You're only breaking out on your left cheek because you sleep on that side.

Your dry spots are lighter because dry skin regenerates faster. Use a moisturizer.

You're in a similar position to me.

I'm on month 2 (1st month of full dose on 80mg) and I'm not improving. I'm the same as you, don't get as many new whiteheads but the old ones are taking LONG to go away! Seems this drug makes you scar easier and red marks take longer to go away. I have a few scars on my arm and they aren't healing as quickly as before.

i just finished my 4th mth and i would have flares before a certain time of the month and horrible cysts but for the first time i didn't have any this month.... It may be the same for you or at least i hope so.

So i didn't see any changes till the end of the 4th month

It was the same with me...I only seen improvement by the end of month 4. This doesn't mean my skin is clear. I'm a long way off.

So....sit tight and wait it out! You'll see results over the next few months. :)
