When I was 16 I started the depo, birth control shot. It caused me to start breaking out on my face, so I switched to the pill. I got pregnant and it got worse and has never gone away after 8 years. I use washes and nothing seems to work. Even when Im not stressed, it still seems to be there. Proactive didnt work on me; my complection used to be flawless and beautiful- its not absolutely disgusting, but I cant stand to look at myself. Please help me, what can I do?

HI and thanks for using the forum.

You need to see a dermatologist.  He or she can help determine the cause of your acne and can offer possible solutions.  There are medications that can help treat and prevent the acne.  Some washes can actually irritate your already sensitive skin and make the acne worse.  Good luck.
