Hi all, my 13 year old daughter has developed acne within the last year (after starting her period) and is now very self conscious about breakouts on her chest and shoulders/back. She's always been very modest in her style of dress, but now is much more so because of this. We have tried to treat with face washes and lotions etc made for teenage acne, but nothing seems to work. I'm sure a lot of it is stress-related (school, friends, etc.), but other than taking her to a dermatologist, I'm not sure what to do next. Any ideas that we can try before making an appointment? Thank you!
