I recently completed my first month of my accutane course and so far everything is going very well. I heard such horrific stories about the initial break out and I asked my doctor about it and he told me that although my acne is very widespread and troublesome I would not have one (initial bw) because I did not have cystic acne. I will post some photos soon. I have had some terribly dry skin though sometimes it does crack and peal at night. I have been using this cream (not lotion) called Cerve cream that my doctor gave me and its non-comodogenic and works really well. Most of the time I just apply it once for the entire day unless I wash it off.
