This thread has become pretty useless for most of us because of the trolls and doesn't seem to be going anywhere to be honest.
I disagree, I have made great progress the past two months thanks to this thread. At least one other person is progressing too.
Ever thought about certain folks having an interest to close down this thread???
Also I don't really know what you are doing on this thread, it appears that you actually can't wait to get on accutane:
I'm glad you're progressing, but I'm on this thread to learn both sides. Some of the posts just seem to ramble and shoot random comments. Other people who haven't been on Accutane have come to learn from this thread as well. I've been studying Accutane for a while now and this site has ( more or less ) been very useful to see the positives and negatives of it. I've held off on Accutane for a while in an attempt to try to find the "root" cause, but I have wasted so much time doing so and doctors are quite slow. I've been at this for a long time. I'm asking questions, but still waiting and hesitating to take something like this if there's an option to fix myself.
Get off gluten (better even all overly starchy foods), sugars. Reduce inflammation in your body and boost your body's ability to recover and heal itself. Increasing the speed at which wound healing occurs takes you a long way. The root cause will be some combination of hormone and immune system imbalance due to genetics, environmental polutants such as heavy metals and pesticides, eating the wrong foods etc.
My guess is you haven't seen my past posts on this and that's ok. I have been off these foods for years, including hidden culprits like casein and whey, or hidden glutens. I don't do dairy or wheat. I do fruit sugar. I've taken that away, and this away. My acne has reached a point where it doesn't care. I also heal slow as shit regardless. I think I heal faster eating "normal" foods actually. Also, someone mentioned Blue Ice, but I don't know what that is. I'm aware Accutane is the shittiest shit known to man. But when it makes you bleed all the time, causes pain and depression on top of all other things, it's very difficult to deal with and I know you can probably relate. You can't travel and not worry about it, eat on the go when you absolutely may need to or do other things that may be a part of life. My acne is not severe but it is moderate and very persistent and very damaging to my skin and I'm 25 now.
