After reading everyones posts I feel like I want to cry. My skin was also covered in acne and I did not want to leave the house. I would avoid mirrors and cry a lot. It brought on a depression that I would try to hide from my family and friends. Acne can be so saddening. One day I went to my dermatologist to find something, anything to help my skin. I had been on accutane twice without any success. My derm suggested doing a two step treatment. It consisted of a topical treatment called levulan that he would apply on my face and then I would wait about 40 minutes with it on and then he had me sit with eye goggles on staring into a blue light. It looked like a mini tanning bed for the face. It's called the Blu-u light. Somehow the combination takes away acne. I did a series of four treatments at 2 week intervals. After the treatment your face looks a little sunburned and that goes away within a few days. It can cost about $350 per treatment, but my insurance covered most of it. It cleared up my skin and that was about a year ago. I recently started to break out a little bit again and a friend told me that if he doesn't take 300mg of acidophilus a day he starts to break out really bad. So I have been taking the acidophilus for almost a month now and my skin looks great! Make sure to keep the acidophilus in the fridge to keep it fresh. My suggestion is to try the acidophilus first(give it at least a month to see results), and if that doesn't work find a derm who does the levulan and blue light combo. Good luck to all of you! I've been there too and I know exactly how you all feel.
Well reading these posts made me feel a lot better. Its very strange but I probably have the worst acne scars of anyone here. They are severe. And Frankly it is an advantage for me in what I do.

Of course I am ready to kill anyone at anytime, and not feel a speck of remorse, due to this condition. But it really allows you to see people for what they truly are, wich is cattle in my mind. Or maybe that is giving them a little to much credit. People are literally, absolutely worthless, and any human life is worth no more then a cockroach.

I have millions of dollars in the bank. I can relate to the kid who does the Xtsy. He probably would have no friends if he didn't do drugs. Personally, I don't do drugs, therefore I have no friends, because I have acne scars. So think about it, I have milliones of dollars, yet no real friends. What does that tell you about people? I even have a hard time getting women to use me for my money, wich is really the only thing that keeps me going. There is nothing like taking a women home, having sex with her, and then telling her to "now get the -uck out of my house, NOW, you nasty little *****, I just used you". (these women are thinking they just landed a sugar daddy, and then WHAM, they are out the door LOL)

So this is what I am faced with. No friends, no women EVER in my life wanted me for anything but my money. And I am talking about 10 years of trying to find a women. But Jesus Christ, why couldn't I just have taken accutane when I was 13?

ACCUTANE WILL CURE ANY ACNE, NO MATTER HOW SEVERE. The side effects can be severe. SO WHAT? Does it cause depression? No, the acne causes depression. Having acne scars as an adult is 1000X worse then having acne even severe acne as a teen. Because when you face that point were you realize your face is going to look like this forever, you really are ready to die at that point. Its probably the most unattractive thing there is on a person.

If you have scars, you will need to use collagen injections, and spare no expense. To get ride of them, it will cost around 3-4K every 4 months. If that is a problem for you, you just don't want to get ride of them bad enouph.

IF YOU DO NOT GET RIDE OF THEM, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE A LIFE WORTH LIVING, SO SPARE NO EXPENSE.

AND IF YOU HAVE ACNE, ACCUTANE IS THE ONLY CURE. SO WHAT IF THE SIDE EFFECTS KILL YOU, IF YOU DON'T GET RIDE OF THE ACNE YOU ARE BETTER OF DEAD ANYWAY. (preventing scarring is the #1 priority in your life! Trust me!)

But if you are a martial artist, or a businessman, having this problem will make you so ruthless that its really an advantage!!!
