And you thought you had it bad...

So I'm new to this website and as I was going through pictures whenI decided to make an album of my accutane journey. The thing I noticed the most was how most people have acne on their face. Well, let me be the first to tell you, I WISH I HAD IT ONLY ON MY FACE! Try having is on your chest, back, and some of the craziest places anyone has heard of! Examples you ask? Ears, arms, thighs... Oh yeah!

Not the best feeling in the world when you're unable to wear a bathing suit not because of you're fear of thick hips and tummy but acne on your back and chest.

    From the album:

    Before Accutane (God willing it works!)

    Trust me, I know how you feel..

    I've always wondered myself why my body suffered with more severe acne than my face..

    Accutane will help you a lot.

    Do you mean that you also have acne on your back, your arms and your hips? And is it as severe as on your poor chest?

    And you have nothing on your face?

    Anyway, you can be sure that accutane will clear this up soon.

    Everything is relative. I think it is still less of a problem for a girl, even in bathing suit, to have acne on the chest and back than to have thick hips and tummy.

    accutane will most likely work but take time of course.

    my suggestion: use dove sensitive skin cream body wash with a gentle poof thing.

    good luck

    trust me, I know EXACTLY how you feel about having it everywhere. Luckily for me, the accutane has healed my chest, arms and back the best so far *knocks on wood* and are almost completely clear. My face didnt clear quite as quickly, but Im only in my 3rd month.

    Good Luck! and buy lots of aquaphor for your lips!

    I know how you feel too !

    I had acne on my face, back and chest. Now only scars are left on my chest. But realllyyy big ones! I got a scar after each pimple i got on accutane. Now that im done, i can't wait for them to fade away...its so hard to hide them.

    Good luck with accutane! It worked so well for me...

    my back and chest looked exactly like yours. I took accutane in 2006 and it went away...then it came back and I am now on my second round and it is pretty much gone, I still get like 1 or 2 every month, but when it looks like yours (and mine), one or two is a blessing...

    Accutane works for sure :D even for the worst cases...
