Help! Back & Chest (Pics)

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

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?

-Photos attached-

Love, and thanks

John.

Isotretionoin is the best treatment for acne so it may take a while especially because your on such a low dose of it 20mg but Im guessing around month 4 youll no longer have any new breakouts. I was on 70 mg and it took 2 months to start clearing me up

My body acne was the last to clear. Around the end of month 2 I saw improvement

Use 'AcnelaK' body soap. I hope it works for you.

I don't know if "medimix' soap is available in your country. But I can say that it's the best soap to treat body acne. And even 'safi' is good. It's a blood purifier. I live in India and these two products are available here.

God Bless! :)

You have marks like me, they're very similars, I read about that and I realized they're hypertrophic scars mostly, In my case with time, they have gone disappearing, obviusly not entirely
