accutane and oil

Mine has completely disappeared. I was extrmely oily before Accutane. I can actually go 3 days (I don't) w/o washing my hair. Proir to accutane within 10 hours my hair was awfully oily

How long have you been on Accutane and what is your dosage?

I've been on accutane twice. Both times the oilyness completely went away. Boy, what a relief that is, not to have to wash my face 4 or 5 times a day. But...about a month after ending accutane, the oilyness comes back. Seems like the oil production is only suppressed while on accutane.

But the good news is that my cystic acne was wiped-out for good, evening yrs after accutane.

My face is still oily.. but extreemly dry at the same time :-k

It looks kinda like a but vasoline all of my face if I dont put makeup on. The weird thing is that my face was never even oily before Accutain? Confuses me-but I deal with it. Hopefully the outcome will be well worth all the yuck I gotta go through with this medicine
