After being on roaccutane and then having clear skin after, I ended up having a relapse which seems to flare up from time to time. Sometimes it's nearly as bad as it used to be and it is very uncomfortable. It's also frustrating as after nearly 7 years of trying to rid the acne it's returned!
The doctor is looking to refer me back to the dermatoligist, only I am worried that they will be unwilling to provide treatment as for a lot of the time it probably isn't as bad.
I get cyst-like spots on my face, mainly around my ears, cheeks and jaw line, and then get raised pimples and whiteheads on my forehead and on my cheeks. It also goes down the back of my neck and onto the top of my back. I also get lots in my hair too!! But I also get like lots of small raises pimples, that don't always get a head, which appear all over my face, shoulders and all over my chest too. But I think as they aren't always visible they won't see it is particularly bad.
My doctor is not sure how to treat it, as I haven't responded to the toppical treatments she has given me, and she doesn't know what to suggest as I've already been on roaccutane.
Is there any hope for me?!?! Are there other treatments available?
