Today is my first day starting Claravis. I have had acne for about 2 years now, and in the last 6 months, it's gotten worse than its ever been. Its caused me to withdraw a little from my social life, and it really upsets me. I've tried every class of antibiotics, I have used almost every topical in the book and it just won't go away, and its starting to leave scars in my skin so I have decided to use isotretinoin.
The first time my doctor offered, I declined because my acne isn't severe, and I knew how powerful this drug is. But now I'm just so sick of the stress that acne has put on me and I am ready to start. I'm going to blog throughout my treatment because I know that it helps to read people's stories. I researched for weeks before I made my decision and I hope I can help someone out. (even though I'm not even sure anyone will find this) I have attatched some pictures
