Just got back from taking youngest son to the dermatologist for his monthly check. He’d gotten a blood test before 7 a.m. this morning as he is on high levels of Accutane (“he’s a big guy”) and they have to make sure that his liver is not being compromised.
He is looking really good. Those stubborn, awful, deep patches have healed completely and I was sure he was going to scar badly from them. Luckily, they were worst at the temple near his hairline and they are in fact fading–the acne has been long gone for some time. The doctor says two more months and he can discontinue the Accutane. It’s been a bit of a hassle, especially the before school blood tests, but definitely worth it.
