ever since my doctor recommended accutane for me I've been trying extra hard to get rid of this myself before my next appointment which is supposed to be the day I get my accutane prescription or whatever.
I used antibiotics for a month and my doctor saw NO improvement whereas I saw a little. So I started taking vitamin E and a multi-vitamin. I noticed some more improvements (slight but of course I noticed um) Then I started taking more vitamin C and stuff. THEN..."yeah were looking at an accutane case here" doc
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" (my response) so that is where I kicked it up a notch. I take 3 grams of B5 a day and I take 2000 mg. of C and 800 I.U of E. plus 50 wopping mg. of doxy which I think has nothing to do with anything.
Well I have been noticing some vast improvements. I'm seeing my skin is very smooth now, well not completely but certainly more so then when....whatever. Anyways I just have some red marks, a pretty large amount of um but I haven't seen anything gross for a while. I'll continue to take the B-5 and I think i'm going to step it up to 4 grams. Anyways if my doctor doesn't see any improvements he is going to get smacked up side his head!!
Now my question. Does Accutane fade the red marks? I mean should I still take accutane or keep using the vitamins and watching the redness fade and fade. Does accutane just magically vanish the red marks or something? I don't know what the hell to do. I am not looking forward to seeing the doctor again. URrrgh. I really appreciate you reading this and getting any feedback.
