As I suffered for so long, the doctor's eventually prescribed me Roaccutane. Roaccutane is to thank for the massive improvement in my skin. However, I was told my acne would almost certainly never come back, and guess what? It did. But don't be disheartened by this!
Pros: During the time - and for several months after - completely cleared acne! Skin was left unblemished and unmarked!
Cons: Had to take lots of tablets. Dried out lips severely. Hair became dull. Skin was dry. (A small price to pay for the results)
Recommend? Definitely. If you are a long-term sufferer or have severe acne, I definitely recommend Roaccutane. However, there are many, many side effects to this tablet. I fortunately only experienced the mild ones such as chapped lips, but make sure you speak to a GP or Dermatologist and completely understand about this tablet before taking it.
I'll put up a post about my time with Roaccutane, which hopefully you may find helpful (:
