I've been dealing w really bad acne for about 2mo now. I wash 2x/day & exfoliate every 2-3. Seeing no changes at all. Is a chemical peel a good idea?

Avoid . Excessive washing. See your Physician or PCP. Sometimes combination oral antibiotics and topical medication Benzoyl peroxides could be effective .
Better Idea. Professional consult. Exfoliation/abrasive therapy can actually worsen the outcome. For best therapy assessment of severity of acne, skin type, risk of scarring, discoloration & underlying medical conditions must be considered. Therapy will then target one or more of these factors for the outcome to be satisfactory; abnormal turn over of skin, oil secretion, infection & inflammation etc. Take care.
