cleared up very late into my course. at month 5 wk2.

my acne was pretty bad...almost severe. things went downhil at the beginin of the year and now im acne free. i started accutane in april and i broke out terribly throught almost my entire course. i cleared up exactly 2 wks before month 6 in october. i didnt think i was every goin to clear up but i did. now, im acne free so there is still a possibility you may too. my derm suggested to continue tane for another 2 months...howerver im currently off the tane bcuz ipledge messed things up but i will be back on it sometime next wk (i hope). btw i loveeeed accutane...side effects weren't that bad, i wanted clear skin so i didnt care much aobut the side effects. i hope my story gives you some hope and relief. i kno how hard it can be...i still haven't fully recovered psychologically bcuz acne really messed me up in the head.

althou im acne free, i have some redmarks and some shallow scars which i hope go away soon or at least get better with time. im in no rush..as long as i have clear skin. its so much easier to put on make up now and so.

here are some pix. i have more pix but they're too nasty to look at but if you want to see them just let me kno and i'll email them to you.

Good to see that you're clearing up. Hope you stay clear for good!

thanks guys. as u can see my face is stll red but i have no acne anymore....so im still in the process of recovering i guess. the redmarks are easy to cover with makeup so im fine wih that. i have some shallow scars on my jawline but its doesnt look that bad. wut i have noticed though is that my scars are get more noticeable as the redmarks disappear. i just hope they go away.

it was a very painful process as u can see...n i have more pix that look much worse.

i weight about 128lbs. 120mg wasnt that bad..i just had joint aches but i was fine. i just wanted clear skin so i was willin to take any pain.

oh, and i'm 100%Latina.
