Acne is a chronic condition that is typically not "fixed" in a short time. It requires persistence and the diligent application/taking of medication, and lifestyle changes, as well as adjustments as certain meds fail to work over the long run. Diet, exercise, water intake and careful washing twice a day and application of medications as directed can improve your acne. After puberty, acne goes away
