One of my sons is taking accutane now. He has severe body Acne that was causing
deep pitting and scars on his chest. I have tried lots of alternatives with him,
but we don't have loads of money to get many tests. He needed help because he
would bleed onto his shirts. It was very hard to resist using the accutane. Of course, my daughter who was a few years older than him thought I was abusive by trying not to let him take the meds. I just think that you do what you got to do.
I still don't like that he is on it. But his skin is slowly healing. One of my other older sons has the same problem, although he never bled thru on his clothes, he
never took accutane, tried lots of alternatives, and is still breaking out at 21.
So, I hope you can find an answer. I think that we have leaky gut problems, and
possibly mercury toxicity going on. But with those, there is diet restrictions, which we try to follow, supps to take, but still 4 of my 5 kids have acne, and
moderate to severe. It's so sad! Anyway, just do whatever works.
