ppl that took accutane in the past read this

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am seeing my derm may 9th I'm ready to tell him I want accutane but first I need to know if there is any people in this forum that took it and already had dry skin before accutane? If so how was ur skin while on it? Because if my acne is caused by dry skin, I would break out horribly.. I need people to tell me if I should still go or not. Thank you ppl! :dance:

accutane will make your skin super dry regardless of how it is when you started. dry skin is not what causes acne, i had combination skin when i started.

well, the cells don't cause acne, it is the improper shedding of cells and clogging of pores, which accutane prevents.

as well as an over-productive sebaceous gland and p-acnes bacteria.

weird...my skin (on my face) never got dry on accutane...on the contrary where before it had been flaky and gross but oily at the same time, on accutane it was just normal.
