Well, I really have no idea what to do about my poor face. Last year I didn't have these scars. This is about 8 months worth work of cyctic/nodular acne. From the picture, you can see it's done a nice job of leaving my face quite the mess (thank you gene fairy - arggh!).
Well, I have had acne in the past and done every antibiotic out there which worked then but not now.
I have been seeing Proffessor Chu in London, he's treated me with the N-lite and given me a regime of three creams which I've stuck to rigidly but it keeps forming.
Tried Yaz - worked a bit but was told that even if it did there's chance my face would explode once I stop. (Yay).
I've made diet changes that have done squat.
Had microderms, glycolic peels, blue light - done nothing.
Basically tried everything bar Spiro which I can't get here anyway.
It's sadly in my genes, my brother had it (did the Tane), my dad had it but not so bad, my auntie had it on and off all her life (holy moses!) So.... I think the only thing that is going to get rid of this is accutane. I'm terrified of it as I suffer with IBS pretty bad now because the depression/anxiety my acne friend has caused me. I'm also worried my health isn't great.
Soooo.....do you think I should do the crazy dance of death with the Tane?
I did about two days worth of Tane and it did drrrrry me up super fast. It was incredible that after one day my face felt like sandpaper!!
I'm beginning to think I have two options of living with this the rest of my life or biting that bullet. Baring in mind this is a mere 8 months worth of acne it's scarred me pretty baaad, and it ain't stoppin it's craziness on my poor tattered face (my face?!!!)
Thoughts anyone? also anyone have any ideas of what scar treatments I could get if i can get rid of this beast of a disease?
