can't see a picture yet as it's awaiting approval, but how long ago did you start accutane, and by the sounds of it, it sounds like everything is being pushed out of the skin, which is a good thing. I believe this is called "cactus face" or something similar. I was hoping accutane would do this to me, but it works differently for some people. Also heard that "cactus face" takes a week or two to clear up nicely.

i've never heard of the term cactus face, but that definitely happened to me, after that phase my skin was so smooth.
