15 yr female. Pictures are of acne located on my cheeks. I have some forehead acne, mainly smaller little bumps not as bad. No nose acne just blackheads. I also do have upper lip and chin acne which looks the same as on my cheeks. I also have a little bit of blackheads on my cheeks and a bit of acne on my chest. I'm looking for advice/comments/your opinions on my acne. All comments are welcomed and appreciated.

    Hey girl, hope u r doing well? I have been through your pics and my advice to you would be to go to a dermatologist and get on accutane. I had similar acne to you some months back. Was pretty depressing I must say. I wore heave makeup all the time until I could get to bed. Concealers, foundation, pressed powder became my all day long friends. My acne was severe but a lot like yours visually, underskin bumps, red, inflamed and cystic. The moment my derm saw me, he said that he will put me on tane as he did not wish to waste time on prescribing antibiotics which he was pretty sure would not cure me from his experience. You are still young, 15 years old. Am 27. But hey, at any age, acne can be debilating. So, good luck to you girl. You will be needing it. Shall you look into more information, I am available to help. Take care.

    Seemly,

    I'd recommend a solution called Zineryt. It's prescribed by a nurse/GP and it was wonderful. Cleared up everything and my face was flawless. It wasn't harsh so I had no sore burning face. It smelt like vodka, not gonna lie. It's a topical antibiotic with zinc. Your skin will become immune to it eventually but it's a 50/50 chance whether your acne will come back. I'd just say to have a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide cream ready to use after about 9 months, gradually switch over. The Zineryt will get rid of the acne, and the BP cream will keep it gone. I wish I done that after I noticed spots creeping back through, I just abruptly stopped using Zineryt and didn't use anything else! Silly me.

    There are so many treatments available to you, maybe try an over the counter treatment first, mild ones to not irritate your skin  and after a couple of months with no change, see your GP :)

    Everyone is different but there will definitely be something out there for you!
