Re: My acne story
Sep 18, 2010
[QUOTE=wwwgirl;4329251]Have you tried seeing a dermatologist? I honestly don't know what to tell you. When I was a teen I had pretty bad acne. They prescribed me some kind of topical ointment that helped but I don't remember what it was. All I know is that it was a white cream in a tiny jar that you had to keep in the refrigerator all the time. I still have acne but I don't get it nearly as frequently as when I was a teenager. My last outbreak was around 2 weeks ago and I ended up with several pimples on my left cheek.[/QUOTE]
Yeah I saw a dermatologist when I was 16/17 for about a year and a half. But to be honest in Ireland (or at least in my experience and family's experience with Derms) if all the usual antibiotics haven't worked, then they send you to the dermatologist and all they do is push roaccutane on you, and if you for whatever reason can't/won't use it then they discharge you from their care saying that there's nothing else they can do. Pretty pathetic really. I'm 22 going on 23 now so I've had acne for the last 10/11 years. I might have to look into going abroad for treatment! Alot of the meds and treatments that are used in America for acne aren't available in Ireland so our options are very limited in comparison.
