I had it and there is no need to panic.
There are new, albeit very expensive, antibiotics to treat it. The problem is the antibiotic might cause a flare. So be sure to take a probiotic along with it (with good bacteria).
I probably had it for years, because now I notice my acne flares up less and heals faster.
