Hey guys, i really need some advice

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I've had acne for about 11 years now and have been treating it with benzyl peroxide. I have developed quite a lot of pitted scars and i dont feel it ever helped with either the acne or the scarring. I've changed over to nixoderm and have been using it for about 3 weeks now.

It makes some of my scars look smaller as its a pretty thick mixture. Its made my face pretty red and swollen though.. :(

One doctors has recommended accutane, but im so scared it will lead to more scarring, as ive read so many accounts of this and fear i wouldnt be able to afford to fix it if it does. My acne is mostly whiteheads blackheads and a few pustules.

Does anyone know of any better products for sensitive skin or should i just keep using what i am now? Im pretty pale with blond hair and blue eyes so any redness shows up heaps.

Any advice would be great. :)
