It sounds to me like your acne is very severe. In these cases a very severe acne, it is often good to be evaluated and subsequently treated by a specialist. In your case, I would suggest that you schedule an appointment with a dermatologist
. He or she can review the treatments that are currently available for acne. The first line therapy is usually a medication called benzoyl peroxide. This is a topical medication that acts to dry out the pores and also kill the bacteria that are typically involved in creating the acne. This kind of medication can be prescribed or purchased over the counter. The second line treatment includes antibiotics and topical retinoids. The antibiotics can be oral or sometimes topical. The last line, which is used in severe cases and often used in cases where there is scarring is a medication called Accutane. Accutane is an oral retinoid and it works very well for acne. It does have significant side effects though. The most important side effect that you should be aware of is that it causes severe birth defects if you were to become pregnant. For this reason, doctors
usually ask young women to sign a pledge to use two different forms of birth control
anytime they are sexually active. I hope this answer helps, and please speak with a dermatologist.
