After experiencing severe acne in my 20s I was prescribed a course of acne medication, Roaccutane. The reported side effects, such as depression and extremely dry skin, meant it wasn't a decision I took lightly, but it did significantly clear up my skin.
While I didn't experience many symptoms whilst taking the drug, I didn't expect to be left with so many red pigmentation marks and pitted scars once the acne was gone – or just how much they would knock my confidence, like the acne itself.
