Accutane For Mainly Acne Marks And A Few Whiteheads(Mild Acne)

Recommended Posts

Shoud l use accutane for my mild acne? My doctor prescribed me retinoid+benzoyl peroxide and an antibiotic but when i went to see him 2 weeks later he thinks I should go on accutane or else I will get more scarring. However I read that accutane should only be used for severe cystic acne and I mainly have smooth red marks and a few whiteheads. I already have a few scars. The retinoid and antibiotic made it a bit smoother and most of the pain is gone but I heard that the accutane is very effective although the side effects are very severe. Do you think it's worth taking the risk of using Accutane? Are there other alternatives to Accutane?

Thank you very much and I wish you all luck with your acne or whatever problems you have with life. Stay positive, it will get better :)
