I Have Acne Prone/oily Skin, Bp Didn't, Neither Did Minocycline Antibiotics. Derm Appointment In 2 Weeks, What Can I Expect?

Recommended Posts

hey guys, im 19yo male

so i have EXTREMELY oily skin, which is acne prone and has lots of red scars

for years now, ive been using benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics,etc. but my skin condition has been getting worse, never better.

ive been to my derm twice, and both times he prescribed me benzac cream with antibiotics, only the second time he gave me one with adapalene :S

it didnt work

im going to see him again in 2 weeks, what can i expect from him? accutane? retin A?

i cant take my skin condition no more, its unbelievably annoying, and people always ask me whats wrong with it. not once in my life yet have i been able to shave my face smoothly with no worries. theres always nasty bits of acne somewhere bleed, etc. ive been using clipper for the past year, its beginning to ruin me.

should i demand accutane from my derm. im looking for permanent solution!
