Day 82 Week 12?! Month 3

I'm having a really hard time right now

I have broken out so bad in the last few days they I keep breaking down crying , I have eleven actives , my face looks like a pepperoni , I even have random 2 big red spots under my eye lids , my right cheek has exploded , 5 cysts that side sore and scabby ! 3 on my chin 1 on left cheek and 2 on my forehead and sick red marks..

Can someone tell me if this is normal at this stage in treatment ?

I was hoping to have a clear skinned Christmas , this is clearly no way going to happen.

I have cleared from antibiotics in the past in the space of 10-12 weeks so how the hell is accutane making my skin worse after 12 weeks of use!!

I'm trying to not cry but I just want to be out of this miserable hell and be back to normal me having fun and enjoying life

My dose was upped on day 50 so 32 days ago , I changed make up around 3 weeks ago , and I'm on time of the month also but can't think of anything else

Is there a reason why you cant take Amoxil or Keflex along with accutane? Or at least a topical antibiotic like clindamycin or topical erythryomycin?

Some people don't clear until month 5/6. Be strong, you'll be okay. I know your patience dies after so long suffering from this shitty acne but we're here with you. it's a struggle but clear skin will come. Just treat your skin gently <3
