Unhappy Adult Acne

Diagnosed about a month ago with adult acne. It was a real blow to me because my doctor said it usually progressively gets worse until you are 27 and i am only 21. Plus i had acne throughout adolesence and it went away around age 18 only to come back now. You just assume that if you have a few zits here and there it will just go away if you do the right things. My dermatologist didn't make me very optimistic. Starting birth control (yasmin) tomorrow, i'm crossing my fingers.....

Yes, adult acne definately sucks--I'm 32. I am much better now, and grateful for it, but for 2 and a half years it was rough.

Usually, the people whom get adult acne had it when they were younger--they don't know why. Also, women get it more frequently than men--probably hormones. It is also more difficult to get under control.

Are you using topicals in addition to BCP?

Good Luck,

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to keep you happy.
