Quitting Accutane ....need Advice

09 October 2014 - 02:16 PM

Ok so here is my story in brief...32 year old...never had really bad acne or acne at all ...6 months ago stress induced and bad dermatologists....did topical treatments .....convinced Accutane was the cure...had a mental breakdown....but been taking the Accutane...think it has made symptoms worse...four months on...initial breakout was traumatizing too someone who never had cystic acne...scars..red marks..and still clogged pores and blackheads...want to quite and go natural..tired of medicine toxicity....have become agoraphobic..weight loss...anxiety ridden...hair loss severe....and I used to be a world traveler. My question is what can I take or do holistically now since im deciding to stop the Accutane? how long can I wait for facials or extractions...and im sure I need cleansing and hormonal balancing...


Trying To Find Peace

25 September 2014 - 08:48 AM

These past few months have been so difficult for me emotionally. All kinds of feelings from anger at myself, confusion, why me, what can I do better, needing to be more positive but I cant, being anti social. Its my 3rd month on Accutane...I thought this drug was going to be my God sent to my strange breakout that I got several months ago...but im just covered in red marks, scars, and more cystic and whitehead acne everyday...wtf is wrong with me...im a grown woman to have severe acne like this and allow it to destroy my whole entire life. Sometimes I think ill never be able to be that confident sexy woman again that walked into a room and turned heads, what kind of boyfriend will I get now...some old ass man probably...I know I have to stop thinking negatively but honestly acne has changed me so much. it just kills me inside...and now even my hair is falling out. I just feel ruined.

How To Treat Scarred Pores And Shallow Scars

22 September 2014 - 09:19 AM

So currently I am on Accutane due to a sudden cystic acne breakout....im on my 32d month and still breaking out. I have a lot of red marks, scarred pores, and a few shallow indented scars....I know I cant do any treatments until like 6 months after Accutane but what would be the best treatment for these kind of issues...and is there any oils or anything I can use to make them look less visible while I wait to do a procedure?
