Thank you for all your support- its nice to finally have people understanding what its like
  11. thanks for the info everyone! hopefully ill get on accutane and have a positive experience has acuuatne worked wonders on any of you?
  12. thanks for the advice, accutane it is then! (: hopefully its be sorted soon enough. i use bio oil but that just makes me break out- the wash cloth idea sounds good though ill give it a try. thank you
  13. hey thats good news! im a girl and i have really sensitive skin and i still have moderate acne. my skin is heavily red marked not really scarred. whenever i use an exfoliator my skin will get redder coz of the sensitivity- any brands you recommend?
  14. I use bio oil and it works a treat! BUT if you still have little sots or mild acne due to the oil it will aggravate it and you will break out. only use it on flat skin otherwise you will regret it
