Day 5. Front

So, I'm still contemplating whether or not to start taking Accutane. My derm. did say that he thought it would work well for me, but I'm just a little concerned about the side-effects. Plus, I'd have to start taking birth control and well, I'm not exactly thrilled about that.

In the meantime, I'm going to stick with my current regimen and see what happens. Hopefully, this horrible problem will be resolved within a few weeks so I can start feeling good about myself again.

I have noticed that I have not had any new blemishes form since I've been using a stronger form of BP and with the antibiotics so that's great news. I've also noticed that most of the active blemishes I did have on day one are now drying up. I only have two right now that are still pus-filled so it seems like it's working.

The bad thing is, that once this is all said and done - I'm going to have really bad scarring so I'm already brasing myself for some type of treatment such as a chemical peel or dermabrasion.

Guess I'll just keep truckin' along and see what happens. wacko.png

      I went on accutane and it was sweet, I paid for about $1600 for it and it was worth it.
