Well your doc sounds like an A hole, but I'm glad you're getting the help you want :) Hope you have an easy journey with a fantastic result!

#3391547 You Want To See Cortisone Atrophy? I'll Show You Atrophy.

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.

Thats a discussion for you and your doctor. I wouldn't trust reviews on the internet for stuff like that. Anything that messes with your hormones can do more damage than good.

If you consider yourself to have severe acne, then you should definitely visit a specialist. There are professional treatments that can be used on active acne, you can try red light/blue light, but you should get a professional opinion. Your money will best be used after your acne is under control. I also think you should consider accutane if you consider it to be severe and have tried so many other options. I never thought I'd use it either, but after a while you need to weigh your happiness against the risks (much like cancer treatment, elective surgery,etc). I wish you luck!

Please please don't let this run your life. I have seen some really bad scarring (I have it on my face) and yours is NOT BAD. I was expecting so so much worse and when I saw it I literally thought it was nothing. No woman would ever notice this and think you were disgusting, I really don't think we would notice at all.

Ridiculous about the testosterone comment. Just no.



Perhaps you're allergic to the lipstick they wear? Do you wash your face after you finish? Or perhaps the friction is irritating to your skin, you could

try putting aloe on to calm it down afterwards.

#3362302 Accutane Advice Needed!

Posted by ughhhhh on 28 June 2013 - 11:41 AM

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.

ew those look deep from the side
you should get a tca peel it will make them red but it should get better

there is nothing 'ew' about it.

Exactly everyone is awesome and gorgeous!

Op it looks like you would benefit from subcision, but you should consult with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. I would not go with lasers just yet. You can also try dermarolling for the time being.

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.
