Ive had acne since grade 6. Ive tried everything possible. Anti biotics, oxy, clearsil,all of the major acne treatments. Nothing works, and 99% of them dry out my skin and make it peal.

Help? What can I do? Grade 10 now, had it for 4 years, help

Have you seen a dermatalogist? There are presciption medicines that only the Dr. Can subscribe. Are you too young to take acutane? Also, there's a sulfur sulcadimate (spelling?) product that might work (also by prescription)

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Take oral isotretinion as you have resistant acnes. Avoid soaps or towel on face. I would suggest you to have fasting blood sugar and thyroid function tests as well.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
