  1. I'm just thinking if the topical tretinoin helps regenerate collagen and even out scars could accutane do the same because it is an oral version of a retiniod? has anyone had that experience that it has helped? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10886272
  2. Thanks for your help. I do have sensitive skin and don't want to risk any nightmares that you speak of. have scheduled a consultation with Dr. Rullan in a few months - hoping my acne will better under control by then, if not will reschedule.
  3. Thanks for your response. I have been trying to treat my acne with topicals as well as hormone include spironolactone that last few years - no luck. I have not been on accutane for a couple years until last month. I live in the Bay area CA , and am not able to travel to a place like Australia for treatment. let me know if you know any good doctors in my area. what type of peel did you do on accutane? you said it was a bad experience i'm just curious so i do not make the same mistake.
  4. I have been on several courses of accutane, and have a case hormonal acne so stubborn that my derm has now prescribed a low dose 10/mg a day accutane. i have only been doing this month so far but because i have no time line to get off of it (and i know that within a year i'd most likely begin breaking out again) I am wonder if and how are the best way to treat scars? I've read recent studies claiming people on accutane heal normally from superficial peel and nonablative lasers. wondering if this

    New type of acne...

    Open wound type burning cracking skin around the spot...any advice or sound familier. it's hard to cover with make up because the area is so flakey looking.

    Accutane suicide thoughts help

    Anyone's comments here are likely based on opinion and anacdote. Accutane effects everyone differently in a mental capacity as well as physical. It certainly does change the way the body functions on an internal level and that can definitely effect mood etc. I'm sorry to anyone who has suffered from side effects brought on by accutane.
  7. I can definitely relate.I'm 21and I've also struggled with being suicidal and depression, I also have a twin who is clear ... it feels really unfair and it's hard not to compare. I'm sorry you're going through this, no one deserves this.

    Glad to hear you're doing so much better! I've definitely seen improvement. Not clear but 50% better. Probably would be better if I didn't didn't pick so I feel ya there. Thanks for the advice/recommendations!

    what type of sulfur do you use?
  10. Hey! I sent you a message, hope you're doing alright.
  11. I agree. feeling embarrassed bc of my acne is so isolating , I have no friends who understand that.
  12. Ugh. I'm sorry. I have a big cyst on my forehead right now where I never break out. how are you coping emotionally, any tips?
  13. Today is so bad, been inside all day with so much anxiety. My face won't stop breaking out and I can't stop picking. I don't know what to do I just want to die. I feel so alone.
  14. So sorry you're feeling self conscious, I'm a women interested other women and I wouldn't even judge someone for their acne - in fact I feel a lot more attracted to women who don't have perfect skin. I think it's partially because I've had acne and It's nice to have some one that gets it. Go for it!
