I am now in my 60's and still suffer with acne regularly sometimes the spots are large and solid lumps. I have always cleaned and toned my skin but nothing makes them go away. I am guessing that at my age I am not going to grow out of this condition now. is there anything that I can do? It is even more embarrassing now than it was when I was in my teens.

I am sorry to hear about your acne. Consult your GP or dermatologist they can give you an antibiotic, Epiduo or DUAC gel and Roacutane.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
