For the past 5 years, I have always had blemishes. I can't remember the last time I had clear skin. Now my acne is so bad, red and painful. Majority of marks on my face aren't even spots, they are acne scars. I don't know what do do because I've tired nearly every over the counter facial wash, I have been given 4 different types of medication from the doctors, I have tried every home remedy and I've even became a vegan who only drinks water. Nothing works, someone please help! The effect my skin has on my already bad mental health is horrendous. Any advice would be amazing!

Hey so I would need to see pictures but if over the counter isn't working for you id go to professional grade stuff. Medical spas and dermatologists  sell medical grade products with no pore cloggers in them. So I would go to a local med spa or your derm for that. As for scarring you need to focus on clearing your acne first and then you can work on clearing up the scarring. Vitamin A cream usually helps or retin-a to help clear the scarring. A laser treatment wouldn't be the best right now if you still have acne but if you don't have active acne anymore that would be a good option. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and micro needling can also help with scarring. I went to see an acne specialist when my acne was so bad and the doctors couldn't help me so that is always and option. Good luck!

You need to discover the cause of your acne as it can be the health problem. For example,stomach diseases may cause bad acne or you may have hormonal imbalance. In this case creams won't help you.
