Day 12



Im avoiding mirrors today :pray::surprised:

Its crazy the amount of little whiteheads I have! Id love to know how long this IB is going to last but its hard to get an idea because each person is different. Hopefully not much longer!

I didnt go into much detail yesterday as was kind of in a hurry so....

I am 24 year old chap, since the age of 12 I started developing acne. I began taking antibiotics which where generally succesfull for a number of years! But last year their effectiveness had completely wore off and I began roaccutane. I was delighted with the results, the freedom of having clear skin gave me a new lease of life. I became popular with the ladies again, was in the gym most days :cry: got a good job! It was great!! My GP suggested roac, he started me off on 35mg, after a couple of months that went to 40mg. Altogether the course lasted 8 months, ending in December 09. My skin remained nice and clear till around april this year.

When I went back to my gp he refused to put me back on roaccutane and prescribed me antibiotics again!! If I went to him with my arm blown off I bet he would just put me on antibiotics :( So I went to one of the best derms in the country and right away he suggested another course of roac! This time im on 60mg, I think the IB is worse this time because of the strength of the roac this time!

I must say I was delighted leaving the derm office that day because I know how effective the medication can be!
