I've been on every acne therapy available, from antibiotics both topical and oral, plus retin-A, accutane, dermabrasion surgery, freezing and lots of OTC products. I can't seem to get rid of it for more than a week. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I feel like it will never go away.
I am older than you by 2 years and did have acne on my face and back etc as a teen, still have some acne now but not as bad as then. I would advise coming off the antiboitics as you can become resistant to them taking them full time., and the topical stuff is very harsh on the skin too. I use a very gentle skin wash either olay or dove, wash my face several times a day with this, and then use a face cream such as olay for skin for women of our age. It does get better as time goes on. I cannot believe my hair still gets greasy at my age but it does, so i am washing it still at least three or four times a week. One advantage is of course is that we have not got dry skin so wrinkles are less advanced. Try the gentle approach and see if it helps you too. good luck to you.
