I am 16 years old female. I have been suffering for extreme acne for the past 5 years. I have tried tons of products to see which would work for me but my acne has always been the same. I have it all over my face which has brought down my self confidence. I've been going to see a dermatologist and she prescribed me two different topicals and pills, I've been using it but i still break out even though i use sun screen,moisturizer, toner, and my medication. I am so helpless now, i want to give up and have no hope left. Due to the strong medication, my chin, upper lips, forehead, and cheeks has been soooo red! I asked my dermatologist about it and she said it was a just reaction from my medication but will go away over time. It looks like i have rosacea but im positive that i dont, what can i do to help with my redness and acne?View Thread
