It takes a long time to help acne.  Ask your derm about adoxa its also a pill.  I had real bad acne and it work great on me.  You will still get some breakouts but they go away fast.  Use a face wash with benzoyle peroxide in it. You will find it at any store and in any face wash.  It will help. May dry out skin so only use a dime size twice a day.  As far as olil goes good luck it never goes away.

how old are you anyway?
if you're a  teenager, try tetraciclin, it fairly improves. before my face was like imflamable and kind of burning and i had a lot of acne seriously. the people were so scared of me everytime they saw me at school and they made fun of me. they even called me acne face but i didnt mind them.  i skipped school too  coz i was embarrased (but i dont take grudge on them and curse them, that's bad dude). i just pray that there was a miracle that wont criticize me anymore. my social and sexual liife ruined.  but when i use water every morning to wash my face and take 4 times of tettraciclin a day(continuosly), after 6 months my face is improving and got a lot better and clearer.  plus i work out everyother day  and drink sixteen glasses of water a day. i also jog 3 miles everyother day. i eat vegetables, avocado especially cucumber everyday . now my face is kind of whittish and rosy cheek. my handsome face went back. my gayfriend wanted to have sex with me and i dont want to  and my bestfriend who is a girl, she said if i was a guy, she would rape me. she said i am hot stud but i dont mind her. all i care is myself. but this is what i recommend you since i was kind of in similar situation to you.

remember this takes time(but it's gonna be a long journey) however this will pay off. just leave your face alone  and do what i said. oh one more thing, dont eat foods that is high in calories. check the ingredients too, if you think the food is oily, dont buy it, but eat fresh vegetables. i know it's hard but you'll get used to it.  eat fresh tomatoes too.

wait! one more thing, this is true!! dont jack off, the more sex thoughts u think while jacking off the more acne or pimples u get. i recommend you to watch cartoons or educational programs such on pbs (teletubbies, arthur, dragon tales, tom and jerry or geography channel). just think happy thoughts except sex!~

Hello everybody,
Should you try the product from www.paulaschoice.com, they have Beta hydroxy acid and Alpha hydroxy acid that are good for exfoliating, very good for acne treatment. Just try their sample and find out.
Best wishes.

acne is a skin problem which you can not treat iver night, if you happen to have acne, first and most imprortant step is to find topical product that can clear your skin and help to control acne. many products have chemicals so you need to avoid them because chemicals based acne products will do more harm than good to your skin. Try to find natutal acne products. if you want to clear your skin from acne over night, the Acne Zap natural lotion made by Ovante works pretty good on most severe and inflamed acne, if you have mild acne, you can use The ABC Acne and Blemish Control cream, both products are natural and can be used as long as needed in order to control acne.

I would stop taking all the medications you are using. They don't help and may cause problems with side effects. It is a sad truth that a large proportion of cystic acne cases cannot be cured. In fact, treatment can make it worse. Unfortunately I speak from experience. I was best off when I decided to do nothing at all. I went out of my way not to stimulate my face in any way at all - no soap, no sun, no facials, no massage, no ointments, no liquids, no antiseptics, no astringents - no nothing. Just bathed my face with lukewarm water and patted dry. No dermatologist will tell you your case is incurable. They would lose half their patients by being honest. And the pharmaceutical companies would weep bitter tears.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel. Dermabrasion. Goodbye scars. And you can even indulge in this treatment while your case is still active.
