Accutane for mild but very persistent acne

Postby Mohammad1123 on Fri Jul 06, 2018 2:41 am

Hi ive had 3 different antibiotics for acne currently on lyemecyline for a yr. Although my acne is mild but it's very persistent and it's really effecting me. I've got a dermatologist appointment and want to ask for accutane. I'm litterly scared to look in the mirror although it's mild its really effecting me. I'm scared that he will not give me accutane and say it's not too worse. But I've been on antibiotics for yrs and 3 different ones and I'm at the same point when i took the very 1st tablet. My question is can i get accutane as I've tried 3 antibiotics and I'm pretty sure lyemecyline is one of the strongest. I've tried 1 topical yrs ago but was not good on my skin so I don't want them again. Thanks
