I need honest advise for my severe acne and the scars


I had severe acne since I was 13 years old, Im turning 20 this year. Due to some personal circumstances, the acne was not treated earlier.

I have been looking around online for a few years now and read that accutane is able to permanently cure this, however it was also mentioned that there are pretty nasty side effects. Along the years, I had accumulated many scars all over my face (refer to attached pictures), and I have to serve in the compulsory military stint for 2 years for my country soon, which I suspect might further worsen my condition.

Can anyone provide me with honest feedbacks and advices on what I can do now to treat all these acne and especially all the scars. I am going on accutane treatment referred by dermatologist as soon as I have the money and I want to know realistically how much my scars can heal and what I can do to prevent them from worsening from my upcoming military service.


Thank you!

Have you tried giving up dairy entirely? That worked for me big time. Plus very low sugar intake I do as well. There's scar medication out there like Medirma I think it's called that's helped me. TreeActive is another good one too. I hope this helps you!

Watch your diet man like @onemanwarrior34 had mentioned.

Try eliminating dairy, sugars, grains are huge as well. Also processed foods. Switch to a more organic and holistic diet!! 

Hope this helps!! Keep us updated
