I have tried so much the past year. I have never had perfect skin, but the last year has been crazy. My face started out with a small knot that oozed green stuff and every week since then my face has exploded in horrible, painful acne. I guess it is acne; i wander sometimes. I have been on every antibiotic, vitamins, liver detox, and have tried pretty much every cream or topical ointment the dermatologist would prescribe. I am starting Accutane in 5 days, and I am hopeful because it did help my mother and sister. For some reason, I think that there is something more going on with my face than just acne. Has anyone experienced similar acne like mine from my pic's? Mine has come on so sudden and only seems to get worse. I have even tried just doing nothing for awhile. Sometimes I will have a day where I am hopeful and then the next day, ten more knots appear on my face. This is just so frustrating! I use to be such a social person and now alls I want to do is stay home. The doctors do not seem to understand.
Hi, I am 34 year old female. I have never had perfect skin, but it has always been bearable until about 9 months ago. Everything the dermatologist has given me has made my acne worse or not helped at all. About a week ago, I stopped using everything they gave me, except my new antiobiotcis. I thought my acne was clearing up a little bit, but I woke up this morning with about five more knots on my face. At times, I do not even want to go out of the house. I talked to the dermatologist on Friday and made an appointment to get on Accutane, but they said it was a 30 day process to get on it, which was disappointing. I cannot wait to try the Accutane. I feel like it is my last hope. I watch my diet, and I have went through the process of elimination with all the products I use. I just feel like maybe there is something I am missing. I do not see how my face could get so bad so quick and stay bad for so long. Any advice would be helpful! I know I sound depressing; I am just so fed up with it!!
