It's my third week since I have used sotret to treat my acne and I would like to talk about my skin problems. My acne started about when I was 12 years old and nothing worked.

I also started facing stomach problems and get food poisoning every six months or so.

This medicine has done wonders for my skin. I used to live by the clean and clear oil pads because my skin was so oily. I have not had to use any of them since completing this medication.

I used to ha ... Show Full Comment
