Hi All - I've found this site really helpful since joining so I'm hoping someone can help here - apologies if there is another relevant thread, but I couldn't seem to find one.
I've never had great skin, but it got much worse as I got older. Lots of painful, inflamed cystic acne to the point of going on Accutane in 2010 after trying every oral and topical treatment my derm could think of. It worked like a dream and I never wanted to come off it - zero negative side effects and beautiful oil-free skin. Fast forward to now and TTC and being off BC has resulted in my skin erupting again. I found out I have PCOS which explains the acne and extremely oily skin. I tend to exaggerate, but not when it comes to my skin. I can blot the oil five times in a work day and still be very visibly shiny when I get home.
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a dermatologist who understands the struggles of trying to control these things while also balancing what is safe for TTC or any other recommendations. The toll this is taking on my self esteem on top of fertility issues is quite dramatic...
Thank you in advance!
