Are my future kids doomed?!

The thought of having kids in the near *future* (I'm still in college) has definitely crossed my mind lately. Problem is, I have been thinking - both my boyfriend and I had SEVERE acne (both went on Accutane). I had such a rough time with it in highschool, as I know he did also. If we were to have a child together, would our kid be doomed to have severe acne also?? I really would feel bad seeing my own kid going though what I did. Neither of my parents ever, ever, had any kind of acne problems, but I did. How does that work? Isin't acne primarily genetic?? This is such an odd question, I know, but for some reason I keep thinking about it. Does anyone know if my future kids are doomed for a life of hiding their face?!

My Mom had Adult acne and my Dad did not. I have adult acne and my brother and sister do not. My sister had a little acne as a teen but grew out of it. My brother had clear skin his whole life. The lucky one! So, I don't think your kids would be doomed.

I don't think your kids will be doomed. I've had acne in my early twenties and then not again until I hit 32, but I my brother and parents never had acne. My dad said he had pimples as a teen but I've seen pictures of him and he looked pretty clear to me.
