Oily Skin from Accutane

Recommended Posts

I started a 40 mg per day Accutane course 4 days ago. For the past couple of days, my skin has been super oily all the time. I have to carry around tissue to constantly wipe oil off my face. Sometimes it even looks like I am sweating. I thought Accutane dried skin out...is this a normal reaction to get?

that's completely normal. it should only last a short while. probably with in a week or two your skin will be very dry. after a few weeks for me, the oil went away completely.
