    Right, I'm 14 years old and suffering from mild acne. I got it when I was 12 years old. I have tried a number of different prescriptions from my doctor such as face washes and tablets and none of them have worked... Can anyone please give me any advice on how to get rid of my spots as it makes me really self-conscious and I don't even like going out of the house... Is Accutane available in the UK, if so how would I get it??

    Toothpaste works by drawing out the spots. Apply a thin layer over the spots, and leave for a short while. Wash off. Should also clear your pores and therefore means you're less likely to get spots.

    tooth paste leaves marks and can sometimes leave your skin burning when you apply it .

    Really iits just a case of going to your gp and trying different things.

    Accutane can be quite fierce. You cna get it through your GP.

    have you asked him to refer you to a dermatologist?

    No, I haven't asked my GP to refer me to a dermatologist, but i am going to the clinic tomorrow as my medication has ran out and he is going to be checking the progress in my skin, so i shall ask about it then. Thanks.

    My friend had severe acne, I had moderate/mild acne and tried literally everything. I brought so many products it was unbelievable. The thing that worked for both of us and made our acne completely clear in 2/3 months , was cutting out white carbs, dairy, sugar and chocolate, I also take the birth control pill, which is known for clearing acne. No joke my skin is clear now!
