  1. Okay. So after a year of struggling with my acne..along with my quickly depleting self esteem, I have decided to come to this website and ask for help. I am at a point in my life where I feel too disgusted and self conscious to leave my house and the fact that I go to school with overcritical teenagers does't help either.

  2. Hi, I'm a 29 year old female with adult acne. I've never gone a DAY in my life without a pimple on my face. I'm going to be 30 in August and I've just had ENOUGH of it.

I'm currently on Day 6 and my acne is flaring up so much. How long should I expect this initial breakout to last? Is there anything I can do to minimize it? Should I bump myself down to only taking 40mg a day? I'm going to the beach in a week and don't want to be all
