Please Help!! Going to doctors today!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm new here.

I basically wanted some advice before i go to the doctors today. I'm 18 and have always had spots since i was about 13. I was the dianette for a while which really helped, but it gave me headaches so i had to stop.

I have mild acne but it really really gets me down. I feel suffocated. I don't even want to go on holiday with my friends because of my spots and how they would see me every morning.

I use a good antibacterial cleanser and tee-tree oil but its not enough. I'm so stressed out about life that i think its making my skin worse.

Please could anyone give me any advice on prescription lotions/creams. I don;t want to go on any oral medication. Basically, my skin also gets quite dry in areas and is naturally abit on the sensitive side. I'm scared of getting red skin, or just making the whole problem worse. Maybe i should just leave it alone, but i HATE waking up top these spots everyday. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

I;ve read through his regimen, and i do do all that he says apart from the benzoyl Peroxide. As i said, i'm abit wary of the redness side effects and i guess i just want to talk to a doc first incase there is something more suitable.
