  1. Hello there, I never though I would arrive to this point but you'll find out why. Long story short : been suffering since 10th grade, I'm now 2nd year in college. I have them all over my face and they're absolutely horrible but I always had a positive attitude, and they never brought me down. Social effects : lots of friends , only girl problems, I don't want them to be with me looking like that, so I don't bother trying. Psychological : at first I had a negative attitude towards th
  2. So i went to my GP for acne problems. its nothing severe but its VERY persistent. i've been going to him for years and getting different antibiotics which just do not work. He's just referred me to the hospital and the appointment is the end of october and i just dont want to wait that long ESPECIALLY if at the hospital he says he cant do anything. its got the point where i wont go into shops because all of them have massive mirrors and I HATE seeing the inflammation and redness and the spots, i

    Need Help

    Hi I am 14 and a half years old and have started to get acne quite bad, most of the time i have only had 1 or 2 pimples here or there but recently, i started getting it worse and worse and have tried proactive clean and clear, home remedies, everything but nothing has been working we went to the dermatologist 2 months ago and i got prescribed doxycline, and it has done nothing for me, i have had two big cystic pimples on my cheeks for about 2 months now they just wont go away, there are about 5
  4. Hi all, It's been a while since I posted on here but thought i'd not only update on my situation but I also have a few questions and would love some other's perspectives or experiences. In October 2012, I was signed off form my job in recruitment for a few weeks with anxiety and depression and it was around this time that my acne got particularly bad, and has been bad ever since. I ended up handing in my notice and giving up the job altogether. I moved home for a bit and left my flat in
  5. I'm Erin and I started my daily 20mg dose of roaccutane on 11th November 2013. I'm not going to bore you with how my acne looks, how I feel about my acne and how long I've suffered with it for because besides the fact you're probably all in the same boat as me, it's depressing enough having to think about it never mind having to type it out for you all to read! So yeah, just some general questions really for people who have experienced "life on accutane..." I have now been on roaccutan
  6. Hi everybody, I am a 19 year old girl on Roaccutane for the first time. My acne was moderate, cystic and extremely painful. In the past I had tried everything - basic over the counter washes, benozyl peroxide, topical vitamin A, antibiotics, birth control pills etc. Nothing got rid of my acne - the birth control pills did reduce it at first, in conjunction with an antibiotic, however it just came back a few months later. I have had acne since I was about 12, so its been quite a long, miserab
  7. Hello everyone. Not sure where to start really. 6 days ago I went to a dermatologist for the first time in my life. I am 17 and have had acne since I was about 15. recently it started getting quite bad. I had tried many options including basically all the over the counter medicine, 2 different types of anti-biotic, massive diet change and differin. The most effective of these methods was actually the diet change. I cut down on dairy and carbs and my acne really started to go away and the redness
  8. So, today is the day when I start my course of Roaccutane! I went to the dermatologist today and picked up my first prescription, i'm using the actual brand name Roaccutane, not a generic brand which I feel much better about. I'm on 30mg a day for the first two months, then getting my dosage ramped up; I weigh around 8 and a half stone which equals just over 50kgs, so I guess my final dosage will be 50 or 60 mg a day towards the end, and i've been told my course will last a minimum of 4 months.
  9. Hello everyone! I'm unsure whether anyone will be interested in actually reading my log but if not, it'll be useful for me anyways! It's still early days, I'm only about a month and a half into my accutane course so I haven't logged since day one which sucks but better late than never, right?! I absolutely love this community because it has helped me so much in the past and I know what it's like to google things every 10-20 minutes and land yourself on this website reading if someone else is

  11. I had typical teenage acne, then a few blissful clear years in my late teens, early 20s, before my acne came back. Since then I've done two rounds of Roaccutane and am considering my third. I always just believed it would go away on it's own, and it's devastating to think that it won't. What's more, after my first round of Roaccutane my skin was *perfect*. But after the second one (it took me years to get a doctor who would even do it private) it just doesn't look the same. I was so naïve
  12. Hi I'm Lex and I have been taking Accutane for 2 Months now. My acne has been controlled from day one of the pills, it almost feels too good to be true. I haven't experienced any serious side effects such as; depression, confusion, stress or any other mental side effects, for which I am grateful. I have some tips on the less serious side effects. I have experienced dry skin, scarring, dry hair and liver discomfort, all of which I have been able to control with my routine, which is why I thought
  13. So my roaccutane journey begins here. I have hesitated to take this but I though I'll give it a go , sick and tired of myself and trying to treat acne for 4-5 years. So Today 04/12/13 I have gotten my tablets from the pharmacy it's a 2 month dose , If all goes well I will receive another 2 month dose after and my treatment should be done in 4 month since my dose is high "70mg" wasn't so sure about that but I hope I won't get too many side effects and that I can carry on training. Day 1/122 :
  14. Here's my plight!!! It's long so bear with me. I've had acne for about five years now. I'm currently in my junior year of high school. While my acne isn't severe or cystic, every single pimple I get causes hyperpigmentation and I have a dark mark on my face for weeks (if I'm super lucky) or months (normal). I have plenty of comedomes on my cheeks which often get inflamed and cause the spot to turn red and fill with pus. After they pop, they leave a HUGE black mark and often times the same spot w
  15. So, I am finally starting this long journey but for all the right reasons and with the end result firmly stuck in my head for when I am thinking to myself 'Why am I doing this!?' Everyone loves a bit of background so here goes... I've had acne since I was about 13 (now 20), I've been on all the usual antibiotics and topicals. Lymecycline worked but I grew immune to its effects. Erythromycin in both pill and topical form again just didn't have any long term effects, I either grew immune or it

