I am wondering if anyone has been afflicted with acne as an adult?
I skated through my teen years with a few bouts of acne here or there but nothing dreadful. I was about 19 or 20 when I really got acne!
I am on prescription medication that I use every morning and every evening. It is called Cleocin and I use the topical liquid version (I believe it comes in a gel too).
It has worked wonders. My skin looks great but if I run out/have to wait for a prescription for any reason, I start to get acne very quickly - within a few days.
I still get the odd bit of acne now and again, but without the medication I'm afraid I'd look like a dalmation! I drink plenty of water and my diet is pretty good (I indulge occasionally) so I guess this is a medication I will be on for life.
Does anyone else have adult onset acne? If so, how do you deal with it? Medication? Alternative methods? I'd love to hear!
