I'm 20 years old and I live in a high humidity country. Since I was 13 years I always remember having an oily skin with the usual pustule on my forehead. I though that it was a common reaction when you're growing up. Now that I'm 20 years, my skin condition seems that it's getting worse. I get pustules and papules on my cheek area especially on one particular side of my face and on my jawline. As I just finished my Aesthetics course, I learned that the cheek area give an accurate glimpse into any respiratory distress while the jawline reflects the state of your teeth and gums. Could it be that I have an internal problem?
It's also true that recently I was a bit stressed, which reflects my skin condition. I clean my face morning and evening and I use products on my face that contain Australian Tea Tree oil and saliclic acid. I've been using these products since February. I was thinking to visit a Dermalogist but I'm a bit scarred that he might prescribe pills that might have side effects or very harsh products. What do you suggest me to do? I'm really concious about my condition and it's really stressing me out which as a result makes my condition worse.
