accutane for mild/moderate acne

Recommended Posts

I used to always have mild acne but these past few months have been horrible. In the summer I was completely clear so I stopped antibiotics and topical cream. My face was great for months and then after about 4 or 5 months my acne came back at full force. I've never had acne nearly this bad. So anyways, I started my doxycycline again (which i was taking this past summer) but it constantly makes me nauseated. All in all, I have tried over 10 topical creams prescribed by my dermatologist, about 5 different antibiotics, and nothing really works. Now I've been overmedicating my skin and it is red, irritated, flaky, and pretty much horrible.

I was wondering if anyone with mild or moderate acne has done accutane, and more specifically if they have experienced horrible initial breakouts.

Please, please let me know. Any advice/ responses would be appreciated!!
