If Accutane Didn't Work For Me, What Will?



It's been a while since I've posted anything, and really I have A LOT to share about my experiences with Accutane. Using Accutane wasn't that bad for me. Some side effects were very noticable, like the dry skin and very chapped lips. After my 6 months were up, I did have pretty clear skin. I had a lot of the scars but nothing huge. I was put on Aczone for morning use. i did that for a couple of months when I recently realized my acne was coming back, bigger and worse than before Accutane. I was torn. I didn't think that my acne would ever come back and BOOM. It's like a bad dream that you keep having. Some days you don't have that nightmare, but before you know it, it comes back to bite you. I don't know if there's any other options left. I lost all hope. I've changed my diet, taken pills, used many different creams and NOTHING has worked for me. As of now, I'm using Acanya in the morning and Atralin at night time. For those of you who don't know what those are, they are topical creams for acne. They haven't been doing me any justice. My acne has gotten so much more painful, and the pimples have increased in size. My skin looks bumpy and disgusting and I NEED A CHANGE. I have to bear with it for another 17 days before I have an appointment with my derm but if anybody can tell me their experiences after Accutane and what they did to clear their skin, it'd be GREATLY appreciated!

One month after I finished accutane, acne returned as before. I started Dans regimen straight away and never looked back:) I have been on it for 1 year and my skin is near perfect; I have no acne ever, even during my period. You have to try it to believe it. Good luck!
