It'll clear up eventually OP, my brother had awful acne but as soon as he hit 18 it cleared right up!
In my nursing program we were taught that your diet has nothing to do with acne and that acne is all from your hormone levels. I never could quite grasp that concept, however. I've seen my brother switch his diet and avoid all of the normal foods that are associated with causing acne. It did wonders for his skin. I think that the foods recommended to be avoided to prevent acne change the hormone levels in your body. Thus preventing the acne. That's the one and only way I could justify what my instructors told me to be true in my mind.
49- I totally agree. However, because of the serious side effects I would also suggest trying everything else that is possible before jumping to Accutane. It was the only thing that worked for me. It's definitely worth the risk and the dermatologist would know if it's the best product for OP.
#78 you're wrong on that. I took accutane years ago and they only listed the typical things like depression and crap. They never said anything about the possible gastro problems that can arise. I'm one of the unlucky few that got a gastro problem from it and my life is like hell thanks to it. I'd rather have acne and I really regret taking that crap now
#80, I'm sorry about that. but you really are one of the unlucky few. simply out of curiosity, not trying to accuse you of anything, of course - how do you know it was Accutane that caused your gastro problems? I've never heard of this side effect, that's why I'm asking.
Facebook has facial recognition now? Holy fuck, just when I think Facebook is set to destroy the world, now it can recognise my face in a picture too? We are doomed, people. Facebook will become Skynet, and then it's all over. *puts tinfoil hat on*
I suggest using noxzema Anitblemish cleansing pads and aveeno clear complexion facial moisturizer. Every night clean your face with the noxzema pads then rub a little of the aveeno on your face. That's what I do and it has worked for me. Been using it for quite a while now. Ts the only thing I have found that works on my adult acne. Plus it doesn't bother my sensitive skin
