Thank you for reading my blog! My name is Kristen, I am 13 and I have sever acne. My acne is on my chest, neck, face and all down my back. The acne on my face is on my forehead, nose, chin and cheeks. The acne I have is blackheads, whiteheads, pustules and the under-skin kind that hurt! My acne is genetic and I absolutely hate it! I feel unconfident and hideous, and want this stuff gone! The products I have tried [including prescribtions] are listed below:
That is all I can think of for now. I know I've tried more!
So today, I had a dermatologist appt. with my doctor, Dr. Gruber. Most recntly I had been using Retin-A, Duac and minocycline without any luck. Everything she's given me has spread it. Recently, a friend of ours had told us about an acne product he had used, and gotten great sucess. Accutane. Or Isoterin to others. With happiness, and some sadness, Dr. Gruber told me we were going to use accutane. I was sad, because I know the risks, procedures and that my acne must be pretty bad. But I was happy knowing the great sucess many people have had with the treatment. So with the awkwardness, I gave them a urine sample (sorry "T.M.I"!), signed the iPledge saying I would not get pregnant and then scheduled my next appointment. I am going back on December 11th, 2008 to do the pregnancy test, have blood drawn and begin my first round of Accutane!!! Until then I don't think I will be posting anything... but I'm sure I'll be getting on, commenting other blogs and connecting with other people. But enough about the acne! Let me give you some info on me!
As I said, my name is Kristen and I am 13. I am a proud vegetarian. My favorite number is 4, animal is zebra and color is pink. I am bubbly, confident, blonde, funny, TALKATIVE and dramatic. My hobbies are writing, theatre (I LOVE DRAMA), talking, sewing, drawing and just living life. Muse is my favorite band and Twilight is my favorite book series. I have celeb crushes on Robert Pattinson and Johnny Depp :] I want to be a broadcast journalist when I grow up and I absolutely love the movie Sweeney Todd. It is my absolute favorite movie! Well, I have to go watch my favorite show... House!
