initial breakout... its really getting to me.

im 20, just started 70mg accutane / day. i've been on BP, SA, minocycline, etc...

im on day 10, and the breakouts ive been getting for the last 3 days have been REALLY HORRIBLE.

everyday i wake up, i have 10 fresh whiteheads filled with puss on each cheek (none on forehead or front of face). im working this summer, and it really hurts to have to goto work everyday. i wish i could just hide out at home while accutane does its thing. im really depressed because my acne wasnt even this bad when i started... the last time i remember things being this bad was in high school... it really really hurts to relive this again.

is there ANYTHING i can do to lessen the severity of these breakouts?

also, my face started getting less oily from day 3 to day 8. but somewhere around day 9, my face is now SUPER OILY. when i wake up, my face is GLISTENING with oil!! i've never been this oily before!!! is this normal??

will things get better?? what can i expect in the weeks to come?
