good evening all
hello, i am philip and i am in the uk.
im in a bit of a sticky situation, and i would greatly appreciate some guidance from you all.
ive been on almost every doctor prescribed medicine, creams, tablets, you name it. but… none have worked. yesterday, i went to a dermatologists, and i was told that roaccutane is the next step forward, almost guaranteeing success.
now, i think myself as a reasonably sound person mentally, and i am not prone to depressiopn or anything like that.
but, i am on chinese herbal medicine at the moment, and it seems to be, slowly, making improvements.
however, i am reluctant to start roaccutane, as i have my GCSEs in the next 2 months, and i quite obviously dont want to be depressed or anxious during these VERY important exams. so… the big queston is… do you think i should go on roaccutane and risk the depression, or should i stick with the chinese stuff until after the exams?
the problem is, is that i will be starting a new school in 5 months, and i want to make a good first impression, for obvious reasons, but if i leave it until after the exams, i wont be ‘clear’
so… waddaya think?????????
thanks alot, cheers
