My son is 14 and has very bad cystic acne. We tried antibiotic for 3 months, we tried proactive and lately dermatologist put him on accutaine and he had severe reaction to it; his face was swollen and the whole shape of his face changed. Doctor stopped it for 2 weeks and I really dont want to put him back on accutaine due to side effects I'm reading. What can I do? He is suffering and I'm more stressed and sad for him.
