In late summer 2017 I was only 22 years old and I noticed the subcutaneous inflammation localized at the junction of the neck and cheeks. I had absolutely no idea what to do. I was surfing the Internet days and nights. When I came to the reception to the fourth dermatologist I was already ready to take Accutane. The only thing that stopped me was planning a baby. I realized that if I started taking the Generic Accutane, I should forget about it at least for a year. The doctor explained that pregnancy was not a panacea. Yes, hormonal background changes, but things can get much worse, if not during pregnancy, then during feeding the baby. I passed more tests (ultrasound of the gall bladder and hormones of the liver) and was prescribed the treatment.
