I can sympathize. I've lost many years to this.

Please explore this forum, there is so much to be learned.

Scars can be addressed with prescription retinoids and other home remedies, such as apple cider vinegar (balances pH so your skin can fight bacteria.)

Collagen supplements and your A-E vitamins, eating more vegetables and eliminating processed food are a start.

Use a good topical acne regimen with salicylic acid and a sulfur face mask (Proactiv or Acne Free.)

Are you having good bowel movements? If not, take 500mg magnesium with and fiber.

Don't drink coffee, eat sweets, or drink alcohol. You can do this! Don't despair until you've tried every route, and there's always Accutane.
