Accutane on closed comedones (clogged pores) ?

Recommended Posts

Hi I have been on accutane for 2 weeks and althought the amound of pimples and cysts forming has severely reduced and the skin no longer oily I have noticed that when I sort of stretch my cheeks I still have many clogged pores and also some on my forhead. They are small white bumps which give a slightly uneven skin texture and look a bit like goosebumps.

From anyone experience does accutane help against these as well or not? I'm really furstrated about this as not only irritating but also with the potential to turn in to pimples.

I have a lot of those, and no it didn't really help with mine, but it cleared most of my blackheads, especially on my nose.

Actually, it could be that Accutane is pushing the "clogs" out of your pores, thus causing all those bumps. Accutane is supposed to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads as well as inflamed acne, so sit tight and see how it goes.
