Accutane Day 20



Hey guys!

So I'm a little down...

I've been breaking out recently. I have 5 huge pimples on my right cheek. Before accutane I never had that many at one time. These ones are big and they hurt. I have one pimple on my left cheek and a couple small ones on my forehead and chin. I look gross when I wear makeup to try to cover them. I'm hoping this is the initial break out and that it doesn't get much worse than this.

I also have developed a ton of blackheads all across my nose and cheeks. There are so many of them. This was never a problem before accutane. I think retin a kept the blackheads at bay but now they are back and worse than I've ever had them before.

My blackheads looked like they were increasing on my nose (only place I have them) for the first couple of weeks but from then onwards it started improving, after about 5/6 weeks on accutane I was completely blackhead free on my nose. I think the frist couple of weeks when they looked like they were increasing was them being pushed out, I went from roughly maybe 50 blackheads pre tane to close to none right now, week 8.
