the Dermo- Info needed please :)

Recommended Posts

hello guys,

i am after a bit of info/advice...

basically i had acne since i was 15 and im now 22. when i was a teen i tried everything from the doctors: topical, oral antibiotics etc etc. after it didnt clear i was refered to a dermotologist (i cant really remember what she gave me/told me) but in the end i was prescribed roaccutane after persisting and asking for it from my GP. My acne cleared for 2 and half years as i was still on Dianette (it was bril! i cannot tke oral contraceptives now as i get migraines) now my acne has come back- i have tried around 6 different antibiotics and lotions and some worked but very bad side effects for me..

anyway now my GP doesnt know what to do so yesterday reffered me to the dermatologist and said i should wait for a letter with an appointment.. My question is.. what is it that the dermatologist can actually do for me or give me to help me with my acne that my GP cant? I just feel this maybe a waste of time!

thanks for any replies you may have! x
