My daughter of 15 suffers from acne. Sometimes the inflammation is severe, red and swollen. Our doctor prescribed a medicinal shampoo and zinc supplement, which did not help much. Our chemist gave her a facial massage, which alleviated the inflammation, but it was also only temporary. I mainatin that in this modern day and age a teenager should not suffer from acne and surely there is a treatment that could spare her the embarrasment and discomfort.

Grysoog, Roaccutane® is “the mother of all” acne treatments and if it’s severe enough, she should use it. The best would be to see a dermatologist and have it sorted out. Good luck.

What about roacutain(not sure about spelling)??I know of people who once on this drug have clear, beautiful skin, however there are side effects..ask your doctor.

There is also a product called 'cellskin', this is excellent for inflammation, acne and scars...apart from other things like wrinkles and stretch marks. It is an American product you can only get through a consultant; if you would like to know more enquire at, this lady is a consultant, you can tell her Kate gave you the info.
