I’m just taking birth control at the moment. For me, my acne was caused by EXTREMELY high levels of testosterone (14.1 free testosterone) and with a year on birth control I’m down to 1.1 free testosterone! It REALLY helped me.
Are you female? I would see about getting your hormones checked and possibly getting birth control before trying out Accutane because that is ROUGH! If you don’t have the insurance or money to cover it maybe see about how your diet affects your skin. Sugar, dairy, simple carbs and stuff like that can really mess with your skin. Also try to drink a GOOD amount of water daily. Somewhere in the 72-80 ounces range. :)
is it like a scab? or like how weird of skin is it? it may just be recovering underneath. My best suggestion would be to just leave it be and wait it out. I know that is not fun, but it’s better to be safe than sorry in my opinion. :)
Please do not just do an experimental “treatment” for acne without doing any research. Look into everything you try. Don’t just take my word or someone else’s word for it. Even with my reviews and the things I’ve tried. Look into it because everyone’s skin is different. Not everything is safe, not everything is smart. Feel out your own skin. Listen to your own body. All the things that I post on here are my experiences and what has/has not worked for me. I am here as a reference and not a “cure-all” for acne. Just because someone said pee worked for their skin doesn’t mean we should all put pee on our skin. Just because Mario Badescu worked for me, or whichever brand, doesn’t mean you should all use it. I just want you all to use your better judgement and use this blog as a REFERENCE for possible treatments for acne.
Also, I will not tolerate ANY rude/hateful comments EVEN IF you don’t mean them. This is a place of positivity and encouragement and I feel that people on the internet aren’t careful enough with their words.
That’s all I have to say.
Thanks for your time.
