how can you..

talk your doctor into perscribing you accutane, i know i had asked about it in the past and they were very adamant on not giving it to me, but since then my acne has gotten worse and light scarring/dark spots are still present =(..

I can't really tell you how because I never had to ask for accutane, my derms decided to put me on it. I can tell you this. Some Derms are not fans of accutane. At the appoitment I was supposed to get my first prescription of accutane I saw a two totally different derms (there are several derms where I go) because the two I usually see were gone. They kept asking me questions and wanted to check for Demodex mites. Well I didn't have demodex mites and the questions they asked well i didnt mean to give them a different answer then I should of I just forgot about things. I asked to be seen by the derms I usually see because they were going to stick me with the derms who don't like accutane. Sorry I wasn't much help with talking to your derm about getting accutane but if nothing works I would switch derms.
