I would like to know.

I would fall in "moderate" or "mild-moderate" now, I had "moderate-severe" in the last 3 years.

It's good to see 50% of votes on "mild", hopefully 2 months from now I will be there.

I hope the graph is not skewed down, I hope severity is an outlier.

I don't know how to answer this one; as long as I take all the medications, my acne is very mild, but if I skip a day or two, it becomes severe very quickly.

I'm sorry vertigo for that... how are you handling it these last months?

Oddly enough, acne never bothered me as a teenager - even though I had WAY worse then I do now.

But NOW - in my early 20's, it bothers the hell of out of me somedays. Even though it's not as bad as it used to be.

I think part of it is that I expected it as a teenager, but now, I feel like something is wrong that I haven't grown out of it. (Even though I know one doesn't always 'grow out' of acne.)

Also, I look ridiculously young as it is and acne only makes me look younger. I'm trying to MOVE AWAY from looking like a teenager, damnit! Still, I rarely stay home because of it.

I guess I'm mild . I get a few pimples here and there and maybe one cyst like every other month but it's the red marks that's killing me, they are worst than the pimples itself. Pimples goes away quicker but my red marks has been here for about a year now. I dont know if they will ever go away. What's taking my skin to regrow back it's natural color?

is it crazy for me to say that I thought I had severe acne last year when it was actually mild? (though it really was severe a few years back). I was deluded

My scarring is moderate, thats my problem. I wish I had smooth skin
