About To Start Month 5 On Accutane, Still No Improvement!?

5 posts in this topic

I'm about to start month FIVE out of six on accutane, and my face still looks awful. Dry patches all over my face. Awfully chapped lips. Tired ALL THE TIME. It's mostly just red little scabby things but they have been there for EVER. Like literally at least 2-3 weeks...

Why isn't my skin better??? That's my biggest concern and fear.... I use coconut oil on my skin in the shower, and neutrogena oil free moisturizer... Neutrogena make up remover wipes on my skin.,. Is any if this making it worse???

I started the first month at 30mg/day. Second month 40. Third month 60. Fourth month 70. I only weigh about 130 and I'm 5'7 so I'm almost at my limit of mg/day...

Help!?!?

I had the same issue!! Found out it was caused by me personally. So i stopped using everything! no moisturizer, no makeup. Just used Cerave Hydrating cleanser very lightly and it all went away and improved.

Dont get too discouraged some people dont clear up until the very end. It usually happens out of no where you just start clearing up. Watch this youtube video for some encouragement!

sometimes stuff like coconut oil can clog pores for people so i would try getting rid of that and just use the moisturizer
