I recently went to the dermatologist because my mom is hoping for my face and back to clear up before m sophomore year of high school. I've been to the dermatologist a few times, and my mom and I have constantly discussed Acutane, because she took it herself. We agreed that I wouldn't take it until I was over 16, because my mom is afraid of how much it could harm my kidneys. I'm wondering if there is any truth to my mom's and my fear?
