Hi there.

I note your problem & assure you that acne is a disease that quite a few adolescents your age suffer form & it will get better in due course.

Having said that, the treatment varies from individual to individual & depends on the 'type' of acne & the 'severity' & also on the cost factor of medications & the side effects.

For best results, it will be great if you could upload a couple of good digital photographs of the face & affected areas on this web-site using the 'upload data' on the right side of your screen. Should you require discretion, please feel free to get in touch with me on the private 'ask-a-doctor' portal & you may look me up.

In the interim, you may attempt to use a topical adapalene based gel on the region but do go meet your dermatologist & for optimal results & should it be required to start a drug called isotretinoin, then you will have to do a few baseline laboratory tests & will have to have all the various treatment options explained to you at the outset.

Do not worrry though. Dermatology is now far advanced & we have a range of arrows in our quiver to try & deliver optimal results & satisfaction but like i said at the outset, this will have to be tailor made for a particular patient & for best results, we require at least a visual.

Good Luck & hope to hear from you soon...cheers!
