A little about myself, my name is Max. I have had acne since I was about 11-12. It's been a pretty hectic and prescription filled 10 years. I have always been able to maintain my acne but never make it completely stop. I've been on pretty much every topical you can name, even anti fungal for some reason, and every oral as well, bactrim for 4 months multiple times and did nothing. Epidou and aczone have been what I've used to keep my acne in line but over the last year or so it has gotten worse and worse. I am 140lbs with oily skin. I can't go a day without having to wash my face or use oil removing pads less than 5 times.
I have developed cystic acne that can get very deep and stay there until I go to my dermo to get shots into them. And i have developed bad scars over the years of battling woth my Skin. It's very hard for me to post as I am extremely shy and embarrassed about my face.
I started taking absorica 40mg once a day on 8/14/13. I have actually noticed my lips are a little dryer than normal but not much else. I will post pictures when I get the courage to do it haha.
A question I have for seasoned accutane users is, what was your diet during the time you took it? I have a bad habit of eating bad foods and drinking soda. Thanks
update** i added starting photos.
