Since i was 14 i started to get alot of pimples, not on my face but on my neck and shoulders. For a while i just let it go seeing as how no one noticed it. I tried everything to get rid of them; Benzac, cetaphil, clean and clear etc. nothing made any difference. when i was 16 i noticed it had now become really bad, i had big cysts and i was starting to get them on my chest and face. So even though i was embarrassed i got the courage to tell my mum and we went to the doctors. After about 6 months of various antibiotics and creams he had prescribed nothing had made a difference so i asked him if i could get a referral to a dermatologist. Luckily i got in to see one in a month and straight away he prescribed me with roaccutane. These pills seriously work! They're a last resort and basically never fail. They're very intense and you get very dry skin and lips but I've been on them now for only 4 or 5 months and i have not got a single pimple left. All i have now is some marks that are clearing away.

So if someone sees this and they feel this story is like theirs then i can only say one thing: you have to tell people about it to get help early, or its too late and you will have scarring. Try to see a dermatologist because they specialise in skin and will do the best they can to help you

Hope this helps anyone

Good luck
