Hi there XXXXXXX.

I hear your problem & note your age. At this age, i am always of the opinion the primary problem ie acne should be addressed before one tackles the acne. This may be done by a variety of ways but for each, one has to be initially assessed in person or if you like, you may post a good clear photograph/photographs from different angles in natural light & let's take it from there. I work @ the XXXXXXX Hospital & you are welcome to come across or if you like, i could recommend a dermatologist nearest you for convenience. Best regds.

Hi there.
Saw your photograph.
You will be best off with systemic isotretinoin therapy
This requires a prescription & preliminary blood tests
Please let me know where you stay & can direct you accordingly.
