Help! What Is This/what Can I Do? [Pics]

Recommended Posts

Ok so i'm 16 years old and have had acne for about 3 years just like these pictures. I've never had severe acne like big cysts or anything, just consistent mild acne just like this.

I've used several different products, mostly just Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, and occasionally Triclosan. I admit I am a bad picker just because my acne makes me self conscience about my skin.

I just want to know how bad is this acne and what is it and what I can do about it? ANY help would be appreciated.

Honestly, in my opinion, your acne is so mild. You may actually be over treating yourself and making the problem worse, although it's not bad at all. But if it really bothers you, go to a dermatologist. He/she will probably give you a cream or something to put on it and you'll clear right up :)

Whatever you do, don't take antibiotics. It looks like you have mild acne that will go away as you age. Antibiotics cause irreversible damage..

Yeast overgrowth that is nearly impossible to get rid of once it takes over - which becomes a precursor to cancer. Also, antibiotics will kill so many of the good bacteria in your gut that some of the strains can actually become extinct.

Thanks for the info! Even though I've been on antibiotics (Doxycycline) I'll have to stay away from them.
