Any comments are great appreciation...

Do you think I should go on a round myself?

I've tried:

-Netrogena on the spot once a day

-5 % BP

-10% BP

-Benzagel

- Clindoxyl + differin

- Clindoxyl + differin + Minocin (those orange pills)

-The Regimen (very well applyed) for the last two months

-Water, water, WATER!

-And a perfect diet!

Still my acne is not all THAT bad, but it's bothering me, + more and more it seems like the red marks may come to scar (altough I'm unsure of this)... About 3 active at all time + more and more cyst ( on the regimen)...

My back is all full of red marks... + I've been getting acne on my chest and a little on the ARMS now also!

Before I went on the regimen I saw 2 derms who cursed me out of their office saying I didn't need it!

Now I can go see every single doctors in town till a get a prescription should I???

I'm sorry a have no webcam, so no pics...

Thx for all who can reply and vote!

Have yout tried Retin A, Differin, or Tazorac yet?

If you can get results from any of the above and avoid Accutane at least give it a shot.

I got good results with very little side effects. Just out of interest if 2 derms have refused to prescribe it to you how are you going to get it?

I did try Different... Little reasults over time...

And I will simply go ask every doctor in town until I do get the prescription...

Clear + good choice

I just wish I had went on it 5 years ago when I started breaking out. I'm 21 with clear skin and it feels wonderful when people tell me how good I look and how my skin cleared. The best decision I made in my life was to go on accutane and I couldnt be anymore happier with life right now I have 8 pills left and after that I'm done with my course!!
