It has been more than 2 weeks of my accutane course, and somehow my left side of the face breakout tremendously.

my skin is very dry which is normal, and the initial breakout made me uncomfortable going out,

but right now it's the peak of my first semester in college sooooooooo....yeaahh. can't run away from classes and other stuff.

All i wanted to ask is how long does the initial breakout last?

the pimples are all sensitive and i think it's a cystic acne (huge bums with no head)

Help! sad.png

I got my initial breakout at the end on month 1 and it was pretty much finished by the end of month 2. You'll get there, don't worry :)

Most people see great results within a month or two. Two weeks is not a lot - hang in there!

i know it's still early for my face to get better, but the breakout isn't like lots of small red dots but a really large about 5 of them scattered, deep cyst. there's one giant on my forehead and it really pains me to walk around the campus like this...

any tips to reduce the size of it?

i'm using retin-a a lot but it doesn't seem to shrink the size of it and it has been there for more than a week

This will sound quite unmasculine, but if you really want to hide it, a dab of makeup or a tinted moisturizer can really help. It takes the edge off it terms of redness and I know that it helped me get through the short period my skin was breaking out badly.

i'm really frustrated right now cause new bums are forming and the old ones still at large

this have to be the worst breakout i had and i felt awfully depressed

scars all over my face and now new deep pimples are forming

it really pains me to look at my own reflection :/
