OK, basically i took Kelly’s advice (Hi Kelly :angel ) and booked myself in with a private derm at the Bupa hospital in Bushey in the hope of getting Accutane prescribed!
Iv tried everything on the face of the planet, from Herbals, B5, Creams, Antibiotics to Lasers! and nothings really worked…
so Accutane is really my last hope..
I dont have Cystic acne, but its Presistant, i get white heads and pastuls and they always leave my skin Red..
I used to think that the redness was due to Rosace, but i was wrong.
When i was on the Cepphalexine antibiotics, they cleared my skin up and the redness was beginning to fade untill i stopped the antis.. What i realised was that the Cephalexins job is to kill the acne bacteria, hence no acne and red marks fading, so it must be acne and not rosacea….
anyway, what i want is some help, please
Im not really prepered and dont know what to expect… I understand the acne usually gets worse b4 it gets better….
but im kind of confused.. if Accutane kills the sebum glands, then the acne bacteria is still there under the skin right? so does that mean that my skin will still be red due to the acne still being there? or does accutane clear that up too?
i want to quote something mod said once:
Can acne leave the skin just red, like acne bacteria just sitting under the skin?
yes it’s called dermite seborhéique in french, basically it means inflammation of the skin caused by sebum (oil) People with very white sensitive oily skin get it very often. And there’s nothing you can do about (except roaacutane) but it shouldn’t be used to treat only this but severe acne
Thats what got me thinking…
As i said b4, my acne isnt Severe, its Moderate but consistant and non responsive to most things.. so basically i want to know what i could expect from accutane?
thank u so much 4 the help every1 in advance
