It wasn’t till I was 16, that I deliberated whether to try a stronger drug, Isotretinoin. Quite frankly, I was scared of what it could do to my body and what side effects might occur. I put it off and agreed not to try it, however in the beginning of this year I had reached breaking point. Going to the dermatologist to start Isotretinoin seemed like the only option left. I had waded through all the other alternatives, which for my skin, weren’t working at all.
This post is more to illustrate that although life might appear to be blemish-free, we all have flaws somewhere. I know that some of you might think that my skin isn’t even that bad and that’s fine. I am doing this treatment for me; I no longer want to look in the mirror and see the scars on my face which remind me of feeling awkward, being in pain and trying so hard to cover up my skin with thick layers of makeup.
