I Have An Appointment With A Dermatologist Next Week (To Get Accutane) And My Acne Is Clearing Up

Recommended Posts

darnit!!!!!! Just two weeks ago my face was the worst its ever been in a year. So I was thinking "he's sure to give me accutane" but I've been taking temporary oral antibiotics (given by my family doctor to hold me over till the appointment) and I'm clearing up :/

I've taken these anti biotics before and after 5 months, they stopped working and my acne came back, and my family doctor knows this. I've taken BP and antiobiotics over 3 years now, and nothing.

what do I do? will the dermatologist not think I'm a candidate for accutane even though I've been dealing with acne with prescription medication for 4 years and still nothing?

My friend who barely had any bumps almost got put on accutane, so your dermatologist may be the same way her dermatologist is. If you explain that the antibiotics stop working after a while I'm sure he'll put you on accutane, or something that will help.
