As a start I would like to say how loveley this site is, if you're suffering.
I have had back and chest acne for about 2,5 years now. I have been going through defferent kind of medication from my doctor, but finally I got sendt to a dermatologist about 3 month ago. He promised me that my acne would go completely away over time, but im confused over how long I have to wait. He told me it could take some month before it would start working, and yes I've startet to see a little different.
Im really self-conscious of it, and I(sadly) have taken myself in avoiding people, especially girls...
Ohh and I got some medicine called "Isotretionoin" 20mg.
So my question(s) is: how long before my body acne will be gone(almost gone)... I know I got some bad scaring, will it get better or am i stuck with them? And those deep red marks, are they scars or what would it be called?
Love, and thanks
