Cheeseburger acne is the most flavorful acne.

Growing up I had what could lovingly be termed as debilitating acne, all over my face, back, chest, shoulders.  They put me through taking accutane, which was its own misery (blood tests every month, lips cracked so much they would bleed, just not pleasant).  It wiped it all out and i sure am glad my parents were able to get that done.  My old man went through the same thing.  No amount of oxy, wash, creams or whatever worked.

I think the worst thing was seeing a girl who knew me pre-acne for the first time while i was mid-facial atrocity, and when she realized who I was she legit looked horrified.  That shiats rough for a teen!  Hopefully they find a treatment that works as well as that one did.  I don't know if you can even get accutane any more.

way back in high school, i had a friend who had the nickname pizzaface.
he wondered what caused it.
he washed his face about 4 times a day, ate no chocolate, no pizza, shaved daily.
i asked if he could try washing his face once a day and don't shave.
in one week almost all of the acne was gone.
he hated the hairy face, but found a trimmer that would do the job.
i did not know if it would fix it, but the more he cleaned to worse it seemed to get.
it seemed like a simple fix, and it was.
if what you are doing does not help, change it.

Nope
Bacteria is the root cause of acne
Every time u rub ur face uve planted more bacteria.

Overactive oil glands produce all the food bacteria could want.

Washing your face several times a day is overkill and stripping the skin's natural oils away can make the sebaceous glands overproduce, making the acne worse.

Did you go bald or get other permanent side effects? Dermatologists will u usually talk generically about "clogged pores" & "bacteria" without saying what clogs them because it's so gross. It's insects living in your skin, similar to dust mites, but living & breeding inside the pores. You can cure them with antiparasitic meds & creams.
All life is disgusting, our bodies are 67% other life forms on average, & most of them non-beneficial, doctors just pretend they are beneficial because it's too gross to think of our own bodies as really being nothing more than walking, fleshy parasite-colonies. We think we are the driver of our own body, but we are just vehicles for millions of other disgusting microscopic bodies. Life is totally gross.

As a nurse my mother would bring me home "samples" of PH (not Derm) in those bright green bottles!

As far as I am aware, it's the only prescription medication that works any better than over-the-counter face wash.

Yes, you can still get it as a generic, but the company that created it stopped making it because of lawsuits. They were almost all dismissed, but it still costs money to make them go away.

One of the side effects can be depression. I have been depressed my entire life and was suicidal as a teenager. My dermatologist gave it to me anyway. After treatment, he asked me how it went. I said any side effect was less depressing than having the acne. He turned to a medical student in the room and said, "I wish they would talk to kids like him."

You mean demodex? The problem with that theory is that almost everyone has them. They are probably a cause for some people, but they aren't the only cause.

You can kill them with tea tree oil, but I'm not sure it's possible to wipe them out completely. Maybe if you change your bedding every night for long enough. But they like eyelash follicles, and you can't exactly douse those. Maybe with an orally taken antiparisitic from a farm supply store.
