I am now 19 and decided to give Accutane a go, as the moment I missed a pill, my acne would appear again. Given that my acne was manageable on the contraceptive pill, I decided that the side effects (dry skin, inefficient mucus glands, etc etc) were simply not worth it.
I went off the Accutane about a month and half a go, whilst remaining on the contraceptive pill. My acne is at the worst it has been for years. I've been using basic facial scrubs and moisturisers instead of forking out for Proactive, but it doesn't seem to be working.
Does anyone know why this might be happening? Or has anyone experienced anything similar? Is there another treatment I could try?
Note: my acne is completely localised to my face, and I have never experienced oily skin.
