Acne problem - September 16th 2010, 03:22 PM

Hey folks i have had acne ever since i was as old as 13. I tried numerous things over the yeras to fix the issue but none did it. I really don't know what to do...The only thing that helped so far was taking antibiotics (because of a sickness not the face). And while i keep taking them my skin cleans real nice and less pimples pop out during those weeks (2 weeks usually). SO i'd like a suggestion on how to get rid of these damn spots. I dont know if its okay but my mom tells me its not - to take antibiotics for months to help me out on this. She says that they'll loose effect when i get seriously sick. So what do?

I think if things you can buy in shops doesn't work, then you obviously have a more serious problem with acne than these products can do. I think you should speak to your doctor, and let him know how it is, and how antibiotics have helped. They may be able to prescribe something that will work or help the situation.

Take care.

Hey there,

I would really recommend seeing your doctor. Most likely he will be able to prescribe you some type of medication, whether pills or cream. If the shop bought products aren't working this is the next stop. Honestly, it's not going to go away in a few weeks. However, given a few months and it may. You may even end up trying more than one medication. Trust me, having acne isn't the end of the world. Almost all of us have it at some time in our lives!

Don't hesitate to message me.

If he tries to get you on antibiotics again, don't bother. They work so long as you're taking them, but you can only take them so long. Really a low-GI diet is what did the most good for me.

Zhanks guys! Acne are something that just makes me feel bad about myself and im not like confident at all.. :/ I do have a girlfriend, great grades in school and stuff, but i feel bad about myself.

I tried visiting the doc a couple of times now in the past, they prescribed some stuff, none helped. just the antibiotics.
