Accutane Wasn't A Cure

8 posts in this topic

I'm 25 yo male. My Accutane course ended two weeks ago. My total dose was 105 mg/kg.
BEFORE Accutane I had severe acne on my back and from mild to moderate acne on my face with a few occacional cysts on my chin/jaw. Usually my face cleared within days and most of the time I was completely clear.
AFTER Accutane the acne on my back is completely gone. However, the acne on my face is the same. Though I haven't got any cysts on my jaw area (yet). Plus I have got lots of whiteheads (90% of them are tiny) on places I haven't had acne before.
What can I do for this? I have tried to eat healthy. Before Accutane I tried Epiduo, but it didn't do much. Though my acne is not severe I hate the scars I'm getting very easily. All I know is that masturbation increases my acne but is not the only cause.
P.S. How do you know if you have acne or some sort of folliculitis?

I have the exact situation as you have. It's like I would have written that first post. I'm very interested in finding the answer as well.

I've read your thread actually which is very good. I'm wondering if there're any proof that those supplements like beta sitosterol are safe when taken long term.

I also suffered a relapse after my last accutane course. I am now on The Regimen going on 6 month and acne is controlled. Look into it if you haven't yet. Also, even though you've tried the diet route it may help to do some juicing and reduce or elimante common triggers such as gluten and dairy

This happened to me. I think this is very common.

You won't be able to know if it is folliculitis unless you begin treatment for folliculitis. There might be a possible way to get tested, but what could be easier is following a holistic treatment protocol and noting any changes.
