Zora, I hope your daughter gets to feeling better soon! Probably as soon as her friends start developing and they can talk "girl talk" together about it it will be more fun for her.
That's great that you and your dh got over your acne before you were in your later teens. I started getting pimples around 11 or 12, and at that age I didn't care so much.
But it got progressively worse and was still going strong into my 20's. I finally saw a dermotologist, who discovered I had extremely high androgen levels which he couldn't help with, so he referred me to an endocrinologist.
I ended up taking a combination of estinyl and something called androcur, which wasn't available here at that time so a friend of my mom's smuggled it in when she went to visit her family in Austria (I was determined to avoid acutane since I'd heard it could cause sterility, and after trying alot of other stuff the dr said androcur was the only thing besides acutane that might help me).
It cleared up up my acne -- but then my dad let me know how overwhelmingly costly it would be for me to keep this up, once I was through college and taking responsibility for myself (the doctor said I'd need it 'til menopause -- though I could take short breaks whenever I wanted to try for pregnancy).
Well, I decided to just quit taking it and trust God to heal me. It took like a year for my periods to get back to normal. And my complexion stayed clear at first, but then I started getting some breakouts -- but it was much more manageable than before, and throughout my 30's and 40's so far (I'm 45) my skin has been mostly clear.
I'm just hoping that neither of my girls has inherited my hormone-imbalance. Because I'd hate to go the medical route -- but at the same time I'd hate to have them suffering as I did for so long. It was beyond the normal teen acne, to the point where some strangers felt compelled to comment on it and offer their advice, as if they thought I didn't know how to wash my face properly.
