Breaking Out A Lot All Of A Sudden?

Recommended Posts

Heya guys, I've just joined the site though I've visited for a long time. :) So, hello!

I'm having a problem with suddenly breaking out more than I have the past couples years. I used to be on medicine for mild acne a few years ago, but haven't really had to be on it since. Now I'm getting a couple new breakouts a day (today I had 3 small whiteheads form) and I'm fed up. I'd consider if mild still, but the clusters just look so bad. It's making me feel extremely self-conscious, and it's typically all happening around my mouth. It hasn't been this had for over 2 and a half years.

I have been stressed at home, but I've been under this kind of pressure before and it wouldn't get quite this bad. I've been doing lots of face masks/home remedies (baking soda, cinnamon and honey, honey by itself, hydrogen peroxide on spots, oatmeal mask, honey/cinnamon as a drink, drinking water) and I'm not sure if I'm impatient, or if it's not really helping. I think the scars from more recent breakouts are fading, but the breaking out every day is still a problem. I'm actually going to make a dermatologist appointment tomorrow, but any tips for getting this stuff under control/making breakouts less obnoxious until I can find a remedy?

Thanks!
