I had pretty severe acne problems when I was teen. No matter what cleaning regimen I did, it just wouldn’t go away. Not to mention all the hideous scars. I had tried:
- Washing with acne cleansers
- Adjusting my diet – that can only went so far
- Tried not to touch my acne with my hands (or at least with clean hands)
Finally, it got to a point where I had to see a dermatologist (a skin specialist). The doctor ended up prescribing a strong drug regimen. I don’t recall the name of the drug he gave me. I do remember it was an oral drug. I had to take it regularly and there were some side effects such as drying of the skin and some other side effects that had to be monitored but weren’t too serious (for me at anyways).
When I completed the drug regimen, my severe acne had gone away completely. If you looked at my face now, you would never have known that I had such a severe acne problem.
This kind of drug regimen can help with severe acne problems, even make a pimple-faced teen become a beauty queen contestant.
Here’s the thing, if you have severe acne problems, ALWAYS see a dermatologist first (you may need to see your GP to get a referral). If the dermatologist finds that a drug regimen is the answer, then you may consider it. It happened to work for me but it may not work for everyone. And don’t take any drugs on your own. See a specialist for help.
