In Topic: Started Roaccutane On 20Mg

Hi Lugo!


I started out on 20mg, and broke out awfully during month 2. Hang in there!


u were right, its only been a week into second month and i've broken out on my chin and lips.


how long does it last? do you break out every time the dose is increased 

I use Sanex for Sensitive skin and Vaseline Aloe Vera moisturiser (it's oil free, light and non-clogging). These keep the skin clean and balanced, it's tempting to use harsh products on skin but you need to be gentle. I'm sorry to hear you are using accutane, that can't be nice, be sure to get hormones checked and a food intolerance test incase that's causing your acne & maybe Google demodex parasites, they live on the skin and can cause acne.

thanks, i'll keep this in mind

Hi Lugo!

I'm also in the UK and have found it difficult to get hold of so many of the products that people recommend on here so I've had to find my own.



Burt's Bees for your lips, a generic pharmacy Aqueous cream moisturiser to use as a face wash and Palmer's cocoa butter (solid formula) as a moisturiser. 

These are all available from Boots smile.png




i'll look in to the products you mentioned.


i hope i dont break out much, i have had spots for past 7 years so I've gotten used to it but just dont wont white heads or big one on my lips or nose

one month done on 20 mg

just started second month on 40 mg


1st month:

no side effects (minor dry lips on some days)

not using any moisturizers or lotions on my face as i don't have dry skin or feel any irritation. 


hopefully this second month goes smoothly as the first month.

just ignore what others may think of your acne, if they are your true friends then they will not care how you look and still chill out with you and look after you.


get back in the gym because thats one place where you dont need to talk to anyone and just get on with your self and you'll feel really energized .
