Well, I have the red marks too on my face. I've tried tea tree oil, mederma, and honey. Honestly it hasn't worked. I recently bought a glycolic 10% cream and it seems to help a bit. I've only used it for a few days, so I can't exactly stand by it. But I've been told that they eventually fade away anyhow and are not permanent like scars.
Good Luck!!

I actually have the exact same thing on my right cheek. It began as three stuck together and every once in a while one of the three, or sometimes two, would swell up. Now, however, they've been turning into white heads that eventually ooze but even after it opens, I still have a red hard bump. Its disgusting honestly. I am also on accutane, but have been on it for just a month. Will start my second month tomorrow.

Before my dermatologist used to inject them with cortisone. That made a huge difference for me! Unfortunately I have moved over seas and doing this procedure is foreign to people here. So I'm stuck with this nasty thing on my face :-( I can't wait til I see the effects of accutane.

I was on accutane before and never had my acne go worse so this time around is much different for me.
Anyhow, Good luck!

Hey myroaccutaneromance,
I noticed your blog while surfing through acne.org. I just started taking accutane three weeks ago and just started my fourth week. This is actually my second try at accutane. I was on it just under 2 years ago but my acne has come back with a vengeance :-( I always had a bit of pimples after accutane but it just went crazy in the past few months. I think the fact that I moved across the world has also been a factor in my sudden break out.

I thought I got my initial break out after 5 days of starting, but it seems i'm breaking out again :-(( Did you have an initial breakout? I woke up today with EIGHT new spots, so I'm having a horrible day today. Acne just sucks and I can't believe I'm battling it again.

Well, I'm just curious if things are going well with you.
