I've had mild to severe acne for 9 years now. How can I completely get rid of this burden and avoid picking at my skin? I'm getting desperate.

Serious Rx: You need to be on medication. In your case, it appears that the oral contraceptive pill did not clear you, though another preparation may. Try not to pick the lesions, but this isn't the key -- you're going to pick them. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in 2 weeks (; it probably won't), your physician may add topical spironolactone, a topical or systemic antibiotic, etc. ...Read more

Or an antibiotic may be added to your topical rx and you might remain fairly comfortable. Be strong and good luck. ...Read more

Are there any good home remedies to get rid of acne and lighten skin?

Are there any good home remedies to get rid of acne and lighten skin?

No: "Pop" remedies (lemon, honey) are cruel pranks. Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated is your best over-the-counter treatment and will clear milder cases of acne. You should not be trying to lighten your skin -- you are likely to disfigure yourself like Michael Jackson did, and in the US (which sets trends worldwide), judging another by skin color is the height of ignorance. Embrace who you are. ...Read more

What's the best way to get rid of acne when you have very sensitive skin without going to a dermatoligist?
