Some background information:
I first started breaking out early around the age of thirteen/fourteen. Since then I have never had clear skin. I am twenty one now and will be turning twenty two in December. I still have acne. My acne has gotten worse at times, and better at times. My face has cleared up for a day or two at most and then the acne comes back. I tried everything that the dermatologist has given me. Pills, creams, everything. I went on accutane around one year ago and my face did clear up fairly well but then I stopped taking it and went back to the creams. Bad mistake... Everything returned and nothing has helped me since. This last month I was applying topical gel in the morning, retin-a micro in the evening and taking an antibiotic twice a day. The only thing that happened to my face was that I aggrivated more acne to arise on my face. Nobody likes acne, I know im not ugly or anything but it sure feels horrible at times. Im returning back onto Accutane and im staying on it for good. This is truly my last resort. I dont know anyone else my age who has acne even close to mine, let alone any acne at all. I asked my dermatologist "why cant I get rid of my acne?" he told me that some people just need assistance to get rid of it. And I seem to be one of the "lucky" people nature intended to have acne for a long long time. I will be posting photographs of my face after use of Accutane and hopefully will be able to expect positive results. I recently shared my feelings to a girl who Ive liked for over seven years and I was turned down. And something tells me it was due to my acne... whatever though thats life. Maybe this will help someone, if not me than maybe you. I have pretty much given up on myself because I truly feel im cursed to be acne ridden for eternity. I must have one of the worst faces on this site. I gave blood today and will be able to pick up my prescription on Thursday. Hopefully my regimine will start then. Any and all criticism is welcome, good or bad. I can take it Im a strong person and not much can hurt a man who doesnt really give a damn anymore. Without further adue I present to you my photographs.
