making another DERM appointment...

Recommended Posts

well I went to the derm oct 30 (been 24 days today) and was prescribed doxy, benzaclin and a cleanser called plexion, my derm said wait 2 months if this doesnt work i'll put you on accutane and I know damn well this stuff isnt working/isnt going to work (making me look worse). my face is tearing me apart to the point where I stopped going to school (college) cause of it and its sooooo hard to look people in the eyes knowing they see my acne. I basically just want to hide from everyone even my best friends... I want to make another derm appointment to sit down and tell her how acne is controling my life and how I want to hide from the world hoping she feels my pain and puts me on accutane. anyone ever do this? im a 22 year old guy and at times I just want to sit here and cry... yeah yeah I know men aren't suppose to cry but thats how much acne has taking over my life... at times I don't even wanna be in front of my own family members cause of this. any tips to get my derm to give me accutane and not wait the 2 months? thanks.

im going to call their office tomorrow and hopefully they're open otherwise I have to wait till monday. anyways happy thanksgiving everyone!

People will see you when they look you in the eye. I'm not sure what the numbers are, but I'd bet a fairly high % of people experience acne at one point in their life or another.

Yep I did a Google Search look what I found here...

Nearly 85 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 24 get acne.

So that means that more than 8 out of 10 people you encounter have experienced it personally. We aren't alone here people.
