So firstly let me get this straight, I have mild/moderate acne when its at its worst.. but I scar horrifically or I am left with PIH, which is going to take roughly a year to fade. I am fed up with never being able to leave the house with a full-face of foundation and I just want to go back to the skin I had 3 months ago...

Currently I am taking Isotrexin, which is a topical gel that contains isotretinoin which has been effective as I had a horrendous breakout for stress. Now I only have around 2 active pimples at a time but I do have very small closed comedones, which easily become inflamed. 

I understand accutane is for serious cases for acne, but you also have to weigh the psychological impacts of acne, and for me the scarring is a big deal.

However, I am also willing to try other remedies before I make the big jump - I have never tried antibiotics?

Please let me know what you think.
