'm too self concious to walk around with pussing zits ya know. What do you reccomend for oral med?
