Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

It seems that you have a hormonal imbalance .You have not mentioned your weight ,but in such cases where there is hormonal imbalance we get to see certain features in body like: facial hair ,weight gain, acne ,scalp hair loss and irregular periods .Kindly let me know if you have any of these feature.You should get a blood investigation done for your hormones and a ultra sound of abdomen which would surface any hormonal imbalance .
As far as roaccutane is concerned ,its a wonderful medicine for acne but one should take certain precautions before taking it .You should have responded to it by now...but probably for your hormonal imbalance you have not responded to it.I also think that you should stop roaccutane since you are suffering from depression .There is a chance that roaccutane might aggravate your depression.
In hormonal cases ,one responds to hormonal treatment only like to diane 35,aldactone ,cyprteron acetate etc..
So consult a good dermatologist who can first investigate your case properly and then treat you .
Along with this you should check what all creams you are using .Avoid using any moisturizing soap or face creams .Don't squeeze your pimples ,else they would leave marks.For marks ,along with oral medicines ,you can go for chemical peeling also .Always use a good spf sunscreen daily & a anti acne face wash.
I hope this would help you to analyse your self better.

regards,
Dr.chawda

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The problems you have with your skin is due to the hormonal changes your body is going through. If taking medicine for such a long time has not helped you till now then it is best to go for a laser surgery to lighten the pigmentation spots.Rest of your problems are more due to the mental illness you are having.

I got married in the month of Nov 2009. I wish to inform you that i do not have any sexual relationship with my wife till date as when ever we try to go for intercourse, she complaints about acute pain in the stomach and also complaints about burning sensation in her Sexual Organs. She is till virign. Latter on i came to know that she had an virginal infection and due to this, she feels the problem of stomach pain etc. But the real problem is as follows:- i am a healthy person and do not have any kind of sexual problems i the past before marriage. now as we days have passed on, the extra skin, which covers the head of the pennies become thick due to which the pennies head is not able too come out of the skin. when ever i try to pull back the skin over the pennies, it pains alot. Some times it peeps. Kindly suggest as to whats wrong with me? Will be my pennies be normal as it used to be before. Also kindly suggest some remedy for my wifes problem. One more think i would like to ask you is do the size of the virign differs from women to women.

i am under serious stress from a number of serious pressure on my life, i can see it is seriously affecting my health in many ways. I have a son who is 2 years old now and i think i possibly never got over post natal depression but my problems are now getting harder with financial issues and just being evicted from my house. Also a family member has recently been very ill and it s been a very emotional time for me and my partner with a lot of family issues. I dont get very much sleep because i have now got a bad case of insomnia, i rarely get to sleep before 6am and then am back up again for my son so am constantly tired through the day and need naps but at night time i get to a point where i just cant get to sleep because my mind is overactive. I dont really notice that i often go through a whole day without eating any food and any food which gets put in front of me is hard to eat. my skin reacts badly with stress and it makes me self concious so my lack of confidence often stops me from going out as much. I get bad mood swings because of all of this and it is affecting my relationship with my partner. i dont know how much more strain i can put up with and i just want to be happy again for my son !!! any advice would be great. i dont know who would be the proffesional to talk to in person......?
