After about 25 years of trying what seems like everything to try and be free of chronic acne, I asked my dermatologist for a second attempt with Accutane. It took about 3 days before I was able to get the medication. In the meantime, the doctor had also prescribed Mupirocin, a topical antibiotic ointment. After only just 2 days, I experienced greater healing than I have ever had with any other treatment! I picked up the Accutane, but I have not started taking it, and at this point, I don't see any reason to do so. It has been 2 weeks since I began using the Mupirocin, and I have not had a single new blemish! This is HUGE for me! I was averaging about 4-6 new pimples EVERY SINGLE DAY... To go for 2 weeks without a single new one has been life changing for me! My face no longer burns when washing it. It no longer hurts to smile, talk, eat, etc. Seriously! Why didn't any of the doctors give this to me sooner?! I cannot even begin to tell you how relieved I am, and how much hope this have given me that I may actually FINALLY be done with acne!! I know I still have a lot of hyperpigmentation from years of my face being so inflamed, but I think in time that will fade.
