Since hitting puberty at the age of 11 years old, I have had acne all over my face. I didn't have big, nodular pimples, but instead a million little bumps every where. I would get big bumps every now and them also. It was horrible, I was teased, the whole 9. I got past my self-esteem issues & had came to grips that I would probably live with acne for my whole life, & i accepted it.
After trying EVERYTHING for 8 years, i focused on improving other aspects of me since my skin was so resistant to everything. I had been to 3 different dermatologist who prescribed a lot of thing that didn't work. I tried Pro Activ & every over the counter acne treatment you could think of.
After rounds and rounds of different creams and antibiotics, he recommended Accutane, but advised me to get insurance for the time being to cover the costs of the med along with blood work and labs. I finally got insurance, made an appointment for the 1st pregnancy test, waited a mont & got my prescription. In my youtube video, I go more into detail about the cost etc. I will also do a final update. Needless to say, the drug worked wonders for my skin. I didn't have any major side effects. All i had was dry skin, & constipation from not drinking enough water. I'm 6 months post accutane & still have clear skin with some occasional break outs & my hyper-pigmentation has faded. I had an over great experience with the drug & wouldn't change a thing !
