Getting depressed and discouraged!!! in The Acne.org Regimen Posted April 10, 2003 I went to see a dermatologist once, but he gave me this medication that I had to apply topically. I had to mix color in with it to make it my skin color. I didn't even apply it once. It was too much of a hassle. I don't really see what a dermatologist could do for me, since they can't help so many other people. If this was something that I knoew that they could help me with I would go, but I know that all they can do is make it better, not cure it, and a cure is what I am looking for.