    My Accutane Progress

    This is the first time I have posted about my accutane experience since starting treatment, I just wanted to share with other accutane users how far i've come as I enter my 4th Month, currentlt 143 days to be precise, and as you can see I haven't a single active spot on my face, it is all dominated by slight redness and left over red marks from breakouts. Overall though I am thrilled with my skin and I cant wait to finish treatment so that I can get rid of the left over marks ). Hope this helps
  17. Okay well, I've been on Accutane (Roaccutane for me cause I'm in Ireland) for 18 days now and I decided to make a log for people who are considering going on the drug or that are on the drug and what to get tips or info that I can give! So anyways, I'm a 19 year old male and I've had oily skin and acne since I was like 13/14. I got really bad acne including nodules and really oily skin, so oily people would comment on it sometimes! I tried many oral and topical treatments to try get rid of my
  18. Hey guys, I'm currently on Roaccutane and am really really pale, which means that every single bit of hyperpigmentation (and there is a lot) is on full show. I'm so pale you can even see veins! I used to go to the sunbeds once a week for like 5 minutes before I started (not a lot at all) to just keep up a slight tan, however, this is obviously not really doable... I'm not a massive fan of spray tans as I find they are just far too messy, and especially on Roaccutane with the dry skin it ju

    4th course of Roaccutane

    Hi, im about to start my 4th course of Roaccutane. I was first prescribed it when I was 18, then when I was 21, 26, and now 8 months after my last course I'm being prescribed it again. Has anyone else had to have this many courses? ive heard of people being clear after their third course but I'm really disheartened that I'm having to take it again!!!! And also the fact it's not even been a year since I last took it. Unfortunately nothing else seems to be able get rid of it. Natalie
  20. Hey guys, I was thinking of booking an appointment with Sk:n who said they can offer Roaccutane. Would I be able to get it prescribed privately, then pay for prescriptions/get blood work done on the NHS?
  21. Hi, Just wondering if anyone has any experience of using heat pads whilst taking accutane? I'm talking about the kind of 'peel n stick' ones that heat up once they are exposed to air and you stick them on to your body. I tend to get shoulder / neck pain and they really help, but I'm a bit hesitant to use them once I start accutane, as I understand the skin can become a lot more sensitive. So.. reaching out - has anyone used them while on accutane? Or if you think it would be fine or a terrible
  22. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and to Accutane (Roaccutane in the UK). I'm on 30mg a day and have just I completed my first month, I had my blood work done on Monday for my monthly check up. Lately I can't help but notice how full I've been without eating. I've been eating a minimul amount everyday not through choice and have read that a lack of appetite can be linked to liver problems. As we know, Accutane is processed by the liver so I'm a little scared that the Accutane could be doing some
  23. I'm male and 17 years old. I've been on 40 mg a day for the past 6 months and finish the course next week. Will my skin continue to get better, or is this the best it can be? When my other friends finished their course they had completely clear skin, but I still have lots of red marks (almost looks like spots under skin) although my face is completely smooth. (See photo) If my skin won't improve further naturally, is there anything I can do to improve it?
  24. Hi im a 17 year old girl and ive had acne for the past 4 years but ive been getting spots since ive been 11. Its the usual story, ive tried everything including zinteryt, benzoyl peroxide, duac, lymecycline, tetracyline ( been on antibiotics for the past 2 years) and also differin cream and 3 types of birth control. My acne was never on my cheeks until i started using birth control and now its only gotten progressively worse. Ive tries microgynon which gave me headaches, the implant which made t
  25. hi, so I've been struggling with acne since I was about 13, but recently it has flared up as a result of the birth control pill that I started in late June-early July. I've been on 5 different medications that have all failed (duac, zineryt, differin, oxytetracycline and lymecycline), switched to a vegan diet in April and plus have tried every single over-the-counter method (like everyone). yet nothing is working! I exercise regularly (dancing and occasional running and gym) yet I still look
