I've been working out and eating healthy, using neutragena naturals & nothings working for my acne. Could it be my stress working against it?

Not lifestyle: Contrary to what anybody else has told you, lifestyle (diet, fitness, personal hygiene, "stress") is not a major factor in acne. Being a young adult with acne is hard enough without being fed disinformation. It's not a bad soap, but not cure. If benzoyl peroside has failed, get with your physician for something that works (the pill, topical clindamycin, other options right for you). ...Read more

I've been on Accutane twice before and my acne keeps coming back. How can I control adult acne?

I've been on Accutane  twice before and my acne keeps coming back. How can I control adult acne?

Keep trying: If you are reluctant or unable to do yet another course of Accutane -- and many people do quite a few -- an oral antibiotic is usually helpful. Especially, since you are a young lady, your physician may want to look for a reason that your acne is so severe -- for example, an ovarian malfunction. I'm glad you're taking a proactive approach and i wish you luck. ...Read more

If this fails and you're offered isotretinoin, accept it. ...Read more
