I was curious to whether or not my skin will get worse before it starts to heal if so about what week will i get an initial break out? My face already seems to be doing better cysts are drying up or coming to heads. Skin is getting really flaky and my face is red and sorta burns. If there is an initial break out how long will it last?

Nobody can answer these questions for certain since it varies from person to person, but here's a general outline that's at least somewhat reliable:

Accutane log - month 6 of 6, 80mg/day

yup. depends on what kind of acne you have surface acne, those will probably clear up really fast without much purging (the getting worse before it gets better) but since you talked about cysts, you might have a lot under your skin thats going to surface later. so normally you start breaking out around week 2, and then it can take anywhere from 2-3months or even 6 months to get completely clear. its different for everyone, but just stick with it! the worst thing you can do is stop or change your routine, itll mess everything up and be like youre starting over. good luck!
