For the start, I will have to say that I do not regret taking accutane.

I started taking accutane on 20-22(im not sure) June 2012.After seeing all those before and after accutane pictures I was feeling just great, and the fact that I was on that drug , that takes acne away( no metter how severe) uh..was making me sleep better at night.

As far as the side effects go , nothing besides : dry skin,dry/chapped/bloody lips and 1 or 2 nose bleeds.

I read about the potential IB of acctuane , but it didin't scare me at all because it was summer, and I could sacrifice a summer for good looking skin or not even good but acceptable.

I could keep writing all the detalis but I don't want this to be a long post plus most of the people are there for the pictures(i do not indent to offense anyone).That begin said here they are

 

This was my skin when I first started taking accutane.:

http://www.acne.org/...16-right-cheek/

 

This is my skin when the terrible IB came out:

And here's how my skin is after 1 year and 3 months and about 10 days.:

I hope my post will help others...someway.

That is absolutely outrageous. Do you have any indentations or anything, or just redness?
