I want to help others, so I am posting my story here. I am 40 years old and have suffered from very oily skin and acne since my teenage years.

I don't want to transfer this agony on to him by going about it the wrong way. I took him to the dermatologist for another skin issue. I can see he is a little worried. The doctor said she saw ingrown hairs on his chest that caused tiny cysts. I told her the second I see any form of acne I want to be proactive as soon as possible.
