My Disgusting Acne

Right guys, this is really stressing me out. All my life I've had really clear soft skin. Then all of a sudden this acne sprouts up and in the space of a month or so I look repulsive.

I am really self conscious and I have now started to go out less because all my friends stare at my face and it's horrible.

I have tried everything over the counter and everything else.

My doctor has recently put me on tetracycline for about a week and it already looks worse.


I have attached a picture for you all to see, sorry for it being disgusting, I know.

BTW I'm a 16 year old male.

I appreciate any comments relevant to this post, thank you so much.

you're lucky, i got my acne when i was 13 and its only just starting to go at 15

i was on tetracycline and it takes a good few months to really get going

a week is far too short a time to notice any differences :)

if this does work they'll (the derms) will probably perscribe roaccutane which apparently works wonders :)
