Hey there, so i had and appointment today in the morning and my derm saw that i wasn't satisfied with my results and that my back has been getting more breakouts & it sucks because i don't even pick at them and they leave marks. Also my face hasn't been clearing up and its leaving me some marks too(annoying). So she decided to put me on isotretinoin for the next 6 months Im really nervous but excited. I heard lots of good & bad stories about this medicine thats why. So i got my next appointment next Thursday. ugh another week to wait. i just want to start already. I know 6 months its a long time but who cares ive been struggling with acne for like 3 1/2 years now so its not a big deal i hope time flys by so i could start enjoying my life and college more. So yeah. If anyone heres reading this can you suggest some good products to use while on this drug i would really appreciate it.
Im 18 now and im really tired of my skin problems. ive had acne since i was 16 and im about to be 19, i really dont know what to do ive tried lots or regimens and facewashs, retin a, diferrin, doxy, bactrim. I go to college and its so hard for me to go since i have acne and all the girls and guys have clear skin =(. I've met new friends and everything but its so hard for me to be social with people since im not confident i have low self esteem it really sucks. i choose to stay home and not go out on weekends or weekdays i dont feel comfortable around a lot of people i feel like they are starring at my skin but who knows. i don't even like talking to girls i feel ugly and i feel like im not good enough for there standards im also shy because of my acne. I just want all this to go away and maybe i can live my life.
