It's cleared up...hooray!!

Recommended Posts

Posts on this message board often seem quite depressing, so I thought I'd add one with a positive note. I'm 25 and I've had acne for about 11 years now (long time huh). I've tried about a million different therapies to get rid of it. Sometimes, in recent years anyway, it has taken to going away by itself for a while. Well, it seems to have gone away again. I'm hoping that it won't come back. I am currently using BP gel and tea tree oil. The reason I use both is because tea tree seems to have a better effect on my chin, whereas BP keeps my cheeks clear. My forehead seems to have been (mostly) OK for the past few months, but when I do use something I usually use tea tree oil. Anyway, at the moment I'm happy. It makes so much difference that I can go baout my life without having to poke my face for new ones, or to have to worry about bright lights or people staring at me. It feels so good to look normal!! Oh yeah, I have scars, but they're only really visible in certain light and look no worse than freckles. 11 years of suffering, 11 sodding years of having to attend school, college and University looking like a toxic mutant. Please let them stay away this time.
