21 Years Old And Acne Worse Than Ever

Basically the title of this post explains it all...I am a 21 year old female and my acne is the worst it has ever been in my life. I recently stopped taking BC because it was making me very fatigued and since then my acne has gotten so much worse. I am still on 50 mg of spironolactone 3x a day and I use Atralin gel at night. I eat healthy, drink a lot of tea...nothing will make it go away. I have even stopped wearing make up because I don't want to irritate it. Any suggestions? I am thinking of maybe using the Atralin gel in the morning as well but I am afraid it might irritate my skin to much and make it worse? Thank you :)

im 20 male and my acne has been the worst in my life. so i tryed dan's regime for about 6 weeks now, and im seeing positive outcomes. I'm not a doctor or anything but it seems like you're using a lot of medication, mayb go see a specialist or a doctor about what you're taking. Or mayb just try not taking anything and go on the regime. And you should try gentle cleanser that way you avoid irritation.

I'm 21 female and my acne has never been this bad . I'm on doxicyclin I take one a day and clindamycin phosphate for the inflammation. I drink plenty of water and have stopped wearing make up and nothing will make it go away. I've started this tomato honey mask and it seems to make my acne blemishes a bit lighter but does not make my acne go away. I've only done it for 5 days and will continue to see if it works. So I understand what your going through :/
