I have used multiple bp and salicylic acid products (proactiv, clean and clear, etc.), Retin a, differin, and have been on minocycline and doxycycline.

Seems like you have a lot of PIE. Do you pick and squeeze your acne or does it always leave red marks/wounding regardless if you do or not?

Check out the hyperpigmentation forum and the pinned post at the top on how to treat it. 

Accutane is a good option as you mentioned you still get breakouts and cysts.. Definitely discuss with your derm.

I would say it depends how it effects you.

I have been messing around with all creams and go knows what for far too long and nothing has worked properly. For me it started to effect my mood and social life and I decided to go onto Accutane, after 3 years id had had enough so.

If you think its effecting you then id say go for it and the side effects will be well worth it. If your nothing bothered and you don't care probably not worth looking into.

Mines moderate, I get maybe 3/4 spots a time on both sides of my face. It was enough for it to bother me, I was quite social before lots of going out and stuff and I became too self conscious and that why I decided to go on Accutane.

been on it 10 days and having my breakout now but I know it’s gonna be worth it as ib July I hope to be clear so can’t wait. Before I was trying stuff knowing dam well it probably wasn’t going to work
