Hi ive had quite severe acne for about 4 years since I was 13 and ive tried so much different stuff for it like every type of antibiotic (apart from some really strong thing called roaccutane which the dermatologist said is the only thing left to try really) im on the pill now which has helped abit but ive still got it bad and its supposed to work completely after 3 months (ive been on it for about 5 months)…

Anyways ive noticed (and I hadn’t really thought about it before) that it’s a really weird type of acne ive never seen anyone else’s like it. I have a lot of actual spots but mostly my skin just looks really really red, infected and inflamed around my affected areas (whole of my chin, around my nose and a bit of my forehead). Like I cant really see actual spots its just like my pores look so blocked and seriously I mean my skin is really really inflamed and disgusting (its especially really really bad on my chin and ive had it for as long as I can remember). Ive just never seen any other people have acne like this because most people just have loads of obvious spots but I think mine looks worse, and not only that I just think its really weird. Like is it some weird form of acne? Does anyone know if this is normal?

I read something about acne rosacea which it could be...although it said that teenagers don’t really get this? But seeing as none of the normal acne stuff has worked I don’t know? But ive been to a dermatologist who has never said anything about acne rosacea although maybe coz it’s not expected to be in teenagers? Coz what ive read about acne rosacea it sounds like it could be?

And my skin really really really gets me down, it’s the only thing that ever gets me down now because im so self conscious and I would be pretty if only my skin was clear and it’s really really not fair. Nobody actually understands just how much it gets me down, they keep saying to forget about it and not let it stop me enjoying my life but I can’t because it’s all I think about. I would be so so so so much happier if my skin cleared up I really mean that. I rarely wear makeup but when I do, it’s the only time I feel confident and I really really really want my skin to clear up. I don’t know what else to try or do. Please help. x
