Acne at 59 years old

I have had acne on my back and face since I was 13 years old. Suffered all my life with little let up . Some improvement with antibiotics but as have taken these on and off for so long they now do not have much effect. Have tried cream on my face from doctors. Skin very oily even at my age. Really don’t know what else to try. Advice would be very welcome.

Dear Jane,

I am so sorry to hear about yur acne! I think you should see a dermatologist and ask for Roacutane treatment. You can read more about this treatment on my website.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
