I've gone over the limit with my face. I'm so obsessed with my face and trying to make it clear. I'm a Junior in High School and sadly I wear makeup to try and cover up my scars. I am a male and have gone through products such as Retin-A, Pro-Activ, and Tazorac. All these helped for a while but I kept picking my pimples and scars so it all went to waste. My parents refuse to go to a derm. to get acne medicine because I always end up picking my face and making it worse. I actually get tweezers to pick the side skin that stick out so that the make-up I wear doesn't make it so the skin sticks out (obvious). I try to leave it alone and not wear makeup but the lack of confidence I have in myself in public makes it impossible for me not to wear and pick my face. I have so many scars on my face that it looks like I was burned in the past. My only hope is getting acne medicine or other things (lemon, aloe vera?) from local stores. If any of you have any solutions or suggestions...please reply.

The only thing I can recommend is that you get to a dermatologist anyway you can. I understand that your parents are upset with your picking, but that is certainly no reason to withhold treatment. Also, please stop picking.
