Elementary School- started getting white heads
Middle School-Full blown acne due to puberty
Freshman Year of High School-Went on Accutane
My face has always been pretty bad. During the summer of 2007, I started my accutane treatment. I went through the usual side effects and by the time freshman year was over, my face was clear. My acne was actually quiet bad, and going into sophomore year 2008, my scars began to fade. Then around late 2008 to 2009 my face broke out again. Since then I have not tamed it. I don't have as many cystic pimple outbreaks,but most of my pores are full of white heads. (cheeks, nose, chin & above lip) I've tried many prescriptions that never worked before accutane and now (2010) I've been looking for an acne cleanser to help. My face is full of scars, pimples,and white heads. What can I do.
Note: My acne is genetic. My mother went through accutane in the 80's and my brother in the early 2000's. They have had clear skin ever since,but not for myself. I have not seen my dermatologist since 2008 and am wondering if I should go back on accutane.(well...the generics)

Accutane is amazing, but as I'm sure you know, can have crappy side effects. Avoid it if you can.
