How long does acne last?

How long does this disease last for the majority of people? I'm 16 and have moderate acne i think, my doctor says its mild-moderate. Im male too. When will this stuff end on the average. I dont have it really bad but bad enough to **** me off alot. Thanks.

That's kind of a "how long is a piece of string" question. It's really different for everyone. Me, about 13 years.

Re: How long does acne last?

Really depends on what type of acne you have also. Hormonal acne which is usually present in a lot of teenagers should go away by the time puberty sperts stop. Which is another one of those questions that depending on the individual, varying from person to person. Most people only get acne during their teen years. Some people don't even get acne. While there are some people who have acne past their fourties.

You shouldn't be asking how long acne usually lasts because the answer will always be different. You should be asking, 'how do I get rid of acne?' instead. <IMG SRC="">

There really is no exact method of estimating, since everyone is different. The piece of string method is exactly right. Impossible to tell for sure. I know people who never had acne, and others like myself that had it for over 25 years! It can be caused by too many things, hormonal, food, stress, sickness etc.
To try and control it, don't eat fatty foods or low quality junk food, increase your water intake by 100%, eat natural foods fresh fruit and veggies (skins off) , supplement with 50 mg natural Zinc, and scrub with Cetaphyl with some baking soda after breakfast.
Rinse with very warm water for about 10 seconds, scrub with the Cetaphyl, dip your fingers in baking soda and scrub for 30 seconds. Rinse off with warm, and then flush with cold water for about 10 seconds.
After dinner, or after lunch use the Cetaphyl ONLY.
Good luck.
