Battle with Acne > 3 Months After Accutane

Posted 21 November 2013

So its been about 3 months since I've been off Acuutane, and the whole time I've been breaking out. So I made an appointment with my derm and she basically told me that the brand of Accutane I used (Claravis) does not work in many cases because it doesn't absorb into the body. So she told I could go on it again in another 9 months but for now she put me o...

My face isn't that dry which is really surprising and weird since I was super dry on 20, 40, and 80mg! Also I was super dry last time I was on 60mg. I'm not even using a moisturizer anymore! Basically I wash my face in the...
