Acne

Patient

Q: When i was 13-14 i had acne on my chest back and shoulders when i washed in the shower they turned into jelly and the head would get knocked off easy leaving an open wound with the head of the spot deep routed. i used cream from the doctor but it didnt help. im now 18 years old and have scars on my chest back and shoulders and also white bumps i was wondering if it was worth going to see my doctor about it and if he can do anything for me or send me to someone else for help as i am really unhappy about it and dont take my top off as it feels uncomfortable.
