My daughter has had acne since she was 7 and we have tried everything from Dermatologists and doctors giving her antibiotics. The Dermatologists gave her topical creams that burnt her skin and really didn't seem to do anything for her on the NHS. She stopped going about 18 months ago. We went to a beautician who cleansed her skin and gave us expensive cleansers but that didn't work and only marked her skin. Now we just cleans with on the shelf cleansers morning and night. Her face is covered with small spots which erupt ,but mainly dark black heads on her lips and her nose developing large blackheads. She has them in her ears. Her shoulders are sore with red spots, which erupt. I really don't know how to help her or what treatment she needs now. Going into secondary school and puberty spots are expected but she does have a lot for her age. If we can find the right treatment it will help her cope as she is getting very depressed about them. Please can someone help
