I'm 18, have had acne since I was 14, it was probably worse before, it seems like its getting better every year it passes by.

Anyways, do I have hormonal acne?????/

If it has gotten better progressively as you've gotten older, and judging by the places it shows up, it does sound like it's likely to be hormonal acne. Lots of teenagers clear up by the end of their teens. The only time you'll have a real issue is if you're getting cysts and nodules (the kind of pimples that don't come to a head, they are quite deep and leave scars).
