Re: Non-Cystic Acne? - what do I do?
What does your acne look like? Cystic acne is usually under the skin type bumps..they can get pretty big, but Ive had tiny cysts as well. My acne doesnt seem to be "regular" even when its small ones. Also, Cysts dont come to a head.. and if they do.. it wont be for a few weeks. They definately hurt, and feel "under pressure".
Regular acne can be controlled by a dermatologist. At this point, I wouldnt even mind if I had regular acne. Cystic acne sucks hardcore.
Theres tons of medications that can help you- Its just a matter of finding which one. I wouldnt take accutane until youve exhausted all other options because you dont have what its typically prescribed for. Thatd be like saying.. I have a birthmark..not cancer, give me radiation therapy. Why do something like that to yourself when you can find something less horrendous to clear you up? (by the way, Im not trying to sound really mean by saying that- Im just trying to give an example of how strong accutane is.)
Go to a derm, though. They can help out tremendously. Good luck!
