Just a little background on me: 38 year old female battling moderate for the most part non-cyctic acne since I was 12. My problem areas are face (mostly jawline, cheeks and chin), chest, neck, back, shoulders, upper arms, and along my hairline. I have tried a ridiculous myriad of topical products but have only tried tetracycline way back in the day as far as oral meds go. The only thing tha
