    I think you'll get accutane based on the amount of wounding and pie. 

    What do you mean lol? Sorry I’m slow

    So I go to the dermatologist in 11 days finally after waiting 6 weeks for a appointment, I have had my kind set on accutane for over a month of doing research and talking to people, and I can’t wait..... it’s my first appointment at a new dermatologist but not my first dermatologist.... I am going to (idk of this is right) “insist” her/him to put me on accutane.... and I really don’t want to go home without a fight.... I’m desperate... if I insist on accutane will they put me on accutane??

    Hi Matthew! I was desperate to be put on Accutane as well (mostly because my acne is cystic and is leaving marks, which is making me have low self-esteem). I am currently on Day 6 of my course. Are you in the UK or US? 
    I am in the US, how is your course going?

    I believe its up to the dermatologist. And just and FYI, my 17 year old son is on his 3rd month and is doing great. The only side effect he is experiencing is extremely dry lips. Other than that, his acne is slowly going away.  

    How bad was his acne?

    It will probably depends on

    severity of your acne
    The derm themselves 
    And how badly acne effects you mentally

    My derm suggested it as I have moderate adult acne. Also because I said it embarrassed me and I avoid certain social situations.

    You'll either be lucky with side effects or not. Some people just have minor effects like dryness, others get complications with back pains and worse.

    Depends on dosage as well. 
    I get a few painful pimples, I notice and can feel bumps on my face, i believe most “bumps” are causing the redness on my face, I have 4 cysts around my neck and I get a persistent cyst on my chest, I too am embarrassed and it emotionally stresses me out, it really gives me low self esteem and etc. ....

Usually when I have these a little layer of skin is over it and if u peel it blood and pus poor out.... just wondering if Its an extra bonus for getting on accutane with this?

  14. I have used multiple bp and salicylic acid products (proactiv, clean and clear, etc.), Retin a, differin, and have been on minocycline and doxycycline.

  15. I get few pimples and couple Whiteheads, some blackheads on nose, but I get cysts around my eyes and nose and under my neck, most aren’t noticeable but I can feel them..... I have red blemishes too
