Ok so I started having acne about 6 years ago when I was 12-13, now I'm 18 and my acne is probably worse than ever. I went to the doctor over a year ago and he started me on duac, unfortunately it didn't work and my treatment changed onto epiduo (0.1% adapalene, 2.5% BP) and to my anguish it didn't work either. I went onto a 8 month course of lymecycline using epiduo as a topical still. Again this hasn't worked, for the past 4-5 months I've been using erythromycin oral and epiduo and it's just become worse than ever. I have an appointment with my derm on Thursday and I just feel like crap. It really has started to take its toll on me and I'm always avoiding social situations now even with my family, I just stay in my room all day and try to avoid any human contact. Not sure what to do now and I'm thinking if maybe it's time I try isotretinoin but I am scared of the side effects so have no idea what to do.
Thought I'd just post my thoughts on here to atleast get it somewhat in the open and not just bottled up inside of me.
