today i missed school to go to my looooong awaited derm appointment. so i get there and 7 fucking trainees hafta come in kinda embarrassing, same thing when i got my braces. anyway doc says i should go on accutane, i never really thought i would ever be the person to get on accutane but whatever. SO he looks at my current cyst and says, " hmm i be back and we'll drain that" so im expecting a gentle poke and some pressure, when he comes back with his entourage he pokes my face and SQUEEZES the shit out of it. i never thought you were supposed to go that fucking rough, and he says when i go to his office he wants to numb my face so he can be more aggressive!!!!!!! im like what the fuck why not just use a jigsaw. so i have a bandage on it and i dont even wanna see it. i probaly have huge crater on my face. were ur derms so rough ????

my derm said 85% of the time acne is either 100% gone or comes back at a managable degree that doesn't need accutane.

I've had it when trainees come in, always kinda embarrassing.

I hate trainees. He didn't do much at all.. then he asked me how does acne effect you day to day in public. I felt like saying I don't know how much does your face effect you in public ? Then he bugged me about smoking. Does smoking effect acne btw? And good luck with tane maybe you will have better luck then me.

Everybody has a trigger IMO. My brother's trigger is definitely nicotine. When he quit, he cleared up tremendously. When he started again, he went back to constant breakouts. I figured I'd give it a shot and quit for 6 months. My acne didn't improve. I know quitting is hard to do, but it's definitely worth a shot just to see if nicotine is your trigger. Good luck!
