In Topic: Considering Surgery For A Cyst

21 October 2013 - 03:59 AM

Just seen my dermatologist and it couldn't really have gone worse! He said if I want it removed I'd have to see a plastic surgeon but it's going to cost a lot! I really can't be dealing with this on my face but I don't know what to do... All my self confidence has gone because of one thing!

Did you have to wait long after you told your dermatologist you wanted it removed? I've got an appointment on Monday and I'm dreading he'll either not let me have surgery or make me wait for months!

Does that stuff reduce bumps? This bump on my cheek is after a cyst which had two cortisone shots but its still not clear!

I was taking 70mg for most of the course. Yeah I'm a bit worried about all that. He said I can drink again in a week's time but I might leave it a little longer really, I would literally hate to find my skin gets worse after being on it for so long. Just got to wait and see I suppose rolleyes.gif


In Topic: Accutane Causing Cystic Acne

I've just started my third month on roaccutane, I thought at first I was gonna be cured by now but I suddenly got cysts appearing just over a month ago. I had to get a steroid shot to reduce the inflamed ones but my dermatologist says my skin is getting better. I don't see it myself, I don't know what the drug has done but I've never had bumps like these before. Does anyone know if roaccutane actually helps reduce these cysts or does it do nothing to them... But I would recommend a steroid shot if they're getting you down.
