In Topic: Third Course Of Accutane

Just an update, Tazorac maintenance therapy has been working really well for me.  My face is completely clear other than scarring/pigmentation.  I use Tazorac every day, and moisturize a lot... and use desonide if my face gets too, too irritated.

Honestly it seemed to be less effective this time around.  I remember after finishing my first course, my skin was absolutely perfect, blemish free.

 

I'll post periodic updates on how things go since this 3rd course, in case anyone is interested.

Okay, so the Tazorac has been helping... I'm pretty clear again like I was at the end of the tane.  BUT my face is peeling, even if i use it like every third day.  I think I'm using too much, but it's damned near impossible to spread a pea sized ointment all over your ENTIRE face!

Caused a lot of peeling... I thought I could handle the topical retinoid after Accutane.  Anyway, gave it a few days off and reapplied Tazorac today and moisturized.

 

I've got like 3 of those lump under the skin, red, inflamed pimples.  And I can't stop touching them to feel how gigantic they are.

 

Maybe this is just a stage after the accutane till it clears up more.  I don't have anymore followup appointments with my derm.  The last appointment I had was for my last prescription of accutane.

 

I also need to recheck lipids and liver function.
