1st Appointment with Derm - At Last !

After a fair few years of antibiotics, topicals, bcp, vitamin supps, etc etc my doctor finally decided it was time i saw a derm!! so I forked out the £100 for a private consult (beats waiting 3-4 months tho)

my derm had asked me my age, occupation and insurance company before i'd even sat down! she then looked at me, started her notes in her file and wrote out a note for my doc (for a script) - she says my acne is bad (i got rated a '6' in terms of badness - woohoo) and that roaccutane will work for me - i will be starting in about a month.

She gave me a script for acnisal wash and differin to use for the next month - she also told me NOT to moisturise! :o no moisturiser?!? Im thinking these meds will prepare my skin for the roaccutane? Anybody? I have visions of my face peeling off.....

ANyway, my face broke out again over the weekend which p****d me off so i guess its time to prepare to try the wonder drug.....

Watch out for some 'lovely' pictures in my log :lol:

Feel better already !
