I am on day 19 of my accutane treatment (40mg per day) It seems like my entire face is covered completely with bumps, it feels absolutely gross to touch. Even my neck where I have never had a pimple before is also covered. It is really disheartening. I am praying this is just accutane bringing all the bad to the surface ... but when I research many articles say it is a myth that accutane does that.
I am considering stopping the accutane so that my skin can smooth out if it really is a myth that this isnt happening because the accutane is bringing everything to the surface... I would rather deal with a life of a cyst or 2 all the time than hundreds of tiny ones all over the place ! especially when people at work, home, and during my sport outings keep commenting on how bad my face looks, how red, and how bumpy *sigh*

if you don't, you'll always think back and wonder "if I had only given it 1 more week.."
I'm no professional, so please don't take my advice as anything more than that.. just an opinion. but I just think you should stick it out a little longer.
What is your doctor saying? Is this normal for some? Because I don't remember accutane doing that to me. But this was over 5 years ago so I don't really remember everything vividly.

Well if it's a myth or not , no.But in medical terms. it's called differently
I had such a bad IB that I had to stop using accutane for 2 weeks and prednisone and antibiotcs for the infection were necessary.
It will pass.
Make urself busy , time does fly.

And yea that's doctors for you.. sorry to hear that. But I would say that's a good sign if you haven't had any recent acne activity. It means it's doing its job. I'd just give it more time. Things will look up
