I have never had any major problems with acne on my face. Of course, there were changes, but I would describe their intensity as medium. Unfortunately, I've always had a bigger problem with subcutaneous acne - I mean the subcutaneous lumps that make my face appear rough. It's very hard to squeeze them out, and of course I try not to do so. For some time now, this problem has worsened - I had most of these changes on my forehead, and now they have spread to almost the entire face, mainly around the cheeks and jaw. In addition, I am much more likely to pop up single, large pimples from the so-called. root - they are very painful. I am 25 years old and I am very surprised that the problem of acne, instead of disappearing, is increasing. I would like to point out that I have been to a few dermatologists and unfortunately no Benzacne or Skinoren ointments help. I try to deal with major changes in a natural way using, for example, tea tree oil, but nothing works for subcutaneous acne. I am asking for advice, maybe it can be cured by some natural means? I would also like to point out that recently I ate a lot of ketchup and sweets - maybe my face condition worsened due to poor nutrition? I will be very grateful for any information.

According to your description, your acne lesions are very intense. In this case, oral therapy is necessary.

After the medical examination and laboratory tests, the dermatologist will be able to make a decision about the choice of the preparation.

As for diet, it has not yet been proven to have a significant influence on the development of acne.
