Hi guys,


So I have these little white thing on my chin. I know that they are common and they aren't very noticeable unless I smile or move my chin. I squeezed one once and this white pus like stuff came out. I just started accutane and noticed an increase in the amount of them. It's probably part of the initial outbreak thing but I'm just wondering, has anyone else had this problem? If so, any fixes???


Thanks in advance!

Depending on how long you've been on Accutane, you might be having or starting to have the initial breakout. I've been on Accutane but unfortunately had to get off of it, but I got a bad initial breakout and I strongly advise NOT TO PICK. Call your doctor to make sure it's a normal reaction if you're feeling uneasy about it.


In a nutshell, I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009. Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I have been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here will reflect that. Considering I have never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I'm still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.

Currently:
Began Accutane (Myorisan) on Sept. 30th, 2014 for a 6 month course (plus any leftover pills I may have) and am/will be consistently on 40mg throughout.
Month 1:  Initial breakout, lips became a little dry.
Month 2:  Skin started clearing, dry lips got worse, flaking around nose and eyebrows.
Month 3:  Skin almost completely clear, lips became less dry, eyes and eyelids began to get dry, still flaking around nose and eyebrows.
Month 4:  TBA

Skincare:
AM:
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
Aveeno Protect + Hydrate SPF 50 for Face
Argan or Avocado Oil (as an "eye cream")
PM:
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
Rosewater
Argan or Avocado Oil (both as a moisturizer and eye cream)
