I'm into my 5th month and finally looking so much better! Not ONE cyst anywhere!! I have one tiny, stubborn spot that has something trapped under the skin, but it's not even noticeable and I'm sure it will go away, too. My red marks are even starting to fade.

I've been on Accutane for 3 months now. My skin got better for a while. Last time I went to see my dermatologist, I only had a few smaller cysts.

Wish me luck.
