Will it break me out on the face?

Recommended Posts

Well, I was given accutane for my back. Will my face break out too? I havent had a pimple on my face for sooo long. Will it be cystic too? Havent had a cyst in like 5 years.

Thanks guys.

From my understanding (and I'm an accutane newbie) the drug works but bringing all the bacteria to the surface. If you have bacteria lurking under your skin on your face then it will be brought to the surface. Sounds like you might be able to avoid it but it's entirely possible you will break out. From reading the logs alot of people that have never had body acne get some body break outs when they start accutane so I'd imagine it would also work in reverse.
