Battling Comedonal Acne



Hi everyone, i was diagnosed with comedonal acne this last September and i just want to vent my feelings and worries here and also get some advice/help from everyone here. I have a very oily skin and many whiteheads in my forehead  and few in muy both cheeks before, i also had a tca peel last august but these comedones still managed to erupt. So i went to the derm for any treatment for these pesky bumps in my face. From the day I was diagnosed with this kind of acne, my derm also started my Isotretinoin journey. Im taking acnotin 20mg a day and today is my 21th day of it (3weeks).  As with the side effects, i only experience dry lips and joint pains, but my comedones are still present and i think they increased in number and size. Now i think that i have hundreds of comedones in my forehead, some in my both cheeks and i also have 3 inflamed ones. Is it normal for Isotretinoin users to have an increase number/size of comedones/whiteheads?? I hope someone here can give me some advice so i will be able to learn not to become so worried with these bumps.
