In Topic: Third Course Of Accutane

Happy New Year everybody! So, I've been off Accutane for 5 months now and not a single blemish to speak of. I have gotten compliments on my appearance and even told i don't look my age.... which is 45. Your skin looks great, RichardB. Feels great doesn't it?!

I'm not using anything at the moment. Skin is clear and neither oily nor dry. My derm recommended Neutrogena Acne wash if the time comes when i need it. I'm really hoping for a year or two of not needing anything. Also, my derm reminded me that accutane continues to work for a while even after you've taken your last dose. Any pimples you may still have after your last dose are still getting the business end of the accutane and should clear up nicely. I'd take it again in a New York minute of needed. Very happy with the results. I used to wake up in the morning and immediately go look in the mirror for new cysts/bumps which were always there and my day would start off on a downer note. These days that burden has been lifted off my mind and life is good. Here's hoping you get the same results and are able to live without the stigma of stupid acne getting in the way of life. Cheers!

I'm almost finished with my treatment and last month had one huge zit pop up on the back of my neck. It hung around for weeks and finally went away. Now, I can say I'm 99.9% clear. You'll get there, just have patience.

Patience and the accutane is all you need, man. 2 months is early yet. Let it work and don;t stress about it. You are healing from the inside out. Topicals will make you even more sensitive to the sun. Stop that or you'll be sorry. Also, put sunscreen on your face before bed. It gets in there and works well this way. Of course, do it again in the morning. Some of the spray kind is the easiest. Get the hhighest SPF you can find that's dry/no shine. I fish and am on the water for hours at times. A widebrim hat and spf on the face is crucial to survival. also sunglasses. My eyes are super-sensitive to the elements now.
