I seriously believe that my acne problems worsened at least five times when I started treating it.

I went from having mild acne to moderate.. back to mild.. and now moderate again (I make these classifications based on how many blackheads/blemises I have)

I went to the dermatologist again in the past week and I'm using BenzaClin with Tazorac twice a week.

Now I've gone from having moderate acne to having very noticeably dry skin, which in my opinion is worse because a lot of people have acne but flakey skin is a lot more out there.

I think it would've been a lot better to just deal with the mild acne instead of loading up my skin with over the counter products, regimes, and dermatologists who have no doubt screwed me up for good.

Funny you should mention that.

Back in 8th grade, most of my acne was on my forehead. A lot of acne, too. I had short hair, and so none of my forehead was covered by hair. I used Differin, Retina Micro, Benzyclin - everything, and it presisted, even got worse at some points. I stressed majorly about this.

At the same time, I was growing my hair out and some of the hair began to cover my forehead. Eventually it was completely covering it. I stopped putting any creams on it because the hair would get in the way, but acne started to disapear, to the point where I had NO active acne. So really, I think a major issue for me is stress. Could be it for you too.
