hello, that cyst thing sounds bad! hope it works out okay.

I'm currently on accutane. For the hairloss question, I was really worried about this (i'm male but I have floppy looking hair which i like) and so far, just over a month, everything is okay.. no hairloss. I don't think it's that common.

good luck with the accutane?

I'm in my third month of accutane. Don't have any hairloss - or none that i've noticed. Some people's behavour becomes affected - like mine. But I'd still recommend Accutane. However, you have a catch. You plan to have babies in two years...

If you take Accutane for 4-6 months, then you have a year and a half to recover. Hopefully you'll recover completely but is it worth it? I think they say that you can get pregnant after a month of being off your course. I'd seriously consider it if I were you. Good luck!

i also took antibiotics for 4 years, and started developing HUGE PAINFUL cysts on my chin. dont know if there was a name for it, but they are the worst thing in the world. once you are off the antibiotics for a few months, you will probably not get these anymore. why dont you wait a few months and see how your skin reacts? mine got a little better but i decided to take accutane anyways just cause i was sick of dealing with it
