I am going to the dermatologist on October 10th. I don't have bad acne but i do get inflamed pimples one about every week and they leave red marks that seem to never fade. I also have rather oily skin. My question is do you think I can get accutane prescribed if i request it because benzaclin didn't work, differin didn't work, retin-a-micro didn't work, and minocycline didn't work. I don't want to try more crap that won't work so if i ask to go on accutane do you think i have a good shot at getting it. I REALLY APPRECIATE RESPONDS! Please tell me what your think I am at the point where I hate to go out because of my face but my family says I don't have it that bad but it is bad enough to bother me and make me feel no good.

I cant stand this acne crap! Nothing is working for my mild acne and yesterday I asked a kid from my school who I heard telling a teacher he was on accutane so I knew he used it...well any way he had severe acne but I asked him which derm he went to prescribe it and he said I shouldn't even waste my time trying to get accutane because I hardly have it at all which is some what true but I get inflamed pimples that actually hurt when I touch them and I have really oily skin and a bunch of red marks that seem to never fade. This gave me doubts about getting it this friday. I really want it because I know it will work but the derm will probably tell me to try other things but I think I will be firm and tell her I want accutane. This whole ordeal, even though it's mild is killing my confidence. I hate talking to girls and avoid them many times because I'm insecure about it. I know I am over reacting about my problem which is selfish because so many people out there have it really bad and many would probably kill to have my skin but the fact is that it bothers me which I guess is all that matters.........I am wondering that if I tell the derm that after trying benzaclin,differin,retin-a-micro, and minocycline from my pediatrican and not haveing them work that great if she will probably let me go on accutane after I also tell her that it really is ruining my life because it kills my self-esteem and confidence. Please tell me what you think and please give me advice on what I can say to sweet talk her into giveing it to me. This is my first dermatologist visit so I don't know how things go.
