friggen weird acne? (help?)
« on: September 24, 2014, 10:57:18 pm »
I NEVER had acne until June of this year and it has been getting progressively worse. The acne is abundant, angry, red, huge and all over my jawline, neck, and chin (and sometimes my cheeks). I've just turned 20, and it seems a little late for this to be happening. I had my hormone levels checked within this year too, and they didn't find any abnormalities, so no PCOS.

I'm not obese. If anything, I've lost weight since the beginning of the summer (though not a significant amount). My BMI is 18.5 right now, so I'm not even close to over weight. My voice hasn't gotten low and I haven't grown any facial hair (I wish). I'm taking the same medications I've taken since I was 14. I'm not losing hair and my period is irritatingly regular. I'm a vegetarian and I don't drink soda or any sugary drinks. I drink about a dozen tall glasses of ice water a day because I like feeling cleansed. I can't think of anything that has been irritating the skin there. I've got short hair and I don't wear helmets or anything. I wash my face every day and I don't smoke.

I'm pre-T, so this is a bit puzzling. It's not just a once a month thing either. The acne has been persistent and I'm getting huge scars even though I haven't been touching it.

What is up with my skin right now? Help?!
