Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I'm currently taking accutane. I was on 40mg/day for 1st month and my blackheads have disappeared.

Just wanted to share this with you all.

My derm said that Accutane cures every type of acne, pustles, cysts, etc. Except blackheads :naughty: !!!

Weird huh? :think:

if your blackheads are already there it wont dissolve them but it will stop oil which keeps you from forming new ones.

the old blackheads will slowly get pushed out since accutane also makes your skin dry and exfoliate. there is also some theory that it makes the follicle cells less sticky to each other so they arent likely to clog pores.

but your derm is wrong. it has cleared my blackheads nicely.

I have a ton of blackheads on my bad, I've been on a dose of 50mg's for one month, and also 70 mg's for the second month... the blackheads are still there but my back isn't breaking out as bad as it use to.

Should I exfoliate or not on my back?
