On Antibiotics for a month, didn't work. Derm. appt tomorrow. What to do?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, my name is Dylan, I'm a 19 year old guy, and have severe acne.

I've suffered from mild to moderate acne since I was about 14 but over the last year it has gotten extremely worse on my neck. (I've been on the BP regimen for a few years. It seemed to stop working) I went to a dermatologist a little over a month ago and he said I had "cellulitis" on my neck too. :/ He prescribed me Cephalexin for two weeks, then had me come back to see where to go from there. I went back with no results, and he told me to stay on the Cephalexin for another 3 weeks. Well it's been 3 weeks, I have an appointment tomorrow, I've seen no results.

I'm pretty sure I don't want accutane based on what I've read. But I'm really frustrate and if I don't see any improvement soon...I might just get the accutane.

I'm looking for some advice on what to do. Is there anything specific I should ask the derm. for?

I've attached a few webcam photos of my acne. (Best i could do with the lighting)

Thank you for any help,
