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.

More police for Birmingham

  

The Government has cut 2,000 police officers from the force in the West Midlands. It’s having a huge impact on our communities. That’s why I have been demanding, along with other Labour colleagues, that the Government recruits more police. Do you agree? Sign the petition below and share with your friends if you do.
