A member asked:

My acne itches, bleeds, lots of pus comes out of it, and dry dead skin around it, does this mean i will have scars if i don't get it treated quick enough?

Get treated: You owe it to yourself to be treated, now, and not just to prevent scars. The oral contraceptive pill, if you can take it, works wonders for many women. Acne that's this extensive will probably require a systemic antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline as your physician thinks best, plus topical rx. Women seldom require Accutane but this is the big guns. Good luck.
