When the doctor saw my face. She said oh it's severe you need to see a specialist, meaning a dermatologist. You need to see someone who really know what they are doing because with your type of skin you can scar really bad. Hmm that's comforting to know....Then she offered to do steroid injection on those big cysts for $200. It's expensive I know! I was quite desperate. It didn't work though. I think she is just used to injecting botox than treating acne.

Going to see a doctor
Since I live in Los Angeles, going to see a dermatologist for acne is quite a challenge. Most dermatologists around here don't see acne patients anymore. I have called several offices just to be told that I have to wait several months for the doctor to be available or I can see a nurse instead. So I decided to go to a medical spa to see any doctor (not a dermatologist). I thought at least I can start taking antibiotics or something. At this point some of the bumps already developed in to big painful cysts. I don't even wanna show my face outside anymore.
