Post accutane, 1month...little red spots on forehead and...

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I was accutane 40mg for 5 months...completely cleared after 3 months. My course ended a little over a month ago. I had severe bacne..with the occasional regular pimple on my face.

I looked in the mirror before bed last night and I noticed all these little red marks on my forehead. They're not pimples, but just little marks that kinda look like scars...but I've never had acne on my forehead. And a bigger mark on my cheek and it feels like a cyst is forming there.

I never had acne on my face...and definately not cystic acne.

Is it possible my acne is coming back worse than ever, and in a different spot?

its definently possible, not to scare you or anything but i've heard some stories where acne comes back worse post accutane for some people, no one could really give you an answer on this, only time will tell, i suggest you talk to your derm about it if it gets any worse within the next few days.
