My Acne Story



Where do I start????????

I have been suffering with acne for 20 years. I can remember getting my first pimple...it was on my nose!!! (Terrible...omg!!!) I was 10 years old in the 5th grade...one of my class mates asked me what it was and I told her it was a mosquitoe bite. I was soo embarrassed. My acne continued in high school. I was prescribed soo many medicines. I had very bad breakouts. I would wear a bang just to cover 1/3 of the pimples. I was prescribed Accutane months before my prom but I discontinued because I wasn't able to keep up with getting the monthly blood tests.

Now I am in college, one night I watched a Pro-Active commercial. I just knew it would clear my acne; I brought it on the spot. I took my before pictures and months after my face got worst! I was so disappointed. So I just lived with my acne. I would go to the dermatologist and get prescribed medicine that didn’t work...or if it worked...it didn't last over 3 months. I even purchased the Murad Skin Complex...it lasted for 3 months.

This summer I turned 30, was taking antibiotics and I one of the worst breakouts. I demanded to my dermatologist that I take the strongest medicine. So I am on Accutane, day 3!!!!
