Again pics often don't capture anything! This is before I started my present regimen. I first got acne when I was a junior in high school. It started off gradual and then erupted during my senior year and then off and on thru college. We are talking big pussy cysts and tons of red marks! I initially tried over the counter department store lines as well as your typical benzoyl peroxide and BHA. Then it was on to the family doctor were I was put on topical disinfectants, sulfur lotions, and oral medications such as tetracycline. Later on it was retin-a micro. Then is was on to the dermatologist where he gave me liquid nitrogen and glycolic acid treatments. I have also done the pantothenic acid vitimin regimen. FINALLY!!! After nearly 10 years I have done the research and found a regimen that works! My skin has cleared up in the past three weeks and I am very happy. I still have a few scars and psycological effects. And I am hoping to address those now. It's amazing how much people who suffer from acne think about acne. It consumes you! I want to know how it is not to obsess and feel this way! I hope that we can find out together!
