I was unaware of any of this at the time. My doc told me I could stay on them for years until my acne is gone. Hell even the lad at the chemist told my mum he was on them for years and never had a problem. My dad told me all along never to take those anti biotics for such a long time.
Heres the problem
- They dont go away by themselves I had some sitting in my face for 6months plus wondering what these things were I assumed they were scars because some of the big ones just looked like holes in my face. Other were just a huge lump under the skin with a pore I knew was the only exit hole.
- Think of acne and think of these, replace every pimple you get with these things...
- If aha were to rid me of them it would rid me of 1 whilst 20 new ones appear in that amount of time
- Theyre long/big/deep an the large ones are wide making them hard to extract from a small pore. Ive removed ones that are easily 5mm in length and atleast 2 that were bigger then that.
I havent heard of the other things you mentioned but ultimately do you think they will help? I have so many scars from these things so I actually want them gone for good!
im going to try differin and duac. if no luck then accutane for me also.
let me know what you decide ok take care bud x
They are a real pain do yours tend to leave scabs? Mine do due to the blackhead and also because of the force required and trust me I know you shouldnt pick.
I wish you good luck because I have had none yet.
I will inform you I am finally on Accutane and have just passed 2months. I cant say for sure whether its helping yet but ultimately it probably will after 6 months. My concern is mainly whether or not it will return.
I used to have really oily skin and since the anti biotics have had dry skin but all the sebum blocks up my pores it seems. I cant seem to explain it so I'll see what accutane does I suppose...
All the best mate
