Im almost 4 weeks in on accutane 60mg a day i weigh 70kg. This is my second course i relapsed after the first one. Im female late 30s and have had cystic acne for 24 yrs now mainly mouth , chin , jaw and sometimes cheeks.
I have had the most awful breakout this past week at one stage 10 cysts on the one side of my face painful and totally ruin my face . What can i put on my face to help soothe the cysts and how long can i expect this breakout to last ?
Im being pro active in my acne had hormones tested all came back fine am wondering whether to try a bcp as well as the accutane
any thoughts welcome as these cysts keep me awake at night and are truly horendous
