I finished a treatment of accutane I think about a year ago now at least. About 3 months after taking accutane, my skin was nearly flawless, I was soo so happy. I only had one scar because of a major cyst I had that lasted forever and I still have it. after about 3 months of pure happiness, I started getting about 1 minor zit a day, very very mild acne. That lasted a long time until about 2 weeks ago. 2.5 months ago I got a girl friend when I was totally normal looking acne wise. We took a picture of us close up and my skin was seriously flawless, it looked like I never have had major acne ever. These past 2 weeks I have gotten more acne then I really want (haha). Or better yet, that I can handle. I have not used bp in a long time, mostly because it makes my skin really dry and I absolutly hate how moisturiser makes my skin look during the day, and moisturising at night is not enough to curb the dryness. I wash everyday, once a day now, and my skin gets dry enough.

So my plan now is to make an appointment with my very friendly derm to hopefully get another accutane treatment. If I showed you guys a picture of me, you would think I am crazy for thinking that I need another treatment, but I really just want to get this over with and not have to worry about it anymore. I just hate the way it makes me feel and act, it makes me all depressed and it's all I can think about, even when I have like 3-4 regular zits.

I am going to tell my derm that I have tried retin-a, tazorac, minocyclean (spelling?) and a few other prescription tropicals with no avail. Also that I have tried quite a few over the counter tropicals. Acne gets better before it gets worse, I'll say anything for her to perscribe me more.

My girlfriend found some of my acne stuff in the bathroom when she was looking for toliet paper. She said that I "don't even have acne" or something like that. razz.gif
