I hope you are all well.
After suffering with mild to moderate acne for approximately ten years I finally decided to start the regimen yesterday. I am already feeling happier and more positive. The pinned advice about the state of mind was extremely helpful for the mental preparation.
I have previously taken tetracycline, erythromicin and most recently oxytetracycline tablets. The oxytetracycline tablets worked brilliantly over the six months course. However as I feared, the acne returned. I have been told by the doctor that I would have to wait for three months before I could start another course of the tablets. He stated that if the second course is ineffective then he can refer me for accutane. The three months will finish at approximately the end of this month. I have an appointment to see the doctor on the 2nd January 2014.
In addition, I am aware that I will have breakouts on the regimen but I am worried about potential marks or scarring from these breakouts. The key reason for not starting the regimen earlier was due to the fact that my marks on my cheeks and forehead were improving. What can I expect in this regard?
Sorry for such a long post .
