Post Derm appointment tomorrow...

Not sure what I'm even gonna do, or what he'll say. He'll most likely say my acne isn't bad enough for accutane, which is probably true, I'm just so sick and tired of having a ****ty complexion that won't ever become normal.

I've got some scars that bother me the most, but I don't know what can be done about them...I guess they're like mini keloid scars, protruding.

Anyone have advice on what to ask/demand? I haven't seen this derm before.

I'm about to go on Azelex to help speed up the healing process. Supposedly it makes your red marks fade real quick. I hope this is the case!

My dermatologist put my 15 year old son on Benzamycin Pak, (a erythromycin, benzoyl peroxide gel), and Tazorac with great results. He washes his face with Eucerin pore cleaning face wash, available in drugstores and walmart. Good luck with finding your way.

I really don't want anything topical, and I've already been on multiple kinds of antibiotics. Topical stuff isn't very good when you have acne on your face, neck, back, and sometimes arms :
