I'm 27 and started having problems with my skin ever since I stopped taking the pill (tried them all...Yasmin, Alesse, OrthoTriCyclen...). Basically, I don't want to go down that road again and I want to «clear my skin» and cure my body once and for all. I had small comedones on my forehead and more and more cysts on the chin area (wich has always been my problem area but never this bad...).
So I started Accutane 33 days ago (week 5) and I'm still breaking out really bad on my chin (from what I'm guessing is my initial breakout, it started at week 2 approx). My skin feels a lot less oily and my forehead is somewhat clear but I feel like my chin is becoming worse everyday...
I'm on 20mg/day and weight 58kg. My doctor told me nothing about alcohol cosumption but I was just wondering if it might increase the breakout (I took a glass of wine maybe 3 or 4 times since I've started, nothing much...but everytime it seems to result in an other breakout!).
Anyone suffering from what seems like a very long initial breakout?
When will my skin be clear again?
Any experience with low drinking and breakouts while on tane?

Was your acne also caused by stopping the pill? I wonder if Accutane works well for hormonal related acne (which seems to be my case since I never broke out that bad before). Will talk to my dermatologist this week and keep you posted of his answers
