cyclone - wow I can really relate to you.. I'm 30 and have had acne for about 17 years. It seems to be a constant battle. I too have had moderate acne throughout the 17 years and have also been on accutane 3 times. I have been there with not wanting to look people in the eye for fear that I might catch them looking at my acne. It is horrible. I wish I had the magic pill for you.. I guess if I did, I would have taken it myself. I was married for 4 years but am now divorced. Honestly, I blame acne for my divorce. I know that sounds stupid, but it's true. There were times when my acne was so bad that I wouldn't even want to go to family functions. This was really hard on my ex-wife because she is so close to her family. Eventually, she got tired of me and found someone else. I can't blame her. I never really told her how much acne bothered me, so she thought I was just lazy and anti-social.

Anyway, it sounds like you're being a little harsh on your skin. Pan Oxyl is a very drying product. I've tried it before and it caused me to break out worse. Try washing with Cetaphil without water and using only BP at night. It has been working pretty good for me. Also, the past few days I've been taking a multi-vitamin along with 50 mg of Zinc and haven't had one new pimple since.

I hope things improve. Hang in there buddy.
