Accutane Next Month? Advice?

Recommended Posts

hey guys, another quick log for ya's. basic info, age 16, 17 next month, acne on face chest and back, aspiring bodybuilder. my derm wants to avoid accutane use and only for a last resort because he doesnt want it affecting my training and its a very harsh drug. however, we will find out it a month if i will need it. theres 1 thing left we havent tried, and that is tazorac cream .1%. did tazorac .05 this month, some results but i guess not enough. i personally do not mind the accutane as long as it clears me up. my only concerns are the initial break out, because i do have a girlfriend, and we have talked about having sex in the near future. i dont want her to leave me for the terrible acne on my face, of the acne on my chest and back revealed during sex, but i will also be sure to be safe during tratment and maybe no interocurse at all for the fear of creating a hideous mutant because of the accutane. my other concern is losing muscle. i worked really hard for the muscle mass ive put on, and dont want to set my self back. good body w/ bad acne, or decent average body no acne? my obsession with bodybuilding makes it hard. my insecurity because of the acne makes it hard as well. i also cant show off my body because of the body acne...so any thoughts guys?
