This would be a much better source! Please be wary of the side effects!
Wow the side effects are pretty harsh. Tbh I don’t think my GP will prescribe this to me because my acne isn’t that severe but thanks for the info 😊

You need to go back to your GP and discuss what other options are available.
I will as soon as I can

Until you get the Roaccutane from a dermatologist like Precious Illusions suggested (got rid of my acne in 3 months, there are some drawbacks like muscle pain and dry skin but it's worth it!). While you wait, try having cold showers, drink a lot of water, aloe vera cream from nearest market (got mine from Asda, any will do) and more sleep - that's what works for me now that I stopped taking the pills, as they will still appear but only 1-2 spots per month.

I’ll definitely do this. Seems straightforward enough thank you. Hope it gets better before starting sixth form 😖

Try cutting out meat and/ or dairy. Sometimes these foods have hormones in that can trigger acne. Experiment and see if something triggers it

Cut it out fully? Or just eat less?

I did a stint of vegetarianism and replaced my milk with soya milk also; I did find my acne improved somewhat. Whether it was the lack of meat or the lack of dairy I’m not sure. It’s best just to experiment a bit and see how your body reacts
