Let me first start by giving a little history of my life with acne. I have 25 years and have had, and has been the struggle, terrible acne for as long as I can remember, at least 10 years or more.
I tried everything imaginable of antibiotics, creams or ointments, cleaning products, Proactiv (which made it worse), chemical peels, microderms,diet, exercise, changes in shampoos or soaps and detergents, lotions or whatever, I attempted, so the sheets and pillow hypoallergenic. For a short time, some helped a little, but nothing complete or permanent.
I’ve always been very self-conscious about my face and skin, but have become more because it is spreading to my chest, shoulders, neck and back and also since becoming a mother. I hate going out in public and sometimes they do not, especially when lit longer than normal. It breaksmy heart when my 4 year old daughter asked why I have “boo-boos” all over my face, trys to kiss to “make them feel better,” and because, literally, cause severe pain, she tells me want to “disappear” and do not. I have been given the opportunity and the decision to start takingAccutane, but I’m very nervous and worried about it. I’ve done my homework and researched everything on both acne and Accutane.
As I’m sure everyone has been about taking the medication, side effects are what concern me. I heard and read horror stories, but have also read great stuff. So I guess I’m asking for is some guidance and hope to those who have been in the same situation, because those are the only ones who have any idea what its like to look in the mirror, sees the same things and feel the same way as I do. Thanks for taking the time to read and share, I appreciate more than you know.
In these days I am following home remedies for acne and i have effect little better but still needs more suggestions.
