I started getting it when I was very young, and still have it... frustrating! I've had it about 7 years or so, and I'm 17 in a couple months! It doesn't really help much when society puts so much emphasis on aesthetics. Whatever happened to inner beauty? It also doesn't help when you have manic depression on top of everything.
Anyways, I've heard people talking about B-5... is that "vitamin b-5" and "panothenic acid" (sorry don't know the spelling on that one)? It sounds like it works more than accutane, which I took 3 years ago.
: To add to my above response, I'm 23 and still hoping for the day I grow out of it. For those of us with the most serious problems that may never happen.
: I get really jealous of people with nice skin too. I like to look at this picture I have of myself when I was 14, before I ever went to a dermatologist, so I can see that I'm not perfect, but I don't look that bad anymore. You can email me if you want.
