Year 2008 when I had this awful, scary, horrible acne in my face. I thought this was a curse for me! The sad thing too is I am working as a bartender, cashier so many people can see my face like that awful.I tried so many different products but it did not work until I ask my family doctor to...

From the time I hit puberty at age eleven, I've had severe cystic acne on my face, back, chest, and shoulders. I have tried many many topical creams, antibiotics, over the counter remedies, hormone therapy, anything my doctors and I could think of to try and ease the effects of my acne on my... READ MORE

I remember having acne since I was 11/12 years. I took it for the first time when I was 17, second time when 21, and this is mi third time at 26. I have to mention that my acne really improved and that the results are completely amazing. My skin is even better than the one from the people who... READ MORE

I was about ten years old when I got my first pimple. I had never noticed them on other people in my school, or even on my older brother - until I got my first one. I asked my mum about it, and she told me to leave it alone and it would go away. Fast forward five years, and I'm fifteen, being... READ MORE

This is my first week on accutane and I am experiencing dry lips and skin. My face looks red and it's really irritating because it's itchy as well. I've tried to many things to get rid of my acne but, anything worked. I am 30 years old and I started eating healthy and going to the gym and I... READ MORE

Hi all, I'm 18 years old & have suffered from cystic acne since I was 11. I've tried every OTC medication and treatment possible, but was lost hope because none of the products seemed to work. After two years of just using a simple face wash, my acne got worse because of all the makeup and... READ MORE

I have been getting acne since I was about 12 years old. It was never a huge issue, but at the time it seemed like it and I tried out all the cleansers and toners and acne fighters on the market. I am 16 now, and the acne that I had in the past year was the worst so far. When I first visited the... READ MORE

Hi there! I am sharing my experience with Accutane ( Isotretinoine ) because I have reviewed other posts on this web site and found them very useful. I have researched this pill very diligently. Now I just have to wait for the result. Background of the problem: I have had mild form of cystic... READ MORE

I start in a 40 mg dose on Monday. I have been suffering with severe acne since u was 10. Yes 10,fifth grade. It's been a nightmare. I'm 32 now and just want it to be over already. Doubtful because nothing has ever cleared my skin completely. Hopeful because like I said, I just want it... READ MORE

Hi, I am 22 years old and I have been battling cystic acne ever since I was 11. It started right after I got the chicken pox. Once the chicken pox cleared, boom I had acne, which than turned into cystic acne. Painful and not fun. Sometimes I would beg my mom to miss a day of school due to it... READ MORE

I started the medication (40g) almost 4 weeks ago and when I began I had severe under the skin acne especially on my jaw line and chin area. I have tried all the other medications before starting accutane. The first few days were ok as my lips were getting dry but that's expected. I also... READ MORE

I had acne since I was in middle school and after trying over the counter medicines, topical treatments, pills and various other things I was fed up that nothing was working. I friend had told me about Accuntane and after some research I was contemplating going on the medicine, however I was... READ MORE

I'm 23 years old and about a year and a half ago I started breaking out considerably more than what I used to. My acne isn't super severe but its enough to be seen even with makeup on. My dermatologist has had me try doxycycline (150 mcg), various topical gels, and birth control. None of it even... READ MORE

I have been struggling with acne my entire life. its so discouraging. Any time i consider it, my friends talk me out of it because of the side effects.all i hear about are the worst possible scenarios caused by the medication and I truly wonder how often those things actually occur. I literally... READ MORE

My brother has always had severe acne, whatever he tried, didn't worked. He was prescribed accutane his Senior year and by graduation he was acne free. His worst side effects were dry skin and lips, but it was so worth it. He looks great and I am so happy for him. I have always had acne also but... READ MORE

After suffering from acne breakouts in nothing but cystic form, trying every medication over the counter and through the pharmacy, and after dealing with my painful breakouts long enough, I decided it was high time I do something about it since I became immune to one of the antibiotics, tearing...

First of all, I don't reccomend Accutane for anyone who hasn't tried a plethora of other skin drugs first. I've had acne since I was like, 12, and now I'm 24. I've tried birth control, Differin, Retin-A, minocycline, tetracycline, etc. and nothing really seemed to make a difference. I've backed... READ MORE

Ive taken everything and tried everything and combos of it all. IM DONE! I told her I didnt care... READ MORE

My acne started around the time I began middle school and kept getting worse over time. Nothing I used worked, and believe me, I've tried all of the drug store products. Accutane is the only thing that has ever worked. I've been using it for seven months now, and I can honestly say that I love... READ MORE
