Dermatologist Appointment

Postby SweetCheeks79 on Sun Jul 22, 2018 8:05 pm

Hi all, found this forum through the nhs choices website. I am 39 & have suffered with acne since I was 12. Tried numerous lotions, potions, tablets, roaccutane 5 times and currently on the pill and metformin for pcos. I saw my GP 3 mths ago about my skin
He wasn't helpful but did agree to refer me to a dermatologist which I have an appointment for tomorrow. I want to try retin a, spironolactone and or a combination of antibiotics. Has anyone had any luck getting their acne under control with that combination?? I'm not expecting a "cure" as I think that would have happened already. My hormones must be all over the place!
