Acne: how it affected me

Acne is a horrible disease: I know, I suffered from it for 25 years. It was bad during my teenage years, but got better during my twenties and stayed "mild" with breakouts till I got it cured with the powerful drug known as Accutane/Roaccutane.

I don't wish acne on anyone: it causes psychological damage. But you know that, or you wouldn't be here.

My advice on acne is on this site. It comes from my experience or that of other sufferers, and medical publications. It is as truthful as I can make it.

SOS Acne: my eBook about all aspects of acne Latest Version 2

I have put down my experiences in an eBook, SOS Acne, which covers all the basics about acne, and what treatment you can get from your doctor, including Accutane/Roaccutane which details the benefits and side effects, and how you can minimise the latter. It has been fully updated and much more information added.
