Accutane and Cysts

Recommended Posts

My question is for everyone who has taken accutane and had cystic acne. I am wondering how long it took for the cysts you got while on the course of accutane to go down and heal? The reason I ask is because im debating setting up an appointment to have this new large cyst injected since it just keeps getting bigger (3 - 4 days now). But if it should dry up within the next 4-5 days i'd rather not even bother going to the derm. I have only been on accutane 11 days now so I am not very dry yet, this is why i am assuming it'll take a while to go away like mine normally do.

Opinions please!?!?!

it takes FOREVERRRRRRRRR. get it injected asap. It will still take a while since accutane promotes slower healing. But the cyst will heal up faster than if you just left it

It depends. I'm on my fifth day and the two things I've noticed already are a) it appears somewhat of an initial breakout may be occuring, but b) everything dries up quickly. Seems it could be different for everyone.
