18yo Acne advice needed

Recommended Posts

I'm 18yo and have been struggling with acne on my face,chest and back for the past 4 years. My scars are already clearly visible.

Since I live in the UK it's hard to get Accutane treatment as you need to go through a lot of antibiotics first. I went to a private dermatologist in Poland and he said that Accutane is the only thing that will help me after doing some tests. Unfortunately I was only there for 2 week holiday therefore couldn't' get an Accutane prescription.

What shall I do? I want to get rid of my acne ASAP as it does have an impact on my confidence, especially the body acne.

In cases like yours Accutane might be your best choice. Nothing is a sure fire way to get rid of acne as it will always take time for it to get better. You will probably experience big breakouts in the beginning before it gets better. For a derm if you pay for one im sure you could fit into appointment for that week. If your relying on insurance will take months. My derm costed like 110 or 150 for a appointment.
