accutane help..weird stuff happening to me

Recommended Posts

Alright, heres my story:

I was on accutane for around 4 months. After the 4th month, the Derm said to keep going until I notice that I don't get ONE zit in a week. This was at the end of july. I continued taking it until around August 18. I didn't really notice anything.

A few days ago, I was playing basketball, and the ball hit my nose. I then noticed like 2 whiteheads forming, and 2 pimples. I then decided to start accutane up again..I used to take 50mg, but I am thinking of going 40mg for half a month, then 10mg for another half...is this a good or bad Idea? My skin got really sensitive today..I think its from the Accutane again? It got really red after a shower...whats going on? help me out plz :D

I don't think accutane is supposed to eliminate zits and pimples _completely_, just dramatically reduce your zit count to what society deems a normal number of zits during the month. :]

I'd say wait it out. If you break out a bit, then go on it.
