Need help
Feb 25, 2003

I've had acne since I was 13 and I'm now 23.
I've tried so many different medications including Accutane, but I still have a problem with acne.
I mainly breakout on my chin and around my mouth.
Usually they are not just small pimples though, I get
large cystic acne that swells up.
I try to resist the urge to pop, but I usually end up doing it because they hurt so bad. Of course I only make them worse and I somehow end up peeling off skin too which then scabs over and looks horrible!!
Does anyone else have this happen?
I'm just not sure what to do right now as far as treatment. I've had 2 kids in the last couple years so medication has not been an option and I breastfeed.
I've been using neutrogena products which seem to work the best, but it's just not enough.
Are there any other OTC products that work?
Also I would like to go to a dermatologist but can't because my insurance doesn't cover dermatology.
I'm wondering if anyone knows if a regular physican can prescribe acne medications?

Thanks for any help you can give me!
