I've been plagued with acne since I was on the 4th grade , up until now (currently 21 yrs old). Tried everything , treatments , moisturizers ,  ,potions , black magic . you name it. THEY JUST WON'T WORK!. One day I stumbled upon this book  wherein you stop eating specific types of food to clear your face and apparently it cleared my face but , it's just not worth it man , I mean quitting dairy and sugar is a death wish for me , why do others eat whatever the f* they want and still look like a baby!? So I stopped following the regimen (cause I refuse to give up my wonderful menu just to clear my face) , so obviously , my acne came back like 4 days after. I dunno , I wear face masks while at work , had to beg my boss to allow me to wear it , I refuse to join any social gatherings (even our company's upcoming year end party) , I don't mingle with my office mates , I don't hangout (cause I don't have much friends anyway) and I can't even ask a girl out for a date , let alone look at them. Basically what I'm trying to say is I feel like I'm at a point where I give up , I'm done giving a sh*t about my acne , and I already accept the fact that I'm gonna die alone in life. Guess I'm the first man who can live on an island? I'm not trolling or anything , this is really what I feel.

I know exactly how you feel. For me the worst was not being able to attend social gatherings or look in the mirrordue to my acne. I am cured now. Please read about demodex mites on this forum, in google, and in my past posts / threads. If you are this desperate then another few weeks with a couple topicals and/or oral meds will not hurt.

Kicking acne's butt since 2017
Demodex mites are often elevated in facial/body acne and rosacea sufferers. The most effective treatment is oral ivermectin-metronidazole. Read my thread in Body acne forum for my detailed log of how I CURED my acne.

Topicals that have been shown to work are 5% permethrin, 50:50 mixture of tea tree oil / isopropyl alcohol, and ZZ cream from demodex solutions

For me none of these were enough and I had to do oral ivermectin-metronidazole

My thread detailing my experience can be found here: https://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/374213-cured-10-years-of-severe-nodular-cystic-body-acne-gone-in-weeks-long-post-extensive-serious/
