Not long, but I am on a cable connection.

That's a long of acne young man! I'm not sure what you do about the pitting. I am going to try a microderm abrassion home thing (endorsed by Susan Lucci, so it must be good--I watched the infomercial and HAD to order it). I have some uneven color (my husband says it's normal ) and large pores...it has a money back guarantee.

Something like that needs to be treated from the inside out.
Home remedies at this point might not cut it

I had HORRIBLE acne on my back and it took prescription face wash and pills to get rid of it. You definatly need to see a dermetologist if you want that to clear up. Maybe something like Acutane (sp?)

Took about 5 seconds to load.

Ouch, that is some intense acne, but you never know...I had a friend in high school that had acne so badly that along with the redness and surface lesions, he had lumps that looked like he had grapes implanted under hois skin....I saw him two years after grad and all traces of his acne (except for some minor scarring) had vanished...all on its own.

accutane wont help me now, its just redness and scarring. accutane causes redness and scarring

if you don't have any more acne, and it is just scarring and redness, then I'd suggest vitamine E. You can get it in a pill form or liquid that is applied directly to the area. It helps skin heal amazingly fast and with less scarring.

I'd see a dermatologist, too. There are lots of effective treatments.
