So sorry to hear about this persistent problem and I recommend discussing it with your doctor
. Skin and acne
problems are something that most people will complain of at some point in their lives, and can affect over all quality of life and self confidence. An appropriate skin care regimen is therefore quite important to help a person achieve their optimal skin health. Moisturizers and appropriate cleaners are a good first step, but there is certainly the truth that some people can be doing too much to their skin, which may actually make the problem worse. Speaking with your doctor about a referral to a dermatologist
is a good first step, as he or she will be able to help clarify what your skin needs. Overall, the process of skin maturation and development is a straight forward process, and problems that arise can generally be addressed by treating one or more elements of the process that are causing or contributing to the problem. While it will likely take some patience and some experimenting to find what works best for you, it is likely that you and your dermatologist can have success. This may also require some hormone modification such as oral contraceptives in some cases, so please speak with your doctor about this.
