    Frustrated With Derm

    I did say that they were new but he just wasn't listening, he (and the nurse) were very patronising... maybe they think I'm making a big deal out of nothing, my skin is not as bad as some people's, but it's still affecting me in the same way, and it is just as persistent as others. Thanks for your reply

    Frustrated With Derm

    Hi all,I am currently 2 months into my accutane course. I am taking 20mg/day and I weigh between 52-53kg. I visited the nhs derm last week and he said that my skin was looking good and I may only have to do a 4 month course. However he only gave my skin a brief glance and said that I had no active acne... a massive lie! that day I had 2 new cysts on my left cheek as well as some on my back, as well as blackheads on my nose, chest and back. Is my derm blind or optimistic? My acne isn't severe how

    Thank you for replying! I think that my gp may put me on mino after doxy, which I don't really want because I always become resistant to antibiotics and the acne eventually gets worse, however I think that my doctor wants to exhaust every antibiotic before considering something more serious. I've considered accutane a lot, at first I was really worried about the side effects but as my skin gets worse I am warming up to the idea, however I have family history of depression/ bipolar so would I be
  5. Hi After stalking this site I have decided to sign up so I can finally ask for help about what to do with my acne. Here's a brief history of my skin: At age 10 I started to get blackheads around my nose and on my chin which have never gone away. Age 11- started getting the occasional whitehead, had constant white spots on the apples of my cheeks age 12- got lots of red spots on my forehead, chin, in the summer I developed chest and back acne which still remains. age 13- went on tetracycline
