Should I ask my derm to be put on accutane?

Recommended Posts

I've been on:



Benzoyl Peroxide



Retin-A .1%


Hollistic (No Wheat 2 months, No Diary 2 Months. No more processed foods in general)

I have some 4 pimples on the right side of my face and I have a cyst on my nose, small bumps on my face and scarring on my nose and cheeks. I havent seen my dermatologist in about 5 months because I wanted to try the holistic way of treating acne and eat properly- no wheat then no dairy, no processed foods, no medication.

I'll be seeing him next week - I am thinking about asking him to put me on a low dose of accutane because I have a few pimples and a cyst.

What do you guys think?

You should ask yourself honestly if you really need accutane? Either way, low dose is more than enough for you consider that your acne is pretty mild. No point taking the risk going on high dose when you can get the same result with just 10mg to 20mg albeit slower but safer.
