Customer Question

My daughter is struggling with cystic acne...
JA: The Dermatologist can help. To begin, when did acne first appear? Has your daughter used any medication for this?
Customer: She has suffered since aged around 15. She's now 22. She has tried Accutane in the past and has taken a contraceptive pill which helped somewhat. She is awaiting a re-referral and the GP has currently prescribed Adapalene.
JA: Thanks for that. Has she seen a dermatologist about acne?
Customer: Yes but not for around 18 months now. Is awaiting a re-referral.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in her medical history the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: She has mild asthma and hayfever. Not sure if they are relevant.
