Accutane like medication

Recommended Posts

Main prob. for me is oily skin; this has been permanently reduced via accutane however oil has returned prob. 15% to original level.

Had ETS surgery to reduce oily skin/sweating (hyperhidrosis) which dropped it by 50% but overall not worth doing due to side effects thankfully which i do not have but are possible.

Something which has benefited me but still early is Rubinol - not available in UK; stops sweating better for facial with fewer side effects than accutane; it basically dries the skin; like accutane which was originally a cancer fighting drug Rubinol was originally for urinary tract problems.

Just some interesting thoughts because i am seeking to understand the 'causes' and unfortunately only a real minority of doctors have a real understanding of these issues.

Hope this helps.
