I was in high school and we all know how cruel other students can be. I used to be a 'crater face'. My skin is now beautifully clear. I just wish I'd known of if earlier - I wasted 5 years fighting my doctors for a referral to a real dermatologist - for 5 years my acne went from bad to worse, I had to have surgery for a cyst on my face and they still wouldn't give me a referral.
After that my mom finally just paid cash for me to see a dermatologist recommended by a friend. It took 1 office visit and she prescribed me Accutane. I saw improvements within a day or 2 on the medication. I heard rumors it causes depression - that was the happiest time in my life. It's been over 10 years and my skin is still flawless and I rarely get any pimples.
My mom had somehow heard about the dermatologist...
