Weird bumps on Accutane

I'm into week 8 on Accutane...

Within the last couple weeks I developed something that resembles a pimple on my left cheek, but is not quite as red as a normal pimple - and flatter. It has just sat there unchanged for at least a week-and-a-half now. I also had a more conventional-looking pimple dead-center on my forehead (where I rarely have problems) for at least 2 weeks now... and just recently is it starting to subside. Both never really came to a whitehead... but they just hang around much longer than what I'm used to.

That aside, one other observation of late: most of the new pimples I've developed in the last 1 1/2 weeks are of a much less threatening nature --- and have come to a head very quickly, within 24-36 hours and usually "relieve" their puss within 48 hrs. Of course, the healing process itself is a bit slower.

This doesn't sound all that unusual, though, if I understand correctly. I would much rather prefer, of course, to stop dealing with new pimples altogether, but only time will tell.
