I need some advice please. I have had mild to moderate acne since I was about 14. It runs in the family as my dad had severe acne and my sister also has mild to moderate acne.

I get 2 or 3 cysts at a time as well as papsules and putsules. I know People may think i shouldn't be complaining as its not severe but it really does affect my confidence and makes me anxious when out in public. I'm really fed up with it and hate people seeing my skin.

I have tried many pills and topical treatments including dan kern's regime but didn't have much effect. Minocycline did clear me up for a while but then i think it lost its effect as all my acne came back. Dianette cleared my skin up quite a lot too but when i came off it my acne came back even worse.

Well to get to the point of this topic, my question is does my acne have to be severe to take accutane?
