Looking for a Cure for Pimples?

You don’t just want to control pimples, you want to find a cure for pimples. After all, who wants to have to slather benzoyl peroxide gel on their face twice a day for years to come? Well, if you have mild acne, you might decide that B.P. is all you really need. Try combining it with salicylic acid for the most effective treatment.

If you have moderate to severe acne with pimples that hang around, often beneath the surface, you have two options when it comes to finding a cure for pimples: Accutane and the holistic acne programs. First, let’s take a look at Accutane.



Accutane really has been a miracle drug for severe acne sufferers. It works by reducing the production of sebum from the sebaceous glands in your hair follicles, and has proven to be very effective. It is a drug of last resort, however, due to the many severe side effects. In fact, Accutane was recently removed from the U.S. market because there were so many lawsuits from patients who were harmed by it. Generic forms of the drug are still available, but who knows for how long. There is a good chance that Accutane can cure your acne, but you must only use it when all other methods have failed. Why?

Potential Side Effects of Accutane:

• Severe stomach Pain
• Back Ache
• Bleeding gums
• Blurred vision and poor night vision
• Bone pain
• Joint pain
• Depression
• Suicidal thoughts
• Extreme dry crusty skin, lips and eyes
• Sensitive skin
• Nose bleeds
• Rectal bleeding
• Severe diarrhoea
• Behavioural changes
• Liver and kidney damage
• Birth defects
• dry eyes and difficulty wearing contact lenses even after treatment has stopped
• Thinning hair

… and more.

Some of the side effects are serious (people have actually killed themselves) and this is why you must be monitored closely by a doctor while taking Accutane.

Now, I understand that acne sufferers might dismiss the risk of side effects because they are desperate to find a cure for pimples. But here is something that you might not have considered: Accutane takes time to work and your condition will get worse before it gets better.

My Experience with Accutane

In my own case, it took a whole year for Accutane to have the desired effect. I was in college and my complexion was much worse for 8 months (the entire school year!) than it would have been if I had not taken Accutane. My lips were raw. My skin was red and uncomfortable. I had to carry eye drops with me and put them in my eyes often. The ironic thing is that my acne was cystic acne that was painful but not that noticeable to other people – until I took Accutane! You can imagine that my social life was made worse by Accutane for an entire year – not exactly what I was looking for.

So is Accutane a cure for pimples? Yes it is. But it must only be considered as a last resort. I wish there had been alternatives available when I was looking for a cure for pimples because I probably would not have taken Accutane knowing the severe effects the drug would have on my body.
