are you just now starting birth control pills? if so, you may notice you skin breaking out more in the 1st few months because of the change in hormone levels. Also, many people experience an initial breakout on accutane, so dont expect immediate results (although some people clear right away) you should just research accutane so you know what to expect... it is different for everyone and usually depends on your dosage (higher dosages usually have more severe side effects) If you are interested... read my blog. ive been keeping a weekly update of my side effects and condition of my skin. good luck!! you are in the right place for support!
