Waiting

20 November 2014 - 04:57 AM

Hiya.

I went to the GP yesterday for a checkup on my acne. Previously, I've been on two types of antibiotics however it hasn't been as successful as I hoped. My doctor said he wanted me to go on Roaccutane and he said he'd send me a letter with an appointment regarding the dermatologist.

My question is, how long will I have to receive the letter and how long do you think I'll have to wait for my appointment? I know it's longer because acne isn't considered that serious compared to leperacy and things, but I'd just like an estimate. I live in one of the smallest cities in the UK by the way and this is through the NHS (I don't know if this will influence the time.)

Also, the antibiotics I'm on right now are useful for making my acne less apparent, but I still get painful ones, blackheads (everywhere) and whiteheads a lot. Do you think the dermatologist would consider that it's actually worse than it looks without the antibiotics?

Thank you :)

Peppermint Oil Capsules

Hey, I'm going to try to reduce my oil oil by using peppermint oil capsules. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what dose I would need to have to see a decrease.

Thank you :)

Green Tea

Hey guys!

 

I'm going to start drinking green tea to try and decrease my androgen levels (I believe green tea is an anti-androgen) but I'm not sure how strong it actually is... Does anyone know how much green tea (preferably how much tea bags) I would have to consume to notice any changes in sebum production or hair growth? The only way I can consume it is through drinking it so please don't recommend supplements.

 

Thank you. :)

Hey guys, recently I've been trying to find a moisturiser that will not leave a heavy grease type substance, and will protect me from the sun... I actually can't seem to find one, could any of you guys recommend one? I can't buy online btw...
