I've had Acne
since 8th grade so I guess I was 14. It started off just on my nose, but the ones that were there were big. Then by the end of the year the Acne
started spreading onto other parts of my face. My nose has always beeen a place where the Acne
seems to be attrated which caused some acne scarring on my nose. Freshman year I my acne started getting worse but it never exploded all over my face. I never got a bunch of acne all over my face, what I did have were big pimples, a few big pimples.
I started using some alcohol based treatment that I bought at the mall and it burned so I stopped using it. Then I broke out on the middle of my chest with big pimples that ended up leaving rolling scars in a about 3 in by 2 in area on the middle of my chest. My acne didn't really quit during these treatments so I went to the derm. People on the internet from places like acne.org didn't reccomend to go to the derm because of the lack of help that they were, but i went anyway. They were right. . . the derm gave me pills and retin-a which didn't help at all.
Then I went on Pro-active which seemed to help but then again my acne was persistant.
Now. . . this year I started Dan's Regimen on acne.org which revolves around the use of Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne. I bought Dan's own BP Gel and have been treating my acne. I get the occasional breakout maybe once a week or once every 2 weeks. That is, until now.
I think that this is weird, my arms have been slightly breaking out. I got freaked out because the area below my belly button has also been breaking out. Not huge breakouts but I had 2 big pimples. So I'm thinking is my acne getting worse???!?
Now I am honestly desperate to find a cure to the acne and the natural approach makes a lot of sense to me. I didn't mention that I went to a "naturalist" an herb lady she uses the products off www.naturessunshine.com. She told me that it was the toxins in my body that were causing me to have acne and that I should change my diet and take the natural pills she gave me. They did work and my acne got better but her pills were expensive so I stopped.
I KNOW IT'S BEEN A LONG POST SORRY.
Well, now I want to try the liver flushing, parasite
cleansing, bowel cleansing, and kidney flushing. I want to try this because it makes sense but I want your opinion on where I should start. Right now I'm 17 and am going to be a freshman in college. I have become very self-concious because of my acne and acne scarring. I remember that when i was younger all i would drink was milk so I don't know if that could have affected me. So how should i start? What do you think?? My acne now isn't severe, although the derm said that if my acne caused acne scarring then it was considered severe. I dunno. I don't have a lot of pimples on my face, maybe three at the most. Well what do you think??? Help me please.
SORRY ABOUT THE LONG POST BUT IT'S MY FIRST ONE
