... lol thats pretty dumb over the counter stuff works for some people, you should try that stuff for awhile. If not, get some prescription stuff, which works for a lot of people too. If that doesnt work I'd try accutane. (17 replies)
... dont know what to say...ive been suffering from acne as long as your son has been alive. there is no cure. i would say see a derm but they are full of it. over the counter things dont work and are a waste of time. but i guess they do keep the acne down a little even though it doesnt stop it. the only thing that works, is accutane. but unfortunately its only temporary for...
