    The spots kind of draw more attention.

    I was at my most sexually active when my skin was at its worst. Likely due to the fact that I went out on the pull every weekend in that period of time, but goes to show that it's not a major hinderance

    Accutane works wonders but unfortunately the NHS dosing protocol is far too high which creates very harsh side effects. It's been long established that 30mg a day is pretty much the point of diminishing returns but the NHS are always behind current knowledge and prescribe way over that to some people.

    No one is perfect so if you have bad skin at least be muscular. Clear skin does really make a difference in how you look but it doesn't make or break you.

    It doesn't change your physical appearance that much - depending on its severity. Saying that, getting rid of acne can work wonders for your self-esteem and confidence is very attractive.

    Well you haven't 'tried everything' if you aren't prepared to go to the doctors....
    As Woody says Roaccutane is great.

    Takes ages to get going tbh and dries your skin out so much so you need to keep applying stuff.
    Currently on 30mg a day, rising to 50mg in just over a week... If it ends up shifting the spots on my neck/back i ain't complaining...

    This drug (over several cycles) improved my life so much, proper acne became just the odd spot. Never had anything worse than isolated spots on my face since, only neck/upper back gets outbreaks now.
    Those steroids i'm taking probably aren't helping

    Fair enough Just keep an eye on the side effects at 50, a lot of people start getting really depressed and lethargic with sun-sensitive skin and peeling/cracking especially on the lips and inside the nostrils. I tend to just run 30mg every other day for a few months and then drop down to one tablet twice a week for a few months to maintain, works wonders with no side effects

    Is yours prescribed or?

    Course not mate, da testosteronez = acne.
