17, Male, Uk, Clear My Skin.

23 February 2015 - 03:01 PM

Hey everyone.rolleyes.gif


I've had acne since about year 10 when I was 15. It's not really too severe and cystic like some peoples which I have seen on here, which I'm grateful for, however it's very persistent and my skin is the oiliest thing ever. 


After a three month referral from my GP, the dermatologist prescribed me Roaccutane and here I am hoping to finally clear my skin.eusa_pray.gif


I've been prescribed 20mg and 40mg on alternative days, to even out around a 30mg average. I'm like the average height for my age but I'm underweight so yeah.


Just wanted to make this so hopefully you guys could give me some support and I could stay determined. hifive.gif


Anyway, thank you for reading this far.rolleyes.gif


Oh and I've ordered some of the CeraVe products from amazon so hopefully they'll arrive soon, I just can't get to like Cetaphil.eusa_think.gif



 Took my first pill with my tea and nothing so far but I'm a bit nervous for an initial breakouttttttt.

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 :)
