Oh Acne And Accutane U Got Me So Down

14 September 2014 - 09:23 AM

This will be my eight week coming...and God I just want some joy...cystic breakouts continuing..and very slow improvement....I also see some ice pick scarring and maybe some other shallow scars....I never had before....trying to keep my mind off it but really I cant go through another month of this crap....im hoping the next few weeks I see some clearance...


Need Some Reassurance...is This Normal On Accutane?

08 September 2014 - 01:00 PM

So about six months ago I broke out severely with cystic pustular acne...the way it spread rapidly makes me believe that is could have been some kind of folliculitis and hormonal issue. I am currently on my 7th week of Accutane and continue to break out in very large cystic type pustules...and underground cysts mostly centered around the same area. cheeks and chin. Is this a normal type of breakout to get on Accutane...with large pustules...will Accutane treat folliculitis and hormonal acne? Im just a little disappointed as its week 7 and im still breaking out nasty...this whole thing has got me really down and im just waiting for it all to stop.


Bad Dermatologist Appointment

05 September 2014 - 03:01 PM

The effects of stress are no joke on our body...in just as little as six months I have destroyed how I used to look. TOday I went the dermatologist and he injected my head about 20 times because my hair line is receding and falling out from stress and Accutane...my under eyes sunk in or got hollow and he told me I need plastic surgery it cant be reversed. 6 weeks on Accutane and my acne is just worse then ever...cysts n pustules scarring my face and neck..and I just too feel hopeless n saddened at the change of my face. I don't go out anymore don't feel good....im praying I can make it through this Accutane and it atleast gets rid of this acne....but even if it does I will probably never look the same


2Nd Month On Accutane And Breaking Out In Cystic Acne

31 August 2014 - 08:23 AM

so its about my 6th week on Accutane and I would think things would start calming down..but its worse then ever and now im scared I will be the few people who Accutane doesn't work for and just make my face worse. As of late I keep breaking out in terrible whiteheads, cysts very large, some on my neck which I never had before....and am waking up to new acne everyday. I am getting so many red marks...and also concerned I am starting to scar...anyone else experience this and clear up? what is the success rate for an adult woman on Accutane...really need some hope


Scabs On Accutane

28 August 2014 - 09:49 AM

So this morning as I showered the scab that had formed on my cheek fell off leaving in its place a red bump with a hole in it...great...has anyone ever experienced this and is it permanent...right now the Accutane just seems to be doing more bad then good for me...scars n breakouts so bad
