: Why did your daughter go on accutane if the Vitamin A regim worked so well for her?
Because she hates to take any kind of pills, vitamins or any thing like that. I can barely get
her to take her multiple vitamin. She responds great to the topical treatment, and we are
experimenting to find a routine she can deal with. She's a teenager who thinks her mom is nuts.
And also her doctor didn't want her to stay on vitA, it was a quick fix for a serious bout of
acne. It brought near immediate relief and then the topical is controlling the acne now.
