Is there any hope for me?

Recommended Posts

Finished course last Thursday.. Was clear that day but was not completely clear at anytime during my 6 month treatment for more than a week I'd say and that might be pushing it.. I've been breaking out since my course finished... like probably atleast one small zit a day around my mouth... My derm says I have taken the correct cumulative dose for my weight... Is this a very bad sign?.. I just heard from somone that I should've stayed on until I had 0 acne for a month before coming off!

From those of you with experience is there any chance I may still clear up and stay clear in the coming weeks or do I inevitably need some more boxes or even a 2nd course? I hope not :(

I kind of had a similar situation.. I wasn't completely clear when I finished my course in May. I was much improved but nowhere near good (still lots of moderate acne, many blackheads, and even a couple of small cysts). My derm wouldn't let me continue though but said I could go on a second course after summer if needed.

So over the summer my skin HAS improved drastically... it continued to clear up over the past 3 months, slowly but surely. I think your skin will continue to get better. However, it's still not clear and I still occasionally get scarring acne and all the oil and blackheads have returned, so I'm going to opt with a second course.

But keep the faith, it's possible that you'll continue to clear!
