    Question Acne type Folliculitis

    I'm new here and wanted to share with everyone.
    I've been suffering with acne type folliculitis for one year now. I'm 44 and had acne as a teenager until I went on accutane, and then I only had very few breakouts. Now, I have been to many doctors and they all seem to think I should go back on Accutane. The breakouts are on my face and body. I've been on heavy antibiotic treatment until I just became allergic to the antibiotics. No creams help either. I tried herbal Stevia and that seems to help the itching. I'm not crazy about going back on accutane either, so I am looking for alternative treatments first. I have even though of going on the pill just for the acne.
    Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Please share. Thanks...

    I'm not sure what Folliculitis is, but I'm sorry to hear you have it. I don't know what help to offer you other than encourage you to read the threads and maybe you will find what you are looking for. Most of us here are searching for answers as well. I think if you could find an alternative to accutane then that would be best.
