Ive been on Bactim before and its probably the best antibiotic for acne. I would request that like you said but Im not so sure Id start Differin again. It'll just cause you to breakout more, making your situation worse, especially if you only use it for a month. Me personally I would use Bactrim and some sort of BP until you get on Accutane. Most topicals are going to take 3 months to start seeing results so less is probably best in your case. Give your skin a little break before you start Accutane.

I know exactly how you feel. Every time I get clear, it's always temporary. Have you tried any supplements, though? I got my skin almost entirely clear taking a vitamin B complex, vitamin D3, beta carotene, zinc, and vitamin C. I stopped taking vitamin C based on some reports I read, but stopping it didn't affect my skin. You can also use a homemade vitamin C serum. I recently added DIM, which you probably wouldn't need if you're male. You may also want to try niacinamide. I read some amazing reviews, so I'm going to give it a try.

 

I haven't tried any supplements as I was told to avoid Zinc and Vit D while on roaccutane. I will look into it though, I've got nothing else to lose.

 

>I feel you, Im on my 3 rd course myself. How long and how many mg were you on each time? Also are you a male or female? 

 

80mg for 6 months each time. Completley clear every time, then it comes back extremley quickly

 

I think what Im going to do is is either try to maintain it with a topical after or maybe a low course of accutane for a long time.. I dont know what else there is to try..

ok so most of my scars will heal on their own then...if they are superficial...second I will be going on Accutane ...does Accutane cause more scarring from the initial breakout?

 

Possibly because it may cause you to breakout more than you are already are BUT I dont think it will be much more than you are already experiencing.

Moderate to severe acne can leave behind marks on the face. Some acne marks and scars are deeply pitted and difficult to remove. Superficial acne scars can be removed easily and have certain characteristics that can make them easily identifiable. Superficial acne scars will usually fade over a few weeks or months, while severe acne scars take up to a year to fully fade.
