Remedies for sever acne?

I don't have insurance so I can't go into the dermatologist so I've been living like this for awhile and I'm tired of thinking about it everyday. It's not just little pimples and whiteheads, it's more the deep kind that really hurt. Is there anything I can do from home?

  • first, stop touching your face with your hands.. the oil from you hands and face don't mix at all. wash your face like you brush your teeth.. and make sure to put on lotion at night before bed.

  • You might try an acne system. I use AcneFree, and it works very well for me. It's not quite as expensive as ProActiv, and you can buy it in stores.

  • ProActive works for some.

    Eliminating dairy from your diet may help.
