In one month, i will be started accutane. I am worried about the side effects, but i know the process will be worth it. Here is a little background of mysef...... I used to have flawless skin, and i would panic over the sight of one ( yes one!) small pimple. However, in the past 9 months, my face has become engulfed in breakouts. Not only are they covering my entire face but i have numerous cysts forming. I have tried everything from sulfameth/trimethhoprim to spironolactone in hopes of clearing this sudden acne attack. Nothing helps. I have finally resorted to accutane. My confidence levels have dropped and i will do anything to avoid social events because of my acne. Keep your fingers crossed that acutane saves my face!
