Giving up soon.
Feb 27, 2005
I have has mild/moderate acne (normal teenage breakouts) from roughly age 14 - 21 and now i have has it real bad for the last 2 years. Im 24 and i have been seeing a derm for over a year. He has had me antibiotics like DORYX first and then 100mg of minocycline, and now im taking 200mg of mino a day. Topicals he has put me on include Triaz BP pads, then Duac gel, then differin gel, and now some BP gel (forget the name) that isnt working too well.

My derm is a nice guy BUT i hate how evey visit when I show up looking like crap, he just casually writes me a script for somthing else. Its very frusterating cause i have acne and scars in places i never did untill AFTER i started seeing a derm. He says diet has nothing to do with acne and he doesnt want to precribe accutane cause my acne isnt cystic (even though i have had cysts before but rare). Its probably good i dont go on accutane cause deppression runs in my family and i have dealt with it pretty much my whole life. Now these last two years have been very rough thanks too these attractive puss filled lessions all over my face.

Is a derm just a waste of my time and more important $$$? If i dont get better by the end of march im giving up on my face.
