3 Months Post Tane

Hey All,

I am three months past a 6 month term of Acctuane. I had it for moderate-moderatly severe acne with just major postules, no cystic.

In any case, now (3 months after), I am starting to get small acne bumps by my scalp and a few on my nose as well as oil returning.

Is this just a random flareup or should I expect utter hell again?

What can I do?

Oh, and I am using regular soap and 0.5 salycitic acid wash on trouble areas.

Oil returning is normal -- I actually welcomed it back considering the alternative was lips so dry I could barely speak without lip balm :P

some small bumps are normal...I'm 6 months past (from moderate/moderately-severe with some cystic) and I get the occasional whiteheads that go away fairly quickly (more when i'm stressed). Nothing really serious though! :D

Snakes10 I'm in the same position as you, even got a couple of bumps on my scalp too, which seem to be fading. Fingers crossed. :)

However, to be fair, one member did PM me and tell me scalp acne post-tane was a common side effect which could be folliculitis.
