Okay so I'm a 22 year old guy, in college. Have had bad acne since 13, got worse after a short round of tetraysal at 18 (gave me side effects- IBS, food intolerances, worsened my acne!!). IBS healed but food intolerances and acne still remain.
I have it on my face back and chest, sometimes scalp. I keep it at bay by what I eat (no sugar/dairy/gluten/nuts/fruit/alcohol).
They all break me out.
So I've tried everything
-tried healing my gut( fermented foods, bone broth)
-liver cleanses and flushes
-zinc, vitamin a, and all other vitamins and minerals
Thats not even all of it.
I have many scars (mainly ice-pick,pockmark, and red marks) covering my face back and chest.
Every cyst I get usually scars.
I wear concealer and tinted moisturiser, I'm a dude.
Topical shit never works.
I don't know anyone who has bad skin anymore, I'm going crazy.
I know accutane would only be like a band aid in a way, but if its a bandaid that gives me a few years or months of not thinking about my skin I'll do it.
So I'm wondering, what do you guys think? Should I try it?
