Post Accutane-No oil but acne??

Hello there,

I got off accutane in late may and started to get acne back around late September (bout 4 months post).

Although my skin is ALOT less oily, my acne came back. I find this really weird because I always thought my oil was why I got alot of my acne..

Has this happend to others as well?

yup that happened to me, hell i cant even notice any oil on my skin, but i only took accutane for 3months, at 40 mg a day. The acne are just small white heads tho, not as bad as it was before, but i just started another course of accutane.

For me, i think my skin still clogged up and even a little bit of oil, especially near the nose and mouth areas, causes the acne. This time ill finish a full course and take no chances.

Im no expert, but i know how frustrating it is to see no oil, and still breakout.
