Still getting acne?

Recommended Posts

I'm 2 weeks from finishing my 6 month accutane course and I still get acne. The pimples are kinda small but there aren't exactly few of them.. I'd guess it's around 20 (though some are really, really tiny). Sometimes I get periods when I only have it at my cheeks and my forehead is clear, then at other times I get them on my forehead etc. It's like they are "moving around". Is this a symptom of hormonal or food related acne perhaps? I was thinking my acne would have cleared up by now, if not completely (maybe get a few zits now and then) since I'm almost done with accutane. I also had back-acne, but it's been clear for months now, just the face..

I've heard that some people get clear post-accutane, but I'm just concerned that I have the type that accutane can't stop. Also, does anyone know how to prevent from scarring? It seems like all acne I get around the cheeks scar the pores (even the tiniest ones) and when they scar beside eachother they form into one larger scar and my face is getting worse day by day..
