Wake up to 84 WHITEHEADS!

Recommended Posts

Im on accutane week 4 and when i wake up nearly every pore on my nose is a whitehead sticking out. Should i scrape off all these whiteheads while on accutane? Will accutane make these things disappear or do i have to get rid of these suckers? I dont see my derm till the end of my course.

By the way these things die down by afternoon which i find weird because before accutane they just showed up after I had a shower for a few minutes then subsided.

Thats just your pores purging... All the blackheads are going to come up to the surface and work themselves out. Mine did this around week 3-4 so you're right on track ! Most of them will just work themselves out (in the shower, or when you're washing your face, ect). I think I might have extracted a few of my own, but its not necessary, and you could cause permanent scarring.
