I'm starting on Friday, and I just wish I'd done this sooner (ie. when I was at uni). I was actually referred to a dermatologist whilst at uni but he put me on Epiduo which helped but didn't work, I wish I had gone on accutane instead now.
Sorry I don't have any good advice for you, good luck whatever you decide!

Good luck with whatever choice you do make.

Try avoiding high gi foods, dairy and too much caffeine. Acne is a hormonal thing and they all affect your hormones in a bad way. Drink plenty of water.
Interesting article with more information here: http://www.purelynat...t-causes-spots/
Be sure to get calcium from other sources.
Wash your face twice a day with something gentle. A lot of products aggravate things. I like this cleanser http://www.purelynat.../acne-cleanser/
Also moisturise only when your skin is getting too dry (which can be a lot if you use harsh products). Max twice a day.
Be sure to use a non-comedogenic moisturiser (will not clog your pores). Hard to find but this is the best thing I have found in 5 years, http://www.boots.com...11051#container
Personally think drinking alcohol is okay ( have really acne prone skin), its more what you drink (try stay away from caffeine and sugary drinks).
