In Topic: Confusion About My Accutane Situation

01 March 2013 - 09:41 AM

Thanks for your reply :) I indeed don't think Accutane is at all necessary for me so I'm not going to take it, I was just a bit thrown by how closed-minded a doctor who must have seen thousands of acne patients can be. And how he is turning a blind eye to the very legitimate side effects people feel. I think especially for someone who is very unsure about their acne, it can be quite misleading. But yes thanks for the reassurance, when you speak to someone that convinced you do start to doubt yourself a little :lol:

In Topic: Can Red Marks Stay Forever?

27 February 2013 - 02:49 PM

They cannot stay forever even if they do take several years to fade... Especially if they are, as you say, 'red marks' and not pitted scars.  Have you tried some red mark-lightening home treatments like lemon, lavender oil or emu oil? Lemon and lavender oil have really helped my red marks become much more bearable, I have just started trying emu oil. Pitted scars are tougher to tackle but are also not permanent if you do the right treatments. If you have severe pitted scars and they are really bothering you can talk to your dermatologist about different methods of getting rid of them. Hope you find something that works for you :)
