Help prevent oil build up:
I am doing everything I can but I still have bad spots, what do I do now?
See your GP they can be really helpful in helping to treat your spots and in stopping them scarring you.
Your GP can prescribe treatments such as antibiotic gels or antibiotic tablets that you take every day that can really clear your spots up.
If your acne is really quite bad and is causing scarring your GP can arrange for you to see a dermatologist (skin doctor) who can give you stronger treatments such as roaccutane (a very strong gel for acne). This can be brilliant for settling down severe acne and for stopping the spots scarring you.
The Good News!
For most people acne goes away completely by the time they are out of their teens.
If spots are bothering don’t hide away ask your local doctor for help.
