Depressed due to my body acne, amongst other things.

Postby MrFreedom on Sun Feb 10, 2019 11:38 pm

I am a 41 year old man that has been dealing with body acne and scarring on my neck, back, shoulders, chest and bottom since I was a teenager. I can't seem to get any solution that works for me. I have been severely depressed over this and I am kinda at my wits' end. Can anyone offer some advice.

Btw, this is one of several body image problems I have been dealing with, for the sake of brevity and keeping it on topic I will focus on the acne issue. Thanks in advance.

It's not clear from your question if you actually visited dermatologist, or tried only with OTC products.
Generally, you cannot clear severe acne with acne treatment that you buy at the store. To see clearing, you either have to wait it out or see a dermatologist. Waiting out severe acne can take years, and you have waited, so' it's time for a visit to specialized person. Often the first treatment recommended for severe acne will be antibiotics + medicine you apply to the acne.

Then, you should consult a good doctor for this.

You need to see a good Dermatologist who can examine you professionally and if you do not want to go to the hospital so you can use telemedicine for this purpose. Eg: I heard about Marham.pk they have a good telemedicine platform.

Hope you will be fine soon. :)

Thank You.

Don't be depressed because it is curable. You just need a Dermatologist which can help you.
