Acne

I have had acne since age 16 and am currently 33.I thought it was to disappear with age but it is not going anywhere.I have been to dermatologists am sick of taking pills and applying various creams. Is there a permanent solution beside Roacutane which is also approved by medical aid?

Hallo penny pusher
Roaccutane (or the generics) usually work very well, and if you are female, you can try hormone medication like Diane. See http://www.aad.org/public/publications/pamphlets/common_acne.html
