I have severe cysitc acne that covers my upper back. I went to a dermatologist for this condition beginning at age 12.
During the course of treatment I was perscribed Minocycline, Doxycycline, tetracycline, and sulfa based medications, all resulting in allergic reactions. I was finally placed on Accutane with positive results while taking the drug, however six months after completing treatment, the acne returned again. A year later I resumed taking Accutane, unfortunately, with the same results.
At 18, I began a homeopathic course of treatment which consisted of taking a variety of vitamins each day. But, I saw no changes in my skin. My hormone levels were also tested, and came back within the normal range.
My question now is, are their any other options for clearing my acne? Thank you for any assistance.
