Accutane For Comedonal Acne



Hey all, my skin has been so bad the past 6 months. I have tried various topicals, antibiotics and chemical peels. Nothing worked. The derm put me on accutane 20mg every second day. I always have at least 2 large cystic pimples, usually on my chin but my biggest concern is the small flesh coloured bumps on my cheeks, chin and the sides of my face. I'm on week three now and not much has happened, obviously I'm not expecting to see results right away. Is anyone having success with accutane for comedonal acne?

I am currently on the end of week 1. My skin is super dry, my lips are peeling, and I have dandruff. My face has gotten significantly worse after starting it, but that may be because this is the first time since I was a preteen that I haven't been topically medicating my face.

I'm going to try to start blogging my own experience on here if you'd like to check it out.

I'm now 1 month into my treatment and I have seen no improvement. I don't really expect much to happen for at least a couple more months. The blocked pores are driving me crazy, there are over 100 at least. Will they go away? I'm feeling very discouraged
