I've been on Accutane 16 days now, 40mg per day, and I have yet to experience any real side effects including an initial breakout, which makes me wonder/doubt it's working. I got prescribed it because I have moderate, but persistent acne in the form of whiteheads and blackheads. Within the last few days though, my face has just gotten SO SO SO bumpy with whiteheads - like goosebumps on my face bumpy. However, nothing is being "purged", they have just developed under my skin and are staying dormant from the looks of it.
I know there is the IB for most people, I am curious, has this whitehead festival happened to anyone else? Or is my face just genuinely getting worse because I had to stop using my Tazorac in order to be on Accutane? This doesn't seem normal. I'm not breaking out, I'm just developing more. ???
