I was clear for about a year after accutane. It was amazing to not have to stress over my skin anymore and get on with living my life. I honestly didn't even think about acne or really appreciate the fact that I was clear for that year.
I never thought I'd see acne again, unfortunately I started getting a pimple here and there again. Which was fine and manageable and I didn't mind. It wasn't acne. I felt normal, like everyone else.
Then I started getting pimples on my jawline a frequently, and the acne slowly crept back. I was in denial for a while thinking I was just eating badly etc and my skin would clear up again. It never did. And now here I am again.
I was on 20mg for the first month and now I've just started 40mg for the rest of my treatment.
I have about six or seven active pimples and still break out everyday. I still get the big sore pimples.
I'm dry on my.. Well.. Everything!
I haven't seen too much improvement yet. I know it's only a month in though. I'll keep you updated!
