  1. Thanks so much Heidi! I know how difficult it is to find a derm that's at least a little bit more sympathetic and understanding. My derm just prescribed me with a dose of Roaccutane which caused the scar in the first place! What are your scars like? Have you found hope in the latest treatments?
  2. I keep hearing about TCA complex for scars and it sounds as though many of the users have had good results! I've just got an indentation (looks like a shallowish icepick scar) from unfortunately picking at a spot on my cheek while on Roaccutane. It really bothers me and I was wondering how long after I finish Roaccutane can I treat it with a TCA peel? Also will it hopefully settle and maybe fill up on it's own?
  3. Can anyone please recommend me to a good dermatologist in London, England? And not Dr Chu as he has a waiting list until Sept-Oct! I've decided to stop seeing mine as he's not good at all...

  6. Hi all, I really need some advice on cortisone injections. I'm currently on a mild dose of roaccutane (20mg a day) and I've developed a cyst on my chin. Now I've never had cystic acne in my life and I reckon that the chances are the Roaccutane has done this to me! I went to see my derm a couple of days ago and he said that he needs it to be injected with a cortisone injection for it to heal. I've already unfortunately picked at it when it first came up and left a red mark which is still th

  9. Thanks so much for the support! Rupert, I checked out the accutane action website and I honestly didn't realise how many people had suffered from taking this drug. It was a miracle cure for me the first two times however maybe a third time was too much for my body to take! I also can't believe that my derm prescribed them to me again without even bothering to do liver tests or blood tests or even checking that I had a history of depression in the past. How long did it take for your skin to re
  10. I'm now on my third course of Roaccutane and I can truly say that it probably was one of the worst mistakes! It cleared my skin dramatically when I had severe acne in my teens however now being in my late twenties with mild acne I was once again (stupidly!) prescribed Roaccutane. I've developed one very large red bump on my chin which seems like a cyst (I never had cystic acne) and a pitted scar on my cheek from regretfully picking at an existing spot. (I had never scarred before even when I
