yes JC, I will consider that. The topical stuff never did anything for me and I do have a few scars.....from my own personal surgery in the bathroom (bad I know!) and also where the Derm gave me steriod shots for my cysts.
I am also curious to know people who have taken accutane then gone on prednisone to see if they still had acne. though everyone is different, so I will have to see how it goes for me. My skin looks so good now! Once I was on accutane and it started to work, I could really see my face and everyone would compliment me on how clear my skin was. Before I could only feel the pain, embarrasment and see the growing red cysts and pimples all over my chin and cheeks.
My most painful one was beside my ear and I have a lovely scar to remind me of it. Sorry you had to go through all of that!
