1 Month 1 Week



So depressed. The cysts aren't even finished healing but I got 4 more whiteheads this week. On accutane they look so much worse and so inflamed. I know it will get better but this is so depressing. When I'm not wearing make up it looks like I have the chicken pox. Why. When will I start seeing results.


I think it will get better! A lot of people say the first month is the worst and then things clear up. Stay positive. Think of it this way, most people say they are extremely clear at month 3. You're only a month and 3 weeks away. You can do it!

It will defiantly get better! I have never heard of anyone whose acne didn't at least improve while on Accutane! I didn't see major results until around the 4-5th month, but the wait was worth it! I'm so happy now that my skin is mostly clear! Stick with it and remember we always critique ourselves too much and too harshly!

I am currently on my second month of accutane, and i broke out really bad the first month and a half! i had cysts to begin with every now and then! but, accutane seemed to bring out some really bad ones! it is clearing up really well now though, if i get one it goes back down in like 3 days! so keep it up! it is hard sometimes and aggravating, but it'll be worth it in the end! :)

Does anyone have any knowledge about red marks once the pimples go away? They make my skin look so bad :( thank you all for the support. It's going to be a long journey but I hope the worst of it is over.
