My Path After Accutane Didn't Work > My New Hope After 4 Different Oral Medications

Posted 13 February 2014

Hi everyone!  
It's been a while since I've been on Accutane and I'm finally on a new oral medication as well as new topicals. Now I'm on sulfamethoxazole-tmp (commonly know as Bactrim/Septra) and for a topical, I'm using clindamycin phosphate topical lotion 1%.

Losing hope of treatment after Accutane > If Accutane Didn't Work For Me, What Will?

I wear chapstick before I go to bed and just as I wake up because that's when my li...

My Claravis (Accutane) Journey. > Why I Think I Have Acne.

Posted 29 March 2013

I think the reason I have acne is because of my father's death.  It was the end of 4th grade when he died. That's when I started to get a stray pimple or 2... I was only 9.     Once school started up, people were asking me about it and I was getting more homework which added onto my stress and anxiety. I had to get a counselor in school to talk about...
