i started getting acne when I was 13 years old. When I was 15-17 it was really bad, so severe my parents made me go to the dermatologist. It has been about the same for the past 5 years in severity.

Since then, I have had bad psychological effects. I can't do anything strenuous w/o thinking about what it will do to my face. I can't go more than a half hour w/o looking in the mirror. Sometimes I don't want to work out because I will sweat and make my acne worse.

Now I am almost a 23 male and I feel like I have been in a permanent state of puberty for nearly 10 years. Anyone else going through this and is it normal to have acne for so long?

there are people on this site that have had it for 30 or 40 years, consider yourself lucky...

Yes I know, but they are probably women who get acne all the way up to menopause.

I am probably on my way to having it for 30 years.

one more question: Does the bacteria become immune to topicals and if so, which ones?
