So the past 2 days Ive noticed like allllll of the pores on my nose and my cheeks looked like they had brown/black stuff in them..Are they blackheads? Ive never had a problem with blackheads in my life, I didnt even think I had ANY of them..It looks like there is sand stuck to my face =( Are they blackheads or is my face just purging all the gross stuff inside..DOes this mean Im about to breakout horribly? Does anyone know when they will go away?

I think it's blackheads being pushed out...same happened to me on my forehead-I didn't even know I had any there!

Thanks Foomph! So its just blackheads? Or do you think they will gradually turn into something worse? Eeep

Be gentle with your skin when washing and you may not have any inflammatory acne develop from the purging blackheads. If you do....it will go away. :) This 'purging' shows you that Accutane is doing its marvelous work. Stay calm and relaxed and look forward to clear skin.

awesome i didn't know that's how it worked!!

so instead of attaking from inside it litterally forces it out of your body? I meant to ask my dermatologist about that but I forgot.

Well, technically, no. The end result sure looks as if the gunk is forced out.
