Anyone have any suggestions for my fourteen year old? She is adopted and her birthmother warned me that she had TERRIBLE acne that lasted into adulthood and that N's birthfather also had trouble with acne. We're trying to be proactive, but N is breaking out and is starting to get very upset over it. We have the topical medications. She was prescribed tetracycline twice a day, but due to it being summer and her weird sleeping hours, she and I keep forgetting it and my oldest daughter, who also has had a real battle with acne, said that didn't help her (I don't remember...we tried so hard for her and nothing worked). My older daughter does think a low dose of the birth control pill helps. I'm "iffy" on asking about that because of the health risks (I don't believe it will make t his particulr daughter feel like she can be sexually active...she's not into that at all right now). Anyone have any suggestions for Miss Fourteen? She spends a lot of time doing over-the-counter stuff to her face. Thanks in advance!
