Hi moms. I am 27 years old and I have adult acne. Its pretty bad and the acne gets big and painful like cysts and the acne that does go away leaves dark blemishes. I have tried every product and avoid any wash that might irritate might skin. I also use aveeno blemish cleanser, a lightening cream to lighten dark spots and even a precribed medication called Tretenoin cream that is specifically for acne. I wash my face 2x/day.
I'm very desperate as I have had acne since I was 19 and nothing seems to clear it! I like my face but hate my acne! It makes me feel so ugly sometimes.
I asked my doctor for an antibiotic I don't remember the name but it was a pill.
