please, i need some advice. i've had acne for 8 years now...started of with severe cystic acne and i've taken everything from antibiotics, to lasers, to birth control, and even two rounds of accutane. at one point it helped, though it didn't go away completely...
it's been about 4/5 months now, i have been getting really painful nodular acne, along my jaw. first started off on the right side and now it's also on the left. i don't think i've ever had nodular acne before (everything else, yes but not this kind) no matter what i do, it doesn't seem to go away and in fact it is getting worse and i am getting really desperate.
i was thinking about going on accutane once more, but this will have been my third time. i am reluctant to go on it again, because let's face it, it's not really the 'softest' medicine. even though i didn't get very bad side effects the last two times, i am sure it's not exactly the best thing for my body, that is why i'm so reluctant. PLUS, it's not like it would be my first time - who knows what will happen after the third round?
i just wanted to know if anyone could give some advice/tips on what i should do next? is it okay to go on accutane a third time? how many times have you been on it? is there any other method/medicine to get rid of nodular acne?
many many thanks in advance.
