Hi people- I’m nearly 21 and had acne on and off (controlled with healthy eating etc) for a few years, then a few months ago it was really clearing up.
Had been getting bad lately as I for a number of weeks I have been v stressed/anxious (got big exams coming up + lots of coursework)- I was feeing most of the time like I was gonna have a panic attack. Don’t know why I normally I’m fine with exams, but these are big ones- finals.
So I went to Dr and was prescribed some antidepressants. Have only been on ’em 2 days, feel great, am sleeping so much better and acne is clearing up rapidly again. I plan to come of em once exams are over and I don’t have this anxiety, as I don’t feel it’s good to rely on drugs.
Try looking at your state of mind as it may be doing a lot of harm to the skin.
