44 yo, can't believe Accutane is the only option in 2016

Recommended Posts

I still have pretty bad acne, I'm a male and pretty sure it's hormonal.  I did a round of accutane and it was fine but I got cold feet on my second run because of the effect it has on the hippocampus. I just can't belive in 2016 that for cysts, that is the only option.  Now that I am older the deep scars are coming out.  I'm really torn on what to do...

Very well said. It's 2016. We sent humans to the moon like 50 years ago and they can't do anything for a cyst. It's immeasurably frustrating.

Right? I am in a high profile position and its just getting hard to deal with.  At the same time, I already worry about the long term effects from the first course I did.

I firmly believe that the skin care industry is worth too much money--billions-- for any 'cures' to be released.  Same thing for cancer.  Those corporations and conglomerates couldn't give a shit about your confidence and self-esteem.

Ha. Wouldnt it be something if its a really simple thing and they won't tell us? I mean I know acne is " complicated" but what its easy as supplementing what our body is lacking ( or making too much of)? Yeah Im cynical.
