help with cystic acne/ ingrown hairs
I have been battling (what i thought was just ingrown hairs, but turned out to be what i think is cystic acne and ingrown hairs) for about 3 years now. The cystic acne and ingrown hairs is always present on my face and during the winter months seems to get worse on my chest and back. I have tried anything and everything you can think of to try and prevent and cure this. Hundreds of different over the counter products (i have spent $1,000s on trying to cure these). For the ingrown hairs I have tried shaving at night, shaving in the morning, disposable razor, electric razor, wet/dry razor (during shower/after shower/opposite time of day of shower) tried shaving with warm water/cold water, tried different kinds of shaving creams and gels. I am also taking Doxycycline as of now for other reasons than acne. It seemed to help acne for a couple weeks about a month into taking it, but now doesnt seem to help at all. Nothing I try has been working, if someone could PLEASE PLEASE help me..I would GREATLY appreciate it!
