My name is Ava, I'm from Britain, I'm 15 years and have been suffering from acne since the age of 11, and its been getting progressively worse. Its mainly cystic and pustular, but I'm also littered with whiteheads, spreading to my back.
My acne-ridden life isn't very original, and my displeasure is completely led by my vanity- it's just hard when I'm surrounded by my beautiful baby-skinned friends.
SO, I went to my GP where I was prescribed a load of stuff, but I won't list them for you.
I then went to a dermatologist and had a third antibiotic prescribed called Erythomycin. I had talked to him about Accutane, but I wasn't that keen at first, Anyway,the antibiotic gave me a rash, which was annoying because it seemed to be working on the acne :/ So we decided on Accutane and here I am! I've been prescribed 30g a day, but I;m hoping it will be bumped up to 40g at my next appointment
I've been on it for two weeks now, and am experiencing quite dry skin and lips, a little lower back ache, but thats all so far- but in two weeks I've barely touched the surface right? I can't wait for it to get going- despite dreading the IB
Hope someone finds this blog useful
