Skin Oily Again?

26 April 2013 - 07:03 PM

I'm on day 44 of accutane and my skin has been so dry for really long now, even though I had really really oily skin before accutane. But this week, the oil seems to be coming back, mainly in my T-zone. It's a lot less than before Accutane but it's still oily. Has this happened to anyone before?

Anyone On Accutane With Piercings?

17 April 2013 - 09:44 PM

Has anyone on Accutane with still healing piercings gotten weird bumps like hypergranulation tissue? Both of my cartilage piercings were 7 months old and about 70% healed and weren't causing any trouble until I started Accutane. Within a month of starting, both cartilage piercings developed these raw, red looking bumps on the fronts and backs of the piercing holes. I've never had any problem before and these bumps won't go away no matter what.

Tiny Little Clogged Pores?

Anyone get clogged pores that look like little things are coming out in the first month of Accutane or so? I started out with a million blackheads and now it's just this white hard-ish stuff coming out of my pores for the past week.



Tons Of Scabs On Accutane?

08 April 2013 - 12:17 AM

I've been on accutane for almost a month and I've noticed my skin drying out but another weird thing is that I'm getting a huge amount of scabs... Every little bump that appears on my skin turns into a scab within the next day or even overnight. When I wake up in the morning, I look in the mirror and see about 4 or 5 new scabby spots on my skin. Is this normal? Almost all the old acne on my face have become black scabs, and I think this almost looks worse than acne. :/ 

Does It Look Like I'm Losing Hair From Accutane?

Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I've noticed my hair falling out slightly more than before and I've been on Accutane for almost 3 weeks. I never took pictures of my scalp before so I don't have anything to compare this picture to, but does it look like I have bald spots?
