I visited my derm a couple weeks ago and she noted that my only problem is makeup... She also said she believes this because I don't break out anywhere else (back,chest,etc). I've suffered since I was about $14. My sibling eventually had Accutane so this runs in the family. She put me on Plexion (a face wash), Differin, an Azelaic (?) cream, and Doryx... She said this should clear it up. Should I believe this, esp. with my family history? :wall:

Depends, maybe your acne is mild and that's only due to makeup, try that and if not get Accutane.

oh i forgot to mention, i'd say i probably have mod-sev acne... i have black/white heads, nodules, and small cysts. they last for about a month even with the professional meds.

the main reason i'm really questioning her was she seemed quick to judge and just yelled that i was an easy case and makeup was my problem. if that's it, fine, i'd love to see her solution clear it up... but im afraid i'm wasting my time!

i've always had oily skin so i dont know... it's just embarassing and depressing. opinions?! please! any!
