Hi, i'm starting Accutane monday and I am very exciting about it. I had very mild but persistant acne in the past, basically very little pustules around mouth only which is very frustrating. The only thing that had worked is Benzoyl Peroxide but left me with permanent red dehydrated awful skin, I would say a pretty bad trade.
Briefly, my skin can't heal due to massive topical that I have to use to keep my acne away and if I try to stop a bit it came back very quickly.
I have read a lot of threads about people with huge side effects which scared me a little.
I'm going for 20mg/day and I'll build to 40mg for a 6 months course, but is it enough to avoid acne coming back after considering the fact that my acne is mild? I'm very confident that Accutane will work but I'm scare of what will happen next. Also, as my skin has been damaged by benzoyl peroxide, will it be able to heal while I'll be on Accutane? I guess it can't be worse.
