  • If its really bad accutane is the most effective acne medicine. Its a very strong derivitive of vitamin A. It causes birth defects so you must be on birth control and take a pregnancy test in order to get an Rx. It can put stress on the liver and monthly blood test are required to make sure your not experiencing adverse effect. Aside from that its awesome and completely changes your skin. Google accutane journals for a better idea.

  • Have you tried ProActiv? I hear that is really good. The only other thing I can suggest is for you to see a Dermatologist. We also have a place in our town called Healing Rays. They claim to help people with Psoriasis and Acne. They use Phototherapy... whatever that is. You might try googling that and see what you think.

  • I used the Tea Tree body bar. It will dry ur skin a little but it really worked for me.
