Do you think I should ask to go back on accutane for the second time? Watch

    7 years ago I was put on a course of accutane for severe acne that was terrible.

    it all cleared up and my skin looked great for around 2 years.

    I then developed mild to severe acne once again and was put on epiduo which helped and my skin cleared.

    I've been on epiduo for around 5 years but it's started to be less effective. This year I have so far tried trecylin, epiduo and differin.

    My acne is now mild with around 4 spots at the time, a lot of blackheads and VERY oily. My chest and back are also a lot spottier than my face.

    I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, what are the chances of me being put back on accutane? or do you think they will look at my face and say no it's not bad enough.

    I realise none of you are doctors before you point this out but I wondered if any of you had experience of this same situation and wanted to know your story.

    Find it quite frustrating because my boss recently got put on accutane after not trying any previous treatments and she only has a few spots on her chin! did think that was quite irresponsible of the doctor but it does give me some hope.

    thanks in advance guys
