Hello, This is my first time on your website. A friend told me you guys really help :D can I ask you a few questions?

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

Adult acne :( and a scar from a recent surgery I'm 26 from Egypt and I tried almost everything so ..now I'm trying to check if natural oils can help

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Tea tree oil and patchouli were recommended by a friend but I don't know how to use them

I am not allergic to anything, I do live in the city in a house full of smokers so it's pretty polluted around me. Growing up I never experienced acne like this ever. had a few pimples that went away very fast but lately .. it's been a year now i'm getting super-size acne on my cheeks and chin. sometimes i get a cystic one. tried most topical acne treatments available and nothing works. They will help reduce the redness and the white head but i still have scars and red pimples that may not pop on the skin but are hard under the skin when i touch it. Please help

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
