In Topic: First Time Accutane Log (With Pictures) (18 / Male)

Id try to get a topical or something so it doesn't come back

Week 14/15 post Accutane

 

My skin has been great since I got off Accutane. However, since a few weeks I'm getting more and more closed comedones / milia on my cheeks and I haven't changed anything in my routine...If I pinch a little, a tiny wisp? of hardened sebum comes out. I have also been getting some kind of acne under my eyes and arround my nose . It looks very different from the closed comedones though. It looks more like some kind of eczema.

 

Is it because of the dehydration the Accutane caused? Or is it some kind of side-effect?

 

I am really afraid my acne is all going to come back already. Anybody with the same experiences?Should I be worried? Should I go back to my derm?

I know for a fact that in a few months you'll look back at this and be so glad you continued on with your course because youll be clear. Its not a fast acting medication but it work extremely well if you hold out for the whole course. 

 

We're are own worst critic. Acne sucks but dont be hard on yourself. You look great with or without it!

Itll get better! Remember you just increased your dosage and that usually causes more breakouts to occur.

For me as I got further into my course my side effect lessened quite a bit. Not so much the dryness but the back pain and such. I think your body gets use to the medication after a while. Of course everyones different though.

Day 24 (10% done)

My next appt is on oct 7th. How many days before it should I give blood?

I usually go about 3 days before so they have time to get it to the doctor before my appointment.
