Hey guys I'm a 16 year old guy and I'm on my second month of Accutane. I have moderate acne primarily on my chin and nose. I've been on it for a month and 4 days. I won't go into everything I've tried before I tried accutane because I know whoever takes this medicine has tried everything already.
I'm taking the "Absorbica" version which is apparently a new product.
Ever since I started Accutane my face has been a mess. Just in the first 2 weeks I got 5 big cysts on my chin and after that, once a pimple went down, another one filled its place. My lips are so chapped so every night I slab on chapstick and religiously apply it throughout the day. I also get bad lower back pain every once in a while and I've started getting a lot of big pimples on my cheeks (I never used to get pimples there) which is annoying.
I know it's just the second month and I know there's an initial breakout but it seems like my face isn't giving me a rest! It's non-stop pimple after pimple, it's getting even worse than I've ever had before and it sucks!
I'm going to obviously going to stick with it and pray it gets at least a little better this/next month but for now I'm getting really frustrated with my face and feel like there's no sign of progress
I'll try to update this every week and answer anyone's specific questions!
