I know that it sucks to say this because it may not feel like it but things will get better.

I had a horrible initial breakout too. My skin was at levels I had never seen. Literally, there was not a clear spot on my face. But it will get better. I am at my one month mark and mine are healing. It takes time, and I know it sucks, but accutane helps a lot more people than it hurts.

I know what u r thinking. Everyone is being nice and telling me to hang in there but it doesnt help you from looking like crap and now add in the dry lips, eyes, hair and all the other C#$p that goes with tane. Well there is something u can do until the tane takes over.

In my 7th day I had worst breakout ever. Pimples on top of zits. Big ones small ones, fat ones and tall ones. I had never seen anything like it. I looked in the mirror for like 3 hours in disbelief and everytime I walked away I would come right back to look again cause it was amazing. Looked like a before ad for that Pro Active crap. Called in sick to work for next couple days, changed my water filter started drinking distilled water with electrolytes and a bunch of other ridiculous things that did nothing. Called my derm and begged him for prednisone.

He gave me about 3 weeks worth. In 48 hours my skin was perfectly clear. I mean amazing. Started with 30mg tapered to nothing. My skin stayed clear until just recently. (Im in 45th day), and even now it is still close to perfect. Have a small group on left cheekthat might even be a tane rash for all I know but what a pleasure. Dont suffer call the stinkin derm and look better while waiting for the stinkin tane to take effect.

Good luck
