So I'm wondering...how do I convince my derm in a soon-to-be visit to allow me for like, 10mg? I'm fairly sure from the studies I read that it would knock my acne on its ass, and I'm tired of having acne. The hyperpigmentation is awful because I get like 3 new spots a day, so my skin never has a chance to heal, and it leaves deep red marks, plus I have two moon shaped indents now ( for those who think moderate acne doesn't rip up your face sometimes).
I still use salycylic acid but it just makes my face look more red and my skin seems to not give a crap because it's deeper acne.
I know this is standard protocol in other countries, but American docs are so stubborn. I've recently had to move so have a new derm, and the previous offered a low amount of 20 mg at the LOWEST ( which I rejected due to caution about Accutane) but I think 10 mg is sufficient from studies I've seen. Did anyone have to convince their American derm and how'd ya do it?
