Hey if you have acne mostly around your mouth that sounds like it could be perioral dermatitis. If you used a fluoride toothpaste, you could be suffering from a sensitivity. Get a new toothpaste, something mild and natural, like Burt's Bees or something, without fluoride in it.

 

Do that for a few weeks. Yes, weeks, and I would also leave it alone - try not to apply too much stuff to it, if it really is perioral dermatitis topicals could be making it worse.

 

 

Oooh and I just read that you're on accutane. Well, might as well change your toothpaste anyway. Accutane has the potential to be horrifically destructive. It's used in some chemotherapies because it destroys stem cells in the gut. I hope you don't suffer side effects :(

Hey, yeah mine is definitely severe cystic acne. Its not small bumps, it is large painful cysts. I avoided accutane like the plague for years out of fear. Been on it 4 months now and about to start the 5th and its slowly getting better. No bad side effects thus far other than the normal dry skin, lips, nose like everyone else seems to get for those who are fearful are considering it but fearful like I used to be.

Mine was like this early in the summer and it is thoroughly miserable. If you haven't already done so then you must go and see a doctor or a dermatologist and get yourself on antibiotics because that was the only thing that could get my acne under control when it got as bad as this. Best of luck and hang in there! It will get better!

Get some cortisone injection and look into accutane.
