I need somthing to help it’s really getting me down I don’t want to go out he house I can’t wear makeup as it makes it worse or looks bad I just feel down over it

I can understand, it is also very uncomfortable.

Give them a call this week coming, I am certain they would be happy to step up your treatment, there are still lots of options, and if it doesn't help then I would suggest you ask to be referred to a dermatologist
