Acne after accutane

Ive been on accutane for the past 5 months.. Im ending my course in a week.. i was suffering from acne on my back, shoulders and face.. for the most part my acne has cleared up nicely on my shoulders and back.. but I was still having breakouts on my face through month 4.. I woke up yesterday with another whitehead on my face.. Does accutane work less effectively on certain parts of the body than others? For pple who have had to take accutane a 2nd time, did the acne that returned come back with the same severity as before the 1st course?

any input would be appreciated

The acne, for me, came back much less severe then it was before the first course. I had to go on a second course because of my face, by back and neck cleared up and for some reason between the end of my first course and starting of my second course i had no acne on my chest and shoulders and neck, only on my face. Also, accutane continued to work for me when I finished it, for about a month.

Good luck and hope this helped
