I'm 27 year old, male, with moderate acne that is resistant to the following treatments that I have tried: topical OTC benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, face washes, topical antibiotics, oral antibiotics. I have tried all these things and more but there has not been a definitive, 'omg my skin is clear', treatment for my acne.
I think that the next step is to try roaccutane. I have a very high pressured job so the stress leads to lots of breakouts. I feel like it's having an impact on my quality of life and self-confidence. I am also single and not having too much luck finding love - I am hoping a complete resolution of my acne would give me a boost of confidence.
I wanna make sure that the consultant prescribes me the roaccutane. I am well aware of the side-effects.
1) Is there anything/condition/current medication that would keep the derm from prescribing me roaccutane?
2) Is roaccutane considered somewhat of a definitive cure for acne?
3) Do I have to take roaccutane for the rest of my life?
4) I take propecia for hairloss; would this be a contraindication to getting this pill prescribed?
