I had an appointment on Monday, and I just want to say that this was devastating I feel incredibly upset. So first of all, the reason why I went to this appointment was because I wanted accutane. I've been on tretnoin for years and this November I tried minocycline, both helped had very small changes. The doctor refused to prescribe the medicine and told me accutane was a last resort, he gave me a higher prescription of tretnoin and new topical that started with a C. I'm not doubting the doctor's orders, but what will a topical do for my body acne? I feel anxious that I'm never going to get rid of the body acne. It really makes me feel insecure, sometimes I break down when I look at how bad my body acne is.
