In Topic: Accutane and Butt Acne?

07 January 2015 - 10:06 AM

What the hell is happening to my ass!

Never in my life have I gotten butt acne. My acne was only on my face, and sometimes upper back and chest. I was put on Accutane in Septemer (20 mg, then 40 mg, now back to 20 mg), and my ass looks horrible.

Please please please tell me this is going to go away. Has this happened to anyone? =[



I´m experiencing this! I started with accutane on Jan 2014 and then after two months I noticed some bumps in my butt. The rest of my body did clear up but now the problem now is on my buttocks! I´ve been on antibiotics and creams after that but it seems that they are not working! Right now I have one boil  . They appear every 3 weeks or so. I had them during my last accutane treatment (Been on accutane like 3 times but this is the first time with butt problems) Please share your experience!!! I do need some emotional support I´ve had severe acne my whole life and now this sad.png !!!!

ur clothes must b irritating ur ass then, esp if cloth is syntetic so try wearing wool pants or no pants at all ,let ass breath!

it needs proper blood cyrculaton! 


Thank you for you recommendation. I sit a lot. I was using synthetic fiber as well. I´m changing that.


I also went to the doctor and he thinks it´s a bacterial folliculitis. He gave me an oral Antibiotic(CIPRONOR) and some topical wash (Alibour water). He told me is very common in people who go to gyms. 


I hope to get better. those pimples hurt my self value. :(

Hello everyone!
Thank you for sharing your experiences. The things you guys wrote years ago are helping a lot of people.
It's 2014 and I'm very very sad because of the same problem: I'm taking Accutane(3rd month) and i´m getting butt "acne". Please can you help me? Did you remember the name of the medication your doctor gave you?

I´m hector and I had the worst acne I´ve ever seen live (Sorry for my bad english i hope you understand what I mean).

I will tell you my isotretinoin story, I´ve been taking that for a long time!:


  • 1st time: Legal low dose
    • (2002 - I was 17yo)
    • 20 mg daily for 4 months.
    • Initial break out around the first month.
    • Cleared around the 3rd month.
    • The doctor decided to stop the medication after 4 months.
    • Acne came back after 6 months of retiring the isotretinoin but it was less intense, especially on my face.
  • 2st time: Legal low dose
    • (2007 - I was 23yo)
    • 20 mg daily for 4 months.
    • Initial break out around the first month.
    • Cleared around the 3rd month.
    • The SAME doctor decided to stop the medication AGAIN after 4 months. I told him about the cumulative dose but he said that more time on accutane wont help my acne!
    • Acne came back after 6 - 7 months of retiring the isotretinoin... this time it was less intense too!
  • 3st time: Ilegal low dose (I decided to take the problem in my own hands)
    • (2009 - I was 24yo)
    • 20 mg daily for 5 months.
    • very weak Initial break out around the first month.
    • Cleared around the 2nd month.
    • I decided to stop the medication.
    • Acne came back after 6 - 7 months of retiring the isotretinoin.... less intense but as I told you, I had the worst acne I´ve ever seen. So it was bad anyways...

      I just needed some time to live a normal life. I was contemplating suicide but I didnt do it because of my family, my love to them. (I read that deppression was one of the adverse reactions to isotretinoin.... but by this time ... isotretonoin had already left my body... and I thouth that I was deppressed not because of the traces of isotretinoin on my brain... but because of after all my efforts, ACNE  had came back and crushed all my beautiful dreams and hopes and motivations, I really thought I had a chance to live a normal life, a trip to the beach, walking without a shirt... 

      I decided to go on another course by myself... (even if that would kill me on the long run. I needed some good time on my life. So I exchanged "life quantity: years" for "life quality: happiness")

      On the mean time: I found 4 pills of accutane that i had left. So i started taking one per week just to take them. I was not expecting nothing but BAM!!!!!!! After 4 weeks.... My skin oilness was like a the one of a normal person... and no more break outs... I was schocked! I never thought that isotretinoin could be effective at that dose (one 20mg pill per week???!!! the first time I took isotretinoin It took like 70 pills to kick in!! How can this be possible??!!). I started my google research and found people doing this micro dose approach with excellent results! Even some dermatologist were doing this! 
  • 4th Time to now  - ilegal Long term micro dose.
    • (2010 - 25 yo)
    • 20 mg per week
    • No initial breakout
    • Oilness reduction after 5 - 6 weeks
    • No more pimples for about 2 years  :)
    • *Recently I forgot to take my weekly pills for about a month (4 pills) ... and after a while I started breaking out again! Oh I had already forgotten how bad that felt! Brought very bad memories to my mind!  
      I started taking the pills weekly again but I still had one or two cystic pimples on my back every month and since I have dark skin... when they are gone they leave their mark (hiperpigmentation that can last more than 2 years) 
      I was on this problem again. I looked for solutions and decided to double the dosing to 40 mg per week and also include some vitamin D3 (I heard positive results with it, with acne and other chronic diseases so I bought some 10000UI pills)... everything was fine .... but after two months I was breaking out again.... on my back.... just two cysts... but :(
    • My hypothesis:
      • Vitamin A and vitamin D compete with each other. When i add vitamin D, my vitamin A (Isotretinoin) levels went down.
      • Isotretinoin levels stored in my body after the last daily course have already gone down and a little weekly dose like 20mg does not maintain the optimal levels anymore. 


I think will take isotretinoin daily again for one month and then try to lower the dosing to 20 per week. I´m still taking vitamin D3 because I think i´m deficient (I found that Isotretinoin can lower your vitamin d3 levels). And since a few days ago... Zinc. I´ll let you know my progress. Ask me anything!!


Love you all!
