  2. Hi Green Gables, Thank you for the insight. I will look into the hormonal aspect of acne. I was put on Accutane when it first came out in 1980 and I wish I never used that drug. The side effects were awful to say the least. My skin never returned to normal after 2 years of Accutane and Teracycline treatments. Now, 30 years later, my skin remained forever damaged from the effects of accutane and tetracycline.

I only hope and pray that they don't inherit that from me. However, if they do I want to be prepared. Regards, Bassbaritone
