I need a little help please.

Recommended Posts

I have had acne since I was in the 5th grade--I have tried absolutely everything from Clearasil to Clean and Clear to Proactiv to AcneFree to Tretanoin and Differin and various antibiotics-minocycline, tetracycline, some vitamin--currently I am on Bactrim and use two topicals, klaron lotion and tretanoin. I still get breakouts. I still have scarring. I am so sick of trying everything under and including the sun (though I'm past that, I use SPF now). I want to go on Accutane, because I have known several people who have had amazing results. A friend of mine had SEVERE acne and her skin is now flawless. I want to know if this is a permanent solution to this problem, and if I should go on the medication. Will my dermatologist give me a hassle?

Give accutane a go for sure. Its a miracle drug and can cure your acne or at least make you 60% clear after one course.
