Anyway, the acne is now clearing up and i have only mild scarring, most of which i hope will fade. After that i might see a dermatologist for a peel or laser on the NHS (i'm in the uk). I do however, have a load of post acne red
  5. Hi Guys, I've read this forum for years but never actually joined it until now! I've had acne since i was around 13-14, it varied in severity but always remained present, normally i would class sit as "moderate". Over the years i have tried several treatments, which have had varying degrees of success but nothing ever cleared it up.
