In terms of how to topically treat black skin there are definitely some differences. Like you I have been through that list of treatment options you mentioned and more. I have acne any and every where. If a pimple shows up on one shoulder, it has a twin on the other. I have severe scarring on my back/arms/chest. The lazer treatment options are supposedly too risky for our complexion as are the chemical peels. I have tried microdermabrasion - waste of my money. Too bad Diane-35 did not work for you. I used it for several years until it lost its effect. Generally however all antibiotics and hormone regulators lose their effectiveness if the dosage is not increased. I have dumped the minocin my derma just gave me and am trying a natural approach. A whole body cleanse. Sadly I ate so much fried food this weekend and its showing up on my face. I am also doing a chemical peel (with my fingers crossed) and the cutan' oil I use(a drying oil skin prep.) keeps me from breaking out everywhere else. I assume thats why my face is rebelling. I usually don't breakout on my face. The cutan 'oil is a product by Nelly Devyrst. I have also been using HQRA- a combination of retin-a and hydroquinone.

Sorry for rambling...we've all got a long story to tell huh?
