Verdict on accutane and close comedo?

Howdy everyone,

I have already had a search for info on this but nobody really has a deffinite answer, What does accutane do for closed comedo. I have about 30 of these scattered around the place, you can't see them unless you look really close up but they are still annoying cause when u turn my head to the side in light you can see em. Does accutane get rid of these or what?

I had those scattered all over my face too when initially starting accutane. in my case they took about 2 months to clear (although not fully, but MUCH better in the 3rd month than the first). I hope it clears sooner for you.

I also have them. I am at about 1.5 months and some of them are starting to open up and sort of look like blackheads.

And, my blackheads are gone, so it cleared mine up!

I didnt even know i had these whiteheads (closed comedos) until after the inflammatory acne went away. But the whiteheads turned angry and went away. I am almost in month 3 and i still have a couple of these bumps here and there and some are just now popping up but for the most part they are going away. Also a blackhead is a closed comedo and accutane brough these all out on my nose only (before accutane i never noticed them) but now they are gone and im guessing thats a good thing huh?

Yah i thnk accutane clears all acne but its best at the big stuff!
