Acne Problem Watch
I cant understand what to do, I am really not keen on going back on the dianette and am so worried about going through that awful phase again. It really reduced my self confidence!!!
i was on a tetracycline for acne too...my doc didn't tell me how long i should be on them for, but after about 6 months i stopped because i didn't want to be taking antibiotics long term. but, of course my acne came back! so unfortunately i think if the doc puts you on more medicines you should really complete the full course.
could you ask for creams/gels instead, if you'd prefer that?
also, what about other treatments such as laser surgery (depending on age etc)..ask your doc.
either TCP, or witch hazel.
I feel for you because I had a course of Roa about 5 years ago now, and my skin has begun to flare up again (a small percentage of people need two courses of Roa). I'm on some topical prescription stuff at the moment, but it really isn't doing the trick - there's no way I'm going on the pill so it looks like I'll have to go on another course of Roa, with all the lovely blood taking that goes with it
