Suffered with acne for years...

by Kathy

I, like you suffered with acne for years....not too much in high school but in college it was horrid. Tried it all - antibiotics, over the counter creams, then Accutane. That did not totally cure me but did help. Then every month I got breakouts. Once past menopause at age 50 my acne cleared, but still get a zit now and then due to stress and who knows what else.

I do try to eat right and get enough sleep. I do have some slight scarring - had peels and microdermabrasion for them. My acne looks better but is not totally invisible. I've always felt shy and self conscious. I now use BP on an every other helps some but it makes my skiin kind of flaky and itchy.
