not really related to accutane...

ok so i finished my sotret cours (5 months i believe) for my moderate acne

i didn't have any IB, and for a month or so i had a completely acne-free, normal skin (not oily)

now it's been about 3 months post-tane, small pimples have popped up more and more frequently, so in panic i started using BP and dan's AHA+ just about every night

but yeah just my short bio on my accutane journey...

anyways, im only 17 and i was wondering about what age would the puberty stop so i can stop worrying about acne breakouts??

lol just little frustrated because it was the first time since the start of puberty that i had a clear skin for about 6 months, then it seems to be going away again...

About 25. I guess that's about the age that normal teenagers who had acne through their teens to stop having acne.

^ Agree. Folks are still hormonal into their early twenties from puberty. When you hit middle age, you get to experience hormonal fluctuations all over again. Woohoo!

Hi I'm 24 and have just started on an accutane course because my acne has still not gone away. My brothers are 30 and 32 and they still get acne. I'm sorry I don't want to make you depressed about it but for some people it isn't just a hormonal/puberty thing and can continue for a long time!

Maybe you need to go on another course? Or if it is not that bad then hopefully you can deal with it and will improve. Good luck!
