Does anyone know?

Does anyone know the term for extreme acne? I'm trying to look up info and can't think of it. Does anyone know how to calm down excess/overactive sebatious glands so that it helps bad acne? Not topically, nothing is helping that way.

  • Try a low fat vegan diet for a while; one based strictly on whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables.

  • I dont know a name. Just know that there is boils, blackheads, whiteheads, scars and ohters. One thing that helps my severe acne is to WASH MY FACE AT BEDTIME. The one day I forget, its back to normal. Also if I touch my face a lot, it makes it worse. I use Apricot Scrub (lightly). Witchhazel is a good toner. Aveeno face moisterizer is not greasy. This is my routine. Tropicals never worked for me too harsh.BE gentle to your skin.
