I have been on antibiotics, Dianette birth control and epiudo for 3 months now and I have seen very little improvement. One day my skin looks good, the next I have a big flare up all over my face, especially around my jawline. I'm incredibly self conscious, have no self esteem and I am getting major post inflammatory hyperpigmentation I am not enjoying things anymore because of the way i look
I am going to the dermatologist on Tuesday and he said to me if I am unhappy with the results in a few months he will give me accutane. I have a few questions i was wondering if you could help me with as i am unsure about this drug
1) Do you get an initial breakout? What are the chances of this? How long does it last?
2) Does accutane worsen hyperpigmentation? Does this clear after the drug?
3) My dermatologist said he would give me a four-five month course? Is this normally effective for moderate acne?
4) When are results usually seen? The first month? last month? Or are results seen after the treatment?
5) Was this drug worth it?
Thanks for reading
