I'm watching videos of people on YouTube, and I'm seeing people with way, wayyyyy worse acne than me, yet they healed at almost four months. Well, compared them, my acne is very minor, yet my acne process is healing very slow -- or none at all. I feel like it was progressing in the middle stage, but then it stopped. I'm thinking it's because maybe I've been lazy and have been eating junk food (not eating out, but eating chips, cookies) and recently I've been working so I've been drinking alot of lattes (usually I wouldn't) and that has 99% dairy... Here are some pictures..

I didn't even improve...
I see SLIGHT improvements I mean now that I have two windows side by side but I also see new acne.... My doctor apparently sees an improvement, and I do too (the right side where it was worse). It went from WORSE to "very bad". So it did improve, but slightly. Left side I actually got new marks. I'm on my third months (I know on another thread I said I was on my fifth month, but I just realized it's only been three!), but my doctor said that he wants to take me out of accutane after my fourth month...
And in those pictures, the Feb pictures was my starting month (first month) and the pictures from April was taken less than an hour ago
Im reading peoples posts, how does accutane clear them up 99% in the 2nd month? Im totally envious. I think it is definitly the dairy I had in my latte. I usually don't drink coffee, but it was my exam week that week, and for the seven days I drank maybe seven large lattes a day.
Products I use:
Wash face with water.
Use Shiseido Sunscreen.
Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser
Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
No exfoliation. No mask.
And as for diet, I do not eat fast food, but I do eat junk food (like I said, chips, cookies). The only thing I drink is water. I don't like sweet stuff so I do not drink juice at all (so yes, that means strictly no pop). I eat a salad every day with a drop of ranch. I wish I had pictures from March because I swear I saw improvements...
I see your left side gets a lot of mprovement but the right side may take some time more. My doctor said it should take 5- 6 month to see full improvement. I am on the 5week accutane and still see so many break out everyday. I see ur habit diet which so much the same with me. I believe i eat mostly healthy foods: no junk food (very rarely ), eat vegetables , fruits a lot but i still have severe acne... That is terrible !!!.
Which accutane brand you have been taking and when you start to see the improvement
