Acne board


I have had acne pretty bad on my chest and back for the past 2 years. I am 18 now and a Freshman in college. I have tried everything to fix it including: tetracycline, doxycycline, BP, benzaclin, retin-A and many more. I have also quit eating sugar and taking lots of Vits for about a week with results on my face but not on my back and chest. I have been avoiding accutane due to the side effects suck as liver damage and i even heard it can cause you not to be able to wear contacts (which i have).

The point is, I am tired with acne and need a solution, should I try it? How did accutane work in ya'lls cases?

And if anyone who reads this is on the low sugar diet, how long will it take to cure someone with severe acne on the chest and back?
