When Did You Start Getting Acne?

i've had it for about 4 1/2-5 yrs now, and i keep thinking (and hoping) i'll outgrow it. i think i read somewhere that acne, on average, lasts about 5-10 yrs per person. who knows how accurate that is, or even if i'm remembering the exact figures correctly. but when i look around, at people in their upper 20s, 30s, and on, i rarely see people of that age with bad acne. i figure they too have outgrown whatever acne they had while younger.

I can remember my skin starting to get oily in 6th grade, so that would be age 11/12. Then by 7th grade began breaking out. By 9th grade, it was really bad.

:think: I thought you were 22.

Early 20's, I would maybe get one a month in high school. It really got bad in the last year and a half though.
