Hello, I'm male, 18 years old and have been suffering with acne since I was about 12 years old.
About 2 days ago I went to my dermatologist, been seeing her for a couple months for my acne she gave me a good regimen to follow and had to chemical peels done for my acne scars, but now my acne still doesn't want to go away to topical treatments and also antibiotics.
So now she decided to give a Decutan, have to take 60mg a day, at night with dinner and I'm scared to take it because of all the bad side effects it has.
Just some questions:
- Is Decutan like Accutane?
- Could it clear my acne up permanently?
- What does this medication do exactly?
Would be really grateful for comments guys and support. I'm going through a bad patch because of my acne. I don't really want to spend the rest of my life with acne! and I'm tired of waking up in the morning and looking in the mirror and seeing a new white head every day around my face.
