Derm visit / Isotrex Day 1


MissSac17

469 views

So I had my first dermatologist appointment last week.

Long story short, it was a total of maybe 6 or 7 minutes (I swear) he was rather nice actually. He prescribed me Isotrexin - a mix of Isotretinoin and erythromycin. Unfortunately there was a lot of confusion with this gel and it took me a week to get it plus they gave me the wrong one - Isotrex. 

Isotrex is just a gel with Isotretinoin 0.05%. Its a retiniod (vit A derivative) and apparently less irritating but less 'superior' than Tretinoin. 

There's not much reviews on it unfortunately! The ones I've read have been very mixed. 

This is the last chance saloon before Roaccutane.

 Please work.
