  1. haha true that! Although I don't want to get your hopes up, accutane is most likely going to work, unlike all those other topicals! what do you currently use? Yeah, and then you spend every morning for like 4 months running to the mirror expecting something to have changed all the sudden before you accept that it won't and crawl back to the doctors for something new... I really hope accutane will be the end of that for good. To answer your question... I was on Differin and Dianette, but Diff

  3. Hi! Do you remember me! You gave me advice on my post! For the nose - I've heard a lot of people put vaseline/aquaphor up there on cutips. ^^^ I feel in any other context that would sound really creepy.

  5. Yeah... I really get that knowledge thing. Even though I'm waiting I feel better because I know that something is getting done about it. Especially since my skin has started to get a little worse in the last couple of days. I can't believe how patient you are - I don't know if I could wait! Especially if I had it in the house... I was thinking about the antibiotic - I'm planning to ask for it, but I'm not sure how generous the NHS will be... lol. Thanks for your reply. Strangley I don't reme
  6. Yeah, my mum is really advocating it. She says I'll regret it if I don't and that whatever sideffects I get she'll help me deal with them. I just want to start it now and get it over with!!!! Haha.
  7. Thanks, its a really good site!
  8. I have, and they obviously think I should as they suggested it. I was really just looking for people who themselves have been through it and whether or not my concerns were justified - my derm is a little... old fashioned, and just blows me off with "but that is such a RARE side effect" etc. I know rare side effects, for me they are just side effects. Thanks though

  11. Girl, I got an update: I was at work today and this kid approaches me and says: "Oh you have something on your neck..." At first I was confused, so I touched the area that he was talking about and realized that he was referring to my acne... I was so mad but I could not lose my temper cause of work (UGHHHH). I am sure he knew it was acne but he had to emphasize it. Kids are def. the worst. I was a Scout Leader and got it all the time "why are you spotty?" "do you have chicken pox?" Urrggg. To b
  12. Thanks so much... I am leaning towards it. I have stocked up on all the supplements that are good for hair/collagen production so that it won't cause too much damage even if it does flare up. Its mainly an emotional thing for me - I think it is for most. I just know that I am so much happier when my skin is clear/clearer. I am such a different person. While its OK right now, I just know what a mess my skin will be when October rolls around... anything I can do to stop that... Where you on a
  13. I think personally two things have hurt me the most 1. The school nurse who pointed out how "horrible" my skin looked and how painful it must be. I hadn't cared up until then - she forced me to the doctor's office (for useless antibiotics) and have had a complex ever since. 2. When I found out that a group of my oldest/closest friends had been making fun of my skin every time I left the room. This had been going on for ages. I only found out about it because some of my other friends hap
  14. I really do. I'm used to the "you must use this persistently for 6 months before any results will seen" line. Thanks for replying
  15. After reading this thread I just wanted to drop in and let you know that as an 18-year-old girl, acne scars on guys are definantly not a "put-off" - the rugged look is actually quite hot not to seem creepy or anything. I know it must be very upsetting for you, but we don't really care at all. Honest. You seem like a really nice person, and that will get you further in life than most anything else.
