Re: acne

I tried all sorts over the years. The best book I have read on the subject is 'Healing Adult Acne' by Richard G Fried MD. I really wish I could have read this book when I was suffering with severe acne in my teens and 20s. It would have

Re: adult acne

Re: PYSCHOLOGICAL IMPACT OF SKIN CONDITIONS RESEARCH

I am 61 years old and still suffering from the damaging psychological affects of having severe acne for years. Although my acne has cleared up (with Roaccutane) I am left with scars. I was left with a scar on my left cheek which I was advised (by a dermatologist) to have treated with a facial filler...

Re: How to beat acne

Although I agree that a healthy lifestyle helps with any medical condition, I take exception to those who seem to think its just a case of following the right diet, etc to cure this condition.
