Hi everyone! Man I'm so sorry that this has turned into a giant depressing thread! I hope everyone is doing well.


It was 6 months last friday I believe. I feel I am back to normal. There is a slight indentation where the one gigantic hole was, but I'm

confident that no one notices this besides me. I feel like myself again, actually even more outgoing than I was before since I hid myself for the past year. If it gets even better that's great, but if it doesn't I'll be okay with it.


I think it's hard to believe you will get better. I couldn't believe my mom, my doctors, any of you I've messaged with that came out the other side okay. But I did! And this experience has taught me a lot - doctors don't always know best, ask questions, when in doubt sleep on it, and appreciate everything you have right now because it could be worse, it has been worse. I'm stronger for it, which is what I was hoping for.

#3362302 Accutane Advice Needed!

Everybody reacts differently, you may have a strong reaction to a low dose. I could never go above 40 mg as the side effects were too much. I will say though that all of my side effects have gone away, even painful joints.

Accutane gave me KP. I had never had it before and it only arrived with the medicine. It is suggested to use Salicylic Acid products to help with KP. You mention your acne is in genital areas. Have you looked into Hidradenitis Suppurativa? It is concentrated in those areas as well as the underarms. Many people have said accutane did not work for that so I wouldn't want you to go through the treatment for nothing.

They don't mean like that, more like a rolling scar, just an actual indentation. You have an open wound. I would go to a doctor, you could get staph.

#3341548 You Know Blogs Don't Work From Profiles Right?

It's been like this for months. Get a syntax error any time you try to access a blog from a user's profile. Incredibly annoying.
