why doesnt it work for microcystic acne?

Recommended Posts

ok so the time ahs come for tane i think. my acne is not awful but after years of antiobiotics and topicals it isnt getitng any better and ive just about had enough. however reading throgh a post on here from a med student he said that people with microcystci acne (whiteheads) are resistent ot accutane? and also those who are dysmorphic have a higher relapse rate? obviously u would not go on tane if you only had a problem with microcystic acne but if thats part of the problem along with pustules, papules and cysts blah blah why would they be resistent to it? anyone make any sense of it?
