need something new

When is some new medication or something gonna come out and save me?

I hear there is another 'accutane like' drug that is in development with reduced side effects or something but it is a while off. Seems to me that nothing new has come out in ages ](*,)

I actually just read an article on this very topic. What I got out of that article is that the acne business is a billon dollar business and to find a cure would put a lot of people out of business. But the did talk about the sunbeam laser. The point of the article pretty much was if they can fix wrinkles and get rid of them why can't they find a cure for the many acne suffers. I have to agree with that.

Thats the thing I hate about these commercial treatments, you never know if they put an ingredient in the medicine to break you out. Acne is very much a life threatening disease and it needs to be cured. The people who create acne products also make other things too so there are products to fall back on.

I doubt we will ever see a cure for acne from the big companies like Neutrogena(they actually make prescription acne meds too, like Retin-A), because they make so much money it is ungodly for people to continue to buy there medicane to keep there acne at bay. Only way we will see a cure is from university studies, government studies, or priate studies. I would be happy with something gauranteed to work to control acne and keep you clear, as long as you continue with it. Thats not a cure, but somthing that will keep you clear as long as you keep up with it, and you cant tell me the corporate assholes cant make something that wont control almost everyones acne.

Definitely agree with the posts here-once they have you as a customer they want to keep you that way for at least 4-5 years. Our only chance is if some rogue company finally cracks it but we can keep on dreaming.
