My acne scarring is getting worse from the treatments I’ve been getting.
My heart goes out to you on this. It’s hard enough to live daily with severe acne scarring and then to have the treatments go wrong, is even harder. I think you’re right though…..the treatment of the scars was probably complicated by the steroids for your atopic dermatitis.
You don’t tell me where you live, but sometimes it really is worth the time, money and inconvenience to go somewhere where there is a national expert in a problem. Dr. Mark Taylor, a dermatologist in Salt Lake City, is really known for his long experience with acne scarring, good judgment, and range of options for treatment. I would suggest a second opinion from him or you may be able to find someone with a national reputation closer to home. Good luck!
