Hey Guys, hows it going!
I'm Will, i'm 22 and i've had acne since i was 17 but it's never really been a problem, a couple of whitehead here and there every couple of weeks. But fast forward to last September, my acne started flaring up out of nowhere and i was slightly concerned because my skin was generally quite clear before. I went to my GP and i tried Lymecycline and there was no difference after a couple of months so i went back to get something else, i was given Erythromycin and that gave me an allergic reaction... jeez no luck whatsoever haha
So in January i was given Doxy with Differin gel and it did start to work and then after 3 months of it, my acne came back with a vengeance, so now my acne is the worst it's ever been. It's a mixture of Cystic and Nodular, it's not fun at all! Sooooo I've now decided to go on Roaccutane, i've had to go private so it's costing a fair amount but i think it's time. I could get it for free on the NHS but the referral from the hospital hasn't come through yet (Could be another 2-4 months) My acne really bothers me and i've got quite a lot of PIH which is quite annoying. I mainly get it on my t zone and on the cheeks and around the nose and mouth
I just got back from the derm and he's give me 40mg for 2 months but he said i should try 20mg for a week or so first (I'm 5"9 and weigh 67KG) Do you think i should take 20mg or just go for 40mg and hope for an early or no initial breakout? hmmm
I hate posting pictures but i wanted to see the progress (erghh) Thats about it then, i'll be updating a couple of times a week on my progress, GO GO GOOOOOO!!
