wow that's crazy we are both on keflex! i would keep taking the keflex at least until after your wedding to be safe. wow that is coming up quick! march 3rd will be here before you know it. i have a had spots for a long time too and the only thing that works for me is getting cortisone shots. i hate getting them though! yeah i go back and fourth on the accutane. i dont want to be on spiro forever either but my pa and the derm agrees that with hormonal acne that accutane wont cure it so that unless i stay on some sort of hormonal treatment as well it will come back. so if i do the accutane i will be on spiro the entire time while on it and then stay on it after i am done to avoid a relapse. it all makes sense to me now though. i have my fingers crossed your skin will be nice for your bachelorette party and your wedding!
To both of you, if your derms say your acne is hormonal and that accutane won't cure it I wouldn't put yourself through it. Take it from me, I unfortunately had a derm that was older and not up to date on spiro as an option and I went on accutane twice! The first time it cleared me for maybe 3 months max and the second time I had pimples the entire 9 months I was on it (that's right 9 months of hell)! I was moody, dry and my cysts were awful. Now this new derm has said spiro should do the trick and that I should never have done accutane. I'm only 6 weeks into spiro, but I know that accutane is not the answer... if you feel it is, then go with your gut, but I just wanted you to know that I wasted time, money, and lots of tears for nothing.
