So I am booked in to do my blood work this friday and I am looking forward to finally trying accutane. I will have to wait for over a month until I can start my course I wish I could start now!! I am pretty concerned about how I will look whil I am on it since I am in Business School and have many group projects and presentations... Any advice or suggestions? And is it just me or does everyone in University have immaculately groomed perfect skin (so jealous). The cysts on my neck and scalp have become extremely inflamed and lumpy and I can't help but jealously look at other peoples crystal clear necks grrrr!!!! Poor me haha. I hate always sitting in the back of lecture halls and feeling that it is necessary to wear shirts and sweaters with big collars to cover some of my acne up. Can anyone relate? I am praying that the Tane will put my cystic acne into remission for a long time... My mother took it and is trying to convince me that the side effects are not worth it... I could deal with a little bit but all over my neck is just too unsightly. I am wondering if anyone has any advice on Dosages?? I was wanting to try the low dose for an extended period but my Derm says that being that I am a pretty big guy 20mg's a day will not have a lasting effect, and is suggesting at least 80mg. Any thoughts from others who used these dosages?? I am also struggling with confidence since It seems that everyone I have met who was successful in the corporate world has realtively flawless skin. I know this isn't the most important thing in the world nor is it a rule without exception... it is just something that I one day have aspirations for and it seems more difficult to be taken seriously with teenage like cystic acne all over you body ya know? I am thinking of trying to manage my diest better and possibly getting back on the DKR hard again as it did help somewhat. Any comments, or questions are welcome! I am kind of hoping to make this a little forum for people who are suffering from the scalp acne or neck acne as it seems to be a different beast than facial or bacne any one had good results with accutane?? Good luck with your respective battles and stay posotive!!
