I don't know if I can take it

Recommended Posts

Everytime I start too see my skin improve and I get all excited I flare up and breakout...

I'm currently on week 11, I'm shocked my skin looks worse then when I started this treatment. I thought 100% that my skin would be clear by 11 weeks not worse... why am I still breaking out I thought I already went through the initial breakout!

I have been through this before, I went through 3 courses of Accutane in my life, and I had the same thing happen. Throughout, each separate course I was on, I broke out. I have to ask you...what kind of topicals are you using, if any? What kind of products are you using...cleansers, moisturizers, shaving products, etc.? This could be a key!

All I've really used is a Cetaphil Moisturizer, and I don't shave very often so I'm sure that's not it...

Agreed with the posters above. Be patient, you're very early in the course. You'll hopefully see improvement within another 12 weeks.

Good things come to those who wait...
