I am new to this website. I have been dealing with acne since I am 13, I am now 20 and it worse than ever. I have small pimples on my forehead and chin. My cheeks is where I have it the worst and its all red and irritated and hasn't been clear in years.
I have an italian/irish skin tone, somewhere in between freckles and a tanned skin, and when you look at my face all you see is red and acne. I hardly leave my house because I am so embarrassed and don't want to see anyone. It seems everyone around me has clear skin at the age of 20.
I have been on accutane before, but never finished because my face cleared up immediately. I really had very little side effects, but I was extremely dry! i had to put Vaseline on and all over my lip area
I will be starting my next course sometime this month, (finishing it this time!) and I literally am itching to start. Il be starting birth control this week for the treatment. Acne is taking over my life. I have very low self esteem and I feel I have the worst luck in the whole world so I am hoping nothing goes wrong this time, and my acne clears up. I'm literally wasting my life away in an acne caused depression
