    Feel your pain, I've had acne since I was 15/16 - the cystic kind too which is even worse. The only thing that's really worked for me is a combination of omega 3 tablets (I take flaxseed oil ones because I'm a veggie too) and cutting out sugar from my diet. No white bread or pasta, no flavoured yoghurt, no fruit juice, the whole shebang. It sounds extreme but it's made such a difference to my skin.
    I've tried antibiotics, but they came with really unpleasant side effects, and benzol peroxide - which does work, but isn't something I fancy using long term.

    Are you sure you were on isotretinoin, because if not you should go on it as it worked wonders for me.

    Diet and stress have never been proven to cause acne, but some people say that eating too much refined carbs worsens acne as it rapidly increases blood glucose or some ****.
    This stuff is probably true. When I eat a lot of sugary stuff like ice cream and chocolate I get worse acne.

    Ice cream is probably very bad for acne because it is a diary product, and diary products are full of hormones.
