It eventually goes away.  Maybe a year?

In Topic: breakout because I switch from antibiotics to tane??

I agree with you.  I really don't think people experience IB (hate to call it "initial breakout" since we are already broken out which is why we are on accutane) but rather a rebound from no antibiotics.  I had gone off antibiotics quite a while before I started accutane so I was already breaking out when I started my course.  My acne got progressively better instead of worse then better.

I'm curious, though, if there are people out there who experienced a worsening of their acne (IB?) and never took antibiotics.

Here is a photo of it guys.  If its a bruise shouldnt hurt when i put pressure on it?  I am so concerned. Plus I had my blood drawn 4 days ago. Do bruises show up after a couple of days? It doesnt hurt. I am so scared.

Those bruises typically don't hurt.  It's really just blood gathered up under the skin.  

I've had some pretty ugly ones.  They turn a different color every day.  You might even see green in a few days.

Hope this helps,

Has anyone experiene skin discoloration after getting there blood drawn.  I had my first blood drawn last week and I new something didnt go well because after I had my injection, my arm was swollen which normally i dont experience.  It was somewhat painful when you put pressure on it for two days.  Now on the third day, i looks normal but the area where is was injected is still visible.  After getting out of the shower today I noticed a black skin disoloration on my arm.  I am not sure if it is a coincidence but it looks like a bruise near and the surrounding area where I had my blood drawn.  Has anyone experience that? It's not painful at all its just that I am concerned.  To me it looks like one of those stains a mechanic would have on his hands after work.  Its not that dark but it looks more like a bruise. Its not swollen but I am not sure what it is.  I tried scrubbing it off but nothing worked.

I think I;ll just see what happens in the next day or so. But any suggestions for now?

I appreciate it!

It's a bruise.  I used to get them once in a while.
