First and formeost, consider this a gift from God! Acne tears pride away, produces humbleness, and helped me draw closer to God.
When I was younger, I had moderate to severe acne. Herbal remedies, food, and diets won't do much to help relieve your skin problems (WebMD
). It really depends on how bad you are having acne problems, a couple zits a week is normal and you should feel relieved..
Anyhow, you should go to a dermatologist.
Since you have skin problems they will probably put you on an anti-biotic. Most likely doxycycline, cephalexin, minocycline, etc. Anti-biotics are iffy, but I hear they work well for some people.
I am curious as to why your face is very sensitive? This will cause problems because you need to be using a face wash a couple of times a day. Cetaphil's gentle face wash cleaner is good for people with sensitive skin, but I am a fan of Proactiv or Neutrogena's Acne face wash. If you can't handle Proactiv you probably can't handle Neutrogena. Make sure you're using lotion if your face is having problems.
When I went to the dermatologist it went like this for me:
1) Doxycycline with Differin creme: Didn't help.
2) Cephalexin: Helped a little
3) Minocycline: Didn't help
4) Accutane: Slayed everything, got rid of cystic (the big honkers) zits, but also caused problems with my patellar ligaments.
5) Currently: Proactiv with Cephalexin. Does a good job, get a couple zits a week.
I didn't use Cetaphil's face wash because I felt it was too weak. It was very gentle. Until I went on Accutane, I used Neutrogena's Acne Face Wash. Accutane causes extreme drying so I had to abandon a face wash completely. I highly recommend Cetaphil's lotion (the one in the green bottle). It works good and doesn't leave oil or clog pores.
God Bless you, and cheer up! Don't let Satan exploit this!
