Considering Roaccutane

16 October 2014 - 11:21 AM

Hello smile.png

 

I've had moderate acne for quite a few years now (probably around 4 years now) and i'm getting really tired of it. I've been to two dermatologists and both of them instantly prescribed me roaccutane. Not even any questions about how I feel about it or anything..

 

I am currently battling a lot of anxiety and some depression (some due to acne, some due to other things) and I've read the side-effects about suicide thoughts among other things with this medication.. and I am really scared about it.. but on the other hand, just the thought of not having a shiny forehead full of oil and red cheeks full of acne is so nice right now.

 

My other concern with roaccutane is the side-effects with dry skin. My skin is already very dry and i can't seem to find a moisturizer that fits my skin (tried find one with many threads on this forum).. which means my skin will be even more dry. I dont know if my skin will be able to recover from that, and even if roaccutane works, I would have yet another problem..

 

What do you guys think? Do I take the risks?


Need Help With A Moisturizer Problem

01 September 2014 - 08:33 AM

Hi

 

So i've tried lots and lots of different moisturizers, most of which have been based as a lotion. What seems to happen every time i use a lotion is that it clogs my pores, and when i wash my face a couple of hours later this same white lotion comes out of my skin again.. like...arg what?!

 

So i've tried to use one gel moisturizer instead, which is the green tea moisturizer from proactiv. I seems to be better for my skin, but still can't really make it moisturized again... My skin have been somewhat dry for maybe a couple of years now because of all the previous failed acne treatments..and the fail to not find any suitable moisturizer.

 

So guys, im tired of finding my skin to be full of white dead skin cells every time i shower, and not being able to do anything about it..

 

If anyone is familiar with my problem, or could recommend a moisturizer for me please do :)

 

with much much thanks!


Serious Dead Skin Problem

07 August 2013 - 08:51 AM

Hi

 

My acne has been improving a lot this summer. This is probably due to both time and sun exposure.

However, my skin still struggles with some issues. Every time i wash my face and look in the mirror i see areas on my face having layers of built up dead skin cells. Some of them is just the ordinary "dry skin" white cells, but some days i can also drag my fingernail carefully on my skin and i will have big yellow-ish flakes coming off. After i've removed those yellow flaky areas the skin underneath is red and raw... this has now become a bigger problem than my actual acne itself. I guess it's been like this for quite some time now, but i've been able to keep it under control with shaving every other day (it exfoliates). But lately it's just been too much. Only shaving doesn't cut it, i have to use a wet washcloth to drag it off (and a lot comes off).

 

Im really frustrated.. It wasn't like this before.. Not only do i have to emotinally worry about my acne, but i also have to keep this under control. It's just too much..

 

Do i have a skin condition or do i just need some exfoliation cream and moisturizer?

 

Please give me some input if you've been in a similar situation or might know something about it.. thank you
