Hey everyone and welcome to my blog,
I guess the main reason for writing this is to get feedback from other people and also so that when I am done I can look back at my journey of hopefully becoming acne free.
A bit of background about myself, I am 19 years old, a male, weigh about 75kg and have had acne for roughly the past 4 years. Acne appears to pretty much be genetic in my family, with my two older brothers as well as my dad all having acne. I honestly can't tell you why I just decided to take the leap and go onto Oratane, I suppose it could just be me being naive and just thinking my acne would go away by itself. Both my brothers have been on it and had pretty good success. So last week I went and saw my dermatologist, he took one look, and prescribed me 20mg of Oratane saying that I had quite severe acne. I hope this 20mg wont last too long and he bumps me up. I just kind of want to jump right in, and get it over and done with I guess. I know it is only day 3 but I just want things to happen faster.
Being day 3, the only thing I have really noticed is more white heads, that's probably cause I am trying to stop myself from picking though. I think i might just be hoping that things are happening. But we shall see as time goes on.
