So I've just started taking accutane 5 days ago, low dose at 20mg a day and I weigh just under 200lbs. My acne was never really that bad but I have been having persistent spots and red marks on my face for about 10 years now! I have 'sandpaper' acne as the derm says.
Anyway 5 days ago my skin was bearable but now after just 5 days I'm getting a new spot or 3 every day and there quite sore! I thought with a low dose and mild acne I wouldn't really suffer with this initial breakout and especially not so soon. Has anybody else just started taking a low dose of accutane and seeing the same results?
Anybody have an idea how long these initial breakouts last?
I'm washing my face twice a day with clean and clear soap free face wash and then applying isotrex gel onto the face, I'm hoping I will see results fast as the derm said I would so il keep everyone posted!
