Hi all. I am brand new so I just wanted to start off by saying hello :)

Long story short, I've had acne since I started going through puberty (age 11). I have been to almost every dermatologist in my area and have been on antibiotics and every prescription cream you can think of. I've also been on birth control pills for a while, and the pills actually CLEARED my acne completely for about a year and a half... But now it's back with a vengeance. I am a female, I just turned 24, and I'm losing my mind. Like I said, I've always had acne, but I really don't ever remember it looking like it does now.

I have huge, HUGE pimples on my chin and near my mouth and jawline. And when I say huge, I mean huge. They don't even resemble pimples, they look more like boils. They do not look normal and sometimes they get so swollen they almost look disfiguring. I'll get some smaller pimples on other areas of my face, but my chin, mouth and jawline is really taking a beating. I've had my hormones tested multiple times and everything is ok. I know there are worse things in the world than acne, but jeez come on! I'm 24!

If anyone has a similar story to like, please share! And pleeeease share if anyone has any advice :/ I have an appointment with my derm next week but I doubt he'll be able to help.

Thanks everyone!
