@Sila Some people react poorly to Accutane (side effects). IT can be tough on the liver, kidneys, and a whole list of other side effects, look them up ;-) Depression is also a symptom with Accutane, It can mess with your hormone levels and of course you just had a kid(s) so that could be out of balance. 

Emil is a great Dr, I don't understand what the problem is. Yes he believes in Accutane, he is a Dr after all. 

Fly to Dr Lim if you wish. I don't get what Emil could not treat. Are you asking for your acne to be treated without Accutane, a bit unclear here. Why would it matter if they believe in the Accutane being the cause or not if they can treat the problem - scars. 

You sound like you need a general dermatologist not a procedural dermatologist. Have they tested your hormone levels for possible Spiro a drug for hormonal acne? Otherwise IPL could help, photo facials to kill the bacteria. I'd have to see a picture to know what I am recommending though.
