I would either tell your dermatologist something like what you wrote here and see if they will give you Accutane or try another one. I can relate to trying everything and nothing working. I would also look into hormonal treatments especially if you are a female. I hear a lot of sucess stories on here from them.

Yeah, I might switch dermatologists to seek a second opinion because I feel like I am just throwing my money down the drain.  It's frustrating because every new treatment I get is just a guess on whether it will work or not.  I'm tired of it.  Thanks for the advice.  I'll have to ask about those too!



Please start realizing that your acne has to do with your diet more than anything.

I'd say I eat moderately healthy and I have throughout my entire life.  I eat small meals or snacks multiple times a day (fruit, greek yogurt, granola bars, etc) and I mostly only drink water (except the occasional Diet Coke here and there).  I've been involved with competitive sports my entire life, so I've kind of been forced to eat healthier.  Not saying I won't ever eat a slice of pizza or a burger every once in a while, but I don't eat terribly.  I don't know if that's what you meant by diet though.

@VoZilla Wow, that's really exciting and good to hear! I'm glad it worked out for you. Hopefully someday soon I'll be able to use Accutane. I just am so done with trying out all these random face washes and them not working. I want to use Accutane to just clear it up (hopefully) for good.
@Beauty Bot Really?! There's this whole book packet thibg I got from my derm that I have to fill out, the whole iPledge thing. Yeah, there's NO chance I'm going to have sex or anything! I didn't see why I need to choose two forms of birth control in order to take it either. But I haven't taken the Yaz yet, I guess I'll try it out WITHOUT Accutane (considering I'm not on it yet) and see how that goes. I'd honestly rather just go on Accutane...

Yeah, I hope so! I feel like I'd join so I can talk to other people who are like me and going through the same things. But oh gosh yes, I sure hope my body reacts to it in a positive way, and works the way it should with minimal side effects. But we can only hope. smile.gif Thank you!
