Question!! I have had allot of skin issues my whole life. Including adult acne, ppl think I'm on something cuz I break out horribly and it's painful. I have scars everywhere including the indention scars. I get acne in my scalp, tried washing more or washing less and makes no difference. Idk how much $ I spent on treatments and Drs put me on antibiotics, I'm slowly having allergic hives from ALL antibiotics, assuming since I been on them since 3rd grade allot. MRSA is on and off have multiple proof of those. Random rashes and hives from seemingly NOTHING. itch allot. Always have had something going on w my skin. IS this part of HEDS symptoms? Shud I be seeing a dermatologist? I have tags popping up in random places and cherries at 42 yrs. I have a spot on my chest if I accidently scratch it it will bleed. looks like a tiny scar from an old pimple. had it a few years now. Acne has been last on my worry list but boy it'll b great if I cud get some relief from it and ppl didn't assume I'm a druggie.

      I used to get these too!! For over like two decades… all over my body, head, back, chest, arms, legs, butt, some places worse than others. All testing was useless tbh… biopsies revealed anything from yeast to bacteria. I finally got talked into going on Accutane even though it wasn’t technically acne my provider felt that it might benefit me since all other drugs and treatments failed or made it worse. Low and behold, this is the first time in over two decades that I have completely clear skin. Accutane is an Extremely strong and dangerous drug though and you do have to see a dermatologist and have monthly check-in’s and if you are a female you also have to have monthly pregnancy tests completed Etc. I’m not 100% sure it was actually the medicine or something else going on but, my experience using Accutane was not completely horrible and it truly seemed to work wonders. It does have extreme side effects though that your provider will have to discuss with you. Best of luck!
