Ditch the acne medicine – tackle it naturally with skin:genius

09 May 2017 22:45

Acne can be devastating – not only is it painful and unsightly, if can also affect people’s confidence and self-esteem.  Unsurprising then that people will try pretty much anything to rid them of their acne: even, as a last resort, turning to their doctor many of who are prescribing Roaccutane.

Roaccutane can cause some very harsh side effects - here are just a few;

  • Life-threatening birth defects can be caused.  Women of child-bearing potential must agree to the use of 2 forms of contraception i.e. condoms and the contraceptive pill, so a change of hormones occur
  • Depression, anxiety, aggression and mood changes and very rarely psychotic symptoms (e.g. delusions or hallucinations), thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts
  • Dryness of the lips, eyes, mouth and nose, cracking or peeling skin, itching, rashes, blistering
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain/Back pain
  • Trouble concentrating, sleep problems, crying spells, aggression or agitation
  • Decreased night vision

This BBC article explains some devastating outcomes
